Congressional Betrayal

There is no distinctly American criminal class - except Congress. Mark Twain Brainy Quotes

It seems I’m dealing with a sort of writer’s block. While I have done many posts in the past two weeks, none of them seemed worth publishing. How weird is that?  Along with the block, my daughter moved out of the house and it has been a huge process to get things moved around to suit my personal likes.  However, I am loving my “space.”

H.R. 1207, Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009 had over 320 sponsors when it landed in committee.  When it came up for a vote, 120 of those sponsors jumped ship.  Who bought them off?  I don’t think that congress wants to know just how bad things are.  Certainly they don’t want us to know.  Secession comes to mind more often these days as I consider these criminals blatantly ruining our country…

H.R. 1207 had more sponsors than any bill in the last 20 years. What happened?  Every American citizens wanted to know what was going on inside the federal reserve.  The congressional switchboard was lit up for months with calls from constituents asking their “representatives” to co-sponsor the bill.  Could congress have any doubt that Americans wanted the federal reserve audited?  No way.  This is not some sort of mistake but the betrayal of every man, woman, and child by those criminals in congress and the thugs backing them, the bankers.

Who do we ultimately have to thank for pulling the teeth from Audit the Fed?  Why Representative Berney Franks, Massachusetts 4th District.  The gay boy owned and operated by bankers.  I’m not here to criticize his sexual preferences, although he should have been fired long ago for the sex scandal he was involved in, but to point out just who the bankers own.

Berney Franks is head of the financial services committee.  He authored H.R. 4173, which had ZERO sponsors, and it passed the house just fine.  There are no teeth to this bill, nothing that would benefit America, and it only requires a one time audit of some of the banks which the feds will provide.  It is a monster bill, which requires one to spend hours and hours reading.  While huge, it is full of loopholes and back doors for the bankers.  It is a betrayal of every American across the nation. In fact the bill is so large that govtrack warns of loading the bill claiming it will slow down your web browser..  Right now HR 4173 only lacks the POTUS signature to become law.

While the criminals in the banking industry and congress may have won this round, Representative Ron Paul, Republican from Texas, vows they will NOT win the war!  Representative Paul has a huge following of Americans from across the country.  Congress should consider his popularity if they wish to keep their jobs.  Of course, for many it is already too late…

The complete destruction of this country is well underway.  Official notice has been received by Gov. Jan Brewer and Arizona on SB 1070. Americans face trillions of dollars of tax debt that we can never hope to pay back thanks to congress abdicating their jobs of controlling and making money.  We have gone from working to pay our taxes for 4 months to almost 6 months today.

The bankers make up money out of thin air and lend it back to us, it has no backing, at an interest rate they set.  While the interest may be a small amount right now, the trillions of dollars in debt makes the small amount add up to an astronomical figure, with more interest tacked on each day…

Look who flip-flopped on ‘Audit the Fed’ vote

Ron Paul: ‘They may have won this battle, but they’re not going to win the war’

For decades those decisions have been made behind closed doors, and Paul has been trying to open the door and allow some light to fall on the procedures. He sponsored the audit the Fed bill previously supported by 320 members of the House. However, the audit provision failed by a vote of 229-198.

“Even though they may have won this battle, they’re not going to win the war,” Paul said in a video posted today on the Daily Paul. “What they’re doing is going to be devastating to us because this piece of legislation actually gave more power to the Federal Reserve – not less, more power to the regulators, more effort to keep themselves in secret. … For those individuals that believe in monetary reform and transparency, we will keep the heat on the Fed until we get an honest monetary system.”

We must punish this corrupt congress by voting out all those who betray us. We cannot stick our heads in the sand and expect this country to survive. There is no time left for fence-sitting or dreaming of better days. This country is in trouble and the crooks in congress and their wall street backers are an actively participating in the process.

So why did 120 representatives vote against H.R. 1207?  Why would they first sponsor the bill and then vote against it when the final vote came and a chance to really examine our financial situation came up?  Because they were paid to do so.  Once you take money from these banking crime-syndicate, you owe them and they will collect.

Not voting is the same as jumping ship.  These Did Not Vote:

Bishop, Rob (R-Utah)
Taylor, Gene (D-Miss.)
Wamp, Zach (R-Tenn.)
Woolsey, Lynn (D-Calif)
Young, Don (R-Alaska)

My representative, Ed Pastor, is listed here.  I called his office to find out why he jumped ship on this bill.  Of course the person on the other end of the line couldn’t answer my question, so I left my phone number and name and specified that I did NOT want a form letter but a direct answer from this representative on why he would first co-sponsor the bill and then vote against it.  I’ll update this post when I get an answer, IF, any is forthcoming…

The only way we get these people to understand we are watching their actions, and holding them accountable, is by calling and emailing them.  I am no longer satisfied with blanket form letters, I want answers. I want him accountable for this betrayal.  These people owe us their cushy jobs!  Time to pay the piper or be retired…  I’m done letting these slaves of the money men get off scott free!

As I look over Ed Pastor’s voting record I don’t see much to be proud of.  About the only thing they did right in the House was to make sure they didn’t give themselves a raise next year.  I would love it if every Citizen out there checked into VoteSmart and checked up on their senators and representatives.  Unless we do they will continue their faithless lack of responsibility towards America.

During the Audit The Fed petition drive, over 96,000 Americans cared enough to add their names.  I’m sure there were more out there, but they didn’t see that particular page.  I signed it.  Shame on the House for not honoring their constituents desire for accountability.

Stately structure that should mean something other than abuse of the People! http://modmyi.com/images/Messany/US%20Capitol.jpg

The captiol is a stately structure that should mean something other than abuse of power!  If we do not make our voices heard why would congress, either the senate or the house, have reason to hear us?  They have worked hard to steal the power of the People.   Yet they are dependent on us for their jobs.  Time to make it clear who they work for and that worshiping money and the corporate thugs will only get them fired and replaced, end of cushy job…

Ron Paul on Watergate, Saddam Hussein and the Federal Reserve

That’s right — Watergate and Saddam Hussein. Rep. Paul was airing allegations that the Federal Reserve has been used to funnel money for various nefarious causes. That’s why the Fed needs wider audits by Congress, Mr. Paul said. His bill to audit the central bank’s monetary policy — a measure the Fed opposes — would include a lag of six months. Today, he sought to win a commitment to audit the Fed after 10 or 15 years. “Why couldn’t we open the books up 10 years back and find out the truth of these matters?” Mr. Paul asked.

There are many who claim that Ron Paul is crazy, but let me remind you, he has been in Congress a long time, was schooled before “no child left behind” came about, and knows more of history than most Americans today do. Before accusations are hurled at him one should carefully check their facts. This isn’t a representative who makes wild claims, only factual ones.

Independence Hall We Have Forgotten Our Roots http://www.galenfrysinger.com/philadelphia_independence_hall.htm

Rassmusen Reports said on July 29, 2009 that 75% of Americans want to have the federal reserve audited. THAT IS A HUGE NUMBER! So we have to ask, why isn’t congress listening? Because they are used to doing as they please and as the money pays them to do. I guess their salaries aren’t enough. We need to fine them for not working for us. First vote them out and then each person in their State should sue them for damages.  Do you think they would listen then?  Think of the money returned, how the national debt would be nicked away…

Those we then elect would understand who they work for and that accountability will be demanded, not requested.  The time for playing nice is done and gone.  But, if we the People don’t get serious, why should they listen?

According to the latest poll numbers on Rassmusan the Obamination has lost another 17 points, (-17), as of July 7th, (today).  Over 54% of America disapprove of what Obama is doing and how he is handling things.  Those are tough numbers, and they keep slipping…  This is a direct result of Obama’s sucking up to certain illegals, foreign governments like Mexico, and not paying attention to American Citizens.  Frankly, I think the numbers are way high.  I don’t believe they reflect the true feelings of the People.  That will happen when you sue a State for trying to protect its Citizens in favor of another countries’ citizens….

The U.K. poll numbers on Obama show that the Citizens of the U.K. are thoroughly disgusted with Obama, especially after the BT Oil Spill and how it is all being handled, the excuses Obama makes, and his lack of leadership skills.

Daily Presidential Tracking Poll

Wednesday, July 07, 2010

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 26% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-three percent (43%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -17

The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. It is updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern

I would suggest that Obama start to pay attention to the People instead of those banking thugs, but he won’t. The bankers decide the policies of this country.  Those in congress and the POTUS just kiss their asses and bend over….
