Sad, on this day the anniversary of Pearl Harbor, the event that led to the Japanese Americans to be interned for no reason other than being Japanese, that this story is posted - "The revelation that Halliburton subsidiary KBR is seeking sub-contractors to staff and outfit “emergency environment” camps located in five regions of the United States follows preparations over the last three years to deal with riots inside the United States that have already spread throughout Europe, North Africa and the Middle East." Detention Camp Order Follows Preparations For Civil Unrest Alex Jones' Infowars.
Yes, I led with a police state post and for a darn good reason. To those of you that write off this as crap or impossible, I highly suggest you read that article. It is all there in black and white. From government documents to presidential directives, this is real and it is happening NOW. They are preparing for something large. Really large political unrest is what that appears to be, which would be caused by a collapse in the global financial system.
I have reported on the FEMA camps (over 72 empty federal prisons around the nation) in the past, and guess what, they are now actively seeking to staff these institutions. Following the Senate's passage of Section 1301 of the National Defense Authorization Act last week (they can lock you up without cause or reason), you have to start putting two and two together folks.
Heck this may be part of Obummer's new jobs program. I would suspect that this hiring may even dent the monthly report in January. It will be interesting to see if it shows up.
Briefly on Pearl Harbor, after visiting there this summer for the first time this day has even more meaning for me. Always thank a Vet for their service.They put their lives on the line for you to be free. Then ask that Vet what they think about America today and if they would have done that if they had known that their government would be selling the nation to the banks and forming a debt slave nation. I offer a hearty STB thank you to all the vets and current enlisted out there.
As for the markets, we are in wait and see mode if the EU can pull another miracle out of the hat. Rumors are all that is keeping the markets afloat now (as usual nothing has changed over the past 6 months). We'll know more by Friday. How screwed up are things? Wat shot the markets up this afternoon? A rumor. "Apparently the fact that before this rumor we had news that the IMF is short $120 billion in cash for already proposed credit facilities is completely irrelevant. Idiotic momentum algos rule!" Update - Denied.... And Here Is Today's Completely Idiotic Rumor | ZeroHedge.
As for governments pulling a fast one to make things look better - I know - Shanky cut it out - this crap can't be real - that's hogwash that you speak - governments changing the rules or accounting standards to make things look better - "Proving once again that when it comes to fudging numbers, Japan (which previously was best known for changing the minimum legal radiation absorption dose on a daily basis following the Fukushima disaster, anyone remember that?) is leaps and bounds ahead of even China and the US, the Nikkei reports that the Japanese government will change the method it uses to calculate GDP, and the result will be an "increase" in the country's economic output by JPY 5-10 trillion." When All Else Fails, Change The Math: Japan To Fudge GDP Calculation, Will Add Up To 2% To GDP | ZeroHedge. Hot damn, wish I could rework my books like that!
And as for the banks, why do you still have you funds in one? If you are a Wells Fargo client I highly suggest you look at this. Presenting How Wells Fargo Nickel And Dimes Clients To (Account) Death | ZeroHedge "The net result an overdraft balance that is 4 times higher than what it would have been if proper temporal sequence had been followed. And that is why banks are desperate to pickpocket their clients: because once news of such practices is made public, everyone should pull their money." I suggest you pay close attention to your statements. There is a great graphic in that post of how they manipulated when transactions were posted to benefit the bank over the client.
Are the infidels beginning to fire back? With the horrific economic conditions and all the corruption, one would logically think that it would not be too long till someone got pissed enough to do this - "A suspected parcel bomb addressed to Deutsche Bank Chief Executive Josef Ackermann was intercepted at a Deutsche office in Frankfurt on Wednesday, a senior U.S. law enforcement official said." Deutsche Bank CEO Target of Suspected Letter Bomb - CNBC

Obummer Bashing -
It is gonna suck when he goes on vacation for 17 days, but I's positive he'll still find some way of making the news. Is he already on vaca? I would not know, what's the difference? Hey, how bout a permanent vacation. Kudos to Romney for this one- "Fore More Tears" A play on the president's fondness of golf.
Donate $18 to send President Obama on a permanent vacation.
