Why Oklahoma,911,lack of response to Katrina, and coming war with Iran?
17 Sep 2005
Our foreign policies of giving foreign aid to several foreign countries is screwing our own National security! Executives and Congress used to be responsive to the people, but nowadays they're responsive to powerful lobbies, and vote for their goals, not the taxpayers.
Congress depends on political contrbution$ to get elected. Since Americans are paying such high taxes they can't contribute. So Lobbies have funded and Congress has responded to passing favorable laws for lobbies, even foreign countries goals at the expense of destroying America's security.See: http://www.wrmea.com/archives/July_Aug_2004/0407027.html

Even Congress rejected today an inquiry into the Katrina fiasco, just like they welcomed the 911 commission findings, and just like they gleefully accepted the Warren Commission report. The Kennedy assination records along with Dr. King's assination won't be opened until most of them are dead.
America's elite is motivated by greed. See article
http://seattle.indymedia.org/en/2005/08/247435.shtml
Who has the elite allied itself with, and read through the comments for specific proof.

Now, with the elite's criminal bankers, in the Federal Reserve system, supported and endorsed by Rockefeller's monopolies, they have Americans dangling from ropes. How these private banks that make up the Federal Reserve system print money, (paying only for the cost of the printing, and lend it out at high interest, to the federal government and individuals. Hence the drive up the national debt. Americans are forced to pay about 1/3 their salaries to federal, state and local taxes. They barely have enough money to live. So they take advantage of credit cards. Very few Americans can contribute to political campaigns. Congress gets most of their campaign monies from lobbies. The Israeli lobby is very powerful, since their funded by US foreign aid. Other powerful lobbies, corporations, and other foreign countries, ie China, give substantial money to Congressmen, and they're voting into reality, these foreign interests.

On October 17, Congress has approved for the bankers to double your minimum payments on your credit cards. If your paying 300 a month now on credit cards, after October 17 you'll be paying 600 a month, and if you don't you'll be assesed charges for not making the minimum payments, and your credit ratings will drop.

This is bound to burst the housing bubble, since so many Americans are just making ends meet, and will lead to foreclosures for some, and an increase in the already high unemployment rate, thanls to Congressional approval of CAFTA and NAFTA and other goals of the greedy elite.

There may even be a depression around the corner with the increased energy costs.

Congress wants your sons and daughters to fight Israel's wars of expansion. Just today, Sharon said he wants more settlement in the West Bank.
Until people realize this situation and read up on Assinations of Kennedy, King and others, you will not see how this came about in the land of the free and the home of the brave.After Kennedy's death by the CIA, the CIA got into dealing drugs to pay for their covert operations and noiw this is big business.Oil and drugs, led by the Rockefellers, and the Bushes.

Our own government was responsible for Oklahoma, 911, and the war in Iraq, and Iran is on their front burner.

President Bush is too busy appointing people who cover up his lies, to appoint competent people to head National Security.From Wilkpedia:

Most recently Chertoff has managed the FEMA response to Hurricane Katrina. On the third of September, several days after the initial strike of the hurricane many (including the New Orleans mayor, Ray Nagin) indicated severe dissatisfaction with the response from Washington, citing the delay between the general knowledge of the storm's likely impact and any effective federal response. Lousiana's Governor Blanco declared a state a state of emergency on August 26 [1]; a week later, New Orleans remained in a state of chaos.

Chertoff himself appeared misinformed about the situation, presumably because of the LA governor, even calling the situation at the Convention Center "rumors" after it had been in the news most of the day. NO BODY IN HOMELAND SECURITY WAS WATCHING LIVE BROADCASTS OF NEWS on CNN THAT DAY? THIS IS UNBELEVABLE!While defending the federal government's response in a September 3, 2005 press conference, Chertoff asserted that no one had ever predicted a disaster of this magnitude; however, warnings had in fact come for years from experts in the private sector as well as government agencies at all levels, including FEMA itself, who had identified a disaster such as this as one of the three most likely catastrophes to strike the US. CNN: [2] Houston Chronicle: [3]. Critics (both in the media and political body) of Chertoff's actions say the response to the disaster was inadequate in terms of leadership and promptness. To illustrate a typical view of those critical of the department, New Hampshire State Representative Peter Sullivan said, "Director Brown and Secretary Chertoff have given incompetence a bad name. Their planning was nonexistent. Their response to the crisis was lethargic. Their attempt to shirk responsibility is revolting. At a time when our country needs forthright leaders, this administration [has given] us two men more concerned with partisan spin than with human suffering. Brown and Chertoff failed America, and they must be fired immediately."

Chertoff defended Islamic terrorists and deported the Israeli Mossad who were caught after 911, somer of which are reported today on waynemadsenreport.com to be back in FLORIDA, the staging center for the coming Chinese invasion of biological warfare, and along our southern UNPROTECTED BORDER> See China's Defence Minister's speech! http://www.halturnershow.com/ChineseDefenseMinisterTalksWarAgainstUS.htm
EXcerpts:
Only by using non-destructive weapons that can kill many people will we be able to reserve America for ourselves. There has been rapid development of modern biological technology, and new bio weapons have been invented one after another. Of course we have not been idle; in the past years we have seized the opportunity to master weapons of this kind. We are capable of achieving our purpose of “cleaning up” America all of a sudden. When Comrade Xiaoping was still with us, the Party Central Committee had the perspicacity to make the right decision not to develop aircraft carrier groups and focus instead on developing lethal weapons that can eliminate mass populations of the enemy country.
......................
We must prepare ourselves for two scenarios. If our biological weapons succeed in the surprise attack [on the United States, the Chinese people will be able to keep their losses at a minimum in the fight against the United States
........................................................It is indeed brutal to kill one or two hundred million Americans. But that is the only path that will secure a Chinese century, a century in which the CCP leads the world

From waynemadsenreport.orgSeptember 14, 2005 -- Is Urban Moving Systems chief back in US? There are indications that Israeli national Dominik Suter, the former head of Urban Moving Systems in Weehawken, NJ is back in the United States, this time in south Florida and may be using his actual name. An informed source claims that Suter is working for an aviation-related firm in south Florida.

Suter ran the Weehawken, NJ-based moving company on 9-11 when a number of Urban Moving Systems vans were spotted around north Jersey before and after the hijacked planes struck the World Trade Center. One Urban Moving van was seen at Liberty State Park in Jersey City as the first plane hit the towers. The five occupants, all Israeli nationals, were seen videotaping and celebrating the attack and were dressed in Arab clothing. The five were later arrested near Giant Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. One of the Israelis told police they were at Liberty State Park to "document the event."



Mysterious 911 moving van operator reportedly back in the US

After the Israelis were detained for several months in Brooklyn as terrorist suspects, they were quickly deported to Israel. After the FBI questioned Suter on September 11, he fled the United States on September 14, 2001. The FBI was due to question Suter again before he fled the country. Later, Federal law enforcement agents discovered pipes, caps, explosive chemical materials, and traces of anthrax at the Weehawken warehouse. Suter's name and those of some of his moving employees turned up in a CIA database of foreign intelligence agents. Suter's name also appeared on an FBI 9-11 terrorism suspect list. Suter's year of birth is listed as 1970 with a social security number of 129-78-0926. His addresses before 9-11 are listed as 28 Harlow Crescent Rd., Fairlawn, NJ 07410; 312 Pavonia Ave., Jersey City, NJ 07302; and 15000 Dickens, Suite 11, Sherman Oaks CA. If Suter has been permitted to re-enter the United States, the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security and its chief Michael Chertoff have a lot of explaining to do.
