Why Governments (Corporations) Whine so much, What They Aren’t Telling Us, and How to Look It Up . . . .

with one comment


Individuals believe that “the budget” and “governments” are one. This is false“*
How does one tell the American people that governments are stealing from them? They will not believe it. They believe the government and the elected officials. Only a nut would attempt to demonstrate that politicians are not completely honest. Well, I am that nut and I have the qualifications to prove that governments are stealing from them.”  *
(from a site put together by a retired USAF and “Former: Auditor/Commander, Air Force Audit Agency Federal Accountant,”).  Others are also reporting this, such as Catherine Austin Fitts, formerly FHA.  It just happens to be true! And needs to be seen in this light:

Do you have any idea what it’s like to have been on welfare, got off, then listen to the talking heads on TV? [Expired Link, see “2016 updates” some paragraphs, in fact an entire discussion, below]

This background color inside the maroon borders = 2016 updates. In April, 2016, I am completing the Blog’s “Table of Contents,” linking to posts retroactively from 9/24/2012 back to its beginning in 2009.  I still remember writing most of these posts and where my head was at, shortly after discovering the existence of “CAFRs” and then listening more critically to public debates about what makes people poor, and the progressive/conservative versions of what’s good or bad about welfare reform…Along the way, reviewing some posts, I sometimes update broken links, clear up some tables or margins, and may even add some identifying post tags, or an excerpt.


[[2016 comment: I believe that this Tavis Smiley Interview with Peter Edelman, “The anti-poverty advocate discusses his text, So Rich, So Poor.” 24:40 |Episode].  I do not have a transcript]] may have been one of the interviews I was referring to.  Several links to his promotion of the book exist on-line.  I started to update with replacement info and links, but this turned into a new page, or post.  Will (hopefully) link to that here if it’s published — or it’ll be on the updated table of contents!]]

(Both of whose corporations and agenda I’ve looked at:  Robert Rector of Heritage, and Peter Edelman, Professor of Law at Georgetown ) playing Us versus Them on TV, over welfare reform?  (While Mr. Edelman is also selling his book).

This deserves a separate post — but FYI, Welfare reform was targeted against single black mothers (too fertile, and needed a kick in the behind to get to work, plus the fathers needed carrots and sticks also) — and so who are the authorities for or against it?

Two esteemed white men...( with all due respect for — not Mr. Rector, but Mr. Edelman — see this blog, and get real!) —  knowing that HHS is full of slush funds, HUD probably IS being run as a criminal organization (People better qualified than I have explained it QUITE well and I’ll continue linking to it) and we — actually — are by contract with USA, Inc. — collateral for its debt?

Both are up in arms about the poor aren’t WORKING enough, the lazy bums (Rector) OR, they aren’t paid enough (Edelman) — when in fact in this post and others, I keep documenting people whose “work” is forming fake corporations and getting the courts to do their fishing for business, plus the corporation franchise set up by the federal government, and so forth.  Or taking money from the taxpayers in a state to meet secretly with a top honcho on how to promote marriage (steer marriage-promoting grants to cronies) — for example.

It’s a corporation and apparently what’s really going on over here is that when those HUGE corporate debts come due (about every 70 years), there’s a restructuring.  I just read this site through — it’s only a few pages — but if blended with thought (thinking) about its significance, SOME things won’t be the same again.


 


 

For example, the words “New Deal.” — — Here you go:   Start with “The District of Columbia Act of 1871”  At the bottom of each (not too long) page is a link to the next, as in “Myth #22,” etc.   There is no short cut for going through this — and because it is focusing on DEFINITIONS, and in Sequence — this is a MUST-READ

ALSO NOTE:

“A large portion of the information flying around the patriot and tax protest communities is false, baseless or worse.  Don’t believe anybody, just because they sound good. …”

I have no idea who “Team Law” is — but this is who the site says they are, or rather, what they’re into.  Also check out their chronological and short (but it packs a punch) “History of Our Nation.”

What is Team Law?   

Team Law is a self-help educational organization founded to help people:

  • Learn how to learn the law;
  • So they can learn how to apply the law;
  • So they can save our country and even the world.

Regardless of who you are, you are required to know the law. Yet in today’s society most people know very little about the law and or about our actual history; instead, they simply rely on others to tell them what to do. Thus, regardless of their actual rights and or nature they remain subjects to those that they rely upon for that guidance. Thus, because the people are generally ignorant of the law they are easily controlled and manipulated by others. If the people were to learn the law and its history they could:

  • Recognize mankind’s sovereign nature;
  • Secure our original Constitutional Republic form of government;
  • Preserve our Constitution and Laws;
  • Assure that our children learn and know the Law;
  • Preserve our actual history;
  • Inspire industry; and, develop wealth that continues to grow and be controlled by the people in their own hands.

THAT SAID — the entire rest of this post is transplanted from just a few over at Scranton PT – which wouldn’t fit.  COMMENTS ON “CAFR” and an example of one from Pennsylvania, dated August 10, 2012, same gravatar as here:

Could anyone LOCATE SOME OF THAT MISSING FUNDING.  GO GET THE CAFRs — as it explains (bottom link) — GOVERNMENTS LIKE US TO “FORGET” ABOUT SURPLUSES WHEN THEY SHOW BUDGETS.

HOW SOMEONE FOUND $54 million excess in California, where to look  “Advance Liability Funds”

Los Angeles Times | July 20, 2012 | 0:22 PM

California’s state parks system secretly stashed away $54 million even as it was cutting services and threatening to close parks, officials announced today. The department’s director, Ruth Coleman, resigned, and her second in command was fired as the hidden surplus was revealed. The state attorney general’s office is conducting an investigation.

The announcement means the department has plenty of cash, even though it has been soliciting hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations in what was thought to be a desperate scramble to keep parks open. ~ Officials from the agency that oversees the parks department said the department has under-reported tens of millions of dollars for the last 12 years.

This site (a blog, 7/2012) talks about how pension funds (PSERS, or CALPERS) are used to fund corporations — but who knows what those corps are doing?

As a taxpayer, you should know that many 100′s of billions of dollars are ripped out of the tax-base each year and force fed into the nation-wide pension system (including Social Security) in the form of ”on-behalf” taxpayer “contributions” for federal, state, local, and district pension employees. This world-wide phenomenon has created an international pension investment system that, in January 2008, Morgan Stanley estimated held over US $20 trillion in assets, and are collectively the largest investment platform in the world. Others with a less personal and unbiased interest in these pension funds make this estimate to be many trillions higher.

They are getting profits on these investments, overall — not losses.  Governments are corporations and it is their business to get profits.  Hence, showing lowest possible budgets (to the public) is good for getting more money from (the public).  There are a number of tricks to it, like — not reporting their holdings as well as their cash flow, as these blogs explain..

Calpers, for example (2011) invests in these other currencies: (that’s their “CAFR” link 2011):  (see PSERS, last comment).  ..

but they are raising tuition for their students . . . 

Resource from retired USAF colonel, very clear teaching and forms to find, review and report on these CAFRs — the man died in 2004.  But before then — for example, in NJ, when they found out about this resource, some people began reading it aloud — over the airwaves; they got people organized to look up the CAFrs in their counties, etc.  And then (naturally) came under attack for a while.

This “CAFRman.com” site says in 2003, Pennsylvania had $21 BILLION surpluses.  The key is — to know that the BUDGET for governments does NOT include money not spent the previous year — or all its holdings.

1. The budget only covers a small portion of the State’s financial condition. There are a group of funds not part of the budget process.

  • The CAFR covers, he says, four kinds of funds:  1.Government, 2. Proprietary, 3. Fiduciary and 4. Component Units (of gov’t).  The budget  — what they squawk loudly about — is only from #1 of 4.

The complete list of funds and budgetary requirements are found in the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). This report depicts thecomplete financial status of the State. The budget only covers a portion of the financial resources of the government.

2. Next year’s budget consists only of next year’s estimated revenues and next year’s estimated expenditures. Previous years’ revenues not used (spent) are normally not considered in the next year’s budget, but should be. In other words, the previous years’ revenues (as shown in the CAFR) are not recycled back to the budget process.

Historically, a budget consists of three parts: 1) Funds brought forward (funds not previously spent); 2) Next year’s estimated revenues; and 3) Next year’s estimated expenditures.

But somewhere along the way the funds brought forward category was lost. In accounting,the previous years’ revenues are no longer called revenue but have been converted to Cash and Investments. Since they no longer called Revenues governments have forgotten about them to the public. They are there but not considered in the budget process, but should be.

**sounds like the public should start reminding the government about these — after locating them!

Very good site to help look for that stuff that’s NOT being talked about.  It also tells people how to go for it…need not be a computer geek..  “there are approximately 83,000 governments and government-like entities in the U.S. We can only start you at the State, county, township, and/or city level. From there you will have to do some digging and ask questions.”

Finding a CAFR // Review Process “very simple — only 2 schedules — just need the CAFR, a pencil, a calculator & two forms:   Find the funds/subfunds & totals with surpluses add’em up, divide by population for “per capita.” (also often in “Exhibit A”).  (this is very methodical and laid out here….)

(from the conclusion of this straightforward site, put up by  Gerald R. Klatt Lieutenant Colonel, USAF (Ret.)Former: Auditor/Commander, Air Force Audit Agency Federal Accountant [[Friend of Walter Burien, apparently]]

The Wealth Gap and Communism

10% Own 73.2% of U.S. Wealth

 When Does Communism Exist, 73.2%, 90%, or 100%?

Remember, communism is a concept or system of society in which the major resources and means of production are owned by the community (governments and a few individuals who control governments) rather than by individuals. In theory, such societies provide for equal sharing of all work, according to ability, and all benefits, according to need. Some conceptions of communist societies assume that, ultimately, coercive government would be unnecessary and therefore that such a society would be without rulers. Until the ultimate stages are reached, however,communism involves the abolition of private property by a revolutionary movement; responsibility for meeting public needs is then vested in the state.

The special elite decide on how the wealth will be distributed among the people. All life styles, standard of living, actions, thoughts, and even life itself is decided by the state because the state owns and controls everything. Is it possible that communism could be created within a capitalistic society without a revolution? Have we already reached that point?

Reforms Come From Below. No Man With Four Aces Howls for a New Deal. 
(Fundamental Tenet of Reform) 
(see above).   cf. at what point does it become communism — when gov’t plus a very few control resources AND means to produce?  I don’t know, but if we don’t know what collective government is holding, I know that’s dumb!
