Wily Coyote Goes Over the Fiscal Cliff

Well all the lies about a done deal really ratcheted up the US Stock Market for the day.  One minute after the NY Stock Exchange closed, the US House of Representatives announced that they will not be voting on any alternative budget or tax increase this evening.  Great timing !  Tonight is the 19th of Tevet...nothing special about the date today.  But alas it is Pope Gregory's New Years Eve, now New Year in Israel.  Tomorrow is just another day here.  kids off to school.  people working hard.  Yet, for whatever fortuitous reason, G-d scheduled the American Fiscal Cliff for this very evening, and walla, America went off the Cliff.

What was the trigger?  Obamanation called Sen. Mitch McConnell in the morning of December 31st saying that he will not sign any bill that McConnell and Reid/ Biden agree to unless he eliminates the automatic spending cuts that Obama signed into law last year!!  What a surprise!  The Man of perpetual falsehood played footsie with a process of reaching agreement by moving the goalpost. Besides a Man of Sin, we should call him all the names in the Holy Book of Daniel.  He played his role of a man of pure chaos today very well.  11th horny dude.  Obamanation that Makes Desolate.  The half Muslim (clay) and half Xtian (iron) feet creature from the Black Lagoon.  The Primordial Snake from the Garden of Eden.  He is every single one of these.  Yet, there is one piece of good news from all this.  Whenever Edom has a great fall even if it is over a Cliff, Israel always rises. That is a Heavenly promise.

In 1967 at the beginning of the summer, Yerushalayim was re-united.  That very summer the Grateful Dead from San Franfreako took there counter culture theme of free love and sex on the road and launched the American Summer of Love effectively destroying American culture from within.  In its purest sense The Grateful Dead was truly grateful to whom (take a guess) that they had brought American Civilization to a tipping point from which it would never really recover.  So in the Summer of Love in 1967, Western Civilization had a great fall, but Yerushalayim began a 50 year rise out of its ashes.  So now that America seems to have gone over the Fiscal Cliff....we shall see how quickly the next rise of the Jewish people occurs.

I know that they will try to claw their way out of this chasm either on January 1st or 2nd, but I am writing this now anyway.

When you write "walla"," I think you mean voila. It's a French word that is used in the same context.

Also, by now, you must know that they did reach a last minute deal, but according to Peter Schiff, this is the worst case scenario. Reaching a deal is actually going to be worse for America than not having reached one, because they are delaying the inevitable until even more debt is accumulated.

Any news from Israel about the US is warped. There is no understanding here in EY about how a legislative branch with a bicameral legislature even works. All day Sunday and Monday, the US Senate was talking with itself. The Senate Majority Leader and then the Vice-President were talking with the Senate Minority Leader McConnell. The House of Representatives was not even consulted except on a peripheral basis. Now the Senate has passed a bill ignoring or canceling the automatic spending cuts for the time being. The House of Reps is caucusing tomorrow on January 2nd, but they simply will not go for this....unless they simply cave again which they have done so before. Of course this is a fluid situation. But these automatic spending cuts had been agreed on by this so called Presidential guy holding that office and the Congress earlier last year. (I believe the agreement had been made at the last increase in the debt ceiling. If I am wrong please correct me.) Also the bill which the House originally rejected before Xmas only allowed tax increases on those earning a million dollars per year or more. Now the House has to face a bill where tax increases start at $450,000 per year and again with minuscule spending cuts. If they cave, we will not know until sometime tomorrow after the New Year. But technically the US has already gone over the Cliff as of this past midnight.

Accordingto Rabbi Shabsai Bulman son of rabbi Nachman Bulman ZT"L the decline began in in the early 60's and the speed climaxed in the 1967 area but still continued with all the yerida intact, is there a kesher between the the Cuban missile crisis or assassination of Kennedy and the first stumbles of Edom? Perhaps fallout from forcing us from Aza and the Sinai after 1956?

For those who don't know increasing the debt ceiling is simply authorizing the current debts to be repaid nothing more, failure to pass this debt ceiling means the US is in default AKA missing their first credit card payment.
Very bad for the credit score, if people get scared they will want more ribbit(% interest) for the money they send to the treasury and exchange for bonds. If the US which is paying less than inflation interest rates effectively taking payment to exchange cash(promise of value paper) for interest bearing treasury promissory notes, they set the interest % which affects how dearly other loans are priced.
If people loose faith the rate will ahve to go up or they will have to print money(digital) to buy bonds at the Fed auctions to bid the interest rates down.

The whole concept of "fiscal cliff" was a charade made up by politicians, it is totally meaningless. Funny how they always seem to strike a deal in tge last minute? Btw, i love the Dead, their music (and lsd) has a lot to do with why im frum today: )

Ok, an Update: Apparently the House of Reps. Republicans are not going to roll over and play dead. The vast majority of the Republicans in the Lower House have voiced strong reservations about agreeing to a major tax hike with virtually no spending cuts. Since Obama and his Democratic henchmen in the Senate removed the previously agreed on sequestered budget cuts in "the tax increase on the wealthy" bill, the House is not going to roll over and play dead....so it seems. This is always open to change.

Yet, now we know whom the President will blame. He will blame the only politically conservative Jew in the US Congress, Eric Cantor.

If The House of Reps. starts the amendment process on this time sensitive "compromise" where the US Senate spent two full days talking to themselves, The House of Reps. might be fortunate to pass an amended bill by 2am as the Senate did last night. Then it goes back to the Senate for consideration. The Senate will be in chaos, not knowing how to react to this amended bill as the financial markets open around the globe. How will the financial markets react?? What happens next? We will leave it in G-d's Hands. Happy 20th of Tevet, and onwards.

The Republican leadership has been caucusing since 5:15pm EST in Wahington DC. They have a huge decision to make. If they cave and agree to simply bring the Senate bill to a vote as is, the world will wake up tomorrow and go ho hum. Life goes on. The Republicans in the House caved again.

If they decide to amend the bill and send it back to the Senate, Chaos Chaos Chaos. Funny, all the Senators left the Capital in the morning assuming that the Republicans in the House would roll over and play dead. Well we shall see in a few minutes if the world will actually change tomorrow after all.

Well it is late here. But the news just came in that in order to amend the existing bill from the Senate 218 Republicans out of 245 of them will have to agree on an amendment. Politico seems to think that that is unlikely. I don't know. Anything is possible. But the pressures are tremendous. If they amend, there will be chaos on Wednesday morning. And the Republicans will be blamed. So many of them are thinking that perhaps they should wait until the Debt ceiling has to be raised in less than two months. Yet, believe me the pressure to raise the debt ceiling without fighting for real cuts will be on them again. On the other hand it will not come at the cost of the largest tax increase in American History. So go figure. Looks like that the Man of Sin may have won. Also the new House will have 11 fewer Republicans, and it will be harder to fight the Evil Man with only 234 Republicans. Go figure what they will do. But for now unless they come up with 218 Republicans to amend the existing bill, there will be no chaos at daybreak tomorrow.

Well, according to world news, and not the corrupt Israeli news, they just passed the bill. So no cliff, the world goes on as usual and the can has been kicked down the road. Just as I stated.

Yes, the can has been kicked down the road for less than 60 days until the Debt Ceiling vote. The vote in the House was 257 to 167. The bill was supported by 172 of the 190 Democrats in Congress and only 85 of the 245 Republicans in Congress. 151 Republicans voted No. So Speaker of the House Boehner allowed a bill to come to the Floor of the House for which almost 2/3rds of his fellow Republicans were against. I have no idea what this means for his future as the Speaker of the House. Will he be replaced by Eric Cantor who voted No on this bill? Yet, with the largest tax increase in American history looming without a bill being passed Tuesday evening, Boehner took his lumps and went home. The next crisis is raising the Debt Ceiling within 60 days, and automatic sequestration on spending was delayed until then.

Here are more details:

In the end it is G-d who decided to delay this fight for 58 to 60 days. At this time in history, the main players are simply pawns on His chessboard. So for now Wily Coyote crashed but crawled out of the canyon to live to fight for the next 58 days.

And Ariel Sharon is still in storage between worlds to arise for what job? Is the shepard to do teshuva, to do gerus?

I don't know if the Foolish Shepherd will return or not. I don't know if he is in Kaf Kelah or if G-d will miraculously bring him back. It would take a major miracle to bring back The Shepherd (the gilgul of Herod the Great). I can't see why G-d would want to bring back Herod to rule. Herod was a convert from Edom who married Jewish women within the three generations permitted for gerim from Edom. Gerim from Edom normally must wait three generations to marry into the Klal.

The Redak said that the precursor to the End of Days Foolish Shepherd was Herod the Great.
