+106%: Obama Has More Than Doubled Marketable U.S. Debt

By Terence P. Jeffrey       February 18, 2014 – 1:37 PM

(CNSNews.com) – The marketable debt of the U.S. government has more than doubled–climbing by 106 percent–while President Barack Obama has been in office, increasing from $5,749,916,000,000 at the end of January 2009 to $11,825,322,000,000 at the end of January 2014, according to the U.S. Treasury’s latest Monthly Statement of the Public Debt.

During the eight-year presidency of George W. Bush, the marketable debt of the U.S. government almost doubled–climbing 93 percent–from $2,977,328,000,000 at the end of January 2001 to $5,749,916,000,000 at the end of January 2009.

( Bush was a Boob Too)

During the time that Bush and Obama have been in office, the marketable debt of the U.S. government has nearly quadrupled, increasing by $8,847,994,000,000.

MARKETABLE DEBT-CHART

However, despite the massive increase in the government’s marketable debt during Bush’s eight years, Obama managed to accumulate more additional marketable debt in his first five years in office than all the presidents who preceded combined.

Let’s read that again..

However, despite the massive increase in the government’s marketable debt during Bush’s eight years, Obama managed to accumulate more additional marketable debt in his first five years in office than all the presidents who preceded combined.

The marketable debt of the U.S. government includes all debt securities sold by the U.S. Treasury that can be held by individuals, corporations or other entities outside the U.S. government and that can be sold in the secondary market.

It does not include money the Treasury has borrowed out of government trust funds—such as the Social Security Trust Fund—to spend on other government expenses when those trust funds were running surpluses.

The marketable debt of the U.S. government now includes Treasury bills, which mature in 52 weeks or less; Treasury notes, which have maturities between 2 and 10 years; Treasury bonds, which mature in 30 years; Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS), which have maturities of 5, 10 and 30 years; and Floating Rate Notes (FRNs), which are sold on 2-year terms.

At the end of January 2009, the month Obama took office, the marketable debt of the U.S. government was $5,749,916,000,000, according the Treasury’s Monthly Statement of the Public Debt. This included $1,792,889,000,000 in Treasury bills held by the public; $2,825,174,000,000 in Treasury notes held by the public; $591,174,000,000 in Treasury bonds; and $516,209,000,000 in TIPS.

It also included $23,754,000,000 in marketable Treasury bills, notes, bonds, TIPS and Federal Financing Bank notes that, according to the Treasury, were held by federal agencies.

In addition to the $5,749,916,000,000 in marketable debt as of the end of January 2009, the Treasury also reported $4,882,164,000,000 in nonmarketable debt owed by the government at that time, including $4,291,027,000,000 in nonmarketable intragovernmental debt.

By the end of January 2014, the marketable debt of the U.S. government had increased to $11,825,322,000,000. This included $1,484,438,000,000 in Treasury bills held  by the public; $7,922,464,000,000 in Treasury notes held by the public; $1,421,110,000,000 in Treasury bonds held by the public; $959,058,000,000 in TIPS held by the public, and $15,000,000,000 in FRNs held by the public. There was also $23,252,000,000 in marketable debt held by government agencies.

In addition to the $11,825,322,000,000 in marketable debt as of the end of January 2014, the Treasury also reported $5,467,698,000,000 in nonmarketable debt, including $4,961,625,000,000 in nonmarketable intragovernmental debt.

From January 2009 to January 2014, the marketable debt of the U.S. government increased $6,075,406,000,000—or about 106%

The Federal Reserve is now the largest owner of the U.S. government’s marketable debt. As of Feb. 12, 2014, according to the Fed’s latest balance sheet, the Fed owned $2,261,099,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities.

Entities in the People’s Republic of China are the second largest owners of the U.S. government’s marketable debt. As of the end of December, according to data released by the U.S. Treasury today, the Chinese owned $1,268,900,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities—down from $1,316,700,000,000 at the end of November.

In January 2014, according to the Treasury, the U.S. paid an average interest rate of only 1.998 percent on its marketable debt. In January 2009, when Obama took office, the Treasury was paying an average interest rate of 3.116 percent on its marketable debt; and, in January 2001, when President George W. Bush took office, the Treasury was paying an average interest rate of 6.620 percent on its marketable debt.

That means that the average interest rate on the U.S. government’s marketable debt is currently less than a third of what it was in 2001—when the U.S. had only $2,977,328,000,000 in marketable debt, or about 25 percent of the marketable debt it has now.

Also in January 2001, the Federal Reserve owned only $518,441,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities, or about 23 percent of what it owns now.

Limp-wristed girly-man that apparently has Rep. Boehner by the proverbial short hairs


And would somebody please remind me just why, exactly, we even need a republican party, given that the repube “leadership” jackasses have now rid themselves of their elephant suits?
And we’re going to fix this in November of 2014?

Idiots are running this country

lemmings for Obama

A Nation Run by Idiots
by Gary North
TeaPartyEconomist.com, Dec. 20, 2012

You know you live in a Country run by idiots if…
You can get arrested for expired tags on your car but not for being in the country illegally.Your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more of our money.
A seven year old boy can be thrown out of school for calling his teacher “cute”, but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable.
The Supreme Court of the United States can rule that lower courts cannot display the 10 Commandments in their courtroom…while sitting in front of a display of the 10 Commandments.
Children are forcibly removed from parents who appropriately discipline them while children of “underprivileged” drug addicts are left to rot in filth infested cesspools of a ‘home’
Hard work and success are rewarded with higher taxes and government intrusion, while at least some slothful, lazy behavior is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid, subsidized housing, and free cell phones.
The government’s plan for getting people back to work is to provide 99 weeks of unemployment checks (to not work).
Being self-sufficient is considered a threat to the government.
Politicians think that stripping away the amendments to the constitution is really protecting the rights of the people.
The rights of the Government come before the rights of the individual.
You pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big screen TV while your neighbor defaults on his mortgage (while buying iPhones, TV’s and new cars) and the government forgives his debt and reduces his mortgage (with your tax dollars).
Being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you “safe”.
An 80 year old woman can be stripped searched by the TSA but a Muslim woman in a burka is only subject to having her neck and head searched.
Using the “N” word is considered “hate speech” but writing and singing songs about raping women and killing cops is considered “art”.
You can write a post like this just by reading the news headlines.
Unfortunately, this list could go on and on. Our country is run by idiots.

***

H/t my friend Robert K. Wilcox!
To the above list you and I can add plenty, such as:

You must produce your original birth certificate to apply for a passport, but not if you’re running for the highest office of the land who will have his/her finger on the nuclear button.

The Day America Committed Suicide

“Every nation has the government it deserves.”

So observed a very wise man — Count Joseph-Marie de Maistre (1753-1821), a French philosopher and diplomat.

Future historians (if there are any) will record that on November 6, 2012, the no longer United States of America committed suicide.

We, the Opposition — comprised of Conservatives, Christians, Libertarians, and Patriots — had been telling ourselves that the polls showing a tight race must be wrong. Because the pollsters over sample Democrats. Because “nobody” have landline phones anymore. Because so many polling organizations are corrupt. Because….

In the end, it turns out the polls not only were right, they were overly optimistic for Romney.

In the end, the Electoral College vote count wasn’t even close:

332 for Obama v. 206 for Romney

In the end, instead of Romney winning by a landslide, it was the POS winning by an avalanche. The POS even won the popular vote: 62,615,406 vs. Romney’s 59,142,004. [Source: FoxNews]

Romney won Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, No. Dakota, Oklahoma, So. Carolina, So. Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

POS won California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Washington D.C., and Wisconsin.

In the end, the swing states of Ohio and Virginia swung to the POS. As of this writing, Florida — with 97% of precincts having reported — is still a toss-up (O 50% vs. R 49%). Not that it matters.

Was it massive Demonrat electoral fraud that did it?

Was it Demonrats’ intimidation — all the threats of riots and assassination, and videos of 97-year-olds threatening to “burn this motherfucker down” and of Romney supporters being maimed, decapitated and exploded — that got to gutless voters?

We can debate all we want. Sure, there’ll be feeble efforts at “investigating” and of lawsuits. But the POS’s so-called Department of “Justice” under his henchman, the so-called “U.S. attorney general” — Amerika’s chief law enforcer! — Eric Holder, will simply stonewall everything.

But I do know this:

The sheeple who voted for the POS so that they’ll keep getting government handouts, welfare, and entitlement checks are in for a rude shock. Amerika is broke. As we Cassandras have been warning here on Fellowship of the Minds:

  • Our national debt is over $16 trillion — more than Amerika’s gross national product.
  • The main Social Security program — the so-called SS “Trust Fund” — will run out of money even sooner than we’d been told — by 2023, instead of 2033. When that happens, BY LAW your Social Security checks will be cut by 25%.

The above bankrupt dates will now be shortened now that the POS and his Demonrats have four more years to overspend, without restraint. And if you think taxing “the rich” will plug the gaping deficit hole — not that taxing “the rich” 100% can fill the hole — you’re delusional.

Unlike the delusional sheeple sucking on Big Government’s teats, “the rich” have both the resources, the means, and the will to simply leave the “United” States. Just as “the rich” in France have and are, after the French sheeple voted in a socialist government that immediately imposed a draconian 75% tax on “the rich.”

Congratulations, my fellow selfish, lazy, envious, covetous, willfully ignorant, stupid, and just plain evil Amerikans.

Yesterday, you voted for a thoroughly evil man and evil party. In so doing, you voted for your own doom. The next four years will be four years of one financial disaster after another. The next four years will see your constitutional freedoms fall, one after another. And if you complain, you sheeple will finally discover:

  • What Obama’s senior adviser consigliere, the Iran-born Marxist Valerie Jarrett, meant when she vowed: “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time.No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.”
  • Why there’ve been sightings across Amerika of trucks jammed full of “Martial Law” signs. (FOTM decided not to report this, not wanting to make you “nervous” before the election.)

*Faithful Catholics who attend Mass weekly went for Romney.

For as long as Obama, the Demonrats, and WordPress choose to keep the Internet free, Fellowship of the Minds will continue to chronicle Amerika’s descent into the abyss. Just don’t be surprised when one morning you fire up your computer to come on FOTM to discover we’re not around any more. When that day comes, don’t say I haven’t warned you….

In sorrow,

Accountant explains U.S. budget-debt disaster in 5 min.

This is a NON-PARTISAN video produced by an accountant, Hal Mason, who retired after 27 years with IBM.

In this video, Mason does something that all the handsomely-paid economists and pundits you see in the media seem unable to do.

Mason looks at the federal government’s budget, revenues and expenses, and very clearly and simply explains our national fiscal and debt problem in 5½ minutes.

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=EW5IdwltaAc]

My only disagreement with Mr. Mason is that he left out one thing in his proposed recipe to fix America’s Titanic-sized nightmare:

In addition to drastically cutting spending and drastically reducing the size of government, we must also grow the economy by creating more jobs, which means more Americans work, which means they’ll pay taxes, which translates into more revenue (income) for government.

That’s what Romney-Ryan propose to do. The POS will make our disaster even more disastrous by propelling us over the cliff, faster. That’s the real meaning of his campaign motto of “Forward.”

Alas, too many Americans are willingly blind, deaf, and in a massive state of denial. It’s a blindness so massive it’s no longer simply a psychological phenomenon. The blindness is rooted in spiritual darkness.

“…you are living among a rebellious people. They have eyes to see but do not see and ears to hear but do not hear, for they are a rebellious people.” -Ezekiel 12:2

Japan’s death by demographics

When a country’s population no longer reproduce, the proportion of senior citizens or old people increases.

That’s what’s going on in Japan. Increasing numbers of its young people are asexual. Not only are they shunning the idea of marriage and having children, as many as 1 in 4 unmarried men and women in their 30s say they have never had sex.

But demographics have economic consequences.

Old people not only don’t work, they also buy less, except for food and medicine. All this has negative implications for the country’s GDP (gross domestic product) because fewer workers and less labor reduce national economic output. At the same time, the rising number of retirees strains government’s welfare programs and the country’s pension funds that are major buyers of government bonds.
Then if you add to all this, a huge national debt of more than $13.7 trillion and growing — the world’s second-largest debt load — what you have is national suicide.

The proportion of the Japanese population over 65 years old:

  • 1 in 10 in 1985
  • 1 in 5 in 2006
  • more than 1 in 4 in 2014
  • 30% by 2022
  • 40% by 2050

Bloomberg’s economist, Michael McDonough, shows Japan’s grim future via three graphs:

Graph #1 shows steep GDP losses in those prefectures (districts) in Japan that have more older people — a harbinger of what’s in store for Japan as a country:

Graph #2 shows how the aging population decelerates economic growth:

Graph #3 shows how Japan’s national debt will continue to mount:

Forward to what, Obama?

Design by BKeyser


The Re-elect Obama Campaign has a new slogan:

“Forward”

Inquiring minds want to know: Forward to what, where?
In his opinion essay for Politico, May 21, 2012, Keith Koffler asks:
Under Obama, the unemployment rate soared above 8% and has stayed there. Forward to 9%?
Under Obama, the national debt has risen by some $5 trillion. Forward to $6 trillion?
The economy grew by only 2.2% in the first quarter of 2012. Forward to 1%?
Opposition to Obama’s signature achievement, “Obamacare,” runs roughly 10 points ahead of support. Forward to more unpopular programs? […]
The only reassurance Americans might get from being told to move “forward” is that Obama has not been clear about where he wants to go. Take a look at Obama’s campaign website. There’s almost nothing about what he intends to do during a second term.
Certainly, the president has no plan at all for reforming entitlement spending, the key to reining in the deficit and putting the economy on firm footing. As southern Europe sinks into the Mediterranean beneath its debt load, Obama will move us “forward” into a world of ever increasing red ink.
“Forward” is not just a sign of presidential hubris. It’s a Freudian slip, a revelation of the left-leaning instincts of the most liberal president this country has ever had.
The slogan is the distillation of the faith of liberals that all forward movement is progress, that new ideas, ethics and programs are enlightened because they are new; that old beliefs must always be cast off so that modern thinking can advance society into a brilliant future.

It’s the thinking that leads Democrats to believe in a nation in which everyone has health insurance, billions should be spent developing exotic fuels and everyone gets higher education.

Conservatives, by their very nature, question the benefit of “forward” — asking how much it will cost. They question whether the ideas from those prodding us “forward” aren’t going to have unintended consequences that turn visions of paradise into nightmares.
They ask whether a government that mandates utopian projects like universal health care will then start mandating something more egregious. They want to know whether the programs to perfect everyone’s lives will bankrupt the country.
The Obama campaign’s call to move “forward” will backfire — in that it inadvertently throws into relief the ideological choice that confronts the electorate. Do we, as our debt climbs unfettered into the stratosphere, continue moving “forward” with the costly plans of a liberal president?
“Obamacare’s” cost, according to Congressional Budget Office estimates when it was passed, would be close to $1 trillion. The White House declared that it had responsibly “paid for” the program with spending cuts and tax increases.
Left out was that all those savings will no longer be available to bring down the deficit. The suggestion was that “Obamacare” was cost free. Not at all.
The president continues to propose moving us “forward” with various pricey social engineering schemes — like lowering subsidized college loan rates, helping homeowners refinance at current mortgage rates and providing tax credits for investments in “clean energy manufacturing.”
Unlike President Bill Clinton, who recognized the public disenchantment with the grand plans of his first term and retrenched by signing election-year legislation to reform welfare, Obama continues to press his agenda undiluted.
Now his mistake has been distilled into a slogan more likely to repel voters than rally them.

H/t our beloved Miss May.

Wake Up America!

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRxMQhn0WAg]
We are enslaved to our debt. Wake up, America! Before it is too late…
Every man, woman and child in America is enslaved to the national debt. As an artist, I have painted my vision of the dire circumstances that surround us. Now, more than ever, each American must make a choice: we must unlock the shackles that enslave us, or will we lose our freedom. It is my hope and prayer that America will “wake up” before it is too late.
Those who are familiar with my work know that I like to use symbolism and metaphor to engage the viewer. See if you can find and decipher the many symbols in this image by visiting https://www.jonmcnaughton.com
In the painting I have intentionally hidden six keys that represent solutions that will release us from the chains of economic and political bondage. Find these keys and share them with as many Americans as you can. If we don’t “wake up” future generations may not know what it means to be free.
-Jon McNaughton, political artist

7 signs that you are a slave

The warning signs are all there:

  • National debt of nearly $16 trillion, which now exceeds America’s GDP.
  • An economy that continues to ail, its decreasing jobless rate due only to the increasing numbers of American who have given up trying to find work.
  • An administration that rules by fiat, via executive orders, administrative rules, and “czars” who were never approved nor confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
  • A President who still conceals many of his documents, including even his kindergarten school records, and whose birth certificate image and Selective Service registration are suspected to be forgeries according to the investigation of an elected county sheriff.
  • A Congress that passed into law a healthcare bill that may be unconstitutional, and a National Defense Authorization Act that makes it lawful to arrest and detain U.S. citizens without charge or trial.
  • A media and Black leaders who twist, exploit, and outright misrepresent the facts of a tragic shooting to inflame racial tensions.

Despite all these signs, and more, millions of Americans seem deliberately uninformed, obdurately ignorant, and blithely unconcerned about what has and is happening to our country. We call them sheeple.
Are you frustrated by the Slumber of the Sheeple?
We, the writers of Fellowship of the Mind, certainly do and have made it our quest to tell the truth and hopefully waken the sheeple.
All that is the subject of the Brandon Smith’s “Understanding the Slave Mentality,” for Alt-Market.com. He calls the sheeple’s slumber the Slave Mentality — “unconscious desire for collectivism and control”.
In the long excerpt from his article (below), Smith explains and offers 7 signs of the slave mentality. (I inserted the numbers 1-7.)
The rest of Smith’s long article is his analysis of the dismissal of anti-Obama Marine Sgt Gary Stein and whether soldiers should forfeit their constitutional free speech rights. For that analysis, go here.

Understanding the Slave Mentality

By Brandon Smith – Alt-Market.com – April 2, 2012
In the initial stages of nearly every recorded tyranny, the saucer eyed dumbstruck masses exhibit astonishing and masterful skill when denying reality.  The facts behind their dire circumstances and of their antagonistic government become a source of cynical psychological gameplay rather than a source of legitimate concern.  Their desperate need to maintain their normalcy bias creates a memory and observation vacuum in which all that runs counter to their false assumptions and preconceptions disappears forever.  It is as if they truly cannot see the color of the sky, or the boot on their face.  The concrete world of truth becomes a dream, an illusion that can be heeded or completely ignored depending on one’s mood.  For them, life is a constant struggle of dissociation, where the tangible is NOT welcome…
This is the problem that we in the Liberty Movement deal with most often in our writings and films.  Our confrontation with willful ignorance has been epic, even by far reaching historical standards.  The gains in social awareness have been substantial, and yet the obstacles are incredible.  Unprecedented.  As an activist trend, we have an almost obsessive drive to draw back the curtain so that the public has at least the opportunity to see what is on the other side.
[…] But what are the signs of this unconscious desire for collectivism and control?  What makes a slave do what he does?  Here are just a handful of explanations to consider…
1. The True Slave: The true slave is not a person who has been shackled, beaten, tortured, and made to comply under threat of death.  As long as that poor soul has the spirit of rebellion and is ever seeking freedom, they are not imprisoned fully.  The true slave is a person who enjoys their subservience, who is weighted with fear by the very idea of independence from the system, and who would actually fight and die to maintain the establishment which enslaves them.  The true slave is not able to imagine living any other life beyond his micro-managed existence.
2. The Facts Lose Value: The worst flaw of the slave is not necessarily his ability to overlook the truth, but his ability to see it, comprehend it, and then shrug it off anyway because it is contrary to his mission to fulfill his private delusions.  For the slave, the truth exists, but is no longer useful.  Lies make his universe turn, and facts are a tool to be used or cast aside at his leisure.

3. The Obsession With The Law:
The slave mentality, though illogical and psychotic, still requires a certain foundation to hold it together.  The laws of governments tend to suffice.  These laws may go completely against the force of inherent conscience, but because the slave has already abandoned listening to his inner voice of reason, this does not bother him much.  If you have ever wondered why modern tyrannies always feel the need to put their horrific enforcements in writing first, THIS is why.  Oligarchs understand that the law provides the slave with a means to rationalize his participation in the crimes of the state.  After all, if some gut-bloated bloodthirsty elitists in government etch their mad inbred ramblings into law, then we have no choice but to follow them, right?
4. The Need To Be Accepted: A slave seeks harmony not within, but without, even when that “harmony” is with a system that is designed to destroy him.  The viciousness of collectivism lay in its ability to comfort converts with atrocity.  As long as the slave feels as though he is a part of the machine, and accepted by the group, he cares not what the machine does to others.  Common arguments include; “We all have to live together, and so we must sacrifice our selfish individualism for the greater good…” or “Governments are here to protect us and we should do everything we can to make their job easier…”  Rarely if ever do they question if the system is legitimately helpful or harmful.  The system just “is”, it fulfills their need to be coddled, and that is good enough for them.  For all their talk of “unity” and the “greater good”, collectivists are for the most part deeply selfish.  They do not support or participate in the collective for the sake of others.  They do it to satiate their personal desires.

5. The Need For Control:
I suppose it’s ironic, but the average slave loves tyranny because it affords him a perceived seat at the table of power, perhaps for the first time in his entire life.  Collectivist slaves are often people who have felt weak and inadequate since childhood.  While honorable human beings fight this personal uncertainty by strengthening themselves physically and mentally, and improving upon their own character, the slave takes the easy route by joining with bureaucracy and living vicariously through its conquests.  Through the state, the hollow, cowardly, and stupid, have the ability to “show the world who’s boss”, and get revenge for a life filled with meaninglessness.

6. The Need For Structure:
An individual takes responsibility for himself, learning over time to provide his own structure which works at his pace and serves his unique needs.  A slave does not have the energy or the drive to do that, and so, he asks the establishment to tell him how he should live.  He will hold at face value the word of nearly anyone in a position of petty authority.  When confronted with those who go their own way, or who rebel against the cookie-cutter template for social participation, the slave sneers in disgust.  Independent rebellion is abhorrent to him, because the system provides him with his very identity.  To insult the fabric of the system is to insult who he is.  It’s pathetic, but common…
7. The Need For Vindication: Sometimes it is not enough for certain people to have their own world view.  The slave seeks approval for his world view at every turn, even if that world view is twisted by bleary eyed logic, and will go so far as to force others to agree with it so that they can feel safer in their beliefs.  It is natural for people to seek out others with similar views and ideals, but, it is not natural or healthy for those same people to use the government apparatus as a weapon to frighten the rest of us into submission just so they can become more confident in their ludicrous slapdash philosophies.  Slaves want a world without contradiction.  Laughably, everything they do is a contradiction.
