READ THIS URGENT UPDATE. Your Florida Senators are on the verge of ceding
their constitutional authority and giving Obama almost unlimited power to
tax. –Steve


Our sources on Capitol Hill have informed us the Senate is working on a
backroom deal to give President Obama nearly total control over federal
spending for the rest of this fiscal year.

This is their “solution” to their self-created sequestration

Your Florida Senators may be on the verge of ceding their constitutional
authority to Obama and giving him virtually unlimited power over taxing and

If this deal goes
through, our “Radical-in Chief” will have almost unlimited power
to raise taxes for the next seven months!

+ + GOP Senators Set
to Betray Constitution!

Under this dirty, backroom deal, Obama would essentially be given full
authority to raise taxes and set spending levels, because Congress would
need a two-thirds vote on a “resolution of disapproval” to stop
him (a near impossibility).

Top GOP Senate leaders have given their “tacit approval” to the
plan, according to a Politico report that says “Republicans are now
proposing that Congress surrender an important piece of its Constitutional
‘power of the purse’ for the last seven months of this fiscal year.”

Your  Florida Senators would cede their constitutional duty and give
Obama unconstitutional powers to RAISE YOUR TAXES with NO accountability.

+ +
Doorstep Of Totalitarianism

This proposed action by the Senate, with the support of Republicans,
borders on treason and brings America to the doorstep of totalitarianism.

This is a clear violation of the separation of powers — Congress is
constitutionally given the authority to tax and spend. The founders
separated these powers because they lived under the TYRANNY of a king who
had both legislative and executive powers.

Now, Florida Senators stand on the verge of effectively returning us to the
days of King George III. But this time, it will be “King Barack”
who can tax us to his liking.


Willian=m, I’m calling on every patriotic citizen to take action right now

I have
instructed my team to get these faxes delivered directly to your two
Florida Senators along with the key Senators who are considering caving to
the pressure from Obama and the Left.

If you prefer to send your own faxes, we’ve provided sample letters and all
the fax contact information on the link above.

This is the height of cowardice. Instead of standing up to the big spenders
on the Left, many GOP Senators are ready to roll over and give Obama almost
unlimited authority to raise our taxes.

Please …

Take action right now by sending your faxes. Let the
Senate know that their cowardly plan has been exposed and that you will NOT
tolerate this unconstitutional action.

Thanks for the stand you’re taking.

Steve Elliott

P.S. This dirty deal is expected to happen in the next few hours so your
immediate action is vitally important. Please … take a moment right now to schedule your faxes
for immediate delivery and oppose the Senate’s plan to give Obama the
unconstutional authority to raise our taxes

P.P.S. In addition to sending your faxes, PLEASE CALL your two Florida
Senators and let them know you are fully aware of this backroom deal to
cede taxing authority to Obama. Phone numbers:

Sen. Nelson : 202-224-5274 
Sen. Rubio : 202-224-3041

Obama using computer-generated Twitterbots to create appearance of social media support for gun control

The Rumor Mill News Reading
Obama using
computer-generated Twitterbots to create appearance of social media support
for gun control
Posted By: RumorMail [Send E-Mail]
Date: Thursday, 28-Feb-2013
All of those Twitter messages that appear to
represent millions of people who support President Obama’s gun control
agenda… Yeah, many of those are bot-driven. In other words, they’re fake.

That’s what a Republican congressman from
Texas is alleging, anyway. He says the president’s entire gun control
narrative is a fraud being perpetrated over one of the world’s busiest
social media sites.

Rep. Steve Stockton accused Obama Feb. 25 of
trying to make support for his gun control positions more muscular than it
really is by flooding Twitter with messages from bot-driven programs, The
Hill newspaper reported.

Obama, it seems, can’t get out of campaign

When your position is weak, spam it to life

The president’s “anti-gun campaign is a
fraud,” Stockman charged. “Obama’s supporters are panicking and
willing to do anything to create the appearance of popular support, even if
it means trying to defraud Congress.”

“I call upon the president to denounce
this phony spam campaign,” he added.

Needless to say, the president has yet to
“denounce” anything he has said in regards to pushing for more
gun control. And we don’t expect he will.

Stockman said that, in response to Obama’s
call for Americans to tweet their congressman in support of new gun control
measures he has proposed – such as banning higher-capacity magazines,
military look-alike rifles and universal background checks – he only
received 16 tweets, but they were all identical. He said a closer
examination revealed that only six of them were from real people.

“The other 10 are fake,
computer-generated spambots,” said Stockton’s office, in a press

As evidence, he said the 10 tweets used
default graphics and names and have not engaged in any interaction
whatsoever with other people, the congressional newspaper reported. In
fact, he said two of the tweets were sent at almost exactly the same time,
and both follow just one person: Brad Schneck, the president’s former
digital strategist.

The Texas lawmaker also said just one of the
six tweets from an actual person is a constituent of his in his home state.
Here is a rundown of the fraudulent tweets, per Stockman’s press release:

— They all use the default “egg”
— They have account names resembling names automatically suggested by
— They have engaged in no human interaction.
— They have tweeted almost nothing promotional, sponsored messages pushing
real estate websites and other liberal “grassroots”
— They follow mostly MSNBC anchors or media outlets, not actual people.

Stockman also notes that reporter Robert
Stacy McCain’s investigation of the fraudulent Obama campaign (available
at: www.theothermccain.com)
finds the majority of the Obama-supporting accounts were created in fewer
than 48 hours before contacting members of Congress.

Response to Casper per OPPT

Selected friends:
This came in from a woman
in another country who has done all the OPPT paperwork.  She is in touch
regularly with the principals at OPPT.  She has good arguments suggesting
that the writing of Casper (at least in this case) have too many false statements
and should not be accepted as true.  Her rebuttal follows – which makes
this “Best news of the decade” perhaps.
I have no problems with OPPT, there are many out there spreading
false stories about it, I think we would have heard if anyone has been arrested
and jailed,
Heather is not in Seattle, she is in Morrocco, she speaks with us
every day, is very open and explains all questions asked of her.
Who would want to use the Courtesy Notices in Court anyway, not
meant for that.
Then you have your Terms & Conditions.  We are not
talking back our Strawman, it’s not ours to take back, it has been vaporised,
no longer exists. Look what they said about the RV.  I have never read
such rubbish.
Too many holes in this article. Who wrote it, Casper?? Amazing – the
ones who want to run it down, even Winston Shrout which shocked me, they seem
to want to run their own agenda and when something better comes along, they
tramp it down.
Why don’t the naysayers supply  a duly verified rebuttal of
the DECLARATION OF FACTS UCC # 2012127914, point by point, with specificity and
particularity, by duly sworn declaration, with their full responsibility and
liability, under penalty of perjury under governing law, or any law so long as
it is identified, signed by their wet ink signature; as all other discussion is
opinion presented as fact.  
If they do submit a rebuttal and it fails, Heather has stated she
will register it and make them liable for it.

Take a look at these two links on OPPT


Heather can be contacted at any time, never have I heard her unwilling to speak and
she gets asked some pretty deep questions at times too, and there’s 3 trustees
not 1. 

The more who support this, the better this world will be, don’t we all want to
be free of the demonic corporations, but many will still want to live in their
slavery it seems.



Bob Woodward says he got email from WH saying, “you will regret doing this.”

I saw this posted elsewhere:

Video: Senior White House official emailed ‘you will regret doing this,’ Woodward says

(CNN) – Veteran journalist Bob Woodward of The Washington Post said Wednesday on CNN’s “The Situation Room” that a White House official told him “very clearly, you will regret doing this” after publishing a piece rebutting part of the Obama administration’s argument on the sequester.

The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward said on Wednesday that a “very senior” White House official threatened him over his continued public disagreements with the Obama administration.

Woodward has repeatedly accused the White House of “moving the goal posts” in the fight over the looming budget sequester. He has been challenged on the facts of his assertions many times, but has not strayed from them.

Speaking to Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday, Woodward described a tense series of exchanges he had with the White House.

“Well, they’re not happy at all, and some people kind of, you know, said, look, we don’t see eye to eye on this,” Woodward said. “They’ve said that this is factually wrong, and it was said to me in an e-mail by a top –“

“What was said?” Blitzer prodded. “It was said very clearly, you will regret doing this,” Woodward said.

“Who sent that e-mail to you?” Blitzer asked. “Well, I’m not going to say,” Woodward said.

“Was it a senior person at the White House?” Blitzer asked.

“A very senior person,” Woodward said. “It makes me very uncomfortable to have the White House telling reporters, you’re going to regret doing something that you believe in.”

The Death of Small Banks in the US

The Death of Small Banks in the US
By Chris Mayer
The US government is going to kill the
small banking industry in the US. The irony is hard to miss. It was not the
small banks that threatened the financial system in the crisis of 2008. Yet
they will bear the brunt of the regulatory costs imposed in its wake. The end
result will be that US banking assets will collect into the hands of even
larger banks.

It is a shame. Yet the death of the lamb is the life of the wolf, as an old
saying has it. In other words, it is not all bad for everybody, as I?ll
explain below.

First, let me begin with a piece of anecdotal evidence from the departing CEO
of Third Street Bancshares, based in Marietta, Ohio. His name is James Meagle
Jr., and he had been in banking for 40 years.

A CEO leaves some company somewhere every day. That, in itself, is not news.
But few CEOs depart by saying that the company he?s leaving might not
survive. Citing tremendous changes in regulatory costs and compliance issues,
Meagle said he ?didn?t have the patience anymore.? His old bank will have to
spend about $100,000 to meet new demands from regulators. For a little bank
with one branch, $100,000 is a lot of money. I bet it is a big chunk of the
money it makes in a year. Third Street is privately held, so we can?t know
for sure.

?I don?t know how we?re going to be able to make it,? Meagle tells SNL
Financial. ?We can [survive], but we?re just spending so much time and energy
complying with these new regulations.?

?Absolutely ludicrous,? is how he described the regulators? level of

What?s this bank to do? Merge.

?We?ve been able to hold our earnings up and we?re still well capitalized,?
Meagle continues ?but what I see coming in the future is not pretty. We
really do not want to sell, but we may have no other options.?

It?s a story I?ve heard often from banking industry executives, as well as
from professional investors in the banking sector. The small banks will have
to sell out to larger banks, which can spread out those costs over a larger
asset base.

Some more color to the backdrop may help you focus in here. Let us consider
the US banking system. What does it look like? Well, the top 20 banks hold
nearly 80% of the industry?s assets today. Take a look at the nearby chart.

Top Heavy US Banking System

The question naturally arises: How big do you have to be to earn an attractive
return as a banking franchise in the US of A?

It?s an unsettled question, even among industry insiders. What?s nearly
certain is that the 2,490 banks on the bottom are toast. Those are the Third
Street Bancshares of the world. Way too small to even make a go of it, like a
9-year-old trying to block linebacker Ray Lewis.

The next level up will probably have to sellout as well. These are the
4,000-plus banks with assets up to $1 billion. In fact, regulatory costs, as
well as banks? net profit margins (from low interest rates), put pressure on
the next block up to consolidate.

Now here is the opportunity ? and more irony.

What big
banks know could cost you…

The last time big banks knew something the general public didn?t, ordinary
people got burned. This time, not knowing what they know could leave you
out in the cold…

See what they expect to happen ? and when ? here.

For good banks, buyouts occur at premiums to book value. Yet many healthy
small banks trade below book value. In fact, in a recent issue of Mayer?s Special Situations,
I urged my subscribers to invest in three specific small banks. Each of them
trades below book value. Each of them has plenty of capital. And my bet is
that at least one of them ? and maybe all of them ? gets bought out at a
premium to book value in the next five years.

I expect we?ll see many of the smaller banks combining over the next several
years, like droplets of water forming with other droplets of water to make
bigger and bigger drops of waters. As investors, you gain by owning the
undervalued, small banks.

But you can also play the acquirers. Here, you want to own the healthy predators,
such as Republic
, which has picked up a couple of
failed banks in the last couple of years. It is a consolidator of banks and
will grow as a result of the acquisitions.

Investors benefit from consolidation because larger banks get a better

Some months ago, I spoke with John Palmer at PL Capital, an outstanding
investor in bank stocks. As John explained, ?The larger the bank, the better
they tend to trade off of book value.? Typically, a $3 billion bank will have
a higher trading multiple than a $1 billion bank. And a $1 billion bank will
have a higher trading multiple than a $500 million bank. So by moving up the
food chain, a bank can actually increase its trading value based on asset

?That?s why these companies are looking to buy other banks and get bigger,?
John said. ?If they can move from $1.5 billion to $3 billion and get some
cost savings out of it, they are going to get a higher trading value. If they
can go from $3 billion to $5 billion, they are going to get a higher trading
value again.?

The unfortunate part is that the industry consolidation underway will mean
the death of the small community bank. The consequence of all those new rules
and regulations is that the US banking system will become even more
top-heavy. Banks will get even bigger. Banking assets will concentrate in
fewer hands. And while I expect there will be lots of foot-dragging and
resistance from entrenched boards and management teams, I think the deals
will get done. There is too much money at stake.

The eventual death of small banks ought to mean good returns over the next
few years as these dynamics play out. For investors in bank stocks, the irony
is profitable.

Warning from Shell Oil Co. Do not Delete, Important Inf

Please read, this could save your life………………


today–Tomorrow might be too late”
Please send this
information to ALL your family & friends, especially those who have kids in
the car with them while pumping gas. If this were to happen, they may not be
able to get the children out in time.


Shell Oil Comments – A

Safety Alert!
Here are some reasons why we don’t allow cell phones in operating areas,
propylene oxide handling and storage area, propane, gas and diesel refueling

The Shell Oil Company recently issued a warning after three incidents in which
mobile phones (cell phones) ignited fumes during fueling operations

In the first case, the phone was placed on the car’s trunk lid
during fueling; it rang and the ensuing fire destroyed the car and the gasoline

In the second, an individual suffered severe burns to their face
when fumes ignited as they answered a call while refueling their car!

And in the third, an individual suffered burns to the thigh and
groin as fumes ignited when the phone, which was in their pocket, rang while
they were fueling their car.

You should know that: Mobile Phones can ignite fuel or fumes

Mobile phones that light up when switched on or when they ring release enough
energy to provide a spark for ignition

Mobile phones should not be used in filling stations, or when fueling lawn
mowers, boat, etc.

Mobile phones should not be used, or should be turned off, around other
materials that generate flammable or explosive fumes or dust, (I.e., solvents,
chemicals, gases, grain dust, etc…)

TO sum it up, here are the Four Rules for Safe Refueling:

1) Turn off engine
2) Don’t smoke

3) Don’t use your cell
phone – leave it inside the vehicle or turn it off
4) Don’t re-enter your vehicle during fueling

Bob Renkes of Petroleum Equipment Institute is working on a campaign to try and
make people aware of fires as a result of ‘static electricity’ at gas pumps.
His company has researched 150 cases of these fires.

His results were very surprising:

1) Out of 150 cases, almost all of them were women.

2) Almost all cases involved the person getting back in their vehicle while the
nozzle was still pumping gas. When finished, they went back to pull the nozzle
out and the fire started, as a result of static.

3) Most had on rubber-soled shoes.

4) Most men never get back in their vehicle until completely finished. This is
why they are seldom involved in these types of fires.

5) Don’t ever use cell phones when pumping gas

6) It is the vapors that come out of the gas that cause the fire, when
connected with static charges.

7) There were 29 fires where the vehicle was re-entered and the nozzle was
touched during refueling from a variety of makes and models. Some resulted in
extensive damage to the vehicle, to the station, and to the customer.

8) Seventeen fires occurred before, during or immediately after the gas cap was
removed and before fueling began.

Mr. Renkes stresses to NEVER get back into your vehicle while filling it with
If you absolutely HAVE to get in your vehicle while the gas is pumping, make
sure you get out, close the door TOUCHING THE METAL, before you ever pull the
nozzle out. This way the static from your body will be discharged before you
ever remove the nozzle.

As I mentioned earlier, The Petroleum Equipment Institute, along with several
other companies now, are really trying to make the public aware of this danger.

I ask you to please send this information to ALL your family and friends,
especially those who have kids in the car with them while pumping gas. If this
were to happen to them, they may not be able to get the children out in time.
