Nest Gems – Time for the Second American Revolution

December 27, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

For well over the last decade BATR has argued that the Republic is dead. Now that the Supreme Court has rendered their decision on Obamacare, there can be no doubt that the funeral for a nation, born out of a revolution for liberty, is over. The country, buried in the ashes of totalitarian despotism, is now history.

Déjà vu – Strappado Wrack – ‘Twas The Nightmare Before Christmas

December 24, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
So few of courage, and oh so many who act as a louse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
With goodies for all and freebies for all who dare;

The children were nestled all snug in the beds,
While their future’s have been hurt and all but dead;
And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Have ignored our care and are all over the map,

Nest Gems – A New Way to be Taxed

December 18, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

A subject so near and dear has become a national preoccupation. Avoid thinking about just how much taxation really targets our pocket books. The resigned rationalization that nothing can be done to avoid the taxman is the underpinning attitude that pervades the economy. So ironic that most business decisions are deeply influenced if not outright made by their tax consequences. The entire accounting profession is built upon a produce of reporting and compliance with a sought after goal of avoidance. What other sector dominates your financial universe more than the fear that your affairs will be audited in minute detail and that interest and penalties will be assessed. As any observant taxpayer would attest, abiding by the tax law is a full time endeavor. Hiring legions of accountants, CPA’s, financial advisors and tax attorneys has become one of the few growth industries that seem to be immune to offshore outsourcing. If Congress and the IRS are unable to comprehend the complexity of the tax codes, how can you expect a sub-continent boiler room to be an effective advocate for your very own financial survival?

Déjà vu – From Viet Nam Defiance to Boston Surrender

December 10, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Historically, what separated American society from most other countries was a healthy distrust of government and a tradition of civil liberties. The Bill of Rights is a unique safeguard embodied within the constitutional structure of a road map for governmental restraint. One of the most important restrictions placed upon the police powers of the central government is exemplified in Posse Comitias. The militarization of domestic law enforcement is fundamentally in conflict with individual rights and natural law.

Nest Gems – Rogue Terrorism for a Greater Israel

December 8, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Most peoples that resist the power politics of Zionism condemn aggressive actions of the outlaw Israeli state regularly. Yet most of the western democracies that are under the control of Talmud media and Khazar finance continue to defend the apartheid policies that are designed to purge any prospect of Palestinian, right to return, to the land of their forced removal. No matter what your politics are regarding the Middle East, the indisputable fact exists that the Greater Israeldesign for expanded territory is a core impediment of this interminable conflict.

Why Mars Space Exploration?

October 30, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

With all the excitement over the Mars rovers, the cries for a visionary manned exploration program are back with earnest. If you are a romantic, then maybe you are moved. But if you are a student of history, the fundamental question of purpose needs to be asked. What is the point of sending living beings to distant planets, when our own earth is a confused mess? The analogy of criticism for a Columbus voyage doesn’t wash. The age of discovery involved expansion and exploration that increased commerce and offered hope for a new future. Long space journeys only gratify the egos of governments.

How to Lick the Budget Deficits

September 4, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Government deficits are a way of life in the post republic America. The spending addiction is a plague that swept away the land of the free and the home of the brave. The cultural curse of entitlement ‘rights’ has created a system of mob rule on the bottom of the ladder and champagne wishes and caviar dreams by plutocrat aristocrats. The controllers of the corporatist economy are just as adamant about their ‘right’ to dominate as the unwashed demonstrator defends their latest chanting theme for wealth re-distribution.

None Dare Call It Conspiracy!

“The Carl Sandburgs of the future will spend whole lifetimes trying to analyze the drama of this week and this scene. What it all comes down to – after the assassination of a president, the wounding of a governor, the slaying of a policeman, and the killing of a man nobody really knew – is little Jack Ruby.” – Syndicated columnist Dorothy Kilgallen, February 1964

Occupy Extreme and Establishment Moderate

June 26, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

So much written about the Occupy Wall Street is pure BS. If this street theater was a spontaneous and independent movement, where is the outrage towards the high priest of monetary manipulation, George Soros?

From the outset, civil disobedience is the most sincere method of dissent. Breaking All the Rules is based upon a healthy and judicious resistance towards all levels of false authority and systemic corruption. Therefore, it is with a heavy heart, that the careerist organizers and front groups for the establishment sweep away the noble intentions of earnest radicals. Those enablers and facilitators of fraudulent financial institutions makes a mockery of authentic protection.

Herr Mueller: by what name should we address you?

May 22, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

When the head of the secret police took charge, the people of the fair land looked the other way. A veteran of war in the service of his country, he was well trained for the task that he was assigned. Police work came natural, and his talents were well suited to collecting information about members of groups that were enemies of the State. When he was put in charge of the secret police he involved himself in the tracking down of potential opponents to the Fatherland. His methods became infamous. His orders were followed with total obedience. And the carnage that ensued, will never be forgotten! Or has it?

Raising the Debt Ceiling Avoids the Spending Addiction

March 20, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

The latest example of political hyperbole is that the U.S. Treasury is ready to default on its debt. An actual examination of the underlying facts is that the relative purchasing value of the currency has long ago swindled debt holder in U.S. Bonds of their promised returns. A default defined under this definition is part of the equation. Repudiation of the entire debt obligation is the real fear. Contrary to all the public scare tactics that the financial world will stop turning, the Federal Treasury has ample revenue to pay the interests on bonds and notes that come due. The essential issue is whether the new bond lenders are willing to roll over the debt that is coming due and keep the shell game going.

Public Propaganda Pundits

January 30, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Lord Haw-Haw is alive and well. He takes to the broadcast microphone everyday. You know his name. Actually there are many talk show Nazis that preach their doctrine of the ‘State Makes Right’. But before you think that nothing has changed from when – Talk Radio has Mellowed – was written, you probably have not been listening to the AM air waves lately. Talk Radio has become worse. The Goebbels’ school of broadcast propaganda has graduated to a new level of insufferable anti-intellectualism. The plastic flag has replaced reason and the evil Islamic fascists have become worse then the blood sucking Jew. America resembles the bastion of a goosestep global blitzkrieg ready to pounce on any foe that opposes the Reich of the Fuhrer.

Special Privileges For Feds

If you believe that Martha Stewart is an enemy of the state, you are right. However, is she a desperado that deserves the fate of corporate plungers? Well, the art of stealing from public companies is often rewarded for the skilled crook; but if you are caught in a lie, you are the worst of the worse. The focal point in this soap opera is missed by the media. Back in June of 2002, in Steward of the Public Trust, we asked: “Should Ms. Stewart be tarred and feathered for using etiquette banned by the SEC? Or are we supposed to swing Martha’s stockbroker, Peter Bacanovic, from the highest tree for getting her out of a down market?”

Dissecting U.S. Elections – the People vs. the Pols

October 31, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

The establishment has an entrenched interest in convincing the public that their vote in elections actually decides who is selected for public office. That same power elite runs and controls both Republican and Democratic political parties. Only a neophyte or a delusional idealist believes that the voting cycle reflects the will of the people. When reform candidates engage in the primary process, hoping to win the nomination from either of the two major parties, they face the stark reality that playing ball with the money bundlers means obeying the directives of masters of the universe. These overlords own politicians, especially those who continue in office by winning predetermined elections.

Woman of the Year, or is it?

September 14, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

The game of presidential politics is often described as musical chairs. Actually it is more like “Pop Goes the Weasel”. Since national elections have proved to be irrelevant, tweedledum and tweedledee charades, what’s the point in getting worked up over the next cycle? Well adjusted minds know that the next presidency will just be another administration that wastes the country. Another ‘Croissant Kerry’ run would drive the electorate to riot. A McCain march will never get fundamental troops to get in line. What will the parties on both sides of the same coin do? When in doubt call in the consultants and pollsters . . .
