If THIS is true Obama is screwed!

Senator: US Soldiers Being Killed by Terror Groups Backed With US Money

ABC News:

The United States has paid more than $150 million to companies in Afghanistan that are accused of helping to finance terrorist attacks on American soldiers and facilities, according to the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction.

"It's like the United States government subsidizing the Taliban, al Qaeda, the Haqqani network, those groups that are trying to shoot and kill our soldiers," said Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., a member of the Senate's Armed Services and Foreign Relations committees, in an interview to be broadcast tonight on ABC News' "World News with Diane Sawyer".

A list of 43 companies in Afghanistan was compiled by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) using data from both classified Pentagon investigative reports and Commerce Department lists of terror-connected companies.

The same evidence

of paying off the 'alledged' enemy we are fighting against was documented early in the Iraq War during the Bush administration, but nothing was ever done about it, so nothing is going to happen here either. The Corporate Collectivists in our government aren't going to go against their Masters in the MIC! Those who are supporters of Rand, should use your 1st Amendment rights and flood Rand's office with this documented evidence, and question if he is going to do anything about it. This is your chance to prove to those of us, who are very skeptical of Rand's 'wishy washy' aproach with the Liberty Movement. Don't just play the easy game of voting me down, take action to prove us wrong!

A few years back

A few years back I read an article that claimed that the US had been paying the Taliban protection money in order to keep supply lines open. I don't think anyone ever denied it and of course the MSM ignored the story.

This information has been on the DP and the MSM before, right?

As I understood it, the US is financing both sides of the war in the tribal areas of Afghanistan. I remember a news report that the military contractors, paid to cover our supply lines, simply pay the rival tribes "protection money" for safe passage. Then that protection money is funneled to the enemy to buy arms and supplies with. After all, who would want to fight a war if you can't make any money at it? LOL

I keep telling everyone

that they are levying war against us and no one seems to believe me. How long is it going to take everyone to realize they are levying war against us and subject to arrest under Article 3 Section 3 of the US Constitution?

Is our military personnel so stupid that they will allow themselves to be their war criminals and canon fodder or are they going to actually uphold the law?

The most powerful Law of Nature is Time. It is finite and we all will run out of it. Use this Law to your advantage, for it offers you infinite possibilities...

US Marines in Tripoli with the Misrata Militia

From a facebook friend yesterday: A dear friend in Libya brought news of the massacre of protestors near her home. The protestors were carrying white flags to show it was a peaceful protest. In her status, she said the militia were marching on the city. Now it looks like the US is working with that militia....

This happened Friday:



Every President in history has proven regrettable in some way.

I've lived with eleven: Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, W. Bush and the current president.

Congress carries a $17 trillion dollar debt. They are only free to listen to the creditors.

Government helps by enslaving us to creditors.

The puppet in the White House has long been a loan salesman.

Free includes debt-free!

You're kidding, right?

The psychopaths calling themselves representatives of the United States government, and in the name of fighting for freedom, created Al Qaeda. Do you think it will somehow now cause a stir that they continue to fund what they have created?

Thank God the president is

Thank God the president is black so nobody will touch him. Now we get to see the true psychopathic nature of people ruling the USA, and the criminal nature of congress critters letting him get away with it.

Nothing will undo Obama. The

Nothing will undo Obama. The Republicrats wont impeach him because deep down their big secret is after seeing what this guy has gotten away with they have NO desire to impeach him. They just want the power back so they can do the same things for their own agenda. America is screwed! The people wont do anything to stop it and both parties know they can do pretty much whatever they want while in office and nobody will do a GD thing about it. Simple as that !

"If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin."
Samuel Adams

This probably won't undo Obama.

Maybe I'm just getting cynical in my old age, but I'm willing to guess that Obama's "people" will just say that Senator Jeanne Shaheen is a racist and dismiss everything she has to say.

Until I see actual articles of impeachment with bi-partisan support in the U.S. House, it's all just talk. I'm not doubting that this is true, I'm just doubting the moral state of the average voter and their representation.

“My attitude toward progress has passed from antagonism to boredom. I have long ceased to argue with people who prefer Thursday to Wednesday because it is Thursday.” - G.K. Chesterton

'Dumb & Numb' describes the average American today . .

After decades of being dumbed down in the public 'schools' & watching t.v. junk this is the result.
The average American doesn't read another book after high school. 42% of college graduates don't read another book after leaving university.
They merely parrot the views provided by the mass media and have no capacity to look at facts or think critically.

During the last election I showed a hard core repub videos showing romnoid's support of the exact things that he disliked about O. I've shown O supporters videos with promises he broke.
They just got angry and walked off - still loyal to 'their guy'. Most people seem to hate logic supported with facts.

Naw, I don't think this will have any impact on O. The Anglo-Americans have been supporting radical groups for years. They are used to de-stabilize the region. There have been too many wars where patriotic, but naive American troops have given their lives.

Thomas Jefferson warned that a nation cannot be ignorant and remain free.

Due process???

"But despite the broader findings, the Pentagon has resisted permanently blocking the companies from getting more U.S. contracts because, its lawyers say, it would violate the "due process" of the companies which would not be able to see the classified information that details their alleged ties to terror groups." The companies wouldn't be prosecuted - just denied lucrative contracts for jobs!!! Since when do we owe "due process" to job applicants?

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
~ John Muir

I've said it before and I'll say it again

Obama could walk down the street beating old ladies to death with puppies while wearing a baby seal skin jacket and nobody would care. And no nit-picking, you guys know what I mean by nobody.

You're probably right

Sad as it is

Love Liberty, be Vigilant

"Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty" (2 Corinthians 3:17)

Faith in God will prevail all things!

Nah, black teflon prez

won't be affected, the sheeple will just keep grazing. But what really gets me is:

But despite the broader findings, the Pentagon has resisted permanently blocking the companies from getting more U.S. contracts because, its lawyers say, it would violate the "due process" of the companies which would not be able to see the classified information that details their alleged ties to terror groups.

Oh, so a foreign corp. is guaranteed 'due process', but not us ordinary americans. Guess that makes sense to ABC.

We've been giving them money

We've been giving them money since th beginning. Where it's big companies in millions or individuals, we've been dishing out cash in afghanistan like it grow on trees.

Finally HOME! For Good!

First, DOY

...the islamic boogieman is not an organic creature, it has to be tended to and cultivated by the west. Second, Obama is not and will never be screwed much like Bush and all the minions of evil before him. This is staged to make the statists more appealing to the grassroots.

They tried to bury us, they didn't know we were seeds. -mexican proverb


Will never be screwed. The powers that be will make sure he is taken care of. Just take a look at Bush.

Check the Blumenthal website link.

This is an old story resurrected to give New England democrats some much needed credibility.
I didn't see any republicans mentioned in the newly reported old story.

Thursday, December 6, 2012

Along with Senators Blumenthal and Shaheen, the letter was also signed by Senators Richard Burr (R-N.C.), Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), Jim Webb (D-Va.), James Inhofe (R-Okla.) and John Cornyn (R-Texas).


I wasnt in the room when the Sen. from NH made those comments

But I have no reason to doubt their validity.

As for the govt funding virtually every criminal organization on the planet, this has been common knowledge for years.

Not sure why you would think this would screw Obama. He has survived worse. He'll just say that he didnt know, and they need to remember that the american people deserve better. Then nothing will change.


My same reaction

Exactly how is the sold out installed self enriching traitor puppet of Rothschild going to ever be SCREWED as long as he does the Evil bidding of the Ratchild crime family?

Make a bold statement that is just another plain lie. Next time you make a bold statement back it up with some type of reason.

So please again explain this screwing to me in some sensible way?
