Unemployment rate 7.7 percent December 7, 2012, Labor force participation rate drops .2 percent to 63.6, Total employment unchanged in November,  8.2 million  involuntary part time workers

“With a 63.7% labor force participation, “conditions in the labor market are considerably worse than indicated” in July’s report”…economist Joshua Shapiro, WSJ August 3, 2012

“We tried our plan—and it worked. That’s the difference. That’s the choice in this election. That’s why I’m running for a second term.”…Barack Obama

“the Times of the nineteenth of December had published the official forecasts of the output of various classes of consumption goods in the fourth quarter of 1983, which was also the sixth quarter of the Ninth Three-Year Plan. Today’s issue contained a statement of the actual output, from which it appeared that the forecasts were in every instance grossly wrong. Winston’s job was to rectify the original figures by making them agree with the later ones.”…George Orwell, “1984″

From the US Labor Department December 7, 2012.

“Household Survey Data

The unemployment rate edged down to 7.7 percent in November. The number of unemployed
persons, at 12.0 million, changed little. (See table A-1.)

Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rates for adult men (7.2 percent), adult
women (7.0 percent), teenagers (23.5 percent), whites (6.8 percent), and Hispanics (10.0
percent) showed little or no change in November. The unemployment rate for blacks (13.2
percent) declined over the month. The jobless rate for Asians was 6.4 percent (not
seasonally adjusted), little changed from a year earlier. (See tables A-1, A-2, and A-3.)

The number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more) was little
changed at 4.8 million in November. These individuals accounted for 40.1 percent of
the unemployed. (See table A-12.)

The civilian labor force participation rate declined by 0.2 percentage point to 63.6 percent
in November, offsetting an increase of the same amount in October. Total employment was
about unchanged in November, following a combined increase of 1.3 million over the prior
2 months. The employment-population ratio, at 58.7 percent, changed little
in November. (See table A-1.)

The number of persons employed part time for economic reasons (sometimes referred to as
involuntary part-time workers), at 8.2 million in November, was little changed over the
month. These individuals were working part time because their hours had been cut back or
because they were unable to find a full-time job. (See table A-8.)

In November, 2.5 million persons were marginally attached to the labor force, essentially
unchanged from a year earlier. (These data are not seasonally adjusted.) These individuals
were not in the labor force, wanted and were available for work, and had looked for a job
sometime in the prior 12 months. They were not counted as unemployed because they had not
searched for work in the 4 weeks preceding the survey. (See table A-16.)

Among the marginally attached, there were 979,000 discouraged workers in November, little
changed from a year earlier. (These data are not seasonally adjusted.) Discouraged workers
are persons not currently looking for work because they believe no jobs are available for
them. The remaining 1.5 million persons marginally attached to the labor force in November
had not searched for work in the 4 weeks preceding the survey for reasons such as school
attendance or family responsibilities."

    Says leaders removed ‘people from their committees who believe in balancing the budget’
    Published: 11 hours ago (TalkingPointMemo) Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) criticized House Republican leadership on Thursday for “purging” conservatives from various committee posts earlier this week.

    “We had a couple of congressmen who stood up and said you know what the Paul Ryan budget doesn’t balance for 28 years, and so for voting against the Republican establishment they were purged,” Paul said on the Peter Schiff radio show.

    HERE IS SOMETHING WE CAN DO
    VERY IMPORTANT – TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE

    Exclusive: How We Can Stop Obama!!

    http://www.westernjournalism.com/exclusive-how-we-can-stop-obama/
    *****************
    There are 134 electors who are deemed “unfettered”, i.e., they have the option of casting their ballots for either Obama or Romney. They are from 13 states – popular vote – Romney.
    Each one of those 134 electors has “standing” and is entitled to be assured of eligibility.
    (quote)
    We the People need now to produce a flood of mail to alert each of these 134 Republican Electors that they have the “Standing” and the responsibility to demand that this question be resolved so that they can make an informed decision before they cast their ballots.
    These Electors need to immediately notify their respective Governor and Secretary of State that they require this information prior to December 17th or that they will not be able to properly discharge their Constitutional responsibility.

    Read the article to find out how to obtain names and addresses of these electors. You don’t have to live in one of the following to be able to communicate with its electors.

    The “unfettered” 13 states are:

    Arizona                       North Dakota
    Arkansas                    South Dakota
    Georgia                       Tennessee
    Indiana                       Texas
    Kansas                        Utah
    Louisiana                   West Virginia
    Missouri

    LET’S DO IT !!!

    Here is what readers are saying about Partialize or Perish:

    • Very thought-provoking essay. We may very well be at the “tipping point.” New thinking and planning are needed to rescue our nation.
    • Good stuff, Sam. Want to discuss on my radio show?
    • I am forwarding this to our Chief Editor for publication.
    • Kakistocracy, my word for the day (or year).
    • Wonderful, outstanding. But it’s way over the collective youth head and readable by only about half the current crop of American adults.
    • Brilliant. Keep up the good work.
    • Great Article!!
    • Excellent thesis Sam!
    • I was pleased to see no mention of a political party nor were the words liberal or conservative used. I am sick of that stuff. A really great read!

    Pardon me, JayJay, but what you did in 2008 cannot be the same. Things are different now – vastly different. I’m not advocating that it will work, but it is worth a try. Smart people – not insane – try every avenue possible that makes sense. This is not some hair-brained idea but came from a Tea Party leader.

    Furthermore, what makes you think that the “military” will come to the rescue? Have you been reading and/or hearing about the corruption at the Pentagon when it comes to W.H. influence? Any military that would be heroes cannot act in a unified manner without higher command, and from what we have been observing, that is being dangerously decimated.

  12. WB; those June 2011 emails were all b.s. revenge style tactic by Frawley against his now deceased cousin…Frawley teamed up with mutual relatives to seek revenge out of hatred and jealousy…He is a sick twisted person who deserves a lot more than what he got that is for sure…

  13. WB; IP2P is going down the wrong path on this one…Frawley used fake and forged emails/documents to extort money, this is what he does…He is a professional con man who has used these tactics for years…

  14. http://www.politico.com/story/2012/12/supreme-court-to-hear-gay-marriage-cases-84774.html

    Supreme Court to hear gay marriage cases

    I think these major moral decisions on behalf of America will determine just how soon and how major our judgement from Above will be.

  15. cabbyaz — I agree with you. The problem is, Romney won the popular vote but there was unmitigated voter fraud. Fox News has benched Karl Rove and Dick Morris for not going along with the fraud. Rove was W. Bush’s campaign manager and Morris (former Liberal turned Conservative) was B. Clinton’s. They are numbers guys and the numbers don’t compute.

    For instance, how did a Republican Congress get elected, yet Obama wins the popular vote? The House reflects the popular vote. Representatives run every two years. There are over 400 plus Represenatitve so it is much harder to skew the vote on such a large body. For one candidate, or for a few critical Senatorial races, it could be more easily done. (Or for one Congressional race like Allen West’s, to make an example of him.)

    So the problem is very deep. If the Media to include Fox News and most of Talk Radio are in the bag, then the Electors most likely to be chosen will be those who will play along as well, it would seem to me.

    So what do we do? We need to do everything within our power, to include writing to our Representatives and the Electors, etc. But personally, I think we are on the verge of civil war if things don’t get straightened out soon. We cannot have our votes stolen from us and our Constitution trampled on and still be a free country. There is no way around this but to accept the ugly truth: the man in the White House needs to be removed or forced to resign.

    The corruption has gone way too far. Why are people buying guns and ammunition like crazy? Why are there petitions for succession from the union? Generals and Admirals have been fired. Obama is pushing for economic collapse of this country. He wants to have a private inauguration with no press allowed (perhaps this time so he can swear in on the Koran????) The Middle East is in turmoil like never before and Iran is on the verge of having nukes. And where is freedom of the Press? The Media is an arm of government propaganda. They won’t cry too much when Obama has his private inauguration.

    Without God’s help, we are in a total jam. Maybe a God-inspired action will take place on Monday, December 10th? Or maybe I’m wasting my time looking for anwers in a coded Torah, but out of desperation that is where I’ve turned. If something happens on that day, as a Jew I’ll even be willing to take a second look at Jesus. There are some “finds” concerning him just as impressive. If the day goes by without anything causing a turn-around, then maybe I’ll be in line, too, to buy more ammunition. God bless & Shalom, I’ve got to go to work . . .

    One thing is for sure, Frawley was the front man in Companion Security and he was at the table overseas. He is a problem for those who do not want the truth to get out.

  19. What IP2P is saying about F.M. and Cline is all 100% false including the emails…the feds knew all about Companion before it was Companion, it was a ruse set up by the feds…Frawley was the perfect dupe, greedy, stupid, corrupt and willing to do anything for money…and I do mean anything…he would prostitute his own sisters for a buck…

  20. Whistleblower

    Bessie
    Are you saying F.M. and Cline are pillars of the community?

  21. and W.B., “They” have a very good reason for not wanting the truth to get out…

  22. I am saying all those emails about them were lies, the emails were works of fiction by Frawley…just like the “whistleblower” law suit, Frawley is a professional forger con man…and yes F.M./Cline are good men that did not deserve what IP2P wrote about them…

  23. W.B.; IP2P is getting one side of the story, the wrong side filled with half truths…

    http://www.sos.mo.gov/elections/2012general/2012General_RepPresElectors.pdf#search=%22Republican%20electors%22

    You won’t have the mailing addresses, however. For those in AZ I was able to locate most on the internet by just googling in their names. Here in AZ most of the electors are bigwigs in the GOP. I did call the AZ Sec. of State’s office to get the mailing addresses of several. My problem is now what to exactly say in my letters. I want to assure them that this in no way interferes with the vote itself. I’ve got to get them out of here post haste.

  28. WB.: I am not going to argue with you, I know what happened I was there.

  29. Whistleblower

    Bessie
    You were there for what?

  30. WB: lets just say I’m an expert on everything Frawley…and F.M has absolutley positively nothing to do with the whole Koschman/Vanecko/Cline thing…and yes Frawley did benefit from the emails posted on IP2P, more then you know.

  31. Whistleblower

    Bessie
    I did not read anything in IP2P that suggests F.M. had anything to do with the Kocshman case. However, it is a well documented fact that Cline played a large part in the Koschman case. Bessie if you have evidence that Frawley’s emails are completely fabricated and that Frawley benefitted, put it out for the public to see. I for one would love to see it.

  32. WB; I have nothing in writing, just my own personal experiences and conversations that I neglected to record and I don’t wish to share with the public…I have had a bad day, I have to say good-night…peace and truth to all…some day it will all come out…

  33. Mr. Wells and cabbyaz…THANK YOU and now I have some home work to do. When I get names and addresses I am going to present my self any way I can. In person, e-mail, regular mail. I plan on being loaded with information for their research so they can and will make the right decision. And you know I used to be democrat way back when Clinton was getting his ….by Monika. “I did not have sex with that woman” Well he made my final decision to leave the democratic party but Carter got it started. Time is of the essence.

    Shalom Dean M.

    Read your post @ 6:13 and I can feel the pain of your sentiments. I heard a story today about Dick Army, who apparently is resigning from Freedom Works because of some shady dealings by a staff member. (Sorry to say, much of the Tea Party has been corrupted).

    Anyway, when he was asked what he thought of the 2012 election, he said “It really sucks, but I guess I have eternity to get over it”.

    That said it all as far as I’m concerned. He, and so many of us have given up completely on any political solution. I don’t even have any faith in a third party. Hopefully, Jesus will come soon.

    Take care friend

  35. Pardon me, JayJay, but what you did in 2008 cannot be the same.

    Things are different now – vastly different.
    {No, they aren’t. He is still ineligible; they know it now, and they knew it then. This is about voter fraud; it happened in 2008, so nothing different there either}
    I’m not advocating that it will work, but it is worth a try. Smart people – not insane – try every avenue possible that makes sense. This is not some hair-brained idea but came from a Tea Party leader.
    {From a tea party leader??? Where was (s)he/they in 2008 when patriots tried to get this known to the public—I believe after we failed, the Tea Party is on record refusing to help in the eligibility issue–my God, the Supreme Court has been bought. Can you get any higher than that for corruption??}
    Furthermore, what makes you think that the “military” will come to the rescue?
    {I have no faith in military action–stop putting words in my mouth or misconstruing my message; until leadership changes hands, this nation is in critical care, near death}
    Have you been reading and/or hearing about the corruption at the Pentagon when it comes to W.H. influence? Any military that would be heroes cannot act in a unified manner without higher command, and from what we have been observing, that is being dangerously decimated.
    {So, there is that ONE point of whicn we will agree .}

    A double swearing-in was damned creepy the first time around. Now it’s going to be done twice AGAIN? For what — s**ts & giggles? I don’t think Dean M. is far off the mark at all when he posited it possibly being done with a Koran instead of a Bible.

  41. “CAN YOU GUESS WHO I GREW UP TO BE?”

    “The island of Nevis in the West Indies is where I was born. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a very happy childhood. My brother and I were abandoned by our father when I was eight and my mother died when I was eleven, leaving us homeless and penniless. Before she died, however, my mother had taught me the value of determination and perseverance.

    These traits, along with my education in commerce, law and politics, would serve me well after I came to America.

    WHO AM I?

    From homeless child, to sixteen-year-old immigrant, to one of America’s most influential founding fathers, Alexander Hamilton’s life is one of the most striking examples of the power of determination. He made immeasurable contributions to the nation’s fight for independence, the USA Constitution and the role of government.

    Ironically, it was his integrity and sense of honor that led to his death. He was shot by Aaron Burr in a duel after refusing to fire on Burr. He died on July 11, 1804. Alexander Hamilton can be found on the $10 bill.”

  42. CA Warrior……………
    ………..and when John Roberts swears in the illegal POTUS,he will have COMMITTED TREASON A SECOND TIME! How many times must he commit treason before COMPLACENT WELFARE AMERICA decides to PHYSICALLY CLEAN HOUSE? If you think times are bad now wait until a CRIMINAL shows up at your house every ten minutes and ROBS you at gun point. Will you say “HI GUY TAKE ANYTHING YOU WANT”,or will you have the golf balls to SHOOT THE BASTARD DEAD WHERE HE STANDS? I have a GUT FEELING that many will say “TAKE ANYTHING YOU WANT”, then they will WHINE LIKE A WHIPPED CUR and roll over.

  47. “Punishment For Crime: Make It A Public Event” “Exclusive: Ellis Washington Dialogues With Fellow Professor About Incarceration Policy”

    By Ellis Washington
    December 7, 2012

    ===> “Professor Ellis Washington: To professor Bycer’s question: Why, if everyone wants less people in prison, would a “democratic” society put so many people behind bars? I would answer: To keep criminals, sociopaths and psychopaths from wantonly preying upon law-abiding citizens and causing societal anarchy (as we presently have in America).

    Your non sequitur to the Citizens United case reveals your real issue: You hate the fact that conservatives have an equal voice with liberals in political speech, and you want to go back to the good ol’ days (1954-94) when congressional Republicans were the loyal minority content to play golf and sip cocktails with the Democrats, but shut out of the smoke-filled back rooms where real political power was wielded. To quote my Jewish friends regarding the Holocaust … Never Again!

    Professor Matt Bycer: [...]

    P.S.: Please, in any comment or debate with me, please refrain from mentioning the Nazis or the Holocaust. It is just bad form.

    ===> Professor Ellis Washington: Professor Bycer: Regarding your points – first, did it ever occur to you that America may be jailing more people than any other nation because society is devolving now into anarchy because a certain political party thrives in chaos? I believe the incarcerated would (if they could) vote for Obama at about 104 percent.

    ===> Secondly, I was born in the ghettos of Detroit. From kindergarten to grade 12, I daily walked to school avoiding utter human despair – con artists, pimps, prostitutes, pedophiles, drug addicts, drunks and gangs. Societal deconstruction is not theory to me; it’s very real, so when you use phrases like “wrong place at the wrong time” or “associating with poor-principled individuals,” that is the same liberal propaganda I heard at Harvard 24 years ago when I attended that school with Barack Obama.

    The difference is that I used my mind to filter out dangerous Marxist/socialist paradigms while he, Michelle Obama (and many, many others) uncritically accepted a socialist/progressive worldview and were rewarded by going on to lucrative and influential careers.

    ===> Also regarding point 2, we should take a page from the Middle Ages and make crime and punishment a more public event so that the young people can see the destructive path their criminal actions will lead to. To a very limited degree, the popular TV shows “Scared Straight” and “Beyond Scared Straight” seems to have taken this approach.

    [...]

    Finally, professor Bycer, I’ll try to remember your aversion to Nazi metaphors (why, may I ask?), but may I use a quote by the great Spanish philosopher George Santayana? ===> “The one who does not remember history is bound to live through it again.”

    ===> Oh, I’m sorry, but I just remembered that quote is inscribed in a memorial at the Auschwitz [Concentration Camp] Museum. I did it again (LoL).

    Professor Matt Bycer: Can you imagine a solution?”

  48. YES! Finally a judge with a set?? Give thanks for small favors. At least someone isn’t falling for the trap of Obama’s neverending false bait and switch promises. Too bad Roberts didn’t have the same courage to argue the law instead of “accommodating” Zero and creating an entirely new bill that wasn’t even legally a “tax”.

    Judge mocks Obama’s ‘accommodation’ proposal on contraception mandate

    http://washingtonexaminer.com/judge-mocks-obamas-accommodation-proposal-on-contraception-mandate/article/2515340?custom_click=rss#.UMIsYpWuUlE

    Judge Brian Cogan mocked the “accommodation” on religion liberty outlined by President Obama in regards to his health care law’s contraception mandate while ruling against a Justice Department motion to dismiss the Archdiocese of New York’s lawsuit against the regulation.

    “There is no, ‘Trust us, changes are coming’ clause in the Constitution,” Cogan wrote in his ruling against DOJ. “To the contrary, the Bill of Rights itself, and the First Amendment in particular, reflect a degree of skepticism towards governmental self-restraint and self-correction.”

    Cogan was referring to the fact that Obama’s promise to accommodate the concerns of religiously-affiliated institutions that would have provide free contraception.
    ………
    “The archdiocese argued in court papers that even though it is unclear what its legal obligations will be once the exemption is fully outlined, it expects to incur nearly $200 million each year in penalties if it is forced to comply with the coverage requirement,” Reuters also observes.

    The Catholic Association, which has long opposed the contraception mandate, hailed the ruling. “The judge in this case acknowledged both the non-existence of the so-called accommodation as well as the injury the mandate is already and will continue to inflict on these charitable institutions,” Senior Policy Advisor Maureen Ferguson said in a statement.

  49. ……….For those who have the money generating your own power is all well and good. Sadly after you have fueled even a 1KW generator for a week you will discover that you need to own a fuel depot,just to support a generator, which can be of either 4 pole or 2 pole design. The four pole operate at 1800 RPM, and the 2 pole operate at 3600 rpm. Of course without even any thought the 1800 RPM unit will be far more efficient. Simple math using the CONSTANT (REVOLUTIONS PER MINUTE). Which do you think will consume more fuel a 2 cylinder engine which makes 1800 revolutions, in one minute or a 2 cylinder engine which makes 3600 REVOLUTIONS in one minute. The engine fires 1800 times to produce 3600 revolutions. The first engine fires only 900 times to produce 1800 revolutions. Both engines inhale an air fuel mixture every other revolution, unless they are TWO STROKE ENGINES. Keep in mind that it requires approximately 2 HP to produce 1KW of electricity. So it is logical to assume that the SMALLER the engine the less fuel it would consume. But alas this is where mother nature sticks her head into the picture and starts applying her natural resistance. This makes power generation a subject having a number of controlling facets. The most important of which is the word EFFICIENCY. We know that NOTHING on earth is 100% efficient. If there was 100 % efficiency we would have PERPETUAL MOTION= (0 input= 100% output). In the INNEFICIENCY curve there is a variable called FUEL. The engines all require it to generate power. Of course you can circumvent the fuel thing by going GREEN. But once again you are faced with COST,which must be amortised.You probably would be far better of to simply sit in the dark, with an oil lamp. The oil lamp uses FAR less fuel than any engine. So it turns into a return to nature sort of thing. Get a woodburning furnace,and several oil lamps. If it is winter and really cold, you only need to devise a secure box to put all of your freezer contents into so that you can put it all outdoors so that mother nature can keep it cold for you.Of course I said a secure box because some areas have predator animals who can smell the contents of you freezer box for over a mile. A friend of mine who lives in Alberta,has told me that he rigged a block and tackle to hoist his frozen stuff up about 20′. Keeps the bears from raiding your icebox.

    Dear Mr. Sutter and Mr. Fossum,

    I am in receipt of a December 3, 2012 letter from Chief Clerk William Sutter drafted and signed by Eric Fossum in regards to denial of Plaintiff’s First Amendment right for Redress of Grievances, which was exhibited twice by the clerk’s office’s wrongful denial of Plaintiff’s right to file a petition for Writ of Certiorari in Case Taitz v Astrue USCA District of Columbia Circuit no 11-5304.

    In aforementioned letter from you Mr. Fossum provided incorrect information, specifically he stated that there was no order from the clerk’s office denying the “right by Petitioner to file a petition for a writ of certiorari” and that there was no attempt to file a writ of certiorari by the Plaintiff. Exhibit 1 December 3 letter from Clerk Sutter signed by Eric Fossum

    2. On December 6, 2012 around 10:45 am plaintiff Taitz called SCOTUS and demanded to talk to Chief Clerk Sutter in regards to her grievance of wrongful denial of her right for redress of grievances. Assistant for Chief Clerk Sutter stated that he is not available and advised Taitz to talk to a different case analyst, Mr. Traves. Mr. Traves reviewed the computer file of the case and stated that he can see on his internal docket documents filed on October 1, received on October 2, 2012, he can see and can read a letter from Chief Clerk Sutter, which incorrectly stated that Plaintiff is out of time to file a Petition for Writ of Certiorari (Plaintiff was actually over a month early as the final decision was on August 8 and she had 90 days until November 7, 2012), however analyst Traves could not see on the electronic docket a package received by the court on October 9, 2012 and signed by D. Gamble.

    It appears that there is nefarious activity in the court and someone threw the package away and either never docketed that package or deleted a docket entry made earlier.

    REGARDING MISSING FEDERAL EXPRESS PACKAGE DELIVERED TO THE SUPREME COURT ON 10.09.2012 9:52 AM AND SIGNED BY D. GAMBLE AND INCORRECT STATEMENTS/INCORRECT INFORMATION IN TWO LETTERS WRONGFULLY DENYING PLAINTIFF TAITZ HER FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT FOR REDRESS OF GRIEVANCES AND SPECIFICALLY HER RIGHT TO FILE A PETITION FOR A WRIT OF CERTIORARI.

    Dear Mr. Sutter and Mr. Fossum,

    I am in receipt of a December 3, 2012 letter from Chief Clerk William Sutter drafted and signed by Eric Fossum in regards to denial of Plaintiff’s First Amendment right for Redress of Grievances, which was exhibited twice by the clerk’s office’s wrongful denial of Plaintiff’s right to file a petition for Writ of Certiorari in Case Taitz v Astrue USCA District of Columbia Circuit no 11-5304.

    b. Exhibit 3 Federal Express receipt showing a second package sent to SCOTUS on October 7, 2012 and delivered to SCOTUS on October 9, 2012 9:52 am and signed by D. Gamble.

    2. On December 6, 2012 around 10:45 am plaintiff Taitz called SCOTUS and demanded to talk to Chief Clerk Sutter in regards to her grievance of wrongful denial of her right for redress of grievances. Assistant for Chief Clerk Sutter stated that he is not available and advised Taitz to talk to a different case analyst, Mr. Traves. Mr. Traves reviewed the computer file of the case and stated that he can see on his internal docket documents filed on October 1, received on October 2, 2012, he can see and can read a letter from Chief Clerk Sutter, which incorrectly stated that Plaintiff is out of time to file a Petition for Writ of Certiorari (Plaintiff was actually over a month early as the final decision was on August 8 and she had 90 days until November 7, 2012), however analyst Traves could not see on the electronic docket a package received by the court on October 9, 2012 and signed by D.

    It appears that there is nefarious activity in the court and someone threw the package away and either never docketed that package or deleted a docket entry made earlier.

    This is only one of a number of suspicious activities in the Supreme Court of the United States. Previously a case Lightfoot v Bowen 08A524 was deleted from the docket of the Supreme court on inauguration day January 21, 2008, austencibly to give an impression that there are no more challenges to Obama’s legitimacy. Only after pressure from the public, media, state representatives and sworn affidavits from attorneys the case was reentered. Clerk in charge for STAYs Danny Bickle repeatedly made incorrect or possibly statements claiming that all files were deleted due to some type of computer malfunction, which was not the case.

    In a different case Rhodes v MacDonald 10A56 (entered by the Supreme Court as Taitz v MacDonald) a docket entry showing Justice Clarence Thomas denying an application for STAY was made retroactively on a weekend when Justice Thomas was thousands of miles away giving a seminar in Utah. When Taitz demanded to see an actual signature by Justice Thomas on the order to deny stay or on the cover page of the application, she was referred to Eric Fossum, the same employee, who signed the denial letter in the case at hand, who admitted to her on the phone that there is no signature of Justice Thomas either on the order or on the cover page of the petition. As such, there is no proof justice Thomas ever saw the petition or ever read a word written in the petition.

    Current case deals with undeniable evidence showing Barack Obama using a stolen Connecticut Social Security number 042-68-4425, which was never assigned to him according to e-verify and SSNVS. Exhibits 4, 5, 6, showing Barack Obama using Social Security number 042-68-4425 on his 2009 tax returns and SSNVS and E-Verify reports showing that this number was never assigned to Barack Obama.

    Conveniently a package with documents relating to the case of the biggest fraud and forgery and treason in the U.S. history disappears from the Supreme Court of the United States.

    Plaintiff Taitz demands reconsideration of her 60 (a) motion to correct an error by the Clerk of the Court and a 60 day extension to file a Petition for a Writ of Certiorari, which was wrongfully denied earlier.

    If such extension is not received within three business days, Plaintiff will be filing not a 60 (a) motion, but a 60 (b) motion with the Court seeking a reconsideration not due to error but due to fraud.

  64. Obamacare: Are You Ready to Have Your MicroChip Implanted in Your Body?

  65. Kitty Werthmann is 85 years oldThis is a SCARY piece of HISTORY.

    Read & perhaps learn something new from HISTORY and “CHANGE”.

    America truly is the Greatest Country in the World. By: Kitty Werthmann

    What I am about to tell you is something you’ve probably never heard or will ever read in history books.

    I believe that I am an eyewitness to history. I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history. We elected him by a landslide – 98% of the vote.. I’ve never read that in any American publications. Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force. In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression. Nearly one-third of our workforce was unemployed. We had 25% inflation and 25% bank loan interest rates. Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily. Young people were going from house to house begging for food. Not that they didn’t want to work; there simply weren’t any jobs. My mother was a Christian woman and believed in helping people in need. Every day we cooked a big kettle of soup and baked bread to feed those poor, hungry people -about 30 daily. The Communist Party and the National Socialist Party were fighting each other.. Blocks and blocks of cities like Vienna , Linz , and Graz were destroyed. The people became desperate and petitioned the government to let them decide what kind of government they wanted. We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany , where Hitler had been in power since 1933. We had been told that they didn’t have unemployment or crime, and they had a high standard of living. Nothing was ever said about persecution of any group — Jewish or otherwise. We were led to believe that everyone was happy. We wanted the same way of life in Austria .. We were promised that a vote for Hitler would mean the end of unemployment and help for the family. Hitler also said that businesses would be assisted, and farmers would get their farms back. Ninety-eight percent of the population voted to annex Austria to Germany and have Hitler for our ruler. We were overjoyed, and for three days we danced in the streets and had candlelight parades. The new government opened up big field kitchens and everyone was fed. After the election, German officials were appointed, and like a miracle, we suddenly had law and order. Three or four weeks later, everyone was employed. The government made sure that a lot of work was created through the Public Work Service.

    Hitler decided we should have equal rights for women. Before this, it was a custom that married Austrian women did not work outside the home. An able-bodied husband would be looked down on if he couldn’t support his family. Many women in the teaching profession were elated that they could retain the jobs they previously had been required to give up for marriage. Hitler Targets Education -Eliminates Religious Instruction for Children:

    Our education was nationalized. I attended a very good public school. The population was predominantly Catholic, so we had religion in our schools. The day we elected Hitler (March 13, 1938), I walked into my schoolroom to find the crucifix replaced by Hitler’s picture hanging next to a Nazi flag. Our teacher, a very devout woman, stood up and told the class we wouldn’t pray or have religion anymore. Instead, we sang “Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber Alles,” and had physical education. Sunday became National Youth Day with compulsory attendance. Parents were not pleased about the sudden change in curriculum. They were told that if they did not send us, they would receive a stiff letter of warning the first time. The second time they would be fined the equivalent of $300, and the third time they would be subject to jail. The first two hours consisted of political indoctrination. The rest of the day we had sports. As time went along, we loved it. Oh, we had so much fun and got our sports equipment free. We would go home and gleefully tell our parents about the wonderful time we had. My mother was very unhappy. When the next term started, she took me out of public school and put me in a convent. I told her she couldn’t do that and she told me that someday when I grew up, I would be grateful. There was a very good curriculum, but hardly any fun – no sports, and no political indoctrination. I hated it at first but felt I could tolerate it. Every once in a while, on holidays, I went home. I would go back to my old friends and ask what was going on and what they were doing. Their loose lifestyle was very alarming to me. They lived without religion. By that time unwed mothers were glorified for having a baby for Hitler. It seemed strange to me that our society changed so suddenly. As time went along, I realized what a great deed my mother did so that I wasn’t exposed to that kind of humanistic philosophy. Equal Rights Hits Home:

    In 1939, the war started and a food bank was established. All food was rationed and could only be purchased using food stamps. At the same time, a full-employment law was passed which meant if you didn’t work, you didn’t get a ration card, and if you didn’t have a card, you starved to death. Women who stayed home to raise their families didn’t have any marketable skills and often had to take jobs more suited for men. Soon after this, the draft was implemented. It was compulsory for young people, male and female, to give one year to the labor corps. During the day, the girls worked on the farms, and at night they returned to their barracks for military training just like the boys. They were trained to be anti-aircraft gunners and participated in the signal corps. After the labor corps, they were not discharged but were used in the front lines. When I go back to Austria to visit my family and friends, most of these women are emotional cripples because they just were not equipped to handle the horrors of combat. Three months before I turned 18, I was severely injured in an air raid attack. I nearly had a leg amputated, so I was spared having to go into the labor corps and into military service. Hitler Restructured the Family Through Daycare:

    When the mothers had to go out into the work force, the government immediately established child care centers. You could take your children ages 4 weeks to school age and leave them there around-the-clock, 7 days a week, under the total care of the government. The state raised a whole generation of children.. There were no motherly women to take care of the children, just people highly trained in child psychology. By this time, no one talked about equal rights. We knew we had been had. Health Care and Small Business Suffer Under Government Controls:

    Before Hitler, we had very good medical care. Many American doctors trained at the University of Vienna . After Hitler, health care was socialized, free for everyone. Doctors were salaried by the government. The problem was, since it was free, the people were going to the doctors for everything. When the good doctor arrived at his office at 8 a.m., 40 people were already waiting and, at the same time, the hospitals were full. If you needed elective surgery, you had to wait a year or two for your turn. There was no money for research as it was poured into socialized medicine. Research at the medical schools literally stopped, so the best doctors left Austria and emigrated to other countries.

    As for healthcare, our tax rates went up to 80% of our income. Newlyweds immediately received a $1,000 loan from the government to establish a household. We had big programs for families. All day care and education were free. High schools were taken over by the government and college tuition was subsidized. Everyone was entitled to free handouts, such as food stamps, clothing, and housing. We had another agency designed to monitor business. My brother-in-law owned a restaurant that had square tables. Government officials told him he had to replace them with round tables because people might bump themselves on the corners. Then they said he had to have additional bathroom facilities. It was just a small dairy business with a snack bar. He couldn’t meet all the demands. Soon, he went out of business. If the government owned the large businesses and not many small ones existed, it could be in control. We had consumer protection. We were told how to shop and what to buy. Free enterprise was essentially abolished. We had a planning agency specially designed for farmers. The agents would go to the farms, count the live-stock, then tell the farmers what to produce, and how to produce it. “Mercy Killing” Redefined:

    In 1944, I was a student teacher in a small village in the Alps . The villagers were surrounded by mountain passes which, in the winter, were closed off with snow, causing people to be isolated. So people intermarried and offspring were sometimes retarded. When I arrived, I was told there were 15 mentally retarded adults, but they were all useful and did good manual work. I knew one, named Vincent, very well. He was a janitor of the school. One day I looked out the window and saw Vincent and others getting into a van. I asked my superior where they were going. She said to an institution where the State Health Department would teach them a trade, and to read and write. The families were required to sign papers with a little clause that they could not visit for 6 months. They were told visits would interfere with the program and might cause homesickness. As time passed, letters started to dribble back saying these people died a natural, merciful death. The villagers were not fooled. We suspected what was happening. Those people left in excellent physical health and all died within 6 months. We called this euthanasia. The Final Steps -Gun Laws: Next came gun registration.. People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long after-wards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily. No more freedom of speech. Anyone who said something against the government was taken away. We knew many people who were arrested, not only Jews, but also priests and ministers who spoke up. Totalitarianism didn’t come quickly, it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943, to realize full dictatorship in Austria . Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would have fought to the last breath. Instead, we had creeping gradualism Now, our only weapons were broom handles. The whole idea sounds almost unbelievable that the state, little by little eroded our freedom. After World War II, Russian troops occupied Austria . Women were raped, preteen to elderly. The press never wrote about this either. When the Soviets left in 1955, they took everything that they could, dismantling whole factories in the process. They sawed down whole orchards of fruit, and what they couldn’t destroy, they burned. We called it The Burned Earth. Most of the population barricaded themselves in their houses. Women hid in their cellars for 6 weeks as the troops mobilized. Those who couldn’t, paid the price. There is a monument in Vienna today, dedicated to those women who were massacred by the Russians. This is an eye witness account. “It’s true..those of us who sailed past the Statue of Liberty came to a country of unbelievable freedom and opportunity. America Truly is the Greatest Country in the World. Don’t Let Freedom Slip Away “After America , There is No Place to Go” Please forward this message to other voters who may not have it. After America , There is No Place to Go” The author of this article lives in South Dakota and is very active in attempting to maintain our freedom. I encourage everybody to read this article and pass it along. I see so many parallels in this country–are we going to sit by and watch it happen? Spread the word; also contact your congressional reps; vote them out if they don’t do what they should. If you don’t want to be bothered, then you’re part of the problem! Google Kitty Werthmann and you will see articles and videos.

  66. Bob Strauss, Thank you for posting Kitty W.’s memories. Her eyewitness account and honest appraisal of the situation are far too relevant to our situation now. May God show us mercy.

  67. hrmfc,
    Totally agree about the article posted by Bob Strauss. It is chilling reading, and yet I deeply fear this is where we are headed. Under God’s direction we need serious leadership to mobilize us patriots in some sort of effective action while there is still time. Yes, God have mercy on us!
