Figures Lie & Liars
Figure, Current Edition

By Karl W B Schwarz

Some of the sages and philosophers of years ago knew the likes of George W. Bush and many that we see in our government.
"A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious." ~Aristotle (384-322 BC) Greek philosopher; Source: Politics, 343 B.C.
Behind the cloak of piety many evil things have been done throughout history. Even when the killing starts and one of the most basic orders within the Ten Commandments is violated, "thou shalt not kill", they claim God is on their side. It has been my position for my entire life that such people do not have a clue what God thinks or whose side God is on.
There is a big difference, legally and theologically, between self defense and premeditated murder or carrying out the objectives of greed which crosses over yet another line of the Ten Commandments "thou shalt not covet."
Watch the story regarding the assassination of Lebanon industry ministry Pierre Gemayel.
Lebanese Cabinet Minister Is Killed
Nov 21, 11:15 AM (ET)
BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) - Prominent anti-Syrian Christian politician Pierre Gemayel was assassinated in a suburb of Beiruton Tuesday, his Phalange Party radio station and Lebanon's official news agency reported.
Syria re-established diplomatic relations with Iraq and this happens within hours.
The Lebanese government had condemned Syria for political assassinations but then withdrew that and this happened any way.
Do not be shocked or surprised if the trails lead back to Israel and their attempts to destabilize the changes that are occurring in the Middle East due to our problems in Iraq and the recent elections in the US that are changing the dynamics. Sooner or later the Democrats will yield to the will of We the People or they will be shown the door in 2008.
What is going on in the Middle East Arab nations right now is not in favor of the Israeli objectives. Israel did not win inLebanon during the summer. Israel does not want Syria and Iran teaming up with Iraq but it will happen any way.
If Israel does not like it they can thank George Bush and Dick Cheney.
The US is so embroiled in Iraq that an attack on Iran is not feasible or advisable. We cannot handle what is on our plate right now and Israel sure as Hell cannot handle Iran and its approximately 70 million people. From Lebanon all the way toAfghanistan is what they call The Shiite Crescent and it comprises about 150 million people that are not going to roll over forIsrael at all.
They all want peace and prosperity, except Israel and the United States that do not wish for them to have that.
The Zionist agenda for the Middle East with the US as the blunt instrument is not working. Eretz Israel is about as sellable as trying to sell snow and ice to an Eskimo or cow dung to a cow rancher.
According to the Bush IT czar, the US is not producing enough engineers to meet the needs for IT jobs.,1759,2060613,00.

Well, when the US is 17th in scientists graduated with PhD degrees and we have many going into the US Army instead of engineering school because that is the only job they can find and they cannot afford college, it is little wonder to me that the UScannot produce or keep up with other nations in the IT field.
If you want to see the proverbial bottom line about what US policy is all about, our defense contractors are out selling massive amounts of weapons to unstable regimes that our government (Republicans and Democrats) will then point the finger at as terrorist regimes and being worthy of US Shock and Awe just like they did to Saddam Hussein. Read the most recent article by Jerry Mazza and pay attention to the link to the Boston Globe article by Bryan Bender.
Why is there a Global War on Terror? Because we invented it because it is great for the sales of arms by certain insiders that will then sell more when we start the war. Besides, it is really convenient for the takeover of oil and natural gas reserves. As you will read below, your sons and daughters, or maybe you, are headed into a bogus war. You need to start standing up and saying "not only no way, but Hell No too!"
To make matters worse, foreigners have had their fill of being treated like crap by our thugs at the airports and port of entry points and overall revenues from foreign tourism is down. type=domesticNews&storyid=2006-11-20
T221513Z_01_N20294102_RTRUKOC_0_US -USA-IMAGE.xml&src=rss&rpc=22
Aren't we a happy free America! People do not even want to travel to the US any more because this nation has become so rude to others.
They are not protecting America. They are trying to bludgeon us all into the New World Order of being treated like crap and cattle for the rest of our days.
Maybe you want to be complaint to them out of fear or some mistaken idea they are protecting you by making you take off your shoes. It is all a charade. When they try to shake me down I advise them to go find a terrorist and quit treating me like one.
They have a saying when evaluating business plans, economic figures, true market performance, conducting due diligence, etc that goes like this: "Figures lie and liars figure."
Washington, DC is full of liars from wall to wall.
During the 3Q 2006 the drop in new housing starts knocked the entire US domestic growth rate from 2.6% to 1.6%. That is by any definition anemic and mediocre and it can easily get much worse.
Just from September to October new housing starts dropped by 14.6% in just one month and we have winter closing in which is a down time in many areas of the US due to weather and cold temperatures alone.
I trust that anyone who owns a vehicle watched the oil prices spike and yank much more money out of your pocket, or your credit card or your ATM card. As the elections neared the price at the pump came down by a considerable amount and now they are inching back up.
You have been sucker punched again. Get it?
As you read the following excerpt from a recent article, note how they missed the past predications and are now predicting what they think will happen next. Frankly, they do not have a clue and their crystal ball is no better than the next person's.
Forecasters Look for Economy to Slow
Nov 20, 6:22 AM (ET)
WASHINGTON (AP) - The U.S. economy has been battered by a bigger- than-expected slump in housing but will keep growing next year as consumers get relief from soaring energy costs.
That is the view of a panel of 50 top forecasters in a survey released Monday by the National Association for Business Economics.
The NABE panel predicted that the overall economy, as measured by the gross domestic product, would expand by 2.5 percent in 2007.
That is down slightly from the previous survey in September which forecast that the economy would grow by 2.7 percent next year. The expectations for 2006 were also marked down with GDP growth now put at 3.3 percent instead of 3.4 percent forecast in the previous survey. The economy expanded by 3.2 percent in 2005 and 3.9 percent in 2004.
A bigger-than-anticipated slump in housing was the primary reason for the reductions. The NABE panel said that housing construction would fall by 3.5 percent this year and an even larger 5.5 percent in 2007.
Both of those figures are larger declines than the NABE forecasters had previously predicted. Both would represent quite a reversal from the 8.6 percent increase in residential investment for all of 2005 compared to 2004.
With that large of a fall in new housing starts for next year, next year is bleak already and will probably get worse due to our policies and unforeseen blow ups on several possible fronts such as the stock market collapsing or taking serious dives from the current artificial highs. Reality does come home to roost every now and then in spite of the liars that like to lie about the true figures.
The bigger problem however is the sales of existing homes fell in 38 states and that is even with significant reductions in the prices of homes.
Realtors: Home Sales Fall in 38 States
Monday November 20, 10:38 AM EST
WASHINGTON (AP) - Sales of existing homes fell in 38 states during the summer, led by steep declines in Nevada,Arizona, Florida and California, as the once-booming housing market showed further signs of a steep slowdown.
The National Association of Realtors reported that sales dipped to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 6.27 million units nationwide, down by 12.7 percent from the same period a year ago.
The declines were the largest in once-booming areas of the country. Sales fell by 38 percent in Nevada, 36 percent inArizona; 34.2 percent in Florida and 28.6 percent in California.
In all, nine states had sales declines in the summer of 20 percent or more compared to the third quarter of 2005.
The weakness in sales also affected prices with 45 metropolitan areas experiencing price declines, according to a separate survey the Realtors did of 148 metropolitan areas.
In short, most Americans have one nest egg and that is the equity in their homes and that is now worth less than they thought it was. Welcome to the realities of government policies when they hit you personally. The problem with a weak dollar is it undermines values here, increases the cost of foreign goods such as oil that is refined into gasoline for our cars.
It is a fiscal policy issue and if it puts you into the poorhouse Washington, DC could not care less.
American housing is in big trouble across the board. What we have in progress is a "mark to market" situation where the true values of what someone is willing to pay is breaking down the house of cards that escalated the prices beyond what the homes were really worth. They call it a Buyer's Market but it is a little more complicated than that.
You are already seeing serious reactions to the crisis in three ways if you are paying attention:
40 and 50 year mortgages
100% mortgages, some interest only and all you pay is the closing cost. I know some who have been living in those million dollar homes for years and the loan balance has not been reduced at all. They will never own the home.
Homes on the market for over a year and the price keeps dropping and no offers or the offers are down in the range that the home will eventually sell at.
Many cannot sell at the market prices, pay off the first mortgage and home equity line and walk away with anything. It is called reality coming home to roost but many will not do the math and see it as a larger economic dislocation due to the weakness of the US dollar due to the policies of our government.
Many Americans are going to lose their homes next year due to declining income, rising interest rates (a direct result of US fiscal policy) and their home mortgage interest rates will re-set and they will not be able to keep up with the increased payments.
At a very minimum, many Americans will see serious declines in their quality of life and disposable income to afford utilities, food, clothing, entertainment and vacations. They will be a slave to their mortgage company and fighting to provide other essential needs like food, clothing, utilities and gasoline for the car.
You watch and pay close attention. The Democrats will not care about that and we already know the Neocon and Zionist controlled Republicans do not care about that.
Sooner or later Americans will figure out that it will take a new type of leadership to care about that.
Where it gets ugly is when the first mortgage or the first and second mortgage exceeds the value of the home and there is no equity in the home. Lose the job and the home is next. You have no idea how many were living in million dollar homes and suddenly are in apartments.
I know, my ex-wife and I got to suffer through that and it is not much fun. We had a seven figure income and then suddenly nothing and our lives came unraveled. We watched our American Dream die right in front of our eyes.
One of the people on this email update list was our neighbor and saw it happen.
People should be furious, livid, and marching on DC but they are not. I know many will procrastinate and wrongly assume that everything will be better next week or next month. They will play the part of Scarlett O'Hara and wrongly assume that everything will be okay tomorrow. Many will wake up one morning and realize that tomorrow is Gone with the Wind.
Rep. Charles Rangel wants to bring back the draft but his proposal completely misses the point. We have many joining the US Army, Marines, National Guard, etc for the bonuses, housing benefits and college education because the policies of the idiots we have in Congress have gutted the US economy and the economic engine to produce decent jobs. I have met many that the only reason they are in the military is economic survival, not because they think they are defending America from the GWOT boogeyman.
It is bad enough to draft sons to be sent off to bogus wars and bogus reasons for deployment but now they plan to draft and send our girls too.
I will give you a hint. This is coming from the newly elected majority Democrats because the Republicans knew better than to touch it.
And ­ the Democrats stand for what? Anti-war Party? You are a consummate fool if you believe that mantra from the DNC.
Young girls must prepare for the draft

Selective Service Director Lewis Brodsky
"In Israel everyone serves "
Congress is writing the legislation as we speak
Those photos are all of major supporters of Zionist Israel.
Present status
Today young girl's must enlist ­ they cannot be drafted
Under consideration
WASHINGTON-The chief of the U.S. Selective Service System has proposed registering women for the military draft and requiring that young Americans regularly inform the government about whether they have training in niche specialties needed in the armed services. Source
The Selective Service System, if given the mission and additional funding, is capable of registering and drafting women with its existing infrastructure.
Proposed federal legislation would reinstate a draft that would include all men and women ages 18-26 and mandate other forms of national service for those unable to serve in the military because of physical or psychological problems.
The bill's sponsors, Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y. and Sen. John Conners, D-S.C., said the legislation is needed to make the military composition more racially and economically similar to the overall society.
If our great country becomes involved in an all-out war, the sacrifice must be shared"," Rangel said in a statement. "This bill would end the current discriminatory system where poor people of color disproportionately enlist in the armed forces, see combat and die."
For the sake of our national security, global peace and stability, and the defense and promotion of freedom in the post-9/11 world require a larger military force than we have today. It is urgent legislation be ready for President Bush to sign allowing the country to draft eligible women.
Who are the ones behind it?
Charlie Rangel leads the charge for the Neocons. A New York "Poodle "
Bet you did not see that coming from the Democrats, did you? Their Zionist insiders know more bodies are needed because every policy is failing.
What a slap in the face reality it is to get rid of the Republican Congress and then find out the Democrats are planning to draft sons and daughters for a bogus war due to failed policies our elected leaders are too gutless to face. If they want a draft I say the first 535 to go are the members of the US Senate and House. That way we can get rid of many of them for sure and not have to put up with their lying asses any more.
I did. I saw the Democrats just laying and waiting to pull this one. There has been too much talk about it and Bush and the Republican controlled Congress would not touch it for political reasons. Watch the Democrats commit political suicide. They do it every time they get control of the House and Senate. They are as predictable as the sun coming up in the east and setting in the west.
There are now more Jews in Congress and more supporters of Israel than at any time in our history.
They are all a bunch of liars. It does not matter if they are Republican or Democrat, they are all liars and unfit to serve this nation.
You can bet the Democratic majority in the House and Senate do not see this as a problem. It will be just more drafted bodies for more body bags for Israeli objectives and failed US policies.
37 Percent of U.S. Births Out of Wedlock
Nov 21, 3:56 PM (ET)
ATLANTA (AP) - Out-of-wedlock births in the United States have climbed to an all-time high, accounting for nearly four in 10 babies born last year, government health officials said Tuesday.
While out-of-wedlock births have long been associated with teen mothers, the teen birth rate actually dropped last year to the lowest level on record. Instead, births among unwed mothers rose most dramatically among women in their 20s.
The overall rise reflects the burgeoning number of people who are putting off marriage or living together without getting married.
The increase in births to unwed mothers was seen in all racial groups, but rose most sharply among Hispanics. It was up among all age groups except youngsters ages 10 to 17.
That is comforting. At least our 10 year old girls are not getting pregnant. That we have people that want a situation of no moral values is incredible and then they turn around and wonder why life in America is turning into a cesspool.
I cannot say for you but having the clueless lead the clueless in America is not comforting to me.
Blair went to Afghanistan to assure them that the UK will fight the GWOT for 30 years to win. You can be sure that the Afghans were not dancing in the streets. They will not win against an imaginary foe but they are doing a very good job of creating many new enemies. That is another lie that is backfiring in our face big time. They call it blow back in the military and intelligence circles when the deal does not go down and there are going to be repercussions.
Bush refuses to change the approach to dealing with Iraq while at the same time embracing and supporting every act of Israel. Even in the recent UN vote reprimanding Israel and heavily watered down due to US demands, John Bolton lost it and made an ass of himself (revealed his true self) to the entire UN.
Bolton in extraordinary outburst against United Nations
Calcutta News.Net
Saturday 18th November, 2006
The U.S. Ambassador to the UN, John Bolton, launched a scathing attack on the United Nations Friday Bolton was furious over the adoption by the General Assembly of a resolution which said the assembly regretted the deaths of 19 civilians in an attack by the Israeli military in the town of Beit Hanoun last week. Despite the resolution being significantly watered down at the behest of the United States, and being passing by 156 votes to seven, Bolton launched a blistering attack on the UN, and many of its members. "Many of the sponsors of that resolution are notorious abusers of human rights themselves, and were seeking to deflect criticism of their own policies," he said. "This type of resolution serves only to exacerbate tensions by serving the interests of elements hostile to Israel's inalienable and recognized right to exist."
"This deepens suspicions about the United Nations that will lead many to conclude that the organization is incapable of playing a helpful role in the region," Bolton continued.
Maybe Bolton's problem is he cannot see that the US is now a major violator of human rights in the US and abroad. Maybe he is just as myopic as George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.
Maybe he is like Bush and does not know what the word debacle means.
If you want to see what a complete traitor George W. Bush is to the ideal that is America and the sovereignty of our Nation and why he regularly craps on America, read this article at the link. Your eyebrows might be up at your hairline regardless of where that is at.
Conservative Republican my ass! George Bush is the biggest fraud we have ever had in the Oval Office. Everyone knew thatClinton was a liar but Bush is nothing he pretends to be.
For those that read this email and want to support Mr. Stuck-on- Stupid that is your Constitutional right to do so, just as it is our Constitutional right to think all such people are traitors against the best interests of the United States and its many good people.
It will not take Americans long to figure out that the Democrats are traitors too. Most are already seeing it all too clearly.
Only a functional illiterate would go to Vietnam and make statements as if America won the Vietnam War and try to make mental leaps to make analogies between the Vietnam War and the Iraq War without admitting failure or the obvious. The only similarity is both are lost wars and the United States, the world's most powerful military force, lost them both. Both were lost for the same reasons ­ idiots in the Oval Office that have not a clue what they are doing.
When we have a president wage war on a lie (Lyndon Johnson and George W. Bush) God will make sure you get your ass handed to you.
I have seen that too many times in my life already and like a rerun of a lousy movie I am tired of seeing it.
They are not pursuing a valid agenda. That is the problem.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower said in 1963:
"Through their state legislatures and without regard to the federal government, the people can demand conventions to propose amendments that can and will reverse any trends they see as fatal to true representative government."
There is a hint as to what to do America.
This is but a very small example of what is wrong with the Culture of Corruption America has become when Rule of Law is a complete joke in our nation.
Coin Dealer Gets 18 Years In Investment Scandal
POSTED: 8:24 am EST November 20, 2006
UPDATED: 10:05 am EST November 20, 2006
TOLEDO, Ohio -- A former GOP fundraiser was sentenced to 18 years in prison Monday for embezzling at least
$1.1 million from a state investment, part of a scandal that contributed to the Republican Party's loss of the governor's office.
Tom Noe, a politically connected coin dealer, was sentenced Monday in Lucas County Common Pleas Court.
He was convicted last week of theft, corrupt activity, money laundering, forgery and tampering with records.
He is a penny-ante thief compared to the bigger thugs.
On one side you have Chertoff claiming that International Law threatens the US.
And on the other side you have Bush Speak telling that America should be a borderless idea rather than a sovereign nation and we won the Vietnam War and are winning the Iraq War. That is a perfect example of what booze and cocaine do to the human brain.
It is also prima facie evidence that Homeland Security is a complete fraud and protects only this government, not you, not me.
This borderless delusion is proof positive that the GWOT is a fraud.
It is all lies to dazzle, daze and confuse the masses.
Chertoff is afraid of international law because we have people in our government (including him) that are war criminals that do not want to get hung by their balls for war crimes. It is that simple.
You have the Bolton outburst at the UN because the United States does not want anyone looking too closely at the hypocrisy of US policies regarding Israel and the Middle East. It is that simple.
You have George W. Bush as the biggest babbling pretzel war criminal of all and the Democrat controlled Congress bending over backwards so they can look at their ass rather than face the reality of the facts.
You have Democrats pushing to draft sons and daughters to go fight in a bogus war that is all about oil and gas, not protectingAmerica. They will flee from the word multipolarization like Count Dracula had to flee from the Sun.
You have the housing market in melt down mode and the US economy is right behind it because the house of cards is coming down.
You have the stocks of home building companies soaring on Wall Street and they cannot sell their inventories and cannot afford to start new homes without getting the suckers in the stock market to finance the continuation of the bubble to go start more new homes that buyers cannot afford.
Many keep asking why we must vote them all out.
"Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt."
--Samuel Adams
Father of the American Revolution
Because they are corrupt and do not represent your best interest.
It is not the American people that are generally corrupt. It is the government that pretends to be honorable and they are not.
Most Americans have never been to DC so they do not know what a DC limo really looks like:
Yeah, I have had my fill of them.
Happy Thanksgiving. The one in 2007 might be rather lean for many Americans.
Best regards,
