Super Congress: the final nail in the coffin of representative democracy and freedom as we know it

Madison Ruppert, Contributing Writer
Activist Post

Cloaked in the fear surrounding the debt ceiling and a possible default is the most dangerous legislation that America has ever faced. If this passes, the Super Congress will make the PATRIOT Act look like a just and fair law. When six Republicans, six Democrats and the President have complete control over the legislature, we need to be concerned.

The most frightening aspect of this proposed “committee”, inaccurate though the term may be, is the fact that lawmakers in Washington have already openly admitted the unprecedented power they will be afforded.

Referring to the Super Congress as a committee is a bit deceitful. Calling it a Supreme Council of Overlords would be a bit more accurate.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made this quite clear by announcing on the Senate floor that, “The joint committee – there are no constraints. They can look at any program we have in government, any program … It has the ability to look at everything.”

When this is made explicit and openly so, I think there should be some serious concern among Americans. The PATRIOT Act was not billed as an Act that would be used to detain and torture Americans and innocent people from around the globe who did not have any evidence against them. We only found this out after it was rushed into law.

The Super Congress, on the other hand, has already been exposed as a completely unconstitutional body that will remove the ability for anyone to filibuster a bill or amend it in any way. This gives 13 people the unprecedented power to push through any legislation without a single amendment.

This fact already has some groups up in arms, literally.

The Gun Owners of America released a statement summarizing how this Super Congress could easily be used to wipe out our right to bear arms.

As they outline, much of the unconstitutional gun control legislation has been killed in the House and Senate through filibuster and with the help of Speaker of the House John Boehner.

However, if the Super Congress is passed into law, the crucial ability to filibuster will destroy all impediments and highly restrictive laws like the United Nation’s small arms treaty could easily be put into law.

The larger question that looms over this entire issue is: what can they not pass?

Unfortunately for everyone in America, and the world for that matter, this Super Congress would have literally no limitations whatsoever. Every single controversial bill that has been filibustered or voted out could be pushed through. Let your imagination run wild, although be warned it likely won’t lead anywhere pretty.

If you live in the United States, you have the duty to contact everyone you know and inform them about this issue. We need to build a massive grassroots movement that will inundate our representatives 24/7 with the call to never allow this to be put into law. We must stop this before it is passed, or else it will be too late and whatever shred of freedom we had left will be lost for good.

Too late

They did this for the same reason they don't declare war any more, the same reason they handed all their authority to the Executive in the last few years: to avoid their oath and the responsibility that goes with it. It's really pretty simple. It's bad enough they're 99% crooks and liars - but they're LAZY crooks and liars...

The Substitute Congress to do what the Auctioned Congress can't. Congress has a 6% approval rating. The people of this country know Congress represents money not people. Even this corrupt body was unable to pass legislation creating the Cat Food Commission, so Obama created it himself. He appointed an investment banker affiliated with the D Party to 'represent' us. This Commission has already defined what will be on or off the table for consideration.

So, Boehner will pick 6 of the most rightwing whacked out financial bankster representatives you can imagine, and Reid will pick out 6 Democrats more accurately called Republicans, and together they will decide how much money needs to be stolen from the public to keep the war machine, both overseas and here at home, prosperous and what the banks need to provide cover as they loot the nation's shelves bare.

The media will reenact the CRISIS meme, and the Democrats will make their speeches about how it was the best they could do but they had to sign something.

But no one could see it coming. No one.

It's long past time for the state legislatures to pass legislation voiding all "federal" laws dating from 1910. Shut down all "federal" agencies within the 50 states. Seize all military bases. And jail any "federal" agents attempting to enforce any "federal" laws inside the 50 states.

It's time, people. Turn off your f***ing TVs, your IPods, your government tracking devices called cell phones, put down your bottles of water, and decide whether you are going to allow a criminal syndicate masquerading as two political parties turn you into slaves, or whether you're going to give these criminal, Zionist-owned scum what they so richly deserve.

You've got next to NO time left.

How about the Bank of International Settlements and the private ownership of the 150+ central banks worldwide? Isn't that the unelected government that runs the world already? This will simply be the icing on the cake, because some fat-assed central banker got his panties in a knot because he knows he will be strung up high by the masses one day, should they ever get their hands on him.

This is the way the U.N. fingerlings operate: just like Obama's czars, the construct is set up like all communist organizations. The world government is being set up rapidly, according to long planned means. This whole scenario since before the 2008 "financial crisis" is devised so as to allow no elected officials to be responsible to the public.

All officials are APPOINTED. The "world financial system" was set up a year before before WWII was over, at Bretton Woods, July 1944, constructed by 2 communists , Harry Dexter White and the commie that rules us all from the grave, John Maynard Keynes.

This United Nations was unofficially put into action behind the scenes, the IMF & World Bank, made official in 1945 although the UN was not ratified by our Senate until August 1948.

The official founding U.N. document was and still is a communist document, with all that implies. It has always worked behind the curtain to take over the world and its resources, to be transferred to the world power elite from the nations of the world.

The Federal Reserve and the cartel of world banksters are the prime means by which it is being accomplished. Our politicians are paid BIG, BIG bucks for every vote they place by the lobbyists representing the "controllers".

That is the reason the "good old boys" on both sides don't want to allow anyone to play in their sandbox.

http://larouchepac.com/node/18977 The Super Congress is Obama's latest unconstitutional effort to work with Wall Street and the corrupt credit rating agencies of London to collapse the U.S. economy. This is a foreign-led British coup against the U.S. Constitution and our sovereign nation. It is unnecessary to sell government bonds to raise capital, when there is a clear directive of the Federal Constitution to have an economic policy based on a credit system. The U.S. government needs a credit system to directly fund the real physical economy in areas of agriculture, industry, transportation, and scientific research.
