Both Republican & Democrats aren’t what they used to be..they have been taken over by the “one worlder’s” they ALL are pushing for and are puppets of the BIG BANKERS, READ THE BIBLE IT IS ALL IN THERE…It has been in planning for centurys but came on the scene with Carter…the jerk…Both parties are BAD….

      DaveH, you’re constantly contradicting yourself. You just posted an article about SOCIALISM. This is exactly what you said:

      August 7, 2011 at 10:46 pm DaveH says:
      Wasn’t Sweden on your list, Mark? Here’s some reality, instead of your conjecture (from a guy who lived there): http://mises.org/daily/4936

      You intentionly left the title out, but here it is anyway, “STAGNATING SOCIALIST SWEEDEN”.

    This guy inhaled too much diesel smoke a some point or another. War for Oil? how much oil are we getting from Iraq? That’s right, about ZERO! and what kind of discount are we getting for that oil we’re not getting? That’s right, ZERO! And what happened a while back when our ambassador asked Iraq to kick us some oil to pay for our two wards there? That’s right! He was told to get out of Iraq. Do these facts bother this fool at all? Nope. He’s got his agenda, reality has another.

    • DaveH

      Apparently you need to listen to the tape again. He didn’t say we were getting oil from Iraq.
      He said that we were stopping Iraq from invading countries where we were getting oil. If you don’t think we are fighting those wars for the benefit of the military industrial complex, oil, and the Politicians Power, you need to do some more thinking and reading. Our soldiers are being used as cannon fodder for the benefit of certain Big Businesses and Politicians.

    I’m all for real capitalism. It has taken a beating because our masters of deceit (elected scum in Washington) manipulate capitalism 24/7. Then they turn around and blame everything on that which THEY have manipulated.
    Capitalism works. Politicians DON’T. And the puppet masters who manipulate our elected swine are the ones to keep your eyes on, folks.

    What rock did the liberal progressives dig this snail ship from under ? He says he started teaching , I can only assume that his exposure to the liberal progressive teachers was where his extreme susceptability to propaganda took over his sense of reality and turned his brain o mush . The terrorists forced Bush into War with the 9/11 attacks , Libya was strictly a democratic adventure entered for no apparent reason and I don’t know what the forth war he is talking about is . Oh , yes , Bush the firsts war to cut off Hussian. Yeah , that was none of our business too . But Irag was guilty of training the attackers and Afghanistan was the closest thing they had to a home base . This guy is an idiot .

    Predatory Capitalism is the fruit of Globalization, which destroyed our soverign borders and made the word “Protection” a curse word. Through out history, no sane intelligent people would agree to a borderless country. Fenced cities and protected borders are biblically inspired! But now “Protectionism” is a curse word, having all the TV talking heads nodding in agreement, of thats is so wrong!!! With protected borders, and with the refusal to buy into globalization, we would now have hundreds of thousands of Mom & Pop Operations, selling products “Made in the USA”. Big Money & Large Incs. would have been forced to pay Americans to build all the stuff they would be selling. We would thus be standing as a nation tall,free,& wealthy as that city Reagan referenced. While we all celebrated the walls falling in Berlin, we are now grieving the fall of our walls!!
    And as for as the “War for Oil”, I agree with above comments; We have never recieved a quart of oil for all the blood and treasure of our efforts. Our leaders are so washed in the guilt-laden, multi-cultural, “Just win their hearts and minds BS” that they have been conditioned to become the suckers that so desire to be loved and thought of by the world community as “GOOD”. But “GOOD”, has 1 to many O’s; the focus was to be of “GOD”, whom we having denied, in policy, and in culture thereby becoming the “UNITED SUCKERS of AMERICA”.

      You, my friend, should be published, front page. Wake up America and hear this.

      • Al Sieber

        I second that.

    • DaveH

      First he needs to learn that the word Protectionism refers to trade barriers meant to protect certain companies from competition.

      • DaveH

        And it never leads to any good. Like welfare it just enables the Protected companies to become lazy and uncompetitive. Those Politically connected companies then profit at the expense of the consumers and the taxpayers. And, of course, the targeted countries then strike back against our exporters which hurts that segment of our business.
        Protectionism was one of several factors that brought us the Great Depression.
        For those who honestly don’t understand the reality of Protectionism, just think about the fact that a traditional war measure is to blockade a country so that they can neither import nor export goods. That is done to bring the country to its knees economically. Now why would anybody in their right minds want to do that to ourselves voluntarily?

    Because of the Fed and the mafia of traitors that underpins it, the United States is forced to borrow money, because it cannot create it. America can only issue bonds. A mountain of debt has been created, supposedely backed by ‘full faith and trust’. In fact it is backed by America’s hard assets, which have been secretly handed over to the bankers. A Warburg owns the lion’s share of the Backen reserve. The oil of north Alaska is kept underground for BP and the Rotshchilds. Most of American’s underground wealth has been signed over. The only hope for the United States. These men who have been trained to attack other countries to get oil for the foreign bankers need to find the courage to save their own country. It is the military that the bankers fear most. Not the man in the street. Every officer should read what Dr. Alan Sabrosky has to say. Admittedly he woke up very late in the day, but he did wake up. Every officer needs to wake up or the United States will be finished. As the Chairman of the Joint Chief, Admiral Mullens said not so long ago, the Federal Debt is the number one national security issue. After the removal of Obama, the next US government must claw back the country’s stolen wealth. Only the military can save America.

    This is a corrected version of the previous post. Because of the Fed and the mafia of traitors that underpins it, the United States is forced to borrow money because it cannot create it. America can only issue bonds. A mountain of debt has been created, supposedly backed by ‘full faith and trust’. In fact it is backed by America’s hard assets, which have been secretly handed over to the bankers. A Warburg owns the lion’s share of the Backen reserve. The oil of north Alaska is kept underground for BP and the Rothschilds. Obama bans drilling to keep the oil as collateral for the bankers. Most of American’s underground wealth has already been signed over. Just look at the biodiversity maps. Protecting the environment is a trick for getting the Americans off their own land. The only hope for the United States is the military. These men who have been trained to attack other countries to get oil for the foreign bankers need to find the courage to save their own country. It is the military that the bankers fear most. Not the man in the street. Every officer should read what Dr. Alan Sabrosky has to say. He woke up very late in the day, but he did wake up. Every officer needs to wake up or the United States will be finished. As the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Admiral Mullens, said not so long ago, the Federal Debt is the number one national security issue. After the removal of Obama, the next US government must claw back the country’s stolen wealth. Only the military can save America. This should be a question of honor for every American officer.

    • Al Sieber

      Good post Gordon, I agree.

  • Truth Seeker

    Hey Gordon,
    I don’t know who in the heck you are, but you nailed it. One day
    I am going to try to figure out why some people can get it and some
    cannot—-no matter what. You “GET IT” Gordon. God Bless You. I
    hope you are in Dr. Ron Paul’s camp, or you are planning on running
    for something——Congress perhaps.

  • Circling T. Drain

    Interesting… the ‘republicans’ use force outside our borders…. the ‘democrats’ use force inside our borders… each to further their goals. Can you say “where are we going? and why are we in this basket?”…
