Shadow Mortgage Bailout Already in Progress
The majority of Americans are against a government sponsored mortgage bailout for borrowers and lenders, but that hasn't stopped the government from working behind the scenes to carry out several plans meant to transfer risk and responsibility to the public. A recent survey found that 62 percent of Americans are against a mortgage bailout. Most people want to see borrowers and lenders work out their own problems. Unfortunately, our government has other ideas. Policymakers have very carefully orchestrated a shadow mortgage bailout.

Wounded Soldier: Military Wants Part Of Bonus Back
The U.S. Military is demanding that thousands of wounded service personnel give back signing bonuses because they are unable to serve out their commitments.
To get people to sign up, the military gives enlistment bonuses up to $30,000 in some cases.
Now men and women who have lost arms, legs, eyesight, hearing and can no longer serve are being ordered to pay some of that money back.
One of them is Jordan Fox, a young soldier from the South Hills ...

CFR President: $200 Oil If War With Iran
"Richard Haass the President of the Council on Foreign Relations and Bilderberg luminary was recently interviewed by Katie Couric on the situation with Iran.

"During the interview, Haass predicted that the crisis over Iran’s nuclear program could come to a head within the next few months and that war with Iran would result in oil prices rising to $200 a barrel. Haass also made it clear that sanctions would not be effective in changing Iran’s stance on their nuclear program and that there was a real possibility of a U.S. military strike on Iran using aircraft and cruise missiles.

"When Couric specifically asked Haass if he thought we would see a war with Iran, he responded.

"I don’t think we are talking about invasion, the U.S. doesn’t have ground troops. There could be a military strike using aircraft and cruise missiles, but if you ask me over the next year or two years can I imagine the U.S. and Iran moving to conflict? The short answer is yes."

Ron Paul Prayer Bomb
November 22, 2007, Thanksgiving Day, 9:00 PM Eastern Time (-5 gmt)
We are asking for world-wide prayer for the success of the Ron Paul campaign on the day and time above.
Follow discussion here.
"In this situation of this Assembly, groping as it were in the dark to find political truth, and scarce able to distinguish it when presented to us, how has it happened, Sir, that we have not hitherto once thought of humbly applying to the Father of lights to illuminate our understandings? In the beginning of the Contest with G. Britain, when we were sensible of danger we had daily prayer in this room for the divine protection. Our prayers, Sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a superintending providence in our favor. To that kind providence we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity. And have we now forgotten that powerful friend? or do we imagine that we no longer need his assistance?"

Ron Paul's Record Online Haul
Today, Nov. 5, marks not only Paul's best fundraising haul in a single day -- approximately $3.75 million by 11 p.m. EST -- but online observers say it's also the most money raised by a candidate on the Web in a single day. And the day's not over yet. "Damn. Wow. Um, that's pretty awesome," said a stunned Jerome Armstrong who served as Howard Dean's online strategist. Armstrong, the founder of the popular blog MyDD, said Dean raised as much as $700,000 in one day toward the end of the primary race. "But not a million," Armstrong added. "What Paul is doing -- or what his supporters are doing -- is really impressive." You can view all the fundraising data here.

The Paul campaign has raised more than $6.45 million in the first five weeks of this quarter ... On Monday alone, the campaign signed up more than 21,000 new donors ... Mr. Paul has surpassed the best day of Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, who raised $3.14 million on Jan. 8 ... Mr. Paul has stood out from the Republican field for his opposition to the war in Iraq ... [H]e argues that the fight against terrorism is threatening American democracy.

"Mr. [Jesse] Benton clarified that Mr. Paul did not support blowing up government buildings. “He wants to demolish things like the Department of Education,” Mr. Benton said, “but we can do that very peacefully, in a constructive manner.”

Retired General Believes It Might Take 50 Years Before the U.S. Can Pull Out of the Middle East

Retired Gen. John Abizaid, the former commander of the U.S. Central Command, which oversees military operations in a 27-country region that covers much of the Middle East, said Monday that it might take half a century before the U.S. military could leave the region.

"... we shouldn't assume for even a minute that in the next 25 to 50 years the American military might be able to come home [from the Middle East]..."

-- Retired Gen. John Abizaid, the former commander of the U.S. Central Command in his keynote speech at the Joint Improvised Explosive Devices Defeat Organization technology outreach conference, "Abizaid Warns of 50-year U.S. Presence in Middle East," ABCNEWS --

" For bureaucratic reasons, we settled on ... weapons of mass destruction [as justification for invading Iraq]. "

"[U.S. security requires that the U.S. tolerate no rivals to its global dominance] … We endeavor to prevent any hostile power from dominating a region whose resources would, under consolidated control, be sufficient to generate global power. "
-- Paul Wolfowitz, defense official in both Bush administrations -- (3)

" America's global primacy is directly dependent on … its preponderance on the Eurasian continent. ... [The] Eurasian Balkans are [an] economic prize ... of natural gas and oil reserves. ... [America’s] primary interest ... [is to] ... ensure no single power ... controls this geopolitical space ... to prevent the emergence of a ... coalition that could ... challenge America's primacy. ... The three grand imperatives of IMPERIAL GEOSTRATEGY are to prevent collusion and maintain security dependence among the VASSALS, to keep tributaries pliant and protected, and to keep the BARBARIANS from coming together."
-- Zbigniew Brzezinski (Carter Administration National Security adviser in his book " The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and its Geostrategic Imperatives " ). --

"America ... may find it more difficult to fashion a consensus on foreign policy issues, except in the circumstance of a truly massive and widely PERCEIVED direct external threat." (emphasis added)
-- Zbigniew Brzezinski -- (4)

"Of course the common people don't want war . . . [but] all you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."
-- Herman Goering, Nazi General during the Nuremberg Trials -- (5)

"I think all strata of our society should share in this next 20 years we have ahead, which is undoubtedly going to have a lot of combat situations come up … We're not looking forward to just a little bit of combat once in a while; this is liable to be a much greater combat role than anybody ever thought we were getting into."
-- John Glenn, former Ohio Democratic Senator -- (6)

"I can't think of anything more worthy than this project of inspiring America's youth to dedication and to patriotism and to national service at a time when our country needs it, and we will need it ... for a good long time ... it's not going to be over anytime soon."
-- Paul Wolfowitz, Deputy Defense Secretary --

"Creative destruction ... both within our own society and abroad ... [foreigners] seeing America undo traditional societies may fear us, for they do not wish to be undone ... They must attack us in order to survive, just as we must destroy them to advance our historic mission."
-- Michael Ledeen, in his publication, 'The War Against the Terror Masters', American Enterprise Institute --

"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed, and thus clamorous to be led to safety, by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."
