Stocks Tumble as Congressman Predicts Economic Riots in America Kurt Nimmo Infowars.com November 13, 2012 Stocks tumbled again on fears of the rapidly approaching fiscal cliff in the United States and a failure by eurozone finance ministers and the IMF to decide how Greece will resolve its sovereign debt and pay off the banksters at Société Générale, Deutsche Bank, Eurobank, and other loan sharking institutions. “This morning the reasons du jour started out with Europe and the kerfuffle over Greece and then you have the fiscal cliff,” Michael Holland, chairman of New York-based Holland & Co., told Bloomberg News. Amid the lackluster performance of the stock market, the Obama administration has invited top establishment politicos in Congress to the White House later this week to hammer out a plan to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. Business honchos from some of the world’s largest transnational corporations will be in attendance, including those from American Express, Ford Motor and Honeywell International. “We’re not out of the woods yet,” said Guillaume Duchesne, an equity strategist at BGL BNP Paribas SA in Luxembourg. He added that a resolution of the financial crisis threatening to extend the recession for the foreseeable future depends on the leadership of Obama. According to Rep. John Fleming, we won’t be getting out of the woods anytime soon, especially with Obama at the helm. “It looks like we’re going to have to go through the same or similar pain [as Greece] to get real reforms,” the Louisiana Republican told the Daily Caller on Sunday. He said that if the current economic trend is not reversed, “what’s going to happen is there’s going to be a day of reckoning that gets into a serious situation where we have to make tough choices.” Greece’s fiscal pain erupted into violent riots last week after the country’s three-party coalition government voted to adopt the €18.5bn budget cuts by 2016. Protesters lobbed Molotov cocktails and rocks at police who responded with stun grenades, tear gas and the first use of water cannon in Greece in years, according to The Telegraph. “Americans may think this sort of thing can’t happen here, but the globalists plan to take them down too,” we wrote on November 7 as riots commenced in Greece. “The economic meltdown is a slow burn that will eventually lead to violence, but Americans will not be just throwing Moltov cocktails like the Greeks.” Greek protesters throw Molotov cocktails at riot police http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=bVVzr5SxWkY Citizens from 34 States Petition the White House to Secede from the U.S. Adan Salazar Infowars.com November 13, 2012 Citizens from 14 additional states have opened up petitions on the White House’s “We the People” petition submission site – the government’s “new, easy way for Americans to make their voice heard in our government” – asking to allow “peaceful withdrawal” from the continental United States, a staggering increase from the 20 states reported yesterday. Concerned citizens from the states of Alaska, Arizona, California, Delaware, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Wyoming, to name a few, now all have petitions inching their way towards the signature threshold of 25,000 on the government site. If the petitions reach the threshold, they will require a response from the Obama administration. After enough signatures are garnered, members from all major policy offices “will help determine which policy office in the White House or federal agency should review and respond to petitions and ensure that petition responses are posted as quickly as possible.” So far, two states, Texas and Louisiana, have reached their required signature thresholds and will require responses. Florida’s petition should reach the threshold by the end of the day. Here’s the latest list of states and signature counts as of writing this. Some citizens in a few states have opened up multiple petitions for the same state. 1. Alaska (2,814) 2. Alabama (19,718) 3. Arizona (11,642) 4. Arkansas (14,384) 5. California (5,444) 6. Colorado (14,111) 7. Delaware (4,532) 8. Florida (21,129) 9. Georgia (19,802), Georgia (9,457) 10.Indiana (12,938) 11.Kansas (2,786) 12.Kentucky (12,319) 13.Louisiana (28,741) 14.Michigan (12,868) 15.Mississippi (12,355) 16.Missouri, Missouri 17.Montana (9,634) 18.Nebraska (1,879) 19.Nevada (5,941) 20.New Jersey (9,961) 21.New York (3,974), New York (11,084) 22.North Carolina (18,601) 23.North Dakota (8,633) 24.Ohio (1,010), Ohio (5,357) 25.Oklahoma (3,681), Oklahoma (11,013) 26.Oregon (10,158) 27.Pennsylvania (2,420), Pennsylvania (7,624) 28.S.C. (15,045), South Carolina (10,948) 29.South Dakota (1,372) 30.Tennessee (19,030) 31.Texas (70,791) 32.Utah (626), Utah (4,028) 33.West Virginia (1,530) 34.Wyoming (4,069) Most of the petitions cite phrases straight out of the founding fathers’ Declaration of Independence, which states, “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.” Alaska’s petition asks for a “free election” to allow citizens of Alaska to decide if they “should be a free and Independent Nation.” It was suspected that petitions were only being submitted by states from the original confederacy, which could potentially indicate racism towards Obama; however, the support of various other states in the nation has helped quash that theory. Not everyone’s on board with the idea. One person put up a petition asking for signatures to support the deportation of everyone that signed the previous secession petitions. Another asked the U.S. to strip the citizenship of those who signed the petition and to “exile them.” According to the site’s FAQ section, anyone with a valid e-mail address and age “13 or older can create or sign an online petition seeking a federal government action on a range of issues. Then it’s up to the petition creator and signers to build support for the petition by gathering more signatures.” Seth Masket, a political science professor at the University of Denver, told the Washington Times that petitions of this nature won’t be taken seriously by the president or the administration and are little more than grandiose gestures illustrating the discontent of voters. “It’s hard to see this as anything other than sour grapes,” Mr. Masket told the Washington Times via e-mail. “These petitions have no legal power and no president would ever agree to them. It’s a way to register dissent with the way the majority of the country voted last week, but it’s little beyond that.” The White House will still have to come up with some type of response for petitions that reached the 25,000 mark but they don’t give a specific time frame for when a response should be expected. http://www.infowars.com/
