Dear Friend of America’s Survival, Inc.:


The nomination of tax cheat Timothy Geitner for Treasury Secretary is up for a full Senate vote this afternoon, Monday, January 26. The Senate switchboard number is 202-224-3121.


How can a tax cheat be taking over the Treasury Department, with jurisdiction over the IRS? The answer has nothing to do with his tax cheating, or his lying about it. Some commentator said that he could have murdered somebody and he still would be confirmed. His nomination has everything to do with his political connections to the rich and powerful. He will continue the policy of bailing out big Wall Street banks. He also has cozy connections to Communist China.


We have two special reports on Geithner. One examines the Big Money Behind Geithner. The other examines the agenda for global taxes being presented to the World Economic Forum this week. This is where everything is headed. Be sure to read it.


On Capitol Hill, some Senators have been listening to their constituents, thousands of whom have been phoning in protest over the Geithner pick.


“I cannot vote to confirm the nomination based on the record and the need to foster greater accountability in both big government and our financial institutions,” declared

Senator Charles Grassley, the top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, in making a point that should have been obvious to other members. He quoted a constituent as saying, “If the man cannot handle his own finances, how is he going to handle the country’s?”


The Committee vote was 18-5 in favor of Geithner. All 13 Democrats on the committee voted for him. Five Republicans -- Hatch, Snowe, Crapo, Ensign and Cornyn – voted for him as well.


Four members joined with Grassley in voting against Geithner. They were Senators Jon Kyl of Arizona, Jim Bunning of  Kentucky, Pat Roberts of Kansas, and Michael B. Enzi of Wyoming.


Today he comes up for a full Senate vote. His fate is in your hands.

For America's Survival,

Cliff Kincaid, President
