Why is Nancy Pelosi pushing for abortion funding? The answer comes from her in a Jan 2008 interview on ABC’s ‘This Week with George Stephanopoulos’
Jan. 25, 2009

STEPHANOPOULOS: Hundreds of millions of dollars to expand family planning services. How is that stimulus?

PELOSI: Well, the family planning services reduce cost. They reduce cost. The states are in terrible fiscal budget crises now and part of what we do for children’s health, education and some of those elements are to help the states meet their financial needs. One of those – one of the initiatives you mentioned, the contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government.

STEPHANOPOULOS: So no apologies for that?

PELOSI: No apologies. No. we have to deal with the consequences of the downturn in our economy. Food stamps, unemployment insurance, some of the initiatives you just mentioned. what the economists have told us from right to left. There is more bang for the buck, a term they use, by investing in food stamps and in unemployment insurance than in any tax cut.

Nonetheless, we are committed to the tax cuts because they do have a positive impact on the economy even though not as big as the investments.

Wow – Nancy, right out of the eugenic Margaret Sanger handbook… it is no wonder how you got a cameo in the film: Maafa21 Black Genocide in 21st Century America which says there is a political conspiracy to wipe out the black population ! Good job, Pelosi !

Pelosi: 2009 “Democrats promise to Will Have Most Honest & Ethnical Congress”

C-SPAN Challenges Dems to Publicize Secret Health Bill Talks
Negotiations Resume Tuesday between Democrat leaders and White House – Republicans, Stupak Dems shut out
By Kathleen Gilbert

WASHINGTON, D.C., January 4, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – As Democrat leaders commence their final round of negotiations on the health care bill in secret meetings following the Christmas holiday, C-SPAN has issued a letter to the president and lawmakers challenging them to live up to their promises of transparency and allow the network to cover the proceedings.

“President Obama, Senate and House leaders, many of your rank-and-file members, and the nation’s editorial pages have all talked about the value of transparent discussions on reforming the nation’s health care system,” wrote C-SPAN’s Brian Lamb to congressional leaders in a letter dated December 30.

“Now that the process moves to the critical stage of reconciliation between the Chambers, we respectfully request that you allow the public full access, through television, to legislation that will affect the lives of every single American.”

House Minority Leader John Boehner responded promptly to C-SPAN’s letter, stating that “all House Republicans strongly endorse your proposal and stand ready to work with you to make it a reality.” Unfortunately, he said, “the President, Speaker Pelosi, and Senate Majority Leader Reid now intend to shut out the American people at the most critical hour by skipping a bipartisan conference committee and hammering out a final health care bill in secret.”

A handful of Democrat chamber and committee leaders today are meeting with the White House to hash out how to surmount the final hurdles facing the abortion-expanding health care legislation crafted separately in both House and Senate. Those versions, which pose significant differences on some contentious points, must be ironed out in a final version for President Obama to sign. Leaders hope to get the bill on the President’s desk by the State of the Union address – but previous deadlines on the bill have consistently slipped.

Instead of an even-handed merge, leaders are expected to expedite passage by sending the Senate health bill to the House, which will amend the bill and send it back to the Senate for approval.

The process, known as the “ping-pong” option, largely throws out the hard-won language contained only in the House version of the bill – including the Hyde amendment restriction on abortion funding. While pro-life and conservative leaders have heavily criticized the bill on a number of aspects, including its propensity to promote health care rationing and doctor-assisted suicide, the bill’s vast expansion of federal abortion funding has earned it the title of the greatest threat to the unborn in America since Roe v. Wade.

Such merging is usually conducted in full view in the chambers of Congress. Although skipping the formal committee meetings is not without precedent, critics are angry at Democrats for choosing the secretive route in the final round of the bill, which many consider the most significant social policy legislation in a generation.

Fueling the criticism are reports from lawmakers and aides who say Republican and conservative Democrat lawmakers have been entirely shut out of the negotiations. House Energy and Commerce Committee chairman Henry Waxman (D-CA) said leaders would skip the committee because motions to select and instruct conferees in the Senate “would need 60 votes all over again.”

“This process cuts out the Republicans,” said a House Democratic aide, according to a Talking Points Memo report, adding that Democrats intended to ensure the minority party would “not have a motion to recommit opportunity.”

Leading conservative Democrats such as Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) have confirmed that leadership has kept them away from the negotiating table as well. Stupak is the leader of a handful of conservative Democrats who have promised to vote against the bill if it does not contain Hyde-amendment restrictions on abortion funding.

After federal abortion funding became the top sticking point in both the House and Senate bills, it could remain the clearest block to the measure’s final passage if Stupak’s company holds strong.

Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) continues to face the after-effects reneging on his promise in December to filibuster the bill if it contained federal abortion funding: protesters with Rescue the Heartland and Operation Rescue braved a -9 degree wind chill on New Year’s Day to demonstrate outside the senator’s home.

The full House does not reconvene until next week, and the Senate will return in two weeks. Meanwhile, majority leaders in both chambers will meet with President Obama Tuesday evening to discuss the final bill, before a caucus meeting via conference call scheduled for Thursday.

The White House’s health reform campaign also continued in aggressive tones this week, reminding followers of its “reality check” series on health care to dismiss criticism of the bill.
“This isn’t fear-mongering based on some deceptive distortion as we so often hear from those opponents, it’s cold hard facts,” wrote Nancy Ann DeParle in a Tuesday post highlighting the negative aspects of the current health care situation.

A Washington Times editorial Tuesday blasted the Obama administration for the overtly furtive tactics propelling the sweeping health measure to the finish line.
“By now it’s almost trite to complain that President Obama repeatedly has broken his campaign pledge to ‘broadcast [health care] negotiations on C-SPAN so that the American people can see what the choices are.’ That doesn’t make the complaint invalid,” it notes.

“For legislation that could so profoundly and personally affect the daily lives of every American, Congress and the White House should be more transparent and more accessible than ever before. Instead, the process has been secretive and sordid throughout.

“Back in October, Rep. Vern Buchanan, Florida Republican, offered this simple resolution: ‘Resolved, that it is the sense of the House of Representatives that any conference committee or other meetings held to determine the final content of sweeping national health care legislation be held in full public view and not behind closed doors.’ If congressional leaders do not abide this simple request, Republicans should bring the whole Senate to a halt.”

Obama sued for secret meetings on Health Care Legislation

FROM: WorldNetDaily: Obama sued for secret abortion meetings
‘In haste to socialize medicine, president violated commitment to transparency’

December 21, 2009 By Bob Unruh

A legal firebrand whose work fighting corruption left both Bill Clinton and Dick Cheney on the defensive today took on Barack Obama, suing the president for secret meetings with Planned Parenthood and other lobbyists on his plans to nationalize health care.

Larry Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch and, more recently, Freedom Watch USA, filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., under the Federal Advisory Committee Act. The law requires disclosure of records of meetings between the executive branch and outside industry lobbyists. It also requires access to meetings.

Klayman raised the same issues during the early years of the Clinton administration, contributing to the demise of the health care proposal championed by Hillary Clinton.

The lawsuit charges that in Obama’s “haste to socialize medicine in the United States, and increase government control generally,” he has “violated his commitment to transparency.”

“It is widely known that President Obama and his surrogates have been holding behind closed door meetings with health care industry lobbyists, cutting deals to win passage of his health care legislation,” Klayman said.
Klayman contends the president’s conduct falls within the scope of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, which “requires the president to come clean on why he has caved in to the pharmaceutical industry, preventing the importation of prescription drugs that would lower prices for consumers, why he has become the lackey of Planned Parenthood in championing government financed abortions, and why the AMA (American Medical Association) and AARP (American Association of Retired Persons) are now his great friends.”

As WND reported, Klayman had returned to Washington, where his efforts to bring light to the Clinton administration made him a high-profile political figure that was parodied on television in the “West Wing” character Harry Klaypool.

Klayman said after his return he was stunned by the level of corruption in the nation’s capital, telling CNN’s Lou Dobbs, “I’ve never seen it like this.”
Klayman’s new case targets “the particulars behind the secret deals the White House has been cutting with private health care concerns, such as the AMA, Pharma, Planned Parenthood, AARP, and other lobbyists seeking to feed at the trough of the government.”

“Freedom Watch will not rest until the American people know all the facts about this historic and ill advised health care legislation, which most Americans – be they conservative, middle of the road or liberal – think we cannot afford and do not want as it is written,” he said.

Klayman said he hand-delivered just days ago a letter to Obama under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act and FACA seeking copies of all minutes and final decision documents.

New World Order : The Collapse of the US Dollar? Secret meetings to bring in new currency !

The demise of the dollar

In a graphic illustration of the new world order, Arab states have launched secret moves with China, Russia and France to stop using the US currency for oil trading

By Robert Fisk

In the most profound financial change in recent Middle East history, Gulf Arabs are planning – along with China, Russia, Japan and France – to end dollar dealings for oil, moving instead to a basket of currencies including the Japanese yen and Chinese yuan, the euro, gold and a new, unified currency planned for nations in the Gulf Co-operation Council, including Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait and Qatar.

Secret meetings have already been held by finance ministers and central bank governors in Russia, China, Japan and Brazil to work on the scheme, which will mean that oil will no longer be priced in dollars.

The plans, confirmed to The Independent by both Gulf Arab and Chinese banking sources in Hong Kong, may help to explain the sudden rise in gold prices, but it also augurs an extraordinary transition from dollar markets within nine years. ..

These plans will change the face of international financial transactions,” one Chinese banker said. “America and Britain must be very worried. You will know how worried by the thunder of denials this news will generate.”

US Treasury ‘overstated’ health of America’s biggest banks

UN calls for new reserve currency

The United Nations called on Tuesday for a new global reserve currency to end dollar supremacy which has allowed the United States the “privilege” of building a huge trade deficit.

Important progress in managing imbalances can be made by reducing the reserve currency country?s ‘privilege’ to run external deficits in order to provide international liquidity,” UN undersecretary-general for economic and social affairs, Sha Zukang, said.

Speaking at the annual meetings of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank in Istanbul, he said: “It is timely to emphasise that such a system also creates a more equitable method of sharing the seigniorage derived from providing global liquidity.

He said: “Greater use of a truly global reserve currency, such as the IMF?s special drawing rights (SDRs), enables the seigniorage gained to be deployed for development purposes,” he said.

The SDRs are the asset used in IMF transactions and are based on a basket of four currencies — the dollar, euro, yen and pound — which is calculated daily.

China had called in March for a new dominant world reserve currency instead of the dollar, in a system within the framework of the Washington-based IMF.

The US Treasury overstated the financial health of America’s nine largest banks last year when it invested $125bn into them, an internal investigation has found.

The nine banks forced to take part in the capital injection scheme included Citigroup and Bank of America, who, in spite of both receiving $25bn of TARP funds last October, both required a further injection of $20bn plus loan-loss guarantees to cover losses on toxic assets.

The October injections were however forced on to the banks in question by Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, telling reluctant chief executives including Goldman Sachs’ Lloyd Blankfein and JP Morgan Chase’s Jamie Dimon that not taking the money was not an option.

In his new report, Mr Barofsky highlights a number of public comments made by both Treasury and Fed officials last October about the health of the nine banks, saying that such “inaccurate statements” only serve to make the TARP more controversial than it has already proven to be.

Mr Barofsky said last month he thought it “highly unlikely” the Treasury will ever be able to recoup its full investment.
