Senate Arm Services Committee: White House “Policy of Disengagement” Exposed

This past Tuesday, three retired Generals, Marine General Jim Mattis, Navy Admiral William Fallon and a former CentCom Chief and former Army Vice Chief of Staff General John Keane, expressed the expanding security risk as a consequence of the Administration’s “strategy-free” stance.

General Keane’s statements left little doubt that were it not for Mr. Obama pulling troops out of Iraq the war against the insurgents was in hand. The Administrations idiotic notion of the “Arab Spring”, paired with the abandonment of Libya’s pro-western regime, ISIS would never have evolved into the threat it has become.

Keystone Shelved?

McConnell’s attempt at pulling the Keystone Bill out of debate died a quiet death with a 53-39 loss. Key to the failure was that key Senators went AWOL (Reid, Kirk, McCain, McCaskill, Mikulski, Moran, Rubio & Warner). Still it seems an explanation for WHY the Bill is being blocked and VETO-threats issued remains elusive.
The greatest threat to U.S. influence in the Middle-East is an over-abundant supply of domestic energy and so one need only look at Saudi Arabia’s influence as key weapon in the economic-oil war. Saudi Arabia will happily carry the load but only if the U.S. Taxpayer supports the scheme.
After all, as Americans are finally coming to understand, there was never ever an oil-energy shortage; there was and remains, simply put, an abundance of political-economic advantage and this is what dictates/controls Crude Markets.
Remember; all that controls is not always in need of a gun!

ObamaNomics & the New Economy

At some point this Nation will need to get cozy with fundamental economic realities and given the content of Mr. Obama’s speech I find the following two incredibly relevant:
1) A Globalized Economy is no economic advantage for a Nation that consumes and/or debt-loads in excess of its durable economic output. Technology or technological innovation, on its own, is neither a job creator nor is it a measure of economic capacity.
2) Wealth distribution, based on productive capacity, is the only effective mechanism for distributing wealth across an economy; without this key feature there can be no robust Middle-Class.
Facebook may be establishing the curve on integrating tech and have a market cap in multiples of Ford Motor Company, but there the economic dispersion ends; FB employs 8,500 whereas Ford employs over 300k and thousands more in collateral and support industries. Apple may be a powerhouse on tech-development and application/integration selling millions of iPhones however, they’re made in China and a great majority of their reserves are banked off-shore.
Yes, the U.S. may still lead the planet on tech-innovation and development, but it’s utterly meaningless in economic terms to the national economic matrix if the integration of tech, with the manufacturing processes occurs elsewhere. Having ignored these two simple truths is key to understanding the cause for why the distribution of wealth (domestically) is increasingly one-sided; it is the nature and inevitable outcome of a service-speculative based economy.
