2017 The Year in Review Part 1: Democrats And Blood In The Streets

I believe that in a very short time we will look back at 2017 and understand it to be the extremely pivotal year that, in ways that many may have not noticed, it really was.

One of the most tragic and destructive legacies of the Kenyans reign over America has been the institutionalization and normalization of lawlessness at nearly every level of society. From the Nation of Islam to The New Black Panthers, Black Lives Matter and even Antifa, liberals have actively and openly stoked the flames of racial hatred and division and, with the exception of the election of Trump, suffered not the slightest consequence of importance. Under the Kenyans tutelage even thoughts were deemed criminal if they did not comport to the supreme leaders ideology.

It has become blindingly obvious to anyone willing to look that the DOJ, FBI, CIA, IRS, INS and a host of other federal agencies have been turned against conservative Americans. One can only hope that Trump is able to restore a sense of law and order to a deeply weaponized American government.

Among many things that became clearly apparent in 2017 was the absolute bloody history of the democratic party. After some fifty years spent successfully hiding their Jim Crow legacy behind the bodies of its victims, the carnage wrought by the policies of the party of the “little guy” are becoming to massive to conceal any longer. Only the most mind numbed liberal can be satisfied that Kate Stienlie’s killer got off with time served, that the Massachusetts Supreme Court ruled that it is fine for black males to run from cops, that the “knock out” game was so very carefully ignored by everyone but it’s victims or that the Portland, Oregon Police Department has decided to stop identifying gang members and purge the gang member database it has developed over the last two decades to appear non racist. Similar symptoms of liberal idiocy, are appearing throughout America and are praised by liberals as good and decent things. Make no mistake, liberals will continue to deny the painfully obvious and the media will maintain its news blackout of the carnage even as the number of bodies and victims is beginning to reach a critical mass that even they can no longer conceal.

In 2016, the latest figures I was able to find, the FBI reported there were 1.2 million violent crimes committed in America. This represents a 4.1% increase over 2015. It is the second year in a row violent crimes have risen. To put some perspective on this the current crime level represents 386 violent crimes for every 1000 people.

The good news, if you can call it that, is that much of the continuing spike in violent crime comes from a relatively few and, almost exclusively democrat led and managed, cities. In order, here are the top ten offenders.

Detroit, Michigan: 2,047 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 303 murders.
St. Louis, Missouri: 1,913 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 188 murders.
Memphis, Tennessee: 1,820 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 196 murders.
Baltimore, Maryland: 1,780 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 318 murders.
Rockford, Illinois: 1,659 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 26 murders.
Kansas City, Missouri: 1,655 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 129 murders.
Cleveland, Ohio: 1,631 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 135 murders.
Milwaukee, Wisconsin: 1,533 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 141 murders.
Little Rock, Arkansas: 1,531 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 42 murders.
Oakland, California: 1,426 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 85 murders.

I bet you were surprised that Chicago wasn’t on the list. I wouldn’t take much comfort from that fact. In 2015, Chicago reported 478 homicides, leading all other American cities. In Chicago this year people are still getting shot in insanely high numbers. By the middle of October, 2017, 1,000 more people were shot than at the same time last year. Of the 3,500 shooting victims this year so far nearly 600 died. In Chicago the murder rate tends to be concentrated in a few areas. Two neighborhoods, Burnside and Fuller Park, have homicide rates of more than 100 per 100,000 residents. Similarly, 45 percent of shootings in St. Louis this year have been clustered in just eight neighborhoods. New Orleans reports a similar finding.

Consider these trends as an ancillary to the Ferguson Effect and another of the Kenyan’s legacies, the war on cops. In many large cities cops are now extremely hesitant, and not without good reason, to engage in proactive policing. Far to often they are harassed or assaulted by bystanders when exercising their duties. Police have even been openly targeted for assassination on multiple occasions. The criminals know that liberal city and/or county prosecutors, state administrations, a corrupt judiciary and politically correct press will spend more effort “understanding” and “commiserating” with them as “victims” of racism or white privilege, than prosecuting them for actual crimes committed.

There are few places where the Ferguson Effect is more pronounced than in New York City. The self avowed communist mayor there has abandoned the policies that made NYC once one of the safest large cities in America. The mayor, his administration, a complicit judiciary and media as well as the thugs, gangs and organized criminal enterprises operating in and around the city have either bought hook, line and sinker the lie that cops are gunning down black men at will, are all closet racists or have decided to use these false narratives to their advantage. The fact that the vast majority of murdered blacks are killed by blacks is not only well known but decisively and studiously ignored by liberal leaders and their media and judicial accomplices. Simply observing that undeniable fact causes one to be labeled a racist.

This evil strategy, blaming fictional institutional racism for every ill, real or perceived, experienced by black people has been an article of faith to liberals for the last couple of decades. The newly invented “white privilege” was created to disguise the highly developed sense of black (and to a slightly lesser degree, hispanic and moslem) self entitlement created and nurtured by liberals. Consider the following cities as prime examples of where liberal policies on not just crime but poverty have been running unchecked for a very long time.

Baltimore. Democrat mayors with 18,000 consecutive days in charge. Poverty rate: 23.6%.

Chicago. Democrat mayors with 30,000 consecutive days in charge, city council 90% democrat. Poverty rate 24.7%.

Detroit. Democrat mayors with 30,000 consecutive days in charge, city council 90% democrat. Poverty rate: 39.3%.

Philadelphia. Democrat mayors with 20,000 consecutive days in charge, city council 90% democrat. Poverty rate 31.4%.

St. Louis. Democrat mayors with 15,000 consecutive days in charge, city council 90% democrat. Poverty rate: 28.5%.

I can hear all you statisticians saying correlation does not always equal causation. After all, everyone who ate a carrot a hundred and fifty years ago died. True, but this is just a tiny sample from a much larger pool of dramatically similar evidence. Sometimes correlation does equal causation.

As if there are not enough criminals in America liberals insist on importing as many more as fast as they can. I understand that not every “refugee” or illegal alien is a “criminal” but honesty requires me to acknowledge that a high percentage of them are and often of the most heinous type. By definition anyone here illegally is already a criminal and I can come up with no sane reason to accept and reward (cash welfare, medical, housing, food stamps, child tax credit, drivers licenses, in state college tuition etc) people who have chosen to violate the law. One cannot help but note that, in the importation of islamic “refugees” the vast majority (up to 90% depending on which period you evaluate) are males age 17-45. If you are wondering why this could be important consider that I have just given you the demographic of every standing army on the planet.
As a first generation American I am certainly not against legal immigration. However, I am against importing by the millions people who adamantly and sometimes violently, refuse to assimilate. These are the “immigrants” or “refugees” whose main function seems to be converting the most successful, inventive, tolerant, prosperous and freest country in the history of mankind into the hell hole they “fled”.
Liberals accept the importing of hundreds of thousands of moslems without question. They do so knowing full well that moslems generally refuse to assimilate and they will attempt to force their religion on everyone by threat, intimidation, force and lawfare. As moslems, many will rape, kill and plunder because their religion allows it (in the koran I read these actions are demanded from a devout moslem as part of his religious duties to further the influence of islam) and the moslems know the liberals will cover for them.
It is a sad fact that for the last several years virtually every “major” media outlet has refused to list the ethnicity/immigration status of criminals unless they are white males. They have taken this strategy to the absurd extreme of labeling, for example, a Mexican illegal alien as white if he has or uses an anglo sounding name. This strategy has been used to effectively cover up what amounts to a rape epidemic by so called “immigrants” of, as far as I can tell, unparalleled proportions in American history. The main perpetrators seem to come from south of the border countries, African countries and islamic countries.
The average moslem “refugee” and average illegal alien share some common attributes highly valued by liberals. Both tend to have less than a high school education, virtually no marketable skills, little to no understanding of or ability or even desire to use the English language, commit a wide variety of crimes at a much higher rate that native born citizens and are heavily welfare dependent. They each demand special accommodations at every turn. Subtract the language component and you have the demographic of your average street thug. Hey, no worries. Liberals believe that once the America so many of us grew up in has been destroyed by these “immigrants” they can rebuild it correctly.
Until then as long as the illegal aliens/refugees vote democratic and work cheaply for the Chamber of Commerce no one in government will do anything substantive to solve the problem. Remember dear reader you and I, like Kate Stienle, are a sacrifice liberals are willing to make.

Clash Of Civilizations

Much has been made of Donald Trumps “plans” to halt moslem immigration into the United States. It is a solid idea whose time is long past. The death worshiping cult of islam now has one full standing army on our soil and the Kenyan is desperately trying to double that before he gets out of office. Parts of Michigan now have moslem no go zones where men and women are segregated even in public. (Hello ACLU, SPLC where are you now?) Terrorist recruiting stations, otherwise known as mosques, are proliferating thanks to hundreds of millions of Saudi dollars being pumped into the subversion of America. Knowing this, the Kenyan smiles.

So why is this a big deal? Isn’t islam the religion of peace? Consider this fact before you cling bitterly to the safe, comforting delusion the Kenyan offers you. Moslems have been killing themselves and non-moslems as fast as they can for the last 1,400 years. Some estimates place the death toll over that time at 270 million. Let that sink in for a minute, then tell me islam is a religion of peace.

What further cements the danger of islam to normal, civilized life is that the koran is immutable. It is the only book they read. Moslems believe it is the verbatim word of allah. This means that the koran is absolutely perfect. Because it is already perfect anyone who seeks to “reform” islam is by definition an apostate. The koran provides only one punishment for apostasy, death. Because of this the cult of islam is reform proof. Let that sink in as well.

Some say that the Kenyan is simply not aware of the damage he is causing. He and his minions they say are simply practicing deep held believes of diversity and compassion. I expect they are correct although they have misidentified just who the Kenyans compassion runs deeply for, ie not America. Those of us who are not blinded by the liberal gobbledygook of the hate America first multiculturalism set saw this from the beginning. The Kenyan did not sit in a “church” that preached hate for twenty years by accident. Hate is an integral part of his psychological makeup, but that is another article.

Hate is also an integral part of islam. In the beginning of the koran, and yes I have read the filthy novel in its entirety, mohammed is all love and peace. Those words were written before the pedophilia loving mass murder garnered much of a following. Once his status as as prophet was secured by a ravenous, murderous army he revealed his true colors. To clear up any confusion about why he was “kind and gentle” in the beginning and a butchering child rapist in the last part of the koran, he simply wrote that his last word on any matter was the correct position. To make a long story short, the last half of the koran entirely repudiates the first half. The only use for the first half of the koran now is purely as propaganda.

The Kenyan and his accomplices have given the purest form of islam, ISIS etc, vast swaths of land from which to safely operate as well as weapons, oilfields and millions of priceless historical relics/artifacts with which to raise funds. The priceless treasures ISIS cannot sell they blow up. ISIS, following the islamic model of some twenty arab states engages in slavery and torture. According to ISIS genocide of Jews and non-believers is a high priority.

So what are we doing to “combat” ISIS? Aside from denying local fighters the weapons needed to defeat ISIS and the occasional show strikes, not much. Remember, at its core we are in a battle of ideologies. ISIS fighters do not mind dying as it is their only path to paradise. What is important to know is that the Kenyan does absolutely nothing to combat the ideology of ISIS. In 2011 the Kenyan sent out a memo ordering the removal of terms like jihad or any kind of linking of terror to islam be excised completely from the training materials of all federal law enforcement, military intelligence and agencies like the CIA and FBI. The Kenyan said this was done out of concern for multiculturalism. Right, and I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you. This was done strictly to try and blind the public and hide the progress of his ideological brothers in arms.

Unsatisfied with the pace of Americas subversion the Kenyan accelerated a process started in the last Bush administration, that of eliminating those in government who understood the islamic threat and were actually dedicated to fighting it. Hundreds of Generals, Admirals, Navy Captains, Army and Air Force Colonels have been quietly booted out of the military to make way for more like minded minions. In the government proper anyone in open opposition to islam is removed while dozens of highly sensitive positions have been given to militant moslem brotherhood members. The amazing thing here is that none of this is a secret. It seems no one but the Kenyan, his vile minions and folks like me really cares.

It is also no secret that the vast majority moslems who have recently come to America refuse, sometimes violently, to assimilate. Assimilation is not their goal. They practice a stealth form of jihad. You need only to look at Dearborn, Michigan to see how it works. They create their own exclusive community then out breed everyone else. When you are allowed four wives who are all fed by welfare it isn’t as difficult as you might think. The infidels who will not leave right away are often harassed until they do leave. Once these invaders have created their no go zone they take over the local government. This allows them to further and more efficiently intimidate the remaining non believers. Once they are in control of local government they are safe to plan their terror acts knowing full well the Kenyans administration will do little to impede them.

So, the cult of islam is trying to militarily defeat us. It is trying to bury us in a wave of inbred murderous religious ideologues. The Kenyan, using the power of government he has and many powers he doesn’t have, forces the ISIS agenda on us at will. What can be done about it?

While Donald is not my guy, if he will actually stop importing terrorists into America, that would be a great start. I would go farther though. Much farther. Remember, this is a battle for civilization itself. If you are comfortable with unlimited brutality, rape, torture, raging unbridled hatred, animal sacrifice (halal meat), slavery, so called honor killings, murderous intolerance and pedophilia, just to name a few of islams ideal behaviors then you need do nothing, the Kenyan will cover for you.

I think any moslem who wants to remain in America and wants to proclaim the koran as the word of God needs to publicly and in writing sign a total refutation of the islamic principle of Tyqquia, the right and duty of the moslem to lie, cheat and steal from infidels in the advancement of islam. They then must publicly and in writing completely repudiate sharia law. Any who refuse these two commonsense measures should be deported instantly and their citizenship/naturalization/green cards etc permanently stripped from them. Any moslem found violating their commitment should suffer the aforementioned consequences. This should be a one strike and you’re out policy.

Furthermore, I would ban any immigration from any country that practices sharia law at any level, funds terrorism at any level, provides aid/comfort to terrorists at any level or harms Israel in any measurable way. I would work overtime to get as many other civilized countries in the world to follow our model as possible. Any country that did so would be rewarded by a thankful America.

I would also ban the blaring calls to prayer in public as well as any form of prayer that disrupts the public, ie filling a public street/sidewalk with asses in the air.

I would ban the cruelty to animals known as Halal meat.

In the public education system islam would be identified as the death worshiping cult that it is. The true and correct history of the worlds bloodiest religion would be taught without regard to “cultural sensitivity.” Having gone on a 1400 year murder spree this death cult deserves no sympathy.

Some will doubtlessly consider my ideas harsh. I admit they are and deservedly so. This is a war and unlike so many of the Kenyans supporters I don’t want to coexist with raping murderous suicide bombers. I prefer not to fight but when I have to fight, I fight to win. Whether you like it or not islam has declared open season on western civilization, that means you and your I-phone. They seek to drag you and me back the the place they have never left, the 6th century. I have no desire to go there or to force my grandchildren to live in such a hideous place or under such an evil “religion”. So I fight everywhere I can and with whatever I can. So should you.

And because I am so cruel no, you don’t get to cover your face with your burka on your drivers license photo. Get over it or get the hell out of my country.

The Coming Storm, Part Two, Consolidate

Every army needs “boots on the ground” to maintain its gains, consolidate its position and protect its rear and flanks. In a declared war identifying the enemy is accomplished by the wearing of uniforms, flying of flags and use of insignia. This allows each side, as General Patton said in the movie about him, to provide the enemy the maximum opportunity to die for his country. America, unnoticed by most casual observers, is at war with it self. The “uniforms” in this conflict are ideologies. The “bullets” in this war are words and ideas. The liberals main weapons are the public education system, the insanely corrupt media and a vast self serving and increasingly corrupt government. Conservatives rely on the now shaky concept of “the rule of law” and a constitution now considered outdated by liberals.
On one side of this conflict are generations of Americans who believe in the founding principles that made America the greatest country in the world. On the other side is an army consisting of a hodgepodge of militant groups whose only common belief is in the supremacy of government over us ordinary folks. Sadly, only one army, militant liberalism and its evil twin islam, is currently engaged in this war. Isolated outposts of resistance to them, ie true conservatives, continue to bravely defend what is left of the once great nation of America.

Gaining control of a poorly educated, self-centered population, while time consuming, need not be difficult. LBJ began the process in mass by getting as much of the black population as possible on welfare. The Clintons stepped up the process by implementing the Alinsky doctrine. The Kenyan and his vile minions have perfected the Alinsky doctrines implementation to the point where it’s now applied to any situation without thought even by those who deny its existence. The final assault began with the current administrations full blown pursuit of the Cloward-Piven doctrine.

The first and best defense against such tyranny is a well educated society. To understand just how large the failure of the public education system is one need only look at the simple-minded congresswomen from Texas, Sheila Jackson Lee. She actually asked NASA if they could send one of the Mars rovers over to where the astronauts planted the flag. That she has no idea no one on planet earth has ever been to Mars condemns both the public education system she is so proud of and her own intellectual laziness, of which as a card carrying liberal democrat, she seems blissfully unaware. When asked about her “inconsistency” she promptly played the race card. I haven’t even mentioned the geniuses who elected her. Do I really have to point out that every vote she takes is directed by the Kenyans white house minions? The fact is little Johnny can’t read but he knows all about global warming, how evil rich people are and Americas “evil” past.

The coming storm is all about control and who gets it and who is controlled. Control has been the very lifeblood of liberals from the beginning. It is the stuff their wet dreams are made of. By their very nature your average liberal is handicapped in two important ways. First, he never wants to account for results. That’s not “fair.” It is the intentions that matter. This explains the liberal need to constantly inject massive amounts of money into a public education system that cannot “teach” a future congress women that we have not yet sent men to Mars or that race has nothing to do with her ignorance on a subject. The second disability is perhaps even worse. It is the tendency to let the government handle all the “difficult” things. Nowhere is this more evident than in today’s democratic party. One size fits all, freedom crushing, controlled from Washington solutions, are the only options on the liberal table no matter what the “problem.” These predilections allow for these socially conscious liberals to be easily and often willingly manipulated.

The over educated liberal intelligentsia suffers from a third and somewhat complicating self-induced delusion. They honestly believe they know better than anyone what is best for everyone. This explains why they do not bat an eye when you tell them the Kenyans administration has added some 79,000 new tools of control, sorry, regulations, over its term in office. I can see the pointy headed, over educated, real life experience deficient liberal looking down his nose at me for merely mentioning that fact. The idea of questioning the value or worth of those regulations would simply never occur to him. How many of these rules are you in violation of at this very moment, he would doubtless ask?

A vast, mis-educated population focused more on their I-toys and TMZ than the heavy hand of government slowly but surely inserting itself into every aspect of their lives is the end result of a fifty-year campaign. This was a crusade against regular American values. Militants like Saul Alinsky (a favorite of both the Kenyan and the Clintons) knew that outright revolution would be nigh on impossible in a country that respected human and legal rights, enshrined freedom of expression, religion and the right to bear arms. They knew that no one would give up such greatness to be lorded over by petty, small-minded men. They had to change the rules so, starting in the universities and slowly working their way down to kindergarten, they did.

This is the process that allows the public education system to force the sickness of multiculturalism on Americas youngest minds. The very concept that every culture is equal to or at least no worse than our own is pure liberal drivel. Americans have nothing in common with a culture that kills women who were raped for having sex outside of marriage. We have nothing in common with a culture that prescribes a religious duty to murder anyone who will not convert to the state approved religion. No real American can understand the evil of strapping a bomb to the chest of a disabled child and sending that child onto a bus full of civilians and detonating the bomb. No human father could kill his daughter for talking with a boy not of his faith. When threatened, no American hides behind his children in hopes of avoiding danger. Only the demented liberal mind can conceive of these atrocities as “culture.”

It is this campaign that has allowed the Kenyan and even supposed conservatives like both Bush’s to begin weaponizing the federal government. This weaponization process is nearly complete. No honest review of the last six years can claim otherwise. The NSA now collects and stores virtually every phone call, text message, email and social media post generated. Everyone with a smart phone can now be tracked without their knowledge or consent by the same NSA. The IRS is allowed to target political groups that disagree with their beloved leader. Do you really believe there is no coordination between the NSA, IRS and the white house?

The Kenyan has nearly completed the process of weaponizing your local police force as well. Hundreds of local departments now use facial recognition, license plate readers and stop light cameras to track and potentially monitor every one they come into close proximity with. All this information is stored, most likely, forever. Again, no warrant or consent is needed to collect and use this information against you. Do you really believe the NSA is not accessing these “local” databases? Have you not heard of Fusion Centers? I haven’t even mentioned all the high-end military hardware local cops are getting. Combine these actions with two disturbing facts. First, an increasingly larger percentage of police officers are combat veterans. While this is not in and of itself a bad thing it does bring a certain set of skills to the table that can be abused. Second, the increasingly large number of liberal, politically active chiefs of police and their willingness to ignore the constitution. One cannot help but get the feeling that your local police force is slowly becoming the private army the Kenyan talked about before being elected.

The consolidation of evil in America is nearing completion. The quiet firing of some 140 plus Generals, Admirals, Colonels and other senior military officers loyal to the Constitution has the Kenyans hostile takeover of the military virtually complete. Many of these former officers will not speak publicly for fear of losing their pensions but have made it abundantly clear in private conversations that the reason for their dismissal was their refusal to give the order to fire on American civilians should the Kenyan deem it “necessary.” Don’t believe that? Remember, the Kenyan has said he has the authority to kill American citizens without due process.

The eminent take over of the internet by little Barrys minions is simply the latest confirmation of the Kenyans intention to lord over us all. No longer able to win in the arena of ideas he must now control the content of the internet. He is doubtlessly sick and tired of Fox News, The Blaze and other actual news organizations ruining his carefully crafted stupidity on a daily basis. The Kenyan is desperate to control the message and he doesn’t care how he does it. The muslim in Barry isn’t old enough to remember the days when three networks controlled what Americans could know but he recognizes the value in that strategy and has pursued it with vigor.

The liberal crusade against decent, honest and hardworking Americans has left no venue untouched. On the bench more and more judges at all levels are siding with the most perverted tenets of liberalism. Many judges now feel free to ignore both the constitution and the will of the people. Substituting their ideology or “approved” foreign legal doctrine for US law is now a favorite judicial pastime. This gives, to those to ill educated to understand, the impression of legality to the anti-American, often blatantly unconstitutional activities engaged in by those intent on subverting our constitution. These incompetent judges provide the transparently thin, final layer of cover for those intent on dominating those of us who remain unenlightened on the benefits of an all controlling, all caring big brother government.

The noose now around the neck of the greatest experiment in self-governance in the history of the world is quickly tightening. The Kenyan, having surrounded himself with radical, militant ideologues like himself has slowly but surely consolidated his position as supreme leader. Today, despite blindingly clear evidence to the contrary, millions of people still believe that the Kenyan has their best interests at heart. They are fundamentally unable to see the evil he represents. Even more Americans, afraid of being called racist or terrified of becoming victims of political correctness, sit silently by and say nothing. That last fact alone is a chilling example of just how successful the Kenyans efforts have been.
Truth, justice and the American way are being subverted by a willing cabal of would be tyrants and their sycophants. These wannabe lords of men rely on an army of useful idiots to assist them in the exercising of their God complex. Through their leader, the Kenyan little Barry, they have managed to put their grubby little claws on the levers of power in America. After stunning losses in the last three election cycles one wonders just how much longer the tyrant will risk his minions losing elections. I believe it is only a matter of time before they feel confident enough to drop the illusion of leaning forward and simply start eliminating their opposition.

Obama Begins Push for New National Retirement System

Ordinarily I write my own columns but after reading this I decided to simply share it. It is a recent story released by the National Seniors Council. If you are one of the millions of responsible Americans who have saved for retirement this should scare the daylights out of you. If you are one of little Barry’s voters who think taking other peoples money is okay, then this will make you very happy.

A recent hearing sponsored by the Treasury and Labor Departments marked the beginning of the Obama Administration’s effort to nationalize the nation’s pension system and to eliminate private retirement accounts including IRA’s and 401k plans, NSC is warning.

The hearing, held in the Labor Department’s main auditorium, was monitored by NSC staff and featured a line up of left-wing activists including one representative of the AFL-CIO who advocated for more government regulation over private retirement accounts and even the establishment of government-sponsored annuities that would take the place of 401k plans.

“This hearing was set up to explore why Americans are not saving as much for their retirement as they could,” explains National Seniors Council National Director Robert Crone, “However, it is clear that this is the first step towards a government takeover. It feels just like the beginning of the debate over health care and we all know how that ended up.”

A representative of the liberal Pension Rights Center, Rebecca Davis, testified that the government needs to get involved because 401k plans and IRAs are unfair to poor people. She demanded the Obama administration set up a “government-sponsored program administered by the PBGC (the governments’ Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation).” She proclaimed that even “private annuities are problematic.”

Such “reforms” would effectively end private retirement accounts in America, Crone warns. “These people want the government to require that ultimately all Americans buy these government annuities instead of saving or investing on their own. The Government could then take these trillions of dollars and redistribute it through this new national retirement system.”

Deputy Treasury Secretary J. Mark Iwry, who presided over the hearing, is a long-time critic of 401k plans because he believes they benefit the rich. He also appears to be one of the Administration’s point man on this issue.

“This whole issue is moving forward very quickly,” warns Crone. “Already there is a bill requiring all businesses to automatically enroll their employees in IRA plans in which part of every employee’s paycheck would be automatically deducted and deposited into this account. If this passes, the government will be just one step away from being able to confiscate all these retirement accounts.”

NSC has taken the lead in warning the nation about this new government onslaught and is plotting ways to stop it.

“This effort ultimately is designed to grab the retirement nest eggs of America’s senior citizens. This new government annuity scheme, even if it is at first optional, will turn into a giant effort to redistribute the wealth of America’s older citizens,” explains Crone. “This scheme mirrors what I expect the President will try to do with Social Security. He wants to turn that program into a welfare program, too.”

NSC will likely unveil a new grassroots campaign effort later this year or early in January to coincide with the seating of the new Congress.
