Is "Bankrupt" Detroit, in which "a judge [U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes] in Michigan ruled that the bankrupt city of Detroit can impose cuts to its municipal pension plans" the new paradigm for dealing with "municipal bankruptcy" for the rest of the US? Now remember the "fictional municipal corporation government called the “City of Detroit” bankruptcy is a huge lie! Of course there is no mention of what Clint Richardson refers to as "the legal crime operating behind these horrific scenes and reported in the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR)."
“In case you haven’t heard, municipal bankruptcy is now all the rage. When smaller municipal corporations (only corporations can declare bankruptcy) had little resistance as test cases for these outrageous claims of fraudulent bankruptcy and default, the larger municipalities gained the confidence that the financially illiterate cesspool of people as citizens don’t know there heads from a hole in the wall when it comes to the financial reporting apparatus of government. The people were determined to be sufficiently ignorant of even the basic checking account balance of the general fund in their local governments and school districts, let alone the massive collective government investment scam robbing them of the entirety of their wealth, making it reasonable to assume that these municipal corporation’s financial position would likely never be challenged by that clueless mass of the indentured. And so the latest trend of conspiracy and fraud against those debt-slaves continues… this time in the not so great City of Detroit.In other words, Detroit is a test case for the rest of the nation in the ongoing agenda of the predatory class to steal our wealth.
San Bernardino,, California, you're next.
“The ruling comes as a bankrupt California city, San Bernardino, edges closer to a possible legal showdown with CalPERS over the sanctity of public employee pensions. Although the decision in Detroit doesn’t directly affect what happens in San Bernardino, legal experts said it will strengthen the California city’s hand as it tries to reduce its multimillion-dollar pension obligations.
“In short, the Governor of the great corporate State of California is lying to his taxpayers through the act of omission of these CAFR facts, by only referring to a hand selected portion of that CAFR, which is called the State’s annual budget report. While this should be tried as perjury, the laws of the State/Federal government protect him from this ever happening.
To help in your understanding, let’s say that you were to have a checking account with $1,000 and a savings account with $10,000 in two different banks, and that you only reported to the government that you had $1,000 dollars as your net worth because you don’t want to use your savings account to pay bills (taxpayer obligations) to government. You’d be audited and put in a federal debtor’s prison. But for government, the simple designation of “non-governmental” or “non-taxpayer” income and investment returns allows them to hide all of this wealth from the people and the “Budget Report”, while never mentioning the funds and wealth in the CAFR report. The only difference is that government does this legally – because government makes its own laws!
Why do they do this?
The answer is simple, really… TO JUSTIFY THE CONTINUATION OF, THE RAISING OF, AND CREATION OF NEW TAXES!!!

“...for this is the lie that is propagated to the public about the nature of pension funds. I would suggest you watch my documentary, The Great Pension Fund Hoax for a detailed look at pension funds.
In reality, the 270 billion dollars that is invested in CalPERS and the 200 billion that is in CalSTRS pension funds has nothing to do with paying for benefits, which total about 9 billion each year.
Calpers made a 27 billion gain in its investment pool after all benefits were paid to employees and retirees. So do you still think that these assets as investment funds (pension funds) are “liabilities:? How can they be liabilities if they are making massive profits after all liabilities are paid???
The truth is that pension funds grab TAXPAYER money out of the taxpayer base in order to “match” or pay for pension obligations – laws created to steal money and put it in the pension system. For every employee of the State, more money gets exacted from the public to pay into the pension system.
But here is the kicker… the employee has no equity in that money! While he or she can quit or get fired and take back what he contributed to the fund, the entire taxpayer contribution stays in the fund, and the employee cannot touch it. millions and millions of federal and state employees, each one supported by taxpayer money, and some pension funds do not require employee contributions, only government (the people) fund them with taxmoney. Ive seen the ration of contribution from 100% matching of employee funds to 45oo% of matched employee funds from the tax base. The employer is government and government is funded by taxmoney.
Now, with that said, it is your perception that is the problem. You perceive the good intentions of the pension system, and don’t comprehend the true corporate nature of it. You find justification for the above to support “retirement”, even though the purpose of pension funds was to extract taxmoney and invest it worldwide to build up the entire global economy for which pension funds are the largest holder of stock. And you, who may or may not receive a pension, believe that I (who does not recieve a pension) should pay for those employees who do. Why should I pay tax money to support a pension system that does not benefit me in any way, shape, or form, and in fact harms me by consolidating power and wealth into government hands?
Finally, you should know that if (or when) States begin to declare bankruptcy, which in my opinion is part of the master plan to rape the people once again, the pension system for that State will be taken, and no employees will see any of that money for retirement. Remember, a “contribution” is literally the act of giving away your money voluntarily. You do not own the money you have contributed, and can only get it back if you live long enough (which the fund hopes you don’t) and if the corporation doesn’t go bankrupt.
Again, the pension fund balances are not liabilities. The fund does what is called projections to guess what future liabilities will be. But as of today, any funds within the pension fund are profit.
I hope this helps…
