Rob Kall at Op-Ed News ran an interesting poll, and it does appear that Congress could dramatically improve their ratings, however, based on my personal interpretation of that poll and the subsequent comments, it appears that Nancy Pelosi allowing impeachment hearings to go forth and allow Bush and Cheney to be impeached are the key to Congress improving its ratings. It is the will of the American people, the population is tired of Bush and Cheney, their constant war rhetoric, and the destruction of the American economy while the wealthy of America are increasing their wealth – and the rest of us are going down in flames. It’s no longer a matter of speculation, but documented fact that Wall Street and America’s corporations, devoid of real oversight by the government, are raping and plundering the American and even the global economy.
Sadly, our own corporations have turned a blind eye to the American people, and in order to enhance their own wealth, have outsourced anything and everything to other countries to bolster their own bottom lines while the American economy is withering and dying before our eye – and it’s happening at a pace that is shocking and spells the eventual bankrupting (if we’re not already there) of our own economy. Other countries are getting richer, building-up armies and becoming prosperous off the backs of Americans – and our Presidency, Congress, and especially corporate America are allowing this to happen for only one reason – money. When we forsake our own countrymen and pour hundreds of billions of dollars in economies of countries that are not our friends, use the money to build weapons specifically designed to counter American weapon systems, it takes greed to the level of treason, at least in this writer’s opinion. Some large corporations that are not benefiting from this outsourcing binge are beginning to fight back, and the people should join them and understand that we cannot help others if we place ourselves in a position that we can’t help ourselves.
In what I believe is an unprecedented move, America’s airlines have posted a plea to the people to try and stop the bleeding as many are watching their industry fall into shambles and recognize, as it’s already been well-documented, that there is no oil shortage, and the high prices we see today are due to oil speculators, the corporate thieves who already raped America through ENRON, MCI, the Sub-prime Crisis, and any financial vehicle they can devise to plunder the wealth of America:
The airlines need your help!
Posted Jul 10 2008, 07:17 PM by Matt Koppenheffer
I typically skip over the periodic emails that I get from various airlines for being part of their frequent flier programs, but the subject line of the email from Delta yesterday — “An Open Letter to All Airline Customers” — caught my eye. And it’s a good thing I read it, because the letter brought it to my attention that there’s an evil group of speculators out there that are driving up oil prices and making all of our lives miserable (please be sure to note my sarcasm).
The letter ended with the plea “We need your help. Get more information and contact Congress by visiting www.StopOilSpeculationNow.com.” Interested to find out if the airlines actually have found conclusive evidence that speculators are responsible for pushing up oil prices I followed the link. Unfortunately, instead of evidence I got “While everyone is aware that supply and demand constraints contribute to price increases, there’s another force at work that, like gravity, is invisible yet powerful. This force is rampant speculation.”
I couldn’t help but conjure up the image of a bunch of Al Capone-like thugs sitting in a back room somewhere admiring their pile of oil futures contracts, smoking thick cigars, and having a hearty laugh at our expense. MUCH MORE – MUST READ ARTICLE!
NOTE: It has been proven there is no oil shortage and that oil speculators are driving-up oil prices. It’s too bad the airlines didn’t research or have the guts to spell-out the brutal facts, but they are attempting to be bipartisan and appeal to a wide-swath of America; as for myself, I prefer the brutal facts, and the sugar-coating is for our MSM to do, not those of us that are seeking the truth! Bush Blames Democrats For Oil Prices; More Lies From “The Commander In Thief”
President Bush and henchman Dick Cheney have opened the door to anyone that is willing to plunder our nation, and for all practical purposes, appear intent on eliminating our Middle-Class and transferring most of our wealth to other nations. Many people believe this is at the behest of the “New World Order“, and since I’m no expert on the matter, at this point I am unable to disagree or agree, simply because I haven’t spent the time to research the subject to a point where I’m comfortable giving it a yea or nay vote, however, from what I have seen, there appears to be a high degree of validity to their claims. We know that Congress votes the will of AIPAC, various special interest groups, and especially wealthy foreign corporations that constantly add to their campaign coffers. Lobbyists are nothing more than legally sanctioned con artists and a system where bribing America’s Congress has become legal and against the interests of the general public; to bring accountability back to government and stop the bribing of our Congress, we need sweeping legislation that will stop this form of bribery – but don’t expect it soon, as Congress will be extremely reluctant to kill the goose that is laying golden eggs into the campaign coffers and hidden bank accounts of those who vote for money rather than patriotism. If there were any justice left in our nation, there’s little doubt that a huge segment of our Congress could be indicted for bribery and actions that I believe amount to treason. Yes, the wording of this particular Op-Ed is harsh, but with Bush essentially “green lighting” an attack on Iran by Israel, it’s vital that the public take action and impeach Bush and Cheney before they are allowed to finish-off their destruction of America!
Bush backs Israel in plans to attack Iran
Published: Sunday July 13, 2008
President Bush is closer to approving an Israeli military strike on Iran, according to a source for the Sunday Times.
As the Times reported Sunday, Bush has given an “amber light” to an Israeli plan to attack Iranian nuclear sites with long-range bombing capabilities.
“Amber means get on with your preparations, stand by for immediate attack and tell us when you’re ready,” the Pentagon official said. MUCH MORE, Another Must-Read Article
An attack against Iran, whether it is started by Israel or the United States, who will back them up if Iran retaliates (which they have vowed to do) will take gas prices to a level where none but the wealthy will be able to afford it for recreational purposes, and America’s families, who make this country operate, will be making harsh choices on what has to be cut from their budgets just to make it to work, and those with fixed-incomes will be driven into utter despair. Furthermore, consumer buying will be limited to only those items that are able to sustain food on the table and roofs over our heads, and for millions, the ability to do both will be impossible. The Great Depression will pale in comparison, and the world’s premier “super-power” and wealthiest country on earth will enter into and stay in third-world status for years to come. We also can’t forget that an attack on Iran could escalate to World War III, so the impeachment of Bush and Cheney could easily be a life or death decision. It’s time for all of us to ramp-up our efforts and get these criminals out of office before they can finalize the destruction of the United States.
Op-Ed News’ Poll on Congress demonstrates that unless they impeach Bush and Cheney, it’s likely their poll numbers will remain worse that those of George Bush – a minor miracle itself that anyone or entity could be as loathed or hated as much as the “Commander in Thief”, but our do-nothing Congress has done what I thought was the impossible, actually doing a worse job than a “C Average President” that has betrayed everything that our constitution and Bill of Rights guarantees to each and every American citizen that is alive; staying alive and free may be a challenge if things keep getting worse, and a new article which has revealed the subject-matter of a secret meting of Congress should act to energize the public to demand change – or strike and refuse to work another day until our do-nothing Congress stands-up to a President that is dismantling the constitution and utterly ripping-apart the United State of America:
As America Collapses US Government Secret Plans Revealed
A secret meeting of Congress discusses immanent martial law.
The United American Freedom Foundation
March 13, 2008
On March 13th 2008 there was a secret closed door meeting of The United States House Of Representatives in Washington. In the history of The United States this is only the fourth time a secret meeting was held by the house. Even though Representatives are sworn to secrecy by House Rules XVII, some of the members were so shocked, horrified, furious, and concerned about the future of America by what was revealed to them inside the secret meeting, that they have started to leak this secret information to independent news agencies around the world. The mass media said almost nothing about the secret meeting of the House, mentioning only one of the items being discussed. (The new surveillance techniques that are going to be used by the U.S. Government to watch all American citizens). The story was first released in a newspaper out of Brisbane, Australia revealing the contents of the secret U.S. Government meeting and plans for America including all of it’s citizens. Shortly there after, David J. Meyer from Last Trumpet Ministries found it and made it more available for the world to see.
Here is what was revealed:
* The imminent collapse of the U.S. Economy to occur sometime in late 2008
* The imminent collapse of the U.S. Government finances sometime in mid 2009
* The possibility of Civil War inside the United States as a result of the collapse
* The advance round-ups of “insurgent U.S. Citizens” likely to move against the government
* The detention of those rounded up at The REX 84 Camps constructed throughout the United States
* The possibility of public retaliation against members of Congress for the collapses
* The location of safe facilities for members of Congress and their families to reside during massive civil unrest
* The necessary and unavoidable merger of The U.S. with Canada and Mexico establishing The North American Union
* The issuance of a new currency called the AMERO for all three nations as an economic solution.
Except for a few hundred thousand U.S. Patriots, most Americans have no clue what has really been going on within The United States over the past 100 years, and the sad thing is that most do not want to know the truth. The further you look into the rabbit hole, the deeper it gets. Go to any currency conversion site and convert U.S. dollars to Euros so you can see for yourself the massive decline of the dollar. Look at how much money is and has been spent on the Iraq War to date, ($12 billion per month). Look at our currency and when it stopped being backed by gold. MUCH MORE
If the sources I have quoted above are true and correct, which I believe they are, make no mistake, the very existence of our nation as a free and democratic society is at risk. In fact, the die has already been cast, and Bush and Cheney are readying their FEMA Internment Camps to imprison those who dare to speak-out and millions that might riot as our economy and everything that we cherish evaporates because of the malfeasance of Bush and Cheney. I have presented the bare facts, follow all of the links and educate yourselves and learn how dire our situation actually is – and then act, NOW, while there is still time. We stand on the precipice of total fascism and a collapse of our financial system; we are at the point where only the participation of every American that is aware of the truth can make a difference, and there is no time to second-guess or engage in petty differences between our alternative news sites, Liberal and Progressive Blogs, and the independent movement to take back our country. The “dogs of war” stand at our doorstep, and now that Bush has “green lighted” Israel’s attack on Iran, only a concerted effort by the Liberal/Progressive community has a chance of halting the plans of those who are enemies of our constitution and seek to dominate our society with an authoritarian style of government.
All that I have done is merged several pertinent articles and facts that most of the public remain unaware of; in order to save this nation from tyranny, it is necessary for all of us to act in unison, demand that Congress impeach Bush and Cheney, and above all, seek to disseminate this information as widely as possible. You do not need permission to re-print this article, as it is in the public domain and I write for my own family’s survival as well as that of the entire country. Cross-post this message everywhere you can, and at least try to awaken the millions of our countrymen who are still unaware of the facts and rely on the Mainstream News Media for their so-called “News” which is largely propaganda and lies, brought to us by a complicit MSM that will also suffer along with the rest of the country, but are muzzled by their owners from telling the American people the truth. Just as Congress has a duty to fulfill their oaths of office and impeach Bush and Cheney, each and every American has a duty to rise-up and attempt to save our country from tyranny and the devastation of war and martial law – and that can only be accomplished by individuals being aware that only “we” can stand in the way of a well-oiled attempt to successfully move our nation into chaos and anarchy.
Note: This comment was posted on Op-Ed News on the same article. It has a lot of information, and it appears “Forclosure Phil is a perfect “financial adviser” to John MCcain. One thing I have noted is that GOP appointees in the Bush White house are those who seem to get charges filed against then and have a history of ripping-off the American consumer:
Julie Johnson Committed to a Democrat President in 2008
Congress Has Known About Gramm Since at Least 2002
Congress did nothing. Phil Gramm and his wife belong in prison. It makes me extremely angry that someone under influence of lobbyist is without a conscious for the destruction to everyone’s live and no one will do anything to him.
MSM barely covers anything on McCain
Obama responds to McCain adviser Phil Gramm “whiner” comment – Great Video
An internal Enron e-mail dated Aug. 10, 2000, under the subject “CFTC Reauthorization” – sent by Enron’s top lobbyist Richard Shapiro to Steve Kean, Enron’s executive vice president – said the company needed to get Lay on the phone with Gramm so the bill could be passed.
While California consumers were getting fleeced, the new Bush administration shielded Enron from early accusations of market manipulation. President Bush personally joined the fight against imposing caps on the soaring price of electricity, buying additional time for Enron although the company’s house of cards collapsed anyway in fall 2001. [For details, see Consortiumnews.com’s “Bush’s Enron Lies.”]
Read the article on McCain & ‘Foreclosure Phil’. It has an excellent analysis between the severe damage that Phil Gramm, McCains chief financial adviser, has caused for everyone and “what has Rev Wright done that has affected your life.”
“2,620 YouTube videos call Wright, Barrack Obama’s former pastor, a “racist” and an “anti-American” – in comparison to only 58 that accuse Gramm of being an economic “manipulator” and financial “scam artist.” These results are curious. You’d think Americans would be more outraged over Gramm’s controversial economic policies than Wright’s racially charged sermons.”
But ex-Sen. Gramm – “Foreclosure Phil” - is a whole different story. We feel the aftershock of his reckless policies regularly.
Regardless of whether you’re liberal or conservative, socialist or capitalist, one thing’s very clear: Gramm’s policies are associated with the Enron scandal, the sub prime mortgage meltdown and the fiasco on the energy futures market.
