No Tax Funding to Egypt, Libya.

7 399



Dear readers,

This past Tuesday, September 11, 2012, as our nation solemnly remembered the brutal Islamist attack on our nation eleven years ago, our U.S. Ambassador to Libya was assassinated and our embassy in Cairo was stormed by violent Islamists. Even though both countries have now spoken out against the attacks, their silence during the violence made them passively complicit in the abhorrent actions by their people. In particular, Egyptian President Morsi’s lengthy delay in condemning the attack on our embassy was completely unacceptable.

What was the “excuse” for the violence? A movie about the Prophet Mohammed.

Even worse, the initial response by our own nation to the Cairo attack was an apology by the U.S. Embassy. It read in part: “The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims—as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions.” (Note: We were going to include a link to the full original statement here, but it’s mysteriously no longer available!)

This is shameful. The American people know better, and so should those who speak for us.

In fact, the response by our embassy was SO appalling, that the White House was forced to issue a disavowal stating, “The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government.” See HERE for more on the issue.

It is CRITICAL that we speak with ONE VOICE to let the Administration and the U.S. Congress know that we will no longer tolerate sending our tax dollars to Egypt and Libya until this latest attack is addressed to the satisfaction of our nation and until the regimes in both countries can prove that they will not use the funds to further jihadist causes. Though the leaders have now condemned the attacks in their countries, we don’t find those responses to be strong enough or timely enough to warrant the gift of hard-earned taxpayer money.

Enough is enough!

These recent violent incidents are reminiscent of the 1979 Iranian attacks on our embassy, and of the Muslim violence resulting from Danish cartoonists’ depictions of Mohammed.

Further, the attacks in Egypt and Libya are taking place at the same time that Egyptian President (Muslim Brotherhood candidate), Mohammed Morsi is scheduled to arrive in the U.S. and meet with President Obama. They are occurring at the same time our own State Department is assisting efforts to curtail free speech through their participation in the Istanbul Process and U.N. Resolution 16/18 (more on that issue in future e-mails).

And of all dates—these most recent attacks on our embassies took place on September 11th. The symbolism couldn’t be any more blatant.

The important question, though, is this: What kind of response will come from the American citizenry? Will we be silent—or will we speak up?

A 1-minute phone call by you about this matter—magnified by 240,000 other ACT! for America activists will make a tremendous noise that the U.S. Congress will have NO OPTION but to hear. Will you join us?

Our federal leaders need to clearly understand that the American people will hold them accountable—especially at the voting booths this November—if they reward the reprehensible behavior within these two countries by giving them your hard-earned tax dollars.

 

We must say “NO.”

    10 Signs That You’re Fully Awake

    Isn’t it obvious that there is a significant global awakening happening? Just as the Mayans predicted so many years ago, the apocalypse would become apparent in 2012. But many misinterpret the apocalypse to be the end of the world, when in fact it actually means an “un-covering, a revelation of something hidden.”

    As many continue to argue the accuracy of the Mayan calendar, it can no longer be argued that a great many people are finally becoming aware of what has been hidden from them for so long. Of course this awakening is not an overnight process. It takes time to peel away the many layers of lies to get to the core of the ultimate truths.

    It would be beyond pretentious for us to claim to know all of the secrets of the universe. We don’t. Everyday we are humbled by what we don’t yet know.

    However, it is becoming clearer by the day what isn’t true. And by that measure alone, it is possible to determine if you’re one of the people beginning to wake up.

    Here are ten signs you may be fully awake:

    1. You know there’s no meaningful difference between major political parties (Democrats and Republicans): It’s so easy to get caught up the left-right debate and believe there’s a difference between the two major political parties. However, debate is one thing, while actions are another. By their deeds you shall know them, and it is indisputable that there is no significant difference between political parties when it comes to action on the most important issues. Even hardened ideologues like John Cusack are beginning to wake up.

    2. You understand that the Federal Reserve, or international central banking more broadly, is the engine of our economic problems: Debt slavery is the totalitarian force that threatens all of humanity, not some temporary political puppet or some greedy Wall Street trader. When a small group of people have the ability to create wealth out of nothing and charge interest on it, they have the ability to enslave the planet to their ownership despite what type of government a country claims to have.

    3. You know that preemptive war is never necessary: When we realize that self-defense is the only acceptable form of violence, then we become awakened human beings. To suggest war because someone is different from you, or they may pose a threat in the future is simply ludicrous. And when did the idea of bombing civilians become humanitarian? No one wants war except for the immoral creeps that benefit from it.

    4. You know that you’re being systematically poisoned, how, by whom, and why: Admittedly, there’s a lot to learn in terms of how we are secretly being poisoned. But the fact remains that we are being systematically poisoned, and it is likely for the deliberate purpose of dumbing us down and, ultimately, culling the population. Who could believe anyone is so evil to do that to innocent people, you may ask. Well, once you begin to seek the answer to that question, you’re one step closer to enlightenment.

    5. You understand that government can never legislate morality, nor should they: When you realize the role of government is only to protect your liberty and work for the well being of the citizens, you’re awakened. There should be one simple law regulating morality: Do no harm. Thus, it’s impossible for the government to enforce morality with guns, cages, and taxes because those clearly cause severe harm to your liberty and our well-being.

    6. You know that the mainstream media is wholly owned and manipulated by the ruling elite: A dwindling number of people still actually believe what they hear coming from the establishment media as if it’s gospel, even when they already accept that they are bought and paid for by the elite controllers. Yet, recognizing that they are nothing more than a propaganda machine and a form of mind control are the first steps in being able to critically think beyond the scientific messaging they broadcast.

    7. You know that your neighbors are not your enemy even if you have fierce ideological disagreements: This is perhaps the most difficult thing to overcome in the awakening process. But it’s vital to understand that your neighbors have been indoctrinated and hypnotized like the rest of the us, until someone helps shine a light on inconsistencies in our thoughts and beliefs. Most of their ideas are not their own. They are suffering just like the rest of us. It’s okay to condemn their actions if they’re harmful, but those who are awake will not give up on spreading information that can enlighten those who might still be in the dark. None of us were born “awake” and all of us can learn even more.

    8. You know that the endgame is one-world control of planet Earth: Once you understand that the endgame for the ruling elite is to have complete control of all vital facets of society through a global government, one-world currency, international armed forces, and so on, it is simple to see through the lies and propaganda surrounding even the most confusing world events. You will never go back to sleep when you fully accept this reality.

    9. You recognize that there are esoteric powers manipulating our physical world: Whether you’re a religious or spiritual person, scientific or just plain curious, there are many theories about an invisible force at play in all of this. Obviously it’s impossible to prove exactly what it is. You may not want to believe it, but the ruling elite takes their occult rituals deadly serious. And they likely know something we don’t. Just by keeping an open mind about this possibility, you’ll forever keep an open mind about the things we can actually see, hear, taste and touch. Current science has shown that we can only “see” what the visible light spectrum reveals, which amounts to the tiniest fraction of all that can theoretically be seen within the full spectrum of energy. Part of any awakening is realizing that there is much more that is possible than impossible.

    10. The power to change the world rests with you and you alone: For too long people have believed themselves to be weak, or relied on others to change the world for them. You’ll know that you’re fully awake when you realize that you have infinite power to change the world by simply living the change you want to see. First, you have to identify the principles that you believe in and then go out and live by them. If just a small minority took steps to do this, it would shake the establishment to its core.

    What kind of world do you want to live in?

    Cut off funding these countries now! What a shame that American tax dollars would continue to support these ungrateful enemies of our country! Stop tax dollar funding NOW!!!!!!!

  • fireant

    Send them Pig blood and Hides of Pigs instead. Those Americans that think we should give these protesting hate against America should not be given a warning nor a 2nd chance. 5 years no foreign aide period. You stamped, tore and burnt our American flag so you lose our support. Any American that does not support this should be given a boat ride with only the clothes on there backs to the Middle East and dropped off never to return, this includes any and all elected and non elected government employees.
