NEGATIVE Lending Rates? What happen is going on?

By Reginald Kaigler (DEMCAD)

Are they serious? According to market Watch, central banks are considering a negative deposit rate. Basically, the banks store their money in central banks such as the Federal Reserve and European Central Bank and get pay an interest rate. At least, that's the way it works now. With a negative rate, the banks would have to pay to park money in the central banks. 

"The European Central Bank is reportedly considering such a move, and officials at the Federal Reserve keep bringing up the idea.... That means banks would have to pay the ECB to lend to it overnight, an unprecedented move for the bank..."
 So the rate for the European Central Bank would go from 0.1% to NEGATIVE 0.1%. What the hell is going on in the financial markets?

Census Cooked Job Numbers to Help Obama Win Election?

By Reginald Kaigler (DEMCAD)

Remember when the unemployment rate dropped sharply in August of 2012? He really helped the Obama campaign distract the voters from the awful economic reality. There was no economic recovery. And now The NY Post is reporting that government has been actively falsifying the unemployment numbers. Gee, you think?

"Just two years before the presidential election, the Census Bureau had caught an employee fabricating data that went into the unemployment report, which is one of the most closely watched measures of the economy. And a knowledgeable source says the deception went beyond that one employee — that it escalated at the time President Obama was seeking reelection in 2012 and continues today."

John Crudele NY Post.

The New York Post lost a lot of credibility with me when they reported a lot of false information after the Boston bombing. However, they are now claiming that the Census actually produced fake jobs reports during 2012 to help Obama win re-election. They're claiming that employees conducted fake interviews and lied about the data.

If this can be verified by another news outlet, this will be one hell of a scandal.

George Zimmerman Charged With Aggravated Assault of Girlfriend! Another Alleged Gun Threat!

By Reginald Kaigler (DEMCAD)

It's November 18th, 2013 and George Zimmerman is in trouble again. This time, he has been arrested for allegedly threatening his girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, was a shotgun.

Let's see, this is the third time George Zimmerman has been accused of domestic violence. This is the second time a woman has claimed he threatened her with a gun. There was an incident in 2005 with his fiance, the alleged pistol threat to his estranged wife this year (charges dropped) and now this allegedly shotgun threat with his girlfriend. Not to mention the fight with the cops in 2005. He was able to take a class to reduce the “resisting officer with violence" charge. That was the year his fiance filed a restraining order siting domestic violence. I'm not even going to go into details about his cousin accusing him of molesting her.

What's important is that there is a clear pattern. This guy has far too many red flags.

Now does his criminal history and charges mean that he is guilty of murder? No.

I think it is fascinating how George Zimmerman's supporters could bash a teenager with no criminal history, while upholding George Zimmerman as a hero when he had such a questionable story and a controversial past.

And even now, many people claim that he was a hero for shooting Trayvon Martin.

Here's my question: How many red flags does it take to wake people up to the fact that this asshole is unstable. He's becoming the media's poster boy for conceal carry and the Stand Your Ground laws.

Race was always a big undertone in the media's coverage, but I was always concerned about how this character would be used to paint conceal carry permit holders as crazies.

Frankly, I think it's embarrassing that so many people in the gun community are continuing to support him. I think the gun community would have been wise to distance themselves from this man.

With that said, I wonder if these charges have changed some people's view of George Zimmerman? After all, they are only charges and he seems to be good at getting charges dropped and sentences reduced.

And it's possible that all three women were lying. Every defendant is innocent until proven guilty.

The question is do you think George Zimmerman is unstable?

House Republicans to Impeach Eric Holder?!

By Reginald Kaigler (DEMCAD)

Finally, the House Republicans are going to at least attempt to impeach Attorney General Eric Holder. This man has continued to violate federal law. I've spoken repeatedly about his involvement and coverup in ATF gun-running disaster "Operation Fast and Furious" that lead to 2,000 illegal guns flooding the streets of Mexico. Many of these guns were used by criminals to kill innocent people.

This man should have been fired years ago.

Enrollment in Obamacare is a Complete Failure!

By Reginald Kaigler (DEMCAD)


According to the Health and Human Services Department, Obamacare enrollment stands at a mere 106,185. And it gets worse. Most of these plans are state run programs.

"The actual number of those who have selected plans through the glitch-ridden federally run marketplace is about one-fourth of that, or 26,794, HHS figures show."

 The federal government expected 500,000 new members for the first month, but obviously the real numbers are no where near the expectations. Interestingly enough, 396,000 people have been deterred to Medicare.

Typhoon Haiyan! Obamacare!

By Reginald Kaigler (DEMCAD)


Obamacare When if the U.S. government created a healthcare program and no one should up? Well, we will soon find out very soon. Here's how bad the situation is at this point. The U.S. government expected 1.4 million enrollees for the year 2014. So far, in 12 states where the system is running, only 49,100 people have signed up. That's less than 3%. The percentage is 11% in Vermont, but only 2% in New York. But here's the real issue. It doesn't matter. The problem is that there will not be enough young healthy people enrolling into the system to pay for the new sick people. Premiums will rise and the middle class will take a huge hit. They will have less money and spend less. This will impact retail and the entire economy.

 Typhoon Haiyan 

One of the worst natural disasters in history has left more than 10,000 people dead as bodies are piling up in the streets of Philippine cities. With winds traveling around 235 miles per hour, Typhoon Haiyan has created a devastating amount of destruction. The government suspects that at least 10,000 people may have lost their lives in the city of Tacloban, Leyte. The number is likely to grow as many more bodies are discovered in the wreckage across the city. Let me just say that I hope the government gets as much help from the international community as it needs. But as always, we can learn from this situation.

Right now, people are desperately looking for food and water in the affected area. I understand that many of you will donate money and supplies to help the victims. And if it reaches the people in the Philippines, that would be great. However, don't  forget that this could happen to us. Please take time to seriously assess what your household may need in an emergency.
