Keep an eye on Turkey.

Not good.

Evans-Pritchard: Flee to Mars If America Commits Worst Error Since 1931


The Telegraph‘s Ambrose Evans-Pritchard screeches the best headline I’ve seen thus far in the American governmental debt crisis.

There will be other candidates for that honor, however.

Bet on it.

Barnhardt: How Liberty Dies


From Ann Barnhardt:

HOW LIBERTY DIES
POSTED BY ANN BARNHARDT – JULY 28, AD 2011 8:50 AM MST

The “media” is abuzz this morning with calls for Obama to unilaterally raise the debt ceiling himself. Rep. Clyburn, who is third in line in the House (and who named his daughter ‘Mignon’, as in ‘Filet Mignon’, because he is really, really intelligent and classy like that) is now calling for Obama to unilaterally raise the ceiling.

We know from the exposure of “Journolist” that the media and press colludes on these talking points with guidance from the Obama regime. We also know that all of the debt ceiling negotiations are total and complete kabuki. There are no spending cuts – only booking as “cuts” money which the government says it will NOT spend ten years from now.

It is all meaningless.

Guys – ten years ago today the Twin Towers were standing. NOTHING Washington says about “ten years from now” is ever going to happen – and every single one of them know this. And also understand that ObamaCare, if not fully repealed, will cost AT LEAST TEN TIMES what they are saying it will cost. ALL government entitlement programs cost 12-20 times their initial cost estimate. They are saying $2.6 trillion. It will be $26 trillion at minimum – which OBVIOUSLY would collapse the country just by itself. I doubt very seriously that this Republic will exist in its current form ten years from today.

It appears that Congress is going to do nothing, London will downgrade our credit rating (we are almost certainly going to be downgraded no matter what), interest rates will uptick, Obama will then unilaterally raise the debt ceiling $2.4 trillion in order to “save the country”, which is what Geithner told Congress was going to happen back in May anyway. Due to the additional economic pressure caused by the interest rate uptick, the Federal Reserve will then declare that QE3 is “necessary” and print several trillion more dollars. The Dollar Index will drop below all-time lows at 70.80, and then it will be over.

And so, what we will have is exactly what the Obama regime originally wanted back in May, except Obama will now have dictatorial, super-constitutional power in addition to $2.4 trillion to hand to the Unions, GE and the Muslim Brotherhood.

This is how liberty dies.

With thunderous applause.

Gunwalker: More Calls For An Independent Investigator


David has the story.

Does anybody think DOJ, FBI, and BATFE can clean their own house?

Thought not.

Sí, se puede


Read everything at this Zero Hedge post.

Then pass it to your tribe members.

Yes, we can.

The Noble Lie


Bill links to Craig, who links to Sgt. Jarhead.

Independent thinking, especially coupled with consequent action, is dangerous.

Be dangerous.

Resist.

Fred says it all.

Read it and see if you agree.

Billy Beck: Here’s How You Do It

From Billy Beck:

“If you think you have a right to force me to pay for your health care, then why don’t you have a right to force me to pick your cotton?”

It was Jeffrey Quick who asked that over at Facebook, and it’s one of the most elegant questions that I have ever seen on any subject.

I think I might have this done on a T-shirt, and I’m going to wear that sonofabitch out until someone answers me.

Alvie: Super Congress!

Gunwalker: “A Perfect Storm Of Idiocy”


David sends the latest, along with Mike’s post from last night.

Help spread the word – i.e., a quick WTF phone call to your Congresscritters, or any other means necessary.

Returning now to the beach….

Vacation


As President Camacho said in Idiocracy:

I know sh*t’s bad…

Don’t care.

Having fun.

You do the same.

See ya in a few days.

Sultan Knish: Edge Of The Spending New Frontier


Read it all.

The reality is that most junkies damage or destroy all around them, and finally kill themselves with their demons.

Shan’t be any different this time, either.

Pure Awesomeness
