SPECIAL "CLOSED SESSION" OF U.S. HOUSE OF
REPRESENTATIVES DISCUSSED A LOT MORE THAN
THE PENDING SECURITY SURVEILLANCE PROVISIONS!

This was only the fourth time in 176 years that Congress
has closed its doors to the public. What was it that they
were discussing that they do NOT want us to know about?

Word has begun leaking from last nights special, closed-door session of the United States House of Representatives.

Not only did members discuss new surveillance provisions as
was the publicly stated reason for the closed door session, they also discussed:

1. the imminent collapse of the U.S. economy to occur by September 2008,

2. the imminent collapse of US federal government finances
by February 2009,

3. the possibility of Civil War inside the USA as a result of
the collapse,

4. advance round-ups of "insurgent U.S. citizens" likely to move against the government,

5. the detention of those rounded-up at "REX 84" camps constructed throughout the USA,

6. the possibility of retaliation against members of Congress for the collapses,

7. the location of "safe facilities" for members of Congress and their families to reside during expected massive civil unrest,

8. the necessary and unavoidable merger of the United States with Canada (for its natural resources) and with Mexico (for its cheap labor pool),

9. the issuance of a new currency - THE AMERO - for all three nations as the proposed solution to the coming economic armageddon.

Members of Congress were FORBIDDEN to reveal what was discussed. Several are so furious and concerned about the future of the country, they have begun leaking info. More details coming later today and over the weekend. SPREAD THE WORD!!!

They DID close the House doors into a "closed" session, but I HIGHLY doubt that the rest of what the OP posted is true. There would be classified elements of or surrounding the surveillance bill that should not be released to public record, but needs to be shared with the larger body than a specific committee, so they go to a closed session to discuss that particular bill. Not all members of Congress have the same Security Clearances.

I'd file this under an April Fools Joke that isn't funny.

8. Umm NAFTA

9. neat play on words like the euro..... but refer to answer #8


8 and 9 are references to the NAU, which is really in the works. I think that a scenario similar to this is something worth watching for, look at how bad the economy is, then look at the "solutions" and tell me that their is no possibility that someone is up to something dirty. If you trim the fat from the NAU conspiracy (the Rockefellers having planned it decades ago, etc.) and set it against the current economy solutions, giving the fed oversight over itself, throwing money with no backing into the system through the stimulus checks, etc, it is not to far a reach to predict that the North American Union will be pitched as our savior. If that were to happen the united States would lose its sovereignty, I would hope that it would be enough to wake people up and make #3 a possibility.

Y2K was a great hoax.

Actually, we had two systems pop at Boeing where I worked, when Y2K rolled around. Both machines were overlooked, because frankly no one was bothering to support them because the manufacturing floor didn't say anything. Not that we could of done much about it. To fix them, we rolled back one machine that ran a laser cutter to 1990, and the other, we found the company that made the software and got a patch from them and patched it.

Let see, we had 800,000 lines of code changed, on over 3000 different programs if I remember correctly. They told us this little fact a month before Y2K and thanked us for our efforts over the last 2 years fixing the problem. That number represents a huge effort on the part of our IT departments throughout the company. Fixes were on Mainframes, VAX machines, and Unix servers, sometimes even clients, and PC's. It was huge.

This type effort was on going all over the country for banks, government, and corporations of every flavor. Where it mattered it was being fixed. Everywhere else it probably just got a date roll back like above. Big deal.

A lot of PC's could handle the 2000 date, but would pop a few years out from that date, because of some strange algorithm that was being used to create the date. IIRC Windows was that way software wise. Also IIRC BIOS updates on some PC's had to be updated because they couldn't handle the date change. It depended on how old your machines were.

It was most likely the wire tap issue, since it was closed door they can all vote however they personally feel, despite what there constituents demand, without having to worry about ti being thrown in their face during he next election. Or, they could just be using a hot button issue to throw people off from the truly dastardly issue they were actually addressing.

Commodities Rise Most in 2 Weeks; Oil, Fuel, Corn Hit Records

By Millie Munshi

April 9 (Bloomberg) -- Commodities jumped the most in two weeks as crude oil, gasoline and corn surged to records following U.S. government reports signaling demand for energy and grain is still outpacing supplies.

The UBS Bloomberg Constant Maturity Index of 26 commodities rose 2.7 percent to 1,519.18, marking the biggest increase since March 25. The gauge reached a record 1,573.84 on Feb. 29 and is posting gains for a seventh year.

Rising food and fuel costs have triggered protests in countries around the world. Crude oil jumped as high as $112.21 a barrel today as a Department of Energy report showed petroleum inventories unexpectedly fell last week. Corn rose to a record $6.16 a bushel as stockpiles dropped more than anticipated.

``Supplies for a lot of different commodities are dwindling as demand has gained globally,'' said Michael Pento, a senior market strategist at Delta Global Advisors in Huntington Beach, California, which manages about $1.5 billion. ``I'm bullish on all commodities.''

Protests may spread as falling supplies caused by crop failures and greater use of grains for biofuels stoke inflation globally, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization said today. The World Bank says 33 countries from Mexico to Yemen may face social unrest because of surging food prices.

``We have seen riots around the world, and there's risk that these will spread because of rising prices in countries where 50 percent to 60 percent of incomes go to foods,'' FAO Director General Jacques Diouf said in New Delhi today. ``The problem is serious.''

Rice, Wheat Double

Rice and wheat prices have doubled in the past year. Global food prices jumped 57 percent in March, according to the FOA. Higher energy prices also will stoke inflation, analysts said.

``Demand around the world is not slowing down,'' said Zachary Oxman, a senior trader at Wisdom Financial Inc. in Newport Beach, California. ``The world has proven that even with a slowdown in the U.S., there's still a huge demand for all commodities.''

Commodities also climbed as the dollar slumped, sparking demand for raw materials as a hedge against inflation.

The UBS Bloomberg index has surged 19 percent this year as the dollar dropped 6.4 percent against a weighted basket of the euro, yen, pound and three other major currencies.

The Standard & Poor's 500 Index fell as much as 1 percent today. The equity gauge is down 7.8 percent this year.

``People are still buying commodities in a flight to quality in this inflationary environment,'' Oxman said. ``What do you do when you want to protect your assets from inflation? You buy commodities. Prices will keep going higher from here.''

Dollar's Slump

Consumer prices in the U.S. climbed 4.1 percent last year, the fastest pace since 1990. The Federal Reserve's six interest- rate cuts since September will continue to depress the dollar and spur inflation, Pento of Delta Global Advisors said.

The UBS Bloomberg index rose 13 percent in the first quarter following a six-year rally. Demand in China, the world's fastest-growing major economy, helped trigger the surge.

Gasoline futures, which reflect wholesale costs, rose to a record $2.8228 a gallon. Copper futures closed at $4 a pound, the highest settlement price ever. Gold and silver rose more than 2 percent.

Natural gas topped $10 per million British thermal units and is up 34 percent this year. Rice yesterday jumped to the highest ever, and soybeans rose to a record last month.

Global investments in raw materials rose by more than a fifth in the first quarter to $400 billion, Citigroup Inc. said on April 7. A ``tidal wave of investment flows into commodity markets has further boosted prices,'' the bank said.

NO its pretty self explanatory. With things I read in Google news and other non main stream news sources its spelled out pretty clear at least for those that can read between the lines.

IMO we are headed fast into a financial / economic collapse and once this happens completely we will have the good old Problem / Reaction / Solution go into play.

We can already see the problem as its right before us.

The reaction is the public asking government to do something about it.

And the solution is the new money called the AMERO.

You may think I'm kidding but I'm not.

Since the gun control agenda didn't work as they had planned they will get us with the Monetary system.

Your Legal Tender FIAT Currency will be worth zip by the end of the year IMO. Or at least 50% of their current value which BTW is 4 cents of the value of the 1933 Dollar.

When the change comes just like the EURO did for the EU it will be swift and costly to your wallet, It will come like a thief in the night and your heads will be spinning from the change.

Lets see, the former USSR finally went bankrupt because of its socioeconomic polices. I said at the time the USA was about 25 years behind and I still feel that is the case. Just look at the sub-prime mess in Congress, the State of Nanny. Did the former USSR, fall into civil chaos NO, are we NO.

But we will go through economic hard times, no doubt about it. We are the largest consumer of oil in the world and until we break free of the politics that prevents free enterprise from deploying Gen IV Pebble Bed Nuclear Reactors for electrical and hydrogen generation, Solar arrays on our homes and other technologies that will ween us off of 100 year-old obsolete energy forms, we are doomed to economic weakness. We also have to control immigration, get real about the size of our cities, sustainable for the amount of water, sewer and refuse resources available. Face the big fact that everyone cannot live in America. Our Habitat only supports X number of people, period.

We will be on a roller coaster ride thats all. Conspiracy sells books.

Newer news? From MSN today:

ROME - Even with bigger crops, soaring food prices that have sparked unrest across the globe are likely to persist, threatening millions of people worldwide, a U.N. agency said Friday.

Prices of bread, rice, milk, cooking oil and other basic foodstuffs have sharply increased in the past months in many developing countries, according to a report by the Rome-based Food and Agriculture Organization. Prices of wheat and rice have doubled compared to last year, while those of corn are more than a third higher.

Grain prices have risen as a result of steady demand, especially from China and India, supply shortages and new export restrictions, FAO said.
Even though world grain production is expected to increase this year by 2.6 percent to a record 2.16 billion tons, experts say this is going to have little impact on the prices.

“All indications we have is that this is not a short-term effect ... where the first year you have price increases and the following year there is an increase of supply that brings the prices down,” FAO Director-General Jacques Diouf said at a news conference.

Experts say price speculation and market failures will likely reduce the effect of boosted production.
However, the “Crop Prospects and Food Situation” report says that expected growth in production, especially in wheat and rice, could at least ease the tight supply situation worldwide.

FAO said that farmers in developing countries should be granted better access to fertilizers, seeds and animal feed to increase local food production.
Surging food prices, further stoked by rising fuel costs, have triggered protests around the world in recent days. The increases hit poor people hardest, as food represents as much as 60-80 percent of consumer spending in developing nations, compared to about 10-20 percent in industrialized countries, the U.N. agency said.

One person was killed in two days of rioting in Egypt earlier this week, while violence wracked Haiti, where demonstrations over rising food prices led to looting and clashes with police.

In Pakistan and Thailand, troops have been deployed to avoid seizing of food from fields and warehouses, the agency said.
“People are dying because of their reaction to the situation. People will not be sitting dying of starvation, they will react,” Diouf said.

Good thing a few years ago some brave FFLs starting bringing OLL to California to kick off the OLL craze. Good thing I bought and built enough OLL-15s from CWS for each adult member of my family to have 2 (back up and spare parts you know). Good thing I took them to the range and taught them how to shoot and reload. And finally, good thing I just bought another 2000 rounds of M193!
