Either way the whole letter sounds like a veiled threat to congress, raise it or else, we’ll just continue to rob Peter to pay Paul via the Federal Retirement System for a couple of months and then be right back where they started.

“Although the U.S. government owns other assets, such as gold, there are prudential or legal limitations on its ability to sell these assets. Selling the Nation’s gold to meet payment obligations would undercut confidence in the United States both here and abroad, and would be extremely destabilizing to the world financial system. With respect to financial assets acquired as part of the response to the financial crisis in 2008 and 2009, Treasury has already sold most of these assets and is conducting an orderly wind-down of the remaining investments. A fire sale of these assets, however, would be disruptive and would harm taxpayer interests.”
“Treasury has already sold most of these assets..” [assets = gold]
Just wondering what’s left in Fort Knox ?
or is Lew talking about the financial assets acquired during the financial crisis of 2008 to 2009, i.e. Stimulus wasted on Solyndra and the like?

God Bless the Marines. This Marine is doing his duty whether he likes it or not. I think he’s probably holding back vomit in his mouth (marines can do that!) for the situation that he’s in but still does the job! However, let’s hope this is the last time we ever see a U.S. Marine hold an umbrella for any self serving president. By the way, That Marine looks ten times more sharp, professional and respectable than the pres.

I don’t post here often, nor do I click on many links posted here, but you should all really look at this link posted by KAIROSTIME. It is quite good and informative.
Dont worry Maryland, I’m sure the legislature will make sure that the law has exemptions for movie production companies to still be able to use fake “assault weapons” while filming their violent movies on your streets. Thats one amendment Cuomo is considering here for NY’s SAFE Act (not) Law. I feel safer now! I’m sure they’ll also exempt law enforcement too. But who knows? NY passed their bill in the middle of the night without any debate and forgot to exempt them because they were in such a hurry to ram this bill through. Reminds me of Pelosi…”Ah, we have to pass the bill so we ah, can see what’s in it”! When the 2nd Amendment falls, the rest will soon follow… Hang on gang

Excellent Rally, Ive never felt more safe downtown. Grew up here north of Albany, hunted, fished, target shooting in the Adirondacks and in the southern zone. Just can’t believe the change in many of our elected officials attitudes towards law-abiding New Yorkers guaranteed 2nd Amendment Right. We’ve got to keep up the fight! (Or Move) Oh yeah… I don’t think anyone died to my knowledge!
I think the reality is setting in on even the most liberal. It always works this way as you get farther away from emotions on this issue. Thank God for groups like the NRA who don’t cower down to the media. David Keene rocks, and I thank him for standing strong against the MSM tactics.
It is GOOD to see like minded people come together and show our support for OUR FREEDOM !!!
Did you see Sen. Diane Feinstein sucking up to Piers Morgan and his propaganda. “You’ve Been Wonderful” ( http://www.thedailycandidate.com/video/2013/feb/feinstein_piers_propaganda.html )
It makes you sick. They both deserve each other and need to get away from our God give, Constitutional Rights.
They should have all carried AR's and AK's and vowed to stand the line if one officer tried to arrest anyone. A show of solidarity is good but a show of force is great.
The Officers/Troopers that were there were very friendly and at the same time bored....because we don't act like Liberal self indulged maniacs. It was a great experience to be there, and the estimates I have seen on TV are all VERY LOW. We had between 15 and 20 K people there according to the Trooper in charge.
Why is Remington still in NY? They need to move; why support a corrupt 'Progressive' government with your tax dollars. Don't buy Remington until they leave NY!!
Just curious... were there any reported rapes? Drug abuse? People crapping on police cars? Theft? Come on now, everyone knows that when you get a group of these domestic terrorists together all hell breaks loose! Probably not- you probably left the area cleaner than when you came.
I don't see any gun deaths reported at the event?
Black powder is still legal: http://youtu.be/16SIvVKtuks
I assume the next step in the holding the line in this armed confrontation would be to open fire the moment LEO's made any attempt to arrest and/or disarm the crowd.
Remember there is no middle ground when armed opponents are in confrontation. Using the deadly force is the only choice except for disarming or retreat.
What military unit comprises an number of about 5000 soldiers?
We are legion,
Or in modern terms, a brigade sized unit, comprised mostly of highly trained and practiced marksmen.
@yoursensi(milla), you need to get your nose out of the High Times and put the bong down. I reported your comment as "pathetic". I just thought it needed to be pointed out.
See there you go YOURSENSEI/MONICNE....fixating on male sex organs again. You really can't help yourself can you sport? You project these fantasies constantly. I know..I know..you tried for a little while to refrain but you slipped up again. Slave to your compulsions.
By NBC's estimate, 13 people attended the rally.
People need to wake up to who these "Representatives" really are.
They work for the International Banksters.
People warned us.
“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of today.”
- Theodore Roosevelt
“This [Federal Reserve Act] establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President Wilson signs this bill, the invisible government of the monetary power will be legalized….the worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency bill. From now on, depressions will be scientifically created.”
- Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr., 1913
"When the Federal Reserve Act was passed, the people of these United States did not perceive that a world banking system was being set up here. A super-state controlled by international bankers and international industrialists acting together to enslave the world for their own pleasure. Every effort has been made by the Fed (Reserve) to conceal its powers but the truth is — the Fed has usurped the government!”
- Congressman Louis McFadden
"The real truth of the matter is that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government since the days of Andrew Jackson.”
Once sheeple take their blinders off, they can see that NBC is actually
GENERAL ELECTRIC TELEVISION
It's an indoctrinating tool owned by the elite.
"The American people don't believe anything until they see it on television."
- Richard M. Nixon
You're wrong you need only stop the arrest and remind the police their duty is to the Constitution NOT the law makers. If police draw their guns then an armed confrontation could ensue. And if police feel their duty is to law makers and not the Constitution maybe armed conflict would be the best results. This communist push and over reaching governmental power has to be stopped at some point. Those pulling the strings will need a message sent to them that America will not stand for this. That a short life of freedom is better than a long one of slavery.
It hit me this morning, the second I woke up.
DHS bought 1.6 Billion rounds of hollow points.
Because the long term goal of the Politicians (Bankster minions), are to SEIZE ALL GUNS eventually !!!!
This is why they have prepared !!!!
These assault weapons bans and magazine regulations in the works, are a test.
If the American people allow these unconstitutional laws to be passed, they surely will
NOT stand up to a complete ban.
We already allowed them to SEIZE our 4th Amendment rights, because 19 Saudia Arabians attacked us.
They already consider us pushovers.
How do you know that Remington isn't looking for a place to relocate its factory's?
IF this administration had had the BALLS to try to pass a law like this in the South there would have been tens of thousands of people rallying BEFORE that law got passed.
This New York turnout in the face of this legislation is pathetic.
Hang in there NY, we are all mad but not Crazy. We have your backs and will not surrender our Country or COnstitution. God Bless the USA and her true Citizens.
