Bloomberg Must Go!! Push Him Out!

Mayor Bloomberg continues to deliver the government New Yorkers appear to want. He continues to grab hold of the 99% by the throat and twirl them around before throwing them onto the garbage heap.

Bloomberg follows in the footsteps of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Richard M. Daley, George Wallace, and others. They don’t want to give up an control of their corporate power to the 99% who have representatives living in small tent communities, as the weather gets colder, willing to raise a bit of hell as they speak out loudly telling Americans that corporations ARE NOT people, that our Congress-people are being corrupted by the corporate elite’s money, power and influence, that the rich need to pay their fair share of the tax burden that has been pushed onto the 99% over the last 30 plus years, that corporations must pay their yearly fair share without the loopholes and breaks they are given, that money needs to be taken out of political campaigns, and that the unfair distribution of wealth needs to end!!!

We had 8 years of criminals running around in the White House. Bush and Cheney and Rice and Ashcroft, and the others lied the United States into war in order to destabilize the Middle East hoping to usher in the democratization of the region, as well as having an oil-friendly region for the U.S. to control. It did not work out that way. These officials are war criminals but they walk freely among us. They set up the game plan for those like Bloomberg, and the other mayors to become criminal-types, as well.

The region was destabilized--yes, but once Iraq became more stable, and Obama withdrew most of the soldiers, the region's nations began to find their own citizens wanting their tyrants gone. It very likely would have happened had we not invaded Iraq and Afghanistan. They did it on their own. They did not need the U.S. 's military destabilization game-plan, ie. neoliberal politics, to bring about their own Arab Spring Revolution. From Egypt, to Libya, to Syria, the people did it on their own. It might spread to Saudi Arabia, as well. Women there are fighting back and demanding more rights.

Now we have it happening right here in the United States, and especially in NYC. It also is alive and well throughout the country offering solidarity to the Occupy Wall Street movement. But now, we have Michael---Hosni Mubarek---Bloomberg wanting to "Stovepipe" false intelligence in order to shut down the movement, especially the encampments. Bloomberg is taking his script from the pages of Dick Cheney.

Bloomberg is part of the criminal elite syndicate operations. The little pipsqueak Scott Walker of Wisconsin is Jonesing so hard to be part of this criminal elite syndicate hierarchy. He says, “Please let me into your group. I will do as you say and kill unions here in Wisconsin. Just give me a chance.”

Bloomberg has headed the crime syndicate mayoral government operations with his tyrannical storm trooper actions, which is now being followed in Oakland, CA, and other places to shut down the protest encampments.

Naziesk Bloomberg is out to shut down the movement in NYC. Oh, he says just protest from 9-5, but don’t sit down anywhere or fill up the sidewalks because YOU will get arrested.

Heil Bloomberg!!!!!!!!!!!!



For the 12th richest man in the country, Bloomberg only cares about the rich and what they want him to do. The same goes for other mayors who bow down to the Italian shoe wearing elite in their own communities. Shit on the working folks who have been left out of the decades-long wage increases enjoyed by the corporate elite 1%.

The financial corporate elite, who were so corrupt and stupid have been earning piles of cash even though they destroyed the economy, and taken billions of dollars from the taxpayers in recapitalization relief, ie. CORPORATE WELFARE HANDOUTS.

These fails are who are running the country in spite of their total incompetence to maintain fair financial markets are one of the biggest wage and benefit and bonus earners in the country.

Nothing is changing, thus far.

Where is Barack Obama? He is out there bullshitting his talking points and reminding the Australians that “We are here to stay, and in addition, we will build more military bases in your country.” Forget about the bridges, roads, rails, schools, sewer and water treatment systems, and electric grid infrastructure decaying in the country. But YES, we will build more military bases in countries with strong economies of their own. NOW THAT MAKES SENSE, MR. PRESIDENT!!!!

This is why Obama is a failed president. Where are the progressive presidential choices, Mr. Grayson, Mr. Feingold, and Mr. Sanders? Where are these choices to stand up against the inept and incompetent corporate choices?

What Obama continues to ignore is the manipulation of the oil prices. Here is a  piece from Mr. Phil Davis writing for

 My premise is, if they are willing to pretend to want to buy oil for $100, then we should be more than happy to sell it to them. There were, in fact, 143,659 open contracts for December delivery to Cushing, OK, as of the NYMEX close yesterday. Those contracts terminate on Friday. Cushing can handle, at most, 40M barrels in a month so, at a minimum, 100,000 of those barrels have to be canceled or rolled over the next three sessions. Since the strategy by the oil crooks at the NYMEX has been to leave less than 20M barrels for delivery to Cushing each month (creating an artificial shortage of oil in the weekly inventories and robbing the American public of hundreds of billions of dollars while our elected officials do nothing - aside from accepting hundreds of millions in pay-offs from the oil industry to look the other way, of course), we can assume there is a need to dump 120M barrels of oil over the next few days.

This is a fantastic opportunity to observe the workings of an actual criminal conspiracy to defraud the American people in action. Those December contracts represent 143,659,000 barrels of oil that we have locked in for delivery. This would give us a MASSIVE surplus of oil into the holidays and would provide enough oil to withstand a complete disruption of all imports (even Canada and Mexico) for two full weeks any time next year - it's national energy security right there in front of us and you will see, over the next few days - how it is stolen from you in order to gouge you at the pump for another month. 
How much gouging? Rex Tillerson of XOM himself said that oil prices would be $60 to $70 a barrel without this speculative manipulation of our oil supply. He said that in May and I called for an investigation then but, of course, nothing happened and Americans have paid an average of $25 per barrel MORE than the head of the world's largest oil company says we should be paying for the 20M barrels a day we consume for a total RIP-OFF of $500 MILLION PER DAY or $15Bn per month or $180Bn per year.
But that's just the cost of a barrel of oil. At the pump, you pay $3.50 per gallon and in a 42 gallon drum that's $147 per barrel - almost DOUBLE where it should be. Then there's the pass-through costs you pay for heat and electricity and food and a host of other products that are derived from oil - all told, this NYMEX scam is costing the American people over $500Bn a year and, globally, we're talking about a $2.5 TRILLION crime (see my 2009 article: "Goldman's Global Oil Scam Passes the 50 Madoff Mark!").
THIS is what is crushing the global economy. We did not used to spend 10% of our $60Tn GDP on energy products. Under Clinton, oil was in the $20s - Bush's deregulation of the industry and destruction of the CTFC sent energy prices not just in California to stratospheric levels courtesy of Enron but globally prices rose from less than 3% of the global GDP to over 10%. That's over $4Tn that were taken away from other sectors to be spent on a commodity we literally burn. We don't get more production out of a $100 barrel of oil than we did out of a $25 barrel - our family car doesn't go farther on a $50 fill-up than it did when a fill-up was $15 - we simply have $35 less to spend at the Mall once we get there.

But NO ONE in the MSM or, of course, our government talks about this problem because they are filthy and corrupt and in the pockets of Goldman Sachs and the Energy Industry, which is slowly but surely taking over our world governments and ratcheting up the cost of necessities like food and fuel and medical care until there isn't any room left for discretionary spending - just a life of wage slavery for the average American as they try to just make enough money to keep up with the inflation in the very items the Federal Reserve pretends don't exist.
Even as I write this, oil (/CL) is hitting $100 in the futures (9 a.m.), spurred on by T. Boone Pickens' special guest spot on CNBC - even as the markets continue to turn sour on the fundamentals of a global slowdown caused by austerity measures and weak demand that is NOT going to turn around any time soon. Globally, we are consuming less oil now than we did in 2008, when oil bottomed out at $45 a barrel yet $100 is the bid this morning and I say TAKE IT! Offer to sell those barrels for $100 (a short position) on the assumption they can be bought at a later date for less money to fulfill your obligation.
My advice to President Obama, who has 720 million barrels of oil in the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, is to sell all 143M barrels worth of "demand" for $14.3Bn and then simply refuse to buy the contracts back. Then you will see those prices plunge to $95, $90, $85 and $80 a barrel very quickly as the absolute WORST thing that can happen to these energy traders is that they would be forced to actually put 143M barrels of oil on the market into historically weak December demand. Imagine a WEEKLY build of 35M barrels in our inventory reports for the month of December - what would that do to prices?
Yet the entire reason oil prices are at $100 now is because the CRIMINALS at the NYMEX, who wear badges to trade for Goldman and the Morgans and, of course the Koch Brothers - are FAKING demand for 143 million barrels of oil in December that, AS OF THIS FRIDAY, they will cancel. It's a scam and the scam is being played on YOU - even if you are in the top 1% - YOU are being robbed every single day - don't you think you should do something about it?
Send this post to your favorite crooked Congressperson and tell them we're on to them! Let them know that we are as mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore! Let them know they can no longer line their pockets with money that the Banksters and the U.S. Energy Cartel picked from yours!
I don't have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel's worth; banks are going bust; shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter; punks are running wild in the street, and there's nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there's no end to it.
We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat. And we sit watching our TVs while some local newscaster tells us that today we had 15 homicides and 63 violent crimes, as if that's the way it's supposed to be!
We all know things are bad - worse than bad - they're crazy.
It's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out any more. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we're living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, "Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials, and I won't say anything. Just leave us alone."
Well, I'm not going to leave you alone.
I want you to get mad!
I don't want you to protest. I don't want you to riot. I don't want you to write to your Congressman, because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street.
All I know is that first, you've got to get mad.
You've gotta say, "I'm a human being, goddammit! My life has value!"
So, I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window, open it, and stick your head out and yell,
"I'm as mad as hell,
and I'm not going to take this anymore!"
I have to agree with Mr. Davis, for the most part, yet he did not mention, which he does support, the terrific need for alternative energies being put out there NOW!

The corporate elite are continuing to steal from the working people of this country. And, Obama does nothing about it.

But, to end I must say that it is time to call for Bloomberg's resignation or recall. This egomaniac, who pushed the legislature to change the rules so he could serve an extra term, must go now.


Here is graph that shows clearly just why we have a failed economy and why there is an Occupy Wall Street Movement underway.

What we had were Republicans under Lil'Boy Bush spending the nation into a crisis, then leaving on a jet plane after the inauguration for Obama to clean up. I must say that I don't like what Obama has been doing, but one must admit he had been left to clean up a giant mess dumped on him by a Republican Congress still in office. 

This Republican Congress is responsible for the mess, along with culpable Democrats who went along with the economic terrorism.

Today we have a Republican leadership whining about how Obama has been a socialistic president spending the nation into a bigger crisis, all the while were silent when their BOY did even more damage. Why were they not calling for a Balanced Budget Amendment under Lil'Boy? All they are are hypocrites, liars and con-artists.

It is no wonder that we have people lining the streets angry and wanting real change that we can believe in. They are angry that Obama has continued to do more of the same and rewarded the 1% who took down the nation's economy and shifted jobs overseas, as well as stealing more and more of the nation's wealth for themselves leaving the working people with less and less of the wage pie.
