From Despair to Determination

It’s easy, nowadays, to fear for America.

At every turn, it seems as though the ideas and ideals upon which this great experiment were founded so long ago are being eroded by time, by culture, by the trappings of money and influence and power. With every passing day, it seems as though our elected officials in Washington, D.C. find a new way to abandon inherently American principles and countermand the will of the people.

Once upon a time, We The People were the driving force behind America. We were informed, we were engaged, we were involved, we were essential. Now, we are little more than Sen. Lindsay Graham’s “loud folks,” or Sen. Chuck Schumer’s “chattering class” — a nuisance, an annoyance, a distraction, part of the problem rather than part of the solution. Suddenly, those of us beyond the Beltway simply do not know what we want, do not know what’s best for our own families, our own industry, our own country.

They think we’re stupid. They think our values are stupid and antiquated, they perceive our picket-fence-and-apple-pie hopes and dreams to be nothing more than empty nostalgia, than some attempt at recapturing a long forgotten time seen on T.V. Land reruns but nowhere else. They, of course, know what is best for America. They, of course, know what we do and do not want for our businesses, our schools, our children. And, darn it, they’re going to do what they feel is right, regardless of what the people say.

It’s easy, nowadays, to fear for America. More often than not, I do. I look at my own life, my own family, and while not a day goes by when I do not thank God for blessing me more than I deserve, I am all too aware that a couple hundred dollars added to or missing from the household balance sheet in any given month can make or break us, can either allow for the satisfaction of knowing that we’ve saved just a little bit or for the momentary relief from everyday burdens of life that only a quiet dinner out or martini-and-a-movie at home can bring, or it can send us on a downward spiral into a hole from which it takes a few months and a little luck to break free and climb out. I think of us, my wife, daugher and I, in this little house on the outskirts of Philadelphia, struggling each and every month. Then, I think of those across this nation who are not nearly as lucky, about how they can hope to survive the hardship to come, about how they may not be as strong in terms of resisting the superficial temptations of the nanny state. And I fear for America.

My wife, daughter and I cannot handle the inevitable downhill consequences and inflationary costs associated with the left’s spendthrift ways. We cannot handle an economic downturn artificially extended by the malfeasance of the elites in our nation’s capital. And we’re not alone. If only the federal government would get out of the way, would allow the economy to find its bottom rather than propping it up, time and time again, by mortgaging more and more of the future of our children’s children, would allow Americans like you and like me to keep more of our own money, to build our own businesses as we saw fit, to secure and stabilize our own lives as we must, we might emerge from this unfortunate slowdown sooner rather than later — and be better off for having done so.

The Beltway elite, however, fail to listen and refuse to care. To them, we’re a thorn in the side of the perpetuation of power, a fat stick in the spokes of their twisted, delusional concept of “progress.” To them, We The People don’t matter, We The People don’t have the experience or perspective they’ve developed during their lifetime spent mired in bureaucracy. As a result, our ideas and hopes and opinions mean next to nothing to them, our protests and warnings and admonitions and pleas nothing more than fodder for side-splitting stories in tight little circles of privileged pretentiousness at the next Georgetown cocktail party.

Yesterday’s so-called “compromise” on the so-called “stimulus” package was a shining example of that manufactured–and undoubtedly welcomed–disconnect. Not only was the bill filled with provision after provision which will provide no ascertainable help to our ailing economy, but legislator after legislator actively chose to disregard the opinions of those who sent them to Washington in the first place. Some legislators, it seemed, found nothing wrong with the idea of spending nearly a trillion dollars of taxpayer money without having even read the entire bill.

Most insulting to me in particular was that the Democrats made no attempt to incorporate the Republicans and their ideas–elections have consequences, don’t you know!–in any part of the process. As soon as it became apparent they had the votes needed for passage, Nancy Pelosi and her minions slammed the doors, shut House Republicans out, and unilaterally acted to extract many of the tax relief measures first put into the bill in an attempt to woo Republican members of Congress. They slipped the “mickey” into our drink, had their way with us, then kicked us to the doorstep and left us holding our own underbritches and with a giant porcine baby on the way.

If the American people were promised anything during this last election, it was a change in the way our government functioned. More transparency, less mystery. More accountability, less blame-shifing. More responsibility and more trust, less bureaucracy, partisanship, and game-playing. Change.

Those promises and more were broken without even a second thought and, for that reason, yesterday was a truly awful day for the United States of America. Yesterday, the many were truly subjugated by the wild-eyed and power-hungry elite, the will of the masses usurped by the selfish desires of the few.

Yes, it’s easy, nowadays, to fear for America — but that doesn’t mean that we must.

In the horror of the past few weeks and months, as difficult as it has been to watch elected officials under the watch of two different administrations make all of the wrong decisions, further burdening our future generations with every misstep, I’ve begun to see some promise deep within the pain. I see focus among conservatives, in and out of Washington, D.C. I see Democrats of all shapes, sizes, colors and tax brackets wondering, “Oh Lord, what have I done?” I see leadership–solid, unafraid leadership–emerging from the shadows. Slowly but surely, on the American political right, the wheat is separating from the chaff.

When it has come to these latest slides down the slippery slope toward socialism, there has perhaps been no better conservative voice than that of South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint. Throughout these difficult times, he has made all of the right decisions at all of the right times, said all of the right things in the right ways, exhibited stellar leadership where, just weeks before, there had been a noticeable leadership vacuum. He has, time and time again over the past six months especially, displayed unshakeable principles and uncompromised character.

For that reason, I wanted to see what the senator had to say about yesterday’s disappointing and frustrating news from the halls of Capitol Hill. Of course, as I am simply a normal guy with a fairly popular Web site and hardly a journalist of any consequence (if a journalist at all), Sen. DeMint understandably had enough on his plate that entertaining my garrulous praise and enduring my long-winded questions was simply not going to happen. A spokesperson in DeMint’s office, however, was more than helpful and gave tremendous insight into how his boss has approached the latest news about the so-called “stimulus” package.

On what the Democrats have been touting as yesterday’s “compromise,” DeMint’s spokesperson mentioned that the senator “has said from the start that Democrats were hoping to offer a bloated spending bill and attract a few moderates by making small cuts, which is exactly what has happened.” That compromise, he said, has done nothing to change the fundamental problem with the bill, in that it grows the federal government rather than our free economy.

“If those making the compromise truly were concerned that numerous programs in the bill were wasteful and didn’t create jobs, those programs should have been eliminated, not simply given a haircut,” DeMint’s spokesperson told America’s Right. “The Democrat stimulus is nothing more than a grab-bag of pet projects that liberals have been trying to pass for the last 10 years. The trillion dollar bill will not fix our economy, but it will achieve its goal of making Americans more dependent on the government. Instead of giving Washington politicians taking a trillion dollars out of the economy to spend as they wish, Americans families and businesses should be able to keep a trillion dollars of their own money to spend and invest as they see fit.”

DeMint’s spokesperson–who, honestly, I’d love to see in office himself–then pointed toward a video showing Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry on the Senate floor only six days ago, reinforcing in his own words the fact that liberal Democrats simply do not trust Americans with their own money, with the freedom to pursue their own happiness. Apparently, DeMint’s spokesperson said, liberals believe government and its politicians are wiser than the American people, a feeling which manifested itself in this so-called “stimulus” bill.

Asked about Sen. DeMint’s feelings toward yesterday’s closed-door reconciliation conference and the overt breach of many of the campaign promises made by President Obama during his historic run for the White House, DeMint’s spokesperson said that the senator was “disappointed but not surprised.”

In the first few weeks,” he said, “President Obama has broken a number of promises he made on the campaign trail. He said he’d reduce abortions, but he signed an executive order that allows taxpayer dollars to promote the destruction of innocent human life overseas. He said he wouldn’t raise taxes on the middle class, but one of the first bills he signed raised cigarette taxes, the most regressive tax of which 96% of Americans who pay it make under $100,000. He said he wouldn’t hire lobbyists, but he has appointed a number of lobbyists to his administration.”

Within these pages, I’ve said several times during last year’s election and as recently as yesterday that this kind of wishy-washiness and blatant refusal to adhere to principles–or total lack of principles to begin with–is the root of the American people’s inherent distrust of and disdain for many who represent them in our nation’s capital. Yesterday, I mentioned the complete lack of principles as a derivative cause of Sens. Arlen Specter, Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins’ betrayal of their party and constituencies in voting for and facilitating the passage of the Obama-Pelosi “stimulus” bill.

While Sen. DeMint’s representative did not go so far as to cause trouble or name names, he admitted that the credibility gap on Capitol Hill must be surmounted for lasting change of the right kind to ever come to Washington and to America, and the only way to do that is by returning to and once again embracing the time-tested tenets of conservatism.

“Senator DeMint believes Republicans will never regain the trust of the American people until our party unifies around the conservative principles of fiscal responsibility, limited government, strong national defense and traditional values,” the senator’s spokesperson said. “We need more rock-solid conservatives in the Senate who will fight for the American people, not seek the approval of Washington elites.”

In these recent days of hopelessness, frustration and disgust, of course it is easy to fear for America. It’s only natural. Honestly, such feelings may be not only warranted but essential, as they indeed remind us of exactly what it is we stand to lose should we refuse to roll up our sleeves and get to work.

Leadership within the conservative movement is not the problem — from this crisis, the cream has risen to the top in the form of DeMint, of Eric Cantor, of Mike Pence, of Mark Sanford, of Michael Steele, and many more. Neither is the message the problem, as the vast majority of Americans who possess even a modicum of personal responsibility undoubtedly practice fiscal conservatism and other conservative principles in their own lives without even knowing it. The problem, as I see it, is disseminating and articulating the conservative message in such a way as to be effective in showing that conservatism is not exclusionary, is not somehow only reserved for the wealthy, is not just relegated to the idyllic, black-and-white societal landscapes of Mayberry and “Leave it to Beaver,” but is indeed the foundation for American prosperity in nearly every situation and circumstance.

This so-called “stimulus” package, as I see it, will present the Republican Party with the perfect opportunity to revert to first principles, and will provide all of us with a similarly perfect opportunity to demonstrate just how those principles will guide America out from the doldrums and despair and will once again cement Her position as a superpower among superpowers — economically, culturally and otherwise.

So, my fellow conservatives, as we prepare to reap the adverse consequences of this belly-flop into socialism, let’s prepare ourselves behind-the-scenes for the coming insurgency. We’ve got the leadership. We’ve got the message. Together, let’s put it all together and ensure that, just as easy as it is today for us to fear for America, it is just as easy in 2010, 2012 and beyond for the Democrats to fear for their beloved party.

    Run On U.S. Banks Triggered Before Election To Elect Obama?
    Did you know that on September 15, 2008, shortly after the Republican National Convention concluded successfully and the McCain-Palin ticket soared in the polls, completely erasing Obama’s big lead, that $550 billion mysteriously disappeared from the U.S. banking system in a matter of two hours? This set off the financial crisis leading the $700 billion TARP bailout law that wrecked McCain’s presidential prospects. That’s what U.S. Rep. Paul Kanjorski revealed to a caller during a C-SPAN interview. The link for the video is here. Capitalism Gone Wild writes of the exchange:

    Rep. Paul Kanjorski of Pennsylvania explains what former Treasury Secretary Paulson and Fed Chairman Bernanke told congress during the September 2008 closed door session. During the first third of the video an enraged caller is ranting to Rep. Kanjorski about how wasteful the first $700 billion bailout was. The best part is 2 minutes and 15 seconds into the tape where Rep. Kanjorski reveals what Paulson and Bernanke told congress that shocked them into supporting the first $700 billion bailout.

    On Thursday Sept 15, 2008 at roughly 11 AM The Federal Reserve noticed a tremendous draw down of money market accounts in the USA to the tune of $550 Billion dollars in a matter of an hour or two. Money was being removed electronically.

    The Treasury tried to help, opened their window and pumped in $150 Billion but quickly realized they could not stem the tide. We were having an electronic run on the banks. So they decided to closed down the accounts.

    Had they not closed down the accounts they estimated that by 2 PM that afternoon. Within 3 hours. $5.5 Trillion would have been withdrawn and the entire economy of the United States would have collapsed, and within 24 hours the world economy would have collapsed.

    So where did that money go and who was behind the withdrawals? Guess who is in on a deal to purchase the failed IndyMac institution, the same one Sen. Charles Schumer helped trigger a run on after he released inside information detailing the bank’s financial woes. It’s none other than George Soros. Atlas Shrugs notes that Soros has a long history of making billions of dollars by creating a financial crisis and then stepping in to grab up bargains. Black Wednesday in Great Britain is Exhibit A. Soros bankrolled Obama’s campaign as well as Democratic campaigns across the country the past few election cycles.

    There will BE no more elections for the Republicans/conservatives to ‘rally together’ and ‘take back America’. The American Republic is GONE, never to be seen again, and the New World Order has taken the control of this country they’ve been plotting and scheming to achieve for the last 100 years.

    It is amazing to me, that on one hand you have the republican party realizing they need to change, in order to recapture the senate, house, or the white house; while on the other hand you have 3 senators voting for this stimulus bill, and thereby ruining any chance that the republicans can seperate themselves.

    This particular article may well be the best I’ve viewed in quite some time, it hits right at the heart of the matter, and it also tugs a bit at the heart strings. In my opinion, which doesn’t mean much, that is what we need to do, tug the heart strings of America, love it, help it, and care for it, as its still the greatest nation on earth, and we need to re-capture that.

    I don’t understand. It’s the middle class who will be hurt. The rich aren’t going to part with their money. The poor don’t have it to part with. So, it’s the middle class who is expected to be taxed into oblivion. But ask yourself: If, as the all-wise and competent PELOSI said, we are losing more jobs per month than we have people in the United States, what is going to be taxed? Not just stores are closing–chains of stores are closing. That has a trickle-down effect, i.e., suppliers, manufacturers, etc.

    Already the local governments are raising taxes while there is still something to levy a tax on–cigarettes, property, gasoline, sales. Insurance rates are going up. Property value has plummeted, so how can ad valorem taxes go up?

    I don’t get it. Where is the money coming from? Hmmm. Maybe we won’t need money. Maybe we’ll just be working for the government so that we can receive our rations.

    My neighbors and I are going to plant a garden in my back yard this spring. I have the space that’s free of trees, and we work together on several fronts. One even told me last year that she would see that I didn’t go hungry and neither would my dog.

    Just hope the government lets me keep my Social Security check, my computer, and my dog. I don’t make a lot of noise–only when I am really upset–as I am today with Chairman Obama Soetoro and his minions.

    Five years ago in the weekly newspaper that I worked for in eastern NC, I wrote a column about all this and said that, if things did not change, we would be headed for socialism and exactly what has happened. And, I feared the day that, instead of Americans receiving paychecks for their earnings, the government would take those checks and give us one for what they wanted us to live on. Scary.

    Jeff – you are right – in that our principles will be the very tool we utilize to press past the rhetoric of the elite liberal maroon . But what will be very difficult to overcome will be the deliberate entities put in place( like acorn and other civic groups , education manipulation- skewing the vote to insure silencing the voice of hope . The corrupt action already used by the left to achieve success has worked and with the vast amount of money at the disposal of a one party congress ( not representative of America and what is best for us) WE are up against the same environment that has allowed Chicago to maintain its mobb operated government ! Low and behold the training ground for all those honorable servants we are enjoying as we speak .THey have figured how to say what you want to hear to convince you to pledge your loyalty while their actions , blatently obvious , are the exact opposite . The madness is in the fact we know they are LYING – they know we know but continue the sharade because they think we CANNOT stop them – they have the power to do as they see fit for their financial gain or ego and we are held captive UNLESS we use the power of the people to overthrow such evil corruption !!!! The constitution has remedy for times such as these which are nearly identical to why the revolution occurred in the first place ! Question is when is enough , enough or how bad does the damage have to be before we act as a nation . They in government are abusing their power – a select few against the many – are we going to enslave ourselves because we are too weak or fearful to try
    Talk at this point is not working – action is necessary . If we listen to the voice of reason ( which is where our principles are naturally born) We must remind each and every American – FREEDOM means – Let me decide how to live my life MR KERRY – butt the hell out – We all have a free will to choose how to live and it is not the right of any other to decide what kind of medical care I receive -what dream I wish to pursue – nor should I be paying for others mistakes by the sweat of my brow -I do not expect any human being to pay for my mistakes , spiritual , physical , financial etc…..
    The financial crisis is the least of our worries – but is beginning to shine a light on all rights that are threatened – which happen to be just about every freedom we enjoy as a people … think about it -
    we have now no faith in:
    a fair election
    our judges are corrupt
    politicians sell out to keep their job
    schools teach lies / avoid history so when a time like this comes along no one recognizes it
    freedom of religion / only if you believe in nothing
    stealing is a virtue / stimulus defined
    freedom speech / fairness doc
    FOCA – fund abortion with our money and infanticide
    unionization of business / bully system
    I could go on and on …can it get much worse – yes

    Is anyone as furious as I am that Obama and his minions have illegally taken over our country? Obama is not a natural born citizen but look at what he is getting away with! Unbelievable! There must be something we can do to stop this! We need to stop talking and take assertive action.

    I believe, as the latter commentator, that there will be no more elections. I believe that this evil Democrat party will see to that. Revolution seems to be the only recourse! We cannot allow this evil to continue, dear people!

    To paraphrase: “If my people will forsake their sins and pray, I will heal their land.” We must pray as never before over our sinfulness and for the Good Lord to intervene on the behalf of His people and for our precious innocent children! It is our sacred duty to look out for our little ones and to care for our elders. We need to pray for wisdom and strength. We need to pray that the Lord will give us the backbone and fortitude to fight for His cause, as men of old, even if it means the ultimate sacrifice! Our forfathers fought for our freedoms to the death! Are we any the less responsible to protect our nation as they did?

    I believe that we are too naive in believing that we will be able to elect our way out of this mess. You all give Obama and his imps too much credit. They will turn this nation so much around that we will not recognize it: it will become so Communistic. We will be taken over; our children will be taken over; and our older people will be left to die! Obama is doing this one sneaky step at a time. It will get to the point that we will look back and wonder how in the world these small steps got us into such a total catastrophic change into Godless lawlessness and loss of freedom! Wake up people!

    The Devil is on the war-path and no commenting on our part or wishful thinking is going to combat this. We must meet fire with fire and that is to wake up and do more than talk. It is no longer time to be nice. People, we must do whatever it takes, for the sake of our children, to turn this horrific situation around.

    When Jesus Christ walked into His temple in Jeruslame and saw the money changers corrupting His sacred church, did He go to them nice and say, “Now this isn’t right, let’s negotiate!”? Of course not! With righteous indignation, he threw those money changing tables around and the dirty money flew all over the place. He said they were not to make His house a den of thieves; He gave them what for! Dear people, isn’t it time we also gave this anti-God government a good kick in the pants and show them the door? Whatever happened to recall? Where are our leaders who, like Jesus, will stand up to call a sin a sin, and take control? Where are our John the Baptists, our Martin Luthers, our Huss and Jeromes? People, we are so spoiled and timid that we do not know how to stand up and fight any more. It does no good to have a resurrected Conservative party if these leaders expect to “nice” their way into change! Nice is no longer rational. We need to be like Jesus when He entered the temple!

    Wake up America! Wake up Conservatives! Wake up Christians! There will be no chance in 2010 or beyond if we do not do something now! Let’s stop this talking and unite to action; whatever it takes to overthrow this evil that will destroy our nation and turn our innocent children against God and all that is righteous!

    We are not to be a nation of timidity but of strength as God calls us to be. We have a Goliath problem but there are thousands of Davids in our nation who can, with God’s grace, bring this giant down. What do you say America?

    If God be for us who can be against us?

    Jeff, your article today nearly brought tears to my eyes. *Applause*. Very well stated.

    With that said, we need to take this to the grassroots. Have people like YOU and ME (that are working to live, not living to work and are FAR from RICH) be the face of Conservatism. We need to show those that are teetering that the values Conservatives stand by are what this country was made of. Not the values of the likes of Pelosi, Reid, Obama….

    Furthermore, we need to find experts that can break down this bill line by line, word by word in layman’s terms so that our fellow Americans can UNDERSTAND the rights and liberties this “stimulus bill” will take away from us. We then need to send the breakdown in every form possible: snail mail, email, newspaper editorials. Hit it hard. Go door to door if we have to.

    This country is full of people that believe they are entitled to all that they have and are very used to living beyond their means. I don’t know that once they figure out their basic rights are being stripped of them with the passage of ONE bill that they will take too kindly to it.

    200+ years ago, this started with a group of people that all shared one common idea. It is time again, for the “common folk” to stand together and rally.

    I think people are finally starting to see…this is beyond hope and change. This is now about the country that we love so dearly and all that it represents.

    The way to stop all this is for the states to complete their action against the government in their 10th amendment decision.
    The Constitution of the United States, delegated to Congress a power to punish treason, counterfeiting the securities and current coin of the United States, piracies, and felonies committed on the high seas, and offences against the law of nations, slavery, and no other crimes whatsoever.
    If this doesn’t work the states need to secede from the union and become independent countries again. Most of the so called ‘RED’ states would be able to succeed in doing this, but the ‘blue’ states would fail.
    I saw a website on the Internet showing how California was going to secede but do not recall where I found it.

    Has anyone heard about this ridicilous action by Obama behind our backs? One more insult added to injury for the American taxpayer and conscientious community!

    Apparently, on January 27th, Obamanation passed an Executive Order for $20.3 million in migration assistance to the Palestine refugees and conflict victims in Gaza. These are Palestinians with ties to Hamas to resettle in the United States. We are to give them free housing and food, etc. That, of course, includes free medical. More waiting lists for those of us who are legal citizens and who are elderly, folks!

    Babylon has fallen has fallen, the whore who drinks from the cup of iniquity! Come out from her My people and be ye separate. Stand firm for the Lord Thy God. The Three Angels’ messages must be proclaimed with a loud cry! Wake up America and sound the alarm!

    Any one have any ideas? We need our GOP leaders and those of other party affiliations who are concerned, to do something. That is, after all, their job! Let’s hear some ideas. What are our leaders doing besides Huckabee and his gatherings? We need more than this.

If we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy.”
    ~Thomas Jefferson

    The Congressional Progressive Congress is devoted to the replacement of our financial system and the paradigm under which it has traditionally operated. That is their mission. They now dominate and control virtually aspect of the Democratic Party in government today.

    Seeking to convert the nation to a foreign economic theory and policy by promulgating policies or withholding actions which sabotage our financial institutions and markets may be “just politics” to some, but at some point should we not question what actions arising from Democrats in office and their party officials constitute sedition and Treason?

    We need a grand jury set loose upon Congress; upon Charles Schumer and the Indy Mac sabotage; upon Jarrett Rezko Auchi Saddam Annan; upon the Congressional Progressive Caucus and their beloved Fannies; upon SEIU, ACORN and the DSA; upon the foreign monies that flowed to through the political parties into the pockets of the corporate media.

    There is only one thing unusual about this current financial cycle: the stench of sedition, syndicalism and foreign interests.

    We need a grand jury or two set loose to clear the air.

    Thank you DAB in texas- from Mom of 4 – This is my sentiment ! we can no longer talk !!!!!!! We have to move and use our constitutional rights to fire every last hypocrite- and this may take physical action – if enough descend on DC in a planned effort we may avoid force . You see I think so many cannot connect the dots – our country and its laws all stem from the ten commandments and contrary to mans over blown ego – GOD is in control ….. we act like its all up to us but pray like its all up to God – in otherwords – prayer and action are necessary !!!! Thank you again .

    People know the difference between what’s right and wrong, they just choose to be self-centered and corruption, hardening their conscience and heart moment by moment.
    Let’s be active and unite in prayer 1st.
    May God lift up some leaders empowered by HIS Grace and Mercy to help lead us out of this.
    I agree with those comments which focus on “what We can do” to stop those who rob, rape and pillage.
    Now is a good time.

    Great article, Jeff. I especially like the optimism you wove into it with the reality we face. I love Jim DeMint, and think we need to hang on and not give up hope, because at least some conservatives have seen the light, so perhaps this scorched earth policy of the left is what has been needed to ignite a fire in the hearts of true conservatives.

    I do believe, however, that states need to continue to pursue the 10 Amendment right to retain certain powers. I volunteered to write a similar bill for Colorado, but Sen. Schultheis said they have already submitted their quota of bills for this session. Hopefully it can get done next session.

    We need to keep the momentum going so that when it is time for conservatives to rise up out of the ashes, we’ll be on board with them. With Jim DeMint, I think the resurrection is already starting to take place.

    Thanks for your insight and passion for conservative values, Jeff.

    I read this and all the comments and cried. I agree now is the time to do, not just talk.

    Keep pressure on your Republican senators and representatives so they will hear loud and clear that we don’t just want them in power but that we insist on conservative principles.

    Jeff, can you verify the comments regarding a massive run on banks last September? Many of us have been speculating that all of this financial “crisis” business has been fabricated to, first, reverse the momentum that the McCain candidacy was gaining after the convention, and second, to give the Obama administration cover for passing thier socialist agenda. This is the first that I’ve heard to substantiate that speculation, so I’d really like to have that information verified.

    We all seem to be concluding the same thing – Let Freedom Ring ! Today is a day of reckoning ! Now – seizing the fire within and using it to make the madness stop is the objective – how do we reach and achieve this objective – we do have more opportunity at our disposal than the colonists – we have instant contact – but we are all inside this computer and that will not stop the corruption – action will – again the constitution provides remedy for government gone bad !! Perhaps the idea of a Constitutional Convention is the process – only used once in 1787 to Amend the Constitution
    there is a movement already in motion – I am not clear about the facts but I believe” wethepeople”.com or one of the conservative sites has highlighted this event in process – Bob Schultz -is involved ? Idea -

It perhaps is our hope to achieve control over the insanity in DC and the runaway freight train attempting to hit all Americans head on !!!! Interested to hear comments ? ……..

    I know no more than any of you. I know there was indeed a “run” on the banks — but I don’t know where it came from.

    Sorry!

  32. Let us move forward says:

    I thought that the banking crisis was unusually fortuitous for the Obama campaign. Mr. O seemed very calm during the whole thing. Do you suppose he knew what was going on? Think of the people that endorsed him too. Where was George at the time? Is he a citizen? Conspiracy in Spades!

    Who else would have had the financial clout to withdraw so much so quickly? The Saudis? I would like an answer to this question.

    The Iranians?

    A hacker in Africa?

    A Russian Hacker?

    If this is true, Who?

    “Manufactured Crisis?” in Sept. Who may have had the money,opportunity,goal? Yes, George Soros and who does he have in his breast pocket? Right again, BHO President of the United States of America.
    Did Soros practice on the British economy? Yes, he did, created quite a problem too.
    Now he and the others of his ilk are doing essentially the same thing here to US.
    Is the President in agreement with him? Damn right he is.

    Dee, I have a cousin in Germany, too. Her sister lives in England. I’l email them what you said about roof/rain tax.

    And, BTW, my 6th cousin who was my friend before we learned we were kin, died this a.m. Being the genealogist and historian that she was, she can finally break through all of her brick walls and ask her ancestors all the questions she likes, now that she’s with them. Maybe she’ll do some “haunting” for us conservatives! (Something needs to scare them.)

    Let us move forward,

    Obama, Biden, the Clintons, Bush, Chaney ALL knew what was going on September 15th when Soros made his run on the American banks, because they’re all part of the New World Order. Look up Council on Foreign Relations for PARTIAL membership lists (they’re secretive, so it’s impossible to find the complete list), estimated to be 600-700 people. Here are a few sites:

    http://www.biblebelievers.org.au/cfrall1.htm

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Council_on_Foreign_Relations

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Members_of_the_Council_on_Foreign_Relations

    http://www.stopthenorthamericanunion.com/CFRMembers.html

    http://www.jeremiahproject.com/newworldorder/nworder06.html

    http://www.nndb.com/org/505/000042379/

    Also, Aaron Russo said in an interview available on Google videos EVERYONE should watch, that some people are invited to become members unaware of the Council’s occult nature, just as few Masons were/are aware of the Masonic Lodge’s Satanic history.

    Though George Soros is a very wealthy man, his run on the banks wasn’t done with his money alone–he had the full cooperation of the Bilderbergers, who collectively own the overwhelming majority of the world’s wealth. The remaining Rothschilds ALONE own, directly or indirectly, over half of the wealth of the entire world.

    Is all this becoming clearer to you yet?

    Here are the only search engines left that claim to be TRACKING-FREE, so if they ask for donations it’s a good idea to give a little something, or we’ll soon be left with NO options:
