The U.S. Debt, not including unfunded liabilities, is over $17 trillion dollars. The sociopaths who are driving the titanic will be arguing over raising the debt ceiling again. If we look back to September of 2011, which was the last loud debt-ceiling argument, gold rose 21% in a period of three months while politicians caused a major corrosion of confidence in our leaders. When governments are broke, everything is fair game.
Government officials are parasites; they don’t produce anything. They only feed off of those who do. As one person said, the fatter the government, the skinner the people. And when government officials cannot meet their obligations or fulfill the promises they made to the public, they’ll figure out ways to appropriate the public’s money to fund their projects. Government officials don’t produce wealth; they only redistribute your wealth. Desperate government officials will always resort to expropriation, which is outright confiscation.
If the Federal Reserve is currently buying 90% of the U.S. Treasury market and they are going insolvent, who do you think the government will lean on to pick up the slack? The answer is YOU. Ten thousand Baby Boomers will turn 65 years-old every day until 2030. And while the government has a debt problem of $17 trillion, not so coincidentally, our country’s IRAs, 401Ks and retirement accounts amount to that same number: $17 trillion. What a convenient resource for the Federal Government.
So here’s the plan: The government will nationalize retirement accounts like IRAs, 401Ks, pensions, 403Bs, etc. so that you will be forced to use a portion of your retirement wealth to purchase U.S. government debt – debt that will ultimately default, as it is not possible to sustain our astronomical debt nor the deficits that create it.
Plan to Nationalize Private 401K and IRA Retirement Accounts
If you do some research on US Bill “HB5337,” you will find the plan to nationalize retirement wealth. On May 6, 2012 Lauren Schmitz, a research analyst at the Bernard L Schwartz Center for Economic Analyst (SCEPA), introduced HB5337. This 401(k)/IRA de-privatization is the brainchild of Teresa Ghilarducci, whom through funding from the White House and the Ford & Rockefeller Foundations engineered a new “Regulatory & Tax Incentive.” The purpose is to force Americans to convert their Retirement Accounts into Government Managed accounts.
This plan to nationalize private 401K and IRA retirement accounts is being deceptively publicized as the government protecting the public against business failings or state bankruptcies. Your cash, your retirement funds, your bank deposits and your investments are at huge risk of being confiscated by the government through some contrived reason or another.
Bloomberg buys an anti-gun group – the Minnesota Legislature is next!
Welcome to the coldest weather I’ve seen in Minnesota during my nine years in the state!
Despite the cold, there have been many developments over the past week on the gun rights front.
First, Mark writes below about the latest news from the disloyal opposition – the merger of Mayor Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns and the new group Moms Demand Action.
Of course, it’s really not a merger of equals. Bloomberg bought out Moms Demand Action and brought their social media gun-banning savvy into his group of well-funded anti-gun Mayors. It’s going to make for an interesting year in Minnesota.
This past weekend, Mark and I were at AM1280’s Northern Alliance Radio Network with Mitch Berg talking about the upcoming session and our efforts for the 2014 elections.
Later this week, the Advisory Committee on Capitol Security will meet to approve their final 2013 report to the legislature. We’re expecting anti-gun Public Safety Chair – Representative Michael Paymar – to propose yet another gun ban at the Capitol.
Now would be a good time to drop an email or phone call to your state Representative and Senator to let them know where you stand on the issue.
In just a few days, legislators can “pre-file” their 2014 bills and committees can begin having hearings. Our friends at GOCRA are monitoring these developments closely – and we’re working together to keep our efforts in sync where appropriate.
Chairman’s Corner: Moms Demand Illegal Action
One of the unfortunate realities in Second Amendment activism is that the gun-grabbers are extremely well-funded and well-organized at a national level. We’ve written at length about how former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is bringing his fat anti-rights wallet to Minnesota in 2014, but there is another threat on our radar which has been shoved to the forefront due to recent events.
Moms Demand Action is an “astroturf” organization that was created the day after the Newtown tragedy in the best anti-gun tradition of let-no-murdered-child-rest-in-peace-when-they-can-be-exploited-for-political-gain.
Nobody starts a professionally organized lobbying group that quickly. They were lying in the tall grass, waiting to take advantage of a criminal’s deranged act.
In politics, “astroturfing” is a political tactic whereby a professional lobbying organization attempts to disguise itself as a grassroots movement.
They now boast 130,000+ followers across all 50 states.
Those of us working to protect our Second Amendment rights from the lies of Moms Demand Action have long speculated that Michael Bloomberg was funding their operations, and our suspicions were recently confirmed when Moms Demand Action merged with Bloomberg’s flagship group Mayors Against Illegal Guns.
This is unbelievably dangerous for all Minnesotans who value their fundamental freedoms.
Moms Demand Action is savvy with social media and highly effective at messaging discredited or false information to their target demographic…suburban mothers. It is their belief that such an audience will be an extremely effective force for manipulating government action through unsubstantiated fears and purely emotional action.
Unfortunately in Minnesota, such tactics play very well with the metro Democrats who currently control our legislature. What Moms Demand Action has not had to this point is direct and public financial support from a rich anti-rights zealot, but that has now changed.
Michael Bloomberg himself is the primary financier of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, which gives them a bottomless pit of money to conduct their anti-rights activities. Bloomberg has a net worth of over $30 BILLION dollars.
The NRA’s income in 2012 was less than 1% of that number, and their political budget is much smaller than that. If the NRA can’t muster more than a fraction of a percent to match Bloomberg’s blood money, how can we hope to convince an already anti-gun prejudiced legislature of reality?
It’s going to take everyone going all-in. There’s no other way to do it, my friends.
We need to counter the flood of anti-gun money that is coming into Minnesota. We have to proudly support pro-Second Amendment candidates and prove to bullies like Michael Paymar, Ron Latz, and Al Franken that we will not stand in the corner while they tell us what restrictions they think are “reasonable” on our absolutely non-negotiable right to keep and bear arms!
We have a chance to take back our government in 2014, so that we don’t have to fear for our God-given rights every time the Minnesota legislature is in session.
Stand with us…not in the dark corner that anti-rights fanatics like Latz and Franken would force on us, but in the open as proud, law-abiding Minnesota gun owners!
