Did Main Street Get a Fair Shake? Time will Tell

 

DID THEY LISTEN AND DO THE BEST THEY COULD FOR THE AMERICAN TAX PAYERS?

TIME WILL TELL! 

The servers were down most of the day, email was flooding the House to the point where it could not function. It has been reported that just as many wanted  the bill passed as those who emailed that were against the bill. Who knows?  Perhaps it is as we have said many times, Most people vote with their pocketbook. Issues and long term possible consequences are set aside for the moment

 Many of our reps also appear like SCARLET OHARA IN ‘GONE WITH THE WIND’..I’ll think about it tomorrow! at leasr with the possible future results.

I keep hearing that song..I need a Hero

Many Economists are saying that this will avert the crisis for at least a year versus the endurance of pain for 5 years. Who really knows? Now that it is done, let’s hope and pray that those we have put in office wil not repeat their offences and please remember who they are representing and most of all, whose money they spend.

Let’s hope it does not include little specialty items in the form of earmarks. Let’s also hope they read all 450 pages and did not forget the fine print.

The People Have Spoken- Accountability Now!

The squeaky wheel gets the grease! You have spoken loud and clear not only to your representatives! They forgot that it was your money, your children’s and yes, your grandchildren’s money! While we all realize we need to do something. We also realize that it needs to be on the side of us. The American people. How do they do they get it on our side? Rewrite the bill as a lending authority, a work out bill. Get rid of the Golden Parachutes…no Nancy, you did not get rid of them. The bill voted on today exempts New people on board from getting a Parachute! The ones there now still have them! When the American people really understand these bills, especially the first one..Katie, bar the door!

We do know that many were illegal immigrants, many had no income, nothing down, many clearly did not qualify. You were the ones that made the bad loans, The Banking Community took the risk, we don’t want to pay for your greed! With that said, did our representatives make sure those kind of loans would be hindered in any way? I doubt it. This is about a lot more than houses.

The Democrats don’t need the Republicans to vote on this bill. They are the majority. They don’t want to take the heat if it does not work..and people there are no guarantees that it will work. Thank God 133 of the Republicans and 95 Democrats had some common sense. Thank God that some Republicans balked at the first bailout bill and got some changes in there. Maybe there is still hope that we may have some statesmen left in Washington.

When 165 Economists say “wait a minute, let’s look at this a bit harder, it pays to listen. Link below at bottom of page:

Most families have a budget they have to work with, to live on. We know money does not grow on trees as you have been led to believe. We expect the government to live within their budget. How can you ask us to sacrifice when you are continually putting pork or earmarks in bills? Nothing seems to get passed unless it’s a ‘you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours.’ Compromise is important. Bi-partisanship is important. Greed and stupidity is not!

Bailout Fallout-

So here we are, feeling like we want to scream out the window and yell “I’m mad as h*ll and I’m not gonna take it anymore’ like Howard Beale in the movie ‘Network’. Many are a bit stunned. Could this really happen so quickly, almost overnight? No, it did not happen overnight. We just have not been listening/reading the signs nor have we bugged the cootie out of our Reps. Until now. Now we are ringing their phones, emailing, writing. We are frightened. We are Mad as H*ll!

What will happen? What did happen? How did we get to this place? What does it mean for our families? These are the questions we are asking. Does anyone in Government believe truly that this will fix the problem? Yes and no. No one really knows the answer to that one. Read the excerpts below and the links to see how we got here. In addition, read the links in blue that are within the post.

Hey, when you are calling your reps, if there is something objectionable that you think is ridiculous for us to have to pay for..let em know would ya? There really are some doozies in there. It’s got quite a bit of self interest with a lot of pork thrown in that has nothing to do with housing. Check it out. Get sick and tired enough to reenergize to scream at the buffoons we elected to keep watch. Tell em you want to be looked out for in the payback! Does it not make you wish you had lived just a tad above your means…just saying.. Some of us now feel foolish for clipping coupons and trying to save. I should have had a V8! A V8 engine that is. Don’t let em off the hook..no recordings. no closed until further notice. Take no prisoners!

Clinton Praises Sarah Palin, Calls McCain a Great Man

UPDATE:

 For a moment the former president almost sounded like a surrogate for the Republican presidential nominee Thursday morning.

Appearing on ABC’s Good Morning America, Clinton said McCain’s move to suspend his campaign and request a delay in the first presidential debate was a move done in “good faith,” rather than as a stunt to halt falling poll numbers as several Democrats have alleged.

“I presume he did that in good faith since I know he wanted — I remember he asked for more debates to go all around the country and so I don’t think we ought to overly parse that,” Clinton said, sounding a familiar McCain Campaign talking point.

A few hours later Clinton lavished praise on McCain as he introduced him at the Clinton Global Initiative forum, saying Republican presidential nominee had taken the lead in his party when it comes to climate change.

“When most people in his party were thinking that global warming was overstated and maybe even a myth — he decided to look into it,” he said.

Bill Clinton: McCain ‘A Great Man’; Praises Wife’s, Not Obama’s Economic Plan

 

UPDATE: BC has taken a lot of heat over this. In later interviews, he has been a tad positive on the Nobamamania. Overall, he has used diplomacy in discussing McCain and Palin.

However in a rare television interview tonight, the former president called Republican presidential candidate John McCain “a great man” and praised GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin as an “instinctively effective candidate.”

On a day when Obama sought to convince voters that he’s best able to handle the economic crisis, the former president said it was his wife, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., who gave today “the most detailed position” on what to do about the financial crisis.

In an interview with CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo, Clinton, who has tried to put to rest rumors of tensions between himself and Obama said, “I’ve never concealed my admiration and affection for Sen. McCain. I think he’s a great man.

But if tonight’s interview is any indication, Bill Clinton will not be lavishing praise on his wife’s former primary rival.

Don’t sound like a very good endorsement for Obama does it! Sounds like he is campaigning for John McCain and Sarah Palin! from GoodTimePolitics

I could not have said it better myself GoodTime!

I think he is being truthful about his admiration for both McCain and Palin. However it is also pretty obvious that he knows how the NObama campaign smear tactics work from his recent experience on the campaign trail for Hillary. Betcha he remembers how they played the race card against him

and a whole lot of other things. They are doing what they have to do publicly..whatever the NObama campaign wants..or Hill would be dead meat should she run again. Gotta stick together, ya know. Overall, quite a telling interview to read between the lines.

Obama’s Economics Advisor- Fannie Mae Fraud!Call in the Ghost Busters!

Obama has no background in economics. Who advises him? The Post says it’s Franklin Raines, for “advice on mortgage and housing policy.” Shocking. Under Raines, Fannie Mae committed “extensive financial fraud.” Raines made millions. Fannie Mae collapsed. Taxpayers? Stuck with the bill.”

Funny how every time the McCain Campaign does an ad..My My, The Nobama team gets their panties underwear whatever,in a wad,

Obama spokesman Bill Burton lied: campaign had “neither sought nor received” advice from Raines “on any matter.” Oh really?

Gee Whiz, we are losing our hope in the great one of change..Add this to your expertise on the economy. ANOTHER ONE BIT THE DUST! It just keeps building..from your # 2 spot in those who gained: See Follow the Money Honey-Obama #2 with Freddy& Fannie:

Yeah, gotcha again..Oh shucks, don’t you wish we had a harder time reading. Just like line 14 in the legislation you voted on Nobama..remember that ad the McCain campaign ran saying that you voted in the affirmative for Kindergartner’s to receive sex education…safe sex and all that other ‘important’ stuff our children need to know. Yes, let’s dumb them down earlier. Let’s not worry about ‘reading, writing and arithmetic! Man, you had them all over that, from the women on the view to the talking heads on the MSM on down saying LIES LIES LIES..IT WAS JUST TO SHOW THEM ABOUT INAPPROPRIATE TOUCHING..Uh huh! Right! Your days of Lawyer speak are over!

PLAY IT AGAIN SAM! How many times do we have to tell you, we are not stupid white trash! Heck, we ain’t even stupid! We do have hog calling contests and we shoot turkeys!

McCain spokesman Brian Rogers points to three items in the Washington Post in July and August. It turns out that the three items (including an editorial) all rely on the conversation, between a Style section profile of the discredited Fannie Mae boss that appeared on July 16. Raines and a Washington Post reporter, Anita Huslin, who wrote The profile reported that Raines, who retired from Fannie Mae four years ago, had “taken calls from Barack Obama’s presidential campaign seeking his advice on mortgage and housing policy matters.”

Raines settled charges brought by the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight by agreeing this spring to pay $2 million and forfeiting $22.7 million in stock and other benefits. And though none of it will come out of his pocket — the payment was covered by insurance.

This really sounds like ‘Who ya gonna call? The Ghost Buster of fraud? Great experts..I’d say, perhaps they should get themselves one of those ghost buster machines that can bring all the greed out of the soul of the offenders..just saying..

By Raines’s own account, he took a couple of calls from someone on the Obama campaign, and they had some general discussions about economic issues.

Washington post

Okay False hope of change. What will you say about this? Or maybe won’t say? Still hoping everybody is stupid? Goodness, you do have the answers for our economy don’t you? Better get ya one of those high tech greed busting machines.

McCain said “That’s how we see this election: country first or Obama first.”

Now if any of you are still wondering about NObama and wonder just how he really feels about this country after his behavior with the DIS-INVITE that not only reflected on HIS character but the MOST DISTURBING part to me was that he could not put politics aside to stand in unity against Iran. How in the heck can he lead when he can’t get himself together and/or control supporters of the dis-invite..the honorable thing would have been to show up, to stand up when others sat down..Guess I am really stretching it to ask him to be honorable for our country. He disgraced us before Amadinejad in my opinion. How they must laugh at our turmoil.

See link below! Do you think NObama puts his country first? I don’t for one minute..take that back. Not for a nano second.

McCain said “That’s how we see this election: country first or Obama first.”

Excerpt: see the full post at link above from  goodtimepolitics

When it came time to support our troops fighting to protect our freedoms and way of life my opponent said he’d never deprive them of the fundsthey needed to fight and then he voted to do just that. He voted against funding the equipment our troops rely on as they fight to protect us. That’s not putting the men and women of our military first, my friends. When it comes time to reach across the aisle and work with members of both parties to get things done for the American people, my opponent cant name a single occasion in which he fought against his party’s leadership to get something done for the country…that’s not putting the country first.”

Does Obama Team want ‘Horrific’ Wall Street Headlines

This is a time for leaders to keep their cool..to pretend if they have to, that they are the wise Winston Churchill that held his country together during WW2..His voice on the radio going out to the people that they would make it..that there was hope..that they would win! We need some positive input from a leader, not just rhetoric of the doom and gloom! Oh I forgot, we do not value the wisdom of age and experience in this country.

 We need someone that will stand up look for the solutions, not rashly as some. We know the problem. One question is how do you prevent this in the future. We need reform. Not hasty know it all arrogance.

The question is:Will we bear the pain as our parents and grandparents did in an earlier generation to sacrifice the immediate for the long term good of the country and yes, for our children and grandchildren. Are we willing to look at the issues and our biblical values and put our country first and foremost? Yes, those are the questions we face today.

Ross Perot predicted a lot of what we see happening when Nafta was being touted as the way to go. Don’t get the impression that I am not for free trade. I am. I do think we left the plug on the sink open as far as American jobs were concerned. In fact, I think China has become us and we are becoming China in many ways. We also had the opening to what would become the Enron Scandal in 98 or 99.  Heck, even old Ralph Nader predicted this about 10 years ago.  So, the sink has not only overflowed..it has flooded the house. But remember, there is always hope. Hope for Country first..we can build that dam stronger than before, so most in the future are protected from the flood of greed.

There are several links below that you may find of interest in the financial realm.

First, I was sickened by the discussion below:

OBAMA TEAM WANTS ‘HORRIFIC ‘ WALL STREET HEADLINES FROM CNN

 If Crowley is correct, it would appear that Sarah Palin’s comment “some use change to promote their carreer..while others use their carreers to promote change.” is right on target!  I think I prefer the statement McCain made when he was fighting for the surge in the Senate, that he would rather lose an election than to lose the war.

Do you think the recent stock market collapse or troubles in the banking system are good news?

Well, according to CNN’s Candy Crowley, the Obama campaign does.

On Monday’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” after CNN senior political analyst David Gergen said “what happened over the weekend with the economy and the bottom falling out of the financial marketsis the opportunity for Obama to seize the momentum back on his side,” Crowley actually said, “[J]ust as foreclosures were showing up on B-17, or in the real estate section, along comes this horrific headline out of Wall StreetI mean, this is what they wanted.”

I kid you not. The transcript of this disgraceful exchange follows

DAVID GERGEN, CNN SENIOR POLITICAL ANALYST: But what happened over the weekend with the economy and the bottom falling out of the financial markets — and we have been saying for some time on this program this is the worst financial crisis since the Depression — Alan Greenspan said on Sunday the worst economic situation he’s seen — it seems to me that there’s a real turning point now, that that momentum on McCain’s side is likely to fade. And there is the opportunity for Obama to seize the momentum back on his side. I don’t know if he’s going to do it or not. He is trying. McCain has an opportunity here as well. But there’s no question right now that this — this really dark economic situation is now going to be — is going to really — is going to, I think, blot out a lot of this question about who — the backing-and-forthing and the advertising, and focus on the issues.

ANDERSON COOPER, HOST: Right.

GERGEN: And that’s what — that’s what Obama has wanted to do. He’s now got the opportunity.

I think, personally, he’s got the critique down, but he still hasn’t provided a message about what he would do, nor has he really surrounded himself, in the way he needs to, with the Bob Rubins and the Paul Volckers and the Larry Summers and Laura Tysons, and have them as a tight unit. I think he still has to do that.

COOPER: Candy, no doubt — very quickly — on the campaign trail, it obviously played a big role today. You anticipate, in the days ahead, issue number one, it’s going to be front and center?

CANDY CROWLEY, CNN: Oh, absolutely.

I mean, listen, just as foreclosures were showing up on B-17, or in the real estate section, along comes this horrific headline out of Wall Street.

COOPER: Right.

CROWLEY: I mean, this is what they wanted. They believe, of course, that the economy is one of their strengths and that they can paint John McCain as George Bush.

Isn’t that nice? The nation’s banking system is collapsing, and members of CNN are not only discussing how it helps Obama, but are admitting that this is what his campaign wanted.

How disgraceful.

Let’s look at some financial headlines

McCain defends comments on economy, blasts Wall Street ‘greed’… excerpt below

McCain, who has been dogged by his comment that he’s not an expert on the economy, told CNBC: “I understand the economy. I was chairman of the Commerce Committee that oversights every part of our economy. I have a far, far longer record of addressing these issue than my opponent does. And I certainly don’t think we should raise taxes in these difficult times.”Read the rest of this story here

:Calls for commission… 

FDIC monitoring impact… excerpt below

WASHINGTON, Sept 15 (Reuters) – The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp is closely monitoring the market situation and has taken steps to mitigate any impact on insured banks resulting from Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc’s (LEH.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) bankruptcy filing, the agency’s head said on Monday.

Fed Leaves Key Rate Unchanged Excerpt below:

Note: We have a couple of posts on the Federal Reserve, one made into a page at the top of the blog.

WASHINGTON –  

If the market turmoil and other forces hitting the economy result in weaker growth than the Fed is expecting at the moment, Jones said he still believed the central bank will implement two quarter-point rate cuts before the end of the year.

The Federal Reserve kept a key interest rate unchanged Tuesday, saying that strains in financial markets have “increased significantly” but that it would keep an eye on them and act, if needed.

The central bank said it was keeping its target for the federal funds rate, the interest that banks charge on overnight loans, unchanged at 2 percent.

Now on a serious note:

I heard that Obama was offering free lipstick to all that vote for him..eh? Suppose it’s the lipsticks sent to his Campaign headquarters? The used lipsticks?  thought I had better add that this is a joke..the lipstick thing uh huh! That’s a little bit of my bad sarcasm! LoL!

America for Sale and the New Pyramid Builders

I don’t know about you, but I find this outrageous! Step by step, they have a plan. Do we? What is our Government thinking? What is going on RIGHT UNDER OUR NOSE? I suppose as I have said , that Globilization is more important to the ‘elite’ than our own country’s economic welfare.or our very freedom and liberty.. Do you suppose when their plan is complete that we will be sent to camps to reeducate our thinking? Or maybe even lose our heads if we do not comply with their beliefs? Laugh if you want..these people are dead serious and they are not going away. They let the little people do their killing. Their money is buying our country. We are slowly bleeding to death! While they intend to destroy us, our thinking is vague…our once great Universities cater and strut to appease, to teach their studies..while your own faith is considered to be of no value..outdated..I suppose they prefer Sharia Law to The laws of God. But of course, there is no discrimination here…of course not…we of the judeo Christian faith do not kill you if you don’t convert .Radical Fundamentalist Islam is PC. ..we are blind , deaf and mute. It is easy now to take over step by step..Money is Power….Power seems to corrupt..and we are scaredy cats.. we cannot be bothered to find out the real issues at stake.. We like our comfort zone.. I  think if we don’t wake up we will be in the Twilight Zone! Of course, that is just me and my radical thinking.

A mile-high tower will rise in a desert port town, and Americans will be helping to finance its £5 billion construction cost. It will rise in the town Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, halfway up the length of the Red Sea.
At 5,250 feet, it will be twice the height of another tower being erected in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, on the Persian Gulf. A few miles north up the Sea from Jeddah is Rabigh, where about 40,000 workers are constructing the world’s largest petrochemical plant as part of King Abdullah Economic City, itself part of a $500 billion plan to turn Saudi Arabia into a “powerhouse” industrial giant. Other massive construction projects are underway in Kuwait and other Persian Gulf countries.
“By the end of the year,” reported The New York Times in an article, “The Construction Site Called Saudi Arabia,” on January 20,

“this massive city of steel at the edge of the Red Sea will take its place as a cog of globalization: plastics produced here will be used to make televisions in Japan, cellphones in China and thousands of other products to be sold in the United States and Europe. Construction costs at the plant, which spreads over eight square miles, have doubled to $10 billion because of shortages in materials and labor. The amount of steel being used is 10 times the weight of the Eiffel Tower.”

The Times article also reports that,

“Abu Dhabi is planning to spend close to $1 billion for a new museum with the help of the Louvre, in Paris. Dubai’s latest grandiose idea is to build a small-scale replica of the French city of Lyon, complete with residential housing, a museum, a culinary school and a soccer club.”

Americans will be helping to finance these and other massive projects in Saudi Arabia and in the Persian Gulf fiefdoms through their gas and heating oil prices. One important thing to remember about these projects is that they are not strictly “private” undertakings; every one of them is a government project. Strictly speaking, neither Saudi Arabia nor any of the other medieval kingdoms or satrapies in the Mideast has a “government,” representative or otherwise.

Their legislative bodies are purely artificial fictions beholden to ruling families. The only persons who have billions to invest in these new pyramids are those related or closely connected to those ruling families. Michael Corleone’s Mafia crime family pales in comparison to these Middle East oil oligarchies, which have their own tribal codes of loyalty, justice and silence, a morality that boasts its own “whacking” policy against Muslims who “rat” on Mohammed or take Allah’s name in vain, or who abandon the tribe completely, and an inbred contempt for and mistrust of all non-Muslim outsiders.

  

A similar arrangement exists in Mainland China, in which most of the cadres of the ruling Communist Party own and control the “private enterprises” behind China’s own economic boom. That arrangement is by definition fascist, and accounts for the censorship, brutal repression, and absence of any civil liberties there. In Saudi Arabia and its Islamic neighbors, the arrangement is much more primitive, and intractably religious.
Such as Prince al-Walid bin Talal, planner of the mile-high tower, who bought the prestigious Savoy Hotel in London for £1.25 billion in 2005, reports the London Daily Mail of March 31. Bin Talal is the Saudi who offered former Mayor Rudy Giuliani a $10 million check after the World Trade Center was destroyed by fellow Saudis in 2001. Giuliani promptly returned the check. Bin Talal also is an enabler of Islam in the West, building dozens of mosques in it every year and giving $20 million to Harvard and Georgetown Universities to establish schools of “Islamic studies.”

One can imagine bin Talal’s mile-high tower is his extravagant way of giving a Bronx cheer to the U.S., the World Trade Center, and all those who died in the attack.

 

 Two British firms, Hyder Consulting and Arup, will tackle the tower project in a joint venture with bin Talal’s firm, Kingdom Holdings. One supposes that is a kind of reward to the British for wanting to de-emphasize the Holocaust and the Crusades, or not teach the subjects at all, in history lessons in the presence of British Muslim students, for allowing Islamic Sharia law to creep up to equivalence with British secular law, and for many other concessions to Muslim “sensibilities.”

Saudi Arabia is the world’s biggest oil exporter. “The Persian Gulf countries reaped “$1.5 trillion in oil revenue from 2002 to 2006,” reports the
Times
article. Saudi Arabia and its religious/political rival, Iran, another oil exporter, together are the chief enablers of Islamic jihad against the West.
 

 

But vertical pyramids and other vanity projects are not the sole means employed by billionaire Arabs to engineer a hostile takeover of the West. The Times article reports that.
 “Last year…a fund controlled by the government of Abu Dhabi bought a stake in Citigroup for $7.5 billion, while another run by Dubai’s ruler bought a large share in Sony, the Japanese consumer electronics giant. Sabie, a major Saudi petrochemical company, bought the plastics division of General Electric for $11.6 billion, and the Kuwait Petroleum Corporation bought half of Dow Chemical’s commodity-plastics unit for $9.5 billion….In recent weeks, other big banks plagued by losses from the mortgage crisis, like Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley, have raised tens of billions of dollars from a variety of Middle Eastern and Asian funds, including ones from Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.”

 The American Congress for Truth reports an April 1st Human Events article, in “America for Sale to Sharia Sovereign Wealth Funds,” that

“In December 2007, Bourse Dubai, the world’s first and largest Islamic equity exchange, bought 20% of NASDAQ, the biggest U.S. electronic stock market, and ‘rebranded’ it as part of Dubai’s company. The Bourse also got NASDAQ’s 28% of the London Stock Exchange (LSE). In addition, Qatar acquired a 24% LSE stake, giving the two Gulf nations control over nearly 52% of the London exchange. On March 15 [2008], Iran, which now dominates the leading 100 Islamic banks – followed by Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and the UAE – announced plans to list a $90 billion energy holding company on the Dubai International Financial Exchange, which is wholly owned by Bourse Dubai.”

 

 This article, incidentally, was co-authored by Rachel Ehrenfeld, an American, who was sued in a British court by Saudi billionaire Khalid Salim bin Mahfouz for writing a book, Funding Evil: How Terrorism is Financed and How to Stop It, which, among other things, revealed Mahfouz’s role in promoting the Islamic conquest of Britain and Europe. The British court ordered her to pay “$225,000 in damages and legal fees to Mahfouz, as well as apologize and destroy existing copies of her books,” according to ACT for America on April 1st. Mahfouz is a professional libel “tourist,” or terrorist who prefers to extinguish his victims with costly litigation instead of with planes or bombs on vests or in backpacks.

Mahfouz, however, has already made significant inroads by practicing censorship by lawsuit. The most notorious instance to date was his 2007 suit against Cambridge University Press for publishing Alms for Jihad, by J. Millard Burr and Robert O. Collins, also Americans, who detailed how Islamic charities are simply money laundering fronts for terrorists. CUP, as a defendant under British libel law, had to refute the accusations and also limit itself in terms of what evidence it could employ in its defense. Rather than face a sea of Saudi petro-pounds in court costs and legal expenses, which it would probably have been ordered to reimburse Mahfouz, CUP caved in to him, withdrew the book from sale and circulation, agreed to shred all existing copies of it, asked libraries to return their copies to be destroyed, and apologized to Mahfouz.

That whole shameful episode of censorship by lawsuit by Islamic billionaires is reminiscent of the John Wilkes affair of 1763, when Wilkes, a member of the House of Commons, said that the king indeed could do wrong, and was promptly charged with libel by the government and expelled from Parliament. He fought back, however, eventually won over his enemies, and his name became synonymous with freedom of the press.

But, to return to the pyramids and the financial subornation of Western capitalism, what must be understood is that these chunks of ownership cannot be likened to investments by the Al Capone crime syndicate, nor even to a Michael Corleone-style ruse of investing a gang’s takings in “legitimate” business (see “The Godfather, Part II,” for that tactic), although the root causes are similar. These are aggressive moves by a united political/religious bloc, Islam, to influence the course of Western civilization by acquiring financial leverage over banks, lending institutions, major corporations and investors, and finally over Western political institutions, solely and ultimately to advance the Islamization of the West.

And, as statist regulations and controls foster the growth of organized crime at home and abroad (resulting in such programs the U.S.-directed “war” against the drug cartel in Colombia and tribal poppy-growing enterprises in Afghanistan), irrational foreign policies have fostered the growth of regimes and tyrannies fundamentally hostile to the West. Western policies permitted Saudi Arabia and other OPEC members to seize private oil producing property, and, in conjunction with that inaction, the West at home established prohibitive controls on the development of oil producing resources as part of environmental and “conservation” policies. This has resulted in the West’s perilous dependency on the production whims of OPEC and the transfer of enormous wealth to those regimes and tyrannies.

 

As Nikita Khrushchev once promised that the Soviet Union would ‘bury” the U.S. as an industrial power, Saudi Arabia and its Persian Gulf neighbors are promising to bury the U.S. as a global competitor. Instead of demanding that it acknowledge the “superiority” of communism, they will require that the U.S. become a deferential handmaiden of Islam, if not an Islamic province itself.
Of course, all those billion dollar projects are undertaken on the premise that the U.S. and the West will not commit economic suicide by “going green” or by becoming fascist, that they will remain viable, productive realms. If the U.S experiences an economic collapse, the Treasury notes, mutual funds and other government instruments held by Mideast financiers will be as worthless as the ones owned by private American investors and speculators.

 Ancient Egyptian kings and pharaohs built over ninety pyramids to house them at death. The new pyramid builders seek to bury the corpse of the West in their own. No one should doubt that Islam – including its kings, emirs, princes, mullahs, imams, its billionaires, its countless mind-stunted manqués, and its homicidal killers – wishes to eviscerate the West, and especially the U.S.



The U.S. and the West should act now to ensure that those mile-high towers, high- rises, and plants remain empty monuments to larcenous vanity, by rediscovering the necessary virtues of self-preservation and self-interest.

SAUDIS BUYING INTO OUR FUTURE GENERATIONS

Friends, understand they are serious..Are we? Are we going to be the generation that allows our Country..all that our forefathers fought for to be whittled away step by step..through our apathy? This is not a time to ‘let others take care of it’. We are on a runaway train..where it stops is ultimately up to us. What kind of America will our children inherit?
