Washington Prepares Us For YET ANOTHER Bailout Donation

money

In a story released earlier this afternoon, by our local affiliate here in Fort Worth, we receive the news (care of Rahm Emanuel) that we will have to donate yet again to the failing bank situation.

This, of course, is because the ginormous amount of funds we’ve already given them–TWICE–was not nearly enough to keep the executives in the lifestyles that they’ve come to expect. So, we must, yet again, donate to institutions that will probably be liquidating soon anyway. What is that old term . .Β  . ‘throwing good money after bad . . . ‘?

Yeah, so Mr. Emanuel is preparing us for another huge stimulus for the banks. I don’t understand why CNN can’t fund the bailout–since they’re so pro-tax-the-people-blind.

OH, Emanuel did make a point to SOFTEN the blow and sell the idea of the bailout addendum by promising that they will NOT nationalize the banks after all. (ALERT: Ocean front property for sale in New Mexico, Arizona, and Arkansas–CHEAP at only $3 trillion per day–I mean acre.)

Please do not miss this little gem of a story, because it will probably be played down by the main stream media. I hope that at least Fox will be on it and get this news out to the people. There are still MANY out there that really have no idea about what is going on in our world. The truth is EVERYwhere, if you want to accept it. But that’s up to you.

National Tax Day Tea Party–Revolution Begins

Make no mistake, Americans are getting sick and tired of the games that Washington law makers are playing with our monies.

People of all ages, all races, all walks of life are uniting for the overall good: to send a clear and distinct message to our administration in Washington (and in political seats all across the country,Β  local and state) that EVERY lawmaker can be replaced. He/she can be retired, and a better man/woman that actually loves this country can take their place.

We need to throw out all the politicians and replace them with TRUE STATESMEN. Understand that there is a world of difference between a ‘politician’, and a ‘statesman’. Learn the difference. Ronald Reagan was a statesman, the head of our current administration is a motivational speaker full of empty promises and hot air.

On Greta Wire, she has a pole asking if this HUGE event that took place all across our nation today was a one time event, or the beginning of a serious movement.

When I took the poll there had been 28794 votes taken at that point. 26437 (or 99%–yes, NINETY-NINE PERCENT) all voted YES, that this is the Beginning of a movement. Only 357 (or 1%) voted No.

World Net Daily ran the story, “Taxpayers descend upon politicians in numbers far beyond expectations

Ning Results for Tax Day Tea Parties across the nation are here.

Pajama TV is running an article instructing individuals on starting their own tea party protests.

And Glenn Beck’s site announced the governor of Texas announcing that we can indeed secede, it’s completely doable, and at this point fiscally responsible to the tax payers of this great state. (But that’s another story entirely, which I’ll have to add later. I’ve already written two articles on that subject in this blog site at an earlier date.) My point is, people are fed up and ready for REAL change. not ‘chains’.

There is some totally awesome video footage taken from the Tax Day Tea Parties from around the nation. They really stir the patriotism. And if you haven’t heard Lloyd Marcus’ Tea Party Song, then you’re missing out! πŸ™‚

I’ll include some videos here for your viewing pleasure: πŸ™‚

Bash’s Good Friday Message

Bash, a US Marine Vet and AM radio/Internet radio talk show host released this video yesterday. He very graciously provided the embed code on LiveLeak.

You can watch the original vid and read his blogs here: http://www.chandlerswatch.com/2009/04/10/bashs-good-friday-message/

And you can hear his Blog Talk Radio show Bash and Louie Live! here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/Rabid-Bash

Ken Timmerman on Michael Savage Show

I took this video from You Tube. You can visit the Michael Savage channel to see his collection.

This is some pretty stout stuff.

The message here is so disturbing! People need to know what’s going on in our world.

White House TV

WDC001

Wow, this is interesting. I vaguely remember watching/reading something on this a while back.

Just launched today (April 1, 2009). Whitehouse.com, andΒ  Whitehouse network and TV.

I hope this enterprise does well, it’s innovative, it’s smart, it’s needed, and it’s technologically cool. πŸ™‚

The goals expressed for this endeavor are:

  • Claims to be the first live online political news network.
  • Promises to beΒ  neutral and non-partisan
  • Will strive to consistently provide direct current info on American polity and provide real-time updates on the actions/goings on of our elected leaders.
  • It promises to allow a place/opportunity for Americans to express their opinions on current issues.
  • Live talk show with call-in capability using skype, cell,Β  and landline phones.
  • User generated content. They’re offering the platform for anyone to implement their own live call-in talk show with call-inΒ  and live chat capability using their network. All you’ll need would be a camera and computer with internet connection.
  • Offer a toolkit for more experienced videographers to create more polished self-created shows.
  • Promise their hosted programs and productions will be consistent with the type of professional programming we’re used to seeing on the regular tv channels from the syndicates (CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, etc).
  • Plans to air newscasts 3 times daily, morning, noon, evening, with one special evening program nightly to start out.
  • Their goal is to go to 24 a day programming eventually

Quote from the site:

make your show live in minutes
You now have your chance to have your own Live TV Show just like a Sean Hannity or Keith Olbermann. All you need is a camera and an Internet connection. This is a Free Service, so start broadcasting.
