Politicians are well-known for wasting our money so they can live very comfortably. While many of us are outraged over such lavish waste, libs tend to forgive the behavior (unless a Republican does it). However, using the taxpayer’s dime to reap such rewards is one thing … taking money from our troops so you can pound shots with your buddies is another thing altogether.
When members of Congress travel overseas at the expense of the Department of Defense, they are treated to thousands of dollars worth of alcohol and other amenities. A review by The Wall Street Journal of congressional disclosure documents for 43 trips found that expenditures averaged $4,300 per trip—and that’s just what has been reported. Lawmakers are required to declare what they spend on travel but not what others like the Pentagon do on Congress’ behalf.
In March 2008, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and nine other lawmakers traveled to England, India and Spain. Their flight included $438.75 worth of alcohol, including three cases of beer, 15 bottles of wine, three bottles of vodka, Crown Royal, Dewar’s and other liquor, plus another $750 worth of chips, cakes and other snacks—all of which were paid for by the U.S. Air Force.
A junket taken by Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) to Africa in December 2008 included $3,360 in “emergency requests” paid for by the military. Some of Inhofe’s party went to a Wal-Mart and bought $130 worth of cookies, mints and other munchies for the trip. They also spent $250 at Total Wine & More.
Joel Johnson, a defense-industry analyst with the Teal Group Corporation and former staffer for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said the military-funded trips help provide a “bonding” experience between lawmakers and Pentagon officials which “is helpful for the military when they are seeking particular things in appropriations or authorizations.”
When will my congressional representatives go on a “bonding” trip with me, or any of their other constituents?

His lack of understanding of military continues to be staggering. Almost as bad as Kucinich even. I need not comment more.

I have been saying for a very long time that the bird flu, and more recently, swine flu pandemics were falsified in order to get new laws, money, and power in place. As a result, thousands of innocent victims were given experimental vaccines that ended up having harmful side effects.
There have only been a few, who aren’t registered members of conspiracy kooks quarterly, that have shared my thoughts on this matter.
Much like all the evidence proves man-made global warming is a fraud, all the evidence clearly points to an orchestrated effort to instill panic on the swine flu. The CDC even inadvertently admitted that they were fudging numbers, and fear-mongering on swine flu.
Now, finally, an major international organization is going to investigate this fraud upon the world’s citizens. The Council of Europe will investigate the “faked pandemic” to get to the bottom of this farce. To learn more about the Council of Europe … go here. They are basically a local European United Nations, and they are legit.
In order to promote their patented drugs and vaccines against flu, pharmaceutical companies influenced scientists and official agencies, responsible for public health standards to alarm governments worldwide and make them squander tight health resources for inefficient vaccine strategies and needlessly expose millions of healthy people to the risk of an unknown amount of side-effects of insufficiently tested vaccines.
The “birds-flu”-campaign (2005/06) combined with the “swine-flu”-campaign seem to have caused a great deal of damage not only to some vaccinated patients and to public health-budgets, but to the credibility and accountability of important international health-agencies.
The Council of Europe and its member-states should ask for immediate investigations and consequences on their national levels as well as on the international level.
The definition of an alarming pandemic must not be under the influence of drug-sellers.
Was the drug industry partly responsible for this farce? Yes, but there is a great point being missed here. So were the governments who took part. They weren’t scammed or tricked. They help orchestrate this whole pandemic in order to pass new laws that bi-passed current law in order to maintain ‘public safety.’
Here’s a couple examples if you don’t believe me:
I’d like to take this moment to reflect on the health care debate. If the drug companies are the enemy, and we need the federal government to keep them in check, then why is a prominent international council of nations investigating the influence of those same drug companies upon those same governments? It seems the government is more, not less, susceptible to the influence of big pharma than the private sector.
When in April 2009 some hundred normal influenza cases in Mexico City were rashly announced to be the beginning of a threatening new pandemic, there was little scientific evidence for this judgement. Nevertheless a large and immediate word-wide agenda setting process started and was eagerly spread by alarmist media and formally legitimized by pandemic-defining WHO, the agency, which is our global epidemiological watchdog and task-force.
Nevertheless we have to observe, that a faked “swine-flu”- pandemic is still used for marketing risky vaccines.
The victims among millions of needlessly vaccinated people must be protected by their states and independent scientific clarification should provide evidence and transparency for national and -if necessary- European courts.
After we discovered that seasonal flu was far more deadly than swine flu in the US, this screams of a blatant fraud upon the people. Go get ‘em on this.

The US Senate has advanced the health care bill as expected. All it took was corruption and bribery to get the votes. And to think, a few of you out there actually thought your rights weren’t for sale.
The Democratic Party’s decades-long push to remake the U.S. health care system cleared a major hurdle early Monday morning, with the Senate voting to advance a massive $871 billion bill to extend coverage to nearly all Americans and tighten regulations on private insurers.
Less than two days after releasing a bill with 383 pages of changes, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) corralled his politically diverse caucus and delivered the 60 votes necessary for the most crucial test vote in the legislative process so far — effectively assuring the reform package will clear the Senate later this week.
The final tally was a straight party-line vote, 60-40. All Democrats and two independents voted yes and all Republicans voted no – and each side bitterly accused the other of trying to thwart true reform through petty gamesmanship.
DC is still looking for one Democrat who’s actually read the bill.

What’s up Obama’s sleeve here? Why would he stop the briefing?
The Senate Armed Services Committee postponed its Monday briefing on the deadly Fort Hood massacre at the behest of the White House, despite calls from some lawmakers to press forward with a congressional investigation into the shooting rampage that killed 13 and wounded 29.
There’s no need to delay it for evidence gathering purposes. I’ll be following this for you.

Inadvertently of course, but they still did it.
4,000 or more Americans likely have died from swine flu — about four times the estimate they’ve been using.
The new, higher figure was first reported by The New York Times. It includes deaths caused by complications related to swine flu, including pneumonia and bacterial infections.
Holy sh*t! 4x more than they thought!? We’re all going to die!
Wait. Let’s calm down and relax. Allow some logic to seep in.
The CDC is stating that 4,000 Americans are dead because of swine flu. That’s an attention grabbing headline. Follow that up with the CDC saying that is 4x more than they were estimating, and you have a panic formula in full effect. Most people reading that will be scared into running out, and finding the closest H1N1 vaccine so they don’t die.
But what does 4,000 deaths mean? Is it really a lot of people given the circumstances? In a nutshell … HELL NO!
While the CDC attempts to institute widespread panic about a mere 4,000 deaths, in April CNN reported that the seasonal flu had already killed … get this … 13,000.
Since January, more than 13,000 people have died of complications from seasonal flu, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s weekly report on the causes of death in the nation.
No fewer than 800 flu-related deaths were reported in any week between January 1 and April 18, the most recent week for which figures were available.
Yep, from January 2009 to April 2009 the regular run-of-the-mill flu killed more than 3x the number of people as swine flu has all year. I haven’t even added the number who’ve died since April (I don’t know).
According to the same CDC trying to scare you in regards to H1N1, that 13,000 was not even on pace to equal the average number of people to die every year from the regular flu. That number is less than normal. So how many people die on average from the regular flu in the US? That would be 36,000 people. Swine flu is not even close to approaching that number.
Thanks CDC for the fear mongering that we’ve come to depend on from you, and for collectively stepping in your own filth to expose this fraud.

Further proof that the Republicans who were ok with nominating someone with this guy’s views, and then were ok with that candidate dropping out to endorse this guy, need to be removed.
Bill Owens won the recent election in NY by lying to his constituents, and saying he would not support Pelosicare. It took just one hour to break four of his promises.
The Democrats have sunk to a new low. It took months for the country to finally realize that Democrats weren’t going to fulfill any of their platform promises when they took over Congress beyond minimum wage. However, Owens has raised the bar by admitting he lied just an hour after being sworn in.
Ace of Spades HQ
Owens indicated in a press release that he was now in favor of the bill in direct contrast to his earlier position during his campaign.
During his campaign for Congress, Mr. Owens assured voters that he felt the public option had no place in the health care reform bill. Contrary to that position, Mr. Owens now indicates that he intends to vote in favor of the bill even though it now contains a public option.

I know we are used to our politicians saying one thing then doing another, but where is the outrage from you libs on this?
Buried in the thousands of pages of the health care bills drafted by Democrats in the House and Senate is a provision to protect insurance companies from legal accountability for benefit decisions that cause injury or death to patients, Republicans warned on Wednesday.
“You can sue your doctor for malpractice if he makes a mistake practicing medicine, but you cannot sue your insurance company when it makes a medical decision,” Rep. John Shadegg (R-Ariz.) said at the press conference near the steps of the Capitol. “That’s just wrong.”

Need I really say more?
Regulators have approached big banks about borrowing billions to shore up the dwindling fund that insures regular deposit accounts.
The loans would go to the fund maintained by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. that insure depositors when banks fail, said two industry officials familiar with the conversations, who requested anonymity because the plans are still evolving.

If you don’t remember … the HPV vaccine was thoroughly rushed into production at lightning speed. Many parents and doctors had great concerns about the vaccine because there was no long term studies done on it. So world governments launched a counter-attack via taxpayer funded advertising to tell you that the vaccine was perfectly safe in spite of the lack of research (they left that part out).
It wasn’t long after the vaccine was released that we started seeing major health problems with it here in the United States. Remember, we live in a country where people are usually complaining about NOT getting vaccines for several years while our government drags their knuckles in researching it.
And some of you want even more government control?
Every now and then though … the FDA rushes something through without so much as a sample group being studied. Meanwhile, very promising drugs for Alzheimer’s, cancer, HIV, and Parkinson’s are studied for decades without being released. In spite of showing a positive benefit.
There was, however, a ton of money to be made with the HPV vaccine. You women are so gullible some times. Now we are learning that thousands of school girls, who’s parents were misled, are suffering from ill-effects of the cervical cancer vaccine.
What migh we expect from the same exact scenario playing out now with the Swine Flu vaccine? It too is being rushed into production without much research amid a false atmosphere of fear, and it too is killing people already.
