How The U.S. Could Pull Out Of The United Nations - American Sovereignty Restoration Act
Josh Sigurdson and John Sneisen break down the recent House Resolution 193 also known as 'The American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017' sponsored by Alabama Congressman Mike Rogers. While this act was put forward from 1997-2011 by Dr. Ron Paul, the introduction of this bill to every new congress in 20 years says a lot about the globalist opposition from both sides in the congress. Josh and John read out the provisions of the bill and explain what each section means. This means breaking free from the globalist order which has had their tentacles in every facet of life for 70 years. This means breaking free from the IMF which has their special drawing rights ready to go in their push for a world currency, a branch which has enslaved countries throughout the world in debt. There's the World Health Organization which monopolizes big pharma world wide and regulates all competition and innovation out of the market. There's Agenda 21 and 2030 which sets out to depopulate the Earth and further tax individuals into oblivion on the air they breath under the faulty guise of environmentalism. There are international tax laws, internet governing laws, peacekeeping efforts that lead to death and destruction under the Hegelian Dialect which perpetuates war and puppet dictatorships. International gun laws have become more and more of a problem and all of this just scratches the surface. See the full video to understand the impact this will have if the United States pulls out of the United Nations. This new world order shall not continue to enslave individuals on a collective level throughout the planet. For far too long countries have been governed by outside, un-elected powers puppetted by the major banks. The more they've weakened us and brought us to our knees, the more control they can wield over us. They are a global government reminiscent of the Soviet Union, and they wave a flag of peace, but their sheep clothing is tearing and people are waking up to their madness.

Globalization at the Crossroads - Full Video
Globalization at the Crossroads features renowned Peruvian economist and author, Hernando de Soto. His twenty years of research show that economies prosper only in places where widespread personal property ownership exists—coupled with inclusive, efficient, and transparent business and property law. This program demonstrates how the West successfully revolutionized its legal systems, property laws, and developed the modern corporation. Other nations that have instituted private property and business reforms, such as post-WWII Japan and present-day China, have seen their economies take off and their middle classes grow. Globalization is the new civilization. But unless we include the 80% of humanity currently excluded from the system, they will bring civilization down, as they have brought down other civilizations in the past.

Cravaack Advocates for 20% Small Business Tax Cut to Benefit Middle Class Americans
Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of this rule and the underlying bill, H.R. 9, the Small Business Tax Cuts Act. Small businesses are drowning in red tape, and the National Federation of Independent Business has determined that tax compliance is one of their biggest costs. Small businesses now spend between 1.7 billion and 1.8 billion hours on tax compliance, with a total estimated cost of between $15 billion and $16 billion annually. This wasted time and effort would be better invested in creating jobs and manufacturing products instead of handing over hard earned compensation to the government. I support efforts to reform our tax code and make it simpler to reduce those compliance costs, and I also support reducing the tax burden on American job creators. That's why I'm glad to be a cosponsor of H.R. 9, legislation that would reduce the burden faced by small businesses. Since 99.9 percent of all U.S. businesses employ less than 500 people, small businesses are vital to the American economy. In the Eighth District, eight out of ten jobs are due to small businesses. When I return home, I repeatedly listen to the same concerns from small businesspeople in the Eighth District. My constituents are hesitant to expand their businesses as a result of deficient access to capital, complex legal burdens, and tax-code uncertainty. The Small Business Tax Cuts Act immediately creates access to capital by allowing productive employers to reinvest more of their hard earned money in their businesses. This bill will have an immediate impact in every city and town in this country. In fact, more than 22 million small businesses will receive a much-needed infusion of capital. Several small business owners I have talked to in my district have already expressed strong support for this proposal. This includes businesses such as RC Fabricators in Hibbing, Minnesota, which manufactures precision steel and aluminum construction equipment, Extreme Equipment Repairs in Harris, Minnesota, which specializes in large transport truck repair, and the London Road Rental Center in Duluth, Minnesota, which provides equipment and party rentals for the Duluth area. For example, because of the recent success of Northern Minnesota's mining and paper industries, RC Fabricators has been looking for ways to expand, but high taxes have prevented them from accumulating enough capital to grow. This bill will ease their tax burden and allow them to update machinery, hire workers, and provide high quality products. These kinds of stories will be repeated throughout the country if we act on this legislation. Mr. Speaker, H.R. 9 is a common sense, pro-growth bill that will provide an immediate assistance to employers and American workers as we labor to jumpstart our economy and ease the burden felt by small businesses. I urge all of my colleagues to support the rule, as well as the underlying bill. Thank you and I yield back.

Mark Blyth: "Austerity - The History of a Dangerous Idea" | Talks at Google
Governments today in both Europe and the United States have succeeded in casting government spending as reckless wastefulness that has made the economy worse. In contrast, they have advanced a policy of draconian budget cuts--austerity--to solve the financial crisis. We are told that we have all lived beyond our means and now need to tighten our belts. This view conveniently forgets where all that debt came from. Not from an orgy of government spending, but as the direct result of bailing out, recapitalizing, and adding liquidity to the broken banking system. Through these actions private debt was rechristened as government debt while those responsible for generating it walked away scot free, placing the blame on the state, and the burden on the taxpayer. That burden now takes the form of a global turn to austerity, the policy of reducing domestic wages and prices to restore competitiveness and balance the budget. The problem, according to political economist Mark Blyth, is that austerity is a very dangerous idea. First of all, it doesn't work. As the past four years and countless historical examples from the last 100 years show, while it makes sense for any one state to try and cut its way to growth, it simply cannot work when all states try it simultaneously: all we do is shrink the economy. In the worst case, austerity policies worsened the Great Depression and created the conditions for seizures of power by the forces responsible for the Second World War: the Nazis and the Japanese military establishment. As Blyth amply demonstrates, the arguments for austerity are tenuous and the evidence thin. Rather than expanding growth and opportunity, the repeated revival of this dead economic idea has almost always led to low growth along with increases in wealth and income inequality. Austerity demolishes the conventional wisdom, marshaling an army of facts to demand that we recognize austerity for what it is, and what it costs us. About the Author: Mark Blyth is a faculty fellow at the Watson Institute, professor of international political economy in Brown's Political Science Department, and director of the University's undergraduate programs in development studies and international relations. He is the author of Great Transformations: Economic Ideas and Institutional Change in the Twentieth Century; editor of The Routledge Handbook of International Political Economy: IPE as a Global Conversation, which surveys different schools of IPE around the globe; and co-editor of a volume on constructivist theory and political economy titled Constructing the International Economy. He is working on a new book that questions the political and economic sustainability of liberal democracies, called The End of the Liberal World? Blyth is a member of the Warwick Commission on International Financial Reform. He is a member of the editorial board of the Review of International Political Economy, and his articles have appeared in journals such as the American Political Science Review, Perspectives on Politics, Comparative Politics, and World Politics. He has a PhD in political science from Columbia University and taught at Johns Hopkins University from 1997 to 2009. This talk was hosted by Boris Debic on behalf of [email protected]

Royal Commission into the Building and Construction Industry
The Royal Commission into the Building and Construction Industry (2001--2003) was a Royal Commission established by the Australian government to inquire into and report upon alleged misconduct in the building and construction industry in Australia. The establishment of the Commission followed various unsuccessful attempts by the Federal Government to impose greater regulation upon the conduct of industrial relations in that industry. Although the Commission found no evidence of organised criminal activity, it did articulate a case that the industry was characterised by lawlessness in the conduct of industrial relations. It recommended sweeping changes to industrial relations laws applicable to the industry. The government's attempts to implement those recommendations stalled in 2004, but were revived in 2005 after the Howard government secured control of the Senate. The Building and Construction Industry Federal government industry reform policy In May 1997 the Federal Government, with agreement from the States, prepared a National Building Industry Code of Practice. The government supplemented the Code with Implementation Guidelines. Fundamentally, the Code and the Guidelines were an attempt to regulate the conduct of industrial relations on construction projects funded by government, through the medium of contract rather than legislation. In July 1997 the (then) Department of Employment, Workplace Relations and Small Business formed a 'Workplace Reform Group' targeting four industries for reform: the meat processing industry, the coal mining industry, the building and construction industry and the waterfront industry. The Workplace Relations Act and the Trade Practices Act 1974 were to provide the legal tools to deliver reform. The 1998 waterfront dispute was a reflection of the focus placed on these important industries.

03 - The Early Disposal Policies
This 13 part series, known as Fractured Land Patterns, is the history of BLM. It was created in the mid 1980's as an interpretation of BLMs colorful history. The historical perspective presented centers around the uses, federal laws, and landmark events on Americas public lands which contributed to the fractured land ownership patterns that remain today. The series is divided into 2 broad sections the first is called The Public Disposal Era and consists of videos 1 - 6. The second is called Conservation and Beyond and covers videos 7 -13. The thirteen chapters in this chronology trace the settlement of the West from colonial times through the passage of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (FLPMA), which provides BLM with its multiple use mission. Set against the backdrop of dynamic economic, social, and environmental change, and with shifting national priorities, this series explains how the missions of the General Land Office and the U.S. Grazing Service were merged with a stroke of the pen by President Harry S. Truman in 1946 to create the Bureau of Land Management Disclaimer: The opinions and statements of non-BLM personnel are included to illustrate alternative points of view at the time and do not necessarily represent the official position of the BLM.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, this timely and insightful forum moderated by Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian Director Kevin Gover (Pawnee/Comanche) focuses on topical issues of reconciliation and highlights national apologies made to Native peoples. The symposium covers the eloquent apology issued in June 2008 by the Canadian government for the abuse and cultural loss suffered by Aboriginal peoples in Canada's residential schools. It includes a presentation on the Native American Apology Resolution recently passed in the United States Senate as well as an examination of reconciliation efforts in Guatemala. A wrap-up speaker considers the issues involved in apologies and reconciliation processes in a broad scope. Concluding with panel discussion and questions from the audience, Harvest of Hope seeks a deeper, more inclusive understanding of our national narratives and the experiences of the Native peoples of the Americas. In Part 4, Phil Fontaine gives a talk entitled, "The Apology Breakthrough: Now What?" Chief Phil Fontaine (Sagkeeng First Nation) is a dedicated and highly respected leader in Canada. He has been instrumental in facilitating change and advancement for First Nations people from the time he was first elected to public office as Chief, at the young age of twenty-eight. He is a proud member of the Sagkeeng First Nation in Manitoba and still plays an active role in the support of his community. In the early 1980s he was elected to the position of Manitoba Regional Chief for the Assembly of First Nations. When his term expired in 1991, he was elected Grand Chief of the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs where he served three consecutive terms. He played a key role in the development of Manitoba's Framework Agreement Initiative and in the defeat of the Meech Lake Accord, and signed an Employment Equity Agreement with thirty-nine federal agencies. In 1997 he stepped onto the national stage where he was elected to the highest elected position in First Nations politics, National Chief. He is now serving an unprecedented third term in office. His list of accomplishments as National Chief include signing the Declaration of Kinship and Cooperation of the Indigenous and First Nations of North America; being the first Indigenous leader to address the Organization of American States; leading the successful resolution and settlement of the 150-year Indian residential school tragedy; the Making Poverty History Campaign; lobbying for the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People; and negotiating a fair and just process for the settlement of specific land claims. National Chief Fontaine has received many awards and honors for his work, including four honorary degrees and membership in the Order of Manitoba. This symposium took place in the Rasmuson Theater of the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC on November 13, 2008.

Money, Power & Wall St: JP Morgan deal | PBS America
PBS America | Sky 534 | Virgin Media 243 | pbsamerica.co.uk Faced with the worst financial collapse since the Great Depression, what has been the response of Wall Street -- where the global crisis began in 2008 -- and the legislators in Washington? In a special four-hour documentary led by Michael Kirk and Martin Smith, FRONTLINE explores key decisions, missed opportunities, and the uneasy alliance between government and financial institutions tackling the disaster. The series examines how the Bush and Obama administrations have handled the situation while riven by internal divisions. The crisis has led to the largest federal bailout in US history and a rewriting of the rules of government -- both highly contentious -- but, handed such a poisoned chalice, did Obama have much choice? Looking to Europe as well as the US, this series finds the inner workings of global high finance are still largely shrouded in secrecy. Despite widespread anger and protests across much of the globe, effective regulatory reform remains elusive. FRONTLINE traces the rise and fall of the big banks, and asks whether many of the practices that contributed to the crisis are still in use and remain a threat.

A Christmas Carol
A short film after Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol but inspired by the earlier traditions of the Yuletide. A Christmas Carol began with Dickens' idea of issuing a pamphlet in response to horrific accounts of child labour in mines and factories. From the orphan begging for more in Oliver Twist to the heartless Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens highlighted poverty and squalor, condemning their corrupt causes. In Dickens journalism and novels he attacked specific targets - Poor Law legislation in Oliver Twist, the brutal Yorkshire schools in Nicholas Nickleby, the law [Pickwick Papers and Bleak House], government bureaucracy, lethargy and nepotism in Little Dorrit, extremist utilitarianism in Hard Times. The Christmas Carol is perhaps the most dramatic and poignant of these tales "A tale to make the reader laugh and cry -- to open his hands, and open his heart to charity...'' it influenced a huge cultural shift towards a more compassionate society, for a time, and resurrected a form of seasonal merriment that had been suppressed by the Puritan quelling of Yuletide pageantry in 17th-century England. My brief Occupy scene at start highlights the challenge to currrent economic and social injustice, as well as to introduce the other themes of my version of this tale, that our Christmas traditions themselves derive from earlier pagan and community minded festivals, thus the Occupy scene is an opportunity to reconsider what the celebration may mean now.. For any interested in the causes of Occupy and the threat that is destroying world environments and ccommunities alike, I recommend Naomi Klein's expose 'The Shock Doctrine; The Rise Of Disaster Capitalism' and more recently 'This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate'. I replaced Dickens' Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future with a mischievous Jack Skellington as Sandy Claws who finally gets his Christmas mission right and instead of the more usual three visits through time in the life of Ebeneezer Scrooge, my character 'Scourge' is given 3 visions instead, to the Three Realms of Celtic mythology. People don't always remember that Dickens was a great influence in ameliorating cruel Victorian attitudes towards poverty and inspired much social welfare reform. His appeal to the moral, ethical and spiritual in his Christmas Carol and other tales contributed to the Christmas time holidays and the humanitarian values they also carried. With a hope that this film may remind us to think of more than just our own family gatherings and gifts, that it may be a magical time to think with our hearts and consider the wider picture. To focus on the whole rather than any portion, to live more meaningful lives, that we may honor the Three Realms and each-other throughout our daily lives.

Chombo,Chipanga bid for freedom, Zimbabwe ex-minister Ignatius Chombo
.Chombo,Chipanga bid for freedom. Fungai Lupande Senior Court Reporter Former Finance Minister Ignatius Chombo and ex-Zanu-PF youth leader Kudzanai Chipanga (pictured above) will appear in court today for their bail application after the duo unsuccessfully challenged their placement on remand on Saturday. Chombo, the former Zanu-PF Secretary for Administration, and Chipanga, the former secretary for the party’s Youth League, argued that they were over-detained by State agents beyond the constitutionally prescribed 48 hours. Harare magistrates Mr Elisha Singano and Ms Josephine Sande, who are presiding over the cases, dismissed the applications, saying there was no evidence to substantiate the claims. The magistrates said it was clear that the pair were in police custody barely 48 hours before being brought to court. The prosecutor, Mr Edmore Nyazamba, is alleging that Chombo fraudulently forged documents that included a lease to acquire Subdivisions “K” Portion of Nthaba portion of Glen Lorne from City of Harare, where he is said to have signed and manufactured a fraudulent lease agreement on January 1, 1997. City of Harare is said to have been prejudiced of $900 000. On the second count of criminal abuse of duty by a public officer, Chombo is accused of having received an application from City of Harare for a change of use for an open space in Helensvale into a residential area in September 2006. He allegedly used his power as the Minister of Local Government to allocate it to a company he co-owns, called Harvest–Net Enterprises. The property is worth $2,7 million. On the third count, Chombo is accused of defrauding the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe through the Crops and Livestock Support Facility, where he received $14 billion in Zimbabwean dollars. The court said Chombo did not use the money for the intended purpose, which was buying capital equipment that included a 30-tonne lorry, 30-tonne truck and combine harvester, among others. He is said to have issued some cheques mainly through CBZ Bank for other purposes. Chipanga is facing charges of publishing or communicating false statements prejudicial to the State as defined in Section 31 (a) (iii) of the Criminal (Codification and Reform) Act Chapter 9.23 or alternatively causing disaffection among the police force or defence forces as defined in Section 30 of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act. The charges arose from a press conference on November 14, where he accused Zimbabwe Defence Forces Commander General Constantino Chiwenga of stealing money realised from diamond mining in Marange. 🌴 Get Free Subscribe Here: - https://goo.gl/QrjDRC 🌴 Website: https://goo.gl/UasZwB 🌴 Twitter: - https://goo.gl/WdWB1i 🌴 Plus: - https://goo.gl/4viMNi 🙏Thanks For Watching.

2014 VNMP LBG Seminar, Session #4: The Union Dissolved - Causes of the Civil War
Ranger Tim Kavanaugh presents Causes of the Civil War. Session #4 of the 2014 Licensed Battlefield Guide Training Seminar, held on February 25, 2014 at the park's Visitor Center at Vicksburg National Military Park in Vicksburg, Mississippi. Our apologies for cinematography; the camera was set up to capture the PowerPoint presentation to be given later in the session, but none was planned or given during this hour. Please enjoy the audio! CAUSES OF THE CIVIL WAR: I. Why Are We Discussing This? 1. Is there an "official" government version? 2. Are LBGs subject to the Politically Correct "Thought Police"? 3. What makes this the preferred version? 4. ...and if I find myself in the minefield? II. What Caused the Civil War? 1. Secession. 2. Two part question, really: a. Why did the "2%" (rich and politicians) start the war? b. Why did men fight it? III. But I was always told it was about... 1. Tariffs a. What are tariffs? i. A tax on imports/exports. ii. "Protectionist" tariffs start in U.S. in 1816 (20% - 30%). a.) Nationalistic b.) Supported by Calhoun & the South. iii. Tariff of 1824 (35%) a.) Impacts and opposed by South. b. The "Tariff of Abomination" of 1828 i. Democratic Brinkmanship. ii. Meant to hurt JQ Adams, help elect Andy Jackson -- backfires. iii. Up to 48% tax rates. a.) Hated in South, especially SC -- opposed by Calhoun b.) Jackson lowers 10% in Tariff of 1832 c.) SC causes "Nullification Crisis", doctrine of States' Rights. d.) 1833 Compromise Tariff. c. Tariff of 1857 i. Lowest since 1816 (17% average). ii. Proposed by Robert Hunter of Virginia iii. Popular in South, despised in North. iv. Replaced by much higher Morill Tariff d. Why secede because tariffs have been lowered? 2. States' Rights a. What Rights are we talking about? i. Is the North taking away Southern State Sovereignty or vice versa? a.) The 3/5ths Compromise (1787) b.) Fugitive Slave Act of 1793 c.) "Personal Liberty Laws" in North d.) Fugitive Slave Law of 1850. e.) Dred Scott (1857) f.) 1860: Five states (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts) allow free blacks to vote. g.) Lemmon vs New York. (1853, 1860). IV. What Does the South Say (at the time) is the Reason for Secession? 1. SC Ordnance of Secession: 2. Mississippi Statement of Grievances: 3. The CSA Constitution: 4. Alexander Stephens' Cornerstone Speech V. The Economics of Slavery 1. In 1860, only 4.8% of the South owned one or more slaves. 2. Slaves constituted 12.7% of the U.S. population in 1860, almost 4 million, primarily in the South. 3. A healthy slave in 1860 had an individual property value of more than $120,000 in modern currency (2011). 4. The aggregate market value of the slaves themselves was estimated at $3 Billion (1860) or $10-15 Trillion (2011 Dollars) -- the largest accumulation of wealth in the 19th Century world -- worth more than all Northern factories, railroads, mills, mines, etc. 5. Cotton was 60% of US GDP in 1860, 75% of the world's supply -- the base of the Industrial Revolution. 6. 85% was shipped to Great Britain. 7. Natchez: City of Millionaires. VI. The Politics of Slavery 1. Wealth = Power 2. Losing the House of Reps 3. The Republican Platform and the West 4. Agronomy necessitates western movement. 5. Lincoln & Republicans pose long-term threat to the "Cotton Kingdom". 6. Why did the 98% support the 2%? 7. How did Natchez and Vicksburg view secession? 8. The South fights from the inception to preserve slavery, but the North does not go to war to end it. 9. Lincoln uses the issue of emancipation to keep French and British out of the war, and to ennoble and sanctify the Union cause and re-inspire a war-weary Northern population. VII. Why did men fight this war? 1. Personal reasons usually differ greatly from political and economic reasons. 2. The Northerner fought to suppress a rebellion, uphold the Constitution and preserve the Union. Later in the war, the scope is broadened to include emancipation. 3. The Southerner fought to repel an invasion, and defend his state, home, culture and economy. 4. All fought because it was exciting and expected of them, and would only last a month. VIII. I Thought the Winners Always Wrote the History? 1. The Lost Cause. 2. Mildred Lewis Rutherford. 3. The Centennial/Civil Rights Movement IX. What can we compare to today? 1. A nation and government transformed: "These" United States vs "The" United States. 2. Anti-Washington feelings? 3. Modern simile: Oil? X. So, this is what I tell them? 1. ...well, the Reader's Digest Version. 2. Our "Deliverable" is factual history. 3. If they can only deal with the 8 second sound byte, what is the commonality and central themes for all of the above...? SLAVERY AND UNION. QUESTIONS?

Senator Joe Ludwig Minerals Resource Rent Tax speech
We on this side—Labor—have a fundamental view that Australians deserve to share in the benefits of minerals that we all own. The MRRT enables the benefits from mining to be shared across the Australian community, while minimising market distortions. It is, fundamentally, good public policy and good economics. The repeal of the associated measures contained in this bill will hit Australians right across the board, especially those who can least afford to be hit, and it will attack all corners of Australian society. That is what this government is proposing to do with this repeal bill.

Close of reporter taking notes 9. SOUNDBITE (English) Ericq Pierre, Haitian Prime Minister: "You know, we have a lot of problems to solve in this country, but if you think about it, the Haitian people should be considered greater than their problems." 10. Mid of interview STORYLINE: Haiti's newly designated Prime Minster Ericq Pierre, in his first international interview since being nominated, spoke to AP Television on Friday about his agenda in tackling the problems facing the country. A senior official with the Inter-American Development Bank, Pierre had pledged on Monday to continue poverty-fighting reforms, but warned the country is in "bad shape" after food riots that forced his predecessor from office. Ericq Pierre told The Associated Press that he would not pursue his own agenda if approved by parliament, rather pushing President Rene Preval's long-term projects in agriculture, justice, education and employment. Sitting in his hotel room at the Hotel Montana in the hills above Port-au-Prince, Pierre said the solution was to encourage investment and create jobs. "My job with the government will be to draw some programs from this master document (President's plan for poverty reduction in Haiti). The priorities in this country look very clear. We have to fight the high cost of living and try to create jobs. Jobs, jobs and jobs," he told AP Television. Pierre echoed the president's call for increased national production of food, breaking Haiti's need to import nearly everything it consumes, including more than 80 percent of rice. But the difficulty of that manoeuvre was made clear when Preval also announced a 15 percent subsidy on imported rice, paid for by international aid and importers. Pierre, was cleared by the Senate on Wednesday to go forward with questioning and votes in both houses. If approved, he will then face a more daunting task of restoring confidence in a government whose perceived failure to curb soaring food prices helped spark April riots that left at least six Haitians and one U.N. peacekeeper dead. Calling the riots "a huge setback," Pierre said he believed the violence was a result of protests being "hijacked" by criminals and disaffected youths. The 63-year-old official, a native of the southern peninsula town of Jeremie, has faced this parliamentary process before. In 1997, a different set of Haitian lawmakers rejected his nomination to be prime minister, in part because of distrust over his ties with the influential U.S.-based regional bank. But following the unrest, which spread from the southern port of Les Cayes and paralyzed the capital for three days, Pierre called on lawmakers to put politics aside and consider his experience.

Joy Pullmann Speaks about the Parent Trigger at CPAC Chicago
Joy Pullmann, managing editor of The Heartland Institute's School Reform News and editor of the Education section of the Heartlander digital magazine, spoke at CPAC Chicago on the "Lake Woebegon Effect" on education. The introduction rightly credits Heartland's SRN as being a pioneer in publishing news and information on school choice, "an indisensible resources for what is going on around the country in school reform." Pullmann speaks about the intellectual deficit in today's public education system, despite an average of $13,000 spent per student. Our kids are not only way behind students in most developed nations — and many developing countries — American kids are tragically ignorant about the teachings of liberty and the way our government works. And lest you think kids in "rich" public school districts are doing OK ... Pullmann smashes that myth. Bottom line: The public school system is a failure. We've tragically ceded the direction of the education of our chlidren away from parents and put all the trust in "experts" who didn't earn that and haven't proven they deserve it. And while teachers cannot parent, parents can teach — or at least join others to take better control of their kids education via The Parent Trigger. It's time for parents to assert their rights and take back control over our public schools.

9 Of New York's Most INSANE Unsolved Mysteries
9 Of New York's Most INSANE Unsolved Mysteries. 1. The Murder of Arnold Rothstein at the Park Central Hotel. Known by many names – A. R., Mr. Big, The Fixer, The Big Bankroll, The Man Uptown, and The Brain - Arnold Rothstein seemed more myth than man.... 2. The Wall Street Bombing. At the stroke of noon on Sept. 16, 1920, a bomb exploded along Wall Street, killing 38 people and maiming hundreds more. It was the worst terrorist bombing in the United States until the Oklahoma City attack in 1995, the worst in New York until the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center.... 3. The 1964 World’s Fair's Buried Underground Home It's a spacious, secure home that could probably fetch a pretty penny on today's NYC real estate market - the only problem is that no one knows if it still exists. The mystery centers around The Underground World Home.... 4. The American Museum of Natural History Jewel Heist On the night of October 29, 1964, three young Americans from Miami, Florida, made the national headlines in what America called the 'jewel heist of the century'. The target was a jewel collection taken from the American Museum of Natural History in New York... 5. The Lost Eagles of Pennsylvania Station. The obliteration of the McKim, Mead & White-designed Pennsylvania Station in 1963, just a half-century after its completion, helped galvanize grassroots preservation efforts that eventually led to New York City Mayor Robert F. Wagner signing the Landmarks Law on April 19, 1965.... 6. The Lost Locomotive in the Atlantic Avenue Tunnel. "With continued silence from the DOT, we are dead in the water, with the potential of a major historical find right under our feet in Brooklyn." Earlier this month, Bob Diamond.... 7. The Cow Tunnels of New York City In the late 19th century, there were some two million cows being herded in the streets of New York City. It’s long been rumored that underground “cow tunnels” were created to ease the congestion, but evidence (archeological or otherwise) has been hard to come by and exact locations have not been verified... 8. The Lost Bogardus Building A building that once stood in downtown New York City in the Washington Market area was stolen not once, but twice in its history. The area was targeted for urban renewal in the 1960s, but because the Bogardus Building.... 9. The Cornerstone of St. Patrick's Cathedral. Much is known about the cornerstone of St. Patrick’s Cathedral. As the Archdiocese of New York embarks on a five-year, $175 million renovation of what has been described as the nation’s largest Roman Catholic Gothic sanctuary, architects and historians have meticulously reviewed every detail of James Renwick Jr.’s original blueprints.....

Savings and Loan Crisis: Explained, Summary, Timeline, Bailout, Finance, Cost, History
The following is a detailed summary of the major causes for losses that hurt the savings and loan business in the 1980s. More on the topic: https://www.amazon.com/gp/search?ie=UTF8&tag=tra0c7-20&linkCode=ur2&linkId=51c55ec15248eed374fb539b2332be3d&camp=1789&creative=9325&index=books&keywords=savings%20loan%20crisis Lack of net worth for many institutions as they entered the 1980s, and a wholly inadequate net worth regulation. Decline in the effectiveness of Regulation Q in preserving the spread between the cost of money and the rate of return on assets, basically stemming from inflation and the accompanying increase in market interest rates. Absence of an ability to vary the return on assets with increases in the rate of interest required to be paid for deposits. Increased competition on the deposit gathering and mortgage origination sides of the business, with a sudden burst of new technology making possible a whole new way of conducting financial institutions generally and the mortgage business specifically. Savings and Loans gained a wide range of new investment powers with the passage of the Depository Institutions Deregulation and Monetary Control Act and the Garn--St. Germain Depository Institutions Act. A number of states also passed legislation that similarly increased investment options. These introduced new risks and speculative opportunities which were difficult to administer. In many instances management lacked the ability or experience to evaluate them, or to administer large volumes of nonresidential construction loans. Elimination of regulations initially designed to prevent lending excesses and minimize failures. Regulatory relaxation permitted lending, directly and through participations, in distant loan markets on the promise of high returns. Lenders, however, were not familiar with these distant markets. It also permitted associations to participate extensively in speculative construction activities with builders and developers who had little or no financial stake in the projects. Fraud and insider transaction abuses. A new type and generation of opportunistic savings and loan executives and owners—some of whom operated in a fraudulent manner — whose takeover of many institutions was facilitated by a change in FSLIC rules reducing the minimum number of stockholders of an insured association from 400 to one. Dereliction of duty on the part of the board of directors of some savings associations. This permitted management to make uncontrolled use of some new operating authority, while directors failed to control expenses and prohibit obvious conflict of interest situations. A virtual end of inflation in the American economy, together with overbuilding in multifamily, condominium type residences and in commercial real estate in many cities. In addition, real estate values collapsed in the energy states — Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma — particularly due to falling oil prices — and weakness occurred in the mining and agricultural sectors of the economy. Pressures felt by the management of many associations to restore net worth ratios. Anxious to improve earnings, they departed from their traditional lending practices into credits and markets involving higher risks, but with which they had little experience. The lack of appropriate, accurate, and effective evaluations of the savings and loan business by public accounting firms, security analysts, and the financial community. Organizational structure and supervisory laws, adequate for policing and controlling the business in the protected environment of the 1960s and 1970s, resulted in fatal delays and indecision in the examination/supervision process in the 1980s. Federal and state examination and supervisory staffs insufficient in number, experience, or ability to deal with the new world of savings and loan operations. The inability or unwillingness of the Bank Board and its legal and supervisory staff to deal with problem institutions in a timely manner. Many institutions, which ultimately closed with big losses, were known problem cases for a year or more. Often, it appeared, political considerations delayed necessary supervisory action. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Savings_and_loan_scandal
