North Dakota's Economic “Miracle”— It's Not Oil by Ellen Brown

Occupy Protestors need to look only as far as North Dakota to see that their cause is just. 

According to Ellen Brown, North Dakota is the only state in the country with their own state bank, and they are the only  state in the country that has had economic success since 2008.

Kentucky Occupy Protestors have already made headway, don't give up Kentucky (click here to see inspiring video), when they protested to have all state investments removed from Chase Bank.

Brown refutes the argument that North Dakota's success is based on their own oil resources with several important pieces of supporting data.

I would suggest that the stability that oil brings to North Dakota's economy could be mirrored in other states by having the U.S. government back state banks in other states and get wall street investing chieftains like Chase Bank completely out of the loop.

Why We Protest, Banks won't "Change" their evil ways, say it would be showing favoritism if they started negotiating with homeowners.


The banks' most overused excuse for not working with homeowners is because they don't want to be accused of showing favoritism. So instead, the banks appear to just want to bury everybody who needs their debt restructured. 

A homeowner CANNOT get their debt restructured without first being put into credit default. Neither can anyone with credit card debt or student loan debt. This credit default scam against the 99% is why the economy is not recovering, why it won't recover, and why the 99% continues to lose their homes and home equity value back to the banks.

The Media spins 2011 "Black Friday Record Sales" with little insight or investigation.

Besides the fact that Black Friday Weekend Shoppers had significantly more time to shop because many major stores were open around the clock, another factor that NO ONE in the media has mentioned is the percentage of debit card purchases versus credit card purchases.
I would suggest that if debit card purchases continue to increase while credit card purchases continue to decrease, then we can be grateful that people see the error of running up credit card debt. 
It saddens me that no news station wanted to mention what debit card sales were versus credit card sales.

It saddens me that news stations are so superficial, and so afraid that the occupy movement was going to dent Black Friday weekend sales, that all they cared to report about was the total number of money spent in an effort to marginalize and demoralize the occupy movement. Don't believe me?
A google search using the following words...debit card, credit card, "black friday" revealed over 5 million web hits, AND ZERO news hits.
The steps to helping to save america as I see them are, lesser and lesser credit card purchases, more debit card purchases, and an increase in american made products being purchases via debit card.   

Debit Card purchases of american made products are what the media should be pre-occupied with the most, presently, this appears to be the least of their concerns.

A Penny for a Politicians thoughts?

If you see a politician, judge, or anyone associated with our government in public, leave a penny by their feet. Don't throw the penny at them, just leave the penny near them. 

A penny for their thoughts.

If you can afford it, leave two pennies on the ground near the government official, one for each thought that particular politician will have that day.

It appears that MSNBC is covering its tracks regarding their 2008 pro wall street bailout slant.

In my opinion, MSNBC is possibly the fulcrum point for the present day economic duress that most americans find themselves in. Sometime in late 2007 or very early 2008, MSNBC decided that Barack Obama should be the democratic nominee, even though Hillary Clinton still was slightly more popular with the democratic voting base.

It's possible that if MSNBC had not taken sides, Hillary Clinton's popular vote lead would have been more substantial. Based on her campaign speeches AND her one on one meetings with main street, I am convinced that Hillary Clinton would have focused on the home foreclosure issue in a responsible and mature manner. I believe that Hillary Clinton would have garnered support across both political parties while also actually helping distressed american homeowners. This in turn would have stabilized the ENTIRE economy.

As president, Hillary Clinton would have actually helped main street, and inevitably, wall street would have not looked so good. Could this be the reason that George Soros dropped his support for Hillary Clinton, and went with Barack Obama instead?

Once Soros gave Obama his support, others began militantly supporting Barack Obama, including, Huffington Post, MSNBC, Keith Olbermann and the leg tingler Chris Matthews, Michael Moore, Move on dot org, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Maria Shriver, Oprah Winfrey and many many more. There was even a contingent of 400 bloggers who rabidly supported Barack Obama in their oped pieces.  All of this happened before millions upon millions of democratic voters had a chance to vote for either democratic candidate.

Having helped Barack Obama win the democratic nomination, MSNBC decided to go the extra step. I am not 100% sure of this but I believe it was Contessa Brewer of MSNBC that handled crucial portions of the live coverage of the first wall street bailout vote in congress. I recall Contessa Brewer almost having a panicked look on her face as she reported on the first bailout defeat for the wall street bailout bill. 

I can't find Contessa Brewer's panicked face nor any of the MSNBC coverage of the first 2008 wall street bailout vote on youtube or anywhere else. In my opinion MSNBC reported with a very noticeable slant that was pro wall street bailout vote. 

However, I did find some after the fact youtube clips where MSNBC anchors are complaining about bits of pork mixed in with the wall street bailout package. This is complete revisionist history in my opinion by MSNBC and the occupy movement should know about since nowadays MSNBC, Keith Olbermann, Huffington Post, Michael Moore and Move on dot ort are all cheering on the Occupy Movement.

If you managed to record any of the first or second MSNBC 2008 wall street bailout coverage vote, you probably are not allowed to post it online because of copyright infringement, and MSNBC appears to not want to keep alive one of their darkest moments, their apparently panicked view that the wall street bailout plan MUST go through.

The MSNBN behavior in 2008 is just another justification for the Occupy Movement, the people and news entities that are most supportive now, were among the dishonest, duplicitous 2008 group that forced their will over the will of the voting public before the voting public had a chance to vote in the democratic race.

Justifiable Debt Restructure would Solve MOST of the Debt Problems the 99% are Facing.

A funny thing happened on the way to the forum. I just googled the phrase "justifiable debt restructure". There were only ten total links. The funny part is, they were all mine.


So what is Justifiable Debt Restructure, aka JDR? 

JDR means that consumers their restructure their debts without being declared in default when the economy unexpectedly crashes and the crash can be connected to illegal and fraudulent doings within the financial sector of the United States and their allies. Since the illegal activity makes it more difficult for people to find jobs,  we the people can renegotiate our debts. 

Because it's "Justifiable" debt restructure, requirements can be added such as having a valid reason for the JDR. Medical emergency, job loss, care taking for a family member, natural disaster, high interest rate on a credit card or home mortgage, these are all Justifiable reason's for a debt restructure when poor economic times are at hand.
Anyone who argues against JDR is in my opinion part of the 1%.
Justifiable Debt Restructure is not debt forgiveness, nor is JDR principle reduction either. 

Justifiable debt reduction would allow the 99% to renegotiate the profit margin (aka interest rate charges) that the loaner has made on an existing debt. 

As the Occupy Movement correctly states, the banks got bailed out, the 99% got sold out. However, the Occupy Movement seems intent on punishing the wall street cheaters and corporate lobbyists while also making many changes to the entire political system, and somewhat less concerned about immediately helping the 99% who are falling off economic cliffs each and everyday.

I would suggest an admirable and prolific achievement would be to get justifiable debt restructure implemented as soon as possible. One immediate result would be the financial sector hiring as many as 50,000 workers to handle the tens of millions of applications for JDR.

Each approved JDR would result in less profits going back to wall street and the billionaires who demand they receive the largest residual profits from the vast wealth they already have. Isn't that what the Occupy Movement is also about reforming?

Pelosi on 60 minutes insider trading piece was a national disgrace. Impeach Pelosi, please, now, please.

I've posted this story on DailyPUMA, along with a youtube video of Pelosi's lie. Pumas, many of whom were life long democrats, began protesting the 2008 democratic nomination process when they saw the rampant voting fraud being perpetrated by Pelosi, Reid, Soros, and Obama. 

PUMA's also witnessed the embarrassing betrayal of Hillary Clinton by prominent women such as Oprah Winfrey, Arianna Huffington, Maria Shriver, and Nancy Pelosi, who all conspired to make sure they were not joined by a more powerful women as president in 2008.

Even though politicians tend to be bought out, it's apparent that Hillary Clinton was pushed aside by George Soros because she was not going to be Soros's sock puppet. We as a nation lost a chance to see the greatest president ever, Hillary Clinton, who would have listened to common sense from common people.

More importantly, this video of a sociopathic Pelosi looking in front of so many people at a news conference perfectly demonstrates why the occupy movement exists. 

Pelosi MUST go.

Occupy Minnesota saving homes from foreclosure.

Occupy News does not mean to demoralize any Occupy Group by highlighting a few over all the others.

Occupy News does believe in supporting actual economic legislature that will equalize power for main street and the 99% against wall street and the banks.

One of the five Occupy News talking points (and a position only taken by Occupy News) is to stop the foreclosure actions against homeowners that are occurring at a rate of 3,000 to 7,500 PER DAY. Because of what appears to be dereliction of duty by the U.S. government and the Federal reserve that started in 2000 when both entities moved aside and let wall street control the home mortgage industry, homeowners need to be protected from the wall street wolves.

Occupy News congratulates Occupy Minnesota as they attempt to slow down foreclosures being initiated by those who have already done wrong, foreclosing on those who were left unprotected by their own government and the federal reserve.

When does the Occupy Movement turn into a Modern day Robin Hood Story?

Robin Hood, robbed from the rich, gave back to the good, what was rightfully theirs. On that note, I recommend the following Five Occupy Actions.

Idea number one. 
Distressed Homeowner MUST be given options. Either instantly reduce EVERYBODY'S home mortgage rate to 4% and also offer a credit card interest rate reduction on existing debt for anybody who can pay down their actual debt.

Over a year ago I had advocated distressed homeowners get at least 80-90% of their original down payment back, plus any home equity that may have accrued, (although for most people the home equity aspect may be a moot point). 
Chase bank appears to have started doing something similar. Chase Bank appears to be actually giving distressed homeowners 35,000 dollars to LEAVE their home via a short sale. However, if this one payment fits all approach is Chase Bank's approach, it becomes typical Chase Bank mass indifference and unfairly clumps everybody together.
Idea number two.
Why aren't occupiers shouting down the home foreclosure auctions?

People who are in a distressed homeownership situation are being completely stolen from specifically because they cannot restructure their debts without being defaulted upon. 

Everyday 3,000 to 10,000 homeowners are foreclosed upon in this country. When distressed homeowners notice the occupy movements disinterest in their plight, do you think they will ever want to join the occupy movement after the fact?

Idea number three.
My and highlights the ONE BILLION DOLLARS A MONTH theft by credit protector insurance. When one calculates that credit protector insurance fraud has been going on for 15 years, the total fraud could be as high as 100 billion to 200 billion dollars. Would like to see a grand jury investigate credit protector insurance fraud and refund the 100 billion to 200 billion dollars back to main street.

Idea number four.
How about instantly giving the 99% a way to fight back against the banks by inserting the words DOES NOT into the banking law that states, Justifiable debt restructuring (DOES NOT) require a credit default first.

This one simple change to the debt law would require the banks to hire at least 50,000 people to review tens of millions of justifiable debt restructuring applications. The bottom line is both the jobs and the debt restructuring would take UNDESERVED money out of wall streets hands and keep it on main street.

Idea number five. 
Congressional insider trading MUST END. The recent Sixty Minutes expose' into congressional insider trading was head scratcher. I think most people had just assumed this nonsense had stopped long ago. Nancy Pelosi's sociopathic denial right on camera was an all time stunner for me.
The five ideas listed above either GIVE BACK money and resources to main street, aka the 99%, while also giving main street and the 99% a way to protect their remaining assets, or they stop congress from being openly bribed via stock offerings and IPOs.
Where is Robin Hood and his angry band of protestors when we need them? 
When does the Occupy Movement begin to send re-occupiers out to be modern day robin hoods?

Just asking.

Swarm the Banks Blog asks a simple but important question about the Government and the Federal Reserve's Role in protecting U.S. Homeowners from Wall Street.

If you read my latest Swarm the Banks article I hope you will experience an "aha" moment. 

The Swarm the Banks article with the hoped for "aha moment" may also help the non-occupiers understand what has gone wrong in the past ten years that needs cleaning up.

I believe the Swarm the Banks article completely justifies the Occupy Movement and their anger at our own government, the federal reserve, wall street, and our war machine economy and mentality.

Occupy St. Louis Occupiers being Arrested. Live Stream has the feed.

Occupy Livestream right now (Nov. 11, 2011, 10:45 PM Pacific standard time) has St. Louis Occupiers being arrested.

Wall Street Wives Reality TV show, doesn't it make you want to vomit?

Ramping up Reality TV show Wall Street Wives sure seems like the kind of show where boycotting anyone associated with it seems like the right thing to do.

Even though a show like Wall Street Wives might actually expose how deals get made on Wall Street, the timing seems bad, no?

Occupy RSS Blog Feeds show plenty of hot spots brewing for Monday Morning, Nov. 7, 2011

Occupy News has created a temporary urgent section for Occupy blogs that are facing court or unfair treatment by the police. 

Occupy Tuscaloosa has sent people to support Occupy Atlanta. 

Occupy Riverside and Occupy Rochester have not been able to update their blogs.  Occupy Riverside I saw on a Los Angeles news station was being arrested even as protestors claimed they had been compliant with police. Rochester has not posted in days yet their last post described several days of police intervention.

Occupy Santa Cruz, Occupy Delaware, Occupy Riverside, Occupy Rochester, Occupy DC and Occupy Oakland are dealing with issues ranging from Police Brutality to Eviction threats to citations to stupid drivers who assault Occupiers with their cars, and that may not be the full list.

And Los Angeles reported 20 Occupy Arrests.


out of over 20,000 blogs.
