Patrick Henry “Give Me Liberty OR Give Me Death”

 A SITE FOR TRUTH SEEKERS; DEFENDERS OF FREEDOM, LIBERTY & THE CONSTITUTION

Chris Hoyer has been a Democrat for 40 years. I know their tactics. They will not put a fast one one me. I have written legislation for Senators. I have worked closely with some big names in Washington and the Democratic party before I had children. I have been a Democrat my entire life.  I’m still a delegate.  Last year I went from a ‘D’emocrat-with-a-capital-D to a ‘d’emocrat-with-a-lowercase-d.

This year I’m an independent seeking TRUTH.

So if the liberals think they can pull a fast one on me, they are messing with the wrong person.  I know their culture. I know how they operate.  They are lying. They are desperate.

It is time to arise and defend, until my last breath, the document responsible for the marvelous work and wonder we call America.

I struggle to pay my bill like everyone else.

However, I value FREEDOM AND LIBERTY over any material  possession.

I’m willing to lose it all that my grandchildren can look back and remember A PATRIOT.

We have been told freedom is not free. Will you help in paying her price like our brave men and women in the service? Except we are fighting a war of words. Are you willing to stand up and be numbered with the freedom-fighters by resisting the popular sentiment of material security above all else?

The people will always find the truth.

Let’s just hope we can stop the madness now before it takes years to fix.

Please help the cause by calling your local news stations, spreading this page to friends and participating in events like the re-tea-parities or the 9/12 project.

 

BUT AS FOR ME—GIVE ME LIBERTY or GIVE ME DEATH
SPEECH by PATRICK HENRY 

No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The questing before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.

 

 

Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves and the House. Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with those warlike preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us: they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne! In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free– if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending–if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained–we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!

They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable  and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace  but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

Since, WE THE PEOPLE, the Citizens of the U.S.A. own 80% of AIG, WE THE PEOPLE choose to exercise our rights as majority stock holders of the most Corrupt Corporation in U.S. & Global history by firing all Executives from the Chairman/CEO to every Board Member and their assistants and secretaries !!!

Further, WE THE PEOPLE shall auction off every single asset of AIG’s and of these AIG Characters !!! It seems to me that this is the most effective, effecient, transparent methodology known to man to establish today’s true fair market values for ANY & ALL assets is the absolute open public out cry auction !!! In fact, in EVERY, (ok FREE Countries that actually allow WE THE PEOPLE to exercise our “Braveheart-Mel Gibson’s FREEDOM(S)), Country Forbes 400, Fortune 500 and Government of the 7 Continents DEMAND an Absolute Public Outcry Auction DAILY.

Let’s see we could call it the U.S. “Sea” versus “Air” Marshalls Services and pay them say a percentage of the Insurance Companies premiums to defend our U.S.A. (& Global Ships) with terminal/deadly force and satellite/high tech assistance. Sort of like the “Big Brother” machine can read our newspapers and movements of every one of us already. So why NOT implement the same resources for good ?

Besides there is a Global DEPRESSION (oops PMM = politically-Multi-Media-wise we are suppose to still use the word recession). So why not create a capitalist on the open market system of bidding for contracts renewable by the victims (end users) who are burdened to “self fund/insure” with these “new Anti-Piracy” Corporations ?

U.S. Taxpayers Risk $9.7 Trillion on Bailout Programs (Update1)

By Mark Pittman and Bob Ivry
Feb. 9 (Bloomberg) — The stimulus package the U.S. Congress is completing would raise the government’s commitment to solving the financial crisis to $9.7 trillion, enough to pay off more than 90 percent of the nation’s home mortgages.
The Federal Reserve, Treasury Department and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation have lent or spent almost $3 trillion over the past two years and pledged up to $5.7 trillion more. The Senate is to vote this week on an economic-stimulus measure of at least $780 billion. It would need to be reconciled with an $819 billion plan the House approved last month.
Only the stimulus bill to be approved this week, the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program passed four months ago and $168 billion in tax cuts and rebates enacted in 2008 have been voted on by lawmakers. The remaining $8 trillion is in lending programs and guarantees, almost all under the Fed and FDIC. Recipients’ names have not been disclosed.
“We’ve seen m oney go out the back door of this government unlike any time in the history of our country,” Senator Byron Dorgan, a North Dakota Democrat, said on the Senate floor Feb. 3. “Nobody knows what went out of the Federal Reserve Board, to whom and for what purpose. How much from the FDIC? How much from TARP? When? Why?”
Financial Rescue
The pledges, amounting to almost two-thirds of the value of everything produced in the U.S. last year, are intended to rescue the financial system after the credit markets seized up about 18 months ago. The promises are composed of about $1 trillion in stimulus packages, around $3 trillion in lending and spending and $5.7 trillion in agreements to provide aid. The total already tapped has decreased about 1 percent since November, mostly because foreign central banks are using fewer dollars in currency-exchange agreements called swaps.
Federal Reserve lending to banks peaked at a record $2.3 trillion in December, dropping to $1.83 trillion by last week. The Fed balance sheet is still more than double the $880 billion it was in the week before Sept. 17 when it agreed to accept lower-quality collateral.
The worst financial crisis in two generations has erased $14.5 trillion, or 33 percent, of the value of the world’s companies since Sept. 15; brought down Bear Stearns Cos. and Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc.; and led to the takeover of Merrill Lynch & Co. by Bank of America Corp.
The $9.7 trillion in pledges would be enough to send a $1,430 check to every man, woman and child alive in the world. It’s 13 times what the U.S. has spent so far on wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to Congressional Budget Office data, and is almost enough to pay off every home mortgage loan in the U.S., calculated at $10.5 trillion by the Federal Reserve.
‘All the Stops’
“The Fed, Treasury and FDIC are pulling out all the stops to stop any widespread systemic damage to the economy,” said Dana Johnson, chief economist for Comerica Inc. in Dallas and a former senior economist at the central bank. “The federal government is on the hook for an awful lot of money but I think it’s needed to help the financial system recover.”
Bloomberg News tabulated data from the Fed, Treasury and FDIC and interviewed regulators, economists and academic researchers to gauge the full extent of the government’s rescue effort.
Commitments may expand again soon. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner postponed until tomorrow an announcement that may invite private investment as a way to clear toxic debt from bank balance sheets. Measures that have been settled include a new round of injections of taxpayer funds into banks, targeted at those identified by regulators as most in need of additional capital, people briefed on the matter said.
Program Delay
The government is already backing $301 billion of Citigroup Inc. securities and another $118 billion from Bank of America. The government hasn’t yet paid out on any of the guarantees.
The Fed said Friday that it is delaying the start a $200 billion program called the Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility, or TALF, to revive the market for securities based on consumer loans such as credit-card, auto and student borrowings.
Most of the spending programs are run out of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, where Geithner served as president. He was sworn in as Treasury secretary on Jan. 26.
When Congress approved the TARP on Oct. 3, Fed Chairman Ben S. Bernanke and then Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson acknowledged the need for transparency and oversight. The Federal Reserve so far is refusing to disclose loan recipients or reveal the collateral they are taking in return. Collateral is an asset pledged by a borrower in the event a loan payment isn’t made.
Fed Sued
Bloomberg requested details of Fed lending under the Freedom of Information Act and filed a federal lawsuit against the central bank Nov. 7 seeking to force disclosure of borrower banks and their collateral. Arguments in the suit may be heard as soon as this month, according to the court docket. Bloomberg asked the Treasury in an FOIA request Jan. 28 for a detailed list of the securities it planned to guarantee for Citigroup and Bank of America. Bloomberg hasnE2t received a response to the request.
The Bloomberg lawsuit is Bloomberg LP v. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, 08-CV-9595, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York (Manhattan).

Boca Raton accountant jailed in first UBS tax fraud case
BY MARTHA BRANNIGAN
mbrannigan@MiamiHerald.com

Steven Michael Rubinstein of Boca Raton made an initial appearance Thursday in federal court in Fort Lauderdale on a criminal charge of using UBS Swiss bank accounts to conceal income from the Internal Revenue Service.
The case marks the first to be filed by federal prosecutors based on the UBS client records that were turned over by the Swiss banking giant under a deferred prosecution agreement reached with the United States in February.

Rubinstein, a chartered accountant who works for an international company that helps clients build, buy and sell yachts, was charged with filing a false income tax return. He was temporarily detained, pending a bond hearing set for Tuesday. His attorney couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

In a statement, U.S. Attorney R. Alexander Acosta in Miami said: “Today is the first of the prosecutions resulting from that disclosure, but it will not be the last. It is our duty to those who pay their legal share of taxes to ensure that others do not use offshore schemes to evade payment of their taxes.”

According to a criminal complaint, Rubinstein failed to disclose that he had an interest in UBS accounts in Switzerland and failed to report income earned from them.

U.S. citizens who have an interest in or control over an offshore bank account with more than $10,000 are required to say so on their income tax returns.

The government alleges Rubinstein was the beneficial owner of UBS accounts in the name of Hybridge International, Ltd., a sham company in the British Virgin Islands used to conceal his ownership.

According to the complaint, from 2001 through 2008, Rubinstein dealt with UBS bankers to buy and sell securities worth more than 4.5 million Swiss francs, or about $4 million; to convert investments from dollars to British pounds; and to deposit and transfer funds into and out of the UBS Swiss accounts.

Prosecutors assert he used the secret UBS accounts to repatriate about $3 million into the United States to buy property and build his home in Boca Raton.

The government also alleged that Rubinstein deposited and sold more than $2 million in South African Krugerrands through his UBS Swiss bank accounts.

In February, UBS entered into a deferred prosecution agreement in which the bank admitted to helping U.S. taxpayers hide accounts from the IRS. As part of its agreement, UBS, in a stunning blow to bank secrecy, agreed to provide the United States with the names and account information of some 250 to 300 U.S. customers.

UBS provided information on that group of clients to its Swiss banking authorities, who in turn determined the information could be released to the U.S. because under Swiss government guidelines, those clients appeared to have committed U.S. tax fraud.

However, the IRS is pressing forward in a civil suit against UBS to force the bank to disclose the identities of some 52,000 other U.S. customers with Swiss accounts at UBS totaling $14.8 billion. UBS has vowed to vigorously fight that broader effort
