It's too late to impeach Bush and Cheney, the best we can hope for is a formal censure for his complete and total mismanagement of the nation's fiscal affairs.

He blew a hole in the budget to the tune of $1 trillion plus (off balance sheet of course) by invading a sovereign nation under false pretenses.

Then his administration destroyed and disregarded the regulatory framework and supervision of the financial affairs of the nation, leading to the current economic disaster and additional $1 trillion plus in taxpayer burden.

In addition, he turned the nation's surplus into $4 trillion in accumulated overspending during his administration, nearly doubling the nation's debt.

Finally, he did nothing to confront the entitlement timebomb, which will now cause even more havoc than it needed to once he leaves office.


(and after they're done censuring Bush, they should censure themselves)

Here are some of the provisions of the draft version of the bailout bill, from the NYT. For full draft and commentary do the above link.

Sec. 2. Purchases of Mortgage-Related Assets.

* Authority to Purchase.--The Secretary is authorized to purchase, and to make and fund commitments to purchase, on such terms and conditions as determined by the Secretary, mortgage-related assets from any financial institution having its headquarters in the United States….

Sec. 8. Review.

* Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency.

* entering into contracts, including contracts for services authorized by section 3109 of title 5, United States Code, without regard to any other provision of law regarding public contracts;

Sec. 6. Maximum Amount of Authorized Purchases.

The Secretary’s authority to purchase mortgage-related assets under this Act shall be limited to $700,000,000,000 outstanding at any one time

There you have it. Your money will be spent per the decisions of Paulson, former CEO of Goldman Sachs and NOBODY ELSE. His decisions will final and not subject to any kind of review, judicial recourse, or “any other provision of law regarding public contracts”. The $700,000,000,000 is just for starters

There’s your democracy folks. And the GOPocrates will come together and pass this. Buy hey! They’ll still bicker about gay marriage! All is well.

It's not too late to impeach, it's only too lat for the Senate to convict.

Impeachment strips Bush and Cheney of all immunity from prosecution related to their crimes in office.

I propose the 110th Congress impeach them after the election and before the 111th Congress swears in.

By the way, that 700 billion for the Secretary sounds an awful lot like communism, with similar results to come.

Bailing out the banks is the definition of a bad long term economic move. There are too many resources and incentives for non-productive work. Think of how many smart people and huge buildings are devoted to non-productive work! The Second Great Depression is necessary to get our economy back on track.

In short, the worst is yet to come.

All I want is for Bush to inact a special tax in the amount of $3,300 for every citizen in this country payable over the next 5 years so that we all understand the gravity of this situation.

If he's man enough to spend another trillion with a stroke of the pen, he should be man enough to be the guy to impose the tax that pays for it.

What a piece of shit.

There never was never a surplus. go to the treasury debt web page, shows the national debt, to the penny for every day since 1993. There was never, never a time when the debt decreased.

The "surplus" was just an accounting trick (borrowing from social security, which is filled with IOUs) but then you know that, don't you Keith. It is not dramatic to say "bush took a budget deficit handed to him by the previous administration and made it larger!".

Let me ask you a simple question: what country in its right mind would create a system that would force it to lend itself money and have to repay the money WITH INTEREST? What country would charge itself interest? What nation would put itself out of business by making it bankrupt because of interest? The answer is none! America is not charging itself interest on its debt, the privately owned central bankers are doing this and they are hiding in plain sight! Congress (with the exception of Ron Paul), every US president and every single member of the corporate media are either part of the conspiracy or just plain stupid!

Two presidents tried to stop this outrage, and they were both assassinated. Lincoln was set to bypass the central banks in order to finance the Civil War. The banks were going to charge him 24-36% interest on the loans. So Lincoln had Congress pass a law authorizing the printing of full legal tender. These treasury notes would be used to finance the war. Lincoln wrote: "... (we) gave the people of this Republic the greatest blessing they have ever had - their own paper money to pay their own debts..." Now go and research the person who supposedly killed Lincoln and how he relates to bankers.

After Lincoln was assassinated Congress revoked the Greenback Law and enacted the National Banking Act. The national banks were to be privately owned and the national bank notes they issued were to be interest-bearing. The Act also provided that the Greenbacks should be retired from circulation as soon as they came back to the Treasury in payment of taxes.

John F. Kennedy was the next brave man to take on the Federal Reserve. On June 4, 1963, President Kennedy signed a Presidential Executive Order 11110. This order virtually stripped the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Government at interest. Kennedy declared the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business. This order gave the Treasury Department the authority to issue silver certificates against any silver in the treasury. This executive order still stands today. No president since has had the courage to invoke it for it would mean their demise. The US government is a front for the real controllers; the central bankers.

Debt keeps the central banks in control of the world. Nations that eliminate their debt end up on the hit list. When you see nations "liberated" by the US or its allies what normally follows is a central bank extending loans to these liberated nations. The World Bank always comes to the rescue. What a joke this is like having a loan shark come to the rescue of someone who needs food money for his kids!

War is the single biggest money making business for the central bankers. Nations go into tremendous debt to finance war. Interestingly enough, but in no way surprising to those of us who know better, the architects of both Vietnam and the Iraq invasion both went on to become the head of the World Bank; Robert McNamara and Paul Wolfowitz. It is the central banks that push the world towards military conflict.

Look at your money; it say "Federal Reserve Note!" It is not an American government currency backed by an asset. It is fiat currency backed by nothing. The Federal Reserve lends these notes to the government, with interest! What a scam! How do we permit this? Oh, I know, we permit this because most people don't know about it...thanks to the criminals in the media. For if the people knew, perhaps Henry Ford's words would ring true and we would indeed take to the streets to stop this crime!

Now that we know the Federal Reserve is a privately owned, for-profit corporation, a natural question would be: who OWNS this company? Peter Kershaw provides the answer in "Economic Solutions" where he lists the ten primary shareholders in the Federal Reserve banking system.

1) The Rothschild Family - London 2) The Rothschild Family - Berlin 3) The Lazard Brothers - Paris 4) Israel Seiff - Italy 5) Kuhn-Loeb Company - Germany 6) The Warburgs - Amsterdam 7) The Warburgs - Hamburg 8) Lehman Brothers - New York 9) Goldman & Sachs - New York 10) The Rockefeller Family - New York

Now I don't know about you, but something is terribly wrong with this situation. Namely, don't we live in AMERICA? If so, why are seven of the top ten stockholders located in FOREIGN countries? That's 70%! To further convey how screwed-up this system is, Jim Marrs provides the following data in his phenomenal book, "Rule By Secrecy." He says that the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, which undeniably controls the other eleven Federal Reserve branches, is essentially controlled by two financial institutions:

1) Chase-Manhattan (controlled by the Rockefellers) - 6,389,445 shares - 32.3%
2) Citbank - 4,051,851 shares - 20.5%

Thus, these two entities control nearly 53% of the New York Federal Reserve Bank. Doesn't that boggle your mind? Now, considering how many trillions of dollars are involved here, and how the bankers are WAY above our "selected" officials in Washington, D.C., do you think the above-listed banks and families have an inordinate amount of say-so in how our country is being run? The answer is blindingly apparent.

Where does the money come from?

We all know that the Federal Reserve CORPORATION prints money - then loans it, at interest, to our government. But wait until you see what a total scam this process is. But before we get to the meat of this issue, let's remember one thing about the very essence of banking - primarily that money should have some type of standard upon which its value is based. In the case of America, we operate on what is called a "gold standard" (i.e. our money is backed by gold).

So, with that in mind, let's look at how money is actually created, and at what cost. If the Federal Reserve wants to print 1,000 one-hundred ($100) bills, their total cost for ink, paper, plates, labor, etc. would be approximately $23.00 (according to Davvy Kidd in "Why A Bankrupt America"). Now, if you do the math, the total cost of 10,000 bills would be $230.00 ($.023 x 10,000). But, and here's the catch - 10,000 $100 bills equals $1,000,000! So, the Federal Reserve can "create" a million dollars, then LEND it to the U.S. Government (with interest) for a total cost of $230.00! That's not a bad deal, huh!

The banking industry calls this process "seignorage." I call it outright THEFT. Why? Well, regardless of the immense profit margin ($1,000,000 for $230), plus the huge interest payments, our government then needs to STEAL the American people's money to payoff their debts via a Mob-like agency called the IRS. So the bankers steal from the government, then the government turns around and steals from the people. I'm no genius, but who do you think is getting screwed in this process? US - the people at the bottom rung of the ladder.

What's worse is that - now catch your breath - there's NO MORE gold left in Fort Knox! It's all gone. In other words, the GOLD STANDARD that our financial system was based upon is now an illusion. We can't convert our money into gold --- only other currency. The entire underlying basis for our money is now a lie - a sham. The Federal Reserve has become so arrogant that they've become a literal MONEY MAKING MACHINE, creating currency out of thin air! So that's where the Fed gets their money - they literally make it, then lend it to us so they can make even MORE money off of it.

Point blank, a private corporation should not have control over a nations finances.

This is an issue that needs to be resolved, and NEVER brought to fruition again...

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation
and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them, will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the ontinent
their fathers conquered."

Earth to Keith, Earth to in the states, the House of Representatives decides how much money the government spends. Last I heard some bitch named Peolsi (Demorat) runs the House, and an old fart named Reid (Demorat) runs the Senate. Between the two of them they could have said NO to any of Bush's spending proposals, stopped the war in Iraq cold, and held hearings on the sorry state of Wall Street finances.

Did they do any of those things? So why the fu*k are you people so eager for the Dems to control the White House too? Are you really THAT stupid?

I remember Lou Dobbs reporting this and wondered why the hell isn't anyone listening?
War Profiteering
banks collapse on purpose this was no mistake
WASHINGTON – Are secret meetings being held between the corporate and political elites of the U.S., Mexico and Canada to push North America into a European Union-style merger?
Is President Bush's reluctance to control the border and enforce laws requiring deportation of foreigners who enter the country illegally part of a master plan to all but eliminate borders between the U.S., Canada and Mexico?

Does the agenda of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America include a common currency that would scrap the dollar in favor of what some are calling the "amero"?

It may be the biggest story of the 21st century, but few press outlets are telling it. In fact, until very recently, few in the U.S. were aware of the plans and even fewer denouncing what appears to be the implementation of an effort some have characterized as "NAFTA on steroids."

But opposition is mounting.

CNN's Lou Dobbs

Perhaps the most blistering criticism has come from Lou Dobbs of CNN – a frequent critic of Bush's immigration policies.

"A regional prosperity and security program?" he asked rhetorically in a recent cablecast. "This is absolute ignorance. And the fact that we are -- we reported this, we should point out, when it was signed. But, as we watch this thing progress, these working groups are continuing. They're intensifying. What in the world are these people thinking about? You know, I was asked the other day about whether or not I really thought the American people had the stomach to stand up and stop this nonsense, this direction from a group of elites, an absolute contravention of our law, of our Constitution, every national value. And I hope, I pray that I'm right when I said yes. But this is -- I mean, this is beyond belief."

What has Dobbs and a few other vocal critics bugged began in earnest March 31, 2005, when the elected leaders of the U.S., Mexico and Canada agreed to advance the agenda of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America.

No one seems quite certain what that agenda is because of the vagueness of the official declarations. But among the things the leaders of the three countries agreed to work toward were borders that would allow for easier and faster moving of goods and people between the countries.

Coming as the announcement did in the midst of a raging national debate in the U.S. over borders seen as far to open already, more than a few jaws dropped.

Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo.

Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo. and the chairman of the House Immigration Reform Caucus as well as author of the new book, "In Mortal Danger," may be the only elected official to challenge openly the plans for the new superstate.

Responding to a WorldNetDaily report, Tancredo is demanding the Bush administration fully disclose the activities of the government office implementing the trilateral agreement that has no authorization from Congress.

Tancredo wants to know the membership of the Security and Prosperity Partnership groups along with their various trilateral memoranda of understanding and other agreements reached with counterparts in Mexico and Canada.

Jim Gilchrist, co-founder of the Minutemen, welcomed Tancredo's efforts.

"It's time for the Bush administration to come clean," Gilchrist said. "If President Bush's agenda is to establish a new North American union government to supersede the sovereignty of the United States, then the president has an obligation to tell this to the American people directly. The American public has a right to know."

Geri Word, who heads the SPP office, told WND the work had not been disclosed because, "We did not want to get the contact people of the working groups distracted by calls from the public."

WND can find no specific congressional legislation authorizing the SPP working groups nor any congressional committees taking charge of oversight.

Many SPP working groups appear to be working toward achieving specific objectives as defined by a May 2005 Council on Foreign Relations task force report, which presented a blueprint for expanding the SPP agreement into a North American union that would merge the U.S., Canada and Mexico into a new governmental form.

I can't help it if this Paulson keeps on trying to save a dying institution like Wall Street credit markets that killed themselves by greed.

Why censure Bush? He inherited a system that was destined for this type of end anyway. Its not his fault.

Additionally, you have only needed to hear him speak over the last 3 years to know that he has little grasp as to whats is going on in the country. His handlers trot him out ever more infrequently to say less and less. We don't generally hold the mentally deficient responsible for their actions and this should apply to him as well.

History is his punishment.

That quote by Thomas Jefferson really got to me and I want to thank the poster that put that in .

When I think about how our founding Fathers were rich guys ,yet they signed the Declaration knowing that they might be killed or lose all their wealth for their attempt for American independence, I have deep respect .

Compare the original politicians
that founded the principals of this Country ,with the bought off politicians of today .

Look at how George Washington refused to be President for life because he said that would be to much like being a king . How many
people would turn down power in order to maintain a principal .

Look at how you have the politicians of today selling out to the rich guys of Wall Street ,and compare them to the Writers of the Constitution .The politicians of today don't even read the laws they pass ,and they let a Wall Street guy Like Paulson have free rein to fleece the public to aid the rich .

One of the reasons our original
drafters of the Declaration of Independence wanted to break from England was because the people were being taxed to death . Isn't it ironic that our representatives of today in conjunction with the Public servant Hank Paulson want to tax the public to death to save the rich oppressive Wall Street fat cats .

Do you see where I'm going with this ?

The men that set us free to became a great Nation are being betrayed
by bought off Politicians and dimwits who want to serve greedy criminals and market makers .

The original fathers set us free from oppressive taxation and these modern-day politicians want to straddle the people with oppressive taxation to bail-out the rich fat cats of the corrupt financial sector .

The original father brought us the concept of the individual right to the pursuit of happiness ,while the current men/women in power bring us oppression ,taxation, and inflation ,so they can serve their true masters the Wall Street Complex.

The writers of the Constitution knew what corruption and unfair taxes were ,so they sought freedom from this ,while our modern day politicians protect the criminals and the corrupt and don't give a damn about the rule of law, or how much the people are burdened.

Just compare the people that started this great Country with the current governing body that will set us on the path that will end this Great Country .
