This News of Import is long overdue, but with family stuff aplenty, the death of a loved one and so many other things going on not to mention that the crap hitting the fan is a routine occurrence under this WH administration.

 

To start with, let’s talk about the average American, the debt ceiling controversy sounds like a very frightening thing, in which failure to raise the debt ceiling is equivalent to a default, to which Pres. Obama has gone out of his way to try and spook the markets. If the giant bond funds like PIMCO and Blackrock which own hundreds of billions in Treasuries of all maturities were truly concerned about a cataclysmic event like a default, an orderly liquidation of portfolios would already be underway and 10 year rates would be going up and not down. Another barometer of bond market jitters is the interest rate spread between our 10 year Treasury note and the German 10 year bond referred to as the “Bund”. If the world was expecting turmoil in our treasury market then that spread would be expected to widen because investors would sell the falling Treasuries (rates go up) and buy the flight to safety instrument, in this case the Bund’s (rates go down). Over the last couple of weeks that spread has held steady, and in the last three or four sessions it has actually contracted by 6 or 7 basis points. The same exercise with the 10 year British instruments called Gilts yields similar results. A bond trader’s job is to analyze credit, and the markets are speaking loudly that right now there is ZERO worry of a U.S. government debt default.

If people in the know actually believed that Obama would fail to pay bondholders which is the law (Not that the law means anything to this admin as records show), despite taking in 5.5 times the amount of money he needs to pay the bondholders, U.S. bonds would be rated “junk bond” status and giant bondholders would be dumping them. It ain’t happening because we ain’t gonna default.

U.S. brings in $200 billion+ monthly in tax revenue. Interest payments on debt = $30 billion. We're not going to default.

What is a concern; The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

Machiavelli presents a world characterized by the principle of fortunaa universe of chance and meaningless motion. And in such a universe, the ambitious man’s eros cannot be redirected towards a Good that does not exist.

Of the 17 shutdowns in America’s history, Democrats controlled the House during 15 and had charge of both chambers during eight. Five shutdowns happened under unified government! What stands out here is not the shutdown itself, but the president and Harry Reid’s public refusal even to engage with Republicans especially when he will have talks for the first time since 1979 with Iran along with other enemies of our country.

Speaker Boehner BROKE THE HASTERT RULE last night. The Hastert rule states you must have a majority of the majority vote to bring a bill up for vote and with 144 Repubs voting NO this is a violation of the rule. This Bill was passed by the Democrats and 87 Repubs who rejected the will of the people.

What's with the Dems and traitorous 87 Repubs not including the abomination of a Senate? Don't they care we have 17 trillion dollars in debt? Don't they have children? In reality it is all about power.

Muslim Jurists of America Urge Hostility to U.S. Legal System

The Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA) declares that the only legitimate law according to Islam is sharia and urges American Muslims to nurture hostility towards U.S. law. The document, which was written in 2007 and presented at a 2008 Houston imams conference, makes clear that the AMJA’s ultimate goal, as described by scholar of Islam, Andrew Bosom, “is nothing less than the eventual subversion of the American legal system” to Islamic law (sharia).
