So I see these three articles, and they all seem kind of connected. All this “apocalypse” (unveiling) business… quite amazing. So here’s the deal…
We have a “bunch of millionaires” (U.S. Congress) making decisions for us “non-millionaires” (so-called “ordinary” U.S. citizens), which includes potential legislation to turn the decision-making for us “non-millionaires” (so-called “ordinary” U.S. citizens) over to another country’s so-called “leaders”, while, when the NSA is asked by Senator Bernie Sanders (of that “bunch of millionaires U.S. Congress”), whether it spies on that “bunch of millionaires U.S. Congress”, tacitly admits that it does, since it spies on everybody (even us so-called “ordinary” U.S. citizens)!
What a wonderful circus we live in right now!
Most US lawmakers are millionaires: Report (PressTV)
Will US Senate crown Netanyahu emperor? (VT)“A new report has shown that more than half of lawmakers in US Congress are millionaires who had an average net worth of $1 million or more in 2012.
“A recent analysis of personal financial disclosure data by the Center for Responsive Politics shows that the number of millionaires on Capitol Hill has grown and at least 268 US lawmakers out of 534 current members of Congress are millionaires.
“The study also showed that Democrats and Republicans were about equally wealthy…
“Meanwhile, leaders of the House and Senate agriculture committees are set to announce a deal on a new multi-year farm bill that would cut $9 billion in funding for the food stamp program over the next ten years.
“They [Americans] view both parties, the Democrats and Republicans, as an expression of plutocratic rather than democratic power. So, the American people are looking for an alternative,” Becker told Press TV.”
The NSA, the Middle East, Bush’s anti-American legacy: The REAL weekly news! (VT)“A bill introduced in the US Senate by Chuck Schumer (D-NY), entitled the “Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act of 2013,” – now supported by 50 US Senators – formally turns over American war powers to the State of Israel and its Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.”
“The NSA surveillance program received considerable attention today, where Glenn Greenwald has indicated that Edward Snowden has much more to reveal, including information about NSA spying on Israel. The New York Times has now endorsed what Snowden has been doing, which is sensible since whistleblowers should be admired and revered for taking personal risks for the benefit of the public and the principles of the nation, which it all too often violates or ignores. Bernie Sanders has asked the NSA whether it spys on Congress, but the NSA has already implied as much–since it is spying on EVERYONE! It is distressing that Congress seems so slow to appreciate that it is in the cross-hairs of the NSA as much as anyone else–more, probably, because of its crucial role in the life of the nation. Rand Paul is launching a lawsuit against the NSA for its surveillance, which is a resourceful way to promote the public interest. He deserve [deserves] support.”
