"We are in the middle of a crisis much larger than most Americans could imagine, a portion of America can't even handle it, for that matter. The Bailout is an awful idea, and the majority of Americans realize that. There is even a provision that would grant Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson dictatorial powers, and that is obviously insane, but here we are debating it. It's like asking a dead man whether he wants to be buried or cremated; it's a non issue and Congress is just playing a game to distract the American people. We need to move ahead, and we should begin with taking our country back from the tyrants."
"Civil unrest resulting from from the financial meltdown is a distinct possibility, given the broad impacts of financial collapse on lifelong savings, pension funds, homeownership, etc.
The timing of this planned militarization is crucial: how will it affect the presidential elections scheduled for Tuesday November 4."
"The video is posted in full below with ten short clips for You Tube viewing. This interview is so important and explosive that we urge everyone to watch it. Spoonamore says that the GOP wanted e-voting to steal elections but now foreign governments will be hacking and the winner will be determined by the best hackers. He says that if the GOP wins the hacking competition, McCain will win 51.2 percent with three electoral votes over Obama, and it will be a stolen election."
"We received startling and sobering news at the Senate Democratic Policy Committee hearing I chaired on Monday, September 22. Former high-level Iraqi government officials gave first-hand accounts of massive, widespread corruption in the Iraqi government, corruption that has diverted millions of American taxpayer dollars to al Qaeda."

Let me cut to the chase. The biggest robbery in the history of this country is taking place as you read this. Though no guns are being used, 300 million hostages are being taken. Make no mistake about it: After stealing a half trillion dollars to line the pockets of their war-profiteering backers for the past five years, after lining the pockets of their fellow oilmen to the tune of over a hundred billion dollars in just the last two years, Bush and his cronies -- who must soon vacate the White House -- are looting the U.S. Treasury of every dollar they can grab. They are swiping as much of the silverware as they can on their way out the door.
No matter what they say, no matter how many scare words they use, they are up to their old tricks of creating fear and confusion in order to make and keep themselves and the upper one percent filthy rich. Just read the first four paragraphs of the lead story in last Monday's New York Times and you can see what the real deal is:
"Even as policy makers worked on details of a $700 billion bailout of the financial industry, Wall Street began looking for ways to profit from it.
(The sacking of Lesley+Hughes reeks of political maneuvering in the run-up to elections in Canada. Hughes was indeed incorrect in writing, "Israeli businesses, which had offices in the Towers, vacated the premises a week before the attacks, breaking their lease to do it." Hughes was apparently referring to the Zim transportation company which did vacate the WTC, but had announced their decision to leave publicly, six months before 9/11. This misinformation is propagated by others, as well. Hughes' short article was dredged up by political muckraking blog, The Black Rod - echo-chambered by right-wing blogs like this one by Jay Currie, until it finally caught the eye of the Wall Street Journal wannabe, The National Post. [Oh yeah, there was one token "Left" blog getting in the action.] Now, the blogs involved are preening after ending Hughes' career as a Liberal candidate. In regard to Hughes, Winnipeg writer Dan Lett says, 'Altar of Google ravenous for sacrifices', and I think he is right. Alas, like the brigade of Flying Monkey bloggers that took down Hughes, his general understanding of 9/11 is rather under-developed. 911blogger.com has no problem calling out "Holocaust Truthers" and those who mix racist lingo with their message... but is Lesley Hughes one of those? Or has she been sacrificed on the 'Altar of Google'? Below, Prof. Anthony Hall writes on many of these issues. -rep.)
Reflections on the Decision to Disqualify Lesley Hughes from Running as a Liberal Candidate in the Canadian Election of 2008

On September 26 the Canadian Jewish Congress commended the Liberal Party of Canada for dismissing Lesley Hughes, a federal candidate in a Winnipeg riding, for a factually wrong and ill advised comment she made in a paper delivered several years ago exploring a broad array of issues concerning the question of what really transpired to cause the events of 911.
Sylvain Abitol, Co-President of the CJC asserted, “Ms. Hughes crossed a line which cannot be crossed under any circumstances because there is no place in Canada for 9/11 Jewish conspiracy theories.” http://www.cjc.ca/template.php?action=news&story=978
I agree with the CJC’s contention insofar as we must strive to prevent ethnic or religious prejudices from colouring our interpretations of, and responses to, the assaults on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon seven years ago.

On Friday, September 26, the end of a week in which thousands of copies of Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West -- the fear-mongering, anti-Muslim documentary being distributed by the millions in swing states via DVDs inserted in major newspapers and through the U.S. mail -- were distributed by mail in Ohio, a "chemical irritant" was sprayed through a window of the Islamic Society of Greater Dayton, where 300 people were gathered for a Ramadan prayer service. The room that the chemical was sprayed into was the room where babies and children were being kept while their mothers were engaged in prayers. This, apparently, is what the scare tactic political campaigning of John McCain's supporters has led to -- Americans perpetrating a terrorist attack against innocent children on American soil.
I read the story as reported by the Dayton+Daily+News, but this was after I had received an email written by a friend of some of the victims of these American terrorists. The matter of fact news report in the Dayton paper didn't come close to conveying the horrific impact of this unthinkable act like the email I had just read, so I asked the email's author for permission to share what they had written. The author was with one of the families from the mosque -- a mother and two of the small children who were in the room that was gassed -- the day after the attack occurred...
Democratic and Republican congress members are sounding the alarm: tyranny is here.
- Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) says:
“I have been thrown out of more meetings in this capital in the last 24 hours than I ever thought possible, as a duly elected representative of 825,000 citizens of north Texas.”
Burgess asks the Speaker of the House to post the bailout bill on the internet for at least 24 hours instead of passing the largest piece of legislation in US financial history in the “dark of night.”
Rep. Burgess’ says, “Mr. Speaker I understand we are under martial law as declared by the speaker last night.”
I am an older college student. The Texas A & M - Commerce campus newspaper, "The East Texan", asked me late one night if I could submit an article as a guest columnist. The article was due the next day. I pounded the keys till past midnight, giving the article to the Editor who was still at her post.
The paper printed the hard copy on September 25th, 2008 with the article in the middle of page 2. The online edition is now available. "9/11 truth movement continues to grow" Here it is: http://media.www.theeasttexan.com/media/storage/paper1164/news/2008/09/2...
Anyone can place a comment. I welcome comments. It will give the article a long life. (Please do NOT start into esoteric stuff about the NWO or subjects that are way beyond the public's common understanding. Just simple, easy to grasp statements are best.)

A $10,000 9/11 CHALLENGE TO ARIZONA COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES
As you consider the distribution of $700 billion to the very banks and corporations that have gotten our country into the mess we're in now, we ask you to pause for a moment and consider what that money could do for the people who build our country from the ground up… for our schools, healthcare system, our states, cities and towns, alternative energy development, the homeowners who were the pawns of the banking and mortgage industry. As the Board of Directors of Farm Aid, we want to alert you to what a mere $1 billion could do in the hands of the people who grow our food.
What might he know, if this is for real?
Why and why now? Good questions.
I spent four years in federal prison. During that time I received dozens of requests for information and interviews on the subjects of Rudy Giuliani and the Giuliani Administration. Most were from news outlets: magazines, newspapers and television. Some came from people wanting to write about Rudy and wanting new information or to confirm existing facts. A few were from average Joes and Janes wanting some question answered. How they got my name or why they were writing me, I have no idea.
With one exception, and that was just days before I left prison, I never responded to a single request. Sure there were probably hundreds of times that I read an article, heard a newscast or saw a commentator pontificate on some point relating to Rudy Giuliani with which I wanted to respond, elaborate or correct. But I never did.
I don't know if everybody reading this believes in evolution, but let's say for a minute that it is true. Or at the very least God has put us here to evolve. The human species has dominated and survived as it has evolved over millions of years. During this great span of time many species have ceased to exist including the one's we have destroyed. Through all of this evolutionary activity, humanity has survived everything the Earth has thrown at it. We even have survived the cruel ideas acted upon us from our own imaginations. We kill, but we grow back. We kill again, but we grow back. The Earth has tried with every trick it has including the human mind to stifle us and possibly destroy us, but this is the very essence of evolution. We still exist. Why would anybody alive today think that they could devise a better plan of extinction for humanity than what has been wrought upon us thus far. It is futile.
