FORMER STAFFER WHO MAINTAINED HILLARY CLINTON’S PRIVATE EMAIL SERVER TO PLEAD THE FIFTH

Pagliano worked as Hillary’s IT director during her 2008 campaign. Starting in May 2009 he was hired by the State Department where he served as special projects manager to the Chief Technology Officer. That title also included responsibility for continued maintenance of Clinton’s home server. Pagliano left his position in February 2013, the same month Clinton stepped down as Secretary of State.

Now we are getting somewhere.

I’d now subpoena all of his direct reports during that period of time.

Get all the folks on the record as invoking the Fifth.

Then, start handing out “qualified immunity” (i.e., get out of jail free cards).

That will have “the rats deserting the sinking ship” and The Truth will come out.

Argh.

POLITICAL: Read the Bills Act has been referred to committee; argh!

Saturday, August 29, 2015

Mr. Ferdinand Reinke
1641 International Dr Unit 414
McLean, VA 22102-4831

Dear Mr. Reinke:

Thank you for contacting me about H.R. 1831, the Read the Bills Act. I appreciate hearing from you.

On June 15th, 2015, Senator Rand Paul introduced S. 1571, legislation to require Congress to post potential bills online for a minimum of seven days before voting on passage of them. In addition, all legislation would have to be voted on by a roll call vote.

The Read the Bills Act has been referred to the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration. Please be assured that I closely review legislation that comes before the Senate, and I will be sure to keep your views on this important issue in mind.

Again, thank you for contacting me.

Sincerely,

Signature

Tim Kaine

Anyone care to tell me how low the unemployment rate is?

Everyone always is saying the “economy is recovering from a short recession”.

What a joke.

Go to any mall and count the vacant stores. That’s malinvestment.

Check out the number that have left the workforce. After a while, they don’t count as unemployed.

Look at the numbers on “disability”.

And yet the political class of politicians and bureaucrats are doing just fine.

Argh!

POLITICAL: IMHO it will be the debt that drowns the USA

Does “Creative Destruction” Include the State?
By Charles Hugh Smith

*** begin quote ***

Under the tender care of the state, we now have uncompetitive, inefficient parastic cartels dominating higher education, national defense, healthcare insurance, pharmaceuticals and hospitals– to name but a few of the major industries that are now state-enforced cartels thanks to the heavy hand of the state (i.e. regulatory capture ).

*** end quote ***

Why can’t “empires” fail?

It has happened all through history.

IMHO it will be the debt — and unfunded liabilities —that drowns the USA. It was the failure of the USSR centralized economy that brought it down.

Only truly free markets maximizes everyone’s outcomes with a minimum of inefficiency. 

Only “capitalism” lifts the poor to a higher standard of living without conflict. (Even Bono recognized “enterprise” was better than “foreign aid”.)

It seems like Gooferment is the instrument of poverty. Look at Africa!

Look in the USA. Between the welfare “prison” and the “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs”, the minority communities have been devastated!

Argh!

POLITICAL: HRC and politicians in general don’t know economics

Hillary’s Inconceivably Stupid Capital-Gains Tax Scheme
By Larry Kudlow | Friday, 24 Jul 2015 09:44 PM

*** begin quote ***

So if investment is the problem, what does Hillary Clinton go out and do? She proposes jacking up the tax on investment. It’s almost inconceivably stupid. 

In her latest economic speech, Clinton proposes doubling the capital-gains tax rate on the profit made from asset sales (stocks, bonds, real estate) held a day less than one year up to two years. Right now, if you take a capital gain a day more than one year, you are taxed at a 20 percent rate. Actually, it’s 23.8 percent when you include the healthcare surtax. So under Clinton’s brilliant new play, you’d be taxed at 43.4 percent — the top individual cap-gains rate of 39.6 percent plus the 3.8 percent Obamacare surtax.

That means, instead of keeping 80 cents on the additional dollar of profit, you’d only keep 56.6 cents — a 30-percentage-point reduction in the take-home-pay reward for taking an extra dollar’s investment risk.
This will create a tall barrier to investment — what we don’t need. If you tax something more, you get less of it. 

*** end quote ***

I rant a lot about the corporate income tax. Only real people pay taxes. Corporations are merely fictions that hide the Gooferment’s taxes from sight. 

When you try to figure out how much tax you really pay, look at a can on beans and try to guess what percentage of the price is really hidden taxes. Don’t forget all the incremental taxes along the way from the bean field to the store. Argh!

And, who owns all the capital invested in stocks and bonds — pension funds.

So, the political class is robbing the taxpayers blind. 

Argh!

POLITICAL: “extrajudicial comments about a matter pending before the court”

WND EXCLUSIVE
LETTER: KAGAN, GINSBURG ACTED ‘UNETHICALLY AND UNLAWFULLY’
Constitutional experts call for review of Supremes’ marriage ruling
Published: 2 hours ago

*** begin quote ***
 
The motion said the “extrajudicial comments about a matter pending before the court violate Canon 3A(6) of the Code of Conduct for United States judges: ‘A judge should not make public comment on the merits of a matter pending or impending in any court.’”
 
The controversy resurfaced later, because even after being told of the appearance of a conflict of interest, Ginsburg again officiated at a same-sex wedding, as the New York Times reported.
 
The paper said that with “a sly look and special emphasis on the word ‘Constitution,’ Justice Ginsburg said that she was pronouncing the two men married by the powers vested in her by the Constitution of the United States.”
 
*** end quote ***
 
Have to admit that when SCOTUS decided to hear this matter that I thought three of the Justices were biased based on their previous statements and action — Stevens, Kagan, and Ginsburg.
 
Unfortunately, nothing seems to matter but the “Secular Progressive” agenda.
 
Everything gets swept away or ignored before it.
 
Anyone who expects “justice” in a Gooferment “court” will be sadly disappointed. 
 
I gave up on the Court after the Kelo decision.
 
Argh!
 
Hence my belief that “secession” is the only way to get back to a “libertarian” somewhat Constitutional Gooferment.
 
No man or group of men—including any group of men calling themselves “the government”—is morally entitled to initiate (that is, to start) the use of physical force, the threat of force, or any substitute for force (such as fraud) against any other man or group of men. “The Market for Liberty” Linda & Morris Tannehill (1970)

POLITICAL: The death panels are back?

Will Your Doctor Include Nutritional Therapy In End-Of-Life Discussions?
Medicare To Incentivize Death By Paying Doctors For End-Of-Life Talks
By Bill Sardi
July 13, 2015

*** begin quote ***

End-of-life consultations

Will your physician be recommending vitamin C, vitamin D, fish oil or vitamin B1 to your loved ones with hopeless terminal diseases?  I sincerely doubt they will.   Doctors say nutritional therapy is unproven, but it is certainly not disproven. 

Even if these nutritional therapies are of marginal benefit, they are non-toxic and inexpensive.  Even if just palliative (relieving pain or alleviating other discomfort) they would serve Medicare patients better than expensive toxic therapies.

Why is conventional medicine so reticent to conduct more convincing larger studies that employ nutritional therapy especially among terminal patients who have little or no hope? 

You can see from the evidence presented here, by not putting nutritional science into practice they are already culling the population and reducing Medicare costs by neglectful attrition.

The joke at the VA hospitals among old vets is that their doc is trying to kill them.

The joke at the Indian (Gooferment) hospital system is not to get sick in the last half of the year when they run out of funds.

Sarah Palin was excoriated for mentioning “death panels”.

But now the system is broke (by any measure — debt, deficit, or dishonest money — and they have to reach into their bag of tricks which only contains one thing — kill the old and sick.

Argh!

How dumb are “We, The Sheeple”?

Very.
