Our Politicians Are Selling Off Pieces Of America To Foreign Investors – And Goldman Sachs Is Helping Them Do It

All over the United States, politicians are selling off key pieces of infrastructure to foreign investors and big Wall Street banks like Goldman Sachs are helping them do it.  State and local governments across the country that are drowning in debt and that are desperate for cash are increasingly turning to the “privatization” of public assets as the solution to their problems.  Pieces of infrastructure that taxpayers have already paid for such as highways, water treatment plants, libraries, parking meters, airports and power plants are being auctioned off to the highest bidder.  Most of the time what happens is that the state or local government receives a huge lump sum of cash up front for a long-term lease (usually 75 years or longer) and the foreign investors come in and soak as much revenue out of the piece of infrastructure that they possibly can.  The losers in these deals are almost always the taxpayers.  Pieces of America are literally being auctioned off just to help state and local governments minimize their debt problems for a year or two, but the consequences of these deals will be felt for decades.


Sadly, this trend continues to accelerate.  Just this week, a bill that will allow the state government of Ohio to proceed with plans to lease the Ohio Turnpike to investors was approved.  The state government of Ohio will soon receive a one-time injection of cash and everyone in the area that uses the Ohio Turnpike will end up paying much higher tolls for decades to come.

Highways have also been auctioned off (most of the time to foreign investors) in Indiana, the city of Chicago, Florida, Virginia and Texas.

Amazingly, many politicians continue to insist that selling off pieces of infrastructure that have already been fully paid for by taxpayers is a wonderful thing.  In fact, there are actually some politicians that have the gall to call it a “conservative” thing to do.

For example, Rick Perry has been at the forefront of the effort to “privatize” the highways of Texas.

You would think that the people of Texas would have gotten rid of him by now, but considering the fact that he may be running for the Republican nomination in 2012, he just might be our next president.

What makes the selling off of our infrastructure even worse is that big Wall Street banks such as Goldman Sachs are helping our corrupt politicians do it.

In fact, Wall Street sees a tremendous opportunity in the “distressed assets” of our broke state and local governments.

The fact that Goldman Sachs is making millions auctioning off our public infrastructure should make the blood of all red-blooded Americans boil.  The following is a brief excerpt from a recent article posted on dylanratigan.com….

On Wall Street, setting up and running “Infrastructure Funds” is big business, with over $140 billion run by such banks as Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, and Australian infrastructure specialist Macquarie. Goldman’s 2010 SEC filing should give you some sense of the scope of the campaign. Goldman says it will be involved with “ownership and operation of public services, such as airports, toll roads and shipping ports, as well as power generation facilities, physical commodities and other commodities infrastructure components, both within and outside the United States.” While the bank sees increased opportunity in “distressed assets” (ie. Cities and states gone broke because of the financial crisis), the bank also recognizes “reputational concerns with the manner in which these assets are being operated or held.”

Why does Goldman Sachs always seem to be at the heart of so many things that are wrong with our financial system?

Unfortunately, Goldman Sachs is not the only one seeking to make a quick buck these days.

Foreign investors in particular seem to have an affinity for pieces of U.S. infrastructure, and Wall Street banks such as Goldman Sachs love to help them gobble it up.

The sovereign wealth funds of nations such as Saudi Arabia, China, Kuwait, Libya, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates are eagerly investing in highways, ports, toll roads and even parking meters all across America.

So precisely what is a sovereign wealth fund?

In a previous article I defined it as “a huge mountain of state-owned money that roams about the countryside looking for assets to gobble up.”

The combination of sovereign wealth funds with huge piles of money to burn and state and local governments that are desperate to raise cash has created something of a “perfect storm”.

In an article for Rolling Stone, Matt Taibbi documented some of the key pieces of infrastructure that these sovereign wealth funds have been gobbling up….

A toll highway in Indiana. The Chicago Skyway. A stretch of highway in Florida. Parking meters in Nashville, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, and other cities. A port in Virginia. And a whole bevy of Californian public infrastructure projects, all either already leased or set to be leased for fifty or seventy-five years or more in exchange for one-off lump sum payments of a few billion bucks at best, usually just to help patch a hole or two in a single budget year.

As Taibbi noted, the money that is raised from these long-term leases usually only helps fix budget problems for a year or two, but the pieces of infrastructure that are being auctioned off will be in the hands of foreigners for decades to come.

Sadly, much of our own infrastructure is not even built in this country anymore.

For example, a 2,050 foot bridge that is going to connect San Francisco and Oakland is actually being built in China and is being shipped over to the U.S. piece by piece.

This bridge is being constructed by the China State Construction Engineering Group, and according to an article in The Telegraph, they have been building a whole lot of major projects all over the United States….

CSCEC has already built seven schools in the US, apartment blocks in Washington DC and New York and is in the middle of building a 4,000-room casino in Atlantic City. In New York, it has won contracts to renovate the subway system, build a new metro platform near Yankee stadium, and refurbish the Alexander Hamilton Bridge over the Harlem river.

Massive corporations that are either fully or partially owned by the Chinese government are deeply integrating themselves into the U.S. economy.

For much more on this phenomenon, please see a previous article I authored entitled “The Chinese Government Is Buying Up Economic Assets And Huge Tracts Of Land All Over The United States“.

Sadly, as our state and local governments get even deeper into debt, the amount of infrastructure that is being auctioned off to foreigners will continue to grow.

Most Americans don’t realize how desperate many state and local governments have become.  For example, things have gotten so tight that New York City is now actually rationing toilet paper at Coney Island.

The United States is drowning in debt from coast to coast and pieces of the country are literally being auctioned off.  The looting and the “privatization” are only going to intensify as our state and local government debt problems get even worse.

Perhaps on all future maps of the world we should just put a big “for sale” sign on the United States.

What in the world has happened to this country?


  • bert

    actually, highways were privately owned from the beginning of this country. selling off infrastructure is not the problem. the problem is the electorate which is so possessed of gross and lethal (to this country) ignorance they actually think there’s a difference in the two major parties!! it’s over! voting for the lesser of 2 evils is still voting for evil!!!welcome to amerika.

  • Gary2

    All in the name of privatizing things. They repubes think that by privatizing things it will save money while in reality for the most part it costs more as private business has to make a profit which needlessly drives up costs.

    Then there is the whole thing about the companies who benefit from privatizing give large campaign contributions. Government agencies that get privatized are not able to give campaign monies. I see the whole privatizing thing as a scam period. F-ing repubes make me sick.


    The indians were all peace loving when it appeared that our forefathers were only there to create a small settlement on worthless land hugging the coast. But boy–once our forefathers started to manifest their destiny by grabbing the indians hunting and fishing sites, and by taking their ancestral lands, the indians revealed themselves to be pure savages by trying to defend themselves.

      Recent discoveries finds that “Indians” may not have been the first Americans.

    Through NAFTA the super hiway will start at Laredo,Texas and travel north to Canada. It will be built by a Spanish company and all tolls collected will go to Spain.More information can be found on http://www.Keep Texas Moving.com It may be http://www.KeepTexasMoving.com in either case i see open borders as bad for the US.

    If this keeps up we will be foreigners in our own land because everything else will be foreign owned/controled. And for what, city workers/city politicians salary/bennies/pensions.It ALL goes to the politicians… from us. These TRAITORS have no right to sell this stuff. This is Treason.

    Er, are you saying that America does not “own” large chunks of the outside world?? (Or is that OK because, after all, America is the “exceptional” country and foreigners should be glad America deigns to buy their “crap”?)

    When corporations sell stock on the open market it is called “going public”. When “government” outsources to them, it’s called “privatization”.

    We’re told the three branches of gov’t are legislative, executive and judicial. Actually it is organized crime, corporations and their gov’t.

  • wobbly-1

    So, my taxes paid for a given project, roadway, bridge, etc….then, the government sells said project, roadway, bridge, etc to a foreign investor….and that investor charges me to use the project, roadway, bridge, etc….that I already paid for.

    Here’s a great concept (which is why no government official will consider it…because it is fair and makes sense) how about you tell those investors to set out from day one and fund the NEW PROJECT, ROADWAY, BRIDGE, ETC without my tax dollars paying for it and then they can charge for it and I can decide if I want to pay to use it. I ALREADY PAID FOR THE EXISTING ONES SO WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR THEM AGAIN?

    ….I’m just saying.

      These dumb ass politicians have sooo many pet projects that they want funded (or want their names put on a building or written up in books), that they raise taxes and when they don’t get enough money from that, then they get the brillant (stupid) idea-“hey, lets sell off our highways, airports, parking meters, garbage pickup, taxi service, fire department to the highest foreign bidder!”
      And how much money in kick-backs, pay-offs and bribes do they get? And they always seem to end up having their wives, kids, brother ending up working for these foreign firms!
      These politicians have no idea how to run a business or even worse a city. I believe most of these politicians are mentally unstable and are bipolar.
      Another thing I don’t like about these politicians is how they pride themselves on how many restrictive laws they can pass on citizens and remove laws on corporations-like they have rights. Doesn’t it bug you when you hear that GE made 12 billion in PROFIT and paid no income taxes! And there are many other billion dollar corporations that also didn’t pay any income taxes!
      The politicians want the poor and the middle class to pay all of the needed taxes.
      And I read that China and Saudi Arabia are the biggest buyers of USA farmland and USA ranchlands! They want to buy up America so they can then tskeover America, control and rule America and enslave all Americans! Remember that in China the state owns you, you are their slave to do whatever they want with you!

    I agree with bert – a lot of the public works being sold off should never have been undertaken by the public in the first place. Look up “the tragedy of the commons” and you’ll gain a better understanding of why private ownership makes sense. The private owners of roads must keep the usage fees reasonable or people will find or build alternate routes.

      Okay, if the politicians want to sell off public property, then sell it to the highest American owned company! No foreign owned or foreign governments!
      And they must provide jobs only to Americans, no foreign brought in workers or illegals!
      Or else they can’t buy the property! Or lease it.

  • Dave Mowers

    I read some of the proposals for selling off turnpike’s and understand that there are two sides to the deal;

    1: Owning the infrastructure and charging for its’ use

    2: Guarantee’s to the State Government’s that it will be maintained so a service side is implied whereby you will pay more money every year for continued maintenance and upgrades.

    It is the second part that should get you up in arms as the State’s proposing and doing these deals will continue to take your property taxes while not having any costs for infrastructure and giving their buddies tax breaks and subsidies to relocate companies to those States. Your tax burden will increase as they also increase the price of utilizing tax-payer funded/built highways. This is fraud, you are being ripped off and told it is necessary to save State’s budgets.

    “A Nightmare for Bedtime….”

    In my nightmare, I can see a day in the future when TPTB conclude an agreement with China, involving massive Chinese “city-building” in HUNDREDS of locales in the US, and bring in 60 or 70 million Han colonists — to start — to settle these “industrial enterprise zones,” from which Americans will have been expelled to make room. These enclaves will operate under Chinese law and be defended by the People’s Liberation Army.

    The regime in DC will then tout this construction as “America’s Industrial Rebirth” and the public will witness it being cheered on by people like Greenspan, Bernanke, Schumer, Feinstein, Boxer, Geithner, Blankfein, Rubin, et al., who will make speeches and trumpet the instant rise in the Jones Average that will have been the immediate result of this sell off as proof that it is “good” for America.

    In my nightmare, I can see Sen. Charles Schumer in particular (perhaps as a de facto President or DHS chief at some date in the near future), going on television and, with his own trademark half-sneer, half-snarl, hatefully condemning those Americans who — by recognizing this invasion for what it actually IS, and physically RESISTING it — as “scum” and “racists” and “terrorists” and “xenophobes” deserving of a true Old Testament style of eradication.

    Schumer will then order a 24 hour deadline for the surrender or all privately held firearms on pain of drum head court martial and summary execution. DHS will then be ordered to destroy not only active resistors (let’s call their organization the “American National Resistance Army”), but all POTENTIAL resistors, according to a secret protocol in the agreement with China.

    This anti-partisan war will be applauded by CNN, FOX, MSNBC, AIPAC (for Israel will have long since discarded the US as its underwriter in favor of China), the Millenialist Southern Evangelicals (because of the last point) and, of course, the regime in Beijing.

    After all, it’s happened before, AND with the support of these very same people — and the result was the establishment of “Aztlan” in our Southwestern states. They WILL go for endgame, this time. Time is short.

      hey alfred e. nueman, loved the 1968 issue of mad magazine that included a spoof of rosemary’s baby. funniest ending ever!! see if you can check it out somewhere. on a lighter note…enjoy the new security checks coming to the airports and then eventually as you try to get on the interstate because of this put up job of human bombs…LOL…this country is FINISHED!! and you people still think there’s a difference in the 2 major parties!!

  • The Banksters have had their eyes on what they could pick up cheap for a while now. I look for the Statue of Liberty to be sold along with mount Rushmore and the Yosemite Park.
    After all it’s just business, noting personal.

    The psychopaths are in charge, and we still vote and expect change. Einstein said ” insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a change in results”. Voting changes nothing “if voting changed anything it would become illegal over night”.

    Watch the loss of soverignty in Greece as the world cartel of criminal trash banksters plunder Greece. This is all part of the banksters’ grand plan to own and run the world. This same approach will be applied to America. Citizens of America MUST be ready to resist this loss of American soverignty

      Do not send your children to public schools! (who knows, maybe they are next on the politicians list to sell/lease to foreign companies or to foreign governments!)
      Home school all your kids!

    the US is doing the same thing in countries like Egypt. Mubarak was ousted because of the kerry,McCain, liberman bill S.618 and replaced with a globalist, Mohamed El Baradei, a puppet of the US. George Soros gave the funding for drafting the new constitution for Egypt. Does anyone really believe we are doing these thing in the middle east for democracy? It get better. On june 25-2011 John kerry and John Mccain led a delegation to Egypt and Tunisia to promote private sector growth. Showing his true constituensy,included was a collection of corporate parasites from GE,boeing,Coco-Cola,Bechtel,Exxon Mobile,Marroit and Dow who surveyed cario like conquering despots.The very corporations that funded the think-tanks and media organizations that crafted and sold the entirely engineered Arab Spring hoax to the world, settled in Egypt to strip its land clean. This is a continuance of US Hegemony in the middle east.

    Most if not all of our monetary issues started with the Federal Reserve, which is not Federal and there are definitely no reserves. It’s a cartel of foreign banks. Since 1980 every single taxpayer dollar(income taxes are illegal by the way)goes to pay interest (to the foreign Federal Reserve bank) on the’debt.’ That means no taxpayer money has funded anything in over 30 years!!! See Ronald Regan’s Grace Commission Report to see for yourself. And these bailouts, what a joke!!!They have bailed out FOREIGN banks with our bail out money and refused to tell Congress what banks the money went to. REPEAL THE FEDERAL RESERVE ACT!!!
    Congress and can and should. I agree with those who see no difference in the 2 parties. Our gov’t has been bought out by corporations, and sold the American people down the river a LONG time ago. Look up ‘lawful money’ on Investopedia. Really quite interesting. Since 1933 there has been no lawful money in this country.

  • samUwell

    in economic terms, this is whats called, Neoliberalism and it is very common 2nd and 3rd world countries.

    many of us have been predicting this will happen in the USA for some time now. city and states are now loaded in debt through unsustainable pensions and they need to pay for these promised debts. they cant tax the people anymore because we are already taxed or fee to death so they sell off public owned property to the banks to pay for their obligations.

  • There are 2 options before America

    1. US Visa system/Outsourcing should be aligned to Global socioeconomic conditions viz Caste system in India http://goo.gl/w8QpF and Human Rights in China http://goo.gl/8wiUq
    2. Talk to Chindia Govt and create exclusive H1B type visas for Americans viz no income tax, special protection, free public transport etc.

    • There is a better option. We should setup a Tax Table which discloses on the Tax Form Land Ownership of those whom own more than specified amounts which carry a different tax table each and ultimately the tax burden shifts from those whom do not have land to those that are land gluts and to extend this further the land gluts must allow certain unalienable rights that citizens of the United States of America certainly possess which is also a guarantee within the US Constitution that citizens shall not be abused having been provided these rights. Here is a example…


      The ‘Fair Tax’ Is A Government Appropriation Fee To Reserve The Rights Of All Citizens Of The United States Of America Protecting Them From Land Glut Ownership That Has Gotten Out Of Control In America To The Point That Land Is Being Used To Allow Criminals To Become Owners Themselves Of Cities, Counties, And Large Portions Of States. If There Were No Reserved Right For Citizens One Day They Must Pay The Toll To Criminals For Having Passed Through Such Glut Controlled Lands Which Have Increased Pricing For Everything Being Sold Or Handled Within That Land Area. In Some Instances These Self Managed Business Operations Have Created Certain Privileges Citizens Must Adhere To While Visiting Among A Few Are Parking Privileges, Gasoline Station Access, Restaurant Access, Vehicle Acquisition Even If A Citizen Is Using The Vehicle Already Or Planning To, Plus Voting Requirements Which Eliminate Those Whom Do Not Vote From Access To Privileges.

      Acrage Must Be Defined On The Tax Form
      There Is No Deduction Allowed On Land From Other Tax Owed
      There Is No Depreciation On Land Tax With Exception To Damage Done By Natural Disaster (Including: Buildings, Trees, Other Planted Crops; or Acts Of War Against Land Property Owners.

      Americans Beware Of The Land Gluts In Your State, They May Mean Well But They Have Plans That Eliminate All Citizen Access And Most Citizens Have Only Family Planning Which Do Not Supercede Other Family Privileges Without Their Consent And Formal Agreement. Land Gluts Sit On Land For Many Years And Never Offer One Reason Why No One Can Own A Small Portion Of The Land And Drive Prices Up Higher & Higher On Other Commodities Esp. Other Land. The Establishment Of Aerial Portals For Flying Vehicles Has Become A Citizens Right To Own And Manage Their Own Vehicle As They Are Qualified. Land Gluts Will Attempt To Take More Land To Control Access To Important Features Of The State Purposefully For Profit And None Of The Specified Land Will Be Set Aside For Emergency Or Other Important Assets All Citizens Are Guaranteed By The United States Constitution. In Some Cases Threats Of A Citizen Can & Will Result In The Death Of The Citizen Or Their Associates, This Is Not Tolerated By Our Laws. Other Areas Of Concern Involve Certain Religious Rights That Citizens Claim And It Is Their Inherited Right To Be Allowed Their Privileges, Or It Is A Guaranteed Right Of The United States Of America.

      This is the Land Tax Scale:
      Land Owners that own 100 acres (additional tax up to 250 acres)
      Land Owners that own 250 acres (additional tax up to 500 acres)
      Land Owners that own 500 acres (additional tax up to 1,000 acres)
      Land Owners that own 1,000 acres (additional tax on all acres to infinity)

      According To This Scale Land Of Certain Acrage Has Normal Tax Applied Up To That Amount Of Land And If It Exceeds The Next Total Its Tax Rating Is Increased. Only By Proclamation Can Land Be Utilized In A Joint Effort Due To Excessive Traffic Conjestion Caused In Other Portions Of Land. Proclamation Consists Of Declaring To The General Public In All Areas Of Concern That A Specified Land Mass Will Be Utilized For Some Event. All Such Events Are Taxable If The Condition Of Which Items Being Sold Or Traded For Monetary Gain Which Is Termed As Profiteering. All Proceeds Of Such Sales And Trades Will Have To Be Itemized And Each Bearing A Receipt Of Acceptance Whether Paid For In Cash Or Credit Or Direct Trade. We Are Formulating A Service Against Land Glutany, This Is Not Taxing The People Whom Do Not Fit Into The Categorical Land Tax Scale Above.


      How is it that America is a shadow governed nation that requires each and every citizen to buy a new electric automobile from dealers that have been supplied or that can be supplied with the vehicle consumer’s must purchase from them?

      In America citizens have the right to create FOUNDATION. That is the right of all citizens regardless if they are employed or not it is their right to choose what vehicle they wish to own and how that vehicle is to be mechanized and functioning, in respect to other laws protecting the rights of asll other citizens. There is no doubt in my mind that they have this right to create Foundation. My idea sprang into a Project/Plan for a Foundation that would create all of the electrical parts necessary to convert a consumer’s vehicle to be a electric car without them having to buy from makers that have over priced consumer’s ability to pay. Some think that consumer’s all should go get a loan which is the same as saying they need to get a Mortage on their home or Re-Mortgage their existing home to make improvements or to relocate to another home. American banks love to deal with consumer Mortgages and Auto Loans. My Project/Plan however eliminates banks totally, this frees up the credit available to consumer’s for other necessities. It is something like a “Cap, Cut, and Balance” at one time each year for consumer’s to have their own vehicle converted to electric and it ultimately will conserve energy use of fossil fuels. Another portion of this Foundation Plan is Energy Creation via Solar Collection and Wind Turbine operations which will share the total output with the power grid daily for the purpose that those whom do agree to convert their vehicle will receive free electricity to recharge their vehicle (another Non-Credit Card necessity). Yet another aspect of The Foundation is to produce In-Ground Recharge Units that will operate via telephone access with a central computing facility to identify the location of the consumer’s vehcile that needs recharging and to next identify the vehicle once it is connected to the power to schedule the recharge according to what electricity is necessary for a full charge. This In-Ground Unit Is Not Accessible Until A Consumer That Has Converted Their Vehicle Via The Foundation Has Identified Where That Unit Is Via Phone Contact So That Unit Can Be Turned On Electronically And Its Access Door Opens. The reasoning in this is to not create above ground units that become obsticles for natural disasters likened to hurricanes and tornadoes, a flood will have no affect on the unit (waterproof & is not supplied with dangerous voltage). This method decreases Insurance Expenses for the Foundation & any location that allows The Foundation To Install Units for consumer access. While these portions of The Foundation seem many, another portion which is perhaps the most important portion is the contact of The Foundation to Consumer’s via Conversion Facilities within cities, counties, and states. A Conversion Facility is where there are job availabilities as well as those jobs in manufacturing where The Foundation establishes its operations known as a factory, I planned for Four Factories for this Project. The COnversion Facility is the location a Consumer takes their vehicle where it is sized up to what it must have installed and everything that is not necessary is removed from the vehicle and what is removed becomes property of The Foundation. This is what gives the Foundation its equity to complete the task and continue the service to Consumer’s that convert their vehicle. The overall cost is expectant at $1,000 per year which cover the cost for the warranty of everything added to the Consumer’s vehicle and testing done on the vehicle. The jobs are first come first serve and have no education requirements but it is appreciated that expectant employees be at least High School Graduates perhaps Some College or Trade School Credentials. For employment at the Factory it is advisable that most expectant employees have at least one year of Trade School or some College to learn to work with machinery. There are medical exclusions which would apply to employment, esp blindness, sight in one eye, diseased endangerment. These factors are assertained by medical professionals of the State in which those people reside, it is just a physical exam for Insurance Purposes so that no one causes injury to themselves or others. The additional portion is about how the States can cooperate with The Foundation and operate their own Stae Conversion Facility for their own State Vehicles, The Foundation will guarantee a State privileges of all necessary items required for every vehicle that they provide the removed items from. A State can also contribute other materials which are non-automotive to be included with the materials which The Foundation accesses during the infinite course of operations in America which can be smelted down to ignots and recycled appropriately to the necessary manufacturing portion in making all items and sold as scrap in bulk if necessary to meet a State Goal it might wish to have for bridges or other highway building projects. The door is open to small business & entrepreneurship that would cooperate with Consumer’s in providing other needs they desire for their vehicle, this serving as a blueprint for every state. Like I said all this and more is only a cost factor of $1,000 per vehcile warranty and there are no pink slips or Credit Charges allowed, cash only, no checks. Bring in the vehicle and the money and get your vehicle converted right now. Don’t cause a traffic jam it is bad for other businesses, always keep your car charged, don’t become a stranded motorist that The Foundation has to track down everyday to provide you with electric power. What we want to aim for is replaceable power packs that can be brought to a stranded motorist and be provisioned by Conversion Facilities, it requires special vehicle ownership to qualify. If I left anything out on this it is a bit more technical and enlarged description that can be found on other sites I have been maintaining throughout these three years I am Charles Jones nicknamed Jonalist as on Twitter & Facebook and the founder of “The Electric Vehicle Free Conversion Foundation”. I am disabled, I live at home with my disabled parents, I own a couple vehicles I would convert at some time one to Natural Gas cause it is a big family car and the other to electric because it is a small car. I do not have money myself because of health reasons to launch this Foundation. I have given thought to beginning a Lotto which I would … GIVE AWAY THE FIRST VEHICLE CONVERTED WITH IS A DIAMANTE MITSUBISHI LS 1992 ORIGINAL OR MY HONDA CIVIC CRX 1991 OR A MODEL YET OBTAINED. THE PROCEEDS OF THE LOTTERY WOULD GO TOWARDS BEGINNING THE FOUNDATION, ITS FACTORIES, JOB CREATION, AND CONVERSION FACILITY OPERATIONS. Donations are accepted directly, avoid PAYPAL donations because PayPal charges $2.50 for each $100.00 donated. The Foundation is soon to open a bank account at Chase Banking so you might find that more appropriate, currently we manage our options at Wells Fargo which took over Wachovia Bank. Eric Cantor, Majority Leader of the House of Representatives has been endorsing a printed duplication of a plan which is called CAP, CUT, and BALANCE and connecting it as much as possible to job creation and fitting small business & entrepreneurship into it as alternative work suggestion. He has not endorsed nor has he read much about “The Electric Vehicle Free Conversion Foundation” which began here http://bit.ly/dzzOd3 and moved onto http://evfcf.mysite.com/ and here http://jonalist-weebly.weebly.com/ and I am on Twitter “Jonalist” and Facebook I am “Michael Jones” or otherwise “Jonalist”. Eric Cantor needs a plan, all he has right now is a trendish brochure, something of a Christmas Card without the envelope or Christmas Tree.

  • Unknown Agents Mr. George Anthony held secretive data about because he himself was not allowed to know everything so he cannot ever mention because he is a lower superiority class of Security Professional. Else the blame would have swayed toward whom actually was covering up why Caylee Anthony was dead and how she died and why she had to be placed in the woods. There’s a ton of money in Investigative work, agents dispose of money like it has a disease on it having been handled by Anna Nicole drug dealers or the East Coast Mobsters, getting in on some of that money would turn any branch of retired officers towards investigative work and even secret agent coverups.

    Overcharging for services not being received as it seems is the issue for CNN over that Orlando Florida case on Casey Anthony now free because the State failed to show adequate evidence that actually places her in the crime act and that was a waste of three years by Nancy Grace whom is a Basher of Casey Anthony and has been now for three years going on four because she always upheld Casey to be a murderer, then Florida endorsed the Caylee Law which says little that a parent could commit the crime outside the city and not report it inside the city or state for that matter and the Caylee Law accomplishes nothing. In fact the Caylee Law is becoming a trend and that will drive up city tax faster than state tax for all cities that wish to found it, is the public really sane in demanding a Caylee Law in their city/county/state?

    Have you read Cap, Cut & Balance Act of 2011 – which the @GOPLeader Eric Cantor is rushing to define #CutCapBalance found on Twitter? One provision to save money is to eliminate the daily printing of the Congressional Record & Federal Register. He could have went a step further and included MICROFICHE but he is also saying Internet publication of the Congressional Record & Federal Register stoppage and that is where I am opposed because Internet allows software makers to endorse other media types and allow the viewing and reading of documents on many devices. Why don’t Cantor just say No More Phone access for the Congressional Record & Federal Register or No More Phones Period now that would save a trillion & more very fast, he also could have stated that Cable Television was over charging for services not being received. CNN might consider obtaining a new type license to continue haggling down the road on Casey Anthony as she obtains a new life if CNN has that much gall to keep on screwing over cable TV viewers, Government might consider levying a fine against their illicit opinionated coverage.

  • “The single most important thing any human being can do, anywhere in the world, right now, today – is BUY SILVER. EVEN IF ONLY ONE OUNCE, OR TWO. BUY AS MUCH AS YOU CAN AFFORD. IF 100 Million human beings buy one ounce of silver – the central banker parasites are FINISHED. And, humanity can go back to living as God intended them to live – in FREEDOM.

    “AVOID SHOPPING AS ‘RETAIL THERAPY’ (Instead, jog, meditate, read, or find some other solution).

    PURCHASE AT CONSIGNMENT AND THRIFT STORES –where everything is recycled.
    Write letters telling Monsanto, De Beers, ExxonMobil, Adidas, Ford, GE, Coca-Cola, WALMART, and other labor exploiters and environment destroyers why you REFUSE TO PURCHASE FROM THEM.
    DOWNSIZE (your car, home, wardrobe) – everything in your life (and don’t buy what you don’t need)

  • Naming Names: Your Real Government (When dark deeds unfold, point the finger in this direction).
    by Tony Cartalucci

    The Real Revolution
    “Boycott the globalists, cut off their support, undermine their system, and they lose their ability to commit these atrocities. That will be a real revolution and it can start today. Not burning cities and masked rebels waving flags, but communities no longer dependent and fueling a corrupt system we all know must come to an end.”

    This is all good as far as, that the capitalist model is working it’s cycle. Maybe if more people understood that equation, they wouldnt be surprised, no help from drone media. This country is 2/3 owned by foreign nationals. Your cities, bridges, tolls, etc. The only hitch is previous public and governmental per-sued practices, like that jack in the box, noble prize winner, Friedman. The hitch is these models is that there based political science not real world science. Anyone with an education knows that the scientific process has very few holes, heck look around at tech. advancement. Political science that forms our monetary policies do not include the main factor that the actual science process factor in. That is the lack of certainty in the natural world. This is a crucial factor in determining the validity of a hypothesis. One must always account for nature, or random events. Monetary policy world round does not. So if your surprised about current events, or market trends, pick up a history book and know that this was all gonna happen and many people knew that. For a very long time.
