(From The Swamp) --

MAGNETOHYDRODYNAMIC DRIVE, THE CHAIN-PULL FLUSH TOILET, AND MUCH,
What can you give the Scots in return? A little attention.
This Thursday, May, 23rd, begins the Greater Greenville Annual Scottish Games, or Gallabrae.
Many, MANY people have worked very, very hard to make it a success. The actual games are held at Furman University
on Saturday, so if you just point your car at Furman, the Troopers and volunteers will do the rest. But this year, there are
other fun events which will be held throughout the city beginning Thursday- lots of music, a dance, and even a Brit car show.
The Greenville Scottish Games run Thur, May 23 - Sat, May 25.
I can't pretend that I am unbiased in these matters. I am a lifetime member of the
Charleston Scottish Society as well as a lifetime member of Clan Anderson, a participating member in
many Scottish Games throughout the United States, including the Charleston and Greenville games. My father was a
Member of a St. Andrews Society in the Midlands and I have many cousins who belong to St. Andrews Societies
throughout the State.
Scottish games are just plain fun. You don't have to dress up, but you can spend a fortune,
if you want to. The music depends on your taste - it can be as sweet as a violin or as raw as the skirl of the
bagpipes. The activities are the same - as sweet as a maiden's dance or as raw as the tossing of a giant rock
called "the stane o' strength." And the food is likewise - sweet as honey and sugar or as odd as haggis which I
will NOT describe, except to say that I love it and you eat it with scotch poured over it.
You can read more about it HERE, at the Gallabrae website. Treat yourself to some real
fun. It all starts Thursday! Alba go Bragh!
PRESIDENTIAL SPOKESMAN DAN PFEIFFER BEARS
STRANGE RESEMBLANCE TO ACKROYD FILM CHARACTER "CONEHEAD"
"We were just ignorant and stupid," isn't really a good excuse and that's what we've been given as the latest
leaked excuse to explain Benghazi, the IRS scandal, and the FBI screwup. Will the maisnstream media (MSM)
accept that excuse? God help us if they do!
No, really, God help us.

THE NEW GOLDEN RULE
In case you're wondering why the prices of gold and silver are going down when you know that
inflation is running away and the stock market is being pumped up on practically NO volume,
SwampfoxNews.com has discovered the answer, and it isn't pretty.
The answer is that the actual price for IN-HAND gold and silver is still high. What's gone
down are the SPECULATOR'S prices for spot gold and silver for quantities which are NEVER GOING TO BE
DELIVERED. We're not talking about FUTURES. This is a totally separate market. I know this sounds
crazy, but there really are two different sets of prices. Go out and try to purchase actual specie - silver
dollars, quarters, dimes or minted gold coins, even in large quantities - and see what the dollar price is. It surely
isn't going to be what the quoted market spot price is.
Now, silver - which is the market I watch - isn't going to trade at $51/paper for a silver dollar,
which was the high mark. But you WILL pay between $35/paper and $38/paper for it. That's the IN-HAND price.
The trader's never-to-be-delivered price is somewhere around $22.40 as of Saturday night 11:59pm. THEY are
the ones who are pushing the price down, again on unbelievably low volume.
Isn't this fun? Guess what else? The Russians are buying IN-HAND gold like crazy. So are the
Chinese, the Indians, the Germans, and the Brazilians. Guess who isn't? Well, we aren't, for sure. But what we may be doing -
and there is some really strong evidence here - is manipulating the quoted market never-to-be-delivered spot market.
But manipulating that market is not hard, if you're printing dollars and can supply your agents with whatever they
need to move it. We already know that the Fed is manipulating the stock market on tiny volume.
So what happens when the grownups finally take charge and the tax payers stop being raped and
the markets stop being manipulated? Equilibrium.
It will be a scary time of massive, temporary inflation, when everyone in the United States will
curse the name of Barack Obama. But with massive cuts in all new Government programs and rescinding all government
regulations since he got in office, it will be a temporary horror.
Obama said he wanted to fundamentally change America, and even if he didn't intend for it to be that way,
it's turning out so that everyone who had money is becoming poor and everyone who was poor is getting their money.
Either way, it will be a very, very good idea to have possession of some precious metals, because the
farce being perpetrated against the American people, whether intended or not, includes an attack on their life
EITHER BARACK OBAMA IS THE MOST IGNORANT PRESIDENT IN THE
HISTORY OF THE EARTH, THE MOST DISHONEST, OR THE DUMBEST.

Pope Francis and Toilet Paper
You knew it had to happen, but at least he waited a decent amount of time before
he was forced to play the European-born guilt-trip known as Liberation Theology. That's the completely
wrong-headed idea that the state can tax its way to your salvation by robbing you blind and giving
your money to the poor which will, supposedly make things equal. It's rubbish, of course, but what else
comes out of Europe?
There's a really good example of why Liberation Theology - also known as socialism -
doesn't work. It's taking place right now in the lovely South American country of Venezuela. You know,
the country that's benefited so much from Liberation Theology, already.
They're running out of toilet paper. You may have already heard. But if you haven't,
trust me, it's true. This isn't a plot by Sheryl Crow, either, it's all because of Liberation Theology.
You see, instead of letting the market set the prices for things, which would have shown
that Chavez's policies were complete doo-doo, he put in, before his timely death, price controls. Butter, milk,
lots of stuff, including the most important thing in the civilized world, continued to be affordable, but nobody
wanted to manufacture or import toilet paper because they didn't want to lose money selling it in Venezuela.
Toilet paper became scarce. Then, it disappeared from store shelves. Naturally,
in Obama-like fashion, Chavez's successor blamed everybody else, except the price controls - which is a function
of fairness under socialism - or, as we said in seminary, "Liberation Theology."
There is no need to be crude. Francis is, after all, the Pope, and a modest man. But
he is also known to be an intellectually honest man. Therefore, let us all pray that he heeds God's Parable of the Toilet
Paper, which is being loudly preached in Venezuela at this very moment, so that he can turn, instead to the miracle of
VOLUNTARY CHARITY, which IS the duty of ALL CHRISTIANS, not through the state, but
through each person giving, as God has given him or her so to do.
Liberation Theology is heresy of the worse sort, as the irony in Venezuela so
aptly shows. Let us pray it makes its point in the right places.
MORE PRESIDENTIAL IRONY
Obama shows off the might of America in Rose Garden fiasco
This is what you get when you don't plan well.. brave marines standing in the
rain, holding umbrellas over at least one worthless politician. The fact that the White House reaction
time was so slow, it could not react to a little rain shower in time to get everybody in doors from
the Rose Garden, ought to tell everybody just how inefficient their whole setup is. This is how
amateurs waste important American assets.
When I was a young man, I was treated to a series of lectures by a famous
archaeologist. During one of his lectures, he spoke on the importance of authenticity and how
hard it is to come by it in the world of archaeology.
To make his point, he told us a true story of a time he was in Cairo, looking
for antiquities. He was bargaining with an outdoor merchant over some incidentals, when he and
the merchant noticed a young boy steal a banana from a fresh fruit stall, many yards away.
As the boy fled toward them, the fruit merchant yelled for the local police to
arrest him. Now, the merchant's stand, where the archaeologist was bargaining, was at a turn
in the street, and as the boy rounded the turn, he began to point ahead of himself, saying, "There
he goes! There goes the thief! Catch him! Catch him!"
So many thieves, so few excuses..
From that moment on, the archaeologist never bought an artifact on the street,
and never immediately trusted any authority, again.
I cannot get the image of that small thief out of my head. It is the perfect PR
move to overcome a bad, BAD political situation. The problem for Obama, Holder, Axelrod, Carney,
and Clinton is that there are too many thieves and only one solution.
EVERYBODY! HAVE YOU HEARD? THE FED HAS
TURNED INTO A MOCKINGBIRD..
Have you ever wondered why birds repeat their beautiful songs and calls over and over,
all day long? Most scientists think it has to do with positioning. Birds need to know where they are, where the mates
are, where the food is, and where the competition is. Birds of the same feather, if you will, exist in a
world of mutual trust.
Enter the mockingbird. This crafty feathered fiend can mimic many of the calls of his
rivals. They, trusting they're hearing a positioning call, answer back. Then, it's only a matter of time until
the mockingbird raids the nest of the unsuspecting rival bird, eating their eggs or their young.
Mockingbirds are a lot like national banks who print money with no backing.
If you think of the U.S. Federal Reserve as a mockingbird and the national banks of the other
countries as rival birds, you get a pretty good picture of what is getting ready to happen. The mockingbird has
already eaten all the baby birds and eggs in American nests - there simply is not enough tax money to pay for all of
the money the Fed has created.
Now, the mockingbird has turned to the nests in foreign countries - their
national banks. But something disastrous is happening. The other national banks have begun printing
paper currency themselves - THEY'RE becoming mockingbirds, too!
No-one is alive today who remembers the beginnings of the Great Depression - ie.
when they switched from real money to paper. Oh, you see the talking heads, looking so profoundly
wise, but they're just like the wise heads in Germany and England and America, who absolutely KNEW
how to fix the problem, 15 years later, and COULDN'T DO IT.. just like now. So everybody printed
money and runaway inflation caused markets to crash everywhere, because, eventually, you have to
stop printing the money.
You are being lied to. The current government doesn't know how to fix a recession,
they never did. I have been saying this since before Obama was elected the first time. They do not
know what they are doing. And at some point, they have to stop printing the money. The mockingbirds
are literally eating each other to death.
KERMIT THE PROG IS GUILTY OF MURDER
It's not rocket science, but it is simple medicine: If a Progressive abortion Doctor snips the pine
of a newborn baby, he has committed murder, no matter what Planned Parenthood says. Kermit Gosnell,
the Progressive Doctor, is guilty of murder in the first degree for killing babies. And
if you send money to planned parenthood, which supports these late-term abortions, you
support the murder of live babies. You may not think you do, but you do. In South Carolina,
the hand of one is the hand of all. When Planned Parenthood eschews late-term abortions, then
opinions will change.. but not until.
THE WEB WE WEAVE..
Our body language expert says that Obama wasn't telling the whole truth BOTH TIMES
when he spoke about the IRS persecutions of TEA & Republican Party organizations and the Benghazi Crap-up,
during his little speech with Brit Prime Minister Cameron.
Here are the notes we received from the expert:
"Look at the video: His face is in classic threat mode - eyebrows rise - eyes wide - deep-eye -
direct stare nodding constantly - the perfect defensive bully condition. His voice raised and threatening. He
is virtually one step under bellowing. His words are illogical and make no sense even on a bullying level. It's
all personal. It's all defensive. Eventually, he catches himself, but it is too late, he has made the threat. He
again ends with the classic threat mode."
Obama has not said anything that has allayed any question as to whether or not his
administration was at the bottom of any of these political shenanigans and he SHOULD be trying to
get out from under the suspicion of which he is so obviously guilty. There IS COPIOUS "THERE, THERE," and
the Bully-in-Chief is doing everything he can to get a wall between the truth and the American
people... can't wait to hear what he says about Justice tapping the AP(!!!!!)
AND NOW, A CURRENCY WAR FOR MOTHER'S DAY..
These United States are about to get ourselves into a very serious global currency war. And
unfortunately, this is a war which we started. Many scholars, who have studied the amateurs in the Obama
administration, feel that we will lose this one, because the people of the united states have convinced themselves that
they are the most immune personages to world monetary conflicts.. Hell, we're America, aren't we? We won WWII.. We flew to the
moon! We outlasted the Soviet Union.
In a worldwide currency war, when one country shows it cannot help its allies with its current economic policy, and
it cannot keep its allies in line with monies and threats and favors, even it's allies can become enemies. How? By doing the exact same
thing that the originating country has already done. Lower the value of its money even lower.
But, afterall, WHY DO THIS, in the first place? Some say it is the last resort of poorly designed
[manipulated] ecnomies. If your economy is cheap you can sell to other countries cheaply. But this is foolish. For as your
exports become cheap, your imports become just that more expensive
As you know, the White house has been directing the Federal Reserve to print 80 Billion dollars a month more than
we actually have. The result has made the American Dollar pretty darn cheap all over the world. It has also made the entire world's
Well, this is where we are, now, besides the fact that none of our currencies contain
any of their original value. The last time we were serious about this, there was a great depression and the
Empire of Japan And these United States of American were about to go to war. It will be a very interesting
end of May.
I HAVEN'T WRITTEN ANYTHING ABOUT THE BENGHAZI
TESTIMONY THIS WEEK BECAUSE, SINCE I TOLD YOU WHAT MY SOURCES SAID, TWO
DAYS AFTER IT HAPPENED, ALL I CAN SAY, NOW, IS,
"I told you so."
HEADLINES OF 'REDEMPTION' NOT TRUE, YET
MSNBC, ABC, then CBS, and eventually NBC all had to admit that Mark Sanford just
beat the living crap our of Ms. Colbert-Busch in Tuesday's election. But then, they had to justify their
denominational worship of Barack Obama by saying it didn't mean anything, or that it was a vote SOLELY
against Nancy Pelosi.
It mean a lot of those things, but most of all it was a complete rejection of the
policies and actions (or lack, thereof) of Ms. Colbert-Busch AND the Democrat President. Do you
really think that the margin of victory
would have been that small, had it been Tim Scott, a known, deeply devoted conservative with impeccable morals
running against such a known progressive cripto-marxist?
But what Mark Sanford's victory isn't yet wasn't yet is the redemption of Mark Sanford.
Anyway, Mark Sanford has won, without much help from the NRCC - which may wind up being
a problem for them in the future - and he heads to DC with soon to be Argentine wife. What he CAN do with
his second chance is not be a pain in the butt. He can council with Trey and Jeff and Joe and the others and
be a strong wall against the worst federal ideas since the CCC.
Wednesday, as we begin to discover the depth of the incompetence and subsequent cowardice of
Hillary Clinton, we have proof that our state is going to need strong people in Congress to rout out the moral infection
she represents. If Mark Sanford is strong for South Carolina
and for America, then he WILL, at the same time, redeem himself from his tawdry acts that have embarrassed all of us. Then the
headlines will be true.
NOW THAT THE DEMOCRAT STATE DEPARTMENT EMAILS ARE PUBLIC
I get to say, "I told you so," again. One day after Benghazi, I told SwampfoxNews.com
readers that the President was lying. So now, Joe Wilson and I have been PROVEN correct. We have
also been shown that Trey Gowdy was correct in pushing Hillary Clinton for the facts about Benghazi.
What makes all of this so poignant, is that Obama just gave a speech at Ohio State
ridiculing Conservatives and Reagan libertarians for questioning the motives of a powerful centralized government!
AB REBUS RES PROBATUM.
(The facts have been proven from the events.)
IT IS, INDEED, A PUZZLEMENT
This isn't like hating professional basketball because gentlemen like Michael Jordan
don't play the game anymore. Nor is this like not voting for Albert Watson because your daddy is
a Democrat. It's not even like a choice between Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford where you knew
nothing about Carter or Ford but you knew who Ford associated with and didn't like Nixon.
You KNOW who Ms. Colbert Busch is. She is JUST LIKE HER BROTHER,
the progressive economic fascist (an economic fascist is the 1930's term used by Benito Mussolini
for what we call a "buddy capitalist," a left wing socialist who discovers that you can
fool all the people some of the time) who vents his venom in what is weakly called "comedy" on the inappropriately
named "Comedy" Central. We KNOW who Marshall Sanford is. From former married cheating
husband to former true Conservative Representative to former pain-in-the-butt Governor, he has
exhibited the kind of behavior that one might suspect could deter him from keeping and bearing firearms.
It is unfair that the Lowcountry has to have such a choice, but choose they must. No fearless
Trey Gowdey, who questions a lying Hillary Clinton face-to-face; or fierce Joe Wilson (who was right by the way
- Obama did lie and Immigrants ARE getting Obamacare); no clear-eyed Jeff Duncan who answers
his constituents every month, live. No, they get to choose between a person who is a known social elitist
remarkably undeserved snob who has no compunction about taking away the rights of those with whom
she disagrees, and a person whose actions at times are distasteful - at times laudable.
The question our Lowcountry cousins must ask themselves - those who will actually
vote, and that seems to be fewer and fewer these days - is should I vote for someone whose ideas and actions are ALL
untrustworthy, or, someone whose ideas and some actions are worthy but some actions are untrustworthy?
I love the Lowcountry and have given it a third of my life. The question they are faced
with is not an enviable one. But they are as responsible for the answer as surely as if they themselves
were the questioner.
A QUICK WORD ABOUT OUR SYRIAN FOREIGN POLICY
We don't really have one. What we have is a President who thinks he can effect foreign
policy by the force of his personality, alone. The idea is not mine. I'm not sure whether Rush or Krauthammer said
it first, but the idea is just as true, regardless of who originated it.
He doesn't realize that most countries don't care about the force of his
personality. What they do care about is the force of his missiles, the resolve of his will, and the might
of his allies. All of those things - ALL OF THEM - he has wasted on peccadilloes of peak and ill conceived
ideas. He has unwittingly snubbed our allies, reduced our armaments, and threatened to reduce more, made treaties to
bully our own people, and bowed to our competitors.
So, when Obama says he will draw a line or do anything, definitively, anywhere, the one thing
you can absolutely depend on is that he does not mean it.
ONE - DIMENSIONAL ECONOMY IMITATES 1930's POPULAR SONG..
Apologies in advance for the strong language, but it's hard to fight a majority media which wants
so desperately for things to be just fine, when it isn't.
This months jobs numbers are complete bullshit. NOBODY IS LOOKING FOR JOBS ANYMORE.
"It's only a paper moon - a Federal Paper-Money Fair..
But it wouldn't be make-believe, if folks believed in air."
The Stock Market is complete bullshit. The money pushing up the market is coming from projected
taxes which don't have a prayer of being collected - EVER. The Fed prints money on the HOPE
that the BONDS backing the printing will be paid. THE MONEY'S NOT THERE TO BACK IT
UP. IT'S JUST PAPER!
The Housing Market is complete bullshit. The Government is creating ANOTHER HOUSING BUBBLE by,
once again, giving credit to people who can't afford to buy houses - and that pushes up the price of housing.
Wake up, people!! This is a PAPER MOON ECONOMY. IT'S 1987 ALL OVER AGAIN (or 1933). HAVE
A NICE SUMMER. SEE YA AT THE FALL!
A Quick Intra-Day Trading Note
The Equi-Volume for all this "EXCITING" trading is still perilously thin, which
means, mostly the very-big-money machines are doing the trading and you will get crushed if you
try to time the market, right now. This market is for Obama and his Big-Business Cronies, not YOU.
Spend your time making sure the Obamacare Nullification gets passed and signed - THAT will, at least,
SAVE you money.
Does Anyone Doubt that Obama's Weaseling Over
Syria Doesn't Point to His Weaseling on Enforcement of Border Security on Any Immigration Bill?

This is Pseudoephedrine Hydrochloride. It is the best medicine there is for clearing
nasal passages. You have to be 21, show your drivers licence and prove you are not a felon, just to buy a very limited supply.
Never mind that some people need to take a lot of it in order to breathe. But the State of South Carolina
is afraid those choking people will boil it down into meth. So even though it would take a process that is so dangerous to make,
any intelligent person wouldn't dare try, even while drunk, the people who need more, can't get more.
This is the new "Plan B" pill. It lets your 15 year old daughter murder her baby without
your permission. She can buy enough of the darn things to bathe in.. over the counter. She can kill more babies than Hitler killed
Jews in the Holocaust, as long as they live inside her tummy. She can buy it over the counter and just swallow.
The moral of this little lesson is that your federal government, and every Democrat in South Carolina
think that it's more of a sin for you to breathe properly than to murder any given number of babies in a mother's womb.
Isn't medicine fun?
