The globalist one world currency will be very similar to bitcoin

The globalist one world currency will be very similar to bitcoin

Bitcoin

This week the International Monetary Fund shocked some economic analysts with an announcement that America was “no longer first in the world” as a major economic growth engine. This stinging assertion falls exactly in line with the narrative out of the latest G20 summit; that the U.S. is falling by the wayside leaving the door open for countries like Germany and China to join forces and fill the power void. I wrote about this rising relationship between these two nations as well as the ongoing controlled demolition of America’s economy in my article The New World Order Will Begin With Germany And China.

I find it interesting that the IMF is once again taking the lead on perpetuating the image of a failing U.S., just as they often push for the concept of a single global currency system to replace the dollar as the world reserve. The most common faulty argument I run into when outlining the globalist agenda to supplant the dollar with the Special Drawing Rights basket system is that “the IMF is a U.S. government controlled organization that would never undermine U.S. authority.” Obviously, the people who make this argument have been thoroughly duped.

The IMF is constantly and actively undermining America’s economic position, because the IMF is not an American controlled organization; its loyalty is to globalism as an ideology as well as the international financiers that dominate central banking. America’s supposed “veto power” within the IMF is incidental and meaningless — it has not stopped the IMF from chasing the replacement of the the dollar structure and forming the fiscal ties that stand as the root of what they sometimes call the “global economic reset.”

To illustrate how the IMF narrative supports the globalist narrative, I suggest comparing the 2009 “predictions” of George Soros on China replacing the U.S. as the world’s economic engine to the IMF’s latest analysis on the decline of America.

The IMF cares only about centralizing everything from currency to trade to governance. If the sacrifice of the old world system (the U.S. dollar) is required to create their new world system, then that is what they will do. If you have read my article The Federal Reserve Is A Saboteur — And The “Experts” Are Oblivious, then you understand that the Fed is also perfectly on board with this plan for a global reset. The central bankers, regardless of the nation they happen to reside, stick together and function as agents of larger controlling organisms like the Bank for International Settlements.

The agenda is not really veiled in secrecy, as it has been openly admitted to on numerous occasions by globalist media outlets. Mohamed El-Erian, former CEO of PIMCO, recently praised the concept of using the IMF SDR as a world currency mechanism and as a means to combat “the rise of populism.” However, the most “honest” of these incidences of admission was, of course, the article Get Ready For The Phoenix published in the Rothschild controlled magazine The Economist in 1988; an article which announced the beginning of a new global currency mechanism using the SDR as a bridge starting in 2018.

I have noticed in the past month that there has been a concerted disinformation campaign on the internet attempting to debunk the article from The Economist by stating that it “never really existed” and is merely a product of conspiracy websites. So, I will put that claim to rest right now, permanently, by pointing out that magazine and research archives completely unrelated to “conspiracy theory” have the Phoenix issue on record. It is undeniable — the article was indeed published by The Economist and does in fact exist.

Overcoming the Distractions to Achieve Success

Overcoming the Distractions to Achieve Success

Overcoming the Distractions to Achieve Success

For the first six months of Donald Trump’s presidency, the media, the Left, and even some Republicans have become obsessed with the President’s tweets, fake news, and legislative dysfunction.

They eagerly use these diversions as a distraction. And while their efforts have taken a toll on Republicans’ ability to repeal Obamacare and move forward with the Trump agenda, the Trump administration has achieved several under-reported, yet, significant goals.

Order Understanding Trump

In his first six months in office, President Trump has already named 27 lower-court judges, in addition to naming Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. As Ronald A. Klain wrote in The Washington Post, this is “three times Obama’s total and more than double the totals of Reagan, Bush 41, and Clinton — combined” for that time period. The effect this will have on the American judicial system over the next two-to-three generations cannot be overstated. These are lifetime appointments. If President Trump can continue to appoint conservative judges to U.S. courts, these judges will help shape American law for many years after Trump leaves office.

Another important and lasting change enacted by President Trump is his administration’s massive deregulation effort. During the campaign, President Trump pledged to repeal two federal regulations for every new one created, but his administration has remarkably revoked 16 for every one it has created. According to U.S. News and World Report, “the number of effective ‘economically significant’ regulations estimated to have an annual economic impact of $100 million or more has fallen to 58 – half of what it was in the fall of 2016.”

This aggressive deregulation plan is only going to continue. The Office of Management and Budget has created an email address to more effectively identify and respond to destructive federal regulations. But we should not stop there. Every Republican governor should implement a similar communication platform and create regulatory working groups to help seek out and destroy stupid regulations at the state level, as well. If we can quickly cut through decades of red tape at both the federal and state levels, the American economy will take off.

The Trump administration is also helping to strengthen the economy by implementing new programs.

At the Department of Energy, Secretary Rick Perry is building a breakthrough energy program that will lead to American energy dominance, boost liquid natural gas exports, and establish a sophisticated chemical industry in Appalachia and other parts of America’s forgotten coal country. This new industry will create hundreds of new jobs and bring multi-billion-dollar improvements to quality of life in these regions.

At the Department of Interior, Secretary Ryan Zinke is rebuilding revenue streams that were nearly abandoned by President Obama. When President George W. Bush left office, oil and gas exploration revenues brought $17 billion a year to the Department of Interior. However, during the Obama years, this revenue stream dropped to only $2.5 billion, due to his administration’s refusal to use federal lands for anything productive. Zinke wants to put our national resources to use and plans to use part of the revenues generated to renew our national parks – which are the cornerstone of American environmental conservation.

There is no doubt that the Trump administration has made significant progress in its first six months – the liberal media just refuses to talk about it.

This is no accident. This is the Left’s strategy, and Republicans must combat it.

Part of the difficulty and confusion Republicans are facing stems from dealing with the efforts by those on the Left and in the media to fixate on everything except President Trump’s accomplishments. Republicans – at all levels of the government – must learn to see and work past the noise and stay focused on the real impact that is possible under a Trump presidency.

We need to develop a game plan that is simple, direct, and effective, and then use all our energy to communicate it well enough to the American people to drown out the constant attacks from the Democrats and the news media.

My suggestion is to start with serious tax cuts. This will allow Republicans to run as the party of prosperity, jobs, and growth in 2018.

If we can focus on completing conservative goals that build the economy, create jobs, and increase Americans’ take-home pay – without getting too fancy or complicated – we will be very successful in 2018, 2020, and beyond. Remember, the best year of economic growth under President Obama was worse than the worst year of economic growth under Bill Clinton.

However, if we fail to do this, and the Left continues to control the narrative, we run a real risk of surrendering the House and Senate to the Democrats next year – and dooming Americans to another period of failed Democratic economic policies.

Trump News August 1, 2017

Today at the White House, President Donald J. Trump will award the Medal of Honor to former Specialist Five James C. McCloughan, U.S. Army. McCloughan will receive the Medal of Honor for distinguished actions during 48 hours of close-combat fighting against enemy forces near Don Que, Vietnam, from May 13 to 15, 1969. McCloughan, then 23 years old, voluntarily risked his life on nine separate occasions to rescue wounded and disoriented comrades. He suffered wounds from shrapnel and small arms fire on three separate occasions, but refused medical evacuation to stay with his unit, and continued to brave enemy fire to rescue, treat, and defend wounded Americans.

Urge President Trump to mandate Congress share the same healthcare plan as the American people.

NO EXEMPTIONS – NO EXCEPTIONS

Tell President Trump to mandate Congress share the same healthcare plan as the American people.

Last week, establishment politicians in Congress voted to keep Obamacare – the disaster that is negatively impacting the lives of millions of Americans.

But what you may not know is:
Congress is fully EXEMPT from Obamacare and the same limited healthcare choices enforced on the American people thanks to loopholes created for Congress and the insurance companies.

That’s why I’m asking you to join me by calling President Trump urging him to mandate Congress  by executive order to have the same healthcare as the American people. No exemptions, no exceptions – period.

NO EXEMPTIONS – NO EXCEPTIONS
Tell President Trump you want Congress to share the same healthcare plans as every American.

Congress 202-224-3121        White House  202 456-1414

If we can force Congress to share the burden of Obamacare with the rest of the American people, they will have no choice but to take action to repeal and replace our imploding healthcare system once and for all.

Democrats don’t really want to fix Obamacare

 Democrats don’t really want to fix Obamacare

 Steve Balich Editors note: Before Obamacare health insurance was not cheap but it worked for most people. Now health care is affordable, increasing in cost, covers men for women’ s  medical conditions and women for men’s conditions. Insurance can’t cross borders keeping competition down. Trial lawyer lobby don’t want caps on suits like existing for workman’s comp. Republicans in the Senate were more concerned with their political ideology than addressing the problem, shame on them!!!!!!!!!  So now we get to watch Obamacare implode while at the same time people suffer. Deductibles are so high with less and less coverage most people aren’t actually using the insurance. So to insure a small percent of the population that did not have healthcare we make the entire country suffer, and now Republicans like John Mc Cain who ran on elimination of Obamacare do nothing.

Senator John McCain thanked his fellow senators for their support after he was diagnosed with cancer, and says he plans to return after treating his illness.  https://usat.ly/2uv1sRs

Robert Robb: Democrats don’t want to make the insurance available better. They just want more subsidies to prop up Obamacare as it is.

That John McCain showing grit is no surprise doesn’t make it any less admirable.

McCain’s speech on his return to the Senate, following surgery and a devastating diagnosis of brain cancer, was eloquent and obviously heartfelt.

Moreover, I agree with McCain’s call to return to the normal legislative process. Several months ago, I observed that legislating as a process of discovery, rather than of ratification, might be the only way forward on Obamacare.

However, the claim implicit in McCain’s speech, that a bipartisan approach to reforming Obamacare would result in superior policy, is highly doubtful.

The Democratic mantra is: Don’t repeal Obamacare; fix it.

But Democrats don’t really want to fix Obamacare. They just want to prop it up with more subsidies.

We used to have a functioning market

“On Long Island, Trump to highlight violence from MS-13 gang to push Congress on immigration.” -David Nakamura

David Nakamura at the Washington Post details President Trump’s efforts to eradicate the violent MS-13 gang in America’s cities. The President will be visiting Suffolk County on Long Island, which has seen a surge in violent crime from the gang – 17 murders in over 18 months – the Washington Post reports. The President will deliver “a very forceful message about just how menacing this threat is,” and highlight “the systemic consequences of our failure to enforce immigration laws over many years,” a White House aide told the Post. The President will use the speech to lay the foundation of his immigration policy – which includes arresting and removing violent gangs, bolstering the number of ICE and Customs Border Patrol officers, constructing a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, and urging the passaging of the sanctuary cities and Kate’s law in the U.S. Senate.

After the failed healthcare vote, Avik Roy in the National Review writes, “the GOP cannot simply `move on’ and give up on health care. Health care is the biggest driver of our debt and deficit, the biggest driver of growth in government, and one of the biggest drivers of economic insecurity for those in the middle class and below,” he emphasizes, noting healthcare reform isn’t “optional.”

Illinois’ jobs growth is horrible

 Illinois Policy July 2017
Illinois’ jobs growth was worse than every neighboring state, and half the neighboring state average from June 2016 to June 2017, according to a new report. Data released July 27 by the Illinois Department of Employment Security, or IDES, reveals Illinois’ jobs growth from June 2016 to June 2017 was 0.9 percent, compared with a national average of 1.5 percent.
The greater Chicago area fared far better than the rest of Illinois with 1.2 percent jobs growth, but still lagged behind the national average. The rest of the state saw just 0.2 percent jobs growth.
The new IDES release also contained data by metropolitan statistical area, or MSA. Of Illinois’ 14 MSAs, eight saw jobs growth of less than 1 percent. Only five of Illinois’ MSAs saw jobs growth higher than the national average: Springfield, Kankakee, Lake County-Kenosha County, Bloomington and Carbondale-Marion.

The Decatur MSA experienced no jobs growth over the year. Rockford and Danville each lost 200 jobs over the year, on net.

The IDES data underscore a lack of economic reforms in the budget passed by state lawmakers earlier this month, which included the largest permanent income tax hike in state history.

Take Decatur, for example. Moody’s Analytics revealed earlier this year that the former manufacturing titan was one of four Illinois metro areas where the recession recovery was at risk of “coming undone.” Researchers also included Danville on that list.

Decatur residents are in dire need of healthier incomes. Even the hope of decent jobs growth would be a vast improvement.

Instead, the tax hike will force the average Decatur resident to send $580 more each year to state government, according to the Decatur Herald & Review. That’s money that could have been spent locally at struggling small businesses, put toward college savings or spent on household essentials. Instead, it will vanish into Springfield’s sinkhole of debt.

Illinois’ sickly economy doesn’t just show itself in poor jobs numbers, but in paychecks as well. The Land of Lincoln is home to the worst personal income growth in the United States over the Great Recession era.

Illinois’ lawmakers have failed to pass the pro-growth reforms from which neighboring states are reaping benefits.

Take property taxes, which are higher in Illinois than in every state with no income tax at all.

Neighboring Wisconsin’s property taxes as a percentage of personal income are the lowest the state’s seen since the end of World War II. Illinois property taxes are nearly triple those in neighboring Indiana.

But reforms to address the cost-drivers of Illinois property taxes have been stonewalled in the General Assembly.

Illinois is also home to the costliest workers’ compensation system in the region, yet serious efforts at reform have gone untouched by legislative leaders.

And as neighboring states such as Missouri are on the path to income tax cuts, Illinois lawmakers passed a 32 percent income tax increase.

Until lawmakers get serious about economic growth, don’t expect Illinois’ jobs trend to diverge from the weak path it’s been treading for years.

Deregulation is Driving Success

Deregulation is Driving Success

Newt Gingrich July 2017

Deregulation is Driving Success

Democrats and their friends in the media will do anything they can to distract and discreditPresident Donald Trump and Republicans, but not one of them can reasonably deny the massive success of the Trump-led deregulatory agenda – or the huge stock market gains that have come as a result.

Since the start of President Trump’s term, he and Congressional Republicans, led by Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Leader Mitch McConnell, have revoked 14 job-killing federal regulations through the Congressional Review Act. This includes 1,114 pages of needlessly expensive labor rules, arduous environmental regulations, destructive financial guidelines, and other economy-hampering bureaucratic decrees.

Research by the American Action Forum based on impact analysis created by federal agencies shows that repealing these regulations “will save $3.7 billion in total regulatory costs ($1.1 billion annually) and eliminate 4.2 million hours of paperwork.” Non-government estimates suggest cutting these harmful rules will save more than $36.2 billion, according to the AAF.

Investors have welcomed President Trump’s red tape cutting rally.

At market close Thursday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was at 21,796 points, the Nasdaq was at 6,382 points, and the S&P 500 Index at 2,475 points. These are all near record high ranges – and are especially remarkable when you look at where they were when President Trump won election. On November 8, 2016 – Election Day – the DJIA was 3,464 points lower, at 18,332; the Nasdaq was 1,189 points lower, at 5193; and the S&P 500 was 336 points lower at 2,139.

The good news is that investor enthusiasm can and should continue because the regulatory cuts are here to stay.

The CRA, which was part of the Contract with America that we passed when I was Speaker of the House, doesn’t just allow Congress to claw back regulations that were enacted at the end of a previous president’s term — it also requires an act of Congress to re-impose such rules or those similar. After only six months, this115th Congress has used the CRA more than any other in history.

And Republicans aren’t stopping. House members are moving to repeal another backwards regulation through the CRA, which was made by the unaccountable Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The bad rule puts the interest of trial lawyers over the American people, represents 225 pages in the Code of Federal Regulations, and costs $76 million a year.

While President Trump and Congress are aggressively repealing burdensome regulations from the Obama era, the President’s cabinet members are also cutting down the number of rules made by the government.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday that the number of rules put forward by the Trump administration is at a 17-year low, and many of the rules the administration has passed actually reverse previous rules. Sofie Miller of George Washington University’s Regulatory Studies Center told the WSJ that, for example, one third of the 66 regulatory actions taken so far by the Environmental Protection Agency have been rule withdrawals.

Instead of acknowledging (and being happy) that investors are responding positively to aggressive deregulation, pro-business policy, and the promise of tax cuts this year, some in the media are making hay about what Trump is tweeting about the bull market. CNN Money wrote on July 20 that Trump is taking a great risk by publicly commenting so much on market success because, “every president over the past 70 years has eventually encountered a stock market storm.”

This perfectly illustrates what the media still doesn’t get. As I explain in my new #1 New York Times bestselling book, Understanding Trump, our President is a billionaire businessman, not a politician. We haven’t had a commander-in-chief like him in American history – much less the last 70 years. He isn’t afraid of risk, and he knows how to get the government out of the way of American productivity, jobs, and growth.

The Left and the media will no doubt continue to harp about tweets, Washington gossip, and other distractions, but Republicans and the Trump administration are going to continue cutting costly regulations – and Americans will notice.

This New Gun Ban Will Hurt Families Everywhere

This New Gun Ban Will Hurt Families Everywhere

Liberals are known for making controversial leftist policies which threaten traditional family values.

But their latest move not only aligns with their leftist views, it endangers the lives of American families.

And if liberals have their way, families across America are in serious trouble.

Liberal politicians are determined to disarm Americans.

In their twisted thinking, they believe taking guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens somehow makes America safe.

But as most Americans know, nothing could be further from the truth.

And studies show, in cities like Chicago where gun-bans were actually enforced, crime went up.

Breitbart reported:

“Breitbart News reported that Chicago witnessed nearly 4,400 shooting victims and almost 800 homicides in 2016. And the Chicago Tribune reported that the city passed 1,000 shooting victims this year before April concluded. This means Chicago is on track for a year similar to 2016 in pain and bloodshed, especially when one considers the elevated violence that comes with hot summer months.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s response? More gun control and continued limitations on law-abiding citizens’ rights to carry guns for self-defense.

The problem with Emanuel’s approach is that Chicago’s own history proves there were even more deaths when there was more gun control.”

Liberal mayors like Rahm Emanuel choose to ignore facts, but it’s families who suffer.

Chicago’s history proves by banning handguns, homicide rates increased.

And because of gun-bans like the one instituted in Chicago, innocent blood was shed, which could have been avoided had citizens been allowed to carry a gun.

Breitbart continued:

“Chicago banned handgun ownership in 1982, and that ban was in place until the Supreme Court of the United States struck it down in McDonald v Chicago (2010). During the years that this ban was in place, Chicago witnessed homicide rates that topped 2016 by a wide margin.

For example, the Chicago Police Department reports there were 850 homicides during 1993. That is nearly 100 more homicides in 1993 than CNN’s figure of 762 homicides in 2016. Moreover, the Chicago Police Department shows there were 930 homicides in 1994; 921 homicides in 1991; and a startling 940 homicides in 1992.

The figure of 940 homicides in 1992 is nearly 200 more that CNN reported for 2016.

All these murders have one thing in common: they occurred at a time when the city barred law-abiding citizens from possessing handguns for self-defense. They could not have them in their homes or vehicles, much less on their persons. This meant the criminal did not have to worry about his victims shooting back.”

By taking away guns, crime went up. It’s that simple.

If leftist families choose not to carry a gun, that’s their choice.

But by forcing their policies onto all Americans, liberals are endangering families everywhere.

Unfortunately, many major cities are run by liberal politicians who support gun-control.

And if leftist politicians have their way, families will be prohibited from carrying guns, leaving them sitting targets for criminals.

What would you do if handguns were banned in your city?

Do you think enforcing gun-control makes America safer?

Participant in Cliven Bundy standoff sentenced to 68 years in prison

Participant in Cliven Bundy standoff sentenced to 68 years in prison

0 Shares

LAS VEGAS — A participant in the 2014 armed standoff between federal agents and supporters of rancher Cliven Bundy was sentenced to 68 years in prison Wednesday despite pleas from his lawyer for leniency related to his deteriorating health.

Gregory Burleson, 53, sat in a wheelchair while attorney Terrence Jackson stood next to him in federal court and explained how his client’s blindness and age would make him vulnerable in prison. He also said Burleson’s age should be considered a factor in a reduced sentence.

Jackson said Burleson was an alcoholic and that his participation in the standoff was not motivated by deeply held beliefs, but simply the act of a man seeking status and who was manipulated by the Bundy family to aid in their fight with the federal government over grazing rights.

Federal officials say Bundy has illegally grazed his cattle on federal land for years. When agents rounded up some of his cattle, Burleson and others, some of them armed, came to his defense at his ranch near Bunkerville, Nev. Burleson traveled from Arizona to participate in the standoff.

“He became mesmerized by his fame,” Jackson said.

The confrontation became a rallying point for those who pointed to the action as federal overreach, and the trial of Burleson and five others earlier this year underwent intense scrutiny as a precursor to Bundy’s trial scheduled for later this year.

However, the government suffered a blow in April when only Burleson and Todd Engel were found guilty of crimes including assaulting a federal officer, obstruction of justice and interstate travel to aid extortion while the other counts against the remaining defendants resulted in a hung jury.

The government is retrying the cases against Eric Parker, O. Scott Drexler, Richard Lovelien and Steven Stewart.

Jackson said the Burleson was being subjected to “essentially a life sentence.” Burleson’s mother appeared shaken as she spoke with Jackson after the hearing. Jackson said, however, that his client was “resigned” to his fate — even though the attorney said he would appeal the decision.

“He knew it was coming,” Jackson said.

Engel is scheduled to be sentenced in September.
