On Friday September 13th, Al-Qaeda's leader Ayman al-Zawahiri called upon Muslims to strike inside the United States, with big attacks or small, using any opportunity they can to "bleed" America financially. Basically a call for ‘lone-wolf’’ actions by any who supported Al-Qaeda's goals and objectives – specifically the destruction of the American Economy.
High on that list of objectives set down by Osama Bin Laden was the destruction of the U.S. economy which, he declared in 2004, would be accomplished by "bleeding America to the point of bankruptcy." Bin Laden also said, "We, alongside the mujahedeen, bled Russia for 10 years until it went bankrupt and was forced to withdraw in defeat." Therefore he knew, what had worked in 1980 would probably still work two decades later.
Two and a half years later, in 2006, the Financial Times warns "Investors hasten exit from US Treasury bills amid default fears"brought on by Bush’s “War on Terror” causing America to hemorrhage money – not to get Bin Laden, but to kill his enemy – an enemy of al-Qaeda and all Islamic terrorist –Saddam Hussein.
Of significance to this plan and its effectiveness is the fact that George W Bush declared, on 13 March 2002, "I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority." Of the man who was successfully bleeding the American economy, Bush added "I am truly not that concerned about him." Bush was far more concerned with killing the man that Bin Laden wanted dead – neither the American economy, nor the global economic superiority of America was of no importance to him, or the Republicans.
Bush had gone from declaring “Wanted DEAD or ALIVE” on 13 September 2001, to “Who cares, he’s not relevant” and he did so in exactly six months. Where were the Tea Party and Republicans?
Did they make the slightest effort to defend the American economy, or did they start OUTSOURCING jobs … thus protecting their wealth by removing it from the influence of their action, or inaction?
On 2 May 2011, in Abbottabad, Pakistan, the Obama administration killed Bin Laden – who, we discover, was living in luxury, and NOT as Bush wanted us to believe, in a cave with either and open or closed door. LUXURY within eyesight and shouting distance of Bush supported military – Bin Laden could watch the military from his roof … and Bush could not find him … he was irrelevant.
Two years ago, in the spring of 2011, Paul O'Neill, Treasury Secretary under George W. Bush, warned us that, “The people who are threatening not to pass the debt ceiling are our version of al Qaeda terrorists. Really. They're really putting our whole society at risk by threatening to round up 50 percent of the members of the Congress, who are loony, who would put our credit at risk."
In 2009, according to bin Laden's math, each $1 al Qaeda has spent on strikes has cost the United States $1 million in economic fallout and military spending, including emergency funding for Iraq and Afghanistan. Bin Laden boasted that "As for the size of the economic deficit, it has reached record astronomical numbers.” Al-Qaeda was still achieving, and expanding, its objectives.
Now we come to September 2013. Knowing they are going to push the nation into Shutdown and toward the brink of Default – toward the goal set forth by Bin Laden and echoed by Ayman al-Zawahiri two weeks earlier, the Republican controlled House Rules Committee changes the Rules – during a shutdown ONLY the Republican Speaker of the House will be allowed to ask for a vote – floor member are denied the right they normally have.
Twelve Days after Ayman al-Zawahiri called for personal attacks on the American economy, Senator Ted Cruz is on his feet and talking for 21 hours straight – But he said nothing … he was setting the stage for closing America and costing the nation $24 Billion. Cruz had found a way to follow the dictate set down by Bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri.
For Ted Cruz and the Tea Party, the deficit and pending economic default were less important than reading Dr. Seuss and talking about Star Wars, so that they would be part of the historical House Congressional Record. Also in the talk was his hatred of providing medical care to the poor – a most delightful anti-Christ stance from someone whose supporters include alleged Christians. … Think in terms of “Saint Paul’s Joke” … the those who come in the name of Jesus, but who Jesus states he will disown.
Ever notice, Ted Cruz, the al-Qaeda Senate leader, has a striking resemblance to Bill Murray. But his hate for America, and love of following al-Qaeda, is not funny.
Had America gone into default, which as the final vote showed, 144 Republican Congressmen and 18 Republican Senators wanted and voted for ON THE RECORD, it is clear that Osama Bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri and their al-Qaeda network would have won a resounding victory. They would have achieved a goal which was part of the 9/11 attack. Ted Cruz, and all the 162, would have proved themselves the most revered of all al-Qaeda the operatives. @TedCruz #TedCruz @alQaeda
THE MOST HARM TO THE MOST PEOPLE
IT IS THE REPUBLICAN DOCTRINE & OBJECTIVE
ON RECORD: “Ted Cruz's still-young political action committee pulled in $797,000 during the period that included his extended C-SPAN advertorial. It's nearly twice what Cruz pulled in the quarter prior.” gee 3/4 million $$$ for 21 hours of reading a children’s story, and attempting to destroy the American place in the Global Economy... al-Qaeda support contributors pay well.
