My Patriot Supply
Doom and Bloom
The world has no shortage of doom-saying economists ready to advise investors to stock up on gold against a coming financial catastrophe. Until recently, none of them could claim to be a former Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board.
On Wednesday, though, as the Federal Open Market Committee prepared to announce the end of the years-long asset purchase program known as Quantitative Easing, Alan Greenspan, the near-legendary Fed chair whose every utterance used to be parsed by market watchers, spoke before the Council on Foreign Relations and advised listeners that under current conditions, gold is probably a good investment.

That nurse in Maine sure does love the spotlight.
After Kacie Hickox returned from Sierra Leone, where she was treating Ebola patients, she was outraged when she was put in isolation by the state of New Jersey. After railing about her civil rights, she was then transferred to her home in Maine, where she was asked to remain home for the remainder of the 21 day incubation period.
Well, you can’t tell Kacie Hickox what to do. No sir. She knows her rights. Continue reading
NSA Drone Insects are being used in Long beach and Carson, California and have been seen in swarms both small and large. My friend Jack invited me to stay at his house and to go walking with him late at night with his dog as guide. Lady is an English Hunting Cocker/Terrier mix and is obedience trained. Jack said the dogs keen interest in sent trails and pointing at places with strong scents is a natural trait that he rewarded with praise and treats when the dog was young.
Jack walked me to a freeway underpass and showed me some cockroaches that do not run away but simply stared the dog down and both of us down. Based on looks, I still cannot get past feeling that they are just big roaches from the port of Long Beach. Jack handed me the leash and said the dog had found the roaches. Lady started tugging on the leash and off we went. The street names I remember were Peach, Pine, Long Beach Blvd and Cedar. We came to an “Airgas Company* industrial site that smelled like a gas leak and like high-stench compost. Continue reading

Barack Obama uses anyone or anything to avoid revealing any document which would supposedly help prove he was eligible to seek the Presidency of America. Why he did this? He knew disclosure would reveal a deception beyond belief. He deliberately fought against producing a valid “Certificate of Live Birth” from Hawaii which should have confirmed he was born there and was a natural-born American citizen. He could have brought a divided Nation together. Instead, he chose lying, falsifying documents (including an ineligible “Certification of Live Birth” which he, a former Constitutional teacher, knew was an ineligible document for a presidential aspirant. The deception had begun! Continue reading
A teacher asked her 6th grade class how many of them were fans of Big Government.
Not really knowing what a Big Government fan is, but wanting to be liked by the teacher, all the kids raised their hands except for Little TJ.
The teacher asked Little TJ why he has decided to be different…again.
Little TJ said, “Because I’m not a fan of Big Government.” Continue reading
WICHITA, Kan. — Emergency crews are on scene of a plane crash at Mid-Continent Airport.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Tony Molinaro says a twin-engine Beechcraft King Air 200 reported losing engine power just after takeoff around 9:50 a.m. Thursday.
Molinaro says the plane crashed into a building on airport property while attempting to return to the runway. The plane reportedly hit the north building of FlightSafety International Cessna pilot’s center. Continue reading
The American Red Cross is a corporate shell devouring millions of dollars in donations.
It not only fails to provide assistance to disaster victims but gets in the way of efforts by smaller, more efficient emergency relief efforts.
A joint investigation conducted by ProPublica and NPR discovered the Red Cross is not interested in its declared mission of “preventing and relieving suffering.” Instead, the organization diverts “assets for public relations purposes” and its distribution of relief supplies, according to one internal report, is “politically driven.” Continue reading
Something is wrong in the financial system. Huge profits are made but when things go wrong governments and central banks are expected to step in. The financial sector operates at the expense of the real economy. Real wages in the United States have not risen for decades but the US financial sector comprised only 10% of total non-farm business profits in 1947, but grew to 50% by 2010 . Interest on money has contributed to this development.
Compound interest is infinite in the long run and this can become a problem if the number of money units is limited. More importantly, interest is a reward for risk but interest on money also increases risk and contributes to financial instability by pressing the hardest on the weakest borrowers as they have to pay the highest interest rates. The issue here is leverage as well as trying to extract a fixed income stream out of a fluctuating income stream. Continue reading
The union representing Chicago’s rank-and-file police officers has filed an injunction against the city and police department, asking a judge to halt the city from turning over records of police misconduct to the Sun-Times and Chicago Tribune until the records can be reviewed.
The motion for injunctive relief was filed Tuesday in Cook County Circuit Court.
On Thursday, the city notified the Fraternal Order of Police that lists “‘containing information related to complaints lodged against officers’ covering the time period between January 1, 1967 to the present” would be released to reporters from the two newspapers on Oct. 31, according to the filing.

Ebola quarantine nurse’s ties to CDC scrubbed from web; was it a staged op to invoke opposition to quarantines?
Kaci Hickox, the nurse who was quarantined in New Jersey over her high risk status as a possible Ebola carrier, has ties to the CDC which have been deliberately hidden by the mainstream media.
Right now, a war is waging between states like New Jersey, New York and Illinois — which have all decided to quarantine travelers at high risk of Ebola infections — and the federal government which is adamantly opposed to border security, medical quarantines and travel bans. Continue reading
As a video showing a Miami Beach police officer cursing out a young man during an apparent traffic stop makes the rounds on social media, the police department is saying it has opened an internal affairs investigation.
In the 1:02 clip posted Monday on YouTube, Officer Kenneth MacLeod and Albert Valdes appear to be at the end of a traffic stop. Valdes, who posted the video, says in the video’s summary that he’d been stopped and ticketed for having the license plate on his motorcycle folded up and flipped. Continue reading
Holder noted that rate of violent crime reported to the FBI in 2012 was about half the rate reported in 1993. He said the rate of incarceration in the U.S. has dropped more than 8 percent since President Obama took office, “the very first time these two critical markers have declined together in more than 40 years.” (The U.S. prisoner total increased last year, but Holder cited the incarceration rate, relating prisoner numbers to the population.)

The CIA recently signed a $600 million deal with Amazon, allegedly for the use of their cloud computing technology. The large contract has some users concerned about their privacy, because many of them feel that being on the same cloud as the CIA puts their information at risk.
Very few details of this deal have been made public, but concerned Amazon Cloud users want answers, and want the company to promise that they will not share its user’s information with the CIA. Continue reading
The Philadelphia Veterans Affairs office announced Wednesday that it would hold a Halloween parade on Friday for children of VA employees, but warned employees not to hand out any candy or sweets to the kids.
Instead, the VA said the day care center in the office has “joined First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move Program,” which means the kids should be given things other than candy. Continue reading
These are the prosecutors of the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York.
The agency, the United States attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York, was celebrating its 225th birthday, so naturally its alumni had decided to hold a party.
One thing soon became apparent: This was no ordinary reunion.
While many consider singling people out for Ebola quarantine a rights violation, singling them out for punishment for alluding to Islamic terrorism is a different story — at least in Great Britain. And 75-year-old retired hairdresser Paul Griffith learned this the hard way at that nation’s Stansted airport while traveling to Malaga, Spain, for a weeklong vacation earlier this year.
