Sibel Edmonds: Bearing The Fruits Of Truth On Global Governance Corruption

Who’s Afraid of Sibel Edmonds?

I would say...

Christian Zionists, Judaics, Churchianity, Congress, AIPAC, ADL, AJC, NATO,
The European Union, Brussels Belgium, Marc Grossman, Turkey, Former U.S. President George Bush Jr., Former Vice President Dick Cheney, Former President Bill Clinton, ISI—Pakistani Intelligence, The Israeli Embassy, The American Turkish Council, The Assembly of Turkish American Associations, Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, Pentagon Officials, The RAND Corporation, The New York Times, Northrop Grumman, James Baker, Brent Scowcroft, Wolfowitz, Defense Department officials, Richard Armitage, Operation 9/11 Members, Former Iraqi Officials, The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, nuclear facilities like Sandia or Los Alamos, Former House Speaker Dennis Hastert, Bob Livingston, Dan Burton, Tom Lantos, Douglas Feith, the Monica Lewinsky scandal entourage, Foreign Espionage Associates In Chicago, Democratic Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, U.S. Government - Turkish Paramilitary Groups, Drug/Gun Money, Military Drug Distribution Centers, Chicago, Paterson, New Jersey, The State Secrets Privilege aherents, President Barack Hussein Obama, Germany and Italy.

Sibel Edmonds has a story to tell. She went to work as a Turkish and Farsi translator for the FBI five days after 9/11. Part of her job was to translate and transcribe recordings of conversations between suspected Turkish intelligence agents and their American contacts. She was fired from the FBI in April 2002 after she raised concerns that one of the translators in her section was a member of a Turkish organization that was under investigation for bribing senior government officials and members of Congress, drug trafficking, illegal weapons sales, money laundering, and nuclear proliferation. She appealed her termination, but was more alarmed that no effort was being made to address the corruption that she had been monitoring.

Germany's Oktoberfest Shelters Voters Under Fire Intoxicating Angela To Global Governance E.U. Lead

Since 1978, I've observed, comprised and assembled various color pallets of today's Global Governance which still finds most commentators aloof on various rabbit trails that The Trust wishes all to find. This weekend should have pointed many to the obvious, but, like many rabbit trails it wasn't pieced lets try this again.

In Germany, a very very important election occurred.

An election marked by the ghost or apparition of Osama Bin Laden's entourage in various videos.

"Leave Afghanistan or lose Oktoberfest".

A "No Fly Zone" over Oktoberfest was issued.

Does this sound familiar?

This tactic has been used many many times before and The Trust knows that, have we forgotten already?

Go back to Thursday when the Prime Minister of New Zealand said to NATO that time lines for Afghanistan troop withdrawal are now being considered and planned.

"It's a mistake", implores Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

When Zombie's Attack Which Solution Would You Choose, International Relations Or U.S. Constitutionality?


International Relations
U.S. Constitutionality

In the article from BBC news titled, (WARNING GRAPHIC ZOMBIE IN LINK)
By Pallab Ghosh
Science correspondent, BBC News

, it states that "if zombies actually existed, an attack by them would lead to the collapse of civilization unless dealt with quickly and aggressively."

Daniel W. Drezner, professor of international politics at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University tackles this conundrum through the Global Governance looking glass.

Drezner gives us todays position of consensual politics in his Foreign Policy piece (WARNING GRAPHIC ZOMBIES IN LINK) How International Relations Theory Would Cope With A Zombie Uprising.

Today's political maze of global consensus leaves out many important questions as well as alternatives in dealing with zombies.

But then again that's International Relations for you; one consensual solution for all, or else.

Huckabee in the Holy Land: A Christian Zionist Campaign

By Shalom Goldman

September 20, 2009

The religious right’s preferred presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee recently returned from a visit to Israel. What prompted Time to call it his first campaign stop in the 2012 race?

Until recently, leaders of the organized American Jewish Community were wary of a Huckabee presidential candidacy. His 2008 description of himself as a “Christian leader” raised hackles at both the American Jewish Committee and the Anti-Defamation League. Abe Foxman, director of the ADL, wrote an open letter to Huckabee in which he stated that “we presume you seek the presidency in order to be the leader of all Americans, regardless of the faith they hold.”

Mike Huckabee's Israeli sponsor American Friends of Ateret Cohanim provides funding for Yeshiva Ateret Cohanim, a school of higher education in Israel. Ateret Cohanim´s Yeshiva was founded in 1978 in the heart of the Old City. The Yeshiva is located in the historic Torath Chaim Yeshiva on HaGai Street, just opposite the Temple Mount. The Ateret Cohanim Yeshiva, Ateret Yerushalyim, headed by Rav Shlomo Aviner, is the spiritual focus for the return of Jews to their homes in the "Moslem" (once known as the Mixed) Quarter. Today this historic building serves as the main study hall for 150 students from all over the country, all of whom serve in the army. These boys dedicate themselves to Torah (which torah????? read Michael Hoffman's Judaism Discovered to find out, you will be surprised.) study out of love for Jerusalem and the Jewish people. Source.

Wayne Scales, director of the new Center for Space Science and Engineering Research

"Being an expert in computational space plasma physics has involved Dr. Wayne Scales in projects from analyzing the effects of high-altitude nuclear detonations to creating and perturbing charged dust clouds in space...

The project's goal is to develop novel techniques of generating electromagnetic waves that interact with the radioactive particles and scatters them out of the radiation belt, he says. "One way to do that is to use a big, high-power transmitter on the ground that sends a high power radio wave. Another option would be to use a satellite that has a high-power transmitter, he says."

Thursday, 10 September 2009 20:13 UK

Confirmed: British Soldier died from exposure depleted uranium during Gulf War. The death of a former soldier from colon cancer was "more likely than not" caused by his exposure to depleted uranium during the first Gulf War, an inquest has heard.

Stuart Dyson, 39, of Brownhills, West Midlands, died last June - 17 years after his involvement in the 1991 war.

He was exposed to depleted uranium from anti-tank shells near the wrecks of tanks, the inquest heard.

Utah is calling for a halt of radioactive depleted uranium to its landfills.

Bank Failures Scores 94. End Of Year May See 300+ More. FDIC May Tap Treasury.

U.S. Bank Failures Rise To 94

By John Letzing, MarketWatch

SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Two Irwin Union Bank subsidiaries in Kentucky and Indiana were closed by regulators Friday, bringing the total number of U.S. bank failures this year to 94 and punching an $850 million hole in the federal deposit insurance fund.

First Bank Failures Announced In Indiana; Kentucky

The first bank failures in Indiana and Kentucky were announced, Friday. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation announced it was appointed receiver for Louisville, Kentucky-based Irwin Union Bank, F.S.B., and Columbus, Indiana-based Irwin Union Bank and Trust Co., by the Office of Thrift Supervision and the Indiana Department of Financial Instutions, respectively.

The two failed banks have a total of 27 bank branches and are subsidiaries of the Columbus, Indiana-based Irwin Financial Corporation. Irwin Union Bank and Trust Co. had a total of $2.7 billion in assets and deposits of $2.1 billion, and Irwin Union Bank had total assets of $493 million and deposits of $441 million as of Aug. 31, of this year.

More Bank Failures Coming

Read more:

So far this year, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. has shut down 92 banks. That compares with 25 banks last year. Business Week notes that this might be seen as surprisingly few closures. During the last banking crisis, 381 banks were seized in 1990, 268 in 1991, and 179 in 1992. But the crisis isn't over, and the pace of bank failures is picking up.

Three banks failed over the last few days, including Corus Bank of Illinois. Since July 1, the FDIC has closed down 47 banks. Meredith Whitney predicted not too long ago that 300 banks would fail this year. That's looking more and more prescient every week. Real estate, retail and especially commercial, remains the culprit. Construction loans are also creaking right now.

FDIC chief considers tapping Treasury for funds

WASHINGTON — The chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. says she is "considering all options, including borrowing from Treasury," to replenish the dwindling fund that insures bank deposits.

"I never say never," FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair told an audience at Georgetown University Friday.

Bair's remarks go beyond what she said just three weeks ago when asked about tapping the Treasury after the fund that insures regular deposit accounts up to $250,000 hit its lowest point since 1992, at the height of the savings-and-loan crisis. "Not at this point in time," she said on Aug. 27.

The Superstructure

"If we live in Spirit, in Spirit also we should be conformed to."—Galatians 5:25.

HE two most important things in our holy religion are the life of faith and the walk of faith.

He who shall rightly understand these is not far from being a master in experimental theology, for they are vital points to a Christian. You will never find true faith unattended by true godliness; on the other hand, you will never discover a truly holy life which has not for its root a living faith upon the righteousness of Christ.

Woe unto those who seek after the one without the other! There are some who cultivate faith and forget holiness; these may be very high in orthodoxy, but they shall be very deep in condemnation, for they hold the truth in unrighteousness; and there are others who have strained after holiness of life, but have denied the faith, like the Pharisees of old, of whom the Master said, they were "whitewashed sepulchres."

We must have faith, for this is the foundation; we must have holiness of life, for this is the superstructure. Of what service is the mere foundation of a building to a man in the day of tempest? Can he hide himself therein? He wants a house to cover him, as well as a foundation for that house.

Even so we need the superstructure of spiritual life if we would have comfort in the day of doubt. But seek not a holy life without faith, for that would be to erect a house which can afford no permanent shelter, because it has no foundation on a rock.

Let faith and life be put together, and, like the two abutments of an arch, they will make our piety enduring.

Like light and heat streaming from the same sun, they are alike full of blessing.

Like the two pillars of the temple, they are for glory and for beauty.

They are two streams from the fountain of grace; two lamps lit with holy fire; two olive trees watered by heavenly care.

O Lord, give us this day life within, and it will reveal itself without to Thy glory.
- C.H. Spurgeon

Foreign Policy - Playing The Jesus Card, The Truth About Christian Zionists

These two articles are a perfect example of stratagem and persuasion while invigorating the heart with faith and patriotism. The sheep have no shepherds as the flock is corralled. Is this too hard to decipher in the times we are living in?

Decode encrypted Judaism by purchasing Michael Hoffman's "Judaism Discovered- A Study of the Religion of Racism, Self-Worship, Superstition and Deceit", TODAY!

Evangelical pastor John Hagee addresses a crowd in Jerusalem.

Playing the Jesus Card

Why is Netanyahu courting Christian fundamentalists?


Benjamin Netanyahu has a problem. The Obama administration is insisting on a settlements freeze, and the Israeli prime minister, who is resisting such demands, is not getting the support he might have expected from the U.S. pro-Israel community. Usually, when an American President makes any sort of demand on Jerusalem, pro-Israel (primarily Jewish) organizations compel Congress to pressure the president to cease and desist. It usually works. But not this time.

So what's an Israeli leader to do? Netanyahu is resurrecting a tried and true strategy: Call on Christian fundamentalists -- who see maintaining Israel's occupation as paramount -- to galvanize popular pressure against Obama. But just like the last time he played this trick, the tactic is unlikely to work magic for Bibi anytime soon.

Blagojevich Fundraiser Found Dead

By Jesse Solomon and Justin Lear

Police are investigating the death of the former chief fundraiser for ex-Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich as a “death-suicide,” an Illinois mayor said Sunday.

Financier Christopher Kelly told police shortly before he died Saturday that he took an “overdose of drugs,” said Dwight Welch, mayor of Country Club Hills, Illinois.

Country Club Hills police found several drugs in Kelly’s black 2007 Cadillac Escalade, but they were not sure yet whether they were prescribed, Welch said. Country Club Hills is about 27 miles south of Chicago.

Kelly had recently undergone surgery and was taking drugs following the operation, Welch said. Welch said he did not know which drugs Kelly was taking.

Kelly, 51, of Burr Ridge, Illinois, was pronounced dead at Stroger hospital in Cook County at 10:46 a.m. Saturday, hospital spokesman Marcel Bright told CNN.

Newport Beach Financier Danny Pang Dies at 42

By Ruben Vives and Louis Sahagun

Newport Beach financier Danny Pang died early Saturday at a local hospital, according to the Orange County coroner’s office. The cause of death has not been determined and an autopsy is planned for Sunday, said Larry Esslinger, supervising deputy coroner.

Police officers were dispatched to Pang’s home in the 2600 block of Crestview Drive about 3:30 p.m. Friday on a “medical assistance call,” said Sgt. Doug Jones of the Newport Beach Police Department.

Pang was pronounced dead at Hoag Memorial Hospital at 5:12 a.m. Saturday, Esslinger said. He had no further details.

The 42-year-old Pang has been accused by the government of operating a Ponzi scheme and of taking at least $83 million in inflated fees, salary and loans from his investment firm before it was seized by federal regulators in April. He had denied wrongdoing.

NATO’s New Strategic Concept, A Strategic Opportunity For Israel

NATO’s New Strategic Concept, A Strategic Opportunity For Israel

August 21, 2009

Matthew Mark Horn
Special to the Jewish Times

Several years ago, we created AJCongress’ NATO-Israel Program based on the changing international security dynamic in the post 9/11 world, coupled with the fact that Israel as a Western democracy should be afforded the opportunity to become a NATO partner or member regardless of its geography. We forged a unique partnership with the Atlantic Forum of Israel, then-headed by Dr. Uzi Arad, who currently serves as Prime Minister Netanyahu’s national security advisor, and its executive director Prof. Tommy Steiner. We are the first and only Jewish organization to undertake a project that advocates for an upgrade in Israel’s formal relationship within NATO from that of a Mediterranean Dialogue participant (currently there are 7 participants) to that of a full-fledged NATO partner.

In early July 2009, I attended the launch of NATO’s new Strategic Concept held in Brussels which laid the foundation for how NATO will conduct itself over the next decade (the last one is ten years old and now dated). As the then-Secretary General de Hoop Scheffer stated, [the purpose of the new strategic concept is to] “determine how our needs and capabilities can be tailored to meet the challenges now really important for the security of our allies.” This year-plus long drafting process of the new Strategic Concept provides us with the opportunity to seek a change in NATO’s partnership structure that allows democracies such as Japan, Israel and Australia to become partners and perhaps even members. As NATO prosecutes a war outside of its traditional Euro-Atlantic area of operation in Afghanistan, it is only fitting that new partnership requirements for democracies outside Europe are incorporated in the new Strategic Concept.

NATO's New Strategic Concept: The Group of Experts on the new Strategic Concept met with Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen at NATO Headquarters for the first time and attended a special North Atlantic Council meeting.

At the NATO Summit in Strasbourg/Kehl on 4 April 2009, Heads of State and Government (HoSG) tasked the Secretary General to develop a new NATO Strategic Concept. This exercise should be completed by the time of NATO’s next Summit which is expected to take place in Lisbon in late 2010. The Summit also tasked the Secretary General to convene and lead a broad based group of qualified experts who will lay the ground for the new Strategic Concept. This will be done with the active involvement of the North Atlantic Council (NAC).

Harry Potter Family Theme Park Unveiled. Universal Orlando Wins Secret Prize!

September 15, 2009, 11:04 am

Harry Potter Theme Park to Open in Spring

By Brooks Barnes

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, the hotly anticipated new Florida theme park, will open in the spring and allow visitors to explore Hogwarts Castle, buy Quidditch equipment and drink Butterbeer.

Universal Orlando unveiled details of the park, a 20-acre addition to its Islands of Adventure property, on Tuesday in a video presentation on the Web. The resort, owned by NBC Universal, secured the theme park rights to J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books in May 2007 but has been silent about specific plans until now.

The so-called “theme park within a theme park” will be faithful to the visual landscapes of the Harry Potter films produced by Warner Brothers, which licensed the rights to Universal after a flirtation with the Walt Disney Company. “We’ve tried to include something from every book,” said Alan Gilmore, an art director for the films who is helping to oversee the theme park design.

Universal offers some details on secretive Harry Potter theme park

Who needs Spider-Man and the Incredible Hulk when you have Harry Potter?

Amid speculation as to what Disney's announced $4-billion purchase of Marvel could mean to existing theme-park licenses, Universal Orlando today unveiled details for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, a 20-acre addition to its Islands of Adventure.

The rights to the $265-million "theme park within a theme park" were secured from author J.K. Rowling in 2007, but NBC Universal has managed to keep information about the project a secret.

Wizarding World, set to open next spring, is expected to give Islands of Adventure a much-needed boost. Despite popular theme rides like Jurassic Park and the Spider-Man and Hulk roller coasters, attendance has suffered, Media Decoder reports. About 5.3 million people visited the park in 2008, compared to 17 million at the nearby Magic Kingdom.

Sunday 9-27-09 Germany's Election Day


All smiles: German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeir at their only televised political debate on Sunday before the election on Sept. 27.


Ron FraserColumnist

German Election—Each-Way Bet

September 14, 2009 | From

In two weeks, the German electorate will cast their vote for the government that will rule their nation over the next four years. The result of that election is now anyone’s guess.

Talk about a seesaw! German polls indicate that the upcoming federal election is going to be a nail-biter.

That the result will lead to another cobbling together of an unwieldy coalition of uncomfortable bedmates seems a foregone conclusion. But who will ally with whom remains an open question.

Chancellor Merkel has gone public with her intentions to dump Germany’s left-of-center Social Democrats in favor of the business-oriented Free Democratic Party (fdp). The fdp’s East German orientation may be more within her comfort zone, as she hails from Germany’s east herself.

The real question is, if more of the vote on polling day goes to the Social Democratic Party (sdp) leader, Frank Walter Steinmeier, which parties he will choose to engage with in coalition. If he looks further left and engages the Green Party and the current opposition Left Party (at present a seemingly unlikely proposition), then the most recent polls indicate the combined vote would marginally exceed that of a Christian Democrat/Christian Socialist/fdp alliance.

Merkel-Steinmeier Election Debate

'You're Like an Old Married Couple!'

By David Crossland

Sunday's TV debate between Chancellor Angela Merkel and her challenger Frank-Walter Steinmeier was billed as the highlight of the election campaign, but turned into a snore as the two uncharismatic contenders praised their cooperation over the last four years and avoided direct confrontation.

German voters had hoped that Sunday's much-hyped television debate between Chancellor Angela Merkel and her Social Democratic Party (SPD) challenger Frank-Walter Steinmeier would breathe life into the tepid election campaign that has been likened to a cotton wool fight.

Their hopes were dashed. The 90-minute encounter billed as a "TV duel" between the dispassionate German leader dubbed "Mutti" or Mummy and the gray-haired career bureaucrat was almost over when one of the four interviewers uttered in exasperation: "You're like a harmonious old married couple!"

Global Central Bank corruption, fraud and abuse with no accountability


Switzerland Number 1

Old Models Must Change For Economic Recovery To Be Sustainable

Switzerland tops the overall ranking in The Global Competitiveness Report 2009-2010.

The United States falls one place to second position, with weakening in its financial markets and macroeconomic stability. Singapore, Sweden and Denmark round out the top five.

European economies continue to prevail in the top 10 with Finland, Germany and the Netherlands following suit.

The United Kingdom, while remaining very competitive, has continued its fall from last year, moving down one more place this year to 13th, mainly attributable to continuing weakening of its financial markets.

The rankings are calculated from both publicly available data and the Executive Opinion Survey, a comprehensive annual survey conducted by the World Economic Forum together with its network of Partner Institutes (leading research institutes and business organizations) in the countries covered by the Report.

Dollar Gets Roughed Up In Unusually Heated World Economic Forum Panel

Among the more interesting moments of the World Economic Forum that wrapped up Saturday in Dalian occurred on the final morning, when a panel on Asia’s foreign-currency exposure turned into an unusually contentious discussion on the future of the U.S. dollar.

In front of CNBC cameras, Yu Yongding, an academic who was formerly an advisor to the Chinese central bank, got the discussion off on a decidedly bearish tone for the dollar, with strong criticism of public finances in the U.S.

“The U.S. has been running a current account deficit for more than 26 years now, and they are accumulating huge foreign debt, and now they are running huge budget deficits. According to very optimistic estimations, within ten years, they will continue to run budget deficits,” he said.

Yu said he strongly supports a proposal by People’s Bank of China Governor Zhou Xiaochuan to develop of a new international reserve currency based on Special Drawing Rights, a kind of synthetic currency created by the International Monetary Fund in the 1960s. But he acknowledged that the SDR cannot replace the US dollar “at this stage.”

World Economic Forum Competiveness Report drops US to #2

September 9, 8:26 AM

San Diego Economy Examiner

Mark Vargus

The World Economic Forum has produced a new study on the competitiveness of each of the worlds many nations. This report is available as a nearly 500 page pdf file, and shows some surprising elements as they downgraded the US from the most competitive economy in the world to second behind Switzerland.

And competitiveness is important as the report writer notes in the first pages as he writes:

Competitive economies are those that have in place factors driving the productivity enhancements on which their present and future prosperity is built.

And this has been the great advantage the US has maintained in the economic world and part of why the US economy is bigger than the combined economies of Japan and China (the nations with the #2 and #3 economies by annual GDP). Actually you could add in Germany (#4) and the UK and only barely beat the US. But the report indicates that the economists of the World Economic Forum are worried about the situation in the US.

Their analysis is simple, but elegant and they note:

We define competitiveness as the set of institutions, policies, and factors that determine the level of productivity of a country. The level of productivity, in turn, sets the sustainable level of prosperity that can be earned by an economy.

It’s a good point. And plays into the analysis.

9/12 Taxpayer Protest In Washington, D.C. Says "Hell No" To Global Governance

* SEPTEMBER 13, 2009, 1:21 P.M. ET

Protesters March on Washington


WASHINGTON — Tens of thousands of demonstrators descended on Capitol Hill Saturday, protesting the expansion of government spending and illustrating the network of conservative activists that has emerged in opposition to President Barack Obama's policies.

Organizers said they believed people from all 50 states came for the "Taxpayer March on Washington." Crowds filled nearly every pocket of open space near the west lawn of the Capitol, many standing and listening without a view of the stage. They marched from Freedom Plaza, adjacent to the White House, as shouts of "U.S.A." echoed through downtown Washington and marchers dressed as colonials banged drums. Some people stayed stranded on Constitution Avenue as the program began near the Capitol, unable to find room to watch the speakers.

A spokesman for D.C. Fire and Emergency Medical Services estimated the crowd at "in excess of 75,000" people. Local and federal law enforcement authorities don't provide crowd estimates.

The gathering was largely peaceful. Speakers and demonstrators said they opposed Democratic plans to overhaul health care, as well as the bank bailouts of the past year. "It's not about health care, it's about Obama seizing our freedom," said one sign. Opposition to climate-change bills moving through Congress was also on display, with coal workers in hard-hat helmets lining the front of the stage during a speech about energy.

A million or more rock Washington

Taxpayer march could be biggest rally ever in capital

Hundreds of thousands descend on Capitol

WASHINGTON – The capital was rocked today by a taxpayer march and rally that could be the biggest protest ever – potentially dwarfing the Million Man March and the Promise Keepers Rally.

Though crowd estimates vary from as low as 60,000 to 70,000 according to ABC News to a high of 2 million by London Daily Mail, photographs and videos of the march and rally demonstrate its enormity.

The taxpayers stormed Washington, D.C., today, taking their fight against excessive spending, bailouts, growth of big government

and soaring deficits to the front door of the U.S. Capitol.

All week citizens have been heading to the Hill by the busloads for the showdown today. The Tea Party Patriots' "Tea Party Express" national bus tour has been hosting a series of tea party rallies all across the nation. A caravan of buses, speakers and entertainers arrived in Washington, D.C., just in time for the march. The taxpayers have paid their own way to the event.

The White House said Friday it was unaware of the rally. President Obama has traveled to Minneapolis, Minn., to promote his health-care plans at a rally there.

But so many taxpayers showed up on Pennsylvania Avenue that the crowd ran out of room and the march was forced to begin early.

WND was at the scene to get crowd reaction and take photos of the protest.

Citizens carried hand-made signs that read:

  • 2010: Vote all incumbents out!
  • Our Constitution has termites!
  • We are under attack by our own government
  • Stop the march of socialism
  • You can put lipstick on communism, but it's still communism
  • Obamacare makes me sick
  • I'm not your ATM
  • We had a dream. We got a nightmare
  • Is this Russia?
  • You Lie!

Congratulations to everyone who participated today in the March on Washington. Whether you were on the ground in DC, at home watching CSPAN, or using social media to help get the word and photos out, pat yourselves on the back.

While Robert Gibbs stated that the President was unaware of today's events and most of the main-stream media avoided the event, anyone who watched or participated knows that over a million people came out to stand for our freedoms, constitution, and our country!

Picture taken by SGP Director of Communications, Rebecca Wales, from the stage at the March.

Unfortunately, it appears that our fight has just begun. Late yesterday, Senator Baucus came out and said that a bill is close to leaving the finance committee. He will be sharing the bill with the "Gang of Six" and hopes to push something out of committee by Tuesday.

Please make sure you get on the phone, fax, and email tomorrow and make your thoughts known to the Finance Committee. More details to follow shortly.........

As Americans awaken from good times, indifference and apathy, they are looking for leadership. Citizen activism and "grassroots" is alien to so many. Some find it intimidating and scary, but know in their hearts that we are in serious trouble and everyone must stand up and fight. On September 8, 2009, I sent out an email which Jeff Rense posted to his web site. It's short, so I'll reproduce it here:
