International Bailout Brings Us Closer to Economic Collapse By Ron Paul




Last week Congress passed the war supplemental appropriations bill. In an affront to all those who thought they voted for a peace candidate, the current president will be sending another $106 billion we don’t have to continue the bloodshed in Afghanistan and Iraq, without a hint of a plan to bring our troops home.


As Americans struggle through the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression, this emergency supplemental appropriations bill sends $660 million to Gaza, $555 million to Israel, $310 million to Egypt, $300 million to Jordan, and $420 million to Mexico. Some $889 million will be sent to the United Nations for so-called "peacekeeping" missions. Almost one billion dollars will be sent overseas to address the global financial crisis outside our borders. Nearly $8 billion will be spent to address a "potential pandemic flu" which could result in mandatory vaccinations for no discernable reason other than to enrich the Pharmaceutical companies that make the vaccine.


Perhaps most outrageous is the $108 billion loan guarantee to the International Monetary Fund. These new loan guarantees will allow that destructive organization to continue spending taxpayer money to prop up corrupt leaders and promote harmful economic policies overseas.

What the hell are we doing? Why are we sending millions of dollars to all of these countries?

We are loaning 108 billion dollars to the IMF? WTF!

We don't have the money! Americans are losing their jobs and we are sending money out of the country?

I swear they have no damn idea what they are doing, or they just don't give a crap about american taxpayers and workers.

The government spending money uncontrollably, nothing new.

Hopefully we can make it to 2010 because the Dem's will get tossed out on their butts. If they don't the streets might end up looking like they do over in Iran.

I've taken a look at a few polls and even though democratic support for Obama is at 92% his approval rating keeps dropping, not only that but the Country on the right track question shows it as we are not on the right track.

I think the left in this country is about to find out how out numbered and insignificant they really are. It has just been the complacency of well intentioned people not paying attention to how out of control this government has gotten. Well not so much anymore.

People are sick of the fiscal irresponsibility of both parties and its going to change. We just have to make it that far first.

Every President for the last 20 years aka Clinton, Bush, and now Obama and even further back have been elitist hyperglobalists. Why does any of this surprise any of you? The goal of the deep state i.e. the elite bankers that run the world is complete destruction of the American economy and middle class in order to usher in a one world government and one world monetary system. This has been going on for decades. Obama was not voted into office by the people. He was voted into office by the powers that be. He's a lackey a puppet if you will. It's time Americans rise up and take back their country. By force if need be. If the American public does not elect a President like Ron Paul or someone with similar foresight and policy we are doomed. And we as a country need to become more unified. Like Washington said our two party system will destroy us. It is. Liberal this, neocon that, right this left that. It's crazy. We are so divided we fail to see dems and repubs are different sides of the same damn coin. We need third, fourth, fifth party representation if necessary.

I will support the money to

$660 million to Gaza
$555 million to Israel
$310 million to Egypt
$300 million to Jordan
$420 million to Mexico

way before I support $889 million to the UN and $108 billion to the IMF

Heck I'd rather give each of the countries listed $ 1 billion before I give a dime to the IMF or the UN

Got to love that Ron Paul...consistent as ever, and nerves of steel!
After all, who else do we see who stands up to these banksters?

The role the IMF has in all of this could become more obvious, they have been lurking for a long time. More people are beginning to be aware of the shifts in power that will undermine the sovereignty of the U.S.

Handing the Fed more power will eventually lead to more integration with the "basket currency" awaiting the world through the IMF, the BIS (Bank of International Settlements) and the World Bank.

That may be the last step, and who knows how far off that is? We may be staring at an integration with the E.U. first...

But now matter how the show goes on...what these shadowy banksters have planned is nothing short of terrorism.

Starred & Flagged!

These kind of stories seem to be common place and it is a shame. It is madness to be sending that kind of money over seas when our infrastructure is crumbling, states are near default, jobless figures increasing daily, and the list goes on . . . When are they just going to stop disrespecting us and start making us number one and actually truly listen to our concerns rather than giving us the deaf ears. Now is the best time as ever to have and maintain a conservative fiscal financial policy, and that isn't Republican or Democrat talk there; it is reality.

Our legislatures need to screw their heads on straight and start doing their jobs. I despise their lock-step attitude toward legislation from the Executive Branch. They are supposed to be one of the check-and-balances of government, and if they aren't going to be a little more objective to these policies --- what the hell do we need them for? They might as well pack and go home because they are wastes of space in government.

Don't worry guys, it'll all be over soon. I don't think that the system can take much more of this.

It is so shameful that while America is going tits up, the politicians decide to send our dwindling resources to other countries and to international banks.

Take care of yourselves and your families first. You guys know just as well as I do what is coming, the only question is when.

Does anyone rememebr back in 1994?1995? in the news..it was a quetion, why the government spent $400 on a hammer? A HAMMER!!!! as in nails + hammer... I can get a cheap one at most sotres for less than $12....and do professional use with it. I wonder how much a toilet costs for the fed, as opposed to a absic one that works well form yuor local home depot for $80 and up???
I dont like this globla communtiy garbage thats being pushed and taught to us, at leat since bout 1992..thats when i started seeing many tv commercials, AT+T, mutual funds, ect ect, all saying the same thing..to bring us all togther. I always questioned WHY would any human wanna do that? That would leave our boarders unprotected and open, and rather seems to state thiers no real reason to have a military at all.
I think..this global community wa conjured up..they found a way to 10 ten fold thier capitol in terms of money, and making the world a safe and clean place to live, the arrogence of, becasue they might feel personaly inconieninced if it wasnt...rather narrow minded thining would you think? Selfish too. Its like its one big distraction, so some of the flock, be it thhe buildrbergs, the FED, other countrys in on it too, can keep goign to the bank, and leave us behind devastated and destroyed in the long run..short run, now that things have sped up. For sure, we are becoming a 3rd world country, the writting is on the wall....

Has anyone ever watched the adventures of Barron Munchousen? came out i 1988..I LOVE LOVE tha movie! In the movie, their trapped behind city walls, and the local governor wont open the gates, claiming the TURKS(the enemy) are outside and will kill them all. In reality( in the movie) the king TURK and the governor were playng chess together, and dealing out this week, whos side will win, and who will loose...
Call me crazy lol but thi is JUST how it seems teh US is doing things here...keeping us down and closing our boarders, meanwhile behind our backs, they are having luxurious dinners and escort services with other countrys, dealing and plotting it all out like it was a board game, amongst eachother.

What I think I'm failing to understand (as the case with many others I'd imagine) is why the US government finds it more important to ship hundreds of billions of dollars overseas in the economic climate we're currently experiencing.

I don't know about the rest of you, but America is going to heck in a hand basket. There is NEVER any good news, especially financial news, and maybe it's just people stuck in their daily routines, but it seems like no one cares either. Why do people not care about the worst economy in 70 - 80 years? Does everyone think everything is going to eventually "work itself out" and be hunky dory anytime now?

I can't understand anymore, why we're letting our government push us deeper and deeper into the hole. People make remarks about how this is going to end up like it is in Iran, and while I don't share their views directly in terms of violence and protesting, we're on that course.

What the hell are we doing giving $108 billion to the IMF for?!? We can afford to give them that money, but not invest it into programs or initiatives to help the country get back on its feet again?

Watch, very much sooner than later the SHTF and we're all gonna be in one big boiling pot full of debt and unsuccessfully run government ideas.

Democrat / Republican

None of it matters.

THE agenda will continue to be implemented at your expense.

Democracy is nothing more than a control mechanism to make the population believe they have a voice.

Why care about a few millions or billions...
Care more about the trillions which you guys apparently lost to the fed?
This is peanuts compared to it and probably won't be responsible for the collapse.

We can handle the expense, but not when swine flu mutates. The problem with what we are doing means there is NO room for error. So when swine flu hits and kills around 40 million Americans we won't have a hope in hell to survive. Now had we still had the trillions from our war machine we could get through it, but nope..

Not enough people care and most people won't care until it directly effects them. When more people are forced out of work and struggle to feed their families then they will care. Unfortunatly is may be too late by the time the majority realizes what is happening.

The MSM will keep telling everyone that the worst is over right up to the end. One day the hammer will drop and the economy will collapse. The sheep will be left puzzled as to what happened.

It will be up to us to stick together when it all goes down. We can't let chaos rule and we must help each other if we are to survive.

The majority of Americans deserve the coming economic chaos as punishment for their political apathy and for voting for Obama or McCain instead of 3rd party and independent candidates. A hidden criminal syndicate controls their government and most of them do not know/care, and because Americans have not yet revolted against the evil that controls them, is it wrong to say that they deserve all the false-flag attacks past and future?

I doubt when the dems get "tossed out", that spending will decrease. That's nonsense. The republicans waste just as much money, if not more, than the democrats.

Its absolutely sickening that at a time like this our leaders are shipping truckloads of money abroad, shows how little they actually care about the people they are supposed to be serving. In all honestly they probably should face treason charges with the goal of being sentenced to the harshest legal punishment possible for said crime.

Basically all our taxes , the missing gold , the lost trillions and war has put us so far in debt that theres no way we will ever eradicate this deficit. It is done sign sealed and delivered. Learn chinese guys its the only way. China will be given "territories" within the US. THERES VIRTUALLY NO ONE ELSE TO INVADE PEOPLE! Our days of raping countries is almost at an end and when that time comes China will see there is no way we can buy back our debt and the US will have no choice but to allow China be a roommate. Is that really that difficult to see? Yea maybe now I can actually enjoy Chinese food. Not sure about General Tso's Sweet N Sour Puppy though.
