Obama Wants to Tax Your Retirement Accounts
After combing through the Obama budget submitted, Market Watch found a dozen new taxes the Obama administration wants to impose on retirement accounts.
For starters, under the Obama administration proposals, the after-tax money held in traditional IRA or employer-sponsor retirement plans would no longer be eligible for conversion to a popular Roth IRA. Source: HERE
Creepy, Calculating and Controlling: All the Ways Big Brother Is Watching You
“You had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.”—George Orwell, 1984.
Technology—specifically the technology employed by the government against the American citizenry—has upped the stakes dramatically so that there’s little we do that is not known by the government. In such an environment, you’re either a paragon of virtue, or you’re a criminal.
If you haven’t figured it out yet, we’re all criminals. This is the creepy, calculating yet diabolical genius of the American police state: the very technology we hailed as revolutionary and liberating has become our prison, jailer, probation officer, Big Brother and Father Knows Best all rolled into one.

Cometh The Censor
It is no surprise that Washington is stepping up its campaign to censor the internet. Over the years freedom has declined in inverse proportion to the reach of the central government. It had to come, and will succeed. It will put paid forever to America’s flirtation with freedom.
With the censorship of the net—it will be called “regulation”—the last hope of retaining former liberty will expire. Robert E. Lee: “I consider the constitutional power of the General Government as the chief source of stability to our political system, whereas the consolidation of the states into one vast republic, sure to be aggressive abroad and despotic at home, will be the certain precursor of that ruin which has overwhelmed all those that have preceded it.” Source: HERE

The CDC: Mind Control on a Vast Scale
Once upon a time, the CDC claimed that roughly 36,000 people in the US died every year from the flu. Media sources parroted this figure over and over. Lately, the CDC has chosen to change that estimate. It’s now between 3,000 and 49,000 flu deaths per year. That’s quite a loose range. Why does the CDC now waffle so egregiously?
In December of 2005, the British Medical Journal (online) published a shocking report by Peter Doshi, which spelled out a delusion and created tremors throughout the halls of the CDC.
Here is a quote from Doshi’s report: “[According to CDC statistics], ‘influenza and pneumonia’ took 62,034 lives in 2001—61,777 of which were attributable to pneumonia and 257 to flu, and in only 18 cases was the flu virus positively identified.” Source: HERE

The Catastrophic Costs Of Extend-And-Pretend Are About To Crush Europe
Here’s how extend-and-pretend works in the real world:
If a homebuyer has defaulted, give him new loans, or shift his loan off the books into zombie mortgage status.
If a student defaults on student loans, shift the loans into forbearance, i.e. mask the default by putting the defaulted debt into zombie mode.
If a bank is insolvent, give it unlimited access to unlimited lines of central bank credit and lower interest rates to zero so the bank doesn’t have to pay interest on deposits.
If a nation is bankrupt, extend it new loans. Source: HERE
State Department Spokeswoman: We Can’t [Won’t] Stop ISIS by Killing Them, We Need to Give Them Jobs
State Department Spokesperson Marie Harf told Chris Matthews that ISIS can be stopped if we just create jobs for them. She is literally living in an alternate reality. Guess what happens if we stop trying to kill ISIS? They grow stronger and keep killing the infidels. Source: HERE
