The word American can be defined in many different ways. An American could be a person whose ancestors came from a different country with a dream or it could be a person that was born right here in America with a dream. The one thing that makes all of these individuals "American" is that they all have special dreams. Like one person may want to become President and other may want to become a fighter Pilot. Both have a strong desire to serve their country America and fellow Americans in their own ways. These dreams are called The American Dream.

An American believes in the equality of human kind, the obligation to serve one another, and a true commitment to liberty for fellow Americans and every human being on this earth. These are the values every American of different faith strongly believes in and together we stand as a nation, united under God as United States of America.

Americans are the only one in the world for centuries who have laid their lives to preserve freedom for them selves, fellow Americans and freedom for others through out the world. For this sacrifice we have never taken any country’s land or made slave to any country whether it was world war one or world war 2 or the current war of Freedom we are fighting for the people of Iraq and Afghanistan against the Islamic Jihadis who do not understand a sacred religion Islam.

Rather Americans through their government generously give out to rebuild war-ravaged countries around the world liberated from extremists. American citizens are the biggest charity givers in the world with $135 billion given in 2006 besides $45 billion given by our government around the world purely for humanitarian purposes.

These are the great American values and our moral heritage, which we all share as Americans of different faiths. Unity in diversity has made America the melting pot of all religions and cultures of the world that is why America is a great country to live on this earth.

Say it with pride,
I am proud to be an American.”

God Bless
United States of America.

"A Common Creed Of Moral Convictions"

Mitt Romney's "Faith in America "
speech was simply magnificent, and anyone who denies it is not to be trusted as an analyst. On every level it was a masterpiece. The staging and Romney's delivery, the eclipse of all other candidates it caused, the domination of the news cycle just prior to the start of absentee voting in New Hampshire on Monday --for all these reasons and more it will be long discussed as a masterpiece of political maneuver.

Far more important than all of that, however, was the content of the address, which was a brilliant explication of the American political theory of faith and freedom. Romney used the moment to defend not just himself but the American tradition of faith in the public square, of vigorous and valued religious plurality, and, crucially, why that tradition has allowed America's role in the world to be so unqualifiedly good. The unexpected but brilliant connection of our tradition of religious liberty with our ability to move in the world to save it again and again from evil and to rebuild it without demands for territory or treasure lifted the speech very far above the ordinary campaign speech, and in so doing lifted the Romney candidacy. Americans watching the speech were listening to a great communicator talk with pride and obvious skill and passion about America and its long history of freedom. This is a much loved and too infrequent thing: An American leader talking with unashamed love and reverence for the country and its shining tradition of tolerance and fierce attachment to liberty.

Here is the text of the speech for your convenience:

"Thank you, Mr. President, for your kind introduction.

"It is an honor to be here today. This is an inspiring place because of you and the First Lady and because of the film exhibited across the way in the Presidential library. For those who have not seen it, it shows the President as a young pilot, shot down during the Second World War, being rescued from his life-raft by the crew of an American submarine. It is a moving reminder that when America has faced challenge and peril, Americans rise to the occasion, willing to risk their very lives to defend freedom and preserve our nation. We are in your debt. Thank you, Mr. President.

"Mr. President, your generation rose to the occasion, first to defeat Fascism and then to vanquish the Soviet Union. You left us, your children, a free and strong America. It is why we call yours the greatest generation. It is now my generation's turn. How we respond to today's challenges will define our generation. And it will determine what kind of America we will leave our children, and theirs.

"America faces a new generation of challenges. Radical violent Islam seeks to destroy us. An emerging China endeavors to surpass our economic leadership. And we are troubled at home by government overspending, overuse of foreign oil, and the breakdown of the family.

"Over the last year, we have embarked on a national debate on how best to preserve American leadership. Today, I wish to address a topic which I believe is fundamental to America's greatness: our religious liberty. I will also offer perspectives on how my own faith would inform my Presidency, if I were elected.

"There are some who may feel that religion is not a matter to be seriously considered in the context of the weighty threats that face us. If so, they are at odds with the nation's founders, for they, when our nation faced its greatest peril, sought the blessings of the Creator.And further, they discovered the essential connection between the survival of a free land and the protection of religious freedom. In John Adams' words: 'We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion... Our constitution was made for a moral and religious people.'

"Freedom requires religion just as religion requires freedom. Freedom opens the windows of the soul so that man can discover his most profound beliefs and commune with God. Freedom and religion endure together, or perish alone.

"Given our grand tradition of religious tolerance and liberty, some wonder whether there are any questions regarding an aspiring candidate's religion that are appropriate. I believe there are. And I will answer them today.

"Almost 50 years ago another candidate from Massachusetts explained that he was an American running for president, not a Catholic running for President. Like him, I am an American running for president. I do not define my candidacy by my religion. A person should not be elected because of his faith nor should he be rejected because of his faith.

"Let me assure you that no authorities of my church, or of any other church for that matter, will ever exert influence on presidential decisions. Their authority is theirs, within the province of church affairs, and it ends where the affairs of the nation begin.

"As governor, I tried to do the right as best I knew it, serving the law and answering to the Constitution. I did not confuse the particular teachings of my church with the obligations of the office and of the Constitution - and of course, I would not do so as President. I will put no doctrine of any church above the plain duties of the office and the sovereign authority of the law.

"As a young man, Lincoln described what he called America's 'political religion'-the commitment to defend the rule of law and the Constitution. When I place my hand on the Bible and take the oath of office, that oath becomes my highest promise to God. If I am fortunate to become your president, I will serve no one religion, no one group, no one cause, and no one interest. A President must serve only the common cause of the people of the United States .

"There are some for whom these commitments are not enough. They would prefer it if I would simply distance myself from my religion, say that it is more a tradition than my personal conviction, or disavow one or another of its precepts. That I will not do. I believe in my Mormon faith and I endeavor to live by it. My faith is the faith of my fathers - I will be true to them and to my beliefs.

"Some believe that such a confession of my faith will sink my candidacy. If they are right, so be it. But I think they underestimate the American people. Americans do not respect believers of convenience. Americans tire of those who would jettison their beliefs, even to gain the world.

"There is one fundamental question about which I often am asked. What do I believe about Jesus Christ? I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the Savior of mankind. My church's beliefs about Christ may not all be the same as those of other faiths. Each religion has its own unique doctrines and history. These are not bases for criticism but rather a test of our tolerance. Religious tolerance would be a shallow principle indeed if it were reserved only for faiths with which we agree.

"There are some who would have a presidential candidate describe and explain his church's distinctive doctrines. To do so would enable the very religious test the founders prohibited in the Constitution. No candidate should become the spokesman for his faith. For if he becomes President he will need the prayers of the people of all faiths.

"I believe that every faith I have encountered draws its adherents closer to God. And in every faith I have come to know, there are features I wish were in my own: I love the profound ceremony of the Catholic Mass, the approachability of God in the prayers of theEvangelicals, the tenderness of spirit among the Pentecostals, the confident independence of the Lutherans, the ancient traditions of the Jews, unchanged through the ages, and the commitment to frequent prayer of the Muslims. As I travel across the country and see our towns and cities, I am always moved by the many houses of worship with their steeples, all pointing to heaven, reminding us of the source of life's blessings.

"It is important to recognize that while differences in theology exist between the churches in America , we share a common creed of moral convictions. And where the affairs of our nation are concerned, it's usually a sound rule to focus on the latter - on the great moralprinciples that urge us all on a common course. Whether it was the cause of abolition, or civil rights, or the right to life itself, no movement of conscience can succeed in America that cannot speak to the convictions of religious people.

"We separate church and state affairs in this country, and for good reason. No religion should dictate to the state nor should the state interfere with the free practice of religion. But in recent years, the notion of the separation of church and state has been taken by some well beyond its original meaning. They seek to remove from the public domain any acknowledgment of God. Religion is seen as merely a private affair with no place in public life. It is as if they are intent on establishing a new religion in America - the religion of secularism. They are wrong.

"The founders proscribed the establishment of a state religion, but they did not countenance the elimination of religion from the public square. We are a nation 'Under God' and in God, we do indeed trust.

"We should acknowledge the Creator as did the Founders - in ceremony and word. He should remain on our currency, in our pledge, in the teaching of our history, and during the holiday season, nativity scenes and menorahs should be welcome in our public places. Our greatness would not long endure without judges who respect the foundation of faith upon which our constitution rests. I will take care to separate the affairs of government from any religion, but I will not separate us from 'the God who gave us liberty.'

"Nor would I separate us from our religious heritage. Perhaps the most important question to ask a person of faith who seeks a political office, is this: does he share these American values: the equality of human kind, the obligation to serve one another, and a steadfastcommitment to liberty?

"They are not unique to any one denomination. They belong to the great moral inheritance we hold in common. They are the firm ground on which Americans of different faiths meet and stand as a nation, united.

"We believe that every single human being is a child of God - we are all part of the human family. The conviction of the inherent and inalienable worth of every life is still the most revolutionary political proposition ever advanced. John Adams put it that we are ‘thrown into the world all equal and alike.’

"The consequence of our common humanity is our responsibility to one another, to our fellow Americans foremost, but also to every child of God. It is an obligation which is fulfilled by Americans every day, here and across the globe, without regard to creed or race or nationality.

"Americans acknowledge that liberty is a gift of God, not an indulgence of government. No people in the history of the world have sacrificed as much for liberty. The lives of hundreds of thousands of America 's sons and daughters were laid down during the last century to preservefreedom, for us and for freedom loving people throughout the world. America took nothing from that Century's terrible wars - no land from Germany or Japan or Korea ; no treasure; no oath of fealty. America 's resolve in the defense of liberty has been tested time and again. Ithas not been found wanting, nor must it ever be. America must never falter in holding high the banner of freedom.

"These American values, this great moral heritage, is shared and lived in my religion as it is in yours. I was taught in my home to honor God and love my neighbor. I saw my father march with Martin Luther King. I saw my parents provide compassionate care to others, in personal ways to people nearby, and in just as consequential ways in leading national volunteer movements. I am moved by the Lord's words: 'For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: naked, and ye clothed me...'

"My faith is grounded on these truths. You can witness them in Ann and my marriage and in our family. We are a long way from perfect and we have surely stumbled along the way, but our aspirations, our values, are the self-same as those from the other faiths that stand upon this common foundation. And these convictions will indeed inform my presidency.

"Today's generations of Americans have always known religious liberty. Perhaps we forget the long and arduous path our nation's forbearers took to achieve it. They came here from England to seek freedom of religion. But upon finding it for themselves, they at first denied it to others. Because of their diverse beliefs, Ann Hutchinson was exiled from Massachusetts Bay, a banished Roger Williams founded Rhode Island , and two centuries later, Brigham Young set out for the West. Americans were unable to accommodate their commitment to their own faith with an appreciation for the convictions of others to different faiths. In this, they were very much like those of the European nations they had left.

"It was in Philadelphia that our founding fathers defined a revolutionary vision of liberty, grounded on self evident truths about the equality of all, and the inalienable rights with which each is endowed by his Creator.

"We cherish these sacred rights, and secure them in our Constitutional order. Foremost do we protect religious liberty, not as a matter of policy but as a matter of right. There will be no established church, and we are guaranteed the free exercise of our religion.

"I'm not sure that we fully appreciate the profound implications of our tradition of religious liberty. I have visited many of the magnificent cathedrals in Europe . They are so inspired ... so grand ... so empty. Raised up over generations, long ago, so many of the cathedrals nowstand as the postcard backdrop to societies just too busy or too 'enlightened' to venture inside and kneel in prayer. The establishment of state religions in Europe did no favor to Europe 's churches. And though you will find many people of strong faith there, the churchesthemselves seem to be withering away.

"Infinitely worse is the other extreme, the creed of conversion by conquest: violent Jihad, murder as martyrdom... killing Christians, Jews, and Muslims with equal indifference. These radical Islamists do their preaching not by reason or example, but in the coercion of mindsand the shedding of blood. We face no greater danger today than theocratic tyranny, and the boundless suffering these states and groups could inflict if given the chance.

"The diversity of our cultural expression, and the vibrancy of our religious dialogue, has kept America in the forefront of civilized nations even as others regard religious freedom as something to be destroyed.

"In such a world, we can be deeply thankful that we live in a land where reason and religion are friends and allies in the cause of liberty, joined against the evils and dangers of the day. And you can be certain of this: Any believer in religious freedom, any person who has knelt in prayer to the Almighty, has a friend and ally in me. And so it is for hundreds of millions of our countrymen: we do not insist on a single strain of religion - rather, we welcome our nation's symphony of faith.

"Recall the early days of the First Continental Congress in Philadelphia , during the fall of 1774. With Boston occupied by British troops, there were rumors of imminent hostilities and fears of an impending war. In this time of peril, someone suggested that they pray. But there were objections. 'They were too divided in religious sentiments', what with Episcopalians and Quakers, Anabaptists and Congregationalists, Presbyterians and Catholics.

"Then Sam Adams rose, and said he would hear a prayer from anyone of piety and good character, as long as they were a patriot.

"And so together they prayed, and together they fought, and together, by the grace of God ... they founded this great nation.

"In that spirit, let us give thanks to the divine 'author of liberty.' And together, let us pray that this land may always be blessed, 'with freedom's holy light.'

"God bless the United States of America

Mitt Romney
From Kennedy to Romney: 47 Years of Judicial War Against American Freedom of Religion
BY NEWT GINGRICH 12-10-07 In the forty-seven years since Democratic presidential nominee John F. Kennedy delivered his historic speech, the courts have been increasingly hostile toward public religious expression and increasingly tolerant of anti-religious bigots and their agenda to remove all references to and acknowledgement of God from public life.
Consider what Kennedy said in his inaugural address. He began by reminding us that he had just "sworn before you and Almighty God the same solemn oath our forbears prescribed nearly a century and three-quarters ago." He went on to reassert Jefferson's premise in the Declaration of Independence that we are all "endowed by [our] Creator with certain unalienable rights" by saying that "the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe-the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God."

Kennedy concluded his inauguration speech with these words, asking Americans to aspire to something greater than ourselves "with a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God's work must truly be our own."
It is indeed true, as President Kennedy made plain, that our rights do indeed come to us from God, not from government, and they belong to all Americans -- believers and unbelievers alike.

What is different today is that we are living in an America that has suffered from 47 years of a judicial war against American freedom of religion. Gov. Romney deserves credit for defending American religious freedom -- and defending it well.

POSTED ON 11-10-07
$9 trillion National Debt & $50 trillion in hidden unfunded liabilities; mandatory social security & Medicare payments, government & military pensions, interest on debt. To make matters worse; falling dollar, falling Equity markets where major indices are down by over 10% so far this year from their highs, falling US Treasury now yielding 3.87% down from 5.3% just 3 years ago, 20 year high commodity prices, ever rising energy prices & worst ever credit markets. All of this has made us biggest debtor nation in the world because American public, our state & Federal governments are living beyond their means. On top of this America is at war in Iraq & Afghanistan besides 38 other countries to fight serious threats of terrorism at home & American interest abroad. On top of every thing 4 million illegal immigrants are crossing US borders every year which is a National Threat.

Falling Real Estate Prices & Mortgage crisis is due to one of the debt derivatives RMBS and “Pulse Only” Loans given to people with bad or no credit history by crooks in Banking & Real Estate for points & other dubious fees. Merrill Lynch write down for 3rd quarter of $7.9 billion for its portfolio backed by sub prime mortgages is the biggest quarterly loss since it was founded in 1914. Citibank has taken a $7 billion write off for Q3 due to sub-prime mortgages and whispered to media they have another $15-17 billion like Merrill Lynch has another &12-15 billion. Countrywide Home Loans the biggest Mortgage lender took a $2 billion Q3 write off for the first time since its inception 25 years ago. Countrywide in Sep & Oct took out $22 billion from different banks from unused credit limits. By the time Banks realized what they were doing it was too late. Rumors are Citibank or Wachovia is going to take their worthless equity so that they don’t have to disclose to its shareholders the money has been lost. On their heel is No. 2 buyer & guarantor of home loans Freddie Mac posted it largest Q3 loss of $2 billion, Wachovia $1.75 Billion and the list goes on and on. Conservative estimate for such write offs combine of all Banks & non-Banks of America is around $130 billion and will go up to $350-$400 billion if one trust the numbers of US Congressional Report of estimated 2 million Sub Prime Mortgage foreclosures by 2009. Yesterday Citi repeated history again; in 1991 it sold over 4% equity to Saudi Prince and now 4.9% to Abu Dhabi for $7.5 billion to cover its anticipated $11 billion Q4 losses stemming from sub prime loans. Citi’s desperation to sell itself to Middle East is an indication all US Banks & Non Bank institutions like AIG, Zurich Re are for sale. American public must act now and demand full disclosures for debts based on crafty derivatives.

Housing wealth has already lost $71 billion; states will lose $920 million in Property Taxes revenues alone in 2007 because of foreclosures. US housing market is valued at $22 trillion; down turn is going to have wider implications than Tech Boom burst 7 years ago. Housing Slump, bad equity market, bad credit market, rising debts & falling US Treasury are all based on crafty debt derivatives a nuclear bomb; is going to keep entire US economy on life support for next 2-3 years which in turn keep the world economy in intensive care for 3-5 years.

Debt derivatives RMBS’s, CDPC’s, CDO’s & CLO’s a creation of Thugs from Wall Street & world bankers is like a rug on the world financial problems. These derivatives represent about $345 trillion, which is 9 times the GDP of entire world. General public & majority of Politicians have very little or no knowledge of such derivatives based on other debts. In lay men terms each time a debt is repackaged and sold it grows in some cases exponentially to take care of the brokers fees, advertising, marketing, funding to Politicians and mark up for Wall Street/similar firms as the case may be around the world. These debt derivates have created an enormous inverted pyramid of global debt thousand times greater than the value of the underlying assets and Americans hold majority of it.

Think of it what will happen if the underlying assets (like real estate) upon which all of this pyramiding debt are based; declines in value? Think of other derivates CDPC’s, CDO’s & CLO’s which are based on other debts unlike RMBS’s which is based on Real Estate; decline in value in fact are already declining in value. Who gets sucked up holding these worthless uncollectible Debts? The answer is American Public & America’s trading partners around the world!

Just to make it simpler for the general public here is the explanation for the looming biggest financial crisis in the world. Majority of the sub prime defaulters are in the category of loans between $100,000.00 to $300,000 where people are not too smart to understand the finer prints created by attorneys like John Edward running for President. On paper a home owner took a loan of $100 and in reality was given $82-$85 after deducting points, administrative fee & broker fee for a property which was actually worth $80.00 but inflated to $100.00 to cover the mark up of crooks in Banking & Real Estate.

Now these kinds of loans from different parts of USA are clubbed by a genius at Wall Street and the repackaging cost is $30.00 which includes mark up for this genius, marketing, advertising, broker fee & donations to political parties with a face value of $100 on a under lying asset of $80.00 with an assumption the market will go only North not south. Unfortunately the market has gone South and real estate is down from 40- 45%. So the underlying asset now after losses & $30.00 repackaging cost is $10.00 -15.00. That much this Bond with a face value of $100.00 is worth today based on this under lying asset which big Pension Funds & individuals are holding in their Portfolios. Imagine if every one wants their money back! These Bonds are worthless.

That is what Main Stream Media & American Politicians does not want the Public to know that US Govt. pumped in over $50 billion to keep the liquidity in the market and forced their European & other allies to pump in another $ 200 billion to put a thick rug on the crisis which is 10-20 times bigger than the Tech burst of 2000. People like Hillary Clinton who is being heavily financed by Wall Street, Hollywood & main stream Media wants to rescue with American Tax Payers Dollars these highly qualified crooks well versed in Laws who with full understanding & knowledge of financial markets including derivatives gave Pulse only loans to people with no or shaky credits and then created worthless Bonds which has been sold to these loan takers and others in their personal portfolios, Retirement & Pension Funds. Bravo! Bravo! Bravo!

Last week 5 biggest Wall Street Firms shamelessly announced they are going to give out $38 million in Bonuses which is $5 million more than last year to their employees for doing frauds with American public. It works out to be $200,000.00 for each employee. It is an insult to American public & their share holders.

Still this minority controlled mainstream Media is dictating; Americans must elect their new President rather a radical Pastor with no character & integrity, no vision & understanding of economy may be a con artist or a money machine dependent on Wall Street, defense contractors & Hollywood or a born again Christian or an Ambulance chaser all with vast inexperience.

History is our witness we American have always come out of much bigger crisis than what we are facing now. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke does not mind inflation to avoid recession. Higher inflation will create more poor in America so we have tough decisions to make as well as we all have to make sacrifices to save our country from recession & terrorists.

In the coming Presidential election Americans will use their judgment in selecting a Leader who will be able to bring us out of this looming recession created by inverted Debt Pyramid based on imaginary assets and non existent earnings and terrorism. Every American including a new born child has a debt of over $35,000.00 to pay because of these massive debts. Rember this figure is changing every minute because of the carrying cost "Interest" and massive cost to fight terrorism at home and abroad. We need a Leader who should be able to solve to certain extent all our domestic problems and serious threats to our domestic & national security. That Leader we have very much present among us we just have to look beyond our Media endorsed candidates with vast in-experience and fake conservative mask.

God bless America & Every Human on this planet Earth.

Pretending to be conservatives; minority controlled majority mainstream Media with the money from their counter parts in Wall Street & Hollywood; with their unprecedented feed is trying to brain wash American public with their choice of Presidential candidates without educating them about massive financial crises, trade deficit, America’s status as biggest debtor nation in the world & other problems like serious threats of terrorism at home & abroad. American forces are at war in Iraq & Afghanistan besides 38 other countries to fight global terrorism. Still this minority controlled mainstream Media is dictating; Americans must elect a President with no character, convictions, vision & understanding of economy!

There is a saying “in the Land of the Blind, the one-eyed is a Queen!” The fact is main three Democrat contenders are all first term Senators & Attorneys with no experience in foreign relations and economy. No one has ever run a corner store, has put a corner stone in their back yard or run even small town as its Mayor. They want to run the biggest enterprises of the world with $3 trillion in revenue, $14 trillion in market capitalization, millions of employees, $60 trillion deficit in unfunded liabilities & trade deficit, turmoil in financial markets and unprecedented threats from the Islamic Jihadist to destabilize America & the world.

One an Ambulance Chaser (Trial Attorney) with very good oratory skills thinks Presidency of America is just like appearing in front of Trial Judge with tutored client pretending to be in pain with the support of maverick Doctors to extract public money. One with crafty literary help & mobster Tony Rezko’s money wants Americans to elects him President by believing in his re-invented story of regained Christianity “A born again Christian” and they must forget his vast inexperience and his presence only in Illinois State Senate rather than yes or no at the time of voting on important issues. Third favorite Darling of every one in Media, Wall Street & Hollywood with powerful Money Machine lubricated by the likes of fugitive racketeers & swindlers Marc Rich & Dr Sabharwal, Norman Hsu, Sant Singh Chatwal, Vinod Gupta, Pharmaceutical, Health Insurance, Defense contractors etc. all tied to major league creeps.

None of them can be trusted to deal competently with any future crisis over Iran or Middle East or Terrorism and present biggest financial mess. None of them are likely to evoke any respect from world Leaders especially Middle East.

Like womanizer governor Jon Corzine of New Jersey; Hillary Clinton, the one eyed queen wants to capitalize on HCL; Hispanic, Conservatives and Liberals with her fake extreme make over character being supported by her womanizer husband. She lacks core convictions, morality, ethics, character and is not afraid at all to misrepresent or speak half truths or complete lies. Under conservative mask HRC is a ruthless, emotionless, characterless & dangerously over ambitious reincarnation of Prime Minister of India “Indra Gandhi” who took India towards caste war, poverty & state sponsored massive corruption in the name of social engineering, which ultimately resulted in creating the biggest population of $800 million poor in India; out of which 300 million people are below poverty line making less than $2 a day that also include biggest army of 80 million child labor. Under her understanding of Hurricane Relief plan; Hillary Clinton pushed for $75 million for counseling in the wake of Hurricane Katrina-for the residents of New York!

One time Media favorite front runner former Democrat, Republican Rudy Giuliani at the time of crisis during 9/11 did behaved like a Leader but that was Mayor of NY with bipartisan unprecedented help from Federal & State Governments, help from every nook & corner of America from every American and the entire world. When electing a President voters always look for candidates own proven record not the mass assisted record. Rudy still has to define Character of 6 marriages; 3 of his own & 3 of his current spouse, his relationship with his children who are not even on talking terms with him, his security expanses with Tax Payers dollars for visits to his paramour in Hampton when they were paying for the security of his wife and his nomination of a corrupt Bernard Kirk as Home Land Security Chief; who is facing indictment for bribery & other charges; all unassisted decisions!

At the same time Media was projecting Fred Thompson as Conservative Republican’s likely choice over Giuliani to get Party nomination, when he was not even in the Race. One Term Senator who never raised an important issue and never answer a serious question in Senate. A man with a trophy wife 25 years younger than him who is of his daughter's age is a passionate conservative! A man for more than a decade out of politics making his living as an actor and campaigning in a convicted drug dealers Jet; makes him genius in American Economy and World Diplomacy!

Media Sycophants were comparing Thompson with conservative statesman & a visionary Ronald Reagan who laid the foundations for Rich & Wealthy America, responsible for crushing defeat to communism and break up of communist Russia. Media was not telling the public that Ronald Reagan became President after 2 unsuccessful bids for nomination and two successful terms as governor of California; the 5th largest economy of the world and the largest economy among 50 US states. Ronald Reagan also holds the distinction of being the only California governor to become the President of the United States of America.

Confused liberals under the mask of conservatives are planning to put up a Michael Bloomberg as Independent candidate for President, if their favorite one eyed Queen Hillary Clinton fails to get Democrat Party nomination. A womanizer who keeps paying undisclosed amounts for settling illicit affairs like his filthy rich friend Gov Jon Corzine of New Jersey who paid $6 million to Labor Union Leader Carla Katz. It is not clear who is the Role Model for whom; Corzine ended his marriage of 25 years and Bloomberg dumped his wife after 19 years, both to become free wild sex birds. With questionable character, morals and sinister plans Bloomberg wants to govern America with 300 million people, where 80% of them still consider Religion & Character is a very important part of their lives!

This is the same Michael Bloomberg who used to be a Democrat; to become Mayor of New York may have bribed the local Republicans thru a middleman called Rudy Giuliani another former Democrat. In March 2007 Bloomberg resigned from Republican Party declared himself an Independent. Since than he is on a Tour of America with his paid paramours and Bloomberg Radio & TV clout giving out Future President like stump speeches. He wants to be a another Ross Perot who took 19% votes in 1992 to defeat George Bush to make way for a womanizer Bill Clinton's Presidency. Looking at his shady character and Democrat’s expertise in rigging elections he is hoping the Democrat controlled House of Representatives will render a favorable verdict in his or any other Democrat including vastly inexperienced Barack Obama's favor if any Candidates failed to win the necessary 270 votes in the Electoral College.

Recently some crazy liberals have mooted the idea of Bloomberg-Gore Ticket because Gore got Noble Peace prize for which entire world is still shocked and desperately searching for answers; why Al Gore got this Noble Peace Prize?

Only 2 of the Presidential candidates have Character, Honesty, Convictions, Executive experience, understand Economy, reasons of economic down turn, international trade & crafty debt derivatives. Both of them have been Governors of totally Blue states Arkansas & Massachusetts. Popularly got elected with Democrat votes underscores their popularity among Republicans and Democrats alike. That makes both of them True Leaders acceptable to all.

Mike Huckabee a southern Baptist Minister is a very religious person with over 10 yrs as Arkansas Governor is a very able administrator with understanding of economy and public service. Since 1992 Huckabee has fought 3 proxy wars with Clinton’s massive money machines and successfully defeated their nominees on their home turf by getting Democrat votes to become governor of Arkansas.

But it is Mitt Romney who is a hugely successful proven business Leader, insider of US & Int’l financial markets, fairly successful Governor & a Political Leader, successful husband & father and a religious person; who stands much taller than Huckabee. In the best interest of America Mike should put his ego aside and must accept Romney is better qualified to deal with present crisis and he can be a good team as Vice President with Mitt Romney. They can be a formidable team and will go down in the history as one of the best Team, American’s ever had.

Huckabee rather than listening to his three times married National Campaign Chairman ultra liberal Ed Rollins listen to his own Christian preaching. Ed Rollins is the wonder kid of Reagan era who helped him for his re-election in 1984 to win 49 states. Then in 1992 same Ed betrayed the Republicans by joining Ross Perot to help Clinton to get elected to the White House without the popular votes. Then Ed wrote a scathing, expletive ridden book with negative and destructive commentary on Republican officials and Republicans across America. It has become a major puzzle why a conservative Mike Huckabee is in the company of a ultra radical Liberal with questionable loyalty and confused ideology? Why the conservative Republican’s have not reacted to this unholy alliance?

Media is scared to discuss Romney’s all round fair achievements as compared to others in the field. Rather than discussing real Leader with a proven track record of hard work, experience, intelligence & character, under Semitism they are trashing him 24/7 for being a Mormon. As if elected he will force every one to convert to Mormon. This is the same Media who never raised any objections when a Mormon Democrat Harry Reid became Senate Majority Leader.

We all know America was founded by its founding fathers a nation without an endorsed religion. In the words of Hon. Franklin D Roosevelt spoken in 1940: “We must remember that any oppression, any injustice, any hatred is a wedge designed to attack our civilization.” In other words this minority controlled majority mainstream Media is attacking our Civilization & our Founding Fathers by attacking the Religion of a Mormon & by attacking the very need for a Character and high Moral standards for the office of President of United States of America.

If British can twice elect a Jew Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli in 19th century (Feb. 1868 to Dec 1868 & Feb 1874 to April 1880) & majority Hindu nation India can appoint a Parsi Sam Maneckshaw (1962- 73) & a Jew Jack Jacob (1970-78) as its Chief of Army, Field Marshal and Army Generals in 20th century, why we are discussing especially the ultra radical liberals and evangelical Christians at CNN, CBS & NBC; the Religion, Race and Gender in 21st century? Are we backward or a Racist society? We will not be the first nation in the world; if a Woman or American African or Mormon becomes President. Why not a Mormon with fairly good character and understanding of economy & domestic problems as President of America?

God Bless America

Minority controlled Ultra Liberal Media has become King Maker in America and calling the shots who should be the next Democrat who will be crowned President of America. By projecting the worst Republicans initially Rudy Giuliani with 6 marriages & friends with Mafia connections who was replaced by Fred Thomson with trophy wife 25 years younger than him & convicted drug dealer friends and now he is replaced by John McCain who dumped his wife for a younger woman and in the name of economy his understanding is Bomb, Bomb & Bomb to make sure a Democrat becomes the President.

This is the same John McCain who has been running his Presidential Campaign for last 8 years and whose Grand Funeral was organized by this Media last year to promote Rudy Giuliani and Fred Thompson for Republican nomination. Now John McCain’s body has been exhumed from the grave put to life with steroids to enhance his abilities to make bigger lies on Live Television to be nominated for Republican nomination ultimately to give the election to Democrats a party under siege of Israeli & other vested interests from Wall Street, Media, Hollywood etc.

Democrats rather than caring for American public are more focused on having 1St ultra radical female who lacks core conviction & character, experienced in selling Presidential Pardons only Hillary Clinton or first African American with vast inexperience, slum lord’s money, present only record in Legislature rather than Yes or No vote, a born again Christian minted with crafty literary help Barrack Obama to be the President and Commander in Chief of America.

Media does not want American public to understand that Government is a serious business and must be run as such. The Debates are like Circuses more focused on atmosphere, cat & dog fights between the candidates, their superficial ability to laugh, make promises which are made to be broken and how they can answer to silly questions of some moron voters from You Tube selected by clowns in the Media. Who cares who is ahead in the manipulated junk Polls, who care who beat some one in such debates? In selecting a CEO of a company no one holds a debate among the potential contenders. Instead a qualified committee would look at the character, past experience and ability to Lead of the contender; all of which is a barometer to future behavior, honesty, ability to Lead in crisis and competence is measured by candidates own proven track records.

Every one remembers except the Media that the last wide-open race came in 1952 after Harry Truman opted not to run for re-election and his vice president, Alben Barkley, bowed out because of doubts raised over his age. This Media wants a 74 year old John McCain who is not fit even to be a Veteran’s Affair Commissioner; the President & Commander in Chief of America! This Media got him endorsement from his 95 year old mother on prime time, who told the audience my sucker son who dumped his first wife for a younger wife will make a good President! Wow!

A candidate Mitt Romney who should be talked about by Media is being referred for last 1 year for his Mormon religion, which is irrelevant to how he would perform as President. Some bigots’ say Romney is not a Christian which is leaving behind the scene King Makers Israeli lobby in cold.

We in America tend to announce victory while still in the quarterfinal stage. The Democrats must understand it is the American Public not the Media who has to elect their President. The main challenge before the American Public is to transform our system of governance which every body admits is broken all the way from White House to borough block level. Equality before Law, equity of economic growth, internal & external security and democracy to take our society to the age of modernity and prosperity for each citizen with lower disparities in income and access to quality health care at affordable price.

World’s largest enterprise “America” employees millions of people with some $14 trillion capitalization and going through its worst financial crisis besides facing illegal immigration, terrorist threats by Islamic Jihadis; needs some one who can spell “Economy” besides having experience of Governance of a state.

Americans must remember post of the President is not an internship or on site job training and more over for White House it is no exchange no refund policy for 4 years.

Above all as per the contract for Political Reasons you can put some one in White House but can not fire that Employee for Political Reasons for 4 years!

Gov. Mitt Romney:

Gov. Willard Mitt Romney preferred to be called by his middle name.

Harvard Business & Law School Graduate turned Venture Capitalist with an eager eye for identifying future success. Most notable has been Romney’s investment in Staples, which had not yet opened its first office supply store. Founded a Venture Capital company Bain Capital in 1984 which owns companies like Staples & Marriott.

Organized successfully 2002 Winter Olympics at Salt Lake City , Utah . He was called in at the end of 1998 by Utah state leaders after scandals of bribery & projected shortfall of $397 million erupted in the Media. Romney accepted the position and asked Fraser Bullock, one of the 7 original partners of Bain Capital to become his chief operating officer. With Romney at the helm the games ended with a surplus of $56 million.

With Olympics success under his belt in 2002 Romney became the Governor of predominantly Liberal Democrat state Massachusetts on a platform of fiscal conservatism and promise to erase the state’s deficit. Romney is credited to provide Universal Health Care in Massachusetts and making it the only state in America to do so. This is the same state where in 1994 he lost Senate race to ultra liberal Ted Kennedy. He got close enough in pre election polls to give the ultra Liberal a scare. The final outcome was Kennedy’s closest race since his first election in 1962.

Gov Romney wasn’t able to accomplish all that he hoped & promised due to opposition from the overwhelmingly Democratic Legislature. For example, Romney discovered that collecting tolls on the Massachusetts Turnpike cost 30 cents for $1 collected, in part because the toll collectors Union contract, which gives the collectors an average $56,300.00 a year in wages plus $9,880.00 in benefits. The Massachusetts Legislature did not want to take the Union and lose a source of political patronage.

The fact that Massachusetts where only 13 percent of registered voters are Republican could elect Romney governor by a 5 point margin 50 vs. 45% for his Democratic opponent underscores his popularity among Republicans and Democrats alike. That makes Romney a true Leader acceptable to all.

Ann & Mitt Romney happily Married since March 21, 1969 and have successfully raised 5 sons Taggart, Matt, Josh, Benjamin & Craig and have 10 Grand Children. The family is never in news for wrong reasons. They are practicing Mormon.

Mitt is the son of 3 terms Michigan Governor George W Romney who was Chairman of American Motor Corp. Mitt was 7 when George took over the failing American Motors and introduced the concept of compact cars. George made it to the cover of Time in 1959 that described him as a “Broad-shouldered, Bible-quoting broth of a man who burns brightly with the fire of missionary zeal.”

Mitt was 15 when his father George became the Governor in a state in which no Republican had held the job in 14 years. Mitt worked the campaign switch board. At the “Romney for Governor” booths, shouting over a microphone and loudspeaker system, “You should vote for my father for Governor. He is truly a great person. You got to support him; he is going to make things better.”

In 1968 George unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination for US President. Later on became Secretary of Housing and Urban Development under President Nixon. George died on July 26, 1995, at the age of 88. He imparted deep values to family, values that the Mormon Church emphasizes-strong families, honesty, truth, giving to charity, respect for human life, hard work, and clean living.

Hillary Clinton re-incarnation of Indra Gandhi


Dear Every one, with due respect to all of you and not to hurt your feelings; Hillary Clinton can not be the President of USA despite the unprecedented feed & brain wash by minority controlled mainstream US Media & Ethnic Media in US and India. People of Indian origin and Indians are trying to outbid each other to praise Hillary Clinton including some of them calling her with all kinds of godly names including “Bhabhi Ji” (Sister-in-Law). America is not India where an idiot Devkant Barua can call “Indra is India & India is Indra” and millions of cowards kept quite to show solidarity with Indra. America will always be America with or without Hillary Clinton.

Clintons both husband & wife lacks core conviction, morality, ethics, character and are not afraid at all to misrepresent or speak half truths or complete lies. Hillary Clinton can never get Elected as President of America because it will be the reincarnation of ruthless, characterless and dangerously ambitious with a desire to kill or get any one killed who dares to ask for accountability; "Indra Gandhi" who was no match to her husband a thorough gentleman Feroz Gandhi.

In Hillary's case we have a Bill Clinton equally slippery character who can cheat on his wife and to lie under oath while he was President of USA. Ex-President Bill Clinton attorney by profession gave 457 Pardons vs. 117 given by President George Bush so far during his presidency. Shamelessly Clinton gave 140 Pardons in closing hours of his presidency which includes Full Pardon to fugitive Democrat Financier Marc rich. It was done on the Application of Rich’s ex-wife, a major contributor to Clinton Campaign and Clinton Library. Financier Democrat Rich was indicted in 1983 on charges of evading $48 million in Taxes, 51 counts of Tax frauds and having illegal oil deals with Iran during Hostage crisis. Rich had fled to Switzerland and had been living there for 17 years till President/Attorney Clinton released him from all Legal Jeopardy!

President Clinton also bailed out Indian Hotelier (hotels with slush money of Indian Federal Ministers) Sant Singh Chatwal from Indian authorities for Tax & Bank Frauds, from US IRS & New York City’s claim of $9 million in unpaid Taxes & $12 million claim of FDIC for unpaid Loans which was settled for $125,000.00. Another Indian Vinod Gupta of INFO USA who is being investigated by Iowa Attorney General for selling names of elderly Americans to known con Artists; flew Clinton’s to a vacation in Acapulco on his company Jet paid more than $2 million in consulting Fees to Bill Clinton and also gave $1 million to his Foundation. Both Gupta & Chatwal are on the Board of Clinton Foundation.

Then a frequent travel companion and long time fundraiser of Clintons & NY Senator Chuck Schumer with Indian Passport Dr P Singh Sabharwal of SAAB group is absconding to India. Home Land Security & Justice Dept. in USA is looking for him for serious Mortgage/financial, Bank, Identity and other Frauds. Like his good friend Sant Chatwal; Dr Sabharwal was also bailed out from the clutches of Indian authorities chasing him for financial frauds by Clintons which opened the way for Dr Sabharwal to re-enter India after more than a decade.

Bill Clinton during Monica Lewinsky trial tried to obstruct justice and lied under oath. President Clinton said he had not violated the sixth commandment. But whose sixth commandment? To Roman Catholics and Lutherans, it is the No-Adultery Commandment. But to Jews and Members of Orthodox and Reformed Churches, Clinton was saying, “He hadn’t murdered or killed respectively.” What punishment Clinton got? Just a slap on the wrist; his License to Practice Law was suspended! After that also Ex-Attorney/President Clinton was very defiant in an interview and said, “if the sex is not consummated, it is not sex.” That is the reason I made the statement (under oath), “I never had sex with that (Jewish) woman (Monica Lewinsky). Can any one say this man has character, honesty, moral & ethical values?

Coming back to Hillary Clinton, the Firebrand writer Camille Pagalia says Hillary Clinton “has no vision and can’t win general election against any of the leading Republican candidates. She has a powerful machine. There’s an over-clever, over-conceptualized political personality there who has trouble being an ordinary person. She is essentially a policy wonk. She has no vision. Then there’s the sense of her espousing feminist ideals on the one hand, but also tolerating gross exploitation and insult from her womanizing husband.”

Hillary Clinton is a slippery character with lots of money to spend and a penchant for avoiding truth. For 8 years in White House she was running her own Agenda; plotting & scheming to get filthy rich by arranging Pardons to fugitives like Marc Rich, helping criminals like Norman Hsu, Sant Chatwal, Dr sabharwal, quasi-criminals like Vinod Gupta and by writing her memoirs full of lies that too in violation of Time Rules for such memoirs. Like her husband she also takes campaign money from swindlers like Sant Singh Chatwal, Vinod Gupta, Dr P Singh Sabharwal, Norman Hsu, Pharmaceutical companies, Health Insurance etc all tied to major league creeps. Till Nov 3rd, 2006 Hillary was happy, “to be a New York Senator and collected more than $51 million for her re-election to US Senate. After winning her election she came up with a statement that she had spent $37.5 million (on cats & dogs of her supporters) on a non-existent challenger and now she wants to be the President of America!

If any one recalls what the Founding Father of this nation Hon. George Washington said in his farewell address on Sep. 17, 1796 to both houses of Congress, "Of all dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. Where is the security of property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation deserts?"

Do you think the founder of Democrat Party Hon. George Washington will ever vote for Hillary Clinton for even Party Nomination leave aside to be the President of America?

In America a person may become a quasi-criminal like Bill Clinton after getting elected to the White House but in over 200 years of our History; we Americans have never elected a quasi-criminal with no character, ethics & moral as President of America.

God Bless America .

Democratic Fundraiser Norman Hsu Indicted on Federal Fraud Charges
Norman Hsu Accused Of Cheating Investors, Making Illegal Donations to Clinton, Others

Tuesday, December 04, 2007
Associated Press

(AP) A federal grand jury on Tuesday indicted Norman Hsu, a top Democratic fundraiser and former fugitive accused of cheating investors of at least $20 million and using some of the money to make illegal donations to political candidates including Hillary Rodham Clinton

In the 15-count indictment returned in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, the government accused the 56-year-old clothing-industry entrepreneur of duping investors nationwide with a massive Ponzi scheme.

The government said Hsu also violated federal campaign finance laws by making contributions to various political candidates in the names of others. A message left with a lawyer for Hsu was not immediately returned.

Federal prosecutors said Hsu hoped his lavish campaign contributions would help draw money to his scheme by raising his public profile. To achieve his aims, prosecutors said, Hsu pressured many of his victims to contribute thousands of dollars to various candidates for president and Congress.
Hsu was once a valued supporter of Clinton, raising more than $1.2 million for her and other Democratic candidates in recent years. He turned into a scandal when it was revealed he had been hiding from the law in plain sight.

He had been wanted in California since 1992, when he fled after pleading no contest to grand theft charges in a fraudulent clothing import business. He posted $2 million bail in August, and his lawyer said his fugitive status was just a misunderstanding. But Hsu missed a court date Sept. 5, fled by train and was arrested at a Colorado hospital after attempting suicide.

Hsu's work on Clinton's behalf has been an embarrassment for her presidential campaign, which has returned more than $800,000 to donors whose contributions were linked to him.

The indictment said Hsu from 2000 through August 2007 convinced his victims to invest at least $60 million in companies that supposedly extended short-term financing to businesses.

It said Hsu used the money instead to further his fraudulent aims, sometimes paying the large interest gains he had promised to those who had invested earliest in the scheme. Prosecutors said he eventually cheated the investors out of at least $20 million.

The government said he broke election laws by reimbursing donors to federal candidates in 2005, 2006 and 2007. The indictment said Hsu asked individuals to make contributions totaling more than $25,000 to designated federal candidates and then reimbursed them from his fraud proceeds. Federal election law requires that donors give their own money, for which they cannot be repaid; in addition, an individual can only give up to $25,000 in total contributions to federal candidates in a calendar year.

U.S. Attorney Michael Garcia has said there was no evidence that the campaigns were aware of the scheme or acted criminally. He said the Clinton campaign was cooperating with the investigation.

Hsu faces six counts of mail fraud, six counts of wire fraud and three counts of violating the Federal Election Campaign Act.

If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison on each of the mail and wire fraud charges, and five years on each of the federal campaign finance charges. He also could face millions of dollars in fines.

Hsu is in custody in California on unrelated charges and was expected to appear in federal court in Manhattan in several weeks, prosecutors said.

Clinton campaign returning $850,000 in donations
By JoAnne Allen
ReutersTuesday, September 11, 2007; 12:01 AM

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Hillary Clinton is returning about $850,000 in campaign contributions from a fundraiser who was arrested last week after trying to escape sentencing on a decade-old criminal charge, the campaign said on Monday.

"In light of recent events and allegations that Mr. Norman Hsu engaged in an illegal investment scheme, we have decided out of an abundance of caution to return the money he raised for our campaign," spokesman Howard Wolfson said in a statement.

The campaign is refunding about $850,000 to some 260 donors this week, Wolfson said.
The Washington Post characterized the refund as one of the largest in political history.
Hsu was convicted of fraud in 1992. He had evaded authorities for years, spending time in Asia before emerging in recent years in the United States as a generous donor to Democrats, including Clinton presidential rival Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois .

FBI agents arrested Hsu on federal charges of unlawful flight on Thursday evening at a Grand Junction , Colorado , hospital. He had failed to appear at a hearing in California on Wednesday.
"Hsu donated to numerous charities and more than two dozen candidates and committees. Despite conducting a thorough review of public records, our campaign, like these others, were unaware of Mr. Hsu's decade-plus-old warrant," Wolfson said.

Wolfson said the campaign was tightening its vetting procedures for fundraisers who solicit donations, including criminal background checks, to guard "against this type of situation in the future."

California Attorney General Jerry Brown's office said last week that Hsu would be returned to the state to face sentencing for his conviction arising from a business scheme that bilked about 20 investors of approximately $1 million.

When Controversy Follows Cash

Some Fundraisers With Legal Issues Slip Through Campaigns' Vetting

By John Solomon and Matthew Mosk, Washington Post Staff WritersMonday, September 3, 2007; Page A01

Sant Singh Chatwal, an Indian American businessman, has helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaigns, even as he battled governments on two continents to escape bankruptcy and millions of dollars in tax liens.

The founder of the Bombay Palace restaurant chain, Chatwal is one of a growing number of fundraisers in the 2008 presidential campaign whose backgrounds have prompted questions about how much screening the candidates devote to their "bundlers" while they press to raise record amounts.

Chatwal's case reached from his native India to New York City. The IRS pursued him for approximately $4 million in unpaid business taxes, while New York state placed a lien seeking more than $5 million in taxes. He forfeited a building to New York City on which he was delinquent on property taxes and was sued by federal regulators seeking to recoup millions of dollars in loans from a failed bank where he served as a director.

Across the ocean, three Indian banks forced him into U.S. bankruptcy, and he was charged with bank fraud. He was out on bond when he showed up in India in 2001 during a visit by his longtime friend Bill Clinton.

Yet none of the legal and financial woes -- occasionally touched on in American or Indian newspapers or highlighted by political opponents -- raised red flags inside Hillary Clinton's fundraising operation. Chatwal recently said he plans to help raise $5 million from Indian Americans for Clinton 's presidential bid.

Asked whether anything in Chatwal's background caused concerns about his activities on behalf of the campaign, Clinton spokesman Phil Singer answered, "No." He declined last week to be more specific, saying only that major fundraisers are routinely vetted "through publicly available records."

Rajen Anand, a longtime friend of Chatwal and another Clinton fundraiser, said the campaign encourages strict vetting for fundraisers. "They advise me to be very careful not to associate the campaign with people where there is something wrong," he said.

Anand said, however, that Chatwal may have slid through any vetting, no matter how vigorous, because of his longtime friendship with the Clintons . The Clintons maintained a close association with Chatwal; both attended one of his sons' weddings in 2002, and the former president attended another son's wedding in 2006.

While Chatwal raised money for Hillary Clinton's Senate and presidential campaigns and Bill Clinton's charitable efforts, he settled the regulatory and tax cases one by one, mostly by working out plans to pay portions of the debts. He resolved the last of them this spring.

"The man came to this country, accumulated an empire, lost it during the time of real estate [softness], and has struggled and worked to try to pay off his debts," said A. Mitchell Greene, Chatwal's lawyer for 25 years. "It has been a long battle, but he has cleared up all of his obligations, and in the process he is trying to accumulate his wealth again."

Ordinarily, campaigns have their legal, finance or research staffs run the names of major fundraisers -- also called "bundlers" because they deliver checks to candidates in bunches -- through public records such as newspaper clips, court filings and government databases to identify problems. Some controversies still slip through.

Former senator John Edwards (D-N.C.) faced such questions last week when federal prosecutors in Michigan indicted Geoffrey Fieger, the lawyer famous for defending assisted-suicide advocate Jack Kevorkian, accusing him of channeling $127,000 in illegal contributions into Edwards's 2004 presidential campaign. Edwards's aides said, and prosecutors confirmed, that the activity was concealed from Edwards and that the candidate cooperated once he learned of problems.

Similarly, Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) gave to charity more than $30,000 in donations from Illinois fundraiser Antoin "Tony" Rezko and his associates after Rezko was indicted in a federal corruption case. "We do our best to go through the hundreds of thousands of people who give to make sure there aren't problems," Obama spokesman Bill Burton said. "I wouldn't say it's a perfect process, but we are as vigilant as possible."

On Friday, another major 2008 Clinton fundraiser generated fresh headlines: Norman Hsu surrendered to authorities in San Mateo, Calif., on an outstanding warrant in a 15-year-old California criminal case involving allegations of grand theft. A judge ordered him held on $2 million bail until a hearing next week. On Wednesday, Clinton 's campaign gave to charity $23,000 in donations from Hsu himself, though not the $96,000 or more he had raised for the candidate.

The Clinton campaign relied on the businessman to raise money and said it had no way of knowing about the warrant, which was not listed in publicly accessible records.

Chatwal, after making his millions in the restaurant business, saw his fortunes sour when he began dabbling in New York real estate just as the market softened.

He was forced into bankruptcy in 1995 by three Indian banks that claimed he owed them millions from business loans. During the 1990s, the IRS and New York City and state tax authorities also pursued liens, and Chatwal worked out deals to pay them back. When the rents from one apartment building he bought no longer covered the real estate taxes, Chatwal turned over the building to New York City to resolve a reported $2 million tax lien, his lawyer said.

In 1997, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. sued Chatwal over his role as a director and a guarantor of unpaid loans at the failed First New York Bank for Business. The government alleged that his loans had "resulted in losses to the bank in excess of $12 million," and it questioned his claims that he could not repay the debts.

The regulators also questioned why Chatwal continued to rent a spacious penthouse apartment in New York in the midst of his financial turmoil. "The debtor has managed to continue living in luxurious style in the same penthouse apartment he resided in at a time he claimed a net worth of tens of millions of dollars without adequate explanation of how his family's limited income is able to support such a lifestyle," the government said in a 1997 filing.

In September 2000, Chatwal hosted a half-million dollar fundraiser at that Upper East Side penthouse for Hillary Clinton's Senate campaign. A few months later the FDIC abruptly settled the case, agreeing on Dec. 18, 2000, to let Chatwal pay $125,000 for the loans that it had said caused at least $12 million in losses. (closing hours of Bill Clinton Presidency, Bush had already been declared Elected)

Greene, Chatwal's lawyer, said he believed that the actual losses caused by the loans were smaller but agreed that the bankruptcy resulted in a much smaller settlement. "He fully intended to pay the bank until the Indian banks involuntarily forced him into bankruptcy," Greene said.

The lawyer also said there was nothing wrong with Chatwal raising political money even as he worked to clear up the legal and financial matters. "I see no reason why an individual cannot support a political campaign in which he believes," Greene said.

Just as Chatwal's U.S. cases were being resolved, Indian authorities in December 2000 charged him with bank fraud. On April 30, 2001, he appeared in a Mumbai court and posted a $32,000 bond, according to court officials there. Chatwal was not under travel restrictions, though, and he went back to New York .

He returned to India a month later and made headlines in Indian newspapers by appearing with Bill Clinton during a visit with earthquake victims. The trip was underwritten by the American India Foundation, where Chatwal's son was a board member. Aides to the former president said Chatwal was one of about 100 members of the Clinton delegation. Eventually, Indian authorities "discharged" Chatwal from the bank case and closed the matter, Greene said.

Chatwal's allegiance to the Clintons never wavered. Earlier this year, he promised to raise $5 million for Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential bid, creating a group called Indian Americans for Hillary 2008. Donors who gathered at least $25,000 were promised a "private VIP meeting" with the candidate, fundraising letters show.

Ex- Governor of New Jersey, Gay Jim McGreevy installed his Gay ISRAELI paramour who has no work authorization/Green Card, in Home Land Security for a six figure salary. Installed another paramour a Green Mailer from Indian community Rajesh "Rojer" Chug as Dy Governor who had all kinds of fundraising abilities, selling building permits as well as arranging the company of minors for his boss/paramour. Then McGreevy squandered $22 billions in School Construction and put the state in a deep hole by over $100 billions in debt. Both McGreevy and Chugh were never prosecuted by the minority Democrat Jewish Rulers of New Jersey rather Chugh has become a frequent Globe trotting flier and Jim has been rewarded to teach "ETHICS" at Kean University!

Ex-President Bill Clinton attorney by profession gave 457 Pardons vs. 117 given by President George Bush so far. Shamelessly Clinton gave 140 Pardons in closing hours of his presidency which includes Full Pardon to fugitive Democrat Financier Marc Rich.

Rich had fled to Switzerland and had been living there for 17 years till President/Attorney Clinton released him from all Legal Jeopardy. Very few people knows it, Lewis "Scooter" Libby was the attorney who represented fugitive Marc Rich later pardoned by Clinton. Patrick Fitzgerald, Libby's present prosecutor, was part of the prosecution team in the Rich case. May be it is time for Patrick to settle scores?

President/Attorney Clinton bailed out Indian Hotelier (Hotels with slush money from Indian Federal Ministers) Sant Singh Chatwal from Tax evasions/liabilities running into millions. Chatwal paid to IRS may be little over $200,000 and rest to.... (Clinton's). The Clinton's both husband wife lacks core conviction and are not afraid at all to misrepresent or to speak out half truths as well as complete lies. Till Nov. 3, 2006 Hillary was happy "to be New York Senator" and collected more than $51 millions for her re-election to US Senate. After winning her re-election came a statement from her she spends $37.5 million on a non-existent challenger and now she wants to be the President of America! Bill on the other hand during Monica Lewinsky trial tried to obstruct justice and lied under oath. President Clinton said he had not violated the sixth commandment. But whose sixth commandment? To Roman Catholics and Lutherans, it is the No-Adultery Commandment. But to Jews and Members of Orthodox and Reformed Churches, Clinton was saying, "He hadn't murdered or killed respectively. What punishment Clinton got? He lost his license to Practice Law! After that also Ex-Attorney Clinton was very defiant in an interview and said, "If the sex is not consummated, it is not sex. That is the reason I made a statement, "I never had sex with that (Jewish?) woman Monica Lewinsky!

Although I am not an attorney but I am at loss to understand, "how can Libby be guilty of obstruction of justice when there is no underlying crime? It was some one else who disclosed the identity of CIA covert agent Valerie Palme Wilson. I am not a big fan of Bush or Chenny or Libby or the tail waggling Democrat Republicans of New Jersey living off the crumbs thrown to them by Democrats, "Do you think it is equal Justice?"

Sant singh Chatwal will be the next sectretary of state under Hillary Clinton! so dont comment about him

(dont use my name anyway)

There is another Indian Weekly "India Post" whose editor Ms. N C Srirekha says, "Peter Kothari (a swindler & a big time thief stealing from community) is my Leader."


Dear George, Thanks for the advise. I believe charity starts from home and more over I don't believe in Selective Enforcement of Law and in the Law breakers. Same way I can not be selective in exposing criminals, quasi-criminals and political goons. I have been criticizing Minority Jewish Rulers of New Jersey so what makes you think I will not criticize individuals from my own community who are involved in questionable deals and have dubious back ground with questionable credentials?

These few rich brain wreck with shady backgrounds and few lunatic swindlers controlling all the religious, cultural, media and business organizations from my community who thinks, "Getting Photographed with Local Politicians is called Politics & service to the community, must understand this can not continue forever."

Common wisdom says it is only legal if it is ethical but unfortunately Attorneys in America has changed it to, "Since it is legal so it is ethical." They are ruining America and time has come to bring sanity, morality and ethics back in Politics and in our Judicial system, where a political thug Corzine cannot install a Rabner in Supreme Court to sell the assets of New Jersey or a Christie Whitman can not install a Deborah Poritz in Supreme Court who can render a judgment that Politicians can borrow any amount and they don't need the permission of the voters by putting it on ballot paper.

We live in such a culture of celebrity, unless celebrities say it, you can't get the message out. We are in cultural, ethical and moral crisis that has made misuse of Public Offices by Elected & Appointed individuals not only tolerable, acceptable, glamorous but marketable.

Unfortunately we don't have George Washington or Abraham Lincoln or Mahatama Gandhi or Martin Luther King or Dr. Ambedkar to tell us what we are doing is morally and ethically dead wrong by supporting individuals for Public Offices with questionable credentials and dubious past.

Trust me George, we Americans are not yet ready to install criminals in the White House. That is some thing else some individuals have committed crimes after entering White House.

The people who are very close to me can tell you I have never lost a Election bet since 1977 whether for India or UK or USA. Hillary Clinton can never become President of USA, so stop living in Fool's Paradise. Stop others also for whom you care not to believe in this kind of lies.

If the Manmohan Singh Gov in India is also thinking what you are saying they will fall flat on their faces in heap of garbage. May be Congress has not learned any thing from UP election against Mayawati despite their star campaigners Sonia Gandhi, Rahul, Priyanka, Sharoof Khan, Manmohan Singh, Laloo Yadav, Govinda etc etc, still they lost miserably.

with best regards,

P.S. Read the First Amendment: Freedom of Free Speech tell the owners of your news paper, start printing "Real News" with a moto Service to mankind and Glory to God.

It is very pathetic that we have completely forgotten the art of “Giving”. Every one of us wants to give money to those organizations with track record of stealing & mismanaging public funds just to get cheap publicity. People of our community especially in America brag about adopting a child whom they will never see or meet and giving money to known questionable characters for holding Circuses like India Day Parade, Gujarat Chalo, Akali BJP victory celebration etc. When you ask them “your entire family including distant relatives must be very rich in India, is that the reason you are throwing money for unworthy causes?” They have no answer. The truth is if they help their own relatives to bring up their standard of living at par to their own it will not be published in any news paper! If they help less fortunate from their own community living in USA, this will also be not published in any newspapers. A Sudhir Parikh can bribe Indian government official’s couple of hundred thousand dollars to get nonsense Pravasi Bhartiya Award and can pay thousands to any Tom Dick Harry to be seen on the Dias of every event in the town. That is besides the point he can not speak one line in any language and will never give a penny to any one in distress from the community.

Coming to Multi Million Dollar Circuses like India Day Parade, Gujarat Chalo, International Hindi Diwas, honoring corrupt Politicians from India under the Banner of overseas friend of Congress, BJP, Akalidal and latest is Mayawati’s Bhaujan Samaj Party; have we ever thought what good it is providing to the less fortunate in our community living in USA? These organizers can not raise the issue of community members brutalized by Police under racial bias that too after being handcuffed. They can not raise thee issue of a woman scientist murdered at a high security water treatment plant in New Jersey. They can not raise the issue why Indians were called cockroaches, animals, illiterates and illegal go home by Racist Police Union.

We have spent more than $7 Billion on Temples & Gurudwaras in USA with perpetual Presidents & Managing committees where a 4 yr old and a 7 yr old can not be provided a roof on their heads. A 23 yr old Medical student can be told by a Hardyal Singh defecto owner of Dashmesh Durbar; since she is Gujarati her leaders must come for a meeting with his members, then his members will have their own meeting whether she can be provided any help. Most pathetic is our Gurudwaras are for Lubhanas, Paphey, Ramgarias same is Temples are for Arya Samaji’s, South Indians, Gujaratis or Bengalis etc. none of them are for Hindus or any human being who wants to believe in them.

If we don’t want to understand Srimad Bhagwat Geeta or Ramayan or Sri Gurugranth Sahib or The Bible or the Holy Kuran, can we learn something from humans like Rockefeller, Carnegie, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett to start Scholarships for the less fortunate students, homes for senior citizens, home for youth with personal problems and homes for battered women to start with for our own community living in America. Later on expanding these facilities to all Americans. We must educate our people that charity starts from home, adopt a child or a family among your own relatives in USA or India and try to bring their standard of living matching to your own life style.
