Finance Heads Ditch Obama-Decide Business Cycle Must Run Its Course At Last.An Opening For Economic/Social Populist Palin

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on September 10, 2011

Sy Harding of Asset Management Research Corp. has posted an article at the financial analysis site:
 Market Oracle titled “Prepare For A Recession and Stocks Bear Market.” Apart from the economic analysis, which I believe is cogent and correct in its views on what lies ahead there are, I believe, an important political considerations to be gleaned.

In the extract below, and please read the entire article for all the support information, Harding sets  out that central bankers intervened to prevent a cataclysmic collapse then once that had been voiced bankers in the rest of the developed world let the business cycle start its normal course. The USA did not and pumped in huge amounts of printed money which has not had the desired effect of lowering the unemployment rate.

Clearly the world’s bankers are willing to ride out the social dislocation, slow growth (U.K. for example) to prevent inflation. Even China has reined it the massive expansionary policy which was in danger of igniting food inflation and the subsequent threat to the regime that would have posed. Harding makes the point that Bernanke too now seems to have reconciled himself to the fact that further stimulus will not work and, like his colleagues world-wide, appears ready to let matters take their course.

It is not only the bankers. Even the real estate industry leaders, which is a decimated area of the economy, are pushing for the natural ebb and flow to be allowed to take its course. See ” Realtor’s, builders say housing bust must run its course”

That this should have been done right after the economy stabilized is a sad matter of history and one can give Bernanke credit for being a concerned human, even though mistaken, as he took action to stave off what he thought would be another 1930’s scenario for too long. Perhaps he thought he might end up in the history books as another Bruning whose overly tight economic policies in Germany led to the level of social dislocation that led, in a major part to Hitler’s ascendency.

Harding goes on to say:

“President Obama did call for Congress to step up to the plate and pass his $450 billion jobs bill.

But even if the proposal should get through the political grinder of the grid-locked Congress, it would be too little too late by the time it could be implemented.

“So prepare for a recession and bear market.”

The bankers clearly see no need for President Obama, as if they are willing to allow for the unemployment rate to stay as it is, the share market to go bear, and for the recession to stay at least at the level it is now, then his chances of getting re-elected would be slim. It shows that, perhaps, the economic payers are ,in the end genuinely concerned with controlling inflation, and preventing, on the other hand, a cataclysmic depression, more than they are with controlling who is the president.

This may open the way for a genuine progressive conservative like Sarah Palin who can propose an economic and social populism, a return to a states rights focus as her history of solid economic management in Alaska would not give the money men pause and they just might not bring to bear the power of the media etc against her if they saw no threat to their core concerns.

From Harding:

“But the recession and bear market are coming to the U.S. too, and may have already arrived.

You can be sure of that because it’s been one world economically for years, and historically global economies and stock markets tended to always move in and out of recessions and bear markets together even before their dependence on each other became so pronounced.

You can be sure of it because central banks seem willing to let it play out this time as in days of old, without intervention.

In the financial crisis of 2007-2008, it took a massive coordinated effort by global central banks to pull the world back from the brink of what would have been a total global financial collapse.

But when their economies began to slow again in 2010, without the world being on the brink of financial Armageddon, major nations outside of the U.S. were content to let the business cycle play out normally, arguing against the U.S. Fed’s decision to jump in with its QE2 stimulus efforts.

Indeed, while the Fed was making that massive monetary easing effort, central banks in Asia, Europe, and South America were tightening monetary policies and raising interest rates to ward off rising inflation, and to tackle the government debt crises created by their 2008-2009 bailout efforts.

The Fed’s QE2 effort pushed a flood of additional dollars into the global financial system, spiking the prices of commodities and paper assets like stocks, but had no lasting effect on even the U.S. economy.

This year, as global economies again slow significantly, central banks outside of the U.S. again seem content, or at least resigned, to letting the business and economic cycle play out, even though it likely means a global recession.

They refrain from saying anything too negative that might make matters worse, but for instance, this week the central bank of Brazil, which actually has one of the world’s strongest and fastest growing economies (but highest rate of inflation), warned that this downturn in global economies will not be as severe as in 2008-2009, but will be more prolonged.

The Financial Times reported Friday that “As the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s forecasts showed on Thursday, the near-term economic outlook for the Group of Seven is dire, yet the mood is one of resignation. . . . Finance ministers across the G7 are searching for ways to explain their lack of likely coordinated action.”

And even in the U.S., the Federal Reserve has been clearly transparent about its reluctance to intervene this time.

With the economy far weaker than it was when the Fed intervened with QE2 last year, Fed Chairman Bernanke continues to say the Fed has some tools it can use if necessary, but will wait and see. In his most recent speeches he cautioned that the Fed is limited in what it can do anyway, and called for Congress to step up to the plate.”

Palin: President is bold to ask for another blank check

Posted by loricalabrese on September 10, 2011

While most Democrats loved Obama’s jobs speech Thursday night, stating that the president was on fire, and brought strength to his speech, Sarah Palin appeared on FOX News’ “America Live” with Megyn Kelly on Friday and offered her own reaction.

“I don’t consider it a plan at all. He had no plan,” Palin said.

Palin condemned Obama for asking for another blank check and going about it in a similar way to how he and Nancy Pelosi shoved Obamacare down Americans’ throats: pass the bill and you’ll find out how we’re going to pay for it.

Bottom line is that the newly formed debt committee will be left to find another $500 billion to pay for this plan and Palin pointed this out, stating that Obama was passing the buck to the committee to do his job for him.

Palin also pointed out that spending more money and growing more government is not the answer to our woes. It’s the private sector that creates jobs and although the bill has been highly touted as bipartisan, the former Governor stressed how that’s been shoved down our throats.

“Some of the things that he talked about, yes, republicans have gotten behind,” Palin said. “And in fact, have proposed it, but the president was disingeniuos when he insisted over and over again that everything in this package has been endorsed by all and everything is going to work and over and over again, kind of shoving down our throats this idea that he is right.”

In addition to the jobs act, Kelly also asked Palin about Rick Perry and the other GOP candidates’ performances at the recent GOP debate

“It surprised me that some of the political street smarts weren’t on display and these candidates weren’t able to pivot from some of the questions into answering questions in terms of what the American voter needs to hear,” Palin said. Palin stressed that the issues we need to be focusing on right now are the debt, deficit spending and how we’re going to get away from those problems.

Of course, Palin couldn’t escape the inevitable question of whether or not she will be entering the race.

“I still believe people will be coming and going … but I don’t know if I’ll be one of those people,” Palin said.

New York Media Adores Palin-Pans New Palin Hate Movie Praises Her Populism

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on September 10, 2011

Following on from The New York Times glowing tribute to Sarah Palin as the revolutionary advocate of the common man against the industrial/political complex The New York Magazine slams the new “Sarah Palin; You Betcha’ hatchet job movie.

This from HOT AIR: with the link to the article praising Palin by Anand Giridharadas

“I seriously have no words to introduce this news story from the New York Times:Let us begin by confessing that, if Sarah Palin surfaced to say something intelligent and wise and fresh about the present American condition, many of us would fail to hear it.That is not how we’re primed to see Ms. Palin. A pugnacious Tea Partyer? Sure. A woman of the people? Yup. A Mama Grizzly? You betcha.But something curious happened when Ms. Palin strode onto the stage last weekend at a Tea Party event in Indianola, Iowa. 


Along with her familiar and predictable swipes at President Barack Obama and the “far left,” she delivered a devastating indictment of the entire U.S. political establishment — left, right and center — and pointed toward a way of transcending the presently unbridgeable political divide.A “curious thing”?  Really?  Sarah Palin has been doing that very thing, almost uninterrupted, for her entire political career. 


 Regardless of what people might think of her chances for political office or her activism, Palin has been an anti-establishment voice from the very beginning.


“Now the “Culture Vulture” section of The New York Magazine-no lover of conservatives reviews Sarah Palin: You Betcha in this point scoring manner;
“The New Anti-Sarah Palin Documentary Won’t Make Many Haters Happy

Mere months after the release of the Sarah Palin hagio-documentary The Undefeated, British provocateur Nick Broomfield (Kurt & Courtney) arrived at the Toronto International Film Festival with a counterscreed, Sarah Palin: You Betcha! The doc premiered Friday and it looks like it may leave Mama-Grizzly-hating liberals sorely unsatisfied: Let’s take a look at Broomfield’s “revelations” and see which, if any, of his punches actually land.•


 Broomfield’s drive to Wasilla through the icy Alaskan wilderness is punctuated by a soundtrack so ludicrous — ominous violins, shrill piano notes — that you’d think he was on the hunt for the Abominable Snowman. Once he arrives, Palin’s local fans turn out to be warm and endearing, not a bunch of raging hicks. Point: Palin!• 


Broomfield successfully tracks down Mercede Johnston, the candid sister of Palin’s former son-in-law-to-be, Levi. Mercede recounts her brother’s harrowing memories of his traumatic, manipulative appearance onstage with the Palins at the Republican National Convention: “He said it was crazy. And they made him…” — here comes the bombshell! — “…shave.” Point: Palin!” 


You can read the entire 7-1 match point to Palin HERE Something very very strange is going on, you can add to this sudden treating of Palin as something more than a backwoods idiot,”quitter”, grifter (the left’s three main automatic responses to anything Palin says or does) CNN’s  reporting on Palin in a genuinely fair and balanced manner, from time to time. 

In fact CNN reporter Don Lemon was absolutely fulsome in his praise of her appearance at the Iowa tea Party rally.Either Palin has now entered a new phase in the media characterisation as a, probably still, “off center” but respected for her insights, commentator-like Jesse Jackson for example, or they feel she is sufficiently neutered and not a danger to the liberals.


It may be that, as some see it on the right, Palin is viewed as a weak candidate against President Obama and by making her seem more acceptable they are, surreptitiously, assisting her campaign, should she run so ensuring , they believe, Obama’s re-election.

It may just be possible on the other hand that a combination of exhaustion of endless Palin bashing, allied to the indisputable common sense of the  remarks by Palin on the economy, whether agreed with or nothas sunk into even the most concrete bunker thick skull of at least some on the left

Iowa Was About Special Moments, Not Mere Politics

Posted by Ron Devito on September 10, 2011

Last Saturday, thousands of Palinistas, of all affiliations descended upon rural Indianola in a mass pilgrimage. We came from New York, Florida, Texas, California, Alaska – all corners of this great nation – to see, hear, commune and meet with Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin – Our Sarah. We stood in the rain waiting for Our Sarah and were not bothered by it. I tried to get the “Official Organize4Palin Wet Tee Shirt Contest” going, but had no takers. I won by forfeiture.

You see, these two days were not just about politics. Of course, Gov. Palin gave an epic speech. She hit all the salient points about our economy. She pointed out the utter lack of leadership by the man who supposed to be a leader. But, when she descended those steps from the stage, the former Alaska Governor became simply Sarah. This weekend was about camaraderie, friendships, humor, special moments – and meeting not merely with Gov. Palin – but with Our Sarah.

We long ago got the memo that the prospect of Gov. Palin announcing her candidacy for the 2012 Presidential election during this rally was highly unlikely. Since Gov. Palin’s intentions were clearly spelled out in public SarahPAC press releases, one would think professional reporters would have gotten that memo too. Besides, Gov. Palin did run the following day, though her run was not announced until after the fact.

They tried to spin the narrative of supporters who walked away “disappointed”. That tale is pure, unadulterated baloney. Not one of the over 2,000 people on that field walked away disappointed in anything Gov. Palin did. She spent more time meeting with her supporters at the rope line than even on her own speech, walking two complete passes. Anyone who wanted to be with her got what he or she wanted. Even my wife, who tacks hard left was astounded when I told her that. We could not think of anyone in recent history who walked two passes on a rope line. “Sarah was going back to her people,” my wife said.

This post is about my special moments, which are but a few of the thousands experienced by all who came to see Former AK Gov. Sarah Palin – Sarah.

Beautiful and Providential Flights

What could beat watching twilight and a huge first quarter moon for the entire duration of the flight out – and passing over the spot where where I met Gov. Palin the first time? On the return flight to Des Moines piloted by two retired fighter pilots, we were given the option to go to Channel 9 and listen in their communications with Air Traffic Control. So, I got a nice refresher in IFR communications. From Chicago back to Newark, great IFR flying and a sweet approach to landing. Thank you, United.

The SarahMobile

A proper SarahMobile is essential for getting around when you take your show on the road, and you haven’t traveled with a charted bus group. Any decent rental car will do, but nothing beats a nice score. I rented this Alamo Jeep Wrangler at the same price as the econo-box I had reserved. Now, that’s a score.

Under the Bus

Whether you are Republican or Democrat, liberal or conservative, love Former AK Gov. Sarah Palin or hate her, you no doubt use the political slang “thrown under the bus.” So, I figured it was time to get a picture – well – under the bus. So, I took a picture under the Central West bus Jelayne Sessler’s TX for Palin group chartered. No, the driver was not there to witness the humorous spectacle; and yes the bus was not running.

I couldn’t fit under the bus. Since Jelayne was the photographer, and I’m more than twice her size by weight, she couldn’t throw me under the bus either. So I did the next best thing – I laid down in front of the bus. Trust me, you don’t want to be thrown under the bus. Yeah, I need to lose a couple of pounds. OK, a little more than a couple.

Speaking of Buses

I hated buses all my life until this one rolled out of the garage…and what a bus it is. This is the Palin family’s mobile home and command center, and it was at rear stage left in Indianola. This bus was bought and paid for with money earned by the sweat of the Palin family’s brows. Its operation is financed by donors who love the Palins and who donate without even being asked. There is one bus I love and adore: this one. You see, what’s beautiful about this bus is not just the visually stunning artwork on it, or the fact that it was imported from Alaska and built right here in the good old US of A. The Palins will never, ever throw any loyal employee, or volunteer under it. They don’t drive that way. This is a bus operated by people whose word is their honor and their sacred bond. No, I did not enter the bus. The open door did not mean “permission granted.”
