North Korea's Kim: Another socialist dictator with multimillions in assets

The world sure is a strange place.
Socialist Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan dictator whose recent demise broke socialist Sean Penn’s heart, died with a family fortune worth $2 billion. (Socialist Sean Penn has an estimated net worth of $150 million.)
Similarly, the personal fortunes of the socialist Castro brothers (Fidel and Raúl) in socialist Cuba are estimated to be about $2 billion.
Now comes news that the socialist young leader of the socialist and increasingly belligerent North Korea has a slush fund of hundreds of millions of dollars secreted in bank accounts all over the world. This, in a country where reportedly, many are starving and driven to cannibalism because of years of famine and government mismanagement.

North Korea’s leader: Kim “Porky Pig” Jong Un


Chosun.com reports, March 11, 2013, that South Korean and U.S. authorities have found dozens of accounts presumed to belong to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in several banks in Shanghai and other parts of China. They contain hundreds of millions of dollars.
Yet for some reason the accounts were excluded from financial sanctions under the new UN Security Council Resolution 2098, posing questions over the effectiveness of the measures.
A government source in South Korea said an investigation that lasted for several years led South Korea and the U.S. to the accounts: “We have located the names of the account holders and account numbers, some of them set up in the days of former North Korean leader Kim Jong-il.”
South Korean and U.S. officials urged China to include the accounts in the latest sanctions against North Korea, but Beijing apparently refused.
In 2005, the U.S. froze US$25 million Kim Jong-il had deposited in some 50 accounts at Macau’s Banco Delta Asia. North Korea hit back by boycotting the six-party nuclear talks, launching a long-range missile and conducting its first nuclear test in 2006.

That Hugo Chavez was some socialist!

Criminal Justice International Associates (CJIA), based in northern Virginia, is a global threat mitigation firm that, according to its self-description, performs “conceptual and technical expertise as consultants, senior trainers, practitioners, and speakers.” As such, CJIA:

  • Conducts “complex training designed/conducted within a ‘Situational Awareness’ environment”;
  • Consults on “the investigative direction in complex criminal/insurgent/transnational terrorist groups”; and
  • Identifies “trends, capabilities, intentions, and  tactics/strategies, based on threat indicators involving hostile force(s)/groups and other adversaries.”

The CEO of CJIA is Jerry E. Brewer, Sr., who claims to have “over 30 years of professional management/leadership experience in the field of Criminal Justice, both within government and private sectors,” including 15 years as Chief of Police in three states.

According to News In Venezuela, Brewer maintains that since socialist Hugo Chavez became president of socialist Venezuela in 1999, his Chávez Frías family had amassed a fortune of around $2 billion — similar to the personal fortunes of the socialist Castro brothers (Fidel and Raúl) in socialist Cuba.

In addition, Brewer claims that “organized bolivarian criminal groups within the Chávez administration have subtracted around $100 billion out of the nearly $1 trillion in oil income made by PDVSA since 1999.” PDVSA is Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A., socialist Venezuela’s state-owned oil and natural gas company.

Birds of a feather all flock together. No wonder Hugo Chavez is the darling of Sean Penn (estimated net worth $150 million) and other faux socialists in Hollywood!

Hugo Calls Obama a Clown

The best buds in happier times


BooHoo. There’s no honor among thieves grandiose narcissists.
Former Obama best bud, Hugo Chávez, is now calling him “a clown.”
Tom Phillips of The Guardian reports Dec. 20, 2011, that Chávez blasted Obama as a “clown” and an “embarrassment” who has turned the United States into a “disaster” after Obama criticized Venezuela’s ties with Iran and Cuba.
In a written interview Obama had with the Caracas paper El Universal, he questioned Venezuela’s connections to those countries. Incurring a narcissistic injury, Chávez hit back strongly at Obama on state TV Monday, saying Barry had given the interview only to “win votes” in the 2012 election.
That’s one clown calling another a clown. LOL

Hugo Chavez, Dec. 17, 2011.

He’s lost his hair from cancer treatments, but Hugo Chavez still manages to be fat despite his country, Venezuela, having a poverty rate of 66% in 1995.

So was the now-dead North Korea’s “Dear Leader” Kim Jong Il. So is Kim Jong Un, the 27-year-old youngest son of Dear Leader and the designated successor. Both are porky, although their countrymen are literally starving to death.

North Korea's new leader: Kim "Porky Pig" Jong Un


Did you know that President For Life of a socialist country Hugo Chavez — born in a 3-room mud hut into a working class family and later became a career military officer before he entered politics —  has a net worth estimated to be ONE BILLION U.S. DOLLARS?

Who Are the Top 1%?

“Those who don’t know the game or are assets and manipulators of  the game will want to ‘endorse’ people and organisations they say they support  in cleaning up America – but they will be the very people and groups that are  systematically destroying America.”David Icke, October 16, 2011
The movement that began as Occupy Wall Street in New York has spread to other cities across America as well as countries. In Italy, the Occupiers instigated a riot in Rome, torching cars and smashing windows, which required armed police to be brought in.

In the name of equity, the Occupiers say they are the 99% opposed to the top 1%, the filthy rich. So who are America’s Top 1%?
To begin, we need to define “income” vs. “wealth or net worth.”
Income is what people earn — from salaries, wages, dividends, interest, royalties, and rents from properties they own. U.C. Santa Cruz Sociology Professor William Domhoff claims that most of the income of “the rich” does not come from “working”: In 2008, only 19% of the income reported by the 13,480 individuals or families making over $10 million came from wages and salaries.
Wealth is the value of everything a person or family owns in marketable assets (such as real estate, stocks, and bonds, but not including cars and household items), minus any debts or liabilities (such as home mortgages, credit card debts and auto loans). In effect, wealth is assets minus debts, or W = A-D. That is why a better term for “wealth” is “net worth.”
High income (HI) may or may not mean great wealth because a high-income person or household may simply spend everything they make — and more, by going into debt. At the same time, an individual or household with moderate or even low income (MI/LI) may actually become wealthy by being frugal and investing their savings wisely.
Thus, HI ≠ W; whereas it is highly possible that MI/LI = W. Remember that when you decide to condemn “the wealthy.”
Wikipedia says the current per capita (per person) median income in the United States is roughly $32,000 (for those employed full-time between the ages of 25 and 64, it’s $39,000). By “median” income is meant that the figure $32,000 divides the American population into two equal halves — half (50%) of Americans make more than $32,000, and the other half make less than $32,000.
The U.S. Census Bureau offers income data by household and individual. 42% of U.S. households have two income earners; thus making households’ income levels higher than personal income levels. According to a 2008 article on the investment website My Budget 360, the median U.S. household income was $46,326. Dual earner households had a higher median income at $67,348.
Currently marketing corporations and investment houses classify those with household incomes exceeding $75,000 as “mass affluent,” while sociologist Leonard Beeghley identifies all those with a net worth of $1 million or more as “rich.” The upper class is most commonly defined as the top 1% with household incomes commonly exceeding $250,000 annually.

Income in America (source: Wikipedia)


In a recent Census report there are 110 million households in the United States. Here’s the distribution of U.S. households’ income in 2006:

  • Top third (34.73%) of households had annual gross income of $65,000 or more.
  • Top quarter (25.60%) of households had annual gross income of $80,000 or more.
  • Top quintile (20%) of households had annual gross income of $91,202 or more.
  • Top 15% (17.80%) of households had annual gross income of $100,000 or more.
  • Top 10% of households had annual gross income of $118,200 or more.
  • Top 5% of households (3/4s of whom had 2 income earners) had annual gross income of $166,200 or more.
  • Top 3% (2.67%) had annual gross income of $200,000 or more.
  • Top 1.5% had annual gross income of $250,000 or more.
  • Top 0.1% (0.12% or 146,000 households) had annual gross income of $1,600,000 or more.

The 2008 article on My Budget 360 further breaks down that Top 0.1%. At its apex are:

  • The top 0.01% (11,000 households) with annual incomes of $5.5 million or more.
  • The top 400 highest tax payers in America had annual incomes of $87 million or more.

Notice how the incomes gradually go up from the Top Third’s $65,000 to the Top 1.5%’s $250,000, but between the Top 1.5%’s $250,000 and the Top 0.1%’s $1.6 million) is a huge gap of $1.35 million!
While households in the top 1.5% of households had incomes exceeding $250,000, 443% above the national median, their incomes were still 2200% lower than those of the top 0.01% of households. One can therefore conclude that almost any household, even those with incomes of $250,000 annually are poor when compared to the top 0.1%, who in turn are poor compared to the top 0.000267%, the top 400 taxpaying households.
According to the Federal Reserve Board, here’s the distribution of U.S. households’ networths in 2001:

  • 6.9% of U.S. households had a negative networth of <$0 (i.e., those who not only have zero assets but are in debt).
  • 5.4% of households had a networth of $0-$999.
  • 2.4% of households had a networth of $1,000-$2,499.
  • 3.5% of households had a networth of $2,500-$4,999.
  • 4.7% of households had a networth of $5,000-$9,999.
  • 8.1% of households had a networth of $10,000-$24,999.
  • 9.2% of households had a networth of $25,000-$49,999.
  • 12.8% of households had a networth of $50,000-$99,999.
  • 19.2% of households had a networth of $100,000-$249,999.
  • 13% of households had a networth of $250,000-$499,999.
  • 7.8% of households had a networth of $500,000-$999,999.
  • 7% of households had a networth of $1 million or more.

Alas, the Federal Reserve Board did not break that top 7% down, so we don’t know what’s the networth of the Top 1% of U.S. households, other than that the Top 1% own 32.7% of Americans’ total networth in 2001. In contrast, 50% of U.S. households own just 2.8% of Americans’ total networth.
Here are some interesting tidbits about the above distribution of U.S. households’ networths:

  • 58% of households with negative networth were young, i.e., under 35 years old (which makes sense because many college students are poor).
  • Those with negative networth are more likely to have a less-than-high-school education.
  • Among those with negative networth, the percentage who are unemployed (but not retired) is more than twice they are in the larger population.
  • Households with negative networth are concentrated in the South and in the West.
  • 10.1% of households with networth of $1 million or more are Boomers (aged 46-55).
  • 28.2% of the Top 1% households in networth are Boomers.

The Top 1%

Leonard Beeghley called the top 0.9% the “Super Rich”, whom he described as “Multi-millionaires whose incomes commonly exceed $350,000; includes celebrities and powerful executives/politicians.” The OWS Movement say they are against the Top 1%. Here are some members of the Top 1% who are or should be targets:
Barack Obama: (supports OWS)

  •  Annual POTUS salary (not total income): $400,000
  • Net worth in 2010: $10.5 million

The 25 richest members of Congress (in Roll Call’s 2009 annual survey that gives only their estimated net worth. Under federal law, members of Congress must disclose their personal investments and liabilities, but only in broad categories, thereby shielding the exact value of any asset or debt):

Will irony ever end?
By the way, raging socialist and President-for-life of Venezuela Hugo Chavez has an estimated networth of $1 Billion (!) — the same as Prince Albert II of Monaco. Another raging socialist, Fidel Castro of Cuba, has an estimated networth of $900 million.
Adios for now. See you at the Revolution!

Iran is Stationing Missiles in Venezuela

Cuban Missile Crisis redux.
This is ominous news: Iran (not America’s friend) is stockpiling missiles in Venezuela (not America’s friend) with a reach to the U.S. mainland.
I first saw a report on this 3 days ago but held off on posting this until I get additional confirmation.
Does America still hold to the Monroe Doctrine?

An Iranian Shahab 3 missile. (UPI)

German Media: Iran Is Stockpiling Shahab 3 Missiles in Venezuela That Can Reach US

By Jim Hoft – Gateway Pundit – December 9, 2010
While Obama has been focusing his attention on the Republican hostage takers and bomb throwers the Iranian regime has been stockpiling Shahab 3 missiles in Venezuela that can reach the United States.
Hudson New York reported, via Israel Matsav:

According to Die Welt, Venezuela has agreed to allow Iran to establish a military base manned by Iranian missile officers, soldiers of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and Venezuelan missile officers. In addition, Iran has given permission for the missiles to be used in case of an “emergency”. In return, the agreement states that Venezuela can use these facilities for “national needs” – radically increasing the threat to neighbors like Colombia. The German daily claims that according to the agreement, Iranian Shahab 3 (range 1300-1500 km), Scud-B (285-330 km) and Scud-C (300, 500 and 700 km) will be deployed in the proposed base. It says that Iran also pledged to help Venezuela in rocket technology expertise, including intensive training of officers
Venezuela has also become the country through which Iran intends to bypass UN sanctions. Following a new round of UN sanctions against the Islamic Republic, for example, Russia decided not to sell five battalions of S-300PMU-1 air defence systems to Iran. These weapons, along with a number of other weapons, were part of a deal, signed in 2007, worth $800 million. Now that these weapons cannot be delivered to Iran, Russia is looking for new customers; according to the Russian press agency Novosti[2], it found one: Venezuela.
