The US Is On The Verge Of Utter Financial Collapse And Martial Law

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” 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.
