Take Back America - Part 5
By Karl WB Schwarz

In spite of the artificially rosy picture presented by the DOW, housing starts dipped 14.6% in October and that is further evidence of a structural weakness and decline in the US economy.  That was not an annual drop. That was a drop just from the preceding month of September.  They call that a "free fall" in the markets. 
Just during the months of July through September the housing slump knocked an entire 1% off the domestic growth rate.  That is a whopping number folks.  As reported before, when housing is going into the gutter and the stocks of housing companies are soaring on the stock market, that is a warning sign.  That is clear evidence of manipulation of the markets when the performance of these companies is dropping due to market realities. 
If you have been keeping up with the flow of news, Bush went to Vietnam and compared the Vietnam War debacle to the Bush Iraq debacle, and shortly after that the Pentagon announced that another 57,000 US soldiers will be sent to the Bush debacle.
US Announces Troop Deployments To Iraq
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Pentagon announced Friday that 57,000 U.S. troops, including five combat brigades, have been told to deploy to Iraq early next year - a move that will maintain current force levels there.
Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld signed the deployment orders for about 20,000 soldiers from active duty Army brigades based in North Carolina, Georgia, Washington, Kansas and Italy. Another 10,000 reserves and 27,000 active duty troops are scheduled to go to Iraq in smaller units.
Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman also said that 1,500 soldiers in the South Carolina National Guard's 218th Brigade Combat Team have been told they will deploy to Afghanistan early next year.
The deployments, which will serve as replacements for troops leaving Iraq, will largely maintain the current force level of 141,000. The moves were initially described by military officials last week, but the specific units were announced Friday.
The units scheduled for deployment are the 3rd Infantry Division headquarters from Fort Stewart in Georgia; the 4th Brigade, 1st Infantry Division from Fort Riley in Kansas; the 4th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division from Fort Lewis in Washington; the 3rd Brigade, 3rd Infantry Division from Fort Benning in Georgia; the 1st Brigade, 82nd Airborne Division from Fort Bragg in North Carolina; and the 173rd Airborne Brigade, based in Vicenza, Italy.
At least one of the five combats brigades - the 4th brigade of the 1st Infantry Division - is currently at the National Training Center at Fort Irwin, Calif., undergoing intensive final training for their deployment to Iraq.
Whitman said the deployments reflect a continuing commitment to maintaining security in Iraq. In a written statement, the Pentagon said the "U.S. force rotations will be tailored based upon changes in the security situation. Iraqi security forces continue to develop capability and assume responsibility for security in Iraq."
The announcement comes as some Democrats, who are poised to take control of the House and Senate, continue to press for substantial reduction of U.S. troops in Iraq, and a timetable for that drawdown.
I think I know what the problem is and it is at least two-fold.  First, George Bush does not know what the word debacle means.  That would make his actions both problematic and explainable at the same time.
Secondly, this might be clear evidence that he is simply too stuck-on-stupid to be the President of the United States.  The voice of America was clear on November 7 ­ get out of Iraq!
I see "clear and present danger" evidence that George Bush cannot put his brain into gear before he puts his mouth into motion.  My sources in and around the RNC now consider Bush the biggest liability the GOP has ever had sitting in office.  He is an unfortunate mix of a portrait of an idiot in action and an accident looking for a place to happen. 
Approval of Bush Policy on Iraq Declines
Nov 17, 1:10 PM (ET)
WASHINGTON (AP) - Americans' approval of President Bush's handling of Iraq has dropped to the lowest level ever, increasing the pressure on the commander in chief to find a way out after nearly four years of war.
The latest Associated Press-Ipsos poll found just 31 percent approval for Bush's handling of Iraq, days after voters registered their displeasure at the polls by defeating Republicans and handing control of Congress to the Democrats. The previous low in AP-Ipsos polling was 33 percent in both June and August.
Erosion of support for Bush's Iraq policy was most pronounced among conservatives and Republican men - critical supporters who propelled Bush to the White House and a second term in 2004. A month ago, approval of the president on the issue certain to define his presidency was 36 percent.
His numbers keep dropping and he keeps right on doing stupid things.  Note that he is now eroding the base of conservative and Republican men who supported this moron for a second term.  It is hopeless and he is useless.
His arrogance and stupidity is stupefying.  That he would put more troops in Harm's Way ­ with every warning sign saying head another way - is a sure sign he is unfit for leadership.  When you add in on top of that the loud and clear message of American on November 7, who we have sitting in the Oval Office is not a comforting picture. 
Now that Democrat Representative Steny Hoyer is the Number Two in the House as Majority Leader, and Nancy Pelosi was elected to Speaker of the House unanimously, it is time to arrange the deck chairs on the Titanic and get back to business as usual.  At least, that is what they think in DC.
Earlier, after fellow Democrats selected her to become speaker in January, Pelosi told her colleagues: "We made history and now we will make progress for the American people."
She pledged that, after 12 years in the minority, "we will not be dazzled by money and special interests."
Nancy failed to finish that sentence, "except Israeli special interests via AIPAC and all of their lavish campaign donations."
The 2008 Presidential Parade keeps adding new names and the most recent is one that stands for the Bush Administration sleaze right down at the bottom of the barrel with GW and Dick Cheney.
Former Bush appointee as Secretary of DHHS Tommy Thompson has thrown his hat in the ring. 
Ex-Bush Aide to Explore Presidential Run
Nov 16, 3:34 AM (ET)
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - He's far less known than some of his potential rivals, but former Cabinet secretary and Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson says he'll form a committee allowing him to test the waters for seeking the Republican nomination for president.
Thompson says health care will be one of the top three issues in the next presidential election and that his background heading the Health and Human Services Department makes him a natural fit. The other issues, he says, will be energy independence and the war in Iraq.
"The times are right for my ideas," Thompson told The Associated Press on Wednesday, shortly before he met with a group of about 100 Iowa health professionals.
If one digs deeps on Mr. Thompson, there are warning signs going all the way back to when he was governor of Wisconsin that he is not fit to lead anything.
Before anyone considers backing Tommy Thompson they need to remember:
Forcible rape allegations against him in Wisconsin that his own State Police suppressed while he was Governor.
The "turning the head" at the fast growing VIOXX problem (88,000 to 138,000 heart attacks according to FDA, which means that number is low) to facilitate the greedy desires of Big Pharma, not to mention many other drugs too without appropriate testing regimens to determine if they were safe for human use.  The drug was approved in 1999 under the Clinton Administration as a Fast Track approval but it was Tommy Tom that turned a blind eye to the growing evidence that VIOXX and its other names Ceoxx and Ceeoxx were deadly drugs.
The Fast Track approval of the anthrax vaccine, which is now known to be very detrimental to the health of our soldiers.  In some people it causes massive blood clotting by onset of DVT, or Deep Vein Thrombosis and has killed many of our troops by stroke, heart failure and pulmonary embolisms.  Many of them will be on heavy doses of blood thinning drugs for the rest of their lives.  Thank you Tommy, and GW too for ruining so many young lives.
They have to keep the cover up in place so they will try everything to get one of their own Neocons into the Oval Office.
Some how, some way, they have to get the sleaziest SOB they can find to keep the lid on.  Neither side of the aisle can afford an honest, uncorrupted President who would wield the rule of law at them like a Samurai sword.
It will not take the Democrats long to prove they are still not worthy and still do not represent what Conservative America wants.  That 2 out of every 3 voters in America will be ready to send them packing by 2008.  That is my prediction and I am sticking with it.  Now that they have the House and Senate back after 12 years, and with the lingering bad memories of the Bush Co sleaze, it will not take Americans long to see that the Democrats are at the bottom of the barrel with GW and Cheney, et al.
One of the list members from Australia has added to the questioning of Rep. John Conyers and his waffling on impeachment of Bush.
John Conyers,
Dear Sir,
Pray tell me why should not President be impeached for many demonstrable dismeanors?
Nixon was replaced as was Clinton for much less.
Iraq even under a brutal dictator civil war did not exist.
Vietnam was a total failure as is Iraq.
Respectfully John Cameron. Citizen Australia.   RSVP
Whilst secrecy prevails democracy withers & fails
Another one was sent to me that was more to the point.
The Subject Line: Impeachment 'Off the Table,' Conyers Says
The Body of the Email: Traitor!
You will see every one of the Democratic leaders in the House and Senate turn into a babbling pretzel trying to evade doing their job.  Pay close attention over the next 90-180 days.
Their job is to uphold the Constitution and the laws of the United States and they will come up with some incredible excuses to keep from doing their job.  Keep watching for distraction du jours they focus on rather than the Will of We the People.
They are so blinded on the thoughts of 2008 already that they will forget to do their job and what America just demanded in the last elections.  They are so busy trying to keep their jobs they forget to do their jobs.
I have been asked by many how that Plan would be implemented in the first 30 days.  For starters, the elections are always the second Tuesday in November and the inauguration is January 21.  That is almost 90 days so the assault would be in planning for about 120 days after officially sanctioned by an election.  It also helps to already have a list of targets and know who and where they are.  That list is years old and helps in the planning.  If I or another candidate were elected on a platform like that, you would see many flee to nations where they think they can hide and avoid extradition. 
As far as I am concerned, they could not hide if they were on the Dark Side of the Moon.  There are long lists of people that need to be dressed down and exposed to the public for who and what they are.
During the Transition Period a special team would be readying all cruise missile tubes, all howitzers, all mortars and all ICBMs to have a Shock and Awe day unlike any our nation has ever witnessed.  To back up the FBI would be members of our armed services because we do not have enough FBI agents to tote the paperwork (subpoenas, indictments and arrest warrants) or handle the task.  Some of these people will not want to go quietly. 
It all comes down to very simple questions and solutions that cannot be implemented until America answers those questions and takes action.
When is America going to wake up?
When America wakes up, do they want change or the status quo?
Does America want a return of honor and integrity in our government and quality of life for themselves and their children and grandchildren?
Does America want a peaceful world or are they willing to keep sending their sons and daughters off to far away lands to be maimed or killed for no reason other than greed?
Are we a nation of people or a nation of corporations?
Are we going to continue to let about 2% of the US population control the direction of the other 98% of us to our detriment?
Do we want to keep watching the faces of the same liars in DC and listening to the same lies, or can we accept that change is needed?
Do we have the courage to implement change or is it preferable to keep suffering and sliding downhill?
I see a nation of people who want and need change and a government that refuses to change.  We all need to strive to put our words into actions.
Every nation, every kingdom, every empire and every civilization in history has gone through comparable life cycles. 
The average age of the worlds greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:
1. From bondage to spiritual faith;
2. From spiritual faith to great courage;
3. From courage to liberty;
4. From liberty to abundance;
5. From abundance to complacency;
6. From complacency to apathy;
7. From apathy to dependence;
8. From dependence back into bondage "
We are faced now with government and mass media propaganda machines that accelerate everything in life including their ability to lie and mislead.  The Internet has arisen as a means for people to communicate.  I wish that everything across the Internet had to survive the truth test to be sent but it does not.  What is apparent though is that people are getting better at detecting truth and information from the disinformation and propaganda put out over the Internet by the enemy.
Much like the movie The Matrix, there comes a time when each of us has to choose the red pill or the blue pill.  We have to decide whether to succumb to the status quo or find the courage to stand up and do something about it.
I was asked one time by a colonel of the US Army the following question:
"The world is a far better and far worse place than 99% of Americans know.  Do you know why?"
At the age of 19 I did not know the answer to that question so he explained it to me.
"The world is full of wretched people and evil deeds.  If the news were to show you the real truth, nothing but the truth, your human mind could not stand to bear it for long before your mind would go numb to it.  On the other hand, most kindness, benevolence or charity is not done to get attention or credit.  Most is done from the heart, anonymously expecting no credit, no attention, and many times not even thanks.
Therefore, you do not see the worst nor do you see the best but both are there all day every day.  It is the ultimate battle between evil and good and most pretend it is not occurring, but it is."
America right now is evolving from #7 to #8 on that list above. 
When all Americans can do is vote for the lesser two evils and no change, they are voting for evil and no change.
Most of the rest of the world is rising up and moving forward and we are on a downhill decline due to the pathetic leadership we have and the dysfunctional system they stand for, promote and represent.
I chose to go back to #2 or #3 and seek solutions to fix the problems.  I expect my nation to live up to its word, its destiny, its potential.  I expect my nation to tell the truth and stand for honorable things. 
What number are you?
Your answer could determine whether or not you have a bright future.
Best regards,
