POLITICAL: Lame duck BHO making commitments he can’t deliver


Obama to Erdogan: US Will Help Find Coup Plotters
In First Post-Coup Meeting, Obama Says Coup ‘Terrible’

Presidents Barack Obama and Recep Tayyip Erdogan met face-to-face today for the first time since the failed July coup in Turkey, providing for a somewhat awkward side-story to the G20 summit in China. Obama sought to reassure Erdogan of his support, and committed to help bring those involved in the coup to justice.

This has been an enormously touchy subject between the US and Turkey, with Erdogan seeking the extradition of a high-profile cleric from the United States, who he has accused of masterminding the coup. Expressing outrage at US reticence, Erdogan and other Turkish officials have suggested that the US was involved in the coup.

You’d think, at the end of his term, he just keep the “ship of state” steady for the next “captain”?

In any event, it’s not the USA’s President to “help” a foreign nation. 

And, there certainly enough chatter that it was Erdogan’s “false flag” operation to discredit his opponents and ensure his position. 

Also, he’s been taking Turkey away from its secular past and to the Islamic fundamentalists.

So, BHO should be like the Swiss and MYOB!

MONEY: The “Secret Sauce” = Stable Currency


The “Secret Sauce” of the Byzantine Empire: Stable Currency, Social Mobility
September 1, 2016
How did Byzantium endure for 1,000 years after the fall of Rome?

A stable currency. When the Empire devalued its currency for the first time in the 13th century, it triggered a long-lasting loss of faith in the currency. This devaluation was the beginning of the end, as the Empire never recovered its financial footing.

*** end quote ***

Well, the USA certainly missed the boat on this one. The US$ has lost 99% of its value in the last 40 years.

How do we turn that about?

It’s easy. END THE FED!

The Federal Reserve Bank is a misnomer. IT ain’t “federal”. It reserves nothing. And, it ain’t a “bank”. It is a private cartel of the elite banks run for their benefit and that of the entrenched politicians.

Tie the value of the dollar directly to gold and silver as the Dead Old White Guys had in the Constitution. (They knew the ravages of “paper money” inflated by bankrupt Gooferments.

Will we?

I doubt it.
