Who to vote OUT in November: Just about all of them By Anne Wilder Chamberlain
Who to vote OUT in November: Just about all of them
By Anne Wilder Chamberlain
Very few members of the House of Representatives had the guts to vote against the bailout
AND against Illegal Wiretapping (HR 6304 - FISA Amendment Act of 2008)
AND against extending the NAFTA trade model to Peru (giving corporations increased rights to deforest, drill, and mine more rainforests, exploit more poor, and outsource more US jobs),
AND against HCR 362, to place an embargo on Iran, paving the way for war.
These representatives were the only ones to either vote against all four unconstitutional bills, or abstain from voting for one reason or another:
Raul Grijalva (D-AZ)
Fortney Stark, Fortney [D-CA] No Vote- FISA, NAY on all others
Lucille Roybal-Allard, Lucille [D-CA]
Grace Napolitano [D-CA]
Linda Sanchez [D-CA]
William Jefferson [D-LA]
William Delahunt [D-MA]
Timothy Walz [D- MN]
Carol Shea-Porter [D-NH]
Donald Payne [D-NJ]
Tom Udall [D-NM]
José Serrano [D-NY]
Maurice Hinchey [D-NY]
Walter Jones [R-NC] no vote on FISA, NAY on all others
Marcy Kaptur, Marcy [D-OH]
Dennis Kucinich, Dennis [D-OH]
Peter DeFazio [D-OR]
Ron Paul, Ronald [R-TX] no vote on FISA, NAY on all others
Robert Scott [D-VA]
Steve Kagen [D-WI]
With the exception of these few brave souls, all but about thirty legislators who voted against the bail-out voted for extending NAFTA into Peru and Colombia, and 22 of those who voted for neither voted in favor of "legalized" government spying. Although 238 legislators co-sponsored HCR 362 to blockade and precipitate war in Iran, including eight Democrats who voted against all these other issues, the bill was defeated as of 10-13-08, as a result of constituent phone calls and emails, according to DownsizeDC.org.
It is interesting to note that Lynn Woolsey and most of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (www.cpc.lee.house.gov), a group of about 100 Democrat House Members who have, up until now, been predominantly voting in alignment with the desires of the people, including opposition to NAFTA, voted for the bail-out bill despite the fact that they all signed a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sept. 24, 2008, stating, "First and Foremost, the same Wall Street speculators and investors who are principally responsible for having caused this avoidable financial crisis and profited from it must now be required to pay for it, not U.S. taxpayers."
Why the sudden change of heart? Could this have anything to do with what happened to N.Y. Governor Elliot Spitzer? Less than 30 days after he wrote the article Predatory Lenders’ Partner in Crime, or How the Bush Administration Stopped the States from Stepping In to Help Consumers in the Washington Post, (Page A25, February 14, 2008) Spitzer’s political career was destroyed. Remember the $4000-a-night "escort," the frontpage international media coverage and how his bank account transactions were accessed, and his reputation destroyed? Remember how he resigned as governor, in shame, a week later?
Then, if you still don't connect the dots with the bailout and a blackmail scheme carried out by the Treasury on Congress, think again. Someone with a "voice" pointed out the perpetrators months ago and outlined the very plot that is unfolding this time. So his voice was taken away before he could cause more problems. Do you not see the depth of this conspiracy?
Who has the power to so completely destroy a sitting governor? According to the Rollye James Show on October 16, 2008 the bail-out debt is now triple the $700 billion it started as since the Federal Government has begun buying out the major banks whether they wanted it or not.
Where is the federal government getting the money? It is being "imagined" into existence – just like it has been since the Federal Reserve Act was passed in 1913.
According to John Hammell ( www.IAHF.com ), "there isn't even remotely enough money in circulation to pay off all the debt. Unless huge numbers of people across the USA and the world grasp what our Globalist would-be masters are trying to do right now, and take concerted steps to outflank them, the end result will be disastrous, we'll find ourselves completely enslaved, with government totally controlling all business just as they've just seized total control of banking, with no oversight.
"END THE FED!" he says. "On November 22, 1910, a malevolent creature, The Federal Reserve with its fractional reserve banking scam) was conceived in the darkness. Ninety eight years after its illegitimate inception, we will gather at the gates of its lair and signal the beginning of its end." (see page 2)
DownsizeDC.org writes. "We need to continue to pressure Congress on old issues as we prepare for a long fight on the host of government interventions surrounding the Big Bailout. We must not allow old transgressions to be forgotten, and become locked in place, because the politicians have diverted our attention to their latest set of crises."
Be a part of the solution. Get involved. Take to the streets. Pester your Congressmen, or better yet, VOTE THEM OUT, and replace them with people who will End the Fed. If they all stand up together on this issue, they cannot all be murdered or discredited, can they? Roll call votes on the issues can be found at www.thomas.gov and at www.GovTrack.us
