When Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum started the yearly pilgrimage to the inner sanctums of the Swiss Gnomes, he could hardly conceive that the ritual would turn into a celebrity bash of the super rich. The Davos venue is appropriate. Only rarified air is suitable for the global Mattoids. Billed as an assembly of business moguls, it really is more of an audition of well-heeled speculators vying for inclusion into the real power elites who make or break governments, economies and political destinies.
East will never meet the West of Adam Smith. China never had a culture or tradition of respecting individual human rights. Why would anyone assume that a regime that houses worker slaves in huge chicken coops would adopt a fair trade economy? The Chinese juggernaut is a creature of Western creation. The Red Dragon never reflects the noble contributions of wealth development that grew a stable middle class and spread the fruits of democratic principles. The Chinese model is a harbinger of the global gulag and the coerced society designed to demolish cherished Western Civilization values and liberties. The masters of political confrontations have found a better way than waging world wars for imposing their planetary dominance.
Much of the coverage, about the tragic killings in Tucson, Arizona centers upon the deranged shooter, Jared Loughner. What is gradually coming out about this strange gunman is now very different from the initial reporting.
Congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford makes a miraculous recovery. Christina Taylor Green is laid to rest, as are Dorothy Morris, Phyllis Schneck, Dorwin Stoddard and Gabriel Zimmerman. Their families mourn this needless loss and the county grieves. So far, the lack of reporting about the full circumstances regarding Judge John Roll adds to the uncertainty. Was it mere coincidence that he was one of the slain on this same fateful day?
The Patriot-Liberty movement has railed against the Federal Reserve for decades. Inexorably attached to the abolishment of the private banking monopoly, the entire political career of Ron Paul is an inspiration for any citizen who values liberty and defends the U.S. Constitution. The Federal Reserve is the Enemy of America. The central cause for the financial collapse of the country rests upon the fractional reserve debt created money racket, which relegates the taxpayer to chattel slave status. You know this is true, and the politicians fear that at some breaking point you will rise up and force a return to honest money.
With every New Year’s resolution, optimism and even the expectation that the future will get better has long been a staple within the popular culture. By nature, people want to believe in a better society. The American Dream means different things to diverse people, but it always had a vision for great achievements and daring exploits. America was great because she dared to forge an independent and freedom loving country.
Las Vegas is the kind of region that evokes strong and varied reactions. Many people see Vegas as freedom and a state of mind, while others curse it as a Sodom and Gomorrah, den of iniquity. Yet when you strip away the glitz, glamour and gambling, you get down to the real guts of the metropolis – MONEY.
