Economy Bounces Back?
The Conference Board reported Friday that its index of leading economic indicators rose 0.9% last month, significantly faster than the revised 0.1% rise in September and the 0.3% increase in August. The economy, after growing at an anemic pace of just 0.9% in the first six months of the year, grew at a 2.5% rate in the July-September quarter. Some analysts are looking for even stronger growth in the current October-December quarter. – AP
Dominant Social Theme: President Barack Obama finally turned the corner.
Free-Market Analysis: We don't believe this. Do you? This is part of a kind of directed history that we've been reporting, in our view. Suddenly the US numbers are showing an uptick. Really?
Nope. It's likely just part of a larger narrative, as it affects the US economy and politics. The idea is apparently to re-elect Barack Obama (left) by reporting on good economic news even when it's not there.
But we think it runs even deeper than that. Many electoral vote-registering machines are computerized by now and many have no verifiable "paper trail." This means that the elites can simply create such a narrative and then elect whomever they wish to. During the Bush voter fraud was terrible, in our view. Has it improved? Here's an October 2011 letter to the Baltimore Sun:
Lack of paper trail leads to concern over Laurel's new voting machines ... I feel some concern about the "new" voting machines being introduced in the Nov. 1 elections in Laurel. These ELECTronic 1242 machines provide no paper trail, or any voter-verifiable record that one's vote has been properly recorded. Lack of a paper trail also presents difficulties in the event of needing a recount. (The only printout available seems to be the totals from each machine at poll closing.)
In doing some Internet research on these machines, I have found documentation that during their usage in many areas of the country over the last 20 years they have often been involved in erroneous vote counts. A notable incident was in Franklin County, Ohio where phantom votes appeared in the 2004 presidential totals, with President Bush receiving 4,258 votes and John Kerry receiving 260 in a precinct with only 638 voters.
See, it's still happening. Yesterday, in an article entitled "Parallels Between Early 20th Century and Present Are Scary," we laid out a roadmap that showed a good deal of similarity between the early 20th century and the early 21st.
It seems to us that the power elite is still operating from the same playbook. The idea is to crash economies (via central banking), start wars and generally make people so miserable that they will demand more government solutions. This happened in the 20th century. In the 21st, President Obama is to play the role of FDR, and in fact, he has encouraged comparisons.
However, in order to make this scenario viable, Obama apparently needs to get reelected. And in order to do that, the economy has to seem better, even if it is not. This is the false-problem paradigm that we see playing out in Europe as well. Europe is in terrible shape, but now the technocrats are being put in charge.
These technocrats are actually part of power-elite circles ... the Bilderbergs, Trilateralists, etc. The idea, we speculate, is that things will get better now and the banker-technocrats will take the credit. Thus is the myth established and perpetuated. Thus, the banking aristocracy is made to look good. But it's a put-on. More directed history.
The power elite controls central banks. It controls money. It controls economies, near as we can tell. The idea is to create chaos and then order. The idea is to generate a problem and then provide a solution. Both in Europe and America the problems are obvious. And the solution is to be governmental. Barack Obama is to provide the solution in the US. It begins with an economic upturn. Here's some more from the AP article excerpted above ...
But even the most optimistic forecasters are not predicting growth will rebound to levels that would make a significant dent in the unemployment rate, which has been stuck around 9% for the past two years. The October rebound in the leading index reflected positive contributions from building permits, the spread between short-term and long-term interest rates, a rising stock market and a slightly better employment reading.
Economists said the strong October gain in the leading index and other positive reports recently had at least eased fears that the economy would be in danger of slipping into a recession. Conference Board economist Ken Goldstein said that the latest leading indicators report was pointing "to continued growth this winter, possibly even gaining a little momentum by spring."
Nine percent unemployment? We think it's double that. Heck, we think its MORE than double that. No one really knows, but it is surely true that with some 45 million people on food stamps in the US, there's burgeoning distress. As far as the statistics themselves go, ShadowStats has this to say about the most recent batch of "announced" statistics:
• Housing Starts Continued Three-Year Pattern of Bottom-Bouncing
• Economic Recovery Never Happened; Hyped Gains Were Based on Gimmicked Inflation Adjustments
• Current Downturn Already Exceeds Duration of Great Depression's First Down-Leg
Yes, what's going on may be a kind of elaborate shadow-play. In Europe we expect sudden, miraculous turnarounds in Italy and Greece. In America, the turnaround is already underway, as we can see from announced "statistics."
The powers-that-be want to retain Barack Obama as president in our view. Or if he is not electable, perhaps Plan B is the election of libertarian candidate Ron Paul. The idea then would be to blame all the woes of the modern world on free-market strategies. This would also reinforce the meme that government (and government action) is a necessity.
Conclusion: It still seems to us that Obama was "placed" into the presidency for some reason we cannot quite make out. For some reason he was handed a Nobel Peace Prize. For some reason, the ambiguity of his "Muslim" persona continues to be played up. Perhaps we learn more if he wins a second term.

"Don't understand "personality"" - beg your pardon, of course, it's "Obama's personality", thanks.
Posted by Alishep on 11/20/11 04:23 PM
Don't understand "personality became a matter of interest... .."? Could you help me out? I am new to all of this!
Think about all the agenda 21 type executive orders, policies, actions by the Obama administration. The wWH Rural council being created by an executive order this year as well as the National Oceans Council in 2010. The Right to Protect through the UN which basically is deciding where our military should go. A group of non elected bureaucrats including Soros directing our military. Citing the r2p was how we went to war in Libya without congressional approval. And within the past month 100 troops were sent to Uganda under the r2p. They were deployed on a Wednesday and congress was notified 2 days later! Soros has oil interests there apparently. There is an attempt to cut the US off from our natural resources under the guise of enironmentalism, green energy and global warming, the global warming hoax originating, I believe with the UN. As soon as Obama took office. Salazar canceled 77 Oil andgas leases, 1 month after Obama was in office. And they continued with the illegal ban on drilling in the gulf after the spill, ignoring the judge who ruled against the moratorium. And in that debacle the administration changed what the scientists had said. The group did not think a moratorium was necessary. Fast and furious, an effort to remove the 2nd amendment, and the plan to push the global gun control initiative from the UN. The list goes on and on and I am frightened. I follow Ann Barnhardt and she is "went Galt". Do you think the MF Global disaster was orchestrated?

Yes, Alishep. With the fact being known as a fact at some remote areas also, and the personality became a matter of interest since some significantly later time than you are describing. And I doubt that it's totally unknown (-:

I agree with you that Obama was placed in the WH

I just came across this in the past week. I listened to Tom Fife being interviewed by a radio show.
I would never have believed that I would be a conspiracy theorist but I am now. 1992 was around the time that the UN started with Agenda 21 -and George Soros was starting up all his NGO's. I believe Obama was placed in the White House by Soros.

And 1001 Pennsylvania Avenue [ home of Clark, Lytle, Geduldig and Cranford] cannot be too far removed from the White House, on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, can it, which must be quite convenient in these spooky chaotic times.
Troubled times with spinning out of control tales of popular unrest and civil disobedience practically and virtually everywhere one cares to dare look. One would almost imagine that there is some sort of an intelligence coup going on, and given Uncle Sam's penchant for bigger and better and badder [ a Wild West/New World mangling of the classic Olympian, Citius, Altius, Fortius ] that would probably be a case of there being a number of competing coups being highly active and trying to be attractive.

Yes, kenn, crazy isn't it. And how smart does that make any who would consider themselves Power Elite whenever their invisible hand is such an obvious clumsy stump of a claw which destroys their anonymity and any chance of immunity from reaction and proaction and impunity of action.
Sitting targets would they and their puppets be whenever the going gets tough and the rough and rogues get going and you can't put that genie back in the bottle, for the opposition and competition are way smarter than has ever been imagined possible before, for they are completely different from anything normal and expected. In GI jargon, would irregular and unconventional not do it justice but would at least give a sense of the new world order fields of chaotic play.

[This means that the elites can simply create such a narrative and then elect whomever they wish to. db]
Exactly the situation.
Almost all seem to agree,,,then turn around and ask "who are you going to vote for?"

"How would Ron Paul respond to that? "
RP will not be "the decider", he has clearly stated the Constitution will be and will undoubtedly revoke ALL contrary executive orders (decrees of man).
He will get a lot of pushback from entrenched interests and, will need the people to use peaceful civil disobedience defending from ALL unconstitutional acts of organized force.
He will have to balance supporting the resurgence of productivity (equals freedom to be so, and property rights) with compassionate weaning of people from the entitlements which are destroying them, individually and collectively.

In my research, which is rather extensive, elections do not matter except as perception directors. They have been rigged from the times they have been elections.
Rigged? Exquisitely rigged, like a tall ship. And none of us are holding the ropes. We are below decks, shoveling coal or pulling oars.
Democracy, prelude to fascism. Over and over.

This begs many questions. The first that comes to my mind is: How would Ron Paul respond to that?
