King Abdullah the Leader

There is a reason why Jordanian King King Abdullah II has been termed a warrior king. This small detail seems to have escaped ISIS.

 

ISIS made a huge mistake by releasing its slickly produced and horrific video of Jordanian fighter pilot Muadh al-Kasasbeh  being caged and burned alive. If ISIS’ wanted to instill fear, it has instead, instilled fury from Muslims worldwide.

 

Obama may be weak-kneed, Jordan’s warrior king, King Abdullah II is not! His pledge of  a “severe” response,  has already begun.

 

In the 72 hours since the video’s release Jordan has hanged two Al Qaeda terrorists, one being the female suicide bomber ISIS was using in its faux negotiations with Jordan and killed 55 terrorists including a top leader known as the “Prince of Ninevah”.

The AP is reporting that Jordanian warplanes bombed Islamic State targets against the militants who control large areas of neighboring Syria and Iraq.

 

Let’s get this straight; one cannot lead from behind! That concept is rightly called following, akin to the children’s game of asking first, Mother May I.

 

Leading from behind could be one of the most inane (real leaders call it insane) concepts ever to come from the ranks of Team Obama and its supporters in the MSM.

Obama the lagger, leading from behind!

It is laughable to think that winning generals across the ages including Washington, Grant, Patton, Eisenhower, Clark or Petraeus would consider this for even a nanosecond.

Yet, Team Obama goes forward with this nonsense as the world struggles to fight ISIS and Islamic Extremism.

Jordan’s King Abdullah II has done more in the first three days after the video was shown to show the world how to defeat ISIS than Obama has done in over a year. BTW, Jordan’s warrior king has no problem calling out the ISIS terrorists for what they are,  Islamic terrorists.

Jordan’s bombing sorties have gone from a measly 7 per day to 56 in 3 days.

He has vowed his country will fight ISIS until they “run out of fuel and bullets”.

 

Are Bailed Out Big Banks & the Feds Preparing to Raid Depositor Accounts for Bail-ins?

WASHINGTON – The questionable practice of “bail-ins” begun by Cyprus a year ago to keep banks solvent is beginning to spread to other nations, and holders of large deposits are starting to see their balances plunge literally overnight.

A “bail-in,” as opposed to a bailout that countries especially in Europe have been seeking from the International Monetary Fund and the European Union, is a recognition that such outside monetary injections won’t be forthcoming.

What’s a bail-in?

 

Essentially it is a grab of a percentage of a depositor’s account as a way to hold additional money in reserve to help banks balance sheets meet the government’s reserve demands. Put another way, this is a new method of taking private sector wealth as fashioned after the Cyrus fiasco this spring.

 

A recent article in American Banker spells it out saying the era of the bank bail-in is upon us. The Wall Street Journal reported that the banks most likely to give you and IOU in exchange for your hard earned cash are Wells Fargo, JP Morgan Chase and Citigroup. In reality any bank that received a government bailout is a candidate to look to YOU for THEIR bail-in!

 

BANKS ROBBING US3Have you heard of the FDIC-BOE plan that many banks are supporting?

 

Under the plan big banks would get our (your) money and we (you) would get bank shares. That is, you would get bank shares in an institution that is basically insolvent or it wouldn’t be raiding your account to begin with!  We wouldn’t be left empty handed. No, no…we’d get the bank’s IOUs otherwise known as converted bank equity shares.

 

Converted! Do you like that term? What it means is the FDIC under Obama has allowed your cash to be stolen (such an unpleasant term) or converted (see, isn’t that better!) for their use!

 

Remember that business Obama said that you didn’t build by yourself?

 

Well, those same fine people believe that whatever is theirs is theirs and whatever is yours is also theirs!  In all their wisdom, they believe because the taxpayer bailouts were so unpopular that stealing from small business owners and smaller bank “shareholders” with no voice in Washington, will be less egregious!

 

The acts that are already in motion now would deliver clear title to the banks of depositor funds. Buried within the Dodd-Frank bill is a provision that makes bail-ins legal!

 

Plans are under way for our global economy, plans that include global banking allowing access to your accounts. Was the so-called Cyprus Experiment a prelude to the launch of a global trend of bank deposit confiscation? Only the most naive could think otherwise.

 

Why is it so important to know what is happening in other countries, Canada for instance? Private pension funds were just raided by the government in Poland, and a bail-in is being organized for one of the largest banks in Italy.

 

As recently pointed out in Time to Run from the Banks, now that bail-ins are becoming globally acceptable, no bank account and no pension fund will ever be 100% safe again.

 

What is means for us is that the governments of the world are eying our money as part of the solution to any future failures of major banks outside the U.S.

 

There is one final consideration, the worst part, as it were. Your hard earned money may be used, or “bailed-in” in the future to help bailout the banks/countries whose practices have caused the upheavals in Spain, Greece, Ireland, Portugal.

 

Remember Lehman Brothers that was too big to fail? Nuff said…

 

One comment about this video.

This woman isn’t a financial expert, but she does possess more common sense than those (fill in your own adjective ending with er here) in Washington. Her voice helps get through to the important points about bail-ins.

This Egyptian jr high student should be Egypt’s next president

His name is Ali Muhammad. In October of 2012 he was asked why he was part of the protests taking place in Egypt. He answered, “so that Egypt would not become anyone’s private property.”

 

Unfortunately, Morsi was elected president under their new constitution. Almost immediately Morsi began dismantling the new constitution, the constitutional court and flip-flopping on the many promises made during the election.

 

Twenty-two million Egyptians took to the streets in June, despite the Egyptian military admonishments that Morsi change the direction he was taking the country, he refused and he was overthrown!

 

All of which leads us back to Ali Muhammad.

 

Call it coming from the mouth of babes.  Let me opine, that this junior high school student has demonstrated more common sense and honesty than the myriad of politicians in Washington. Mr. Obama, Mr. Kerry, Mr. McCain. are you listening???

 

If it were up to me, I’d vote for Ali Muhammad for Egypt’s next democratically elected president!
