The God-Consciousness of Tom Sings the Beatles

http://www.edgarcayce.org/ps2/mysticism_god_conscousness.html

Our Genesis

In the beginning God creates us in Its own image, “Let us make man [adam] in our image, after our likeness…. So God created man [adam] in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”Gen. 1:26-27 In this verse the Hebrew word for man is “adam.” This word is often translated as “reddish” or “ruddy,” but it also means “persons” or “people” collectively, and can mean an “indefinite someone.” It is important to note in this verse that adam is male and female in one, androgynous. It is not until later when the “Lord God” creates adam “out of the dust of the earth,” in other words, in the flesh, that these parts are separated. When this occurs, the name “adam” takes on the meaning we most commonly associate with this word, “ruddy” or “red,” resulting from the blood in flesh.

It is important to realize that adam was first made in the image of God, which we know is not flesh, but spirit, female and male in oneness, unconscious and conscious united. Then, symbolized by the changing of the name of the creator from “God” to “Lord God” and, subsequently, to simply “Lord,” we see the descent from direct God-consciousness to self-consciousness (“God” is the name in Chapter 1 of Genesis, “Lord God” begins in Chapter 2 and carries on until the name is changed to “Lord” in Chapter 4.). This is the descent from pure spirit to spiritualized flesh to disconnected flesh, at which time death takes hold. Understanding this helps us breakthrough to the original consciousness and condition.

Another important point about this creation is that it is a group creation, not just the creation of one famous person. “Adam” at this stage of the creation is referring to an original group of souls created by God in God’s image, and subsequently made in spiritualized flesh by the Lord God, then into mortal flesh by the Lord. According to the Cayce readings, the souls, those godlings within the One God, entered the earth in five places, five nations, five races; in one they were called “Adam,” and this is the story of those souls, (#900-227, 364-9 & -13).

At this point in Genesis, God has created everything in thought, in the mind of God, but not physically — all existed in God’s consciousness. This is symbolized in the passage that comes after the seven days of creation: “Now no shrub of the field was yet in the earth [physically], and no plant of the field had yet sprouted, for the Lord God [note the name change] had not sent rain upon the earth; and there was no man [in flesh] to cultivate the ground” (Gen. 2:4-15). Yet, we know the heaven, earth and Adam had been created. The author is trying to convey to us that they had been created only in the mind of God not in form.

The original creation occurred in God’s infinite consciousness. This was our natural home before entering the flesh. It is what is spoken of in Jesus’ prayer to God, “And now, glorify Thou me together with Thyself, Father, with the glory which I had with Thee before the world was” (John 17:5). And it is that realm spoken of when Jesus says to us, “I go to prepare a place for you … that where I am there you may be also. And you know the way where I am going” ( John 14:2-4). Now, like many of us who are so much into physical consciousness, the disciple Thomas challenges this statement, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How do we know the way?” But we do know the way. Deep within us is our true nature. Deep within us we remember the original home, and we know the way. Each of us was there in the beginning. Each of us was originally created in the image and likeness of God. Within us that original nature lives and intuitively knows its way home. As Jesus said, “No one ascend to heaven but he who has already descended from it, even the Son of Man.”

John Van Auken helps to shed the light on the most complicated concepts in Kabbalah and similarities found in the Cayce readings in this latest book, Edgar Cayce and the Kabbalah. Here he talks about why he wrote the book, what he found when studying the Kabbalah, and what has been the most important spiritual lesson in his own life.

    GOP Senate hopeful Carly Fiorina is scheduled to be at the event as well as a representative of Irvine Assemblyman Chuck DeVore. The third Republicans in the Senate race, Tom Campbell, was invited as well but his schedule wouldn’t allow him to come, Melson said. Fiorina spokeswoman Amy Thoma said they just learned Tuesday that Taitz had been invited. “Obviously Carly disagrees with President Obama on a number of issues but she believes he is a legitimately elected president and a natural born citizen,’’  Thoma said. Had Taitz not been disinvited for Thursday’s event, “it would have changed the conversation,’’ Thoma said, in terms of whether Fiorina would still have attended.

    Freeper argues eligibility issue not a winner

  7. sisterrosetta Says:

    To: thisisthetime So many of the posts here that I see seem to be unable to grasp the message. I’m not saying that it is not a constitutional issue, I am not alleging that it is not serious, that was made very clear in the article if you took the time to read it in its entirety and not just the excerpt. I could care less about what liberals have to say about the issue and that is not the reason i suggest that they drop it. I only believe that their resources could be better expended on fighting Obama’s radical agenda — including efforts to repeal the healthcare bill, to make sure that cap and trade nor the EPA enforce their insane carbon laws. To make sure that spending goes down and their is an effort to reduce the budget, to make sure that the Fed is audited, to make sure that state’s rights are protected. To ensure that taxation does not reach a level to where it causes a huge detriment to the economy. These things are within the power of the people and the representatives to change. It is my opinion that Obama is a one term President and has no chance of being elected to a second term so I am not concerned with the issue as far as him being re-elected. And as for the individual that insinuated that I am not a Republican (if I took that the wrong way forgive me) well I certainly am registered as one but I believe that the majority of Republicans are shameful representatives of this country. Less shameful then the Democrats of course, but as for me I identify myself as a conservative and so slave to the orders of any such party. The point of the article is that in my opinion there is legitimacy to there articles about his birth certificate, in my opinion it seems that the evidence points toward him not being eligible to be President. But it wont be repealed, he will not be thrown from office and if you think that there is a chance that he will be you are incredibly naive. Now if WND’s efforts result in the requirement that future candidates be vetted and made sure that they meet the requirements that is a victory, but as far as I can tell WND has clearly already made their point as many of you are so already aware of and the continuance of such articles seems to be repetitive at best. The ultimate point I am making is that I think as citizens we should be more concerned with fighting the policies of which the administration is trying to force down our throats, more concerned with the Republicans taking back Congress. The lawsuits will go nowhere, and as I asserted earlier even if it did come to a point where Obama was forced to reveal his “true” birth certificate (Which it will never come to that) Do you not think that the Federal Government is not capable of making sure that an official document is presented? (although it would be technically fake) Months ago Michael Savage made this point on his show — if they had to the powers that be would be able to construct a document “proving” he was a natural born citizen. Also to those who doubt my allegiance to the conservative cause, view my website if you want see if it construes a liberal or conservative message. I am confident you will find that it is quite a right leaning site. I just think it is more important to expend energy on fighting what we can control and that is the policies that are trying to be put forth by this radical regime in Washington. 61 posted on 04/14/2010 2:28:09 PM PDT by thisisthetime

I encourage all of you to send her an email kelly@foxnews.com or send her a Tweet @MegynKelly Jeanhttp://www.wethepeopleusa.ning.com _________________ Megyn, Please provide fair and balanced coverage regarding LTC Lakin. Please do not trash people “birthers” who are asking legitimate questions. “Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclination, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.”- John Adams LTC Lakin is an honorable man and needs to be treated as such. He is standing up for what he believes. He believes in the oath that he took to defend his Country from enemies both foreign and domestic. His oath is to protect and defend the Constitution, as such, believes no man is “above the law” including the President. Instead of questioning LTC Lakin’s motives, I would hope that you question Mr. Obama’s. Why would a sitting President who has nothing to hide go to such great lengths, spending millions, to refrain from providing basic documents that prove his eligibility for office? I would also hope that your focus is NOT primarily on Mr. Obama’s elusive birth certificate. Mr. Obama, by his own admission stated that he was born with DUAL citizenship Kenya-British (Barack Obama Sr.) and USA (Stanley Ann Dunham). He was also a citizen of Indonesia when he was adopted by his step father Lolo Soetoro. How can a person with DUAL citizenship, who has allegiances to counties other than the USA be a Natural Born Citizen? NBC=Two Citizen ParentS and Born on US Soil. You see, it doesn’t matter if Barack Obama was born in Kenya or Hawaii, his Dual Citizenship disqualifies him for POTUS. This should be your focus Megyn, please don’t disappoint! … Visit We The People USA at: http://wethepeopleusa.ning.com/?xg_source=msg_mes_network

    WASHINGTON – Senator Scott Brown is meeting today with Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, an indication that the Obama administration sees the Massachusetts Republican as someone who could be convinced to vote for the bill. Brown yesterday said he would vote against the financial overhaul bill that Democrats are currently pushing as a way to curb the practices that contributed to the 2008 economic meltdown. And while he left open the possibility that he could sign onto a compromise, he had pointed criticism for the administration.Geithner coming to meet with Brown is also an indication of the administration’s push on the issue. Other likely targets are several New England Republicans, including Judd Gregg, of New Hampshire, and Susan Collins, Olympia Snowe, both of Maine.Matt Viser can be reached at maviser@globe.com.

    “Lakin reported to the commander, Medical Center Brigade, Walter Reed Army Medical Center, on Monday, 12 April, after failing to report for duty at Fort Campbell, Ky.,” a statement sent by Dasey to WND today said.

    “Lakin will be assigned to duty at Walter Reed pending investigation.”

    Altho I’m not a birther per se, you have to wonder why Michelle O referred to Kenya as his home.

    John McCain’s parents were American citizens and it is my understanding a person can be born anywhere and be an American citizen

    In the ’60s, Congress passed a law that states could tax a GI on his salary.

    My state did, Hawaii, where I was stationed at the time said, basically, never in hell.

    I went to the orderly room, signed my name on a printout of everybody’s name in my squadron and my “home of records”was changed to HI.

    My brother in law, a jarhead, who’d just left HI, didn’t have that privilege .

    There is no way in hell that she will give the story any legitimacy…

    She will make him out to be a kook birther instead of the highly decorated, level-headed patriot that he is…

    She won’t pose the question of why such a high profile and prestigious person would put his carreer and life on the line over this issue…

    She won’t pose the question of, Could there really be something to this?….

    She won’t mention the Kenyan Parliment, only two weeks ago, declaring that Obama was “born in Kenya and isn’t even a Native American”.

    If I’m wrong on this prediction, then I will eat my keynoard!!!

    And that may be by design

  37. blessedistruth Says:

    But you scare me, Mr. President. As I helplessly watch you take over our banks, auto industry, and healthcare as though it’s your right to confiscate the businesses Americans have built with their blood, sweat, and tears, you scare me. With your single-minded mission to increase your power and destroy ours, your chilling indifference to our crumbling economy, growing unemployment, and staggering debt that you carelessly pile higher and higher until our children don’t stand a chance of ever digging their generation out. Yes, Mr. President, you scare me. And you scare me, Congress. When you ignore the American people, turn a deaf ear to our desperate pleas to stop the bailouts and out-of-control spending. When you stopped ignoring us and openly and unrepentantly defied us to ram through a bill that threatens to destroy the best healthcare system in the world. When you pledge allegiance to a man instead of the United States of America, then yes, Congress, you scare me But I won’t cower or run, I’ll fight you every way I can. I’ll work to elect candidates who will uphold the Constitution and bring spending under control, even those who aren’t perfect, because the alternative is unthinkable. I’ll work polls to prevent fraud and I’ll get the word out, that it’s now or never to topple this tyrannical regime, now or never to rescue the greatest government on earth. And millions of Americans will stand and fight this oppression with even greater passion, fight with everything they have to save their beloved country.

    Woodward report

  38. blessedistruth Says:

    I’m not here to say that their assumptions do not have credibility. Their postulations may in fact even be true. But it doesn’t matter whether there is truth to the stories at all. His presidency will never be overturned or discredited because of these allegations because their will never be a definitive smoking gun. At any rate, if it got so far as to put the administration in a position that they did have to reveal an “authentic” certificate of live birth do you not think that the powers that be in federal government could construct such a document? Of course they could. They own the White House, they are the federal government, no Kenyan document or any other piece of information could ever trump the final say of the powers that be in the White House. So give it up World Net Daily. Use your resources for what is effective. Expose the policies, expose Obama’s agenda and forget about whether the President is “constitutionally eligible to serve.” It will serve your website and the citizens of this country far greater in the long run.

    Apr 16, 2010 11:33 a.m.Army doctor Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin has challenged the President to a face-off, but it has landed him in hot water.According to The New York Daily News , the 18 year veteran is on the verge of facing court-martial from the army for refusing to go to Afghanistan because he hasn’t seen a copy of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate.”I believe all servicemen and women, and the American people, deserve the truth about President Obama’s constitutional eligibility to the office of the presidency and the commander and chief,” Lakin, who joined the “birther” crusade that doesn’t believe Obama was born in the U.S. in March, said in a video statement on YouTube .”Seeking out public office, especially the highest in our land, means you must uphold the Constitution, Mr. President, and confirm your eligibility.”The Bronze Star Medal holder has said he will not deploy for a second tour in Afghanistan until Obama shows his birth certificate showing that he was born in the U.S. (Officials with Obama’s 2008 campaign posted a copy of a certification of live birth online .)CBS News reports that Lakin failed to report to Fort Campbell, Ky., this week for deployment and instead returned to his former job as a flight surgeon at a clinic in the Pentagon. It was there that his brigade commander, Col. Gordon Roberts told him he would face court martial.The military physician’s Pentagon entry pass and government laptop computer were also confiscated at the time.Born in Greeley, Colo., Lakin admitted in the YouTube video that he knew exactly what refusing orders would mean for his career and future “inviting my own court-martial.”According to Politico.com , the doctor has been assigned to duty at Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington, while Army spokesman George Wright said he is being investigated by the army for “missing the movement of a unit and violating an order.”

    And let me add this from economist Scott Sumner: When I started studying economics the US was much richer than Western Europe and Japan, but was also growing more slowly than other developed countries. They were still in the catch-up growth phase from the ravages of WWII. But since Reagan took office the US has been growing faster than most other big developed economies, and at least as fast in per capita terms. They’ve plateaued at about 25% below US levels, when you adjust for PPP. This is the steady state.  …   Why is per capita GDP in Western Europe so much lower than in the US? Mankiw seems to imply that high tax rates may be one of the reasons. … So I think Mankiw is saying that if we adopt the European model, there really isn’t a lot of evidence that we’d end up with any more revenue than we have right now. … Of course the progressives’ great hope is that we’ll end up like France. But Brazil also has high tax rates, how do they know we won’t end up like Brazil?

    Senate Republicans will find a receptive audience in Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.) for their proposal to break up banks. “Our hopes are that banks will be able to separate the risky aspects of what they do from the vulnerability [of the system],” Lincoln said Thursday, adding that she may have legislative language ready by Friday morning. Lincoln, chair of the Agriculture Committee, has jurisdiction over derivatives regulation. “I’m going to certainly make sure that people understand that when there’s risky business, there’s going to be regulation.”The White House is pushing hard. Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, leaving the Capitol on Thursday, told HuffPost he is happy to have Republican support for a tougher bill. “There’s a bipartisan bill to be had here. And the fact is it’s all about whether we’re going to be comprehensive, even with the derivatives section,” he said. “Warren Buffet spoke about it: ‘This is where, in fact, future crises can occur.’ And whether we’re going to have a tough, comprehensive, transparent… section on derivatives, is where, in fact, the whole issue is at.”

    Geithner Letter Could Steer Derivatives Debate Away From Ban on Banks

    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304510004575186813257960540.html?mod=WSJ_WSJ_US_PoliticsNCampaign_4

    Mr. Geithner’s two-page letter also could be an attempt to steer Ms. Lincoln’s bill away from one of its most controversial elements – a requirement that large U.S. banks completely spin off their derivatives trading businesses.

    While he doesn’t address this requirement in his letter, he does specify the exact requirements White House officials believe would accomplish tighter derivatives trading requirements.

    That could give Democrats cover to scale back her proposal while still toughening rules.

    Some Democrats are worried that her proposal might be so controversial it could imperil the broader chances of the bill’s passage, people familiar with the matter said.

    Sen. Judd Gregg (R., N.H.) said in an interview Thursday that Ms. Lincoln’s bill was “about as far ‘left’ as you could get on the issue of derivatives.”

    Ms. Lincoln and her Republican counterpart on the panel, Sen. Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, broke off negotiations over a possible bipartisan deal several days ago under pressure from the Obama administration to toughen the derivatives legislation.

    Instead of an industry-friendly bill, which many were expecting, she is drafting a much more restrictive bill, people familiar with the legislation said.

    Could SEC Case Against Goldman Push Banking Bill Into Law?

    http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2010/04/16/could-sec-case-against-goldman-push-banking-bill-into-law/

    The details are complex, but here’s what’s not: it comes as some Democrats want to ban – yes, ban – Wall Street banks from being able to trade derivatives.

    Goldman and four other big banks made $20 billion trading derivatives last year.

    That’s a lot of money, even for big banks.

    In the piling-on category, Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Blanche Lincoln (D., Ark.) is expected to release her bill Friday that would essentially ban banks from trading these products.

    Lincoln’s proposal is controversial and it’s unclear if many Democrats will sign on.

    But it won’t help Wall Street to have one of their own pilloried in the coming days while lawmakers decide how to vote.

    You know I’ve been trying to remember where I used to post before I even started RS.

    Hillary Clinton Forum is gone.

    That’s where I met HillBuzz and many others.

    Larry Sinclair, Citizen Wells, Zach Jones, Cao.

    And of course API long time before anyone ever heard of Korir.

    I posted Korir articles at HCF long before he ever made his claim about Michelle Obama tape.

    So I’m wondering how they’re all doing.

    I never fully agreed with any of these bloggers, even though I considered them friends.

    I’ve always had to be my own person.

    But I do maintain we were right.

    Whatever powers we were fighting against to prevent Obama from assuming power.

    We lost, but it was a good fight.

    I’m hoping I’m hoping I’m hoping …

    Most of the rest of our fellow Americans see that now.

    The New York Times Bashes Christians, Except On The Left
    By Michelle Malkin

    http://vdare.com/malkin/ny_times_bash.htm

    Why didn’t the reporter include the standard alarmist quote from secularist Barry Lynn questioning the tax-exempt status of the Riverside Church?

    And, putting aside the unholy spectre of an impeached president shamelessly invoking the Bible to condemn others for lying, where are all the Times’ editorial writers—previously so concerned about protecting the church sanctuary from disrespectful partisan politics—now?

    Clinton’s strident Sunday morning visit to the Riverside Church wasn’t just one spontaneous event, but part of a coordinated nationwide campaign called “Mobilization 2004.” The church’s pastor, Rev. James Forbes, has aligned with crockumentary filmmaker Michael Moore, socialist anti-war agitators Code Pink, and liberal Protestant churches bent on booting President Bush out of office. Forbes, who spoke at the Democratic National Convention, has his hands in protest events all week during the Republican National Convention, pushing everything from increased federal spending on hunger and homelessness to single-payer health insurance.

    ***

    “the unholy spectre of an impeached president shamelessly invoking the Bible to condemn others for lying”

    President Clinton had better be careful with his rhetoric.

    If it doesn’t land him in the hospital again, then he just may see an elongated nose as he gazes at himself in the mirror.

  65. blessedistruth Says:

    You didn’t do anything wrong.

    I am more than a little bonkers where my family is concerned.

    God knows why.

    Just let me think on this a little, okay?

  66. Troy Says:

    Rose, I’m glad you found the comments you were looking for, but now jr and I are scratching our heads a little bit because we have been removed from administering the blog.

    We are definitely confused as to what is going on.

    Would you rather us start a new blog?

  67. blessedistruth Says:

    well since you bring it up

    maybe that would be best

  68. Troy Says:

    Ok Rosie…I can understand that you have a lot of yourself invested into Rosettasister’s blog that you would like to keep for posterity.

    Please understand that jr and I do also, as well as some of the commenters that have had thread post published.

    WordPress will allow for a person to IMPORT posts and comments from one blog to another….That is what jr and I would like to do with our past postings….ONLY OUR (none of your’s) posts would be copied to a new blog and set in it’s archives.

    Would you be so curteous as to reinstate jr and I as administrators long enough to get this done?….Also, it would be nice if the current thread post could be allowed to stand for, say two days, in order for us to post a link and announcement to readers.

    Whenever our past posts are set in archives at http://heyokatroy.wordpress.com/ then, if you like or would prefer, you could delete all of mine and jr’s old post and get the blog set back to pure Rose.

    I hope you will still come visit with us!!!

    Then again, if someone tasked me with collecting offensive, racist, misspelled signs from International ANSWER rallies, I suspect I could cobble together a pretty terrifying display from “the other side.” (This isn’t entirely accurate, for many of the people at the Tea Parties are staunch anti-interventionists; indeed, Glenn Beck is drifting towards a Ron Paul-type foreign policy). So after the Frank Rich “they-are-all-Bull-Connor” arguments, we are back to the “they-are-all-potential-Tim-McVeigh” arguments, this time courtesy of Bill Clinton. Is there evidence to substantiate such a claim? Well, no. But there is, after all, “the rise of extremist voices on talk radio…[and] you have a billion Internet sites.” Potential fertilizer bombers, all of them.

  77. blessedistruth Says:

    Mr. McConnell apparently confronted some difficulty in seeking to obtain the signatures of all 41 Republicans on a letter opposing the bill. With public anger at Wall Street running high, many Republicans have expressed concern about any appearance that they are siding with big banks over Main Street. Mr. McConnell has framed the Republican opposition as an attempt to prevent future bailouts, and has specifically criticized a $50 billion fund, to be created with a tax on banks, that would help cover the costs of dealing with failing firms in the future. Mr. McConnell said the mere existence of the fund is an invitation to banks to take on risk that could lead them to fail. The White House does not support the fund, which is being pushed by Congressional Democrats. Democrats have countered that the fund is intended pay for dismantling such firms and putting them out of business – and that setting up in advance would help ensure that the financial industry, rather than taxpayers, would cover the expense of future failures. In the letter, the Republicans continued to focus on the need to prevent future bailouts. “We simply cannot ask the American taxpayer to continue to subsidize this ‘too big to fail’ policy,” they wrote. “We must ensure that Wall Street no longer believes or relies on Main Street to bail them out. Inaction is not an option. However, it is imperative that what we do does not worsen the current economic climate or codify the circumstances that led to the last financial crisis.” Some Republicans have accused the White House of interfering with negotiations among senators on the banking committee and the Agriculture Committee, which has jurisdiction over the Commodities Futures Trading Commission, which in turn regulates financial instruments known as derivatives. “We urge you to support the bipartisan negotiations by the Banking and Agriculture Committees,” the Republicans wrote in their letter. “We are confident that the Senate can overcome political tensions and provide a bipartisan approach to financial reform this year.” Senators on both sides say that an agreement will likely be reached.

    A curious thing happened in the Supreme Court budget hearing yesterday. Rep.

Nervous laughter ensues and the topic is quickly dropped. I’d like to know what my fellow FReepers think of the exchange. It happens around the 1:13-1:14:10 mark in the video. It would be great if someone could isolate that exchange and put it on YouTube so everyone could hear it without sitting through the entire hearing.

    Republicans aren’t ruling out raising taxes or any other option for dealing with the country’s debt problem as they head into the White House fiscal commission’s first meeting.Everything is on the table, said Sen. Tom Coburn (Okla.), one of six GOP lawmakers on the commission, when asked by The Hill whether he’d block any recommendation to raise taxes.I will sit down with anybody at anytime to discuss anything to see if there is any common ground to prevent the fiscal insanity this nation has engaged in today, said Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), another commission member.Coburn, Hensarling and the four other GOP lawmakers on the panel haven’t set preconditions on the commission’s talks, echoing the line President Barack Obama gave when he created the panel by executive order in January. The first meeting is scheduled for April 27.Obama is calling on the 18-member panel to produce a set of recommendations that will reduce large deficits to sustainable levels.

  85. blessedistruth Says:

    So what’s the solution? More private demand is essential, she said, but government can do more than it is – and Congress should embrace everything the president has proposed and then some.  “One targeted measure that is likely to be very effective is additional fiscal relief to the states,” she said. Another is putting money into smaller banks, as the president has proposed, to get them to lend more to small and medium sized firms. A third is more aggressive actions to open foreign markets to U.S. goods and services. “Things are better,” she said, “but they are not nearly good enough. We are painfully far from normal.”

    Romer more govt stimulus?

    And pay for it how?

    How much of porkulus is still unspent?

    Why not use that money?

    If it really would grow jobs in the private sector I guess that makes sense

    But more stimulus for public sector no

    Senate Democrats and Republicans have been at loggerheads over Senate Banking Committee Chairman Chris Dodd’s (D-Conn.) financial regulatory reform bill, mostly because of its proposed liquidation fund. That pot of money, paid into exclusively by banks, would help ensure the orderly end to firms whose collapse could endanger the economy.Republicans have long excoriated that fund, and Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) earlier this week described it as a backdoor for a taxpayer bailout. But Geithner deflected that criticism on Sunday, noting the fund would actually make sure the taxpayer is not exposed to a penny of loss.It’s absolutely not true, Geithner said of McConnell’s comments, and some of his members say it was over the top.I’ve spent a lot of time with Republicans, he added, and I believe we are very close to this…

  89. blessedistruth Says:

    Washington (CNN) — In a move aimed at jump-starting bipartisan negotiations on Wall Street reform, Obama administration officials have signaled that they want Democratic Sen. Christopher Dodd to remove a $50 billion bank liquidation fund from his financial regulation bill. Republicans have pounced on the $50 billion provision, saying the legislation will lead to more government bailouts of large banks, effectively stalling progress on the bill. “The ex-ante fund was not in our original proposal we announced almost a year ago, and we don’t feel it is an essential part of final legislation,” said one administration official late Friday. “The president will only sign a bill if it passes the test of putting an end to bailouts.” White House aides have vehemently denied for days the provision will spark more bailouts. Republican aides asserted the shift is a sign the White House fears the criticism is having an impact. But Democratic officials suggested the move is really an attempt to challenge Republicans on whether they will still oppose the reform bill even after the controversial provision is removed

    media gives space to the neo-cons as they are the zionist sponsored batch and the most extreme of the teabaggers. They are also as phony as the fundy Christian movement, another zionist started and lead fascist movement to promote zionist policy. The neo-con teabaggers’ purpose is to give zionist puppet obama and his merry corporate welfare crew some opposition to fool the wad with…Really nasty opposition, whom obama & co. will look progressive against. You see, that’s how zionists maintain their political control over the wad. They put rightwing up against far right fringies and call that political diversity. It’s all a crock of shite. The dangerous fascists in the usa, the ones with the real power to actually do things, are the zionists and their puppets who are at the root of all this rubbish. But you wont hear chomsky mention them. And we all know why, by now. What chomsky is doing is naming some of the symptoms of this known disease while hiding what disease it is and what its cause is. Not very honest, and not very bright, either. It’s like busting charles manson’s crew and leaving manson free to walk the streets. Each time I hear chomsky talk or read something from him, he loses more of my respect and I don’t have much of that left for him now. That’s quite a loss of confidence, considering back in the 80’s, I probably respected the man more than any other in his field.

    From article linked above

  93. blessedistruth Says:

    CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — Champaign Mayor Jerry Schweighart didn’t hesitate when someone at a tea party gathering asked him on camera what he thought about President Barack Obama. The third-term Republican said Thursday in a video posted on YouTube that he doesn’t believe the president is a U.S. citizen. He echoed doubts raised by some members of loosely knit tea party groups and other Obama opponents around the country and said the president has failed to produce proof. Schweighart said in an interview Friday that he stands by the comments. He isn’t sure who shot the video.

    I guess schweighart didn’t get the memo

    Oh I forgot all this birther nonsense is part of a zionist plot to make anti birthers on the right appear less fringy

    That’s the tckt!
