Greetings good citizen,

We all know the corporate owned media, er, ‘manipulates’ the information it provides us to ensure it has just the right amount of spin on it. Too much and you won’t believe it but not enough and you might just detect that something is amiss.

And you have to admit, the fuckers are good at what they do, despite the clownish appearance of some of the stuff they are forced to deliver…and that’s another important thing to keep in mind, the default setting is to not tell you ANYTHING. If something is said at all it is because saying nothing would be worse.

Thus do they often say stupid, nonsensical things in order to avoid saying nothing…

But every once in a while even the best ‘slip’. Certain details shake loose that prove nothing by themselves but ‘point’ in a particular direction…

And that’s what I think I have uncovered today…but you already know I’m a few fries shy of a Happy Meal!

So it could be something and it could be nothing…

If I’m right, we’ll know either way sooner than any of us suspects!

Today started off typically enough with this story that provides ‘evidence to the contrary’ to yesterday’s inexplicable market rally:

For four decades, US real per capita disposable income has risen at ~20% a decade. For the average working man, that is a doubling of disposable income in a typical working life. The last 5 1/2 years, however, have seen no change whatsoever - the worst performance in at least half a century.

Naturally, I stumbled upon the, er, ‘evidence’ next…but it was something that happened YESTERDAY that made it click together: (so the following is from yesterday’s SAR)

From Wikipedia: The Constitution does not authorize the President to use signing statements to circumvent any validly enacted Congressional Laws, nor does it authorize him to declare he will disobey such laws (or parts thereof). When a bill is presented to the President, the Constitution (Art. II) allows him only three choices: do nothing, sign the bill, or (if he disapproves of the bill) veto it in its entirety.

Obama’s use of signing statements has clearly shown his willingness to continue the George W. Bush legacy– not only of torture and illegal detainment, but in the dangerous trend of de facto rule by “executive fiat.” Worse, such signing statements put in place a precedent for future presidents to follow– or expand upon.

Further, Barack Obama has continued to backslide on his campaign promise not to use signing statements and executive orders to circumnavigate legislation signed into law. RELATED (Feb. 2010): Obama Breaks Yet Another Key Campaign Promise on Executive Orders, Signing Statements

Is anyone ‘surprised’ that ‘Uncle Tom’ signed this odious piece of legislation…intended to rob any who disagree with the status quo of their rights by denying them a trial?

The Constitutional Lawyer I voted for never would have done this…but this nigga did.

Then we have this article this is what leads me to think things are going to fall apart in pretty short order:

These are serious offenses. But it becomes even worse if JPM afterwards sought to withhold the stolen funds and cover up the transactions, impeding an official investigation. And then their legal maneuvering afterwards to cut the customer interests in the courts is of course beneath contempt.

Nasty business indeed. I wonder how long the Obama Administration and the Congress are going to cover this up. I am sure the details are known to the regulators already.

Am I making mountains out of molehills?

Probably…but you have to admit these are mighty ‘ballsy moves’ being made by the status quo and it’s happening right under our (largely unsuspecting) noses.

If we take each case individually they are all easily dismissed. The stock market being up 250 points one day only to be down 50 the next can be brushed off as ‘animal spirits’.

Um, Il Duce’s signing away of our constitutional rights can easily be dismissed as not wanting to appear ‘weak on defense’…(or weak between the ears/knees, pick one.)

Perhaps this is merely ‘the price you pay’ for being a puppet…let someone else pull the strings and history will still point the finger of shame at YOU!

The question without answer is, once all is said and done, was it worth it?

I suspect the public ‘fails to appreciate’ the true significance of ‘selectively suspend able’ rights.

Perhaps this is another incidence where I am giving the public more credit than it deserves.

We shall see…because yesterday, good citizen, the ‘true rulers’ of this capitalist clusterfuck, the ‘Royal wannabes’ if you will, declared war upon the 99%!

And if it is war they want, then it is war they shall have!

Happy New Year, good citizen!

Thanks for letting me inside your head,


Brief post script: The rule of law is predicated upon ‘equality’. Once you start deciding who, er, ‘deserves’ the protection of the law and who doesn’t, the ‘rule of law’ goes right out the window and you’re left with the ‘do as I say and not as I do’ situation.

As of yesterday, the rule of law ‘legally’ ceased to exist here in the USA…and Gegner is NOT a Lawyer.

Let’s see how this turn of events plays out on the world stage? (Now that we are officially a lawless, rouge nation.)

Final bit of advice…don’t let them take you alive.
