CAFTA: Ideology vs. National Interests (July 27, 2005) - Using the Clinton playbook for enacting NAFTA in ‘93, the White House is twisting arms and buying votes to win passage of the Central American Free Trade Agreement. And the seductive song the White House is singing sounds familiar. It is the NAFTA theme song. CAFTA will ease the social pressures that have produced waves of illegal aliens. CAFTA will increase U.S. exports. CAFTA will not cost U.S. jobs. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. If Tom DeLay’s caucus delivers 200 votes for CAFTA, economic patriots will begin to look outside the GOP for leadership. In 1993, Republicans, by four to one, signed on to NAFTA. They believed the promises that our $5 billion trade surplus with Mexico would grow and illegal immigration would diminish. They were deceived. The NAFTA skeptics were proven right. The U.S. trade surplus with Mexico vanished overnight. Last year, we ran a $50 billion trade deficit. Since 1993, 15 million illegal aliens have been caught breaking into the United States. Five million made it, and their soaring demands for social services have driven California to bankruptcy. As for Mexico’s major exports to us, they appear to be two: narcotics and Mexicans. more...


UFO sighting in Exeter - again Link Lost (July 28, 2005) - There was something odd in the sky last week, something that caused a Navy veteran with 10,000 hours of flight experience to have his own close encounter. The former flight engineer, who wished to be identified only as “David,” said of the experience, “this was like nothing I’ve ever seen before.” What the retired Navy chief petty officer said he saw last Wednesday could only be classified as a UFO, an unidentified flying object. It was a bright and sunny afternoon, about 3:15 p.m., and David was outside preparing his lawnmower. He had filled the mower with gas, checked the oil, and took a sip from a glass of water he had poured. When he tilted his head back to get the final sip, through the bottom of the glass he saw a large cigar-shaped object hovering in the sky. David said windows were equally spaced around the object, however he didn’t see anyone or anything inside. The size of the object was enormous. By comparison, he said, consider what an ultralight plane would look like next to a Boeing 747. He said it was about the size of two USS Nimitz aircraft carriers. At first glance, through his empty glass of water he thought it could have been the Hood blimp. “But, the instant I put my glass down, I said, ‘that’s not a blimp.’” The object moved from west to east, very slowly for something that size, he said. His initial instinct was that the object was moving at about 100 knots, but something that big shouldn’t be able to stay in the air if it’s going that slow, he said. The object began changing colors from a bright silver to an orange-ish red. A strange cloud of red and orange flames began surrounding the object, and before he knew it the object stretched out like a rubber band. It grew to about twice its original size, and then it was gone. more...


Prophetic Message From Merla Watson (July 28, 2005) - I have a very deep heaviness and dread today. Suddenly I woke up with it around 3 a.m. and could not get back to sleep. There is something in the realm of the spirit that is about to happen, and my whole being is ON GUARD! I’m holding my breath. more...


Experts troubled by China arms buildup (July 28, 2005) - Experts told a congressional panel that China’s weapons buildup poses a major challenge to the United States and its Asian allies, despite administration assurances that Beijing is not considered a threat. The Republican chairman of the House of Representatives Armed Services Committee, Duncan Hunter, said he called the hearing on China’s growing military might as US lawmakers increasingly become concerned about Beijing’s intentions. “We’re holding this hearing because we’ve all noticed some disturbing trends in the Pacific over the last decade,” he said, noting that “since the early 1990s China’s military spending has grown faster than its economy.” “Naturally, we have to ask ourselves who China expects to use all these weapons against,” Hunter said. Experts who testified at the hearing underscored the potential risk from China’s military prowess. more...
