I----meaning me, an individual, a committee of one.
Pledge----dedicate all of my worldly goods to give without self pity.
Allegiance----my love and my devotion.
To the Flag----our standard, Old Glory, a symbol of freedom. Wherever she waves, there is respect because your loyalty has given her a dignity that shouts freedom is everybody's job.
Of the United----that means that we have all come together.
States----individual communities that have united into 48 great states. 48 individual communities with pride and dignity and purpose, all divided with imaginary boundaries, yet united to a common cause, and that's love of country.
And to the Republic----a republic, a state in which sovereign power is invested in representatives chosen by the people to govern. And government is the people and it's from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people.
For which it stands!
One nation----meaning, so blessed by God.
Indivisible----incapable of being divided.
With Liberty----which is freedom and the right of power to live one's life without threats or fear or any sort of retaliation.
And justice----The principle and quality of dealing fairly with others.
For all.----which means, boys and girls, it's as much your country as it is mine."
Since I was a small boy, two states have been added to our nation, and two words have been added to the Pledge of Allegiance "under God." Wouldn't it be a pity if someone said, "That's a prayer" and that would be eliminated from schools, too?
05:20:20 MR. SPEAKER, OUR GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION IN THE ECONOMY, THE PRIVATE AFFAIRS OF CITIZENS AND THE INTERNAL AFFAIRS OF FOREIGN COUNTRIES LEADS TO UNCERTAINTY AND MANY UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES.
05:20:30 HERE ARE SOME OF THE CONSEQUENCES ABOUT WHICH WE SHOULD BE CONCERNED.
05:20:37 I PREDICT U.S. TAXPAYERS WILL PAY TO REBUILD PALESTINE, BOTH THE WEST BANK AND THE GAZA, AS WELL AS AFGHANISTAN.
05:20:47 U.S. TAXPAYERS PAID TO BOMB THESE AREAS, SO WE WILL BE EXPECTED TO REBUILD THEM.
05:20:54 PEACE OF SORTS WILL COME TO THE MIDDLE EAST, BUT WILL BE SHORT LIVED.
05:20:59 THERE WILL BE BIG PROMISES OF MORE U.S. MONEY AND WEAPONS FLOWING TO ISRAEL AND TO ARAB COUNTRIES ALLIED WITH THE UNITED STATES.
05:21:06 U.S. TROOPS AND OTHERS WILL BE USED TO MONITOR THE PEACE.
05:21:11 IN TIME, AN OIL BOYCOTT WILL BE IMPOSED WITH OIL PRICES SORRY SOARING TO HISTORIC HIGHS.
05:21:18 CURRENT ISRAELI-UNITED STATES POLICIES WILL SOLIDIFY ARAB-MUSLIM NATIONS IN THEIR EFFORT TO AVENGE THE HUMILIATION OF THE PALESTINIANS.
05:21:27 THIS WILL INCLUDE THOSE MUSLIM NATIONS THAT IN THE PAST HAVE FOUGHT AGAINST EACH OTHER.
05:21:32 SOME OF OUR MODERATE ARAB ALLIES WILL BE OVERTHROWN BY ISLAMIC FUNDAMENTALIST.
05:21:39 THE U.N. WILL CONTINUE TO CONDEMN THROUGH RESOLUTIONS ISRAELI-U.S. POLICIES IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND THEY WILL BE IGNORED.
05:21:48 SOME EUROPEAN COUNTRIES WILL CLAN TESTENLY SUPPORT THE MUSLIM COUNTRIES AND THEIR ANTI-ISRAEL PURSUITS.
05:21:57 CHINA, IRONICALLY ASSISTED BY AID, WILL SAIL THE MUSLIMS THE WEAPONS THEY WANT AND WILL ALIGN HERSELF WITH THE ARAB NATIONS.
05:22:05 THE UNITED STATES, WITH TONY BLAIR AS HEAD CHEERLEADER, WILL ATTACK IRAQ WITHOUT PROPER AUTHORITY AND A MAJOR WAR, THE LARGEST SINCE WORLD WAR II WILL RESULT.
05:22:16 MAJOR MOVES WILL BE MADE BY CHINA, INDIA, RUSSIA, AND PAKISTAN IN CENTRAL ASIA TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE CHAOS FOR THE PURPOSE OF GRABBING LAND, RESOURCES, AND STRATEGIC ADVANTAGES SOUGHT AFTER FOR YEARS.
05:22:32 THE CAR SIGH GOVERNMENT WILL FAIR O' -- THE KARZI GOVERNMENT WILL FAIL.
05:22:38 AN INTERNATIONAL DOLLAR CRISIS WILL DRAMATICALLY BOOST INTEREST RATES IN THE UNITED STATES.
05:22:42 PRICE INFLATION WITH A MAJOR ECONOMIC DOWNTURN WILL DECIMATE U.S. FEDERAL GOVERNMENT FINANCES AND UNCONTROLLED SPENDING.
05:22:53 FEDERAL RESERVE POLICY WILL CONTINUE AT AN EXPANDING RATE CREDIT EXPANSION AND THAT WILL MAKE THE DOLLAR CRISIS WORSE.
05:23:02 GOLD WILL BE SEEN AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO PAPER MONEY AS IT RETURNS TO ITS HISTORIC ROLE AS MONEY.
05:23:09 EROSION OF CIVIL RIBTS HERE AT HOME WILL CONTINUE AS OUR GOVERNMENT RESPONDS TO POLITICAL FEAR IN DEALING WITH THE TERRORIST THREAT BY MAKING USE OF THE GENEROUS USE WITH THE POWERS OBTAINED BY THE PATRIOT ACT.
05:23:22 THE DRAFT WILL BE REINSTATED CAUSING DOMESTIC TURMOIL AND RESENTMENT.
05:23:27 MANY AMERICAN PERSONNEL AND CIVILIANS WILL BE KILLED IN THE COMING CONFLICT.
05:23:30 THE LEADERS OF WHICHEVER SIDE LOSES THE WAR WILL BE HAULED INTO AND TRIED BEFORE THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT FOR WAR CRIMES.
05:23:37 THE UNITED STATES WILL NOT OFFICIALLY LOSE THE WAR, BUT NEITHER WILL WE WIN.
05:23:42 OUR MILITARY AND POLITICAL LEADERS WILL NOT BE TRIED BY THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT.
05:23:47 THE CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENT WILL SHIFT RADICALLY TOWARDS EXPANDING THE SIZE AND SCOPE OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.
05:23:54 THIS WILL SATISFY BOTH THE LIBERALS AND THE CONSERVATIVES.
05:23:57 MILITARY AND POLICE POWERS WILL GROW, SATISFYING THE CONSERVATIVES.
05:24:01 THE WELFARE STATE, BOTH DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL, WILL EXPAND, SATISFYING THE LIBERALS.
05:24:07 BOTH SIDES WILL ENDORSE MILITARY ADVENTURISM OVERSEAS.
05:24:11 THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT OF MY PREDICTIONS.
05:24:16 POLICY CHANGES COULD PREVENT ALL THE PREVIOUS PREDICTIONS FROM OCCURRING.
05:24:21 UNFORTUNATELY, THAT WILL NOT OCCUR.
05:24:24 IN DUE COURSE, THE CONSTITUTION WILL CONTINUALLY BE UNDERMINED AND THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC FURTHER WEAKENED.
05:24:30 DURING THE NEXT DECADE, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL BECOME POORER AND LESS FREE, WHILE THEY BECOME MORE DEPENDENT ON THE GOVERNMENT FOR ECONOMIC SECURITY.
05:24:40 THE WAR WILL BE -- WILL PROVE TO BE DIVISIVE WITH EMOTIONS AND HATRED GROWING BETWEEN THE VARIOUS FACTIONS AND SPECIAL INTERESTS THAT DRIVE OUR POLICIES IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
05:24:50 AGITATION FOR MORE CLASS WARFARE WILL SUCCEED IN DIVIDING US DOMESTICALLY.
05:24:57 AND BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I EXPECT LOBBYISTS WILL THRIVE MORE THAN EVER DURING THE DANGEROUS PERIOD OF CHAOS.
05:25:05 I HAVE TIMETABLE FOR THESE PREDICTIONS, BUT JUST IN CASE KEEP THEM AROUND AND LOOK AT THEM IN FIVE TO 10 YEARS.
05:25:12 LET'S HOPE AND PRAY I'M WRONG ON ALL ACCOUNTS.
05:25:14 IF SO, I WILL BE VERY PLEASED.
Prediction April 4th, 2002 It All Came True!
Nobody else predicted it!
Constitution Day September 17, 2012
In all it was a success and the people who attended where all Constitutional. The biggest surprise was Supreme Court Justice Daniel Eismann who did not take his hat off during the Pledge of Allegiance .. so disrespectful.... And he claims to be Constitutional.
