    An Iraq war veteran claims she was fired by Trump University because she needed two days a month off in order to serve in the Army Reserve. Corrine Sommers, who worked for Trump University for five months, sued Trump University after she was dismissed in October 2007. She reached a confidential settlement in that case. But she later alleged that she was fired because of her military service in a November 2012 deposition she gave in a federal class action suit that accused the school of fraud. That deposition was unsealed this week. Sommers alleged that a supervisor at the...

      I heard a man speak on Tony Brown’s Journal in the 1980s, on the thesis that the Federal Reserve System is a tax-farming system, creating monies out of nothing, loaning them to the United States, charging interest that must be repaid with taxes. It sounds paranoiac, until you learn that the Federal Reserve Act was closely associated with the ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment to the US Constitution establishing the Federal Income Tax. Now that Texas is close to pushing us over the top of the number of states required to ask Congress to call a Constitutional convention, what might happen...

    Leonard Nimoythe famed actor synonymous with Star Treks iconic Mr. Spockdied on Feb. 27. He leaves behind two children, a storied career and one of the most recognizable characters in pop culture. Hes also a reminder of a different era in Americathe years after World War II when the military was more connected to the public, and when it wasnt so strange for an actor to be a soldier at the same time. In the early 50s, Nimoy was just another hungry actor with parents who worried hed never have a real job. So he did what a lot of...

    A new study suggests that 25 percent of troops in active duty, Guard and the Reserve use food banks to provide groceries and meals for themselves or their families. The study sponsored by Feeding America, the nation's largest food bank network, is conducted once every four years and was based on data collected in 2012. It found that four percent of surveyed households who used a food bank contained a currently serving military member. Based on those results, Feeding America officials estimated that 620,000 of their 46.5 million customers, or about 25 percent of the military population in 2012, used...
  • The Federal Reserve Exudes Growing Desperation

    12/13/2013 11:11:21 AM PST · by publius321 · 13 replies
    A Marketwatch column points out that the "Fed wants to exit QE but keep long-term rates low". This is as realistic as saying that "I want to get rich but I do not want to work". They cannot keep rates down without buying UNLESS the Treasury takes over, literally prints the money off their presses - then buys their bonds themselves at auction instead of the Federal Reserve buying. One of the things that keeps these scoundrels in the administration out of prison is that...

    For Immediate Release October 8, 2013 Federal Reserve Board Issues Redesigned $100 Note The Federal Reserve on Tuesday began supplying financial institutions with a redesigned $100 note that incorporates new security features to deter counterfeiters and help businesses and consumers tell whether a note is genuine. Distance, demand, and the policies of individual financial institutions will influence how quickly the redesigned notes reach businesses and consumers around the world. The new design incorporates security features that make it easier to authenticate, but harder to replicate, said Federal Reserve Board Governor Jerome H. Powell. As the new note transitions into daily...

    Campus of SMU | 10/7/13 | Richard Fisher
    I went to listen to Dallas Fed Reserve President Richard Fisher speak tonight on the Campus of SMU in Dallas sponsored by Texas Monthly. There are a few observations I wanted to make: 1. Fisher states that the Fed has two legislated missions: monetary policies to maintain price stability, and policy to attain maximum employment. Fisher says the latter is an impossible mission because the Fed can set the right conditions that would allow for full employment, but they cannot control the policy decisions that would allow for it. Three times he said this. His example: the Fed is pumping...

    The Federal Reserves holdings of publicly traded U.S. Treasury securitiesfederal government debtpushed above $2 trillion for the first time last week, hitting approximately $2,001,093,000,000 as of Aug. 14, according to the Feds latest weekly accounting. The Feds accounting for the previous week showed that it had owned approximately $1,993,375,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities as of Aug. 7. Back on Dec. 31, 2008, before the Fed began its strategy of Quantitative Easing," the Fed owned only $475.9 billion in U.S. Treasury securities. Since then, the Feds holdings of U.S. government debt have more than quadrupled

    WASHINGTON, April 27 (UPI) -- The U.S. House voted overwhelmingly to keep the Federal Helium Program, set up after World War I to guarantee U.S. dirigibles would have the gas they needed. The vote Friday was 394-1, The Washington Post reported. The helium program has been a target of small government advocates for decades. President Ronald Reagan wanted to eliminate it and President Bill Clinton put it on his reinventing government target list -- along with aid to beekeepers and wool producers. He succeeded in killing the latter two programs but they were revived a few years later, the Post...

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska The Interior Department's plan for managing a vast petroleum reserve on Alaska's North Slope calls for a roughly 50-50 split between conservation and oil development plus accommodation for a pipeline that could carry offshore Arctic Ocean oil to the trans-Alaska pipeline. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar on Wednesday announced that the plan will allow for development of nearly 12 million acres within the 23 million-acre National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska, an area roughly the size of Indiana. Salazar said in his announcement that the plan will guide the transition from leasing and exploration to responsible production and transport of the...

    The first top-to-bottom audit of the Federal Reserve uncovered eye-popping new details about how the U.S. provided a whopping $16 trillion in secret loans to bail out American and foreign banks and businesses during the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. An amendment by Sen. Bernie Sanders to the Wall Street reform law passed one year ago this week directed the Government Accountability Office to conduct the study. "As a result of this audit, we now know that the Federal Reserve provided more than $16 trillion in total financial assistance to some of the largest financial institutions and corporations...

As of November 28, 2011, media outlets announced that we could be as little as ten days away from a complete collapse of the Euro -- and with it, much of the rest of the world's economies could be pulled down as well.

    Bundesbank gold location kept secret Published: 8 Nov 11 12:00 CET As pressure grows for Germany to tap its gold reserves amid the European sovereign debt crisis, the Bundesbank is refusing to end its silence on where its more than 3,000 tonnes of the precious metal is stored. On Tuesday, the daily Financial Times Deutschland examined the speculation on where Germanys horde of gold is being kept. The country's estimated 3,401 tonnes is the second largest national reserves after that of the United States. Much of Germanys gold would appear to be still in America, where it was held during...

    The U.S. is coming to Europe's financial rescue. So far, America's role is fairly limited. But if the crisis continues to grow and the U.S. takes on a wider role, U.S. consumers and taxpayers could feel a bigger impact. The biggest exposure could come from America's status as the single largest source of money for the International Monetary Fund. The latest round of American financial assistance came Thursday with a promise by the Federal Reserve to swap as many dollars for euros as European bankers need. In the short run, those transactions won't have much impact because the central banks...
