Thanks for sending your letters. We have heard back from many that the shock of just one week in congress has spurred you to action. You have been sending letters and passing on the article "Judas" we published last week.
We wanted to create a version of the article as a letter to the editor, nearly-ready to send, that could fit in the two-hundred-fifty-word limit of many papers but still cover the basic details (and give Loyal9 a public boost). Please alter as necessary to apply to your area and get your letter published in the papers. I will be sending to my local papers in St George, UT. We must wake people up.
To the Editor:
Congress just passed three of the most outrageous bills of the decade -- in one week. EVERY Utah Congressman and Sen. Hatch voted for these or stayed off the record.
1) December 9: Senate approved virtually unlimited access to the communications of every American, without court order. This is done without putting bill on public calendar and without recording the vote. In house, Stewart, Chaffetz, and rest voted yes.
2) December 10: House budget bill includes passage guaranteeing banks' bets (five biggest banks each have over 40 trillion dollars exposure). Now, banks’ risky bets are bailed out ahead of time. Heads, they win. Tails, tax payers lose.
3) The same night, after the budget vote, the house conveniently never adjourned their session. Constitution tracker Loyal9.org documents that three Reps stayed behind, and in less than one minute, those three passed major actions on Russian sanctions, perhaps the most precarious issue of our time. The bill implements tariffs, company-specific bans (that benefit specific US corporations), billions of dollars in weapons, and proactive permission to the president to escalate aggression. The senate ratified it two days later -- again without announcing it on the calendar, again without debate, again without a roll call vote. Although the Utah house members were not present, silence after the fact connotes complicity.
These three actions, and the secrecy in the process, make it clear to even the most trusting, that our country is in grave danger, and the risk is greatest from our own elected officials.
The hour is grave because of what we have forgotten.
And now there are two (er, three?). Did it matter which? After watching the debates, it seems being AGAINST Liberty is now a campaign technique. And the winners are . . . (not the Bill of Rights).
Target date is 2030
Take a failed issue. Give it a righteous new name. Get people begging for government salvation. Ram the details through in secrecy. Paranoid indeed.
A must read: on the surface it is about the people who work behind the scenes for Trump. More deeply, it is an expose on the way the world really works. How are we brought to believe what we believe?

How do banks keep fees high and rates they pay low despite "Competition"? They're all owned by the same people.
