    US FUNDS THE TALIBAN????

    One of the most important issues today is the war in Afghanistan-Pakistan and the fact that US
    Military Aid to Pakistan is being used to fund the Pakistani ISI which is in turn funding Taliban
    and Al Quada fighters. While this has been reported sporadically in the media for whatever
    reason political pundits on the left and right have effectively ignored this issue.

    Joe Klein in an article for Time, August 9, 2010, p. 19, has written an article that every American
    citizen should go to their library and read, he writes,

    “The commanders are unanimous in their belief that the ISI is running the show….And so,
    despite professions of alliance with the US by Pakistan’s then dictator Pervez Musharraf, a
    decision was made to keep the Taliban alive. A spigot of untargeted military aid from the George
    W. Bush Administration helped fund the effort. A commander of the vicious Haqqani Taliban
    network tells Waldman that their funding comes from ‘the Americans–from them to the
    Pakistani military, and then to us.’ Waldman reports that the commander receives from the
    Pakistanis ‘a reward for killing foreign soldiers, usually $4000 to $5000 for each soldier killed’”.

    American tax dollars if not directly, then indirectly are being used to fund the Taliban and put
    a bounty on American boys and girls head… Makes one wonder why the establishment right
    or left is not reporting on this? If the right is covering for
    the mistakes of the Bush administration…why is the establishment left not reporting on this???
    …this is the most important issue of the day…we will never win a war where if not directly then
    indirectly the US is funding the opposition!!!!

    MIDEAST CHESSBOARD

    by Woody Voinche

    This book is an overview of the major events that have
    contributed to the history of three major countries in the
    mideast: Iran, Iraq, and Afghanistan. From the coup d’etat
    that brought about the downfall of Mossadeq and the rise
    to power of the Shah of Iran; to the arming of the Shah and
    his final downfall(with Iranian Air Force General Rabii telling his
    Judges “General Huyser threw the Shah out of the country
    like a dead mouse.”); the hostage crisis in Iran and the use
    of this event by both Republican and Democratic groups in
    what became known as the October Surprise; the rise and
    arming of Saddam Hussein and the part played by western
    interests; the US support of the mujahadeen in Afghanistan
    and the role played by Bin Laden and other Islamists culminating
    in the breakup of the Soviet Union; the Islamist group on
    the periphery of the Alkifah Refugee center in New York and
    the 1993 World Trade Center bombing; the events leading up
    to 911 and the evidence suggesting the Intelligence agencies
    had advanced knowledge of this event; And the evidence that
    US forces have had the opportunity to eliinate top al Qaeda
    and Taliban forces in Afghanistan and Iraq but for whatever
    reason have failed to do this…

    The motion to recommit with instructions is a tactic used to get politicians on record for a particular vote. There’s basically two parts to the vote…one, to send the bill back to the committee and two, to debate on the amendment. So what Daily Kos says is not 100% true and not 100% false. It’s like when Ron Paul voted against the entire financial reform bill. It’s hard to say that since he voted against financial reform that he voted against auditing the fed.

    Ron Paul already voted No on the entire resolution to cut $4 billion and extend the government for another two weeks. Here’s the roll call vote:

    Exxon Mobil had a reported 2011 first quarter NET CLEAR TAX FREE PROFIT of $10.7 BILLION! All the while they received subsidy welfare checks and raised at-the-pump prices to a whopping $4.50 a Gallon.

    Ron Paul voted AGAINST ending their government subsidies.

    There is a SUCKER born every minute!

    There’s difference between a typo and ignorance. Thank you for demonstrating the difference. Stossell is not an entertainer, neither is Celente or Schiff. You should research before you open your pie hole…it only makes you look like a clown. Or troll.

    Notice how you selected the one name you recognized? What about the other 2? They are not TV entertainers. There is a FB page called “Democrats for Ron Paul”. If you want names, go there and check it out for yoruself. There are people all over the world who support Ron Paul too….they blog, twitter, etc…on a daily basis about how they wish they were Americans just long enough to vote for him. You got anything else? I will accept your apology now, thanks.

And why would you say only a nincompoop would switch sides? Don’t you get it? He speaks for liberty! Libery is bipartsan!!!! And what do you mean by “act”??? You clearly have no idea what Dr. Paul is about. Come back after you’ve researched a little more.

    Why do so many say “I don’t agree with everything Ron Paul says” and leave it at that? Is it fear that drives you? “Maybe Ron Paul is too, extreme, just three years ago he was a freak” Its OK to agree with him on all things. He is always right. Take a chance, you will be fine and maybe sleep better at night.

    This is Old School Republican…no bullshit. Too bad the Republicans look nothing like this guy these days….all bought and sold by the highest bidder. Ron Paul is NOT bought and sold. I don;t agree with everything he says, but I DO think he is of the highest order…Makes me proud that he is from my district, in a sea of bullshitters, hypocrites and morons…this guy somehow floats to the top. Gives me hope that somehow the People will prevail.

    Obama and Bush are both twisted liars. Both recieve most of their political campaign money from AIPAC the powerful Zionist lobby which every American needs to google and learn about is actually for the last few decades controlled USA foreign policy NOT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. Iraq and Iran are Israels enemies when it comes to Oil not USA enemies

    if you have the skills they have go get one of their jobs. It’s a lie that government salaries are “bloated”. they are the same or lower than equivalent jobs with people with the same education or experience than in the private sector.

    Instead of attacking government workers, you should be asking why you’re not getting their deal if you think it’s so much better.

    Working class wage earners need to stop the finger pointing and recognize what’s being done to us by the investor class.

    Saddam “outlined his ongoing border dispute with Kuwait”. “ongoing” for many years. never did anything about it, no reason to think he was about to then. We were diplomatically neutral.

    “We took no position on these Arab affairs” was NOT saying “Oh by the way, if you want to settle your dispute over where the border should be, by invading and taking the whole country and Oil fields, it’s fine by us. ” Yea right, that’s what we meant.

    Paul’s agenda is ALWAYS anti-government. Truth be damned.

    Fannie and Freddie were profitable, PUBLICLY traded in the PRIVATE SECTOR, BUSINESSES.
    *
    To blame OUR Democratic Government, for people acting out of GREED instead of using their OWN better judgment, is RETARDED. Business is RISKY.
    *
    ACORN is about RACIAL discrimination. If Banks and Lenders could prove that decisions were based SOLEY on financial credibility, they were NEVER “forced” to give out Loans. Glenn Beck is a Charlatan.
