>A House panel on Tuesday approved legislation that would let a government watchdog audit the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy decisions, a move bitterly opposed by the central bank.

>The House Committee on oversight and government reform passed the measure by voice vote after roughly 30 minutes of debate.

>The bill was the brainchild of Ron Paul, the former House Republican and libertarian presidential candidate and sharp critic of the U.S. monetary policy. Versions of the bill have twice passed the House by wide margins but then stalled due to lack of support from Democrats in the Senate and the Obama administration.

That shit scares me. How likely is it that our economy is propped up with nonexistent dollars?

How long until it all comes crumbling down? Maybe I'm just high but it seems like our system is a bunch of vicious circles racing towards an implosion. For someone that knows more about economics and politics than me, is it possible to have massive devaluations of the dollar during our lifetime?

It's possible but unlikely.
>Oh, and is there any kind of asset that is immune to that?
Inflation is designed to incentivize transferring wealth from money to assets/pay off debt.
>Maybe real estate in useful areas?
Real estate is tied to growth.
While money is threatened by inflation, real estate is threatened by deflation.
If growth slows or credit becomes less available, then the value of real estate goes down.

"Michael Flynn's attorney says the former U.S. national security adviser is in discussions with the House and Senate intelligence committees on receiving immunity from "unfair prosecution" in exchange for questioning.

Robert Kelner says no "reasonable person" with legal counsel would answer questions without assurances."

So, do you think this is final bombshell? Flynn spilling it all to cover his own ass?

His guys are currently bombing Libya for the UAE.

>Prince’s ties to the United Arab Emirates are strong. He moved to Abu Dhabi in 2010, the same year he sold his stake in scandal-riven Blackwater. In Abu Dhabi, Prince founded Reflex Responses Company, also known as R2.

>In January 2011, several Arab countries hired Prince to help train a private army of 2,000 Somali recruits. And in May 2011, The New York Times reported that the UAE had signed a $529-million contract with Reflex Responses to recruit and train the so-called “Security Support Group,” an 800-member “foreign legion” for counterterrorism and internal security missions.

>Prince currently heads Frontier Resource Group, a logistics and transport company that’s working in Africa with funding from Asian investors. Prince’s sister Betsy DeVos is U.S. president-elect Donald Trump’s nominee to be secretary of education.

So I'm not really a fascist, just a stern bliever in meritocracy. You know, a meritocratic system would actually be more democratic since the people get to appoint everyone from librarians to crop overseer. When someone performs badly, they're replaced by a democratic vote with another candidate.

This way people don't just sail on in on a party ticket and then gets to arbitrarily appoint people.
It would eliminate a lot of corruption.

Janusz Ryszard Korwin-Mikke (Polish pronunciation: [ˈjanuʂ ˈkɔrvʲin ˈmʲikkɛ], often referred to by his initials JKM; born 27 October 1942) is a Polish politician, writer, and the founder of the right-wing libertarian and Eurosceptic political party Coalition for the Renewal of the Republic – Liberty and Hope (KORWiN). He has been a Member of the European Parliament since 2014. He was the leader of the Congress of the New Right (KNP),[1] which was formed in 2011 from Liberty and Lawfulness, which he led from its formation in 2009, and the Real Politics Union (UPR – Unia Polityki Realnej), which he led from 1990 to 1997 and 1999 to 2003. Currently he is the chairman of the KORWiN party (along with Przemysław Wipler, Polish MP, and Robert Iwaszkiewicz, MEP), which was formed by part of the Congress of the New Right.

>>390175 Sounds like an argument for austerity, cut social spending so to cut taxes of businesses and wealthy, thereby encouraging growth. Or so the argument goes.. I believe instead the businesses profit will increase, but their investments and wages payed to employees wont. Well, maybe the investments will a little, but most of the wealth will be hoarded. Why would people go to a place where its harder to live well?

The eating their shirt argument rings hollow for me too. Businesses don't collapse if they're reasonably taxed, if the economy is good enough, perhaps they expand. If the government used the tax to improve the well-being of the populace people would have more money to spend and be smarter and able to innovate/adapt. That'd have a great positive influence on the populace than the rich accumulating more wealth.

I bet Janusz doesn't even believe the arguments he's saying. His ulterior motive is more money to the rich, less to the poor.

Remember "Bridgegate?"

They've been handing out sentencing and two of Christie's staffers got their prison sentences yesterday while Chrisite was at the White House. So it was Trump doing some counter-programming for the Fat Man.

>Bridget Anne Kelly, 44, who was a top aide to Mr. Christie, was sentenced to 18 months in prison, while Bill Baroni, 45, who served as deputy executive director at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, was sentenced to two years in prison.


https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/29/nyregion/christie-bridgegate-baroni-bridget-anne-kelly.html?_r=0

With "plausible deniability" the Fat Man would be on his way to the clink for sure, instead now he's working for Kushner, a guy whose father he sent to jail for corruption.

http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/christie-bridge-scandal/bridgegate-scandal-ex-christie-allies-bill-baroni-bridget-kelly-get-n739941

Think of it this way, Christie was upset a Democrat on the other side of the Bridge, did not support his sorry ass the way I understand it. So they blocked lanes and initiated it by emailing,

[After the conversation with Christie, Bridget Kelly sent an email that read “time for some traffic problems” to David Wildstein, the self-described mastermind of the plot.

Kelly is accused of plotting with Wildstein and another former Christie ally to close lanes on the bridge, which connects Fort Lee and New York, as revenge against Fort Lee’s Democratic mayor, who wouldn’t endorse Christie’s re-election effort in 2013.]
----

This is was moreso and act of terrorism. Most Republicans think this way by default. Prison if fitting
considering what it was, not a 'fox news' so-called just a traffic study, wait until the facts come out.
We don't know. Let prison be acceptable for political revenge. Trump is all about that as well.

https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2017/03/this-chart-shows-which-democrats-arent-supporting.html
>After the defeat of Republican health care reform, Bernie Sanders of Vermont announced he was sending a single-payer bill to the floor. A majority of Americans support federally-funded health care. With the public behind it, the President apparently open to cooperation, and the Republican plans in disarray, now would seem to be the perfect time to rally for a public option, to give health care to all American citizens. The question, as always, is: Where are the Democrats?
>Enter the Justice Democrats, a political group founded by former leadership from the Sanders campaign, by Cenk Uygur (Young Turks), and Kyle Kulinski (Secular Talk). Their goal is to rebuild the Democratic Party from scratch and remove corporate-backed members of Congress. Currently, they have a second purpose: keeping track of all the Democrats who are (and aren’t) supporting single-payer. The chart below—their creation—shows every Congressperson who isn’t on board with the Sanders plan.
>“Medicare for all is backed by 81% of Democratic voters but only 38% of Democrats in the House of Representatives,” said Corbin Trent, the group’s communications director. “Our Democracy isn’t delivering what voters want. Brand New Congress and Justice Democrats are working to ensure that Congress represents then needs and the will of the American people. This will include replacing those that won’t budge in 2018.”
Democrats proving that even in the age of Trump the party still refuses to put the will of the people over their corporate donors.

>Does anyone think this approach will make any difference?
It won't be any worse than doing nothing. People appear to be more involved in looking at this stuff now, and realizing that there is a pretty big difference between one member of a party and another, so it's good to bring this to light. Whether or not this will make voters vote more progressively, we'll have to wait and see until next year.

>Can the party be changed from the inside, or will progressives be forced to abandon the party altogether?
Now is the time to do it. The pendulum is poised to swing back to the left with a lot of momentum. They don't get anything by abandoning the party. Look at what happened with the tea party and the Republicans. There are a lot of people in the party who want to run on & vote for a progressive platform. This will be a lot easier to change from the ground up, rather than top-down (which we saw this past primary).

In my experience, yes. They are predispositioned to assume that you are attacking them or the congressperson they represent and they are also severely overworked and underpaid. I know, if you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen, but it sucks that our congresspeople hide behind staffers.

What are the congress staff supposed to do, answer every call? They get (democrat representatives) psycho callers from the right just becaise a Republicans puts out some insane whatever the moment thought is. They get insane callers form every direction. It's call help centers where people aren't asking for help, but just putting forward stuff that sounds less-than-rational.

The there are others who sound and ask reasonable questions but may not quite be understood correctly.

It was a surprise more than it was irritating. It was almost refreshing. In my mind i was picturing that it'd be that cheap customer-service-style positivity, where they'd let me talk, and then read some statement back in a chipper tone that totally blew me off.

Instead she was talking over me and telling me why I was wrong. I kind of liked it, maybe I should get into bdsm.

Crushing the opposition seems to be more important than solving problems to Trump. It's part of his macho braggadocio, like how he claims he "got more training militarily than a lot of guys that go into the military." It's all hot air to inflate his balls, which are really blue right now because of all his defeats (which he always characterizes as victories -- even the failed Yemen raid.) This guy can't accept failure and therefore never learns from it. He'll doom us in the long run.

>"defeat the other party

Except he's trying to defeat a group within his own party.

Funny, we thought this whole time that the dysfunction in Washington was because of Republicans blocking Democrats and vice-versa.

Now Republicans run the whole show and the dysfunction is WORSE than before. They're legit trying to out crazy each other. I suppose those of us that like to see Trump fail will take it any way we can get it...but it's weird.

Freedom Caucus is definitely going to be against infrastructure so that's DOA.

Freedom Caucus is probably going to play games with the debt ceiling at the end of next month even with a Republican President.

Taxes, we'll have to see. For the most part Republicans stand for Tax Cuts for the rich at their core. They also believe Tax Cuts are self-stimulative (despite no historical proof) so won't try to offset it with spending cuts.

Trump & Bannon already threatened these guys on the ACA repeal and they told them to go fuck themselves. Trump is REALLY bad at this governing thing, the Freedom Caucus guys are probably laughing at him right now.

That was by design.
By attaching "Kill Obamacare" to every bill that would raise the debt ceiling, all the house members who caused it were able to go to their constituents and say "Hey, we're trying to make government work and do exactly what you guys want, these democrats just won't work with us".

So apparently most #FlatEarth people are Trump supporters and are NOT happy with Trump funding NASA. Lots of them deleted their tweets from getting relentlessly mocked, but they might be the best Trump Regretters there are.

Nasa shouldn't be fundded Because it's a hoax because space is fake.

Don't these people realize how much information is transmitted via satellite, and how much of their media would not exist if it weren't for satellites?

How do they explain that? Are satellites all an elaborate hoax? How do they explain line-of-sight transmission? It's a technology that's over 50 years old. Explain satellite phones.

You don't even have to go that far. All you have to do is have the travel to a different
vastly different time zone and call home in the morning. Their Mom can then tell them it's dark and nighttime where she is. Done.

Remember though that these people have a lot invested in this. So they probably explain it in some weird way. I know gravity is replaced with electro-magnetic fields or something like that.

I always wonder, if the world is flat what's on the bottom? This pic shows like jagged rocks...

https://cryptoinsider.com/venezuelan-developers-using-bitcoin-rare-pepes-fight-dismal-economy/

What started out as an internet meme is now turning into a way to survive in Venezuela’s disastrous economy.

While rare pepes are nothing more than fun and games for much of the developed world, they’re a matter of survival in Venezuela. “We’re based in Venezuela, and our business has been saved by bitcoin many times,” said the developer.

The developer claims roughly 80 percent of the offices around the area where Rare Pepe Party is being developed have shut down over the past year. The biggest businesses on their street have also dropped as much as 90 percent of their employees.

Late last year, someone began issuing rare pepe trading cards based on the popular internet meme of a green frog. The digital cards were issued on the Counterparty platform, which is built on top of Bitcoin, as a joke poking fun at another digital trading card game, Spells of Genesis. While the various trading cards seemed to start out as nothing more than a joke, some of them have now been traded for thousands of dollars worth of XCP on Counterparty’s decentralized exchange.

There are now a large number of people issuing their own rare pepes, with the digital trading cards going through a certification process controlled by the Rare Pepe Foundation. A subculture has grown out of this new phenomenon, with much of the community having been baseball card or comic book collectors in the past.

The basic idea behind the issuance of rare pepes on top of the Counterparty platform is that it enables scarcity in a digital world. Each rare pepe card is linked to a little bit of bitcoin through a practice known as coin coloring. Whoever owns the private keys associated with the address where the bitcoins that represent a specific rare pepe card is located is the one who owns that particular trading card.

Why military spending Goes Up. by Fanny Hunderkutch - Tue, 28 Mar 2017 17:51:15 EST ID:Tcte88KQ No.390077 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Military spending goes up the more times we have to commit atrocities or involve ourselves in risky missions and wars in which we do more harm than good.

Our military spending goes up then, because if we ever lose, we would all be tried as war criminals. Not terrorist. War criminals.


If we ended it all today, our military spending. We the entire world would jump on us. Sovereign nations in Europe and even our Allies would just watch OR have to come in and invade us so that terrorists or ourselves don't fucking fuck with the nukes and end the world.

But, even though we know we are doing the wrong thing, that is the number one reason to increase the budget of the military industrial complex. Because if we don't, the entire world will pay for our misdeeds as we reap what we sow and eventually all our nukes will either be removed by force or stolen and the entire world will explode.


We have fucked ourselves and everyone and the measure of how much we are fucking people is caused by how high our military budget is.

No, I was writing my post while you posted yours. I just finished reading your post, man.

In reply to it, I don't expect this to happen in my life time. However your point about our international laws and demanding UN and NATO to help us would mean a war in Europe to liberate Russia, China, and the United States of America. At that point they can raise their military budget will rise.
We would be home to a lot more bases, a lot more scrutiny of our nukes, and sanctions ourselves.

Europe would then by what America is today, but hopefully better. This is my opinion. No reason to get nasty that I don't respond to you immediately, dude.

I see, I just thought you saw my post and ignored it.

Well, a world order where Europe is in the ascendant is more or less inevitable during this century. I expect an EU-centric world order would be even shorter lived than the US one was, as by late this century I imagine all of the classic first-world powers will be far beneath their high-water marks and trying to cling for relevancy as the third-world enters the ascendant.

Increasing our relationship with Europe would be a good thing. I just think it's deadly to respond to a natural decline in power with a violent power grab, look what happened to Napoleonic France or pre-WWI Germany. We can pour sand on the fire instead of gasoline.
