Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Super Committee already bought off

According to The Raw Story, the members of our unconstitutional super committee enacted along with the debt ceiling increase, have already gotten the mother lode of federal reserve cartel money:
In total, the twelve members appointed to the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction got nearly $64.5 million from special interests groups over the past decade, with legal firms donating about $31.5 million and Wall Street firms donating about $11.2 million.

Of that $11.2 million, Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, Bank of America and JPMorgan Chase donated approximately $2 million combined.
The members appointed to the committee are Sens. Pat Toomey (R-PA), Jon Kyl (R-AZ), Rob Portman (R-OH), Patty Murray (D-WA), John Kerry (D-MA), and Max Baucus (D-MT) and Reps. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX), Fred Upton (R-MI), Dave Camp (R-MI), Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), Xavier Becerra (D-CA), and Jim Clyburn (D-SC).
Democratic and liberal groups donated the third most amount of money, with about $9.6 million in political contributions, and the health industry donated the fourth most, with about $9.3 million.
Club for Growth, a conservative free market group, donated more money than any other organization, contributing a combined $990,066 to the twelve lawmakers. The vast majority of that money went to Sen. Toomey.
Microsoft Corp. donated the second most, with $810,100.
This money was given over the last 10 years and indicates how tied in these super committee members are tied into the banking cartel and the foundations that we have discussed at such length here.  I would assume Club for Growth gave so much as Pat Toomey is a former president of that group. Just another piece in the puzzle for those of us who are watching.


  1. Those who did not see this one coming, should not be allowed to vote.

  2. I didn't see a "super-committee" coming in the debt ceiling talks, but you got to believe the people they'd pick would be one of "them".
