Mary Bancroft – Master Spy

“I can’t understand what the f–k you are saying.” The voice came from an elderly lady in the back row of my computer class. It was from Mary Bancroft, a part owner of The Wall Street Journal. She is the author of Autobiography of a Spy and was the woman behind the plot to kill Hitler, the lover of CIA chief, Allen Dulles, the lady who invited me to dinner to meet Woody Allen and, yes, Mary Bancroft was my computer student.

Bernanke helps the Republicans with his “fiscal cliff” scarewords

Ben Bernanke

Ben Bernanke

The scare words “fiscal cliff” entered the political game in February when bearded professor, Ben Bernanke, warned Congress about the austerity measures set to kick in automatically at year’s end.

Bernanke said, “Under current law, on January 1, 2013, there’s going to be a massive fiscal cliff of large spending cuts and tax increases,” Then, in a warning to Democrats, continued “I hope that Congress will look at that and figure out ways to achieve the same long-run fiscal improvement without having it all happen at one date.”

A warning to democrats? Yes, remember that Ben Shalom Bernanke was appointed by President Bush way back on February 1, 2006, to be chairman of the United States Federal Reserve.

Now Bernanke is doing his best to repay Bush by forcing Congress to keep the Bush tax cuts for the rich. A New York Times  article claimed the full Bush-era tax cuts were the single biggest contributor to the deficit over the past decade, reducing revenues by about $1.8 trillion between 2002 and 2009.

As part of the “fiscal cliff” package, the Bush tax cuts for the rich are due to expire on January 1, 2013. These tax cuts are for incomes of $250,000 per year, and above (plus $4 trillion+ for the Bush wars).

Joining Bernanke in misleading the American people is House Speaker John Boehner, who claims that the Bush tax cuts will hurt small businesses, those who account for most of the jobs in the U.S. What Boehner fails to point out is that 94% of small businesses fall under the $250,000 figure—while only 6% are above that amount.

Bernanke’s scare tactics and Boehner’s lies are the last ditch stand of the Republican Party to serve the rich at the expense of the middle class.

The so-called “fiscal cliff” will do away with the Bush tax cuts, as well as lowering defense spending with minor impact on the growing American economy.

The “fiscal cliff” will not hurt the economy; it is a good thing—except for the Rich.
