Code of Ethics for Government Service

House Document 103, 86th Congress, 1st Session – Passed by the Congress of the United States on July 11, 1958.

ANY PERSON IN GOVERNMENT SERVICE SHOULD:

I. Put loyalty to the highest moral principles above loyalty to persons, party, or Government department.

II. Uphold the Constitution, laws, and legal regulations of the United States and of all governments therein and never be a party to their evasion.

III. Give a full day’s labor for a full day’s pay; giving to the performance of his duties his earnest effort and best thought.

IV. Seek to find and employ more efficient and economical ways of getting tasks accomplished.

V. Never discriminate unfairly by the dispensing of special favors or privileges to anyone, whether for remuneration or not; and never accept, for himself or his family, favors or benefits under circumstances which might be construed by reasonable persons as influencing the performance of his governmental duties.

VI. Make no private promises of any kind binding upon the duties of office, since the Government employee has no private word which can be binding on public duty.

VII. Engage in no business with the Government, either directly or indirectly, which is inconsistent with the conscientious performance of his governmental duties.

VIII. Never use any information coming to him confidentially in the performance of governmental duties as a means for making private profit.

IX. Expose corruption wherever discovered.

X. Uphold these principles, ever conscious that public office is a public trust.

Kissinger Calls for Iran Attack if Color Revolution Fails

Infowars
June 21, 2009

It is sincerely creepy to watch master globalist criminal Henry Kissinger call for an invasion of Iran in this BBC new clip. Herr Kissinger says that if the color revolution fails — and it is now obvious the protests in Iran are orchestrated by the CIA and the usual “democracy” NGO suspects — an outside alternative will have to be used in the name of “regime change,” in other words shock and awe à la Baghdad.

It is significant Kissinger went on television and said this — it means flattening Iranian cities and killing babies is more than likely the position of the globalists if the “green revolution” currently underway fails. Kissinger is a big muckamuck Bilderberger and David Rockefeller minion.

Attacking Iran, as the neocons have long called for, will prove to be disastrous. The Iranians will shut down the Strait of Hormuz where around 60% of the world’s oil passes if they are attacked by the United States. This will take down the world economy overnight.

But then the globalists and banksters want to take down the world economy so they can impose their globalist banking and control structure. Attacking Iran and killing thousands will kill two birds with one stone.

Feds To Get Power To Target Websites Making “False Claims”

The Federal Reserve refuses to disclose where trillions of dollars in bailout money went and yet the FTC is more concerned about snooping into the financial affairs of bloggers who make a few bucks off affiliate relationships, according to new guidelines set to be introduced later this year that would give the government a foot in the door to regulate and shut down blogs for making “false claims”.

“New guidelines, expected to be approved late this summer with possible modifications, would clarify that the agency can go after bloggers — as well as the companies that compensate them — for any false claims or failure to disclose conflicts of interest,” states an Associated Press report.

Furious that struggling families are supplementing their income by having housewives write blogs about cooking, or individuals posting political opinions and funding their operation by carrying affiliate links to Amazon books, the new FTC regulations would ensure that “Any type of blog could be scrutinized, not just ones that specialize in reviews,” according to the report.

Federal Reserve Bank is financial system’s new “uber-regulator” – USATODAY

Excerpt from USATODAY.com

President Obama unveiled a stem-to-stern overhaul of financial industry regulation Wednesday, promising dramatic changes for banks, consumers, hedge funds and even the inner workings of the Federal Reserve. The ambitious proposal is designed to strengthen a ramshackle system of government oversight that failed to either prevent or mitigate the current financial crisis.

The new regulatory blueprint would “protect America’s consumers and our economy from the devastating breakdown that we’ve witnessed in recent years,” Obama said.

The sweeping proposal marks an emphatic end to an era during which top policymakers, notably including then-Fed chairman Alan Greenspan, celebrated the ability of market participants to largely police themselves.

FN- Did you read that double speak? They say bad government regulation caused the crisis. Now Greenspan is celebrating because they now “self-regulate”? We went from bad regulation to NO regulation? How does he pull this off?

Increased powers for Fed

Among the most controversial elements are expanded powers granted the Fed. The central bank, which controls the nation’s money supply and supervises the banks, would become the financial system’s uber-regulator. The Fed missed the housing and credit bubbles while they were inflating, badly underestimated their costs when they did pop and already has a full plate, critics say. With the Fed already engaged in numerous unconventional interventions in financial markets, some worry that adding a new role could backfire. (FN- You think?)

“I’d rather that the Fed stick to its knitting of conducting monetary policy and be the lender of last resort, as opposed to take on the role of supervision of individual institutions. … In this role, the Fed will be thrust into the center of controversy,” said Hal Scott, a professor at Harvard Law School and director of the influential Committee on Capital Markets Regulation, a private-sector body.

But administration officials say they carefully considered alternatives before opting to task the Fed. Countries that place key supervision authority outside the central bank don’t operate well in crisis situations, Geithner said.

“I do not believe there’s a plausible alternative that would create the necessary degree of confidence, accountability, responsibility and authority for protecting us against some of the risks we faced in this crisis,” he said. (FN- Giving ALL the power to the Fed to “protect us”, thanks Geithner)

A key target of the plan: financial institutions so large and interconnected, their failure could ricochet around the economy with catastrophic results. These “systemically important’ companies would be subject to more scrutiny and would need to hold more capital in reserve than under current standards. The government also would win new authority to handle “the orderly resolution” of them if they suffer fatal wounds.

“After this crisis, it’s clear that there are a number of financial institutions that are capable of being the domino that causes the rest of the financial system to fall over,” said Douglas Elliott, a former JPMorgan investment banker.

But some worry that investors will view any financial institution the government labels “systemically important” as effectively government-backed. (FN-Reread this line carefully)

That could enable such firms to borrow at lower interest rates, since they would seem better credit risks than smaller rivals not vital to the financial system, says the Brookings Institution’s Martin Baily, who chaired President Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers.

FN- Spread the word, the Federal Reserve is becoming the all powerful all knowing body in the world. The US has NO CHECKS AND BALANCES left because the Federal Reserve has the final say in all monetary and financial matters. Mind you, the banks that back the Federal Reserve are SECRET. We have a SECRET group of people controlling the inner workings of our so-called “free market”. Give me a break. Support TX Rep. Ron Paul’s bill to AUDIT THE FED. It now has an astonishing 234 co-sponsors. Whether you support it or not, it is very likely to pass. The Federal Reserve’s inner workings will be exposed, this they say will “destroy the Fed”. Get involved and READ!!!

A Civil War: Obama’s Gift to Pakistan

By Ali Khan.

June 17, 2009 “MWC” — -A civil war is brewing in Pakistan. Thanks to President Barack Obama, who is shifting the American war from Iraq to “the real enemies” operating from Afghanistan and Pakistan. Cash-strapped Pakistan could not defy Obama persuasion and decided to wage a war against its own people, the Pashtuns inhabiting the Northern Province and the tribal areas of Waziristan.

Decades ago, Pakistan waged a similar war against its own people, the Bengalis in East Pakistan. In 1971, the Pakistani military charged to wipe out Mukti Bahini, a Bengali resistance force, paved the way for the nation’s dismemberment. In 2009, the military is charged to eliminate the Taliban, a Pashtun resistance force. History is repeating itself in Pakistan—as it frequently does for nations that do not learn from past mistakes.

With a willful caricature of the Pashtuns, who are successfully resisting the occupation of Afghanistan, Obama advisers are forcing Pakistan, a subservient ally, to help win the war in Afghanistan. This help is suicidal for Pakistan. The civil war will unleash intractable sectarian, ethnic, and secessionist forces. As the warfare intensifies in coming months, Pakistan will face economic meltdown. If the civil war spins out of control, Pakistan’s nuclear assets would pose a security threat to the world, in which case Pakistan might forcibly be denuclearized.

Dashing Fabricated Hopes: The Meaning of Ahmadinejad’s Victory

By Pierre Tristam

June 14, 2009 “Pierre’s Middle East Issues Blog” — It’s been a little weird, if not embarrassing, to witness the reactions of the American press to the Iranian election in the last 24 hours.

There was the initial rush of expectation–that “change” was as much in the Iranian air as it had been in the American last fall, an equivalence so wrong on so many fronts that it managed to obscure the essential truth of the Iranian election: there never was a significant ideological difference between Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Mir Hossein Mousavi. Only a tonal one. But the Los Angeles Times was content to blare this headline: “Iranians ready to decide presidency — and maybe much more.”

There was the added irony of the LATimes’ sub-headline: “The winner will play a key role in possible talks over Iran’s nuclear program and support for militant groups,” the implication being that if Mousavi were the winner, maybe he’d rein back the militants. But it was Mousavi who, as Iran’s prime minister in the 1980s, helped build those militant groups into international terrorist forces, sending money, weapons and manpower to Lebanon to beef up Hezbollah and telegraphing their targets, including that string of American and European hostages Hezbollah held for most of the decade—and Mousavi traded for, haggling over anti-tank missiles and money with Oliver North and Bud McFarlane, in the infamous Iran-contra affairs.

Still, the paper in Los Angeles, not to mention the New York Times and the Washington Post, have blithely referred to Mousavi as a “moderate” throughout the election campaign, accepting at face value his apparent conversion, if only because he kept his antipathy for the United States relatively silent.

But Slate’s Samuel Rosner was closer to reality: The Iranian president isn’t the one who decides Iran’s fate, or foreign policy, or domestic policy, for that matter. It’s Ali Khamenei, the “supreme leader,” who does. But the big papers kept up the charade (“As Iran Votes, Talk of a Sea Change,” went The New York Times), as if willing the fantasy.
