According to the Congressional Budget Office, the House Health Care bill would cost $894 billion over 10 years and extend insurance coverage to 36 million, covering 96 percent of Americans. It is expected to cut the deficit by $30 billion in the first 10 years according to Organizing for America http://my.barackobama.com/page/community/post/CloeAxelson/gGMy2r

This morning, Speaker Nancy Pelosi will unveil(ed)  the re-tooled Affordable Health Care for America Act (HR 3962). (Read the bill HERE.) with props to http://wonkroom.thinkprogress.org/2009/10/29/details-house/ who notes that the legislation on the floor next week, with a final vote before “Veterans Day,” November 11th. At the moment, “House Democrats do not have firm commitment from enough lawmakers to guarantee passage of their bill.” One whip count has shown 23 centrist Democrats intend to vote against any health bill. Assuming that all Republicans vote against it, the bill can lose at least 38 Democrats and still pass the chamber.

From The Republican address on health care, delivered by Dr. Charles Boustany (R-LA) following President Obama’s speech to a Joint Session of Congress-

I read the bill Democrats passed through committee in July. It creates 53 new government bureaucracies, adds hundreds of billions to our national debt, and raises taxes on job-creators by $600 billion. And, it cuts Medicare by $500 billion, while doing virtually nothing to make the program better for our seniors.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xkbZByZCvKU

Pretty lame that you have to dig through the site for the last health care republican response while Harry Reid, a democrat is right on the ball and front and center at in a new Web video posted Thursday, making the case for a public health insurance option and appeals to voters across the country to contact Washington to “push hard” for its inclusion in the final bill.   Read more at: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/10/29/reid-calls-on-americans-c_n_339054.html.  If nothing else, Democrats have mastered the use of the Internet and every social bookmarking site in existence while with the exception of a few individuals GOP Republicans most certainly are lazy and inept.

The GOP Solutions for Healthcare’s  homepage at http://www.gop.gov/solutions/healthcare hasn’t been updated since Summer- barring a few links at the bottom and following Twitter Accounts from John Boehner at http://twitter.com/GOPLeader  where he offers:

10 Facts Every American Should Know About Speaker Pelosi’s 1,990-Page Gov’t Takeover of Health Care http://gopleader.gov/News/DocumentSingle.aspx?DocumentID=152063

“I’m asking you to believe,  Not just in my ability, to bring about real change in Washington…I am asking you to believe in yours,”  President Barack Obama.  We are coming to believe President Obama’s changes are critical to future of America and her sovereignty and we are not alone-

The narrative of a President who is too pliable has been growing in volume since the summer, much to the chagrin of the White House. Nor is it coming only from the right. There are those on the left who feel let down by Obama and are infuriated by his “political pragmatism”. They object, for instance, when he refuses to push aggressively for the so-called “public option” to compete with private insurers in a new health care system, or when he declines to meet with the Dalai Lama in Washington because his agenda with China is more important to him. They even don’t like it when he brushes off a member of Congress openly calling him a liar as being unimportant.http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/obama-twelve-months-on-the-star-falls-back-to-earth-1811148.html

 absolute bullshit

In true transparency of government Politico points out the contents of the bill with text like – 

“(a) Outpatient Hospitals – (1) In General – Section 1833(t)(3)(C)(iv) of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1395(t)(3)(C)(iv)) is amended – (A) in the first sentence – (i) by inserting “(which is subject to the productivity adjustment described in subclause (II) of such section)” after “1886(b)(3)(B)(iii); and (ii) by inserting “(but not below 0)” after “reduced”; and (B) in the second sentence, by inserting “and which is subject, beginning with 2010 to the productivity adjustment described in section 1886(b)(3)(B)(iii)(II)”.

Republican Rep. Joe Barton, who is Texan, said the bill is “about four reams of paper” that add up to the American public “getting reamed.” http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1009/28904.html

Adding more wasted taxpayer dollars- the U.S. has spent $1.5 billion for the 250 million swine flu vaccines that the government has ordered so far and will be distributing free to doctors, pharmacies and schools. In addition, Congress has set aside more than $10 billion this year to research flu viruses, monitor H1N1’s progress and educate the public about prevention. http://abcnews.go.com/Business/big-business-swine-flu/Story?id=8820642&page=1  Hopefully with good intention, the program has resulted in the fact most 1 out of 5 children have already had H1N1 Swine and the vast majority of vaccines will not be available until after the Swine Flu Season has peaked- https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/10/28/swine-flu-vaccines-unused-government-healthcare-wakeup-call/

Where are Joe Wilson and James Traficant when you need them? https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/09/10/joe-wilson-apology-fingers-crossed/  “You Lie ” and “Beam me up,” come to mind as this reform bill comes from the depths of  hell for small business, taxpayers and patients.

Jim Traficant Free From Jail, Free To Speak Out

Former Congressman Jim Traficant of Ohio is free to speak out about the government once again, having never issued any statements from prison.  Traficant served 17 years in Congress.  In July of 2002 he  received an eight year prison sentence after being convicted of racketeering, bribery, obstruction of justice and tax evasion. The House, using the trial transcript, expelled him.

Traficant refused to apply for clemency or a reduction in his sentence, saying that to do so would force him to admit his guilt and apologize for his crimes.  He says he did not commit any crimes, so he would not admit to them and was not going to apologize for something he says he did not do.  He did not want his family to see him in prison and he and his wife, Tish went 7 years without seeing each other.

Traficant is famous for his unique one minute “beam me up” speeches, many listed here at http://www.thememoryhole.org/traficant/ Now a private citizen on probation, Traficant has already began speaking out about the government and what he thinks needs to be fixed at a sold out, welcome home appreciation party held Sunday, September 6, 2009 in his hometown of The Mahoning Valley-Youngstown, Ohio.

Traficant is scheduled to be on Fox News’  On the Record at 10 p.m. ET Thursday, September 10, 2009, hosted by Greta Van Susteren.  

As you know, we went to Ohio today to interview former Congressman Jim Traficant.  He got out of prison about a week ago and gave us a long interview today (you will see tomorrow night on ON THE RECORD at 10pm.) What was rather interesting was how many people went up to Traficant and hugged him and thanked him.  I pulled out my camera to grab some of the citizen meetings for you so that you can see for yourself:  http://gretawire.blogs.foxnews.com/2009/09/09/sneak-peek-jim-traficant/?action=late-new&order=asc.  His hair still appears to have its trademarked weed whacker look in this photo-

Traficant’s more famous speech, “The Bankruptcy of the United States” delivered on the floor of Congress in 1993 proclaimed:

“The United States Federal government has been dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act, March 9, 1933, declared by President Roosevelt. The receivers of the United States bankruptcy are the International bankers, via the United Nations, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. All United States offices, officials and departments are now operating within a de facto status in name only under Emergency War powers. This new form of government is known as a Democracy (instead of a Republic), being an established Socialist/Communist order under a new governor for America.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ek_3X2ONCx0&feature=related 

THE SELL-OUT OF AMERICA
May 2, 2001- Congressional Record, Congressman Traficant
“Mr. Speaker, the Great Lakes are now open. The first foreign ship to dock in Cleveland, Ohio, carried 10,000 tons of steel from Russia. While mills are closing in Cleveland, Youngstown, and Pittsburgh, steel mills are closing all over America. Ten thousand tons of illegally dumped steel just came in to America. Unbelievable.  Think about it. It is getting so bad the Army almost bought, without Congress’ interference, black berets for the Army from China. Beam me up. If our trade program is so good, why does Europe not do it? Why does Japan not do it? Why does China not do it?  I think it is time to put things in order in America, my colleagues. Enough is enough. I yield back the sell-out of America, wholesale, to Communist dictators, and the loss of jobs to these socialist, communist countries.

BUYING OUR WAY INTO BANKRUPTCY
February 7, 2001- Congressional Record, Congressman Traficant
Mr. Speaker, the trade deficit is at $10 billion a week, $40 billion a month, a half trillion dollars a year. Unbelievable. Japan continues to take $60 billion out of our economy a year, and China is now taking over $100 billion a year out of America, and both Japan and China continue to keep American products out.  Now, if that is not enough to neuter your dragon, China has missiles pointed at us.  Beam me up. A Nation that buys more than they sell will go bankrupt, and a Nation that allows illegal trade destroys all American industry. I yield back the bankruptcy of America’s steel industry. Day after day the filings continue to mount up.

BRING SOME COMMON SENSE TO FOREIGN RELATIONS
November 5, 1997- Congressional Record, Congressman Jim Traficant
Mr. Speaker, see if this makes sense. America gives billions of foreign aid to Russia; Russia then takes American cash and builds new weapons; Russia then offers to sell the old weapons to Iran. America trying to keep nuclear technology from Iran, and they buy the old weapons from Russia. Russia then asks America for more foreign aid. America trying to keep the Marx brothers out of Russia, and I do not mean Groucho, give Russia more foreign aid. After all this, the State Department labels the National Council Resistance, the opposition party in Iran, fighting for democracy, trying to throw those bums out. They label them a terrorist group.  Unbelievable. How dumb can Uncle Sam be? Let us tell it like it is. Those Russian nuclear scientists are not hanging around Iran to watch belly dancers. What is next? Will the Pentagon lease Tehran?
Beam me up, Mr. Speaker. With a foreign policy like this, I do not know how we still have our sovereignty.

While Ron Paul and others might be a fan of his, the federal authorities are not.  Traficant says, “I was a target of the administration…I have been targeted.”  One must wonder if he is still a target.

Auditing The Federal Reserve is long overdue.  http://www.federalreserve.gov/oig/oig_bio.htm Elizabeth Coleman as the inspector general of the Federal Reserve of the United States and is supposed to be responsible for preventing and detecting waste, fraud, and abuse, but in a videotaped Congressional testimony, she acknowledged that she can’t account for many trillions of dollars of our taxpayers money. TRILLIONS.   Specifically she says she knows nothing about nine trillion dollars ($9,000,000,000,000) that is claimed to be unaccounted for. 

Congressman Alan Grayson of Florida on May 6th asks about the huge piles of money that the Federal Reserve is responsible for,  saying “I have to tell you honestly, I am shocked to find out that nobody at the Federal Reserve, including the Inspector General, is keeping track of [the unaccounted for trillions].” sourced at http://www.examiner.com/x-6495-US-Intelligence-Examiner~y2009m5d22-Federal-Reserve-Inspector-General-hedges-on-trillions-missing-in-Congressional-hearing

In an effort to find trillions of dollars we turn to The Federal Reserve Transparency Act, “To amend title 31, United States Code, to reform the manner in which the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System is audited by the Comptroller General of the United States and the manner in which such audits are reported, and for other purposes. http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h111-1207 .  By my account it must have taken several years to misplace so much money, so any deceit has been going on for years. 

While the the Reserve is owned by its member banks and not by the government, it issues currency and charges interest.  These banks certainly would never want an audit, but the American people do and so does Congressman Ron Paul with over 200 of your elected officials as co-sponsors of the bill.   www.ronpaul.com continues to crash my system so enter at your own risk. 

Is there any money or gold at Fort Knox either? My bet is that there is nothing but gold dust laying in the vaults.  As Proof from The U.S. Mint on June 22, 2009- http://catalog.usmint.gov/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CategoryDisplay?catalogId=10001&storeId=10001&categoryId=13238&langId=-1&parent_category_rn=10191&top_category=10191:

Production of United States Mint American Eagle Gold Proof and Uncirculated Coins has been temporarily suspended because of unprecedented demand for American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins . Currently, all available 22-karat gold blanks are being allocated to the American Eagle Gold Bullion Coin Program, as the United States Mint is required by Public Law 99-185 to produce these coins “in quantities sufficient to meet public demand . . . .”

The United States Mint will resume the American Eagle Gold Proof and Uncirculated Coin Programs once sufficient inventories of gold bullion blanks can be acquired to meet market demand for all three American Eagle Gold Coin products. Additionally, as a result of the recent numismatic product portfolio analysis, fractional sizes of American Eagle Gold Uncirculated Coins will no longer be produced.

America is out of gold and money and we are headed up a shit creek.  So what about silver and other metals to make bullets and guns?  Can’t seem to buy that easily either, “It’s no secret, of course, that small-denomination bullion is hard to come by and gun sales are way up, but finding out first-hand that this stuff is unavailable brings home the reality of the situation, which is that the social mood is growing darker. On the surface everything looks normal; no one is protesting in the streets, the trash is getting picked up, and elections are as orderly as ever. But the market is quietly reallocating resources as individuals insure against a systemic breakdown” http://news.goldseek.com/DollarCollapse/1245697526.php

Speaker-Rep. James Traficant, Jr. (Ohio)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Traficant warned numerous times of looming catastrophe before being sentenced to prison for being convicted of taking bribes, filing false tax returns, racketeering, and requiring office workers to perform chores at his farm in Ohio and on his houseboat in Washington, D.C..  He is currently serving an eight-year prison term with a projected release date of September 2, 2009http://www.bop.gov/iloc2/InmateFinderServlet?Transaction=NameSearch&needingMoreList=false&LastName=traficant&Middle=&FirstName=james&Race=U&Sex=U&Age=&x=0&y=0  Traficant turned down an offer of early release to a halfway house in Youngstown, Ohio because the prison official there testified against him.  Either way government officials must be so happy to have him tucked away having said: 

“It is an established fact that the United States Federal Government has been dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act, March 9, 1933, 48 Stat. 1, Public Law 89-719; declared by President Roosevelt, being bankrupt and insolvent. H.J.R. 192, 73rd Congress m session June 5, 1933 – Joint Resolution To Suspend The Gold Standard and Abrogate The Gold Clause dissolved the Sovereign Authority of the United States and the official capacities of all United States Governmental Offices, Officers, and Departments and is further evidence that the United States Federal Government exists today in name only.” http://www.apfn.net/DOC-100_bankruptcy.htm

We need to bring accountability to the Federal Reserve now before Obama and anyone else in government spends one more dime.  Have these people been tripping over quarters to pick up pennies for so long to be so ignorant and incompetent or it it just the little old taxpayer who continues to deny we are in a financial meltdown? 

Amazingly, gold was recovered from the rubble of The World Trade Center but  http://factsnotfairies.blogspot.com/2009/06/they-hate-us-for-our-gold.html notes the convenience of it all and explores the theory that something was amiss.

“We are on the verge of a global transformation.  All we [ the CFR ] need is the right major crisis and the nation[s] will accept the New World Order.”  End Quote.  David Rockefeller: Founder and Honorary Chairman, Council of the Americas; Chairman, Americas Society; Founder, Forum of the Americas; Chairman, Emeritus, Council on Foreign Relations [CFR]; Founder and Honorary Chairman, Trilateral Commission [TC]; Chairman, The Bilderbergs.

Loose lipped Joe Biden warned of looming crisis. Between the Public Health Emergency over the Pandemic A/H1N1 Swine Flu, North Korea taking aim at Hawaii, discourse throughout the world, the events of 9-11 and the Federal Reserve misplacing NINE TRILLION dollars, the crisis are indeed adding up.  America sits in the eye of the perfect storm for the change you don’t want to believe in.
