No Limits On Hillary Clinton Or Hillary Supporters

Shortly after midnight we read an email sent to us by Lynn Forester to comment on an earlier article we wrote about No Limits (tomorrow is the No Limits conference at which Hillary will speak at noon). We will post an extended excerpt from that email below. We will therefore postpone the article we planned to publish today regarding Item #10 from yesterday’s post.

Before we post the email, there is this appropriate article written by Daniel Henniger which others are discussing today. Henninger writes “Voters Are Desperate For Political Leadership“:

Welcome to the permanent American tea party.

You will recall how when the tea-party movement erupted during the congressional recess in August, it was spun on the left that these events were the creation of conservative ideologues. At the start, yes. By the end, though, it was about anxieties deeper than that.

The GOP is now spinning the results in Virginia and New Jersey as proof that voters are fed up with the liberal ideologues in the White House and Congress. Yes, but it’s deeper than that.

What was learned Tuesday is that the American voter is absolutely, totally, unremittingly disgusted with both political parties. More than anything, the American voter is desperate for political leadership.

That electorates in two politically significant states, led by the widening independent movement, could swing within one year from enthusiasm for electing Barack Obama to support for Virginia’s OK Republican Bob McDonnell and New Jersey’s lackluster Chris Christie is simply astonishing.

Desperate for Leadership is right.

These voters are spooked and on the run, a political stampede that veered left in November 2008 and now right a mere year later. They will keep running–crushing incumbents, candidates and political models of the left and right–through November 2010 and onto 2012 until they find a person or party capable of leadership appropriate to our unsettled times. And yes, Virginia, the possibility of a man on a white horse in 2012 is not out of the question.

The “man on a white horse” can be a woman. The “person” that is “capable of leadership appropriate to our unsettled times” is Hillary – Hillary Clinton.

Exit polls in New Jersey and Virginia said the economy was on voters’ minds. Unemployment is near 10% and may stay there for a year. But it’s deeper than that.

This isn’t just another turn in the business cycle. On Sept. 15, 2008, the economic structure of the U.S. imploded. Lehman Brothers, a synonym for the American financial bedrock, filed for bankruptcy. On June 1, 2009, General Motors, once a synonym for American economic primacy, filed for bankruptcy and was effectively nationalized. In the nine months between these two iconic events, the American people were riveted to news of economic distress.

The signal event of the 2008 presidential election was the day in September when Sen. John McCain “suspended” his campaign to deal with the financial crisis. Within 48 hours, his candidacy stood naked. Mr. McCain’s instincts were right; The American people wanted leadership. But he didn’t have a clue how to provide it. The restless herd ran toward Barack Obama.

Now they’re ready to run toward someone else. They just did in New Jersey and Virginia.

This is not normal. A new American presidency, especially this one, should not be in this much trouble 10 months into a four-year term. Nor would it be if not for the economic events that fell out of September 2008.

Henninger writes what we wrote repeatedly at the beginning of the year about the fake “stimulus” and the waste of money in what amounts to an election year slush fund for Dimocrats. At the time we wrote that some economic measures and a Hillary health care plan was what was needed, along with experienced leadership and smart and sane fiscal policy.

Instead, voters watched Congress create and pass a nearly trillion-dollar “stimulus” bill, and then erect the world’s tallest national budget–a towering $3.5 trillion. They watched the Obama Treasury, now hard-wired to the Federal Reserve, intervene massively in the structure of the private economy. There was an attempted federal climate-control bill, an attempted expansion of union organizing rights (card check) and second thoughts on free-trade agreements.

Only then, in June, was this hyperactive government able to introduce its health-care proposal–the public option, the remaking of the insurance industry, a 5.4% tax surcharge, the expansion of Medicaid.

A leader is needed but Dimocrats threw away the FDR coalition which Hillary Clinton had reforged and gifted the nomination to an inexperienced and unqualified (by his own words) Barack Obama.

American voters know they’ve reached a long-term economic tipping point. Which way to go, old West or new East? They understand the challenges are growing while the politicians seem to be shrinking.

So the Republicans “won” Tuesday. Now what?

Just as the Democrats in 2008 ran mainly against “Bush,” the Republican political model seems to be to let Democratic failure dump states like New Jersey and Virginia into their control. But I think most voters, no matter their party registration, know that in the past 12 months the stakes for them have suddenly become larger than political “control.”

Unless leadership emerges equal to the new world voters see they have fallen into, volatility in America’s election returns is going to be the norm for a long time.

Which brings us to Lynn Forester’s email which we post, with her permission, minus a couple of introductory sentences:

Lynn Forester:

I cannot tell you how touched I was by your supportive and generous comment about my Op-Ed. I thought you might be interested in the attached radio segment that I subsequently did with John Gibson so it is attached to this mail.

I have always loved your ferocious commitment to Hillary and to good women in politics. About the NoLimits conference, we need to always think of the key guiding principle as we follow our conscience and serve our country; namely, to do no harm to Hillary Clinton. I know you agree with me that Hillary is the most courageous, inspiring, hard-working and deserving woman to ever walk the halls of high political office. There is certainly a place within all of our hearts (and minds) where we continue to mourn the fact that she is not our President today.

But, she has a very important job and is fully committed to executing that job with excellence. So, while I speak out, I do so as a private citizen not connected in any way to Secretary Clinton. I am a lone wolf in what I say, which is why I so appreciate the friendship and support that you have always given me.

In the case of NoLimits, it is important for the organization that Secretary Clinton can participate in their activities. Moreover, it is a registered 501c3 charity that cannot engage in politics.

So, while we all have a vital role to play, it is really important that none of us degrade the work for women of No Limits, WomenCount, The New Agenda, Together4Us, your websites and so many other Hillary websites. The NoLimits conference this week is a wonderful way for Hillary supporters to stay together and we need to thank all the people who participate to make it a success. Let’s be grateful for everyone’s contribution and work together to fight for that day when we have a woman in the White House.

Much Love,

Lynn

As Ben Franklin said “We either hang together, or hang separately.” We hope, as we wrote previously, that the readers of Big Pink attend the No Limits conference and continue to support Hillary Clinton. Hillary is busy “saving the world” and we need to sing her praises even as we expose the boob currently in the White House and make clear the historical mistake in ’08 the Democratic Party made.

Below is the radio interview Lynn Forester referenced (we’ll try to post the MP3 interview so all can listen in to the charming Lynn Forester as she speaks with wisdom and grace).

Radio Interview with John Gibson Show – FoxNews Radio
Tuesday October 20th 2009, 1.10pm

John Gibson (JG)
Lynn Forester de Rothschild (LfdeR)

JG
Lynn, welcome back to the program – we haven’t talked with you in a long time

LfdeR
John – it’s so nice to be back and nice to be talking with you again

JG
It’s nice to talk to you – You are always refreshing

LfdeR
That’s what you might say – others don’t probably think so

JG
Well, we’ll have callers later on but at the moment we have you all to ourselves. Now, you talk about Obama’s blank screen. Do you still pine for the days that it seemed possible Hillary would be President?

LFdeR
Well, I think that without question, Hillary Clinton would have been a great, great President but we’ve got a different result so I don’t pine for that per se but I know we would be living in different times if she was President

JG
And you are still a big Democratic donor

LfdeR
No, I’m not

JG
Oh, you’ve stopped that

LfdeR
I’m not a big Democratic or Republican donor – I’m Independent now

JG
What would motivate you to donate to someone now?

LfdeR
Well, I would have to believe that they were people who would courageously defend the principles of American dynamism and American exceptionalism and protect the people who are less fortunate. I kind of see myself as being without a home I am a progressive conservative

JG
That’s okay – Independents are the big force in American politics – so welcome to the club. I, myself, am a registered Independent.

LfdeR
29% of the people who voted in the last election self-identified as Independents which is the highest ever. I think Americans are just sick of the games that both parties play – we want a straight shot at honest, courageous leadership and I think both parties fail us on that score.

JG
What did you mean by Obama’s blank screen. What was your take on that statement you made?

LfdeR
Well, first of all, it was interestingly the way he described himself in his book “the Audacity of Hope” and I think it tells us all we really need to know about him. For him it is not about conviction or courage of conviction, it is about convincing people of his transcendence – it is about the Obama Brand and to get there, he convinces us, he gives each of us a little bit of what we want to hear so that we support him; instead of his giving us leadership for answers to the problems that are in front of us and I think it is absolutely outrageous the way he demonizes the Republicans and mis-characterizes their patriotism and their devotion to the right thing. I say that as a Democrat and as a Democrat I am so happy I have been able to get to know Republicans and yeh, we differ on some of the social issues but even where we differ, they are thoughtful, they are patriotic and they are worth having at the table and Obama’s exclusion of the Republican voices is absolutely outrageous to me particularly as he came to fame by making a speech at the Democratic Convention in 2004, when no-one had ever heard of him, beautiful words – saying that we were not Red States or Blue States, we’re Purple States and he wrote a book criticizing George Bush for running a continuous campaign from the White House and what is Barak Obama doing. No other person than Ted Sorensen at a recent conference up at Harvard said that Obama’s weakness right now is that he is still campaigning. He is still out there trying to beat up the Republicans. Well, you know what we are a nation of fair minded open people and we want both voices heard and part of the decision making process.

JG
What did you think when people were objecting to various Health care plans and I won’t say they were his because he didn’t attach his name to anything but nonetheless under the general rubric of Obama care there were a lot of plans being put forward that were troubling to many people. What did you think when the reaction of Obama supporters all the way up to former President Carter were calling people racist.?

LfdeR
Oh, I think that is such a cheap shot – I think it is absolutely horrendous. We elected a black President. We the nation elected a black President – stop calling us racist, if we want a different result in policies and it is just appalling how the Obama people when they get into a corner, will lash out and call people racist, including me.

JG
You got called racist

LfdeR
Hm, Hm and there is another woman, Amy Siskind, she has a website – she has been called that by a lot of people – that’s what they resort to and it is just outrageous.

JG
Now having said that there are some things you don’t like about him, I am sure there are some things you do like about him but in retrospect, did Democratic voters make a huge mistake in choosing him over Hillary?

LfdeR
First of all, let’s remember that Hillary won the popular vote. OK. Barak Obama became the nominee by manipulation of the primary process and there is no doubt about that That book has still to be written So, the Democratic voters did not make a mistake.
I will always go with the heart and soul of America and frankly I do not think that voters made a mistake in voting for Barak Obama given the information they had at the time, because he was such a talented campaigner and his rhetoric is so good. It is only when you begin to compare his rhetoric with his record that you begin to doubt him.

JG
You knew during the primaries and general campaign , you knew much more about Hillary than you did about Barak Obama – correct?

LfdeR
Yes

JG
So, looking back on it – what would you say to the question – how would a Hillary Clinton Presidency have be different to an Obama?

LfdeR
First of all, Hillary Clinton is a worker,

Hillary Clinton works the facts and issues, number one

Hillary Clinton reaches across the aisles Number two

Hillary Clinton worked with John McCain,

Hillary Clinton worked with Lindsay Graham a conservative senator who actually lead impeachment against her husband but she worked with Lindsay for the good of the country.

We would also have a President who would not be a blank screen. With Hillary Clinton you will know what she thinks, you will agree or disagree. At the end of the day as she has proven over and over, she will respect the result of the American people. She fought for health care result – she didn’t win – she moved on.

She fought to be President – she didn’t win

She is now serving our country in the most noble, honest, elegant way that anyone can imagine so constitutionally they are two extraordinarily different people and I am very glad that [s]he has her heart soul and mind helping him right now. It is good for the country.

JG
If Barak Obama is as you say, at the bottom of the piece, Obama’s a blank screen and you say voters will find they have elected not another FDR but another Jimmy Carter – let’s go back to those Jimmy Carter years. At the end of Carter’s first term, in the primary he was challenged by Ted Kennedy and the challenge went really all the way to the convention – it was quite a momentous thing. If Barak Obama has Jimmy Carter like troubles at the end of 2012, do you think Hillary should challenge him? Should she run again?

LfdeR
I would never venture there and I doubt that history in that way will repeat itself but I believe that by 2012 and even by 2010 there is going to be a lot of buyer’s remorse about BO and I think the challenge which is also an opportunity for the Republican Party is to come up with a moderate, centrist, articulate, appealing person in the same way that out of Jimmy Carter, we got Ronald Reagan. Now Ronald Reagan today would be to the left of the mainstream Republican Party is which is why I think that Republican Party has to reform itself and I think if it does it has a very good shot in 2010 and a very good shot in 2012. I actually think that our best way to put brakes on Barak Obama is to defeat President Pelosi. President Pelosi has a majority of 44 seats in the house, 55 of those Democrats won in districts that John McCain won. These are not very stable seats. If President Pelosi were not there that would put brakes on Obama agenda

JG
Let me return to something as I am going to run out of time. Might turn out to be the last question
Is it over for Hillary?

LfdeR
Whatever ‘it’ is – what do you mean by ‘it’?

JG
Presidential politics – is she really done – could she come forward at some point after Obama is no longer President and run again?

LfdeR
Only she knows the answer to that. Anything is possible and I’m sure that’s not what she’s thinking about. She’s doing her job.

JG
I know she is but you were a big supporter – you wish she had won

LfdeR
I do wish she had won, I do wish she had won – I think the country would be so much better off if she was President – I think that for sure.

JG
So you haven’t given up hope?

LfdeR
I haven’t given up my confidence in her.

JG
You are keeping hope alive?

Lfder
Yes, keeping hope alive

JG
Lynn Forester de Rothschild, CEO of ELRothschild and founder of Together4Us.com, a political discussion site
Always good to talk to you

LfdeR
Thank you, John – have a great day

JG
Isn’t she great

Isn’t she great? You betcha!

  1. Apologies, Admin, for going off subject but the fort Hood Massacre is chilling.
    12 dead and 31 wounded. And here’s a statement from one of the CO’s.

    In a statement, U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Austin, says the shootings at Fort Hood were an act of terror.

    His words:

    This appears to be a coordinated attack against our military. Whether it was directed from a foreign or domestic source it is still an act of terror.

  2. Danile Henninger’s piece is brilliant.

    And Lyn Forester’s passionate support for HRC is inspirational.

    Forester tells it like it is, no hold barred. She comes right out and says HRC would have been the better choice, was, in fact the popluar choice but Squat manipulated the process.

    I also like that she didn’t flinch about the racism charges.

    Great interview and wonderful letter. Thanks for sharing.

  3. apparently a recent convert to islam, from the news, oh dear, here we go, this is going to cause a lot of trouble.

  4. The suspected gunman was identified by ABC News as Major Malik Nadal Hasan.

    The shooter was killed and two other suspects, who are also soldiers, have been apprehended, Lt. Gen. Robert W. Cone said.

  5. I live 45 minutes from Fort hood. Have been there many times as my nephew deployed and redeployed to Iraq. I was in that very same building.

    I ask, what excuse will the Fraud make or his Muslim breathen? Will he deny it was terrorism? My understanding is that there where possibly 3 shooters…

    What a terrible day for the victims, their families, the family of Fort Hood…for America…

  6. Hi Mop,

    Don’t know if he’s ‘Muslim’ but the name sure implies he is, don’t ya think?

    What a friggin mess.

    The ceremony was for soldiers and their families who had missed graduation exercises because they’d been deployed – to Afghanistan.

    I think Hasan is dead but there may be two witnesses/accomplices. No info about them, yet.

  7. Twitterfall is saying Hasan was upset about the war and was about to be deployed?

    So he goes to war against US?

    Gonzo, I’m sure your coverage will be much more true and informative than the national BM.

  8. ABC’s Brain Ross said Hasan was a recent convert.

    But other sites are reporting it like this:

    There are unconfirmed reports that Major Hasan was a convert to Islam and originally from Virginia. He was reportedly scheduled to deploy to either Iraq or Afghanistan and was unhappy about it.

  9. Mop,

    The name has been confirmed at ABC and CNN. Fox still hasn’t released the name.

    But it’s all over the tweets.

    *************************

    Sorry, but the man is running around the world in private jets screaming the sky is fallen on dubious scientific data and making fortune off of cap and trade type laws and “echo” friendly business’s…stinks. By the way, his carbon print is as big as Texas…

  11. Converts are the worst, always over the top trying to prove they are as good or better than those born to a religion. Wonder about the other 2.

    AS*HOLES, MAY THEY ROT IN HELL….

  12. The thing is, this is going to make it very difficult for any soldiers to trust muslim colleagues and what stupid hotheads in the military are going to do in iraq and afghanistan to the people when they hear about this.

  13. very interesting, Admin…happy to see and ‘hear’ Lynn is speaking out again…Hillary will be our ‘Phoenix’…we remain united…

  14. You’re right, Mop.

    And the news the past week has been filled with converts and trueborns and their criminal activities, from the FBI bust in Michigan, to the the guy arrested for running down and killing his daughter in an ‘honor’ killing and the perv who’s been living with a dozen rotting corpses for years.

  15. Mop,

    OTOH,

    Not a heck of a lot happened when those 2 young soldiers were killed by a convert earlier this year.

    Then again, that barely made the news.

  16. Basil, you are right, its all i’ve heard this week, is muslim religious violence and with the 5 British soldiers murdered yesterday by a man they trained as a policeman in Afghanistan, he knew them, ate with them, waited for them to take their armour of and shot them all dead.

    Thats infiltration.

  17. This is for you Mop.

    I’m sure you’ll appreciate the irony.

    Suspect was a PSYCHIATRIST, a trained army mental health professional, upset at being deployed to Afghanistan and having to kill his fellow devotees.

  18. The shooter was a psychiatrist about ready to be deployed to Iraq and supposedly unhappy about this. Watching pbs. Base is in lockdown.

  19. Mop,

    On the other hand, the bears seem to be on our side.

    Didya hear about the black bear in Afghanistan that killed the two thugs who were squatting in his cave?

    TRUE STORY

    Maybe we should recruit a couple dozen bears.

  20. Yes but there was 3 of them, so it could be possible that was he was he mindfucking with the soldiers and looking for suggestive people in sessions.

  21. I hate to go here, but this slaughter could give cover to the dims when they vote on the 2000 page POS bill on Saturday.

  22. MOP,

    WOW!

    What a theory! And very plausible.

    BTW – in previous post I meant this slaughter could provide cover for the dims coz people won’t be paying attention.

  23. Good to hear from Lynn and to know that she still supports Secretary Clinton. As more time passes, we are all vindicated in our beliefs and support.

  24. Well jesus, this guy if he was the psychiatrist, could have planted any number of suggestive things into the head of vulnerable soldiers, find a few sympathetic to his cause and then turn them.

  25. You’re right, mop.

    :shudders:

    On twitterfall a couple of AA posters have chimed in with poignant messageslike this;
    don’tbeblackdon’tbeblackdon’tbeblack.

    This is going to get real ugly.

  26. MOP;
    Other sources are saying he’s from Virginia!

    From the Houston Chronicle:
    “Maria Treviño, who works at Carl R. Darnall Medical Center, said she was on the phone with a woman at the processing center when the shooting occurred. She said she heard screaming and gunshots before she hung up to get help.

    “They just started screaming, ‘Don’t let him in, don’t let him in, they’re shooting at us,’” she said. “I pray they didn’t get hurt. It was horrible. We’re still scared over here.”

    Treviño said soon after the phone call she began to see bloodied victims stumble into the hospital. She said authorities have not let anyone who works at the hospital leave.

  27. i should say, originally from Jordan. His pictures on TV, thats a middle eastern face, i can tell easily.

  28. I just found out about Ft Hood, I am shocked. There is something fishy about this. They would definitely want to keep out the idea that it was a planned terrorist attack.

  29. Hasan was evidently recently transferred from Washington DC to Fort Hood.
    Dr. Nidal Malik Hasan MD
    Psychiatry
    2 Wramc Department 6900 Georgia Avenue, NW
    Washington , DC – 20307
    301-625-9797

    BTW, mop, a lot of posters at other sites have also commented about Squat’s weird demeanor during his speech today.

  30. Lady Lynn is terrific. Her husband is a lucky man. None of what I am about to post pertains to them. She practiced with Simpson Thatcher in New York. I never met her but her but her firm was on the opposite side of a m&a transaction I was involved in. They were good people too.

    -OBAMA’S GODFATHER-

    CHAPTER I: THE NATURE OF THE BEAST

    A friend of mine who is politically astute told me that George Soros is “the godfather” of Mr. Obama and is using him as a tool to destroy our Constitution, turn us into a socialist country and establish a New World Order (NWO).

    When I heard that allegation for the first time, I was as skeptical as you probably are hearing it now. How could one man do all this? What about Goldman Sachs, General Electric, the Chicago Machine etc.? There are legal checks and balances, are there not? The proposition was beyond the pale. Or so I thought.

    But then I remembered something Walter Cronkite said shortly before his death: “There is an elite class in this country comprised of the heads of finance and commerce who so manipulate democracy that they control democracy”. Suddenly, the proposition seemed more plausible than it did before.

    Then I reflected on the government takeover of our economy which has been initiated during the past nine months, from the taxpayer bailout of banks, to the stimulus plan, to GM, to cap and trade, to government health care, to G-20, to his shadow army of Czars, to Emanuel’s chutzpa “never let a good crisis go to waste”.

    As I dug deeper, I began to realize that each of those initiatives is favored and indeed advocated by one man—George Soros. Soros is a left wing billionaire, the agent of certain Anglo-European banking interests, the largest currency trader in the world, and the de facto head of the New Democratic Party.

    I discovered that Soros operates through two (2) principal organizations. One of them is the Quantum Fund. It is a hedge fund through which he is able to control currency markets. He is responsible for the European crash of 1992, and the Asian crisis of 1997. He is known as “The Man Who Broke the Bank of England”.

    His other organization is the Open Society Institute. It purports to be charitable enterprise, but is in fact a politically subversive one. It is a network of radical left wing think tanks, media outlets, and community organizing groups. The OSI does business in fifty-one (51) countries. It has been used to topple regimes.

    Soros utilized “shock doctrine” methods to bring down standing governments in Poland, Yugoslavia, Russia, Georgia, Ukraine, and install new ones who would support his globalist agenda. He ravaged their economies in the process. The overthrow of Edward Shevardnadze in Georgia is a paradigmatic example.

    Soros developed a unique set of tactics to subvert those governments. He leveraged the power of the internet, media, training centers, youth groups, chants, mass movement tactics, cult propaganda and a wall of money to secure the desired result. Those tactics proved successful for Soros in each case.

    Thereafter, Soros imported those methods into to the United States in a secret document called The Dean Plan. That document called for a charismatic leader who could inspire a mass movement, and advance a globalist agenda. Soros found those traits in a man named Barack Obama—scion of Reverend Wright.

    Soros original plan was to take over the Presidency in 2004 but it did not happen. Therefore, he selected Obama, met with him several times, introduced him to his money men and helped plan the campaign. He set up internet capability through Blue State Digital. He test marketed Obama through the Deval Patrick campaign.

    Soros took over the Democratic Party. He set up a “Shadow Party” of left wing issue advocacy groups, engineered a change in campaign finance law, diverted $300 million dollars in donations from the Democratic Party and used them to finance left wing candidates. That gave him de facto control over the Party.

    Soros implemented the Dean Plan in the 2008 Democratic Primary. He showed the Obama campaign how to co-opt the media and exploit its pathological hatred for Hillary Clinton. Also, he invested in their parent companies. I fully expect that Soros views them in the same terms Lenin did–useful idiots.

    If you study the primary you will see the hand of Soros at every turn, from his ACORN and SEIU thugs, to the 2000 complaints of voter fraud & intimidation, to the takeover of the Democratic National Committee, to the admission that Obama was pre-selected, to the disenfranchisement of voters by the Rules and Bylaws Committee, to the tidal wave of untraceable money.

    The General Election was simply more of the same. I tried to alert the other party to what had occurred in the primary, and the resulting threat to our nation. But they were unresponsive until the third debate. Thereafter, the stock market crashed, Obama was elected and Soros became the power behind the throne.

    Today, many Americans have become extremely apprehensive about Obama and where he is taking the country. But the false charge of racism has bludgeoned them into silence. Others continue to drink the Kool-Aid or are too intoxicated on the hatred of Bush to comprehend the truth about Obama.

    Frankly, that is not what we need in a democracy. This is not about one party or the other. This is about the survival of our nation. It is about the freedom, liberty, and security. The media made a Faustian Pact to worship Obama and destroy his opponents. As a result, Obama supporters became more cult-like and fanatical.

    Obama is advancing the Soros Agenda at the expense of the American People. His domestic policies will create “inextinguishable debt”. But his international policies are worse. Soros has stated that our nation is the “obstacle” to a just world order. Therefore, he is determined to “burst the bubble of American supremacy”.

    The overarching goal of Soros is to undermine our Constitution, move us to world government and redistribute our wealth—through “creative destruction”. If you think I am kidding, consider his latest statement: “global markets require global regulation but current regulation is rooted in the concept of sovereignty.”

    That statement seems innocent enough on its face. After all we live in an interconnected world, and certain threats such as terrorism, nuclear proliferation, financial collapse, etc. transcend national borders. But that does not mean we must surrender our sovereignty to a Bevy of Platonic guardians as he maintains.

    Nevertheless, that is the direction we are headed. It will be done through treaties and dilution of the 2/3 ratification requirement. At G-20, Obama surrendered our financial sovereignty, at Copenhagen he will agree to pay up to 2% of our GDP for environmental debt and he will attack our middle class with a consumption tax.

    At the same time, Soros is pushing for the destruction of the dollar. He claims that China and Brazil will be the “new engine of the world economy”, and the United States will be its “drag”. He wants to remove the dollar as the world reserve currency and substitute an international currency (SDRs) of his design.

    Unfortunately, the Soros Agenda does not end with the establishment of world government, and the looting of the middle class. There is a social dimension to it as well. In the broadest sense it is a new manifesto of the old gospel of the radical left, tied to the survival of the planet. The intimate details of this are closely held.

    If you still skeptical that one man could do all this then you are right in this sense. Goldman and others provided financial support for the Obama campaign, General Electric and others provided operational support through their journalistic lackeys at NBC and MSNBC. World bureaucrats like Maurice Strong are also implicated.

    But Soros is the Godfather of Obama. No one else had a tried and true turnkey operation for regime change. No one else pursued a ten (10) step strategy to put Obama in the White House. How else could a man with a hidden past and no real accomplishments rise to the pinnacle of power so quickly? Think about it. But now that Obama has been installed as President it is payback time. Obama is obligated to pursue the Soros Agenda. After all, that is what he is there for.

    Caveat: The Tea Parties were extremely effective in shutting down the initial attempt by Obama, Reid, Pelosi to impose national health care. The negative reception which Congressional Democrats received when the White House sent them home to deliver vague talking points forced them to retreat. The two million Americans who marched on the Capitol made them think twice about 2010.

    But George Soros is a patient man. Notice how the Democrats who were cowering in August are back again in full strength. They are now telling us that the polls say 57% of Americans want a public option. That is of course a lie–if the question reflects the actual cost. Furthermore, this is not about covering the uninsured. There are other ways to do that. This is about a takeover of 1/6 of our economy.

    (Note: there is a fair amount of information available on Soros. Frankly, some of it is credible and some is not. I have tried my best to determine what is credible and present it to you in a coherent framework. At this point, my motive is neither partisan nor mercenary. I simply want this country to survive and prosper again)

    CHAPTER 2: MARKET MANIPULATION MADE EASY

    George Soros (Gyorgy Schwartz) was born in Hungary on August 12, 1930. He is a secular Jew and he grew up during Nazi Occupation. At the age of 14 he was employed to confiscate the personal effects of Jews who were loaded in box cars and sent to death camps. What a young man does in wartime to survive is between him and his conscience. What he says about it years later as an adult tells you a lot about his character. Soros appeared on Sixty Minutes on 2/20/92. Steve Croft showed him a film clip of Jews being herded into the box cars by Nazis and asked how he feels today as a fellow Jew about his role in that tragedy. Whereupon Soros told an incredulous Croft that he felt no remorse and went on to explain that this is the same way markets work—he was a winner and they were simply the losers. See Sixty Minutes Interview of Soros by Croft@ http://bsimmons.wordpress.com/2006/11/06/george-soros-interview-on-60-minutes-2/

    Two years after the War, Soros left Hungary and wandered through Europe as the Marshall Plan took shape. There is evidence that he was recruited by the British Secret Service, and if that is true then the similarity between him and Sidney Reilly (Ace of Spies) would be striking to say the least. He enrolled in the London School of Economics which was a Fabian socialist institution at the time. He studied under Karl Popper who preached about the virtues of an open society, and advocated among other things social engineering. In 1956, he came to the United States and became a citizen. He worked for a bank which was part of the Rothschild Empire, and there is evidence that he is still their agent. (Note: Baron Rothschild made his fortune speculating on the outcome of the Napoleonic War, with inside information and the hit and run tactic.)

    In 1969, Soros and the Rothschild bank established Double Eagle Hedge Fund which was later renamed the Soros Fund with the Quantum Fund as its flagship. From the beginning, those operations have been shrouded in secrecy and complexity. The Quantum Fund has 99 investors; they are among the wealthiest people in the world. Most of them are British or European. None are American.

    In 1996, an article appeared in The Investigative Executive Intelligence Review which identified who some of those investors were as of that date. Among them were Richard Katz (Rothschild & Sons Bank), Nils Tabor (James Capital Investment—Lord Jacob Rothschild), James Goldman (Rothschild’s cousin), Lord William Rees-Mogg (former editor of the Times of London, Vice Chairman of the British Broadcasting Company). All of those people belong to the ultra-conservative Club of Isles Thatcher wing of the Tory party— who still believe in economic colonialism and long for an Empire on which the sun never sets.

    Other known members of the Quantum Fund were European Bank officials from firms with drug connections. One of them was Edgar De Piccota of the Union Banque Privee. Three employees of his bank were charged with leading a multimillion dollar money laundering ring for Columbian cocaine and Turkish heroin. De Piccotta is also a business partner of Carlo De Benedetti who was charged with triggering the collapse of Banco Ambrosiano whose president was found hung at Black Friars Bridge in London in what police described as a Masonic ritual killing. Member Alberto Foglia is head of the Banca Del Ceresia in the town of Lugano. That town is across the Swiss border from Milan and is the banking haven for the Italian Mafia, and drug money laundering. (Note: that was 15 years ago. By now, some of those players may be gone. But the fact that they were there once and may still be there today proves that these are the kind of people Soros associates with. Their bona fides leave something to be desired.)

    The Quantum Fund is registered in the Netherlands Antilles to avoid taxes, maintain confidentiality of its members and investment objectives. The Netherlands Antilles has been repeatedly cited as a center for the laundering of the illegal proceeds of the Latin American cocaine trade. Hedge funds are a known vehicle for such activities. Whether the Quantum Fund dabbles in drugs is not known. However, Soros is a major advocate for the legalization of marijuana.

    The Quantum Fund is a hedge fund. The fund manager, e.g. Soros, looks at a particular security (stock, commodity or currency) and decides whether it will go up or down during a short period. If the fund manager believes that the price of that security will go up, then he will purchase the security, sell it later at the higher price and make a profit. This is called “going long”. Conversely, if the fund manager believes the price of that security will go down, he will borrow the stock from a third party, sell it at the high price, repurchase the identical stock at the lower price, tender it to the buyer and make a profit. This is called selling short. “Today, if hedge funds shout fire in a crowded theatre, they can create a panic and then amuse themselves later by looting the dead bodies of those caught in the crush. A wall of money can make things happen.” (Mick Brooks).

    Soros is the largest currency trader in the world and he is known to manipulate markets in three generic ways. First, Soros never makes a market move without inside information according to those who do business with him. This has been confirmed by the insider trading fine which was levied against him in France, which he subsequently paid. Second, Soros uses organizations he controls through OSI to drive down stock prices of publicly held companies so he can buy low and sell high. For example, he used Move-On.org to attack Halliburton for precisely that reason. Third, Soros uses the “hit and run” tactic invented by the Baron himself (supra) to destroy a market where he has power. He makes a showing of buying a particular stock, others think he knows something and follow suit. The market goes up and a bubble forms. He quietly liquidates his holdings through confederates and takes a substantial profit. He leaves behind is a collapsed market and ruined investors.

    In 1992, Soros masterminded the European Market Crash when he shorted $10 billion worth of sterling, and forced the British government to spend £12 billion in an attempt to prop-up the rapidly devaluing currency. This wiped out the savings of working class people. Also it earned him the moniker of “The Man Who Broke the Bank of England”. The catastrophe he generated then spread to Germany which raised interest rates and to Italy where the lira was sharply devalued. Whereupon, Soros bragged “I made a billion as the pound crashed”. (London Daily Mail).

    In 1997, Soros initiated the Asian Market Crash when he short sold Thai currency. This created a domino effect that swept throughout Asia, leaving Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia and South Korea no choice but to float their currencies. Corporate profits in Thailand dropped 60% and growth rates fell to zero. For this skullduggery the Thai press branded Soros “an economic war criminal who sucks the blood of ordinary people”. (Wall Street Journal). The Prime Minister of Malaysia added: “The people have to be protected from George Soros, who has so much money and power but is totally thoughtless” (See “The Secret Financial Network Behind “Wizard” George Soros” http://www.questionsquestions.net/docs04/engdahl-soros.html. )

    CHAPTER 3: SHOCK DOCTRINE FOR DUMMIES

    In the Hindu trinity there is the god Brahma who is the Creator, the god Vishnu who is the Preserver and the god Rudra who is the destroyer of worlds. Like Rudra, George Soros is The Destroyer of Worlds.

    When the Soviet Union collapsed under a mountain of debt in the late 1980s, uncertainty ensued. A scholar named Francis Fukuyama published a book called “The End of History”. That book argued that ideological conflict was passé and the future belonged to markets. That argument seemed naïve to me, given what we had witnessed in Iran at the beginning of that decade. Nevertheless, the book was important for an entirely different reason, which I failed to appreciate at the time: fundamentally, it was a call to arms for the economic elites in the western world to abandon the old east-west paradigm and move aggressively toward a global economic model, which offered global capitalists lower costs of production and vast new markets which could be linked through supply chain strategies.

    More recently, author Naomi Klein wrote a revealing book called “Shock Doctrine”. This book describes in detail the principal vehicle used by the elites to impose the global model on targeted countries. The first step is to create or exploit a crisis to advance an agenda which could not survive the democratic process in normal times. The second step is to establish a new government in which multi-national corporations and political elites serve their own interests at the expense of the public. As Milton Freidman noted: only a crisis—actual or perceived produces—real change. http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2007/sep/15/politics

    Soros is no stranger to shock doctrine methods. He introduced them first in Poland. He forged a relationship with the Solidarity Movement and helped them bring down the communist government. He brought in his cronies for the ostensible purpose of moving the country from communism to a free market economy. Fundamentally, this meant a transition from state ownership to private ownership of large segments of the economy. To those with money it was a “buying opportunity”. Thus, Soros and his cronies purchased former state enterprises debt free and acquired resources at bargain basement prices. Many people lost their jobs as a result of this privatization. Soros was indifferent to their fate. He admits that he knew that his shock therapy would cause huge unemployment, closing of factories and social unrest. To him it did not matter.

    He introduced shock therapy again in Russia. The result was chaos and hyperinflation. The Yeltsin government imposed draconian cuts in state spending to industry and agriculture while the economy was still state owned. A goal of zero budget deficits in three months was announced. Credit to industry ended, businesses piled up debts and inflation went out of control. Meanwhile Soros associates moved in with hard currency and cornered the market on cheaply priced resources like aluminum and oil. These predations by Soros caused great suffering in Russia, and ill will toward the United States. (Note: this is why Putin turns a cold shoulder to his man Obama. Also, it helps explain why Russia has turned to China and forged an economic alliance adverse to our interests, apart from geopolitical and economic factors).

    Finally, Soros was an active participant in the efforts of British and American intelligence organizations to topple communist regimes in Yugoslavia (The Colors Revolution), Georgia (The Rose Revolution) and Ukraine (The Orange Revolution). Again, the mantra was to bring the fruits of democracy and the free market economy to former Soviet vassal states. Once again shock doctrine methods were deployed and they brought instability, violence and economic despair. The Russian Mafia filled the vacuum–Don Symon– Capo di tutti capi. (Note: the CIA uses the color revolution term to designate a Soros-directed revolution.)

    The last three cases are instructive for our purposes because new methods were used to topple those regimes and install governments who would play ball with Soros. Those methods were based on the tactics of Professor Gene Sharp, Chicago radical Saul Alinsky, and Italian communist Antonio Gramsci (The Prison Diaries). The common elements were as follows: 1) a charismatic leader, 2) a cult movement, 3) the conspicuous use of young people, 4) a three word message, 5) mind numbing chants, 6) symbols of change, 7) flash mobs, 8) media support, and 9) the entry of Soros agents into the new regime. (N.B. these methods have been given the euphemistic name “The Velvet Revolution”—or bloodless revolution. Soros would use them later in the Obama presidential campaign.)

    (Note: The Velvet Revolutions which Soros has launched around the world have been successful–with one exception: Iran. The government suppressed the rebellion violently and restored order. No one called it a Soros Revolution but it had the mark. Meanwhile, Soros associate Zbignew Brzezinski who served with him on the Council on Foreign Relations declared that if Israeli jets attack Iran, then U.S. planes should shoot them down. Now that is what you might call thinking outside the box, except for the inconvenient fact that Israel is one of our closest allies. Evidently, New World Order thinking is in the ascendant.)

    CHAPTER 4: THE SCORPION AND THE FROG

    “Creative Destruction” is an economic theory which posits that companies who revolutionized and dominated industries lose their dominance over time as new players enter the market and introduce better products, more efficient methods and/or lower costs. (Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy: Schumpeter). The same can be said of nations. For example, the United States emerged from World War II as the production and consumption engine of the world. During the 1980s we lost our manufacturing sector to free trade policies and off-shoring to low cost countries. Eventually, that work migrated to China. Today, we are losing our consumption preeminence as well. The domestic consumption market in China is growing at over 20% per year. In our own hemisphere, Brazil and Venezuela are emerging as major sources of raw materials, production, and consumption
    .
    Soros is mindful of this tectonic shift in the world economy. He wants to work his way into the new markets while maintaining a presence in the old ones. Since his specialty is hedging he has positioned himself on both sides of the transaction. On the one hand, he is betting on the rise of China, Brazil and Venezuela. His objective is to become a political and economic player in those countries. On the other hand he is betting on the decline of the United States. And now that he has his man in the White House, he is in a position to push policies which will expedite the process of creative destruction. His immediate goal is to make money. His ultimate goal is to establish a New World Order as discussed below.

    Soros is supporting the economies of China, Brazil and Venezuela. His investment strategy tells the story: as of June 30, 2007, Soros manages $2.6 billion portfolio as of June 30, 2009. The breakdown by sector is: i) oil and gas: 49.3%, ii) consumer goods: 10.5%, iii) building materials: 10.4%, iv) financials: 6%, v) technology: 5.6%, vi) health care: 5.6% vii) utilities: 3.7%, vii) telecom: 1.9%, viii) consumer goods. The major stock holdings include four Brazilian oil companies (Baslierio, Petreloio, Petrolibrazil and S.A. Petrobras), TPX (domestic oil production), Extreme Networks (internet switching and load balancing), Preradata (intelligence gathering, warehousing and analyzing in 40 countries), Microsoft (software), Francetelecon (4th largest telecom in world), Teekay Tankers (oil transportation), Time-Warner (media: CNN, AOL, Time Magazine), Focus Media (largest advertising network in China). In the case of Brazil, Obama has given him a two billion dollar loan for his oil exploration activities, and Blue States Digital is working for one of the political candidates in that election. Finally, Soros owns an interest in 273 newspapers in 113 countries.

    Soros is undermining the economy of the United States in various ways. For example, he is betting against the dollar, recommending that it be replaced as the world reserve currency, and preaching a gloomy future for our economy. At the same time, he is pushing Obama to pursue policies which are suicidal to the nation, in a time of economic distress. The net effect has been to triple the deficit. This has caused China to stop buying U.S. Treasury Bills, and the dollar to lose 17% of its value since Obama took office.

    Moreover, Soros advocates policies which will destroy our identity and vitality as a nation. For example, you cannot have open immigration on the one hand and safety nets on the other without bankrupting the country—yet Soros proposes both. You cannot have a sovereign nation, and fund an organization like La Raza which advocates a break-up of the United States—yet Soros does this. But if your goal is to eliminate borders, erase a national identity and create a North American Union then those positions are not inconsistent. Likewise, if you want a strong economy then you must produce goods and services. But if you force entire industries off shore by funding radical environmentalism as Soros does and must therefore import what need, then you will become dependent on other nations for your survival and you will have massive unemployment. It is no mystery why Soros does this. First, last and always he is a global capitalist committed to a policy of creative destruction. (See The Perverse Soros Agenda @: http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=977

    “Shortly after Soros invested heavily in Brazilian Oil (Petrobas) Obama promised 10 billion of our tax dollars to Brazil so they could expand their offshore oil fields. Now that may be a windfall for Soros and Brazil, but it is a bad deal for the U.S. The American Petroleum Institute estimates that oil exploration in the U.S. could create 160,000 new, well-paying jobs, as well as $1.7 trillion in revenues to federal, state, and local governments, all while fostering greater energy security. Do you get the feeling that American taxpayers are being treated like gullible suckers?” (See George Soros Republic Enemy Number 1 http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/14700 .)

    How could a man like Soros who left the devastation post-war Europe, came to the safety and security of the United States and was able to make a fortune here ever turn on America? The answer lies in the parable of the scorpion and the frog: the scorpion asked the frog for a ride across the pond. The frog refused because the scorpion might sting him. The scorpion assured the frog that he would never do that because they would both drown. Finally, the frog relented and let the scorpion ride across the pond on his back. Half way across, the scorpion stung the frog. As they both sunk to the bottom, the frog asked the scorpion “Why did you kill me?” The scorpion replied “Because it is in my nature”.
    ———————————————–

    CHAPTER 5: OH WHAT TANGLED WEBS WE WEAVE . . .

    “Oh what tangled webs we weave–when first we practice to deceive”. . . In 1979, Soros established an organization called The Open Society Institute. The stated purpose of that organization is: “to build vibrant and tolerant democracies whose governments are accountable to their citizens. . . to shape public policies that assure greater fairness in political, legal and economic systems and safeguard fundamental rights . . . to implement a range of initiatives to advance justice, education, public health and independent media . . . to build alliances across borders and continents on issues such as corruption and freedom of information . . . to improve the lives of people in marginalized communities . . . etc.”(See OSI Mission Statement @ http://www.soros.org/about)

    You may wonder how a man like Soros who has no regrets about confiscating the personal effects of Jews bound for Nazi death camps, and no qualms about decimating the life savings of working class people through predatory currency speculation in Britain, or using shock therapy to loot the economies of eastern Europe causing massive unemployment and suffering, could have any legitimate desire to “promote justice, fight corruption and improve the lives of people in marginalized communities”. You may wonder even more why he would contribute $5 billion dollars to that goal. It seems a bit out of character. (See Contrarian View @ http://www.undueinfluence.com/open_society_institute.htm.)

    The Gilded Age provides a possible answer to the question. Andrew Carnegie made a fortune in the steel business along the Monongahela River and then wrote an essay called “The Gospel of Wealth”. The central premise was the wealthy entrepreneur must dispense his fortune in a socially beneficial way, and not allow it to be wasted on frivolous expenditure. (Wikipedia). To that end, Carnegie gave money to libraries and other socially worthwhile causes. However, there is no evidence that Carnegie ever sought to destroy the United States so he could construct a New World Order. Obviously, Soros is not Carnegie.

    To comprehend the true motive of a man like Soros, we must analyze the nature of the organizations he is funding. Then we must think about how they fit in an overall plan of creative destruction. The first subset consists of entities which have a charitable purpose. Soros builds global good will through them. The second subset consists of entities which have a distinctly political purpose. They include radical left wing think tanks, law firms, academic groups, internet companies, media outlets, media watchdogs, bloggers and community activists. (Note: the most comprehensive list of The Organizations Funded by Soros: http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/Articles/orgsfundeddirectly%20.html

    The operative question, then, is why does Soros fund these groups? Because he uses these organizations to subvert governments that will not play ball with his globalist agenda and replace them with ones that will. As Neil Clark put it, Soros used the Open Society Institute to weaken the existing political structures and pave the way for Eastern Europe’s eventual colonization by global capital.”

    The Velvet Revolution in Georgia is the paradigmatic example. In 2003 Soros targeted Georgian President Eduard Shevardnadze for overthrow. Soros’ aim was the destruction of Russia as a world power. Eliminating Russian influence and replacing it with new regimes hostile to Russia was his goal. Soros had originally sought to control Shevardnadze, having met him in the 1980s when Saakashvili was Soviet foreign minister. Even then Soros was setting up his Open Society Institute in Georgia. In 2002 Shevardnadze made complaints against what he deemed Soros’ subversive activities. Soros responded that Shevardnadze could not be trusted to hold fair elections, and that he would mobilize his street lackeys, adding: “This is what we did in Slovakia at the time of Meciar, in Croatia at the time of Tudjman and in Yugoslavia at the time of Milosevic.”

    The Soros’ Open Society Institute sent a 31-year-old Tbilisi activist named Giga Bokeria to Serbia to meet with members of the Otpor (Resistance) movement and learn how they used street demonstrations to topple dictator Slobodan Milosevic. Then, in the summer, Mr. Soros’s foundation paid for a return trip to Georgia by Otpor activists, who ran three-day courses teaching more than 1,000 students how to stage a peaceful revolution.” (Note: like Camp Obama perhaps?) Soros gave the anti-Shevardnadze movement a considerable nudge: He also funded a popular opposition television station that was crucial in mobilizing support for this week’s “velvet revolution,” and he reportedly gave financial support to a youth group that led the street protests.” The street protest eventually forced Shevardnadze to sign his resignation papers.

    (Note: In the eyes of Mr. Soros’s employees, it was all done in the name of building democracy. The useful idiots of the Left had done the work of a globalist money speculator, marching under self-proclaimed ‘high ideals’, again fulfilling Oswald Spengler’s political dictum that ‘there is not a left-wing movement, not even the communists, who do not operate in the interests dictated by Money). (See Russo-Georgian Conflict Originates With Soros Subversion@

    —————————————-

    CHAPTER 6: THE DEVIL’S COUP D’ ETAT

    Step 1: Corrupt the Campaign Law: The McCain-Feingold Act was passed in 2002 to limit the power of big money in elections. It prohibited soft money donations to political parties. That was a major blow to the Democratic Party which had traditionally relied on soft money donations from unions. However, Soros and others spent $140 million to create an exception to that law which allowed big money donations to come in through the back door with 527 issue advocacy groups which he would form. The exception swallowed the rule.

    Step 2: Create the Shadow Party: in 2003, Soros inter alia created a nation-wide network of think tanks, activist groups and unions which are part of the radical left wing base of the Democratic Party. Conservative thinker and former anti-war radical David Horowitz (Radical Son) called this network “The Shadow Party”. This network of organizations masqueraded as mainstream Democrats, when in fact they were not. As Soros himself conceded: “the Democratic Party does not stand for the principles that I advocate; if it did it could not be elected.”

    Step 3: Line Up Billionaires: in the summer of 2002 Soros summoned a team of political strategists, activists and Democrat donors to his Southampton beach house in Long Island. At the meeting, Soros laid out his plan to take over the White House. A liberal activist group Americans Coming Together (ACT) proposed to mobilize voters in 17 battleground states. Soros told them he would give ACT $10 million. Before coffee the next morning, his friend Peter Lewis, chairman of the Progressive Corp., had pledged $10 million to ACT. Rob Glaser, CEO of Real Networks, promised $2 million. Rob McKay, President of the McKay Family Foundation, gave $1 million. Soros also promised $3 million to The Center for American Progress. (WashPo 11/13/03).

    In 2005, Soros set up a network of left wing think tanks and advocacy groups called the Democracy Alliance. Then, he prevailed upon eighty wealthy leftists to pledge one $1 million or more over a five year period, and 1000 more leftists to contribute $250,000. The principal beneficiaries were Media Matters (a left wing propaganda machine to counter the conservative media), the Center for American Progress headed up by John Podesta, and America Votes. See Spawn of Soros @ http://www.capitalresearch.org/pubs/pdf/FW0306.pdf

    Step 4: Take Over the Democratic Party: When the Democratic Party lost the ability to rely on soft money it panicked. Soros provided them with a solution which calls to mind the old saying beware of Greeks (or Hungarians) bearing gifts. The metaphor of the Trojan Horse is apt, for he invited the big money donors to contribute to his network in lieu of the Democratic Party itself. As a result, he siphoned off $300 million from the Party, and contributed it to support leftist candidates. In essence he privatized the Democratic Party. (See The Shadow Party @ http://97.74.65.51/readArticle.aspx?ARTID=2881)

    Step 5: Plan the Velvet Revolution: in 2004, Soros cronies developed a secret campaign strategy called The Dean Plan based on the Velvet Revolution Model. The stated objectives of the Dean Plan can be summarized as follows: 1) create a base of support outside the traditional Democratic Party and focus on that 10% of the electorate who are influential within their peer group or on the web, 2) create a web of small donors to offset the major donors of the Democratic Party, and supplement them through 527 PACs with unlimited contributions, 3) create a cult movement which appeals to young people and diverse populations, 4) drive home the theme of change with arguments and symbols, 5) bring left wing media commentators on board, 6) create an echo chamber in mainstream media, talk radio and the web, 7) select a candidate with no national name recognition, charisma and the stamina for a national campaign. The Dean Plan @rezkowatch.blogspot.com/…/rezkowatch-electability-2008-dean-plan.html

    Step 6: Select the Charismatic Candidate: In 2002 Howard Dean identified a candidate who met those criteria. Dean placed him on a list called “The Dean Dozen”. He was a Harvard Law School graduate, a no show Editor of the Harvard Law Review, a scion of the powerful Chicago political machine, and a state senator from Illinois. He was former community organizer for ACORN. His name was Obama. He was young and had a hypnotic timbre to his voice. He believed he could “make people believe anything he wants them to believe”. He was unknown to the national audience, and the paper trail on him from birth certificate to transcripts was hidden from public view. Consequently, the Dream Factory was free to define him to the county as they saw fit–in two best selling “autobiographies”. The wild card was his race. They did not know whether a predominantly white electorate would vote for a black candidate. So they tested the proposition by running an Obama clone in Massachusetts, and Axelrod managed the campaign. When Deval Patrick won the governorship, the question was answered in the affirmative. That is why Obama plagiarized Patrick speeches—they were afraid to deviate from the script one iota.

    Step 7: Become Obama’s Godfather: Soros backed Dean in 2004. When Dean’s candidacy ended in the memorable Dean Scream, he withdrew from the race, and turned his army of bloggers over to Obama. Then, he introduced Obama to Soros, who made a $60,000 contribution to Obama’s Illinois Senate Campaign. During the next two years, Soros met with Obama on several occasions. Soros presented Obama to his cabal of money men from major domestic and foreign banking firms. In one instance, he and Obama staged a mock debate over AIRPAC wherein Obama took the side of Israel and Soros took the contrarian side to impress wealthy Jewish donors that Obama was on their side. In January 2008, Soros crony Wolf from the Swiss Bank UBC helped Obama plan his campaign. Ultimately, what Soros saw in Obama was a candidate who fit the Dean Plan, could inspire a world-wide movement and was the quintessence of what every big businessman hopes for in a public servant, namely a politician who takes orders and stays bought.

    Step 8: Rig the Primary: In the Early States Soros funded organizations like ACORN hired street thugs and many were trained at Camp Obama on how to subvert the democratic process. The inevitable result was pervasive voter fraud and intimidation. In my own travels, I saw orderly caucuses and disorderly ones. Two thousand (2000) complaints were filed against the Obama campaign. See Caucus Analysis @ http://www.lynettelong.com/caucusfraud/reader-comments.html Many of those complaints were serious. See Texas caucus fraud @ http://www.mydd.com/story/2008/5/2/22818/72392. However, they were ignored by the Democratic National Committee, which was presided over by Soros confederates Dean, Pelosi and Brazile. Meanwhile, the Obama campaign introduced the race card. They called Bill and Hillary racists, while Obama himself maintained plausible deniability—like he always does. MSNBC pundit Chuck Todd accused white New Hampshire voters of racism. The charge was total fabrication. But it destroyed Hillary’s black support. False charges of racism are the last bastion of scoundrels. See Race Man by Professor Sean Wiltentz@: http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?

    In the Middle States the nomination was up in the air. Obama met with Governor Rendell of Pennsylvania, who was a Hillary supporter. Obama warned Rendell to go easy on him because he would be the nominee. Rendell was puzzled by the comment because it was the middle of the primary and he was unaware of that Soros and others had chosen Obama to be the nominee before the voters had spoken. Also, politicians of easy virtue like Dodd, Leahy and Kennedy called on Hillary to withdraw from the race because it was hurting the party for her to continue until every state had a chance to vote. All three were tied to Soros.

    In the Late States where Soros- influenced media shills attacked Hillary at every turn. CNN retained strategists attached words like polarizing to her and their talking heads repeated them continually. Soros is heavily invested in AOL Time Warner which is the parent organization of CNN. Not to be outdone, MSNBC unleashed a flood tide of sexism and even attacked Chelsie for speaking on behalf of her mother. The New York chapter of NOW picketed MSNBC offices, and Steve Capus was forced to muzzle Matthews. However, he reassigned the attack dog role to Olberman, who subtley suggested that if Hillary would not withdraw from the race that someone should take her in the backroom and beat her to death. The blatant partisanship of the NBC/MSNBC goes beyond political preferences of individuals and can be traced to the business interests of their parent organization General Electric. GE is a dominant player in the nuclear power industry and Obama is ready, willing and able to push that agenda. Today, their CEO Jeff Imelt is a key economic advisor to the President. Not to be outdone, Jake Tapper of ABC compared Hillary to Tanya Harding and thus implied that she would break Obama’s knees to win the nomination. Nuts. ABC now has the inside track with the Obama Administration with George Stephanopoulos and Linda Douglass (truth squad) operating as part of the Obama White House. No wonder the American People have moved en masse to FOX.

    At the conclusion of the campaign, the Soros controlled Rules and By-Laws Committee met to decide how the votes cast by Florida and Michigan would be allocated. Obama was not on the ballot in Michigan and yet the Committee awarded him delegates that Hillary won. This was a blatant violation of the core party principle of “fair reflection”. The rules had to be trashed to ensure Obama got the nomination. Thereafter, the Soros controlled DNC threatened to cut off funds to the state delegations who supported Hillary. Also, threats were issued to Hillary’s superdelegates that the party would field candidates to run against them in their primaries if they did not switch to Obama. They forced them to sign pledges to support Obama. Speaker Pelosi told them to support Obama not because of capacity for leadership, but because he brought in so much money.

    At the Convention, the fine young cannibals who were there to support Obama tried to bribe Hillary delegates to change their votes and if they would not change they harassed them. A complaint was drafted to the Secretary of State of California protesting this. But in the end, Hillary conceded. The Party that Soros controlled disrespected Hillary and her 18 million supporters. She won more primary votes than any Democratic candidate in history, including Obama. But real democracy does not count when you are dealing with Soros.

    (Note: as you can see, the nomination process was a sham. Soros controlled the Party and he made sure that Obama got the nomination. Hillary offered detailed solutions to our nation’s problems, whereas Obama had no real solutions- but oh so much hope. Many well meaning people responded to that emotion, and felt a sense of personal triumph when he took the oath of Office. They never worried about his background, never studied what he did in Illinois, and never guessed that there was a man behind him like Soros pulling the strings. But they loved the bread and circuses. Today many of them defend him still on the mistaken assumption that he represents them. He is their sun, their moon, their east, their west and nothing else matters. Others, who have some grasp of reality look at him now and wonder what happened to the man they voted for.)

    But mainstream media bears the ultimate responsibility here. They knew who Soros is and what he does. After all, Brokaw, Moyers and others sit on his boards. Nevertheless, they embraced Obama, trashed his opponents and sailed down the river of no return—why? I believe it was because the two prior administrations held them at arm’s length. What they saw in Obama was likeability, the promise of access and influence, and the rare opportunity to be part of the governing coalition. Now that is heady stuff. Therefore, they abdicated the role of journalist—which is crucial to a functional democracy and entered into a Faustian Pact. Now, they live with the contradictions every day.)

    Step 9: Spy on Americans: Soros knows that information is power. Therefore he invested in a data mining company early in the game. In 2004, four operatives in the Dean Presidential Campaign founded a company called Blue States Digital to conduct online fundraising, communicating and organizing of support for political candidates and causes. In 2006 Soros became a client. Blue States worked closely with the Obama campaign. They sent out campaign emails to supporters with instructions to forward that email to five (5) like-minded people, and secretly monitored and recorded the email addresses to which the email was sent. In other words, the Obama campaign spied on its own supporters. See “How sneakily are Blue State Digital tracking NGO political campaign emails?”@ http://p10.hostingprod.com@spyblog.org.uk/blog/2009/01/26/are-blue-state-digital-tracking-ngo-campaign-emails.html.

    In the aftermath of 9/11 the Bush Administration began monitoring all email, fax and telephone, conversations throughout the world in real time with the NASA Supercomputer. The initial purpose of the monitoring was to detect key words which would indicate a present intention to commit a terrorist act. Later it was modified to monitor the emotional state. This amounted to a warrantless search. So the Patriot Act was changed to permit the monitoring but the evidence was inadmissible as fruits of the poisonous tree. The Administration was reluctant to acknowledge the existence of such activities and unwilling to proceed to court on cases where they would be exposed in pre-trial discovery. There is reason to believe that Blue States wrote a program to mine that information as well.

    During the primary Obama deplored the illegal spying on Americans, but when he got to the general election he switched gears. Mainstream media excused this as simply moving to the center. But the logical inference is that he wanted to continue spying on Americans for security reasons and political ones as well. This is evident in reversal on FISA, his refusal to prosecute 40% of the cases, and his ability to tailor messages in real time. For example, when the national chatter decried his Stimulus Plan as a slush fund he quickly renamed it a “Safety Net”. Likewise, when he was called weak and indecisive on Afghanistan, the New York Times headline was immediately changed to read “Obama Convening War Council and Entering Decision Making Phase. For a general discussion of the subject the following article will be helpful: (“Government Turning to Data Mining” @http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp/dyn/content/article/2006/06/14/AR2006061402063.html.)

    The relationship between Soros and Blue Digital is a continuing one. As noted above, Soros is bullish on Brazil and is heavily invested in its economy. He is also trying to insinuate himself into its political system. Thus, it is hardly surprising that Blue States Digital would be down there with now working for the labor candidate in that election. Do not be surprised if Soros is paying for this. Do not be surprised if they show up as players in the next Soros Revolution.

    Step 10: Form the Shadow Government: at last count, Obama has 35 Czars and they preside over every aspect of the economy. They do not report to the Cabinet, they do not report to Congress, they report only to Obama. And, sometimes they do not report to anyone, they just act. A current example is the recent revelation that the Pay Czar acted alone when he slashed executive pay on Wall Street. To be clear, the issue is not the merits of the decision. After all, these executives worked for bailed out banks. The problem is the broad power exercised by an unsupervised bureaucrat. (See comprehensive List of Czars@ http://frontpage.americandaughter.com/?tag=behavioral-science-czar )

    But the larger question is what does all this portend? Does the creation of a Behavioral Czar indicate an intent by Soros to use the latest scientific methods to control the behavior of the American People? Should we read the book Beyond Freedom and Dignity by B. F. Skinner for clues? What is the Regulatory Czar up to? Does he intend to remove certain issues from the jurisdiction of American courts, and cede them to international bodies? Is he worried about the original intent philosophy of certain the members of the Supreme Court? Could that be why he is suddenly a devotee of judicial self restraint? Is he there to integrate our system of regulation with that of international bodies? I wonder . . .

    Will the ex-Green Jobs Czar who was fired for his racist statements continue to wield influence with the White House from the Soros organization he landed in? When he told us that rich white men cause pollution in black neighborhoods, was he suggesting that if there were no white men then we would have no pollution? Is he any relation to Reverend Wright? Ultimately, what is the real role of these Czars? Why are their activities shrouded in secrecy? Are they part of the Soros blueprint? Are they a conduit between Soros organizations and government? Are they there to pave the way for a transition to the New World Order? Echo answereth naught . . .

    CHAPTER 7: A POLITICIAN WHO STAYS BOUGHT

    President Roosevelt had four wise men, one of whom was George Kennan. He died a few years ago at the age of 101, his obituary consumed a full page of the New York Times, and they barely scratched the surface. He was most definitely a man of letters, as ill suited for the television age as many silent screen stars were for the age of sound in Hollywood. But in his time and place he was a giant. One of the things he said that resonated with me was that he would like to give those in power a sense of what he saw when he looked at current events through the lens of history so that our leaders do not drag us down those paths which lead only to despair and from which no one ever returns. . .

    If you look at the history of Mr. Obama as politician, the red flags were obvious. The Chicago machine has a long history of corruption, Obama had a stable meretricious relationship with a political fixer named Tony Rezko who is now a guest of the Federal Bureau of Prisons, and later he was the go to guy for insurance companies in Illinois and did the bidding for Excelon when they spilled trace amounts of nuclear waste into drinking water. In each case, the interests of constituents were implicated and in each case he sided with Big Business. My godfather was active in politics in the decades after World War II. He used to say an honest politician is one who stays bought. And what’s past is prologue.

    Since taking office, Obama has pursued the Soros Agenda relentlessly. Soros wanted a stimulus plan and Obama got one early. He told us it would keep unemployment under 8% whereas today it is near 10%. Soros wanted the Cap and Trade bill so he could corner the market in carbon credits. Obama pushed for that policy as well. Soros favored Government Health Care and Obama pursued it. These policies are not favored by the American people, therefore Soros cronies Pelosi and Reid are subverting the legislative process by preventing elected representatives from reading sweeping legislative proposals before voting on them, threatening their careers if they vote against them, and abusing the reconciliation process. And now we learn from a British Lord that Obama will go to Copenhagen in December to sign a treaty pledging huge sums of taxpayer money to compensate poor nations for “environmental damage”. This extravagant policy is favored by Soros as well. To run up a deficit of this magnitude during the worst economic debacle since the Great Depression while our currency is under attack by China, Russia, Iran, India, Pakistan and Brazil is not in the interests of America. But, it is part and parcel of the Soros Agenda.

    In the near term Obama will pursue other aspects of the Soros Agenda with equal verve. Soros favors open immigration because borders are a source of national identity and inhibit the free movement of people and goods. He blurs the line between citizen and non citizens for the same reason. He hates nationalism and sees himself as a “Citizen of the World”, above any nation—and so does Obama. Thus, it is hardly surprising that Obama will press for Immigration Reform with Amnesty, while his cronies in Congress push to include those illegal aliens in the upcoming Census to give him more seats in Congress.

    In Berlin Obama made a speech which thrilled mainstream media. They called it Reaganesque! It must have been the part about tearing down walls. Watch: “The walls between old allies on either side of the Atlantic cannot stand! The walls between the countries with the most and those with the least cannot stand!! The walls between races and tribes; natives and immigrants; Christian and Muslim and Jew cannot stand!!! These now are the walls we must tear down!!!!!!!!!!!!” When Obama thundered those words, he was not channeling Reagan. He was merely reading the script of the Open Society Institute position on open borders. What Soros Wanted Obama Delivers@ http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/10/what_soros_wanted_obama_delive.htm

    With respect to China, a red dawn is rising. Obama is actively soliciting Chinese investment in American real estate and businesses. After all we have land and they have our money. Furthermore, Obama is rumored to have an Executive Order on his desk which will permit massive immigration from Red China. If that is true, then we need only reflect upon the experience of our neighbor to the north to understand the inherent risks of that particular course of action. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police issued a report on that subject in 1997 which has since been scrubbed from the internet. In sum, it is no coincidence that that the lights of the Empire State Building burned red to celebrate the 1949 Chinese communist Revolution. From Soros perspective this would complete the process of global economic integration which began with MFN in 2000. Also, it would give his hedge fund and the banking interests he represents greater access to the Chinese economy, which grew at 8.9% notwithstanding the global slowdown.

    In due course, Obama will pursue the remaining aspects of the Soros Agenda. Specifically, he will surrender our sovereignty, i.e. our interests to global interests; our law to global courts; our wealth to global taxation; our productivity to schemes for global redistribution; and our Constitution, and Bill of Rights to a new social compact which elevates the power of the state over the freedom, liberty and security of the individual. Also, he will impose global responsibilities on the American People, without recourse. The targeted areas will be freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, the right to bear arms, treaty ratification requirement, internet control, the right of privacy, etc. The ultimate goal is Orwellian– to erase our national identity and make us all dutiful “citizens of the world”. Anyone who does not go along with the program is made out to be an enemy of the people. The Administration’s recent attempt to defrock the media voices who disagree with him is but a shadow of things to come. If you believe nothing else I have said, believe this: the totalitarian mind is predictable.
    ———————————————–

    CHAPTER 8: THE BRAVE NEW WORLD OF GEORGE SOROS

    When most Americans hear a politician talk about a New World Order, or in the vernacular NWO, they innocently assume that it means that America will retain its predominance and nations like China and India will become partners with us based on their growing economic stature. They further assume that these nations will help us address the multitude of problems facing the world from terrorism, to economic stability, to environmental affairs. These are rational assumptions given the fact that the United States has the greatest military in the world and the largest economy, four times that of its nearest competitor.
    George Soros has an entirely different take on what the New World Order will look like. What he foresees, and is working to bring about is a brave new world which replaces the present world order that is dominated by the United States with a new world order dominated by international bureaucrats. Those bureaucrats would regulate commercial transactions, protect the environment, and affect the constitutional rights of Americans. The “rich” nations would be compelled to spread their wealth at the whim of a bevy of Platonic Guardians. The political rights of the individual would be correspondingly diminished.

    His argument is simple: global markets require global regulation, whereas current regulations are rooted in sovereignty. Therefore we need global government. He then extends that argument to other areas like the environment and nuclear proliferation. (See: Soros: China to Emerge as Big Winner @ http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/bizchina/2009-10/31/content_8876424.htm) That is wrong. What global markets require is coordinated regulation through the collaborative efforts of sovereign states. Global standards do not require ipso facto the subordination of national sovereignty to world bureaucrats. If we succumb to that temptation we will lose freedom, democracy and the control of our destiny.
    The first step in the Soros scheme is financial. At the G 20 Summit in London, President Barack Obama won rave reviews from ignorant reporters, many of whom clamored for the chance to ask him a question at his news conference, but the official conference document proves that plans are being made for what can only be described as the looting of American taxpayers in order to feed unaccountable and corrupt global entities. (See”Obama Endorses Soros Plan To Loot America” @ http://www.newswithviews.com/Kincaid/cliff306.htm)

    This is not “global cooperation,” as so many in the media described it, but a massive new expansion of the power and authority of international agencies and institutions such as the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. By embracing the “global plan for recovery and reform,” which is how it was officially described, Obama explicitly endorsed International Monetary Fund (IMF) surveillance of the U.S. economy, creation of a global “Financial Stability Board,” the expanded use of a new global currency called Special Drawing Rights, a new global warming treaty. . . in addition to a trillion dollar commitment of taxpayer money to IMF and the World Bank. Meanwhile, Soros told CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo that the G 20 conference was a “success.” Henry Ford once said that the aim of international bankers is to control the world by creating “inextinguishable debt”. That is what Obama delivered at G 20—inextinguishable debt and glad handling. No wonder Merkel’s jaw dropped.

    Meanwhile, Soros is unfurling the white flag for America. Recently, he told the Financial Times that China should replace the United States as The Leader of the New World Order. He claims China is not pulling its weight in reorganizing the global economy after last year’s economic collapse, and the way to convince China is to allow it to “own” the reorganization of the global financial system that is underway. In addition, he says that the United States should surrender the dollar and accept the inevitability of a global currency (See Soros: China Should Lead the New World Order @ http://rawstory.com/2009/10/soros-china-world-order/.

    The second step in the Soros scheme is environmental. One of his associates is Maurice Strong (alias Chairman Mo). He is a Canadian oil billionaire who media describes as a cross between Rasputin and Machiavelli. Strong sits on the Chicago Climate Exchange Board, which makes a market in cap and trade. Also, Soros and Strong have a financial interest in the low cost energy efficient cars which are being produced now in China—I will say no more about that. Finally, Strong was the Secretary General of the 1992 United Nations (Earth II) Conference on the environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro. And on that auspicious occasion Chairman Mo gave us this pearl of post industrial wisdom:

    “Economic growth is not the cure—it is the disease. . . . Industrialized countries have developed and benefited from the unsustainable patterns of production and consumption which have produced our present dilemma. It is clear that current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class—involving high meat intake, consumption of large amounts of frozen and convenience foods, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work-place air-conditioning, and suburban housing—are not sustainable. A shift is necessary toward lifestyles less geared to environmentally damaging consumption patterns.” (Emphasis added). http://yedda.com/questions/New_World_Order_According_Maurice_5183161118675/

    In an interview with Bill Moyers, Soros tied Chairman Mo’s vision of saving the planet to the future world economy as follows: “You see, for the last 25 years the world economy, the motor of the world economy that has been driving it was consumption by the American consumer who has been spending more than he has been saving, all right? Than he’s been producing. So that motor is now switched off. It’s finished. It’s run out of — can’t continue. You need a new motor. And we have a big problem. Global warming. It requires big investment. And that could be the motor of the world economy in the years to come.” http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&amp

  31. Personally having Obama in as a muslim/muslim lover has embolden the muslims from Iran to the good ole USA.

  32. Anyone else remember a couple of months ago when all those terrorist plots were stifled by the press – the 6 NY prison converts trying to blow up a military installation, the 2 Arkansas soldiers killed by a recent convert –

    Squat has some tough choices tonight, use the Fort Hood slaughter to distract from the 20G on the Capitol Steps today chanting “Kill the Bill” or . . .

    Blockbuster: “OBAMA’S GODFATHER”

    As promised, the full Monty detailing the Obama-Soros connection and the ramifications to us of this malevolently inspired alliance. This research was compiled in the interests of informing the public of the dangers facing Americans of this unholy alliance. New Chapters (outlined below) will be posted daily over the next 8 days. Your comments and insights are welcome.

    CHAPTER I: THE NATURE OF THE BEAST
    A friend of mine who is politically astute told me that George Soros is “the godfather” of Mr. Obama and is using him as a tool to destroy our Constitution, turn us into a socialist country and establish a New World Order (NWO).

    to continue:
    pumasunleashed.wordpress.com/2009/11/05/blockbuster-obama’s-godfather/#comments

  34. From the Galveston Daily News;

    “They were telling him that one guy was shouting something in Arabic while he was shooting,” Tom Hunt said. “He couldn’t say much more than that.”

  35. Some HA poster comments:

    said Muslims had a right to stand up and fight against aggressors in iraq and Afghanistan

    Was VERY VOCAL ABOUT HIS VIEWS..HAD CONFRONTATION WITH ANOTHER SOLDIER ABOUT HIS VIEWS….

    Former co-worker says “something happened at Walter Reed for him to be transferred to Ft Hood”…
    Shep on with Colonel Lee who worked with Hassan. Said Hassan made several agitated comments about violence, perhaps, being what should be considered – that we had no business in Iraq or Afghanistan.

    person who new Hassan says that he was upset that Obama wasn’t pulling out troops. He vocalized these thoughts a lot and it was investigated.

    Former co-worker says “something happened at Walter Reed for him to be transferred to Ft Hood”…

    He graduated from Virginia tech.

    said Muslims had a right to stand up and fight against aggressors in iraq and Afghanistan

  36. JEEZUS!!!

    And he reportedly said this!

    AFTER LITTLE ROCK, ARK MUSLIM SHOT SOLDIERS AT RECRUITING OFFICE, HASAN SAID IT WAS JUSTIFIED…

  37. and the military didnt think, whoa, this guy needs to be discharged and not in charge of psychiatry of soldiers.

  38. birdgal, I think they have infiltrated our military. This is the only reason to be in the military.

    Someone said Obama was shitting himself, what did he say?? I guess he also believed the guy was justified.

  39. heres that doctor thing again…………….respectable jobs so no one suspects.

    A pharmacy college graduate was indicted Thursday on new charges in an alleged terror plot to kill two prominent U.S. politicians and shoot people at American shopping malls. Tarek Mehanna, of Sudbury, Mass., is accused of conspiring with two other men—Ahmad Abousamra, who authorities say is now in Syria, and an unnamed man who is now cooperating with authorities. Authorities said the men tried to get into terrorist training camps in the Middle East. When that failed, they allegedly talked about killing two members of the executive branch and plotted to randomly shoot mall shoppers.

  40. BTW, Mop, here are some posts about SquaT’S PRESSER.

    Is this what you thought?

    Just watched a sanitized replay on CNN of the original live version which I also watched on CNN and which is what I refer to in the above comment. The smiling, laughing, and joking by Obama’s introducer and Obama were edited out in the replay.

    Apparently Obama thinks there is nothing like a smile, some jokes, and a good laugh about three minutes before you start talking about a massacre of American soldiers in Texas.
    I heard it on the radio on the way home from work….very strange that he played to the crowd before, even joking about the ’shout out’, before he addressed the killing of 12 American Soldiers a few hours earlier.
    I guess what got me the most was when he called it an ‘incident’.

    I was waiting for him to tell us that the soldiers acted stupidly after stating “we don’t know all the details at this moment…”.

    BTW, is it me or does anyone else find it quite disturbing that it took him 2 MINUTES to even get around to talking about what happened at Ft. Hood? Unbelievable!!!

  41. -OBAMA’S GODFATHER-
    CHAPTER I: THE NATURE OF THE BEAST
    A friend of mine who is politically astute told me that George Soros is “the godfather” of Mr. Obama and is using him as a tool to destroy our Constitution, turn us into a socialist country and establish a New World Order (NWO).
    When I heard that allegation for the first time, I was as skeptical as you probably are hearing it now. How could one man do all this? What about Goldman Sachs, General Electric, the Chicago Machine etc.? There are legal checks and balances, are there not? The proposition was beyond the pale. Or so I thought.
    But then I remembered something Walter Cronkite said shortly before his death: “There is an elite class in this country comprised of the heads of finance and commerce who so manipulate democracy that they control democracy”. Suddenly, the proposition seemed more plausible than it did before.
    Then I reflected on the government takeover of our economy which has been initiated during the past nine months, from the taxpayer bailout of banks, to the stimulus plan, to GM, to cap and trade, to government health care, to G-20, to his shadow army of Czars, to Emanuel’s chutzpa “never let a good crisis go to waste”.
    As I dug deeper, I began to realize that each of those initiatives is favored and indeed advocated by one man—George Soros. Soros is a left wing billionaire, the agent of certain Anglo-European banking interests, the largest currency trader in the world, and the de facto head of the New Democratic Party.
    I discovered that Soros operates through two (2) principal organizations. One of them is the Quantum Fund. It is a hedge fund through which he is able to control currency markets. He is responsible for the European crash of 1992, and the Asian crisis of 1997. He is known as “The Man Who Broke the Bank of England”.
    His other organization is the Open Society Institute. It purports to be charitable enterprise, but is in fact a politically subversive one. It is a network of radical left wing think tanks, media outlets, and community organizing groups. The OSI does business in fifty-one (51) countries. It has been used to topple regimes.
    Soros utilized “shock doctrine” methods to bring down standing governments in Poland, Yugoslavia, Russia, Georgia, Ukraine, and install new ones who would support his globalist agenda. He ravaged their economies in the process. The overthrow of Edward Shevardnadze in Georgia is a paradigmatic example.
    Soros developed a unique set of tactics to subvert those governments. He leveraged the power of the internet, media, training centers, youth groups, chants, mass movement tactics, cult propaganda and a wall of money to secure the desired result. Those tactics proved successful for Soros in each case.
    Thereafter, Soros imported those methods into to the United States in a secret document called The Dean Plan. That document called for a charismatic leader who could inspire a mass movement, and advance a globalist agenda. Soros found those traits in a man named Barack Obama—scion of Reverend Wright.
    Soros original plan was to take over the Presidency in 2004 but it did not happen. Therefore, he selected Obama, met with him several times, introduced him to his money men and helped plan the campaign. He set up internet capability through Blue State Digital. He test marketed Obama through the Deval Patrick campaign.
    Soros took over the Democratic Party. He set up a “Shadow Party” of left wing issue advocacy groups, engineered a change in campaign finance law, diverted $300 million dollars in donations from the Democratic Party and used them to finance left wing candidates. That gave him de facto control over the Party.
    Soros implemented the Dean Plan in the 2008 Democratic Primary. He showed the Obama campaign how to co-opt the media and exploit its pathological hatred for Hillary Clinton. Also, he invested in their parent companies. I fully expect that Soros views them in the same terms Lenin did–useful idiots.
    If you study the primary you will see the hand of Soros at every turn, from his ACORN and SEIU thugs, to the 2000 complaints of voter fraud & intimidation, to the takeover of the Democratic National Committee, to the admission that Obama was pre-selected, to the disenfranchisement of voters by the Rules and Bylaws Committee, to the tidal wave of untraceable money.
    The General Election was simply more of the same. I tried to alert the other party to what had occurred in the primary, and the resulting threat to our nation. But they were unresponsive until the third debate. Thereafter, the stock market crashed, Obama was elected and Soros became the power behind the throne.
    Today, many Americans have become extremely apprehensive about Obama and where he is taking the country. But the false charge of racism has bludgeoned them into silence. Others continue to drink the Kool-Aid or are too intoxicated on the hatred of Bush to comprehend the truth about Obama.
    Frankly, that is not what we need in a democracy. This is not about one party or the other. This is about the survival of our nation. It is about the freedom, liberty, and security. The media made a Faustian Pact to worship Obama and destroy his opponents. As a result, Obama supporters became more cult-like and fanatical.
    Obama is advancing the Soros Agenda at the expense of the American People. His domestic policies will create “inextinguishable debt”. But his international policies are worse. Soros has stated that our nation is the “obstacle” to a just world order. Therefore, he is determined to “burst the bubble of American supremacy”.
    The overarching goal of Soros is to undermine our Constitution, move us to world government and redistribute our wealth—through “creative destruction”. If you think I am kidding, consider his latest statement: “global markets require global regulation but current regulation is rooted in the concept of sovereignty.”
    That statement seems innocent enough on its face. After all we live in an interconnected world, and certain threats such as terrorism, nuclear proliferation, financial collapse, etc. transcend national borders. But that does not mean we must surrender our sovereignty to a Bevy of Platonic guardians as he maintains.
    Nevertheless, that is the direction we are headed. It will be done through treaties and dilution of the 2/3 ratification requirement. At G-20, Obama surrendered our financial sovereignty, at Copenhagen he will agree to pay up to 2% of our GDP for environmental debt and he will attack our middle class with a consumption tax.
    At the same time, Soros is pushing for the destruction of the dollar. He claims that China and Brazil will be the “new engine of the world economy”, and the United States will be its “drag”. He wants to remove the dollar as the world reserve currency and substitute an international currency (SDRs) of his design.
    Unfortunately, the Soros Agenda does not end with the establishment of world government, and the looting of the middle class. There is a social dimension to it as well. In the broadest sense it is a new manifesto of the old gospel of the radical left, tied to the survival of the planet. The intimate details of this are closely held.
    If you still skeptical that one man could do all this then you are right in this sense. Goldman and others provided financial support for the Obama campaign, General Electric and others provided operational support through their journalistic lackeys at NBC and MSNBC. World bureaucrats like Maurice Strong are also implicated.
    But Soros is the Godfather of Obama. No one else had a tried and true turnkey operation for regime change. No one else pursued a ten (10) step strategy to put Obama in the White House. How else could a man with a hidden past and no real accomplishments rise to the pinnacle of power so quickly? Think about it. But now that Obama has been installed as President it is payback time. Obama is obligated to pursue the Soros Agenda. After all, that is what he is there for.
    Caveat: The Tea Parties were extremely effective in shutting down the initial attempt by Obama, Reid, Pelosi to impose national health care. The negative reception which Congressional Democrats received when the White House sent them home to deliver vague talking points forced them to retreat. The two million Americans who marched on the Capitol made them think twice about 2010.
    But George Soros is a patient man. Notice how the Democrats who were cowering in August are back again in full strength. They are now telling us that the polls say 57% of Americans want a public option. That is of course a lie–if the question reflects the actual cost. Furthermore, this is not about covering the uninsured. There are other ways to do that. This is about a takeover of 1/6 of our economy.
    (Note: there is a fair amount of information available on Soros. Frankly, some of it is credible and some is not. I have tried my best to determine what is credible and present it to you in a coherent framework. At this point, my motive is neither partisan nor mercenary. I simply want this country to survive and prosper again)

  42. birdgal,

    Evidently, Shep interviewed the cousin via telephone and he said poor Hasan had been harassed because of his religion.

    Then he said Hasan had been saying since 911 he didn’t want to be deployed to iraq or Afghnistan

    In the meantime, he got a poor review at Walter Reede and was transferred to Fort Hood.

    Something don’t add up, here.

    I refuse to watch Shep so I didn’t see the interview.

  43. OBAMA’S GODFATHER-

    CHAPTER I: THE NATURE OF THE BEAST

    A friend of mine who is politically astute told me that George Soros is “the godfather” of Mr. Obama and is using him as a tool to destroy our Constitution, turn us into a socialist country and establish a New World Order (NWO).

    When I heard that allegation for the first time, I was as skeptical as you probably are hearing it now. How could one man do all this? What about Goldman Sachs, General Electric, the Chicago Machine etc.? There are legal checks and balances, are there not? The proposition was beyond the pale. Or so I thought.

    But then I remembered something Walter Cronkite said shortly before his death: “There is an elite class in this country comprised of the heads of finance and commerce who so manipulate democracy that they control democracy”. Suddenly, the proposition seemed more plausible than it did before.

    Then I reflected on the government takeover of our economy which has been initiated during the past nine months, from the taxpayer bailout of banks, to the stimulus plan, to GM, to cap and trade, to government health care, to G-20, to his shadow army of Czars, to Emanuel’s chutzpa “never let a good crisis go to waste”.

    As I dug deeper, I began to realize that each of those initiatives is favored and indeed advocated by one man—George Soros. Soros is a left wing billionaire, the agent of certain Anglo-European banking interests, the largest currency trader in the world, and the de facto head of the New Democratic Party.

    I discovered that Soros operates through two (2) principal organizations. One of them is the Quantum Fund. It is a hedge fund through which he is able to control currency markets. He is responsible for the European crash of 1992, and the Asian crisis of 1997. He is known as “The Man Who Broke the Bank of England”.

    His other organization is the Open Society Institute. It purports to be charitable enterprise, but is in fact a politically subversive one. It is a network of radical left wing think tanks, media outlets, and community organizing groups. The OSI does business in fifty-one (51) countries. It has been used to topple regimes.

    Soros utilized “shock doctrine” methods to bring down standing governments in Poland, Yugoslavia, Russia, Georgia, Ukraine, and install new ones who would support his globalist agenda. He ravaged their economies in the process. The overthrow of Edward Shevardnadze in Georgia is a paradigmatic example.

    Soros developed a unique set of tactics to subvert those governments. He leveraged the power of the internet, media, training centers, youth groups, chants, mass movement tactics, cult propaganda and a wall of money to secure the desired result. Those tactics proved successful for Soros in each case.

    Thereafter, Soros imported those methods into to the United States in a secret document called The Dean Plan. That document called for a charismatic leader who could inspire a mass movement, and advance a globalist agenda. Soros found those traits in a man named Barack Obama—scion of Reverend Wright.

    Soros original plan was to take over the Presidency in 2004 but it did not happen. Therefore, he selected Obama, met with him several times, introduced him to his money men and helped plan the campaign. He set up internet capability through Blue State Digital. He test marketed Obama through the Deval Patrick campaign.

    Soros took over the Democratic Party. He set up a “Shadow Party” of left wing issue advocacy groups, engineered a change in campaign finance law, diverted $300 million dollars in donations from the Democratic Party and used them to finance left wing candidates. That gave him de facto control over the Party.

    Soros implemented the Dean Plan in the 2008 Democratic Primary. He showed the Obama campaign how to co-opt the media and exploit its pathological hatred for Hillary Clinton. Also, he invested in their parent companies. I fully expect that Soros views them in the same terms Lenin did–useful idiots.

    If you study the primary you will see the hand of Soros at every turn, from his ACORN and SEIU thugs, to the 2000 complaints of voter fraud & intimidation, to the takeover of the Democratic National Committee, to the admission that Obama was pre-selected, to the disenfranchisement of voters by the Rules and Bylaws Committee, to the tidal wave of untraceable money.

    The General Election was simply more of the same. I tried to alert the other party to what had occurred in the primary, and the resulting threat to our nation. But they were unresponsive until the third debate. Thereafter, the stock market crashed, Obama was elected and Soros became the power behind the throne.

    Today, many Americans have become extremely apprehensive about Obama and where he is taking the country. But the false charge of racism has bludgeoned them into silence. Others continue to drink the Kool-Aid or are too intoxicated on the hatred of Bush to comprehend the truth about Obama.

    Frankly, that is not what we need in a democracy. This is not about one party or the other. This is about the survival of our nation. It is about the freedom, liberty, and security. The media made a Faustian Pact to worship Obama and destroy his opponents. As a result, Obama supporters became more cult-like and fanatical.

    Obama is advancing the Soros Agenda at the expense of the American People. His domestic policies will create “inextinguishable debt”. But his international policies are worse. Soros has stated that our nation is the “obstacle” to a just world order. Therefore, he is determined to “burst the bubble of American supremacy”.

    The overarching goal of Soros is to undermine our Constitution, move us to world government and redistribute our wealth—through “creative destruction”. If you think I am kidding, consider his latest statement: “global markets require global regulation but current regulation is rooted in the concept of sovereignty.”

    That statement seems innocent enough on its face. After all we live in an interconnected world, and certain threats such as terrorism, nuclear proliferation, financial collapse, etc. transcend national borders. But that does not mean we must surrender our sovereignty to a Bevy of Platonic guardians as he maintains.

    Nevertheless, that is the direction we are headed. It will be done through treaties and dilution of the 2/3 ratification requirement. At G-20, Obama surrendered our financial sovereignty, at Copenhagen he will agree to pay up to 2% of our GDP for environmental debt and he will attack our middle class with a consumption tax.

    At the same time, Soros is pushing for the destruction of the dollar. He claims that China and Brazil will be the “new engine of the world economy”, and the United States will be its “drag”. He wants to remove the dollar as the world reserve currency and substitute an international currency (SDRs) of his design.

    Unfortunately, the Soros Agenda does not end with the establishment of world government, and the looting of the middle class. There is a social dimension to it as well. In the broadest sense it is a new manifesto of the old gospel of the radical left, tied to the survival of the planet. The intimate details of this are closely held.

    If you still skeptical that one man could do all this then you are right in this sense. Goldman and others provided financial support for the Obama campaign, General Electric and others provided operational support through their journalistic lackeys at NBC and MSNBC. World bureaucrats like Maurice Strong are also implicated.

    But Soros is the Godfather of Obama. No one else had a tried and true turnkey operation for regime change. No one else pursued a ten (10) step strategy to put Obama in the White House. How else could a man with a hidden past and no real accomplishments rise to the pinnacle of power so quickly? Think about it. But now that Obama has been installed as President it is payback time. Obama is obligated to pursue the Soros Agenda. After all, that is what he is there for.

    Caveat: The Tea Parties were extremely effective in shutting down the initial attempt by Obama, Reid, Pelosi to impose national health care. The negative reception which Congressional Democrats received when the White House sent them home to deliver vague talking points forced them to retreat. The two million Americans who marched on the Capitol made them think twice about 2010.

    But George Soros is a patient man. Notice how the Democrats who were cowering in August are back again in full strength. They are now telling us that the polls say 57% of Americans want a public option. That is of course a lie–if the question reflects the actual cost. Furthermore, this is not about covering the uninsured. There are other ways to do that. This is about a takeover of 1/6 of our economy.

    (Note: there is a fair amount of information available on Soros. Frankly, some of it is credible and some is not. I have tried my best to determine what is credible and present it to you in a coherent framework. At this point, my motive is neither partisan nor mercenary. I simply want this country to survive and prosper again)

    CHAPTER 2: MARKET MANIPULATION MADE EASY

    George Soros (Gyorgy Schwartz) was born in Hungary on August 12, 1930. He is a secular Jew and he grew up during Nazi Occupation. At the age of 14 he was employed to confiscate the personal effects of Jews who were loaded in box cars and sent to death camps. What a young man does in wartime to survive is between him and his conscience. What he says about it years later as an adult tells you a lot about his character. Soros appeared on Sixty Minutes on 2/20/92. Steve Croft showed him a film clip of Jews being herded into the box cars by Nazis and asked how he feels today as a fellow Jew about his role in that tragedy. Whereupon Soros told an incredulous Croft that he felt no remorse and went on to explain that this is the same way markets work—he was a winner and they were simply the losers.

    Two years after the War, Soros left Hungary and wandered through Europe as the Marshall Plan took shape. There is evidence that he was recruited by the British Secret Service, and if that is true then the similarity between him and Sidney Reilly (Ace of Spies) would be striking to say the least. He enrolled in the London School of Economics which was a Fabian socialist institution at the time. He studied under Karl Popper who preached about the virtues of an open society, and advocated among other things social engineering. In 1956, he came to the United States and became a citizen. He worked for a bank which was part of the Rothschild Empire, and there is evidence that he is still their agent. (Note: Baron Rothschild made his fortune speculating on the outcome of the Napoleonic War, with inside information and the hit and run tactic.)

    In 1969, Soros and the Rothschild bank established Double Eagle Hedge Fund which was later renamed the Soros Fund with the Quantum Fund as its flagship. From the beginning, those operations have been shrouded in secrecy and complexity. The Quantum Fund has 99 investors; they are among the wealthiest people in the world. Most of them are British or European. None are American.

    In 1996, an article appeared in The Investigative Executive Intelligence Review which identified who some of those investors were as of that date. Among them were Richard Katz (Rothschild & Sons Bank), Nils Tabor (James Capital Investment—Lord Jacob Rothschild), James Goldman (Rothschild’s cousin), Lord William Rees-Mogg (former editor of the Times of London, Vice Chairman of the British Broadcasting Company). All of those people belong to the ultra-conservative Club of Isles Thatcher wing of the Tory party— who still believe in economic colonialism and long for an Empire on which the sun never sets.
    Other known members of the Quantum Fund were European Bank officials from firms with drug connections. One of them was Edgar De Piccota of the Union Banque Privee. Three employees of his bank were charged with leading a multimillion dollar money laundering ring for Columbian cocaine and Turkish heroin. De Piccotta is also a business partner of Carlo De Benedetti who was charged with triggering the collapse of Banco Ambrosiano whose president was found hung at Black Friars Bridge in London in what police described as a Masonic ritual killing. Member Alberto Foglia is head of the Banca Del Ceresia in the town of Lugano. That town is across the Swiss border from Milan and is the banking haven for the Italian Mafia, and drug money laundering. (Note: that was 15 years ago. By now, some of those players may be gone. But the fact that they were there once and may still be there today proves that these are the kind of people Soros associates with. Their bona fides are questionable to say the least.)

    The Quantum Fund is registered in the Netherlands Antilles to avoid taxes, maintain confidentiality of its members and investment objectives. The Netherlands Antilles has been repeatedly cited as a center for the laundering of the illegal proceeds of the Latin American cocaine trade. Hedge funds are a known vehicle for such activities. Whether the Quantum Fund dabbles in drugs is not known. However, Soros is a major advocate for the legalization of marijuana.
    The Quantum Fund is a hedge fund. The fund manager, e.g. Soros, looks at a particular security (stock, commodity or currency) and decides whether it will go up or down during a short period. If the fund manager believes that the price of that security will go up, then he will purchase the security, sell it later at the higher price and make a profit. This is called “going long”. Conversely, if the fund manager believes the price of that security will go down, he will borrow the stock from a third party, sell it at the high price, repurchase the identical stock at the lower price, tender it to the buyer and make a profit. This is called selling short. “Today, if hedge funds shout fire in a crowded theatre, they can create a panic and then amuse themselves later by looting the dead bodies of those caught in the crush. A wall of money can make things happen.” (Mick Brooks).

    Soros is the largest currency trader in the world and he is known to manipulate markets in three generic ways. First, Soros never makes a market move without inside information according to those who do business with him. This has been confirmed by the insider trading fine which was levied against him in France, which he subsequently paid. Second, Soros uses organizations he controls through OSI to drive down stock prices of publicly held companies so he can buy low and sell high. For example, he used Move-On.org to attack Halliburton for precisely that reason. Third, Soros uses the “hit and run” tactic invented by the Baron himself (supra) to destroy a market where he has power. He makes a showing of buying a particular stock, others think he knows something and follow suit. The market goes up and a bubble forms. He quietly liquidates his holdings through confederates and takes a substantial profit. He leaves behind is a collapsed market and ruined investors.

    In 1992, Soros masterminded the European Market Crash when he shorted $10 billion worth of sterling, and forced the British government to spend £12 billion in an attempt to prop-up the rapidly devaluing currency. This wiped out the savings of working class people. Also it earned him the moniker of “The Man Who Broke the Bank of England”. The catastrophe he generated then spread to Germany which raised interest rates and to Italy where the lira was sharply devalued. Whereupon, Soros bragged “I made a billion as the pound crashed”. (LDM).

    In 1997, Soros initiated the Asian Market Crash when he short sold Thai currency. This created a domino effect that swept throughout Asia, leaving Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia and South Korea no choice but to float their currencies. Corporate profits in Thailand dropped 60% and growth rates fell to zero. For this skullduggery the Thai press branded Soros “an economic war criminal who sucks the blood of ordinary people”. (WSJ). The Prime Minister of Malaysia added: “The people have to be protected from George Soros, who has so much money and power but is totally thoughtless”

    CHAPTER 3: SHOCK DOCTRINE FOR DUMMIES

    In the Hindu trinity there is the god Brahma who is the Creator, the god Vishnu who is the Preserver and the god Rudra who is the destroyer of worlds. Like Rudra, George Soros is The Destroyer of Worlds.

    When the Soviet Union collapsed under a mountain of debt in the late 1980s, uncertainty ensued. A scholar named Francis Fukuyama published a book called “The End of History”. That book argued that ideological conflict was passé and the future belonged to markets. That argument seemed naïve to me, given what we had witnessed in Iran at the beginning of that decade. Nevertheless, the book was important for an entirely different reason, which I failed to appreciate at the time: fundamentally, it was a call to arms for the economic elites in the western world to abandon the old east-west paradigm and move aggressively toward a global economic model, which offered global capitalists lower costs of production and vast new markets which could be linked through supply chain strategies.

    More recently, author Naomi Klein wrote a revealing book called “Shock Doctrine”. This book describes in detail the principal vehicle used by the elites to impose the global model on targeted countries. The first step is to create or exploit a crisis to advance an agenda which could not survive the democratic process in normal times. The second step is to establish a new government in which multi-national corporations and political elites serve their own interests at the expense of the public. As Milton Freidman noted: only a crisis—actual or perceived produces—real change.

    Soros is no stranger to shock doctrine methods. He introduced them first in Poland. He forged a relationship with the Solidarity Movement and helped them bring down the communist government. He brought in his cronies for the ostensible purpose of moving the country from communism to a free market economy. Fundamentally, this meant a transition from state ownership to private ownership of large segments of the economy. To those with money it was a “buying opportunity”. Thus, Soros and his cronies purchased former state enterprises debt free and acquired resources at bargain basement prices. Many people lost their jobs as a result of this privatization. Soros was indifferent to their fate. He admits that he knew that his shock therapy would cause huge unemployment, closing of factories and social unrest. To him it did not matter.

    He introduced shock therapy again in Russia. The result was chaos and hyperinflation. The Yeltsin government imposed draconian cuts in state spending to industry and agriculture while the economy was still state owned. A goal of zero budget deficits in three months was announced. Credit to industry ended, businesses piled up debts and inflation went out of control. Meanwhile Soros associates moved in with hard currency and cornered the market on cheaply priced resources like aluminum and oil. These predations by Soros caused great suffering in Russia, and ill will toward the United States. (Note: this is why Putin turns a cold shoulder to his man Obama. Also, it helps explain why Russia has turned to China and forged an economic alliance adverse to our interests, apart from geopolitical and economic factors).

    Finally, Soros was an active participant in the efforts of British and American intelligence organizations to topple communist regimes in Yugoslavia (The Colors Revolution), Georgia (The Rose Revolution) and Ukraine (The Orange Revolution). Again, the mantra was to bring the fruits of democracy and the free market economy to former Soviet vassal states. Once again shock doctrine methods were deployed and they brought instability, violence and economic despair. The Russian Mafia filled the vacuum–Don Symon– Capo di tutti capi. (Note: the CIA uses the color revolution term to designate a Soros-directed revolution.)

    The last three cases are instructive for our purposes because new methods were used to topple those regimes and install governments who would play ball with Soros. Those methods were based on the tactics of Professor Gene Sharp, Chicago radical Saul Alinsky, and Italian communist Antonio Gramsci (The Prison Diaries). The common elements were as follows: 1) a charismatic leader, 2) a cult movement, 3) the conspicuous use of young people, 4) a three word message, 5) mind numbing chants, 6) symbols of change, 7) flash mobs, 8) media support, and 9) the entry of Soros agents into the new regime. (N.B. these methods have been given the euphemistic name “The Velvet Revolution”—or bloodless revolution. Soros would use them later in the Obama presidential campaign.)

    (Note: The Velvet Revolutions which Soros has launched around the world have been successful–with one exception: Iran. The government suppressed the rebellion violently and restored order. No one called it a Soros Revolution but it had the mark. Meanwhile, Soros associate Zbignew Brzezinski who served with him on the Council on Foreign Relations declared that if Israeli jets attack Iran, then U.S. planes should shoot them down. Now that is what you might call thinking outside the box, except for the inconvenient fact that Israel is one of our closest allies. Evidently, New World Order thinking is in the ascendant.)

  47. -OBAMA’S GODFATHER-

    CHAPTER 4: THE SCORPION AND THE FROG

    “Creative Destruction” is an economic theory which posits that companies who revolutionized and dominated industries lose their dominance over time as new players enter the market and introduce better products, more efficient methods and/or lower costs. (Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy: Schumpeter). The same can be said of nations. For example, the United States emerged from World War II as the production and consumption engine of the world. During the 1980s we lost our manufacturing sector to free trade policies and off-shoring to low cost countries. Eventually, that work migrated to China. Today, we are losing our consumption preeminence as well. The domestic consumption market in China is growing at over 20% per year. In our own hemisphere, Brazil and Venezuela are emerging as major sources of raw materials, production, and consumption.

    Soros is mindful of this tectonic shift in the world economy. He wants to work his way into the new markets while maintaining a presence in the old ones. Since his specialty is hedging he has positioned himself on both sides of the transaction. On the one hand, he is betting on the rise of China, Brazil and Venezuela. His objective is to become a political and economic player in those countries. On the other hand he is betting on the decline of the United States. And now that he has his man in the White House, he is in a position to push policies which will expedite the process of creative destruction. His immediate goal is to make money. His ultimate goal is to establish a New World Order as discussed below.
    Soros is supporting the economies of China, Brazil and Venezuela.

    His investment strategy tells the story: as of June 30, 2007, Soros manages $2.6 billion portfolio as of June 30, 2009. The breakdown by sector is: i) oil and gas: 49.3%, ii) consumer goods: 10.5%, iii) building materials: 10.4%, iv) financials: 6%, v) technology: 5.6%, vi) health care: 5.6% vii) utilities: 3.7%, vii) telecom: 1.9%, viii) consumer goods. The major stock holdings include four Brazilian oil companies (Baslierio, Petreloio, Petrolibrazil and S.A. Petrobras), TPX (domestic oil production), Extreme Networks (internet switching and load balancing), Preradata (intelligence gathering, warehousing and analyzing in 40 countries), Microsoft (software), Francetelecon (4th largest telecom in world), Teekay Tankers (oil transportation), Time-Warner (media: CNN, AOL, Time Magazine), Focus Media (largest advertising network in China). In the case of Brazil, Obama has given him a two billion dollar loan for his oil exploration activities, and Blue States Digital is working for one of the political candidates in that election. Finally, Soros owns an interest in 273 newspapers in 113 countries.

    Soros is undermining the economy of the United States in various ways. For example, he is betting against the dollar, recommending that it be replaced as the world reserve currency, and preaching a gloomy future for our economy. At the same time, he is pushing Obama to pursue policies which are suicidal to the nation, in a time of economic distress. The net effect has been to triple the deficit. This has caused China to stop buying U.S. Treasury Bills, and the dollar to lose 17% of its value since Obama took office.

    Moreover, Soros advocates policies which will destroy our identity and vitality as a nation. For example, you cannot have open immigration on the one hand and safety nets on the other without bankrupting the country—yet Soros proposes both. You cannot have a sovereign nation, and fund an organization like La Raza which advocates a break-up of the United States—yet Soros does this. But if your goal is to eliminate borders, erase a national identity and create a North American Union then those positions are not inconsistent. Likewise, if you want a strong economy then you must produce goods and services. But if you force entire industries off shore by funding radical environmentalism as Soros does and must therefore import what need, then you will become dependent on other nations for your survival and you will have massive unemployment. It is no mystery why Soros does this. First, last and always he is a global capitalist committed to a policy of creative destruction.

    Shortly after Soros invested heavily in Brazilian Oil (Petrobas) Obama promised 10 billion of our tax dollars to Brazil so they could expand their offshore oil fields. Now that may be a windfall for Soros and Brazil, but it is a bad deal for the U.S. The American Petroleum Institute estimates that oil exploration in the U.S. could create 160,000 new, well-paying jobs, as well as $1.7 trillion in revenues to federal, state, and local governments, all while fostering greater energy security. Do you get the feeling that American taxpayers are being treated like gullible suckers?” (

    How could a man like Soros who left the devastation post-war Europe, came to the safety and security of the United States and was able to make a fortune here ever turn on America? The answer lies in the parable of the scorpion and the frog: the scorpion asked the frog for a ride across the pond. The frog refused because the scorpion might sting him. The scorpion assured the frog that he would never do that because they would both drown. Finally, the frog relented and let the scorpion ride across the pond on his back. Half way across, the scorpion stung the frog. As they both sunk to the bottom, the frog asked the scorpion “Why did you kill me?” The scorpion replied “Because it is in my nature”.

  48. -OBAMA’S GODFATHER-

    CHAPTER 5: OH WHAT TANGLED WEBS WE WEAVE . . .

    “Oh what tangled webs we weave–when first we practice to deceive”. . . In 1979, Soros established an organization called The Open Society Institute. The stated purpose of that organization is: “to build vibrant and tolerant democracies whose governments are accountable to their citizens. . . to shape public policies that assure greater fairness in political, legal and economic systems and safeguard fundamental rights . . . to implement a range of initiatives to advance justice, education, public health and independent media . . . to build alliances across borders and continents on issues such as corruption and freedom of information . . . to improve the lives of people in marginalized communities . . . etc.”(See OSI Mission Statement.)

    You may wonder how a man like Soros who has no regrets about confiscating the personal effects of Jews bound for Nazi death camps, and no qualms about decimating the life savings of working class people through predatory currency speculation in Britain, or using shock therapy to loot the economies of eastern Europe causing massive unemployment and suffering, could have any legitimate desire to “promote justice, fight corruption and improve the lives of people in marginalized communities”. You may wonder even more why he would contribute $5 billion dollars to that goal. It seems a bit out of character.

    The Gilded Age provides a possible answer to the question. Andrew Carnegie made a fortune in the steel business along the Monongahela River and then wrote an essay called “The Gospel of Wealth”. The central premise was the wealthy entrepreneur must dispense his fortune in a socially beneficial way, and not allow it to be wasted on frivolous expenditure. (Wikipedia). To that end, Carnegie gave money to libraries and other socially worthwhile causes. However, there is no evidence that Carnegie ever sought to destroy the United States so he could construct a New World Order. Obviously, Soros is not Carnegie.

    To comprehend the true motive of a man like Soros, we must analyze the nature of the organizations he is funding. Then we must think about how they fit in an overall plan of creative destruction. The first subset consists of entities which have a charitable purpose. Soros builds global good will through them. The second subset consists of entities which have a distinctly political purpose. They include radical left wing think tanks, law firms, academic groups, internet companies, media outlets, media watchdogs, bloggers and community activists.

    The operative question, then, is why does Soros fund these groups? Because he uses these organizations to subvert governments that will not play ball with his globalist agenda and replace them with ones that will. As Neil Clark put it, Soros used the Open Society Institute to weaken the existing political structures and pave the way for Eastern Europe’s eventual colonization by global capital.”

    The Velvet Revolution in Georgia is the paradigmatic example. In 2003 Soros targeted Georgian President Eduard Shevardnadze for overthrow. Soros’ aim was the destruction of Russia as a world power. Eliminating Russian influence and replacing it with new regimes hostile to Russia was his goal. Soros had originally sought to control Shevardnadze, having met him in the 1980s when Saakashvili was Soviet foreign minister. Even then Soros was setting up his Open Society Institute in Georgia. In 2002 Shevardnadze made complaints against what he deemed Soros’ subversive activities. Soros responded that Shevardnadze could not be trusted to hold fair elections, and that he would mobilize his street lackeys, adding: “This is what we did in Slovakia at the time of Meciar, in Croatia at the time of Tudjman and in Yugoslavia at the time of Milosevic.”
    The Soros’ Open Society Institute sent a 31-year-old Tbilisi activist named Giga Bokeria to Serbia to meet with members of the Otpor (Resistance) movement and learn how they used street demonstrations to topple dictator Slobodan Milosevic. Then, in the summer, Mr. Soros’s foundation paid for a return trip to Georgia by Otpor activists, who ran three-day courses teaching more than 1,000 students how to stage a peaceful revolution.” (Note: like Camp Obama perhaps?) Soros gave the anti-Shevardnadze movement a considerable nudge: He also funded a popular opposition television station that was crucial in mobilizing support for this week’s “velvet revolution,” and he reportedly gave financial support to a youth group that led the street protests.” The street protest eventually forced Shevardnadze to sign his resignation papers.

    (Note: In the eyes of Mr. Soros’s employees, it was all done in the name of building democracy. The useful idiots of the Left had done the work of a globalist money speculator, marching under self-proclaimed ‘high ideals’, again fulfilling Oswald Spengler’s political dictum that ‘there is not a left-wing movement, not even the communists, who do not operate in the interests dictated by Money).

    CHAPTER 6: THE DEVIL’S COUP D’ ETAT

    Step 1: Corrupt the Campaign Law: The McCain-Feingold Act was passed in 2002 to limit the power of big money in elections. It prohibited soft money donations to political parties. That was a major blow to the Democratic Party which had traditionally relied on soft money donations from unions. However, Soros and others spent $140 million to create an exception to that law which allowed big money donations to come in through the back door with 527 issue advocacy groups which he would form. The exception swallowed the rule.

    Step 2: Create the Shadow Party: in 2003, Soros inter alia created a nation-wide network of think tanks, activist groups and unions which are part of the radical left wing base of the Democratic Party. Conservative thinker and former anti-war radical David Horowitz (Radical Son) called this network “The Shadow Party”. This network of organizations masqueraded as mainstream Democrats, when in fact they were not. As Soros himself conceded: “the Democratic Party does not stand for the principles that I advocate; if it did it could not be elected.”

    Step 3: Line Up Billionaires: in the summer of 2002 Soros summoned a team of political strategists, activists and Democrat donors to his Southampton beach house in Long Island. At the meeting, Soros laid out his plan to take over the White House. A liberal activist group Americans Coming Together (ACT) proposed to mobilize voters in 17 battleground states. Soros told them he would give ACT $10 million. Before coffee the next morning, his friend Peter Lewis, chairman of the Progressive Corp., had pledged $10 million to ACT. Rob Glaser, CEO of Real Networks, promised $2 million. Rob McKay, President of the McKay Family Foundation, gave $1 million. Soros also promised $3 million to The Center for American Progress. (WashPo 11/13/03).

    In 2005, Soros set up a network of left wing think tanks and advocacy groups called the Democracy Alliance. Then, he prevailed upon eighty wealthy leftists to pledge one $1 million or more over a five year period, and 1000 more leftists to contribute $250,000. The principal beneficiaries were Media Matters (a left wing propaganda machine to counter the conservative media), the Center for American Progress headed up by John Podesta, and America Votes.

    Step 4: Take Over the Democratic Party: When the Democratic Party lost the ability to rely on soft money it panicked. Soros provided them with a solution which calls to mind the old saying beware of Greeks (or Hungarians) bearing gifts. The metaphor of the Trojan Horse is apt, for he invited the big money donors to contribute to his network in lieu of the Democratic Party itself. As a result, he siphoned off $300 million from the Party, and contributed it to support leftist candidates. In essence he privatized the Democratic Party.

    Step 5: Plan the Velvet Revolution: in 2004, Soros cronies developed a secret campaign strategy called The Dean Plan based on the Velvet Revolution Model. The stated objectives of the Dean Plan can be summarized as follows: 1) create a base of support outside the traditional Democratic Party and focus on that 10% of the electorate who are influential within their peer group or on the web, 2) create a web of small donors to offset the major donors of the Democratic Party, and supplement them through 527 PACs with unlimited contributions, 3) create a cult movement which appeals to young people and diverse populations, 4) drive home the theme of change with arguments and symbols, 5) bring left wing media commentators on board, 6) create an echo chamber in mainstream media, talk radio and the web, 7) select a candidate with no national name recognition, charisma and the stamina for a national campaign.

    Step 6: Select the Charismatic Candidate: In 2002 Howard Dean identified a candidate who met those criteria. Dean placed him on a list called “The Dean Dozen”. He was a Harvard Law School graduate, a no show Editor of the Harvard Law Review, a scion of the powerful Chicago political machine, and a state senator from Illinois. He was former community organizer for ACORN. His name was Obama. He was young and had a hypnotic timbre to his voice. He believed he could “make people believe anything he wants them to believe”. He was unknown to the national audience, and the paper trail on him from birth certificate to transcripts was hidden from public view. Consequently, the Dream Factory was free to define him to the county as they saw fit–in two best selling “autobiographies”. The wild card was his race. They did not know whether a predominantly white electorate would vote for a black candidate. So they tested the proposition by running an Obama clone in Massachusetts, and Axelrod managed the campaign. When Deval Patrick won the governorship, the question was answered in the affirmative. That is why Obama plagiarized Patrick speeches—they were afraid to deviate from the script one iota.

    Step 7: Become Obama’s Godfather: Soros backed Dean in 2004. When Dean’s candidacy ended in the memorable Dean Scream, he withdrew from the race, and turned his army of bloggers over to Obama. Then, he introduced Obama to Soros, who made a $60,000 contribution to Obama’s Illinois Senate Campaign. During the next two years, Soros met with Obama on several occasions. Soros presented Obama to his cabal of money men from major domestic and foreign banking firms. In one instance, he and Obama staged a mock debate over AIRPAC wherein Obama took the side of Israel and Soros took the contrarian side to impress wealthy Jewish donors that Obama was on their side. In January 2008, Soros crony Wolf from the Swiss Bank UBC helped Obama plan his campaign. Ultimately, what Soros saw in Obama was a candidate who fit the Dean Plan, could inspire a world-wide movement and was the quintessence of what every big businessman hopes for in a public servant, namely a politician who takes orders and stays bought.

    Step 8: Rig the Primary: In the Early States Soros funded organizations like ACORN hired street thugs and many were trained at Camp Obama on how to subvert the democratic process. The inevitable result was pervasive voter fraud and intimidation. In my own travels, I saw orderly caucuses and disorderly ones. Two thousand (2000) complaints were filed against the Obama campaign. Many of those complaints were serious. See Texas caucus fraud. However, they were ignored by the Democratic National Committee, which was presided over by Soros confederates Dean, Pelosi and Brazile. Meanwhile, the Obama campaign introduced the race card. They called Bill and Hillary racists, while Obama himself maintained plausible deniability—like he always does. MSNBC pundit Chuck Todd accused white New Hampshire voters of racism. The charge was total fabrication. But it destroyed Hillary’s black support. False charges of racism are the last bastion of scoundrels.

    In the Middle States the nomination was up in the air. Obama met with Governor Rendell of Pennsylvania, who was a Hillary supporter. Obama warned Rendell to go easy on him because he would be the nominee. Rendell was puzzled by the comment because it was the middle of the primary and he was unaware of that Soros and others had chosen Obama to be the nominee before the voters had spoken. Also, politicians of easy virtue like Dodd, Leahy and Kennedy called on Hillary to withdraw from the race because it was hurting the party for her to continue until every state had a chance to vote. All three were tied to Soros.

    In the Late States where Soros- influenced media shills attacked Hillary at every turn. CNN retained strategists attached words like polarizing to her and their talking heads repeated them continually. Soros is heavily invested in AOL Time Warner which is the parent organization of CNN. Not to be outdone, MSNBC unleashed a flood tide of sexism and even attacked Chelsie for speaking on behalf of her mother. The New York chapter of NOW picketed MSNBC offices, and Steve Capus was forced to muzzle Matthews. However, he reassigned the attack dog role to Olberman, who subtley suggested that if Hillary would not withdraw from the race that someone should take her in the backroom and beat her to death. The blatant partisanship of the NBC/MSNBC goes beyond political preferences of individuals and can be traced to the business interests of their parent organization General Electric. GE is a dominant player in the nuclear power industry and Obama is ready, willing and able to push that agenda. Today, their CEO Jeff Imelt is a key economic advisor to the President. Not to be outdone, Jake Tapper of ABC compared Hillary to Tanya Harding and thus implied that she would break Obama’s knees to win the nomination. Nuts. ABC now has the inside track with the Obama Administration with George Stephanopoulos and Linda Douglass (truth squad) operating as part of the Obama White House. No wonder the American People have moved en masse to FOX.

    At the conclusion of the campaign, the Soros controlled Rules and By-Laws Committee met to decide how the votes cast by Florida and Michigan would be allocated. Obama was not on the ballot in Michigan and yet the Committee awarded him delegates that Hillary won. This was a blatant violation of the core party principle of “fair reflection”. The rules had to be trashed to ensure Obama got the nomination. Thereafter, the Soros controlled DNC threatened to cut off funds to the state delegations who supported Hillary. Also, threats were issued to Hillary’s superdelegates that the party would field candidates to run against them in their primaries if they did not switch to Obama. They forced them to sign pledges to support Obama. Speaker Pelosi told them to support Obama not because of capacity for leadership, but because he brought in so much money.

    At the Convention, the fine young cannibals who were there to support Obama tried to bribe Hillary delegates to change their votes and if they would not change they harassed them. A complaint was drafted to the Secretary of State of California protesting this. But in the end, Hillary conceded. The Party that Soros controlled disrespected Hillary and her 18 million supporters. She won more primary votes than any Democratic candidate in history, including Obama. But real democracy does not count when you are dealing with Soros.

    (Note: as you can see, the nomination process was a sham. Soros controlled the Party and he made sure that Obama got the nomination. Hillary offered detailed solutions to our nation’s problems, whereas Obama had no real solutions- but oh so much hope. Many well meaning people responded to that emotion, and felt a sense of personal triumph when he took the oath of Office. They never worried about his background, never studied what he did in Illinois, and never guessed that there was a man behind him like Soros pulling the strings. But they loved the bread and circuses. Today many of them defend him still on the mistaken assumption that he represents them. He is their sun, their moon, their east, their west and nothing else matters. Others, who have some grasp of reality look at him now and wonder what happened to the man they voted for.)

    But mainstream media bears the ultimate responsibility here. They knew who Soros is and what he does. After all, Brokaw, Moyers and others sit on his boards. Nevertheless, they embraced Obama, trashed his opponents and sailed down the river of no return—why? I believe it was because the two prior administrations held them at arm’s length. What they saw in Obama was likeability, the promise of access and influence, and the rare opportunity to be part of the governing coalition. Now that is heady stuff. Therefore, they abdicated the role of journalist—which is crucial to a functional democracy and entered into a Faustian Pact. Now, they live with the contradictions every day.)

    Step 9: Spy on Americans: Soros knows that information is power. Therefore he invested in a data mining company early in the game. In 2004, four operatives in the Dean Presidential Campaign founded a company called Blue States Digital to conduct online fundraising, communicating and organizing of support for political candidates and causes. In 2006 Soros became a client. Blue States worked closely with the Obama campaign. They sent out campaign emails to supporters with instructions to forward that email to five (5) like-minded people, and secretly monitored and recorded the email addresses to which the email was sent. In other words, the Obama campaign spied on its own supporters.

    In the aftermath of 9/11 the Bush Administration began monitoring all email, fax and telephone, conversations throughout the world in real time with the NASA Supercomputer. The initial purpose of the monitoring was to detect key words which would indicate a present intention to commit a terrorist act. Later it was modified to monitor the emotional state. This amounted to a warrantless search. So the Patriot Act was changed to permit the monitoring but the evidence was inadmissible as fruits of the poisonous tree. The Administration was reluctant to acknowledge the existence of such activities and unwilling to proceed to court on cases where they would be exposed in pre-trial discovery. There is reason to believe that Blue States wrote a program to mine that information as well.

    During the primary Obama deplored the illegal spying on Americans, but when he got to the general election he switched gears. Mainstream media excused this as simply moving to the center. But the logical inference is that he wanted to continue spying on Americans for security reasons and political ones as well. This is evident in reversal on FISA, his refusal to prosecute 40% of the cases, and his ability to tailor messages in real time. For example, when the national chatter decried his Stimulus Plan as a slush fund he quickly renamed it a “Safety Net”. Likewise, when he was called weak and indecisive on Afghanistan, the New York Times headline was immediately changed to read “Obama Convening War Council and Entering Decision Making Phase.

    The relationship between Soros and Blue Digital is a continuing one. As noted above, Soros is bullish on Brazil and is heavily invested in its economy. He is also trying to insinuate himself into its political system. Thus, it is hardly surprising that Blue States Digital would be down there with now working for the labor candidate in that election. Do not be surprised if Soros is paying for this. Do not be surprised if they show up as players in the next Soros Revolution.

    Step 10: Form the Shadow Government: at last count, Obama has 35 Czars and they preside over every aspect of the economy. They do not report to the Cabinet, they do not report to Congress, they report only to Obama. And, sometimes they do not report to anyone, they just act. A current example is the recent revelation that the Pay Czar acted alone when he slashed executive pay on Wall Street. To be clear, the issue is not the merits of the decision. After all, these executives worked for bailed out banks. The problem is the broad power exercised by an unsupervised bureaucrat. (See comprehensive List of Czars@ http://frontpage.americandaughter.com/?tag=behavioral-science-czar )

    But the larger question is what does all this portend? Does the creation of a Behavioral Czar indicate an intent by Soros to use the latest scientific methods to control the behavior of the American People? Should we read the book Beyond Freedom and Dignity by B. F. Skinner for clues? What is the Regulatory Czar up to? Does he intend to remove certain issues from the jurisdiction of American courts, and cede them to international bodies? Is he worried about the original intent philosophy of certain the members of the Supreme Court? Could that be why he is suddenly a devotee of judicial self restraint? Is he there to integrate our system of regulation with that of international bodies? I wonder . . .

    Will the ex-Green Jobs Czar who was fired for his racist statements continue to wield influence with the White House from the Soros organization he landed in? When he told us that rich white men cause pollution in black neighborhoods, was he suggesting that if there were no white men then we would have no pollution? Is he any relation to Reverend Wright? Ultimately, what is the real role of these Czars? Why are their activities shrouded in secrecy? Are they part of the Soros blueprint? Are they a conduit between Soros organizations and government? Are they there to pave the way for a transition to the New World Order? Echo answereth naught . . .

  52. -OBAMA’S GODFATHER-

    CHAPTER 7: A POLITICIAN WHO STAYS BOUGHT

    President Roosevelt had four wise men, one of whom was George Kennan. He died a few years ago at the age of 101, his obituary consumed a full page of the New York Times, and they barely scratched the surface. He was most definitely a man of letters, as ill suited for the television age as many silent screen stars were for the age of sound in Hollywood. But in his time and place he was a giant. One of the things he said that resonated with me was that he would like to give those in power a sense of what he saw when he looked at current events through the lens of history so that our leaders do not drag us down those paths which lead only to despair and from which no one ever returns. . .

    If you look at the history of Mr. Obama as politician, the red flags were obvious. The Chicago machine has a long history of corruption, Obama had a stable meretricious relationship with a political fixer named Tony Rezko who is now a guest of the Federal Bureau of Prisons, and later he was the go to guy for insurance companies in Illinois and did the bidding for Excelon when they spilled trace amounts of nuclear waste into drinking water. In each case, the interests of constituents were implicated and in each case he sided with Big Business. My godfather was active in politics in the decades after World War II. He used to say an honest politician is one who stays bought. And what’s past is prologue.

    Since taking office, Obama has pursued the Soros Agenda relentlessly. Soros wanted a stimulus plan and Obama got one early. He told us it would keep unemployment under 8% whereas today it is near 10%. Soros wanted the Cap and Trade bill so he could corner the market in carbon credits. Obama pushed for that policy as well. Soros favored Government Health Care and Obama pursued it. These policies are not favored by the American people, therefore Soros cronies Pelosi and Reid are subverting the legislative process by preventing elected representatives from reading sweeping legislative proposals before voting on them, threatening their careers if they vote against them, and abusing the reconciliation process. And now we learn from a British Lord that Obama will go to Copenhagen in December to sign a treaty pledging huge sums of taxpayer money to compensate poor nations for “environmental damage”. This extravagant policy is favored by Soros as well. To run up a deficit of this magnitude during the worst economic debacle since the Great Depression while our currency is under attack by China, Russia, Iran, India, Pakistan and Brazil is not in the interests of America. But, it is part and parcel of the Soros Agenda.

    In the near term Obama will pursue other aspects of the Soros Agenda with equal verve. Soros favors open immigration because borders are a source of national identity and inhibit the free movement of people and goods. He blurs the line between citizen and non citizens for the same reason. He hates nationalism and sees himself as a “Citizen of the World”, above any nation—and so does Obama. Thus, it is hardly surprising that Obama will press for Immigration Reform with Amnesty, while his cronies in Congress push to include those illegal aliens in the upcoming Census to give him more seats in Congress.

    In Berlin Obama made a speech which thrilled mainstream media. They called it Reaganesque! It must have been the part about tearing down walls. Watch: “The walls between old allies on either side of the Atlantic cannot stand! The walls between the countries with the most and those with the least cannot stand!! The walls between races and tribes; natives and immigrants; Christian and Muslim and Jew cannot stand!!! These now are the walls we must tear down!!!!!!!!!!!!” When Obama thundered those words, he was not channeling Reagan. He was merely reading the script of the Open Society Institute position on open borders.

    With respect to China, a red dawn is rising. Obama is actively soliciting Chinese investment in American real estate and businesses. After all we have land and they have our money. Furthermore, Obama is rumored to have an Executive Order on his desk which will permit massive immigration from Red China. If that is true, then we need only reflect upon the experience of our neighbor to the north to understand the inherent risks of that particular course of action. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police issued a report on that subject in 1997 which has since been scrubbed from the internet. In sum, it is no coincidence that that the lights of the Empire State Building burned red to celebrate the 1949 Chinese communist Revolution. From Soros perspective this would complete the process of global economic integration which began with MFN in 2000. Also, it would give his hedge fund and the banking interests he represents greater access to the Chinese economy, which grew at 8.9% notwithstanding the global slowdown.

    In due course, Obama will pursue the remaining aspects of the Soros Agenda. Specifically, he will surrender our sovereignty, i.e. our interests to global interests; our law to global courts; our wealth to global taxation; our productivity to schemes for global redistribution; and our Constitution, and Bill of Rights to a new social compact which elevates the power of the state over the freedom, liberty and security of the individual. Also, he will impose global responsibilities on the American People, without recourse. The targeted areas will be freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, the right to bear arms, treaty ratification requirement, internet control, the right of privacy, etc. The ultimate goal is Orwellian– to erase our national identity and make us all dutiful “citizens of the world”. Anyone who does not go along with the program is made out to be an enemy of the people. The Administration’s recent attempt to defrock the media voices who disagree with him is but a shadow of things to come. If you believe nothing else I have said, believe this: the totalitarian mind is predictable

  53. OBAMA’S GODFATHER-

    CHAPTER 8: THE BRAVE NEW WORLD OF GEORGE SOROS

    When most Americans hear a politician talk about a New World Order, or in the vernacular NWO, they innocently assume that it means that America will retain its predominance and nations like China and India will become partners with us based on their growing economic stature. They further assume that these nations will help us address the multitude of problems facing the world from terrorism, to economic stability, to environmental affairs. These are rational assumptions given the fact that the United States has the greatest military in the world and the largest economy, four times that of its nearest competitor.

    George Soros has an entirely different take on what the New World Order will look like. What he foresees, and is working to bring about is a brave new world which replaces the present world order that is dominated by the United States with a new world order dominated by international bureaucrats. Those bureaucrats would regulate commercial transactions, protect the environment, and affect the constitutional rights of Americans. The “rich” nations would be compelled to spread their wealth at the whim of a bevy of Platonic Guardians. The political rights of the individual would be correspondingly diminished.

    His argument is simple: global markets require global regulation, whereas current regulations are rooted in sovereignty. Therefore we need global government. He then extends that argument to other areas like the environment and nuclear proliferation. (See: Soros: China to Emerge as Big Winner @ http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/bizchina/2009-10/31/content_8876424.htm) That is wrong. What global markets require is coordinated regulation through the collaborative efforts of sovereign states. Global standards do not require ipso facto the subordination of national sovereignty to world bureaucrats. If we succumb to that temptation we will lose freedom, democracy and the control of our destiny.

    The first step in the Soros scheme is financial. At the G 20 Summit in London, President Barack Obama won rave reviews from ignorant reporters, many of whom clamored for the chance to ask him a question at his news conference, but the official conference document proves that plans are being made for what can only be described as the looting of American taxpayers in order to feed unaccountable and corrupt global entities. (See”Obama Endorses Soros Plan To Loot America”)

    This is not “global cooperation,” as so many in the media described it, but a massive new expansion of the power and authority of international agencies and institutions such as the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. By embracing the “global plan for recovery and reform,” which is how it was officially described, Obama explicitly endorsed International Monetary Fund (IMF) surveillance of the U.S. economy, creation of a global “Financial Stability Board,” the expanded use of a new global currency called Special Drawing Rights, a new global warming treaty. . . in addition to a trillion dollar commitment of taxpayer money to IMF and the World Bank. Meanwhile, Soros told CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo that the G 20 conference was a “success.” Henry Ford once said that the aim of international bankers is to control the world by creating “inextinguishable debt”. That is what Obama delivered at G 20—inextinguishable debt and glad handling. No wonder Merkel’s jaw dropped.

    Meanwhile, Soros is unfurling the white flag for America. Recently, he told the Financial Times that China should replace the United States as The Leader of the New World Order. He claims China is not pulling its weight in reorganizing the global economy after last year’s economic collapse, and the way to convince China is to allow it to “own” the reorganization of the global financial system that is underway. In addition, he says that the United States should surrender the dollar and accept the inevitability of a global currency.

    The second step in the Soros scheme is environmental. One of his associates is Maurice Strong (alias Chairman Mo). He is a Canadian oil billionaire who media describes as a cross between Rasputin and Machiavelli. Strong sits on the Chicago Climate Exchange Board, which makes a market in cap and trade. Also, Soros and Strong have a financial interest in the low cost energy efficient cars which are being produced now in China—I will say no more about that. Finally, Strong was the Secretary General of the 1992 United Nations (Earth II) Conference on the environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro. And on that auspicious occasion Chairman Mo gave us this pearl of post industrial wisdom:

    “Economic growth is not the cure—it is the disease. . . . Industrialized countries have developed and benefited from the unsustainable patterns of production and consumption which have produced our present dilemma. It is clear that current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class—involving high meat intake, consumption of large amounts of frozen and convenience foods, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work-place air-conditioning, and suburban housing—are not sustainable. A shift is necessary toward lifestyles less geared to environmentally damaging consumption patterns.” (Emphasis added).

    In an interview with Bill Moyers, Soros tied Chairman Mo’s vision of saving the planet to the future world economy as follows: “You see, for the last 25 years the world economy, the motor of the world economy that has been driving it was consumption by the American consumer who has been spending more than he has been saving, all right? Than he’s been producing. So that motor is now switched off. It’s finished. It’s run out of — can’t continue. You need a new motor. And we have a big problem. Global warming. It requires big investment. And that could be the motor of the world economy in the years to come.”

    Given Soros position on the matter, it is hardly surprising that his man Obama would declare during the campaign that climate change would be a priority in his Administration; or that he would appoint Carol Browner as his Climate Czar; or that she would be a former member of the Socialist International Commission’s Society for a Sustainable World Society; or that they would declare that global governance is the solution to the world’s problems of peace and climate change; or that salvation lies in shrinking the economies of the industrialized countries; or that the Obama transition team would say her membership in that highfalutin church is “not a problem”. Nor is it surprising that Obama is planning to go to Copenhagen in December to sign the Kyoto Treaty authored by Chairman Mo. As Sherlock Holmes would say, it is elementary my dear Watson.

    Now Chairman Mo would have us believe that this treaty is the only alternative to the fiery death of our planet. But as All American Blogger reports, there is more to the story. It seems many global advocates see Kyoto and other treaties as instruments of power politics. . . EU Environment Commissioner Margaret Wallstroem goes one step further and says: Kyoto is not a simple environmental issue, where you can say scientists are not unanimous. This is about international relations, this is about the economy, and this is about trying to create a level playing field for big business throughout the world. . . And French President Jacques Chirac has termed the Kyoto Protocol ‘the first component of authentic world government.”(Yikes!)

    Soros wants world government and Obama will pursue it. But as Lord Moncton points out, this will be hard to achieve due to the Constitutional requirement that it be ratified by 2/3 of the Senate. Thus, Obama wants to change that to a bare majority. Just a small matter of housekeeping I am sure. If it passes by a bare majority then it is enforceable as a domestic law only and can be rescinded unilaterally. But if it passes by a 2/3 majority, then it will constitute a binding treaty, and cannot be rescinded unless all parties let us out. Since we will be the largest contributor to Chairman Mo’s white elephant it is unlikely that all other parties signatory will allow us to withdraw. They are only $33 B in arrears now.

    Finally, the legislative intent of the Kyoto Treaty is openly hostile toward the American middle class. It blames global warming on their consumption habits, and imposes a heavy tax burden on them to clean it up. This kind of bias permeates the thinking of Soros and Obama. Hillary Clinton is well acquainted with Soros, worked with him on various projects, and shares many of the ideals. But I am quite sure that she would never tank our country for Soros or anyone else. The thrust of her campaign was to protect the middle class. By contrast, it is apparent from his past actions that Mr. Obama feels no such commitment. Obama will do what Soros commands. That is the real concern.

  54. What kind of a monster do we have as POTUS, who could laugh and joke just before talking about the massacre. GWB would be bawling his head off or be so pist off that he couldn’t see straight, but nonchalant never!

  55. Federal law enforcement officials say the suspected Fort Hood, Texas, shooter had come to their attention at least six months ago because of Internet postings that discussed suicide bombings and other threats.

    The officials say the postings appeared to have been made by Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who was killed during the shooting incident that left least 11 others dead and 31 wounded. The officials say they are still trying to confirm that he was the author. They say an official investigation was not opened.

    The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case.

    One of the Web postings that authorities reviewed is a blog that equates suicide bombers with a soldier throwing himself on a grenade to save the lives of his comrades.

    CHAPTER 9: THE GHOST OF PAUL REVERE

    Many years ago, a movie critic told a Hollywood Director that art must imitate life. Therefore, a villain of the silver screen must stop telling the hero all the dreadful things he is doing with impunity, to make the hero feel powerless. In the real world villains do not operate that way. The Director took a long drag on his cigarette (historical note: they smoked in those days), looked the critic in the eye, and told him you are wrong. That is exactly how it works in the real world. Evil must advertise. After all, what is the point of being evil if no one notices, and no one cares? Thus, when Soros tells us I made a billion as the pound crashed, or I had a nice crisis thank you, or the former Soviet Empire is now the Soros Empire he is simply telling us who and what he is. Fine. Now we know.

    George Soros is a man of malignant ambition. He has vast wealth and powerful connections. He uses those assets to destroy markets, overthrow governments and thereby harm innocent people. His intention is “to puncture the bubble of American supremacy” in order to create a New World Order which he and his cronies will design and control. Now finally he has his man in the White House. Therefore, he can advance a globalist agenda—which for us equates to taxation without representation. What can the average citizen do to preserve our rights?

    On April 18, 1775 Paul Revere faced the same question, except that threat emanated from King George of England rather than Emperor Gyorgy of the Cosmos. His answer was to ride from Boston to Lexington by moonlight to warn other patriots of the impending threat. We must do that much and more.

    First, we must recognize that Obama is primarily a tool—and a strategic distraction for the paparazzi-minded mainstream media, and a much larger agenda. Second, we must reject misleading comparisons to prior administrations which seek to mask this transmogrification of America. (Note: that is the word Lord Moncton uses to describe what Obama is trying to do by treaty. It means: to change the form grotesquely. Was that what the voters wanted when they elected Obama or did NBC Anchor Brian Williams perchance fail to ask his liege what he meant by the word “change”?) Third, we are living in dangerous times. We must not allow passion to become lord of reason.

    If you do the research I did you will come across things that may well be true but generate more heat than light. I excluded them for that reason. It is important for us to keep our cool even if others do not. With any luck, this paper will help people understand what is occurring and why we must scrutinize the actions of this megalomaniacal man who imperils our future. Bear in mind I could be wrong about all this. But somehow I doubt it. Frankly, I think the record speaks for itself.

    BILL BOE (11/3/09)
    THE GHOST OF PAUL REVERE
    First they called us racists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a racist;
    Then they called us a mob, and I did not speak out—because I was not a mobster;
    Then they threatened a news network, and I did not speak out—because I was not a journalist;
    Then they destroyed our country, and I did not speak out—because I wanted to believe their lies;
    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak out for me. . . . .

  57. Better get a load of this now, your Fake POTUS embarrassing the Country. Unreal. They are going to clean this up. Can you EVER imagine another President saying ” I want to give a shout out” PRIOR to talking about the MURDER of our finest and bravest. But then again, he is smiling, it was a Muslim after all that pulled the trigger.

    Speaking of which, did you notice with how much more authority the officer giving the press conference at Fort Hood spoke than the U.S. President? The officer spoke ex temporaneously, answered questions politely but firmly, exuded confidence that the case will be solved while convincingly expressing sincere condolences to the families of the dead and wounded, appeared accessible and authoritative at the same time. What a stark contrast to the limp lip syncing of our so-called Commander-in-Chief.

  66. Wbboei, Over a the Confluence they have found information saying that the conbining of the EU and the North American Union is on target for summer of 2010. That is with Obama’s help. I guess we have already lost our country and no one has told us. I think he let that slip yesterday when he was talking about the new initiative for schools.

    The Media Will Downplay His Religion, But God Help Us if His Car Had a Talk Radio Station On

    As the sun set tonight, tragedy came to Ft. Hood. A muslim soldier began shooting other soldiers.

    What we know so far is that the soldier was a muslim and began yelling at his fellow soldiers statements in Arabic.

    The soldier was upset about having to deploy to Iraq. The military is saying this could have been a criminal incident as opposed to a terrorist incident.

    Much is unknown. What is known is that the media will more likely than not seek to downplay the soldier’s religious convictions since he was not a Christian, but, should they find a Glenn Beck book or find out he watched Fox News or listened to Rush Limbaugh they will blow that through the roof. What is also known is the media will focus on post traumatic stress disorder and seek to blame the incident on “George Bush’s war” and the stress of potentially multiple deployments.

    Yes, the anti-war media narrative has gotten that predictable.

    We’ve already seen one bit of bad form in the media noting Malik Hasan donated to Republicans, just not that Malik Hasan. No one seems to get the point the reporter was trying to make.

  68. “Soros implemented the Dean Plan in the 2008 Democratic Primary. He showed the Obama campaign how to co-opt the media and exploit its pathological hatred for Hillary Clinton.”

    —————-
    wbboei,

    I am reading this slowly because there is just so much to absorb. All along we have thought that soros was a monster of huge proportions, but having it here in black and white just sickens me.

  69. presser is on…………….SHOOTER IS NOT DEAD, in stable condition and in custody…what?

    OH MY GOD, HE IS ALIVE?

  70. “Steve Croft showed him a film clip of Jews being herded into the box cars by Nazis and asked how he feels today as a fellow Jew about his role in that tragedy. Whereupon Soros told an incredulous Croft that he felt no remorse and went on to explain that this is the same way markets work—he was a winner and they were simply the losers.”

    ———–
    Does this not make him a Nazi war criminal or one step worse in that he is the worst Jew possible?

    ———–
    “But the false charge of racism has bludgeoned them into silence.”

    ————–
    Exactly!

    ————–
    He masterminds market crashes worldwide and yet he walks a free man. Unbelievable!

  71. Gonzotx, OMG, how in the hell did they not know he wasn’t dead. Sounds like there was more than one shooter. They are lying their asses off. THey don’t want this to be elevated to point that innocent muslim soldiers are killed. I can see this, but I still think this is terrorism, homegrown.

  72. I tried again to post the links. They would not go through. I wish I could because everyone should do their own due diligence on him. A year ago I knew he was key to the party, the election and governing. I can remember one of the key Democrats Don Iverson saying that Soros now cntrols the party and I mentioned that several times. But the how and the why of it eluded me until I did the current research. At that point it all became crystal clear.

  73. JanH, He should be cellie’s with Madoff. He really should be a war criminal, what the article doesn’t say is that he took their gold teeth also.

  74. I’d like to give soros a huge dose of “shock doctrine.” Specifically “electric shock doctrine.”

    I honestly wish he would denounce his faith (which also happens to be mine). He does not deserve to be one of God’s chosen people.

  75. Wbboei, Over a the Confluence they have found information saying that the conbining of the EU and the North American Union is on target for summer of 2010. That is with Obama’s help. I guess we have already lost our country and no one has told us. I think he let that slip yesterday when he was talking about the new initiative for schools.

    I had a friend who was assistant dean of Sloane School (The Business School at MIT). The Dean at that time was Lestor Thorow. Thorow believed that free trade would devolve into free trade withing trading blocks, but in order for it to be viable there would have to be enough people in the trading block. Labor and goods would flow freely within that block. What he envisioned at the time was a large trading block in the east dominated by China. An enlarged NAFTA, CAFTA and South American block. The world as a whole would subsidize Brazilian Farmers not to cut down the Amazon rain forest. 2-3 billion in the Chinese trading block, 870 million in the Europoean block inclusive of eastern Europe and 700 million in ours. So then this idea of combining Europe and America makes some sense on paper. Also, there is a commonality of interest between members based on standard if living, heritage etc. You would end up with a combined market closer to the size of China.

    From my perspective, this is where these foggy bottom types get us all in trouble. I understand sovereignty and I do not understand this new world ordere business. And neither do they.

  76. I am reading this slowly because there is just so much to absorb. All along we have thought that soros was a monster of huge proportions, but having it here in black and white just sickens me.

    Good Jan. If you need more information on any parts of it, let me know.

  77. “Soros’ aim was the destruction of Russia as a world power. Eliminating Russian influence and replacing it with new regimes hostile to Russia was his goal.”

    um…diabolical…perfect criminal for a James Bond moving. Only problem is that this idiot still breathes.

  78. Wbboei, I am against all consolidation with any other country. I don’t believe this globalization has been good for any working class stiff in the US. It is there to make the rich richer. This whole healthcare craze is just chaos to cover up the fact that they are doing this under our nose. Some day the mulitudes will wake up a realize their messiah has combined three or four govt. with the United Nations over us while they were screaming about healthcare death squads. THis is so ridiculous that people are dumb enough not to realize the ruling elites are doing this. Democrat and Republican are in this together, that why there is not taking Bush/Cheney to stand trial for their criminal acts.

  79. “Obama was not on the ballot in Michigan and yet the Committee awarded him delegates that Hillary won. This was a blatant violation of the core party principle of “fair reflection”. The rules had to be trashed to ensure Obama got the nomination.”

    Just reading about this makes me angry all over again.

  80. “At the Convention, the fine young cannibals who were there to support Obama tried to bribe Hillary delegates to change their votes and if they would not change they harassed them. A complaint was drafted to the Secretary of State of California protesting this. But in the end, Hillary conceded. The Party that Soros controlled disrespected Hillary and her 18 million supporters. She won more primary votes than any Democratic candidate in history, including Obama. But real democracy does not count when you are dealing with Soros.”

    ——————

    Amen!

    Five things learned from Clinton’s trip

    By: Laura Rozen
    November 5, 2009 08:13 PM EST

    Laura Rozen accompanied Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on an eventful eight-day trip to Pakistan, the Mideast and North Africa. Here are five observations from the trip:

    1. Running for president was good training to be secretary of state.

    Yes, Hillary Clinton has a large cabin in the front of her plane — with a bed in which she could sleep on the long flight from Shannon, Ireland, to Islamabad — and a staff of many to prep, brief, tend to and coif her. But the sheer pace of high-impact public events and behind-closed-door meetings was remarkable, not least for a woman who just turned 62. The totals: eight days, five countries and more than 50 events, meetings, town halls and news conferences.

    “Nobody ever gets used to this kind of schedule,” veteran diplomat Aaron David Miller said in an e-mail, “but when you work on issues you care about and there really are things at stake, you’re running on empty to be sure but with great energy and power.”

    Secretary Clinton, like candidate Clinton, tries to win over audiences with her homework and her obvious command of policy substance, as well as with her ability to connect on a personal level. She also tactically deploys the odd flash of authenticity, lowering her voice to speak “frankly” and get real.

    In a complex environment like Pakistan or the Middle East, such efforts sometimes backfire, or at least counteract the rest of her major public diplomacy message du jour. But with Clinton, ever aware that her audience is both domestic and international, it’s hard to know how much such misfires may be unintentional — or not.

    For instance, after nodding patiently through several days of public events in Pakistan in which she tried to explain, in response to seemingly endless Pakistani complaints about the shortcomings of American policy, that she was an advocate of “turning the page” in the U.S.-Pakistani relationship, Clinton was asked by a Pakistani editor what the U.S. was doing to try to curb outside funding for terrorist groups that Pakistan is fighting “in our backyard.”

    Clinton replied: “We’ve done a lot.” But then she detoured from the message of U.S.-Pakistani partnership that had been the major theme of the trip, questioning why the Pakistanis hadn’t had more success with Al Qaeda “if they wanted to.”

    Not the message of respectful mutual partnership Clinton had spent several long days conveying to Pakistani official and civic audiences. But then again, perhaps not a message she regretted much saying, either, given the seeming veracity of the observation and the hours of having heard one-way Pakistani complaints about American policies and supposed shortcomings.

    2. A breakneck schedule packed with events is not without risks.

    That was demonstrated by Clinton’s late-night news conference with Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday. The optics alone of Clinton nodding in affirmation to a strutting and confident Netanyahu talking up his partial settlement moratorium offer, and Clinton’s nodding praise of it as “unprecedented,” ricocheted through the Arab world, where the event was taken as a signal of a significant policy retreat by the Obama administration on its earlier demand for a full settlement freeze by Israel.

    Clinton and the U.S. Mideast team spent the next several days scrambling to do damage control, first at a conference with Arab foreign ministers in Morocco and then at a stop in Cairo added at the last minute. They tried to explain that President Barack Obama’s goal was to get Israeli-Palestinian talks relaunched as soon as possible — and out of the rut of talking about talks while Israeli settlement expansion increased.

    One veteran Democratic foreign policy hand described it as a case of Clinton’s taking “what was supposed to be said privately and [saying] it publicly.”

    Whatever caused her Jerusalem misstep, there’s no doubt that Clinton had spent her days scrambling to try to smooth things over. And that suggests something else.

    3. She is much better served by her current staffers than she was by her 2008 campaign staff. Their quick reaction to the settlement controversy and teamwork in trying to deal with its consequences were the kind of damage control not always demonstrated by the Clinton political team, which was famous for its leaking, infighting and venomous feuds.

    Along with the State Department officials and National Security Council staff Clinton brought with her was one important holdover from her campaign: deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin, Clinton’s closest personal aide, whose many duties included plopping notes on the podium before she spoke and telling her when to put on more lipstick.

    4. She’s a lightning rod, for better or for worse.

    Nothing Clinton says simply peters out into the ether. She is one of those people whose words — even tonal inflections— and body language have unusual impact and are scrutinized under the microscope, for better or for worse. And because of her desire to go beyond just official meetings, she makes herself a ready target for critics of the U.S.

    During the same roundtable with Pakistani television journalists, in which she seemed to suggest the Pakistani government has turned a blind eye to Al Qaeda suspects, Clinton faced complaints about U.S. drone attacks on militants that have killed hundreds of civilians.

    “We are fighting a war that was imposed on us. It is not our war; it is your war,” journalist Asma Shirazi told Clinton. “You had a Sept. 11. We are having daily Sept. 11s in Pakistan.”

    5. She is not suffering from special-envoy eclipse.

    Clinton was accompanied on the Pakistan portion of the trip by U.S. Afghanistan and Pakistan envoy Richard Holbrooke and met up with U.S. Middle East envoy George Mitchell in Abu Dhabi. And neither was looking as fresh or as enthusiastic as Clinton.

    While Holbrooke and Mitchell have previously been portrayed as competitors for ownership of the two key foreign policy issues, it was Clinton who had the oomph and media magnetism that the envoys working the issues day in and day out did not have. And while both envoys seemed somewhat discouraged and exhausted by their efforts, Clinton appeared to bring endless energy to the issues — along with a team of State Department professionals who had been somewhat sidelined by the envoys’ presence.

    After arriving home late Wednesday, Clinton had a Thursday schedule that included meetings with an Ethiopian official, an award ceremony at State, an NSC principals committee meeting on Afghanistan at the White House and her usual Thursday private meeting with Obama.

    And on Saturday, it starts all over again: Clinton begins another marathon trip that will take her to Berlin for commemorations of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, to Paris and then to Asia and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Singapore, where she will cede the spotlight to Obama.

    You are right Connie. The business wings of both parties are in pare delicto. Two wings of the same bird as Lou Dobbs woould say. And then you have these ignorant as swans people for whom politics is a fashion statement and never goes any deeper than that. That is why the military loves to get them young before those two frontal lobes in the brain have matured. In the book the world is flat the unquotable Tom Friedman predicted a break up of the two parties for that very reason. The wall party and the international party would be the successors. The problem with the international party is it is a race to the bottom for countries like us that have a higher standard of living. This whole damned thing strarted when Poppy starting his babbling about a new world order. and his son held meetings with Vicente Fox before 9/11 work toward this North American Union thing. So yes it is bi partisan. But I can tell you one thing–Michelle Backman (R-Mn) and Debbie Stabelow (D-Mi) aint buying it. In other words, the globalists have the upper hand in both parties now, but there are alot of populists left.

  85. The first day of Law School the Dean met with us. He was a graduate of Holy Cross and a practicing Catholic. He quoted St. Paul and said “if you have not charity, you have nothing”. Let me be as charitable as I can. A sports writer can be as tough and unforgiving as he wants to be with a baseball player in a hitting slump, but just put that journalistic hack at home plate with a Louisville slugger bat and a high inside fast ball coming at him at 87 miles per hour and watch him wilt. Then take that hammer and tongs theater critic who can make or break a play by his review on opening night, and put that son of a bitch center stage above the footlights, all eyes on him waiting to see that words, aria, or jokes come out of his mouth, and watch him lose his voice. And then take these AP motherfuckers who have been dissing Hillary on her trips abroad as she tries to put pressure on the parties the way any mediator would to reach an agreement where no one has been able to before–just put those all knowing motherfuckers on the same high wire she is traversing brilliantly without a net, and watch them fall headfirst to the ground. Those who can do. Those who cant sit back and criticize those who do.

  86. Here’s a well written article sceptical of the vaccines’ new clothes — all flu vaccines. Here’s it’s summation:

    h/w
    theatlantic.com/doc/200911/brownlee-h1n1

    [O]ur encouragement of early treatment with antiviral drugs will likely lead many people to show up at the hospital at first sniffle. “There’s no worse place to go than the hospital during flu season,” says Majumdar. Those who don’t have the flu are more likely to catch it there, and those who do will spread it around, he says. “But we don’t tell people this.”

    All of which leaves open the question of what people should do when faced with a decision about whether to get themselves and their families vaccinated. There is little immediate danger from getting a seasonal flu shot, aside from a sore arm and mild flu-like symptoms. The safety of the swine flu vaccine remains to be seen. In the absence of better evidence, vaccines and antivirals must be viewed as only partial and uncertain defenses against the flu.

  87. My point is if you put these AP critics on the front line where they had to resolve a complex issue, you would quickly discover the truth which is that they are nothing but mouth and gut wind.

  88. By the way, his carbon print is as big as Texas…

    ========

    Do you have any facts and figures? How does this carbon footprint compare with Bill Clinton’s — or Hillary’s?

    I’m snipping the rest of your comment because it does not even claim specifics — it is just crazy abusive ranting like we get from RightWingNuts.

    Gore was Bill Clinton’s chosen VP and his policies have always been in line with the Clintons’. He’s a good guy and we need more of them — not to get destructive toward them ourselves.

  89. That is a more balanced article than we are accustomed by those jackasses at Politico. I have a high opinion of Holbrooke and Mitchell, and Hillary knows how to bring out the best in all of them. There is no point in comparing her to Obama, since he has never in his life immersed himself in the details of a problem. But if you need somebody to deliver a speech about tearing down walls then he is your man. As for Kerry, it is hard not laugh when someone talks about him for secretary of state. He is slow and awkward and gaff prone and boring. Given me Biden any day of the weak. At least he has a sense of humor and can steal a scene Sure, he slides across the room on bananas but so what. He is funny. Kerry on the other hand is not. He looks like some magistrate from the Salem with trials transported here through some time machine conceived of by Rod Serling.

  90. Jan–there is alot of self serving revisionist history being written now about the campaign by liars like Wolf and now Plough. It is important to preserve the truth, “lest we forget” as the Irish say. I was in five states, and saw bad things in two places. In Laredo, the Texas Party officials could not understand the rules so they kept the voters locked outside the gymnasium where the voting was to have started at 7:00. Bots were trained at camp obama to take over the meetings and they did not like being locked out. They started smashing the door in and five squad cars were called in. I was at a neighboring precinct and Hillary won 94%. I had to rush into the other precint, and by the time I did things were tense but under control/ We had a husband and wife at that site watching over the proceedings. Both of them were seasoned lawyers from San Francisco. Hillary won that precinct as well, but it was much closer. Out west in El Paso it was bad, real bad. Watch:

    Texas Caucus Fraud (Updated)
    by Pacific John, Fri May 02, 2008 at 10:08:18 PM EST

    Following my friend Lois Capps’ endorsement of Barack Obama, it became clear that I had done her and other delegates a disservice by not disclosing information I witnessed at the Texas caucuses, and that endorsements should be made with the benefit of this information. After her endorsement, I wrote to Rep. Capps so that she can be fully informed in the event that delegates are forced to shift from one candidate to the other as the party forms a consensus behind the stronger of the two candidates.

    I need to point out that I am not on the Hillary for President campaign staff, and that the campaign has gone to significant lengths to keep this dirty laundry out of the press. However, it is my strong feeling that we should not withhold evidence of crime, particularly since it is inconsistent with the public Obama image of being above “anything it takes to win,” and it sheds significant light onto the otherwise puzzling difference between the popular vote and caucus results. Here are excerpts from my letter to Rep. Capps.

    I was a volunteer field organizer in El Paso, Texas and investigated irregularities for three weeks after the election.

    As a Democratic Coordinated Campaign Regional Director in 1996 and as a volunteer on campaigns in the 1990s, I have the ethical obligation to report what I saw in Texas.

    When California 22nd CD Republican candidate Tom Bordonaro famously tried to suppress the vote by phone banking under a false name, many of us in the Capps campaign immediately said that we would walk away from a campaign if our side were similarly unethical. That moment kept replaying through my head election night in El Paso. Simply put, the Obama campaign made Tom Bordonaro look ethical.

    Lois Capps is correct when she wrote that Sen. Obama is inspiring. However, many of the actions of his campaign that I witnessed and investigated are criminal.

    I know this information is jarring, and puts DNC delegates in an uncomfortable situation, but if the time comes for delegates to endorse or get behind a consensus candidate, this information should be available. As I wrote to Rep. Capps, I apologize for not illuminating this earlier.

    My observations in Texas were that caucuses were broadly illegitimate. In a few well-run counties, Hillary’s caucus vote was the same or better than the popular vote, but in chaotic counties, she fell behind by double digits. While Texas is the only state to have both a binding popular vote and a caucus vote, we saw similar results in Washington State, where Obama’s numbers plunged in the unofficial primary compared to the caucuses .

    This stands out: only four major Texas counties were orderly enough to report most of their caucus results election night, and in three of these, caucus preference mirrored the popular vote (HRC popular/caucus): El Paso (69/75), Austin/Travis (37/34), San Antonio/Bexar (56/57). In the case of Austin, I have read reports that that both sides ran their caucuses well.

    These counties had exceptional organizations, but it should not take heroics to run a fair election.

    On election night in El Paso, it became obvious that the Obama field campaign was designed to steal caucuses. Prior to that, it was impossible for me to imagine the level of attempted fraud and disruption we would see. It was far worse than any GOP campaign I have organized against on the Central Coast, worse than Tom Bordonaro’s, worse than Andrea Seastrand’s, worse than the Dole campaign whose supporters vandalized our headquarters.

    We saw stolen precincts where Obama organizers fabricated counts, made false entries on sign-in sheets, suppressed delegate counts, and suppressed caucus voters. We saw patterns such as missing electronic access code sheets and precinct packets taken before the legal time, like elsewhere in the state. Obama volunteers illegally took convention materials state-wide, with attempts as early as 6:30 am. Some of this was presented in a press release from Clinton Campaign Counsel Lyn Utrecht, but I witnessed worse than what she disclosed.

    In one example of fraud that I witnessed, one of my precinct captains, an elderly Hispanic woman, called me to report that BHO supporters had illegally seized control of the convention. During our series of phone calls, Mrs. “A.” reported that the Obama people took the convention materials and did not have a legal election of officers. Like nearly all of El Paso, BHO people would have lost such an election in this majority-Hillary, Hispanic, mostly elderly precinct convention.

    The Obama people ordered Mrs. A. to sit across the room during the delegate calculation, and excluded Hillary supporters from the process. Mrs. A. overheard an Obama supporter call in a false delegate count to Austin. In a 13 delegate precinct where Obama should have won approximately 4 delegates, the Obama supporters attempted to award 19 delegates to Obama. This was not innocent. During my attempts at cell phone diplomacy, the Obama “chair” hung up on me, and refused to talk to the ethical Obama organizer I was paired with at another precinct convention. As with all major attempts at fraud that we identified, this delegate count was rectified in private at the county TDP headquarters, according to TDP rules, but there were no public charges or sanctions. It is my opinion that people should be in jail, but there is not a mechanism for this sort of prosecution, certainly not within TDP rules.

    Although I have only volunteered in one state, virtually every Clinton staffer I have talked to has similar stories from other caucus states. While the Hillary field campaign operates and feels very much like typical Democratic campaigns, the Obama campaign is something new to Democratic politics. From my perspective, it looks like it has copied the worst attributes of Republican campaigns, but with unprecedented zeal.

    Ironically, only in very well-organized areas like El Paso were we able to even identify the scale of the attempted irregularities. In these areas, we were also able to rebuff most attempts at fraud, correct fraudulent delegate counts, and protect our voters. In less well-organized areas, we did not have enough eyes and ears to identify or stop fraud, and our numbers plunged.

    Although affidavits have not been made public, I have copies and records of the voter complaints for which I did interviews. Although the Hillary campaign has not gone public with evidence of fraud, the national legal team has approximately 200 such affidavits and 2000 voter complaints. The campaign intends to win the popular vote without airing these charges in public, but I suspect the campaign will provide authorities with this evidence upon request.

    My own sense is that this information should not be withheld from delegates, since it both casts the Obama campaign as stunningly unethical, and it severely undermines the general credibility of caucuses. It also points out that perception and reality are upside down. The campaign that will “do anything to win,” including the illegal acts documented in affidavits, is not Hillary’s.

    In fact, I was as proud of the integrity and transparency of the Hillary campaign in Texas as I was of the Capps and Clinton/Gore campaigns of the 1990s.

    I would be happy to share records in my position with appropriate authorities.

    It is true that elements of the Obama campaign appeal to our better angels, but, in the moment of truth when the Obama campaign echoed Republican Tom Bordonaro’s, I made the personal decision that Sen. Obama cannot be our nominee.

    I am positive that any Democrat who witnessed what I did would stand against Sen. Obama now, and I have faith that some endorsements like Rep. Capps’s are temporary. This is wrenching for a Democratic activist like me who has served on county and Assembly District committees, but I cannot support a candidate with a criminal campaign.

    Here at MyDD, I’ll try to make time to answer factual questions

    7:42 (pacific) Housekeeping note: I have to leave right now, but will check back in this evening.
    Update 1

    There have been some good question in the comments.

    In this one, there is the question about a challenge by Obama supporters, lawyer/judge Don Williams. My position is that the rules should be followed, and the process be as transparent as possible. I understand that 77% of UTEP sign in sheet preference was for Hillary, after there were a few correction related to fraud from Mr Williams’ side. I understand this challenge should be resolved by the state credentials committee, along with a large number of other challenges, prior to the Austin convention. As I understand it, the challenge states that the rules in the nominations committee at UTEP were misinterpreted. But what I saw was fraud, not a difference of opinion about convention rules. I would support any legitimate adjustment to delegate counts, be it from a correction of fraudulent sign-in sheets, or a correction of a faulty ruling.

    This post raises a lot of good questions, too many to handle adequately without a new diary:

    I’ve yet to hear any verified account of fraud. Two months, but nothign. Why after going for a month and half now on Wright do think the media would just shut out any attempt to challenge the legitimacy of the caucuses? Where is the reporting?! Why is it that you saw this, but no reporters, police officers, judges, lawyers or others who would be compelled to speak up about it and document it?
    If there is evidence of this I want to hear it. This would be criminal and I’m not.

    Finally, Hillary won El Paso by 75%. How with that overwhelming majority did you allow a minority to override the will of the majority? Even in the example of Mrs. A (you told us you witnessed this personally, but the only evidence you give is a person not named and the precinct not given), there was a majority of Hillary supporters. How did they let a minority overrule a majority? That doesn’t make sense. Please explain it to me.

    First, why did I keep quiet? I followed the campaign’s guidance to resolve these issues behind closed doors. There were a few elements of this: the campaign’s first concern was make as many corrections to the delegate count as possible within TDP rules, in TDP offices. Once the deed was done, an orderly audit benefited our side, and pushing these charges in the press would have created a circus (a la Florida) that would have shut down the process of verifying sign in sheets and delegate calculations.
    Second, why no reporting? Because the press did not seek to investigate this, even though the Clinton campaign published the linked press release that we had evidence of widespread illegalities. I called a reporter from the El Paso Times who did not return my call. Also, this did not get pushed in the press after the initial press release because the TX Hillary campaign chose to trust the process and grind out the delegate count. Since the TDP is run by people who support both campaigns, there would have been a serious lose of face to air these charges, and would have strained the professional relationships between all in the campaigns and in the party. In the specific case of El Paso, I am told Chair Danny Anchondo did not want to humiliate leading Obama-supporting Democrats who he will have to live with for years to come.

    Third, how did a minority faction override the majority? In the end, they did not. We had the best field operation I have ever seen, and in most cases, had a few trained people in each precinct. I should add, our organization was so overwhelming, the Obama campaign abandoned their precinct captain program about a week before the election, placing their bets on an election-day blitz by out of state organizers. We were also transparent, and included people with ties to the Obama campaign in our caucus training program. We knew that an orderly process favored Hillary. We would not have known about Mrs. A’s precinct if we did not have trained people in the room. So, we were able to over-turn problems like Mrs A’s precinct after the fact. How did the Obama organizers seize the convention in the first place? By intimidation, by physically controlling the legal documents, and by ignoring the legal process that called for an election of officers. They took the convention package and never let go of it.

  91. Turndownobama, You are right about Gore, we must remember the real democrats and what it was like in the 90’s when we had a real democrat in, we must never shoot ourselves in the foot. I voted for Gore and hated the globalist that cheated his way in, just like the globalist we have now that cheated his way in also. Obama is a continuation of the elitists that are leading us to the one world govt.

    Gore is a real enviromentalist.

    I heard they changed the Kyoto protocol some, but I am still leary of it. BC signed the Kyoto II, but never sent it to the Senate for ratification. I wonder why??

  92. Just a few articles, public knowledge. Turndown. I think crazy rantings may be in the mind of the beholder. I might think your statements are rantings. Their all in it together. Your looking for good guys, well the only one I know is Hillary and probably Bill.

    Some more tidbits:

    http://blog.newyorkcitycommunity.us/2008/09/20/jon-corzine-and-hot-air—perfect-together.aspx

    Excerpt:

    Maurice Strong is involved with Chicago’s Climate Exchange. Al Gore is chairman of a private equity firm called Generation Investment Management. That firm invests money from institutions and wealthy investors in companies that are going green. Generation Investment Management purchases carbon dioxide offsets. The co-founder of Generation Investment Management is former Goldman Sachs CEO Hank Paulson, who is currently the Secretary of the U.S. Treasury. Goldman Sachs bought 10% of Chicago’s Climate Exchange shares for $23 million. Chicago’s Climate Exchange owns half of the European Climate Exchange, Europe’s largest carbon trading company.

    Maurice Strong: Chicago Climate Exchange’s board member. Canadian Maurice Strong has made a career and a fortune out of financial rip-offs. Strong served on the board of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (World Conservation Union) and was an advisor to the UN’s Kofi Annan. Among many other things, he was the first Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Program in the 1970’s and Secretary General of the 1992 UN Conference on Environment and Development, also known as the Earth Summit.

    Goldman Sachs: The largest shareholder of the Chicago Climate Exchange and the second largest shareholder of the InterContinental Exchange. In fact, Goldman Sachs put Al Gore into the carbon offset hedge fund business in 2003 when David Blood, a former CEO of Goldman Sachs Assets Management, along with two other former Goldman Sachs officers, helped Gore establish his firm, General Investment Management, which focuses on “Sustainable Investing” by peddling carbon offsets.

    Jon Corzine: He is now the Governor of NJ. He retired from Goldman Sachs in 1999 after taking the firm public and receiving at least $320 million worth of its stock. He ran for the Senate in New Jersey in 2000, spending more than $60 million of his fortune to win the seat. The bubble of high-priced technology stocks began to burst in March 2000. In August 2000, the SEC issued a warning against aftermarket sales, also known as “laddering.” “I’ve never even heard the term ‘laddering’ before,” Corzine said.

    However, Nicholas Maier of Cramer & Co. said it happened on Corzine’s watch. “For Corzine not to know of a common practice being utilized to generate and manipulate stock prices would be surprising,” Mr. Maier said. “He was obviously there during this time. I definitively saw his company engaged in illegal activity. They (the SEC) expressed to me that laddering is a trickier thing [to prove],” Maier said. “I will say it. They did it. They laddered. Whether the SEC can construct a case is a different story.”

    Al Gore: Owns a carbon trading business, Generation Investment Management. They were banked with the Lehman Bros. The Generation Investment Management business has considerable influence over the major carbon credit trading firms that currently exist.

    Merrill Lynch: Deeply involved in the Carbon trading business. They are a founding member and primary sponsor of the U.K.-based Carbon Disclosure Project. Merrill Lynch is headed by John A Thain who is a Goldman Sachs alumni.

    Lehman Brothers: Created a propaganda piece last year about climate change to make their investors keep getting high profits from the Kyoto carbon trade scheme and the support of huge public subventions. All that, of course, with the applause of the usual choir of politicians, the entire media and the Greens.

    A year ago they couldn’t predict their bankruptcy but were predicting the climate 100 years ahead. Thousands of green militants have been using the Lehman report as a proof of global warming and impending chaos. The report is the basis for policies on climate change in Spain, Argentina and several other countries playing the progress game.

    Chicago Climate Exchange: The Exchange owes it existence in part to the Joyce Foundation, the Chicago-based liberal foundation philanthropy that provided $347,000 in grant support in 2000 for a preliminary study to test the viability of a market in carbon credits. On the CCX board of directors is the ubiquitous Maurice Strong, a Canadian industrialist and diplomat who since the 1970s has helped create an international policy agenda for the environmentalist movement.

    ****Joyce Foundation: Provided grant support to test the market in carbon credits. Barack Hussein Obama sat on their Board for 8 years.**** (Oops, Obama, is that you?)

    Al Gore’s ‘Inconvenient Truth’? — $30,000 utility bill (2/27/07 – NASHVILLE, TN) — Back home in Tennessee, safely ensconced in his suburban Nashville home, Vice President Al Gore is no doubt basking in the Oscar awarded to “An Inconvenient Truth,” the documentary he inspired and in which he starred. But a local free-market think tank is trying to make that very home emblematic of what it deems Gore’s environmental hypocrisy.
    Armed with Gore’s utility bills for the last two years, the Tennessee Center for Policy Research charged Monday that the gas and electric bills for the former vice president’s 20-room home and pool house devoured nearly 221,000 kilowatt-hours in 2006, more than 20 times the national average of 10,656 kilowatt-hours.
    “If this were any other person with $30,000-a-year in utility bills, I wouldn’t care,” says the Center’s 27-year-old president, Drew Johnson. “But he tells other people how to live and he’s not following his own rules.”
    Scoffed a former Gore adviser in response: “I think what you’re seeing here is the last gasp of the global warming skeptics. They’ve completely lost the debate on the issue so now they’re just attacking their most effective opponent.”

    Kalee Kreider, a spokesperson for the Gores, did not dispute the Center’s figures, taken as they were from public records. But she pointed out that both Al and Tipper Gore work out of their home and she argued that “the bottom line is that every family has a different carbon footprint. And what Vice President Gore has asked is for families to calculate that footprint and take steps to reduce and offset it.”
    A carbon footprint is a calculation of the CO2 fossil fuel emissions each person is responsible for, either directly because of his or her transportation and energy consumption or indirectly because of the manufacture and eventual breakdown of products he or she uses. (You can calculate your own carbon footprint on the website http://www.carbonfootprint.com/)
    The vice president has done that, Kreider argues, and the family tries to offset that carbon footprint by purchasing their power through the local Green Power Switch program — electricity generated through renewable resources such as solar, wind, and methane gas, which create less waste and pollution. “In addition, they are in the midst of installing solar panels on their home, which will enable them to use less power,” Kreider added. “They also use compact fluorescent bulbs and other energy efficiency measures and then they purchase offsets for their carbon emissions to bring their carbon footprint down to zero.”
    These efforts did little to impress Johnson. “I appreciate the solar panels,” he said, “but he also has natural gas lanterns in his yard, a heated pool, and an electric gate. While I appreciate that he’s switching out some light bulbs, he is not living the lifestyle that he advocates.”
    The Center claims that Nashville Electric Services records show the Gores in 2006 averaged a monthly electricity bill of $1,359 for using 18,414 kilowatt-hours, and $1,461 per month for using 16,200 kilowatt-hours in 2005. During that time, Nashville Gas Company billed the family an average of $536 a month for the main house and $544 for the pool house in 2006, and $640 for the main house and $525 for the pool house in 2005. That averages out to be $29,268 in gas and electric bills for the Gores in 2006, $31,512 in 2005.
    The press release from Johnson’s group, an obscure conservative think tank founded by Johnson in 2004 when he was 24, was given splashy attention on the highly-trafficked Drudge Report Monday evening, and former Gore aides saw it as part of a piece, along with an Fox News Channel investigation from earlier this month of Gore’s use of private planes in 2000. Last year, a seemingly amateurish Youtube video mocking the “An Inconvenient Truth” turned out to have been produced by slick Republican public relations firm called DCI, which just happens to have oil giant Exxon as a client.
    “Considering that he spends an overwhelming majority of his time advocating on behalf of and trying to affect change on this issue, it’s not surprising that people who have a vested interest in protecting the status quo would go after him,” said the former Gore aide.
    Kreider says she’s confident that the Gores’ utility bills will decrease. “They bought an older home and they’re in the process of upgrading the home,” she said. “Unfortunately that means an increase in energy use in order to have an overall decrease in energy use down the road.”
    Gore is not the only environmentalist associated with “An Inconvenient Truth” who has come under fire for personal habits — and not all the criticism has come from the Right.
    Writing in The Atlantic Monthly in 2004, liberal writer Eric Alterman criticized producer Laurie David for her use of private Gulfstream jets. David, he wrote “reviles the owners of SUVs as terrorist enablers, yet gives herself a pass when it comes to chartering one of the most wasteful uses of fossil-based fuels imaginable.” New Republic writer Gregg Easterbrook followed up, computing that “one cross-country flight in a Gulfstream is the same, in terms of Persian-Gulf dependence and greenhouse-gas emissions, as if she drove a Hummer for an entire year.”
    In an interview in 2006, David told ABC News that she was limiting her use of private planes and was flying commercial far more frequently.

    Does Al Gore Need to Go on an Energy Diet?
    New Video Exposes Behind-the-Scenes Story of Gore’s Own Energy Use

    by CEI Staff

    chall@cei.org

    Washington, DC, May 24, 2006—As former Vice President Al Gore’s documentary on global warming fears debuts today, a new video from the Competitive Enterprise Institute tracks Gore’s own “carbon footprint.” CEI’s 70-second video points out that Gore himself is a big user of the hydrocarbon fuels that produce carbon dioxide when combusted.

    Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” asks, “Are you willing to change the way you live?” The Gore documentary and new book of the same name go on to suggest ways that people can reduce their carbon footprint, yet Mr. Gore has clearly not taken his own message to heart. He even says in the documentary that he has given his global warming Power Point slide show more than 1,000 times all around the world.

    The CEI video, which may be viewed at: http://streams.cei.org/, includes footage of Gore and his constant air travel with two CO2 meters running at the bottom of the page that compare Gore’s carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions with those of an average person.

    “All the evidence suggests that Mr. Gore is an elitist who passionately believes that the people of the world must drastically reduce their energy use but that it doesn't apply to him,” said Myron Ebell, CEI's director of energy and global warming policy and the creator of the video.

    “While the CEI video pokes fun at Mr. Gore's profligate consumption of the world's petroleum resources, we don't begrudge his lifestyle that requires using as much energy as a small village in America or a medium-sized town in Africa,” Ebell explained. “The mobility that jet fuel and gasoline provide is a good thing and the benefits of abundant energy should be available to all people, not just the elite. CEI calls on Mr. Gore to stop preaching against the petroleum products he uses so lavishly and instead join us in promoting access to energy,” Ebell concluded.

    Some examples of Gore’s recent travels: In promoting his movie in mid-May, he and his entourage appeared at a gala preview screening in Atlanta on Monday the 15th , at an even more glamorous preview in Hollywood the next night, and at another lavish preview in Washington the night after that. That's two cross-country trips in three days. By the end of last week, Mr. Gore was at the Cannes film festival in France, where it was reported that he and his entourage used five large SUVs to travel 500 yards.

    The CEI website also contains two brief CEI public service advertisements that point out the enormous benefits we derive from hydrocarbon energy, which provides approximately 85% of global energy needs, and the biased media coverage of the scientific debate over global warming.

    The New York Times has lifted the lid on how Al Gore stands to benefit to the tune of billions of dollars if the carbon tax proposals he is pushing come to fruition in the United States, while documenting how he has already lined his pockets on the back of exaggerated fearmongering about global warming.

    As is to be expected, the article is largely a whitewash and takes an apologist stance in defense of Gore.

    However, the NY Times‘ John M. Broder does reveal how one of the companies Gore invested in, Silver Spring Networks, recently received a contract worth $560 million dollars from the Energy Department to install “smart meters” in people’s homes that record (and critics fear could eventually regulate) energy usage.

    “Kleiner Perkins and its partners, including Mr. Gore, could recoup their investment many times over in coming years,” states the report, highlighting the fact that Gore is “well positioned to profit from this green transformation, if and when it comes.”

    “Critics, mostly on the political right and among global warming skeptics, say Mr. Gore is poised to become the world’s first “carbon billionaire,” profiteering from government policies he supports that would direct billions of dollars to the business ventures he has invested in,” writes Broder.

    Since he left office, Gore’s personal net worth has skyrocketed on the back of his advocacy for global warming issues and the financial dividends this has reaped. Gore’s assets totaled less than $2 million in 2001 and although he refuses to give a figure for his current net worth, a recent single investment of $35 million in Capricorn Investment Group, a private equity fund, illustrates just how fast Gore has enriched himself from his climate change bandwagon.

    The Times report notes how Gore “has a stake in the world’s pre-eminent carbon credit trading market.” As we reported back in March, before he became President Barack Obama also helped fund the profiteers of the carbon taxation program that he is now seeking to implement as law.

    The Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) has direct ties to both Al Gore and Maurice Strong, two figures intimately involved with a long standing movement to use the theory of man made global warming as a mechanism for profit and social engineering. Gore’s investment company, Generation Investment Management, which sells carbon offset opportunities, is the largest shareholder of CCX.

    (ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW)

    Maurice Strong, who is regularly credited as founding father of the modern environmental movement, serves on the board of directors of CCX. Strong was a leading initiate of the Earth Summit in the early 90s, where the theory of global warming caused by CO2 generated by human activity was most notably advanced.

    Both Strong and Gore come from the Club of Rome clique, who in their 1991 Report, “The First Global Revolution” openly admitted how they were planning to exploit the contrived hoax of global warming in order to further their agenda.

    “In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.,” they wrote.

    Gore’s defense against claims that he is peddling fearmongering about global warming to get filthy rich, and one dutifully supported by the NY Times’ whitewash report, is that he is simply putting his money where his mouth is.

    However, Gore’s insistence that he is walking the walk, not just talking the talk, doesn’t seem to extend to his own private life in the context of energy conservation and CO2 emissions. While lecturing the world about reducing CO2 emissions and saving energy, Gore’s own mansion uses 20 times the energy of the average American home.

    In February 2007, the Tennessee Center for Policy Research revealed that the gas and electric bills for the former vice president’s 20-room home and pool house devoured nearly 221,000 kilowatt-hours in 2006, more than 20 times the national average of 10,656 kilowatt-hours. These figures were not disputed by Gore.

    “If this were any other person with $30,000-a-year in utility bills, I wouldn’t care,” said the Center’s 27-year-old president, Drew Johnson. “But he tells other people how to live and he’s not following his own rules.”

    The clips below, taken from Alex Jones’ new documentary Fall Of The Republic, expose how Al Gore serves as the front man for the global carbon tax cap and trade scheme, which is designed to bankrupt the United States and drastically lower the living standards of the American people, while introducing nightmare levels of regulation and bureaucracy into their everyday lives

  94. I made a big mistake tonight and went over to Talkleft to see what the cheetos crowd thought about the soldiers in Texas. Well, one commentor mentioned that their was going to be a muslim backlash and all the others shut him down saying that shouldn’t be discussed, so then they all decided desecrate Texas. They talked about Oswald, Dealey Plaza, Waco. That pist me off! Oswald wasn’t a TExan and neither was the shooter today, he was from VIRGINIA. Virginia doesn’t have a good track record either, they have Virginia Tech, THe snipers. Most people seem to come to TExas to do their dirty work. SOmehow people think we are a lawless, gun toting frontier where everyone packs a sidearm to go to the grocery store. I don’t even own a gun and can’t stand the thought of killing a deer during hunting season. They thought it was OK not to badmouths muslims but OK to badmouth Texans.

    “Critics, mostly on the political right and among global warming skeptics, say Mr. Gore is poised to become the world’s first “carbon billionaire,” profiteering from government policies he supports that would direct billions of dollars to the business ventures he has invested in,” writes Broder.

    Since he left office, Gore’s personal net worth has skyrocketed on the back of his advocacy for global warming issues and the financial dividends this has reaped. Gore’s assets totaled less than $2 million in 2001 and although he refuses to give a figure for his current net worth, a recent single investment of $35 million in Capricorn Investment Group, a private equity fund, illustrates just how fast Gore has enriched himself from his climate change bandwagon.

    The Times report notes how Gore “has a stake in the world’s pre-eminent carbon credit trading market.” As we reported back in March, before he became President Barack Obama also helped fund the profiteers of the carbon taxation program that he is now seeking to implement as law.

    The Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) has direct ties to both Al Gore and Maurice Strong, two figures intimately involved with a long standing movement to use the theory of man made global warming as a mechanism for profit and social engineering. Gore’s investment company, Generation Investment Management, which sells carbon offset opportunities, is the largest shareholder of CCX.

    (ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW)

    Maurice Strong, who is regularly credited as founding father of the modern environmental movement, serves on the board of directors of CCX. Strong was a leading initiate of the Earth Summit in the early 90s, where the theory of global warming caused by CO2 generated by human activity was most notably advanced.

    Both Strong and Gore come from the Club of Rome clique, who in their 1991 Report, “The First Global Revolution” openly admitted how they were planning to exploit the contrived hoax of global warming in order to further their agenda.

    “In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.,” they wrote.

    Gore’s defense against claims that he is peddling fearmongering about global warming to get filthy rich, and one dutifully supported by the NY Times’ whitewash report, is that he is simply putting his money where his mouth is.

    However, Gore’s insistence that he is walking the walk, not just talking the talk, doesn’t seem to extend to his own private life in the context of energy conservation and CO2 emissions. While lecturing the world about reducing CO2 emissions and saving energy, Gore’s own mansion uses 20 times the energy of the average American home.

    In February 2007, the Tennessee Center for Policy Research revealed that the gas and electric bills for the former vice president’s 20-room home and pool house devoured nearly 221,000 kilowatt-hours in 2006, more than 20 times the national average of 10,656 kilowatt-hours. These figures were not disputed by Gore.

    “If this were any other person with $30,000-a-year in utility bills, I wouldn’t care,” said the Center’s 27-year-old president, Drew Johnson. “But he tells other people how to live and he’s not following his own rules.”

    The clips below, taken from Alex Jones’ new documentary Fall Of The Republic, expose how Al Gore serves as the front man for the global carbon tax cap and trade scheme, which is designed to bankrupt the United States and drastically lower the living standards of the American people, while introducing nightmare levels of regulation and bureaucracy into their everyday lives.

  98. I believe that Joyce foundation can be traced to George Soros. I wondered how the globalist were able to use the carbon emissions to take us to a one world govt.and you just answered that for me.

    Gonzotx, that was an interesting article. It was 2003, the they snookered Gore. Globalist #2 was still in office. We now have #3. HWBush was #1.

  99. Third time i have tried to post this, took some stuff out, will see if it passes. The jest is, Gore is making hundreds if not billions off of his environmental shtick and his carbon print is as LARGE as TEXAS . He has deep roots to Soro’s and this is probably why the Clinton’s, among other reasons don’t have a relationship with the guy. He is not a good guy in mind and Turndown, I don’t have the time to keep posting the NUMEROUS articles and research on his connections and take offense @ your characterization. Good night

  101. It just wont let me post the numerous artiles out there that talk and document the BILLIONS Gore is making off his environmental crap. You can choose to believe in him, I for one do not and there is ample proof of his connections to Soros and co. Guess they all want to be billionaires off the backs of the middleclass. Turdown, you will have to read it on the net yourself. You know one could take offense @ your remarks…

  102. I am thinking tonight of the men and women we have put in harms way in Afghanistan and Iraq. Their treatment today is no better than what it was in late Victorian England:

    I went into a public-‘ouse to get a pint o’ beer,
    The publican ‘e up an’ sez, “We serve no red-coats here.”

    The girls be’ind the bar they laughed an’ giggled fit to die,

    I outs into the street again an’ to myself sez I:
    O it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, go away”;

    But it’s “Thank you, Mister Atkins”, when the band begins to play,

    The band begins to play, my boys, the band begins to play,

    O it’s “Thank you, Mister Atkins”, when the band begins to play.

    I went into a theatre as sober as could be,
    They gave a drunk civilian room, but ‘adn’t none for me;

    They sent me to the gallery or round the music-‘alls,
    But when it comes to fightin’, Lord! they’ll shove me in the stalls!

    For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, wait outside”;

    But it’s “Special train for Atkins” when the trooper’s on the tide,

    The troopship’s on the tide, my boys, the troopship’s on the tide,

    O it’s “Special train for Atkins” when the trooper’s on the tide.

    Yes, makin’ mock o’ uniforms that guard you while you sleep

    Is cheaper than them uniforms, an’ they’re starvation cheap;

    An’ hustlin’ drunken soldiers when they’re goin’ large a bit

    Is five times better business than paradin’ in full kit.

    Then it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, ‘ow’s yer soul?”

    But it’s “Thin red line of ‘eroes” when the drums begin to roll,

    The drums begin to roll, my boys, the drums begin to roll,

    O it’s “Thin red line of ‘eroes” when the drums begin to roll.

    We aren’t no thin red ‘eroes, nor we aren’t no blackguards too,

    But single men in barricks, most remarkable like you;
    An’ if sometimes our conduck isn’t all your fancy paints,

    Why, single men in barricks don’t grow into plaster saints;

    While it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, fall be’ind”,

    But it’s “Please to walk in front, sir”, when there’s trouble in the wind,

    There’s trouble in the wind, my boys, there’s trouble in the wind,

    O it’s “Please to walk in front, sir”, when there’s trouble in the wind.

    You talk o’ better food for us, an’ schools, an’ fires, an’ all:

    We’ll wait for extry rations if you treat us rational.
    Don’t mess about the cook-room slops, but prove it to our face

    The Widow’s Uniform is not the soldier-man’s disgrace.
    For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Chuck him out, the brute!”

    But it’s “Saviour of ‘is country” when the guns begin to shoot;

    An’ it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ anything you please;

    AND TOMMY AIN’T NO BLOOM’N FOOL — YOU BE THAT TOMMY SEES!

  103. A President Hillary Clinton would never dither while we had troops in the field and their general has made a proposal and needs an answer. She would make a decision, whereas Mr. Obama believes the situation requires more study. The problem with his approach is it wastes time and lives, and he has had many months to study the problem but apparently cannot decide, That is why she got 37 flag officers supporting her whereas Mr, Obama got only that 90 day wonder McPeak. He was like Queen For A Day or Head of the Airforce for 90 days–long enough to change their uniform genereating widespread discontent which caused his successor to reverse the misake.

  104. No successful president makes every decision based solely on politics. He must learn to govern. The right decision is the right decision because it is the right decision. You want buy in, but you do not shrink from a decision simply because everyone does not agree.

  105. I doubt Gore (or anyone) is making “billions”. To call environmentalism “crap” is offensive. Do you deny evolution and the holocaust too?

    Gore should have been President in 2000, just like HIllary should have been in 2008. They are both that good. If Hillary had gone outside politics, as Bill has, she would probably be making as much money as Gore has — and putting it right back into good works, like Gore is.

  106. THsi is the same kind of attack that gets made on any real reformer: on Bill and Hillary, on Palin — and on Gore.

    Turndownobama, You are right about Gore, we must remember the real democrats and what it was like in the 90’s when we had a real democrat in, we must never shoot ourselves in the foot. I voted for Gore and hated the globalist that cheated his way in, just like the globalist we have now that cheated his way in also. Obama is a continuation of the elitists that are leading us to the one world govt.

    Gore is a real enviromentalist.

    I heard they changed the Kyoto protocol some, but I am still leary of it. BC signed the Kyoto II, but never sent it to the Senate for ratification. I wonder why??

    =====================

    Thanks for good sense.

    I heard that Obama has got the Kyoto treaty weakened. This is his pattern. Pass something LABELED ‘health care’ that really favors his big donors, the insurers and the drug companies. Pass legislation labeled to stop nuclear waste pollution but change the fine print to favor the polluters. Pass a “Lily Ledbetter Act” that has its teeth taken out.
    Same now with the Kyoto treaty: pass something with that name which now has content to favor the polluting nations.

    As for why Bill didn’t send it to the Senate, remember what the Senate did to another treaty that Bill had signed (nuclear disarmament iirc). THey brought it up unexpectedly and voted it down. Bill was waiting for more liberal Senators to get in.

  108. Look, a sign these anti-Gore hit pieces are dishonest, is their talking about his electrical use “as a private citizen.” He is only a private citizen in the sense of not being a government official. They might as well say the same thing of Bill Clinton, and complain about the electric bill at the Clintons’ Chautauqua house.

    Both Gore and Bill are running big organizations doing many big things, even if they are doing some of it from their own big homes; that’s why they NEED big homes. What it means is that they’re working 24/7, they’re giving up much of their privacy for this good work.

  109. Health care by coercive government

    “America’s Founding Fathers established a government based on the consent of the governed. They never envisioned a government that ran the lives of its citizens with or without their consent. Suffice it to say they would turn in their graves if they read the 1,900-plus-page health care reform bill the House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on Saturday. (Proponents of the bill have promoted it for months using multiple fairy tales that are ably exposed on page 21 by The Examiner’s David Freddoso and Mark Hemingway.)

    That American citizens should be fined or even put in federal prison for refusing to purchase government-approved health insurance is as un-American as any idea we can imagine. But such a mandate is the very heart of the bill written behind closed doors by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her privileged pals. If their bill is approved by the House tomorrow, we will be a big step closer to the day when everybody gets their health care insurance through the government or from an approved insurer offering policies that meet meticulously detailed specifications contained in thousands of pages of federal regulations….”

  110. RGB,
    At least Mazdam Nissan and Honda aren’t trying to shoot us!”’

    BTW, Anyone else think it’s awfully strange for 1 guy with a couple of handguns to be able to shoot almost 50 people, 12 of them critically, in such a short span of time?

    Especially when he was shooting ast soldiers, not civilians.

    Something don’t add up here. But now that we know he’s alive maybe we’ll find ut the truth.

  111. Here’s an interesting perspective on the shooter, from another blog;

    ‘You can’t mistake a dead person for one in critical condition. That’s a big red flag we’re in for a wild ride!

    I thought I’d heard it all. He’s dead, no he’s alive, quick bring in his double. What a bunch of garbage. I can barely stand to watch it.’

  112. From AS;

    Admired Homicide Bombers

    What we know:

    Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan is a U.S. citizen whose parents are Palestinians from the West Bank, according to the Washington Post.

    He wrote Allah on his door, according to a neighbor, in Arabic. Allah on the door.

    Hasan was put on probation early in his postgraduate work at the Uniformed Service University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Md. He was disciplined for proselytizing about his Muslim faith with patients and colleagues, according to the source, who worked with him at the time. NPR

    Federal law enforcement officials say the suspected Fort Hood, Texas, shooter had come to their attention at least six months ago because of Internet postings that discussed suicide bombings and other threats.

    The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case.

    One of the Web postings that authorities reviewed is a blog that equates suicide bombers with a soldier throwing himself on a grenade to save the lives of his comrades. (more here)
    On his blog is a link to an article “Martyrdom in Islam vs Suicide Bombing”

    He was happy about the Muslim solider who shot and killed a soldier and wounded another at a Little Rock Military recruiting station. Hasan said Muslims should rise up against the aggressors. Maybe we should have more of these…..strapping bombs on and going into Times Square”.
    The officials had access to Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan’s military record. They said he received a poor performance evaluation while at Walter Reed.

    They promoted him to major. Jihadi Malik should have been removed from military service. Yes, the lawsuits would have been flying, but so what? Those great Americans would still be alive.

    This was “not the act of a crazy”. This was not the random act of a nutcase. It was execution style, close range. He shot 44 – 50 rounds – that’s a lot of ammunition to come out of those two guns in such a short period of time. This was premeditated. “A deliberate act of execution of the largest army base in America”.

    Neighbors say he was giving away his possessions this morning and PASSING OUT QURANS. Newscaster: “he was proud of his religion”.

  113. MOONONLUTO,

    Your review of SquaT;S PERFORMANCE YESTERDAY WAS APPARENTLY DEAD ON!

    “But instead of a somber chief executive offering reassuring words and expressions of sympathy and compassion, viewers saw a wildly disconnected and, inappropriately light president making introductory remarks. At the event, a Tribal Nations Conference hosted by the Department of Interior’s Bureau of Indian affairs, the president thanked various staffers and offered a “shout-out” to “Dr. Joe Medicine Crow — that Congressional Medal of Honor winner.” Three minutes in, the president spoke about the shooting, in measured and appropriate terms. Who is advising him?

    Anyone at home aware of the major news story of the previous hours had to have been stunned. An incident like this requires a scrapping of the early light banter. The president should apologize for the tone of his remarks, explain what has happened, express sympathy for those slain and appeal for calm and patience until all the facts are in. That’s the least that should occur.

  114. And I’m also wondering again how one guy with a yhandgun could cause so much carnage.

    Larry Johnson agrees;

    agree that “two handguns” do not make sense. Let’s assume he had two 9mm handguns. You can get up to 18 rounds in each. If he is firing both it is difficult to kill and wound more than 40 people. It is one thing to have one handgun and multiple magazines (you can shoot and reload pretty quick with that configuration) but it is difficult to reload two handguns at the same time.

    More info will come out and the story will likely change.

  116. The myth of ’08, demolished

    By Charles Krauthammer
    Friday, November 6, 2009

    Sure, Election Day 2009 will scare moderate Democrats and make passage of Obamacare more difficult. Sure, it makes it easier for resurgent Republicans to raise money and recruit candidates for 2010. But the most important effect of Tuesday’s elections is historical. It demolishes the great realignment myth of 2008.

    In the aftermath of last year’s Obama sweep, we heard endlessly about its fundamental, revolutionary, transformational nature. How it was ushering in an FDR-like realignment for the 21st century in which new demographics — most prominently, rising minorities and the young — would bury the GOP far into the future. One book proclaimed “The Death of Conservatism,” while the more modest merely predicted the terminal decline of the Republican Party into a regional party of the Deep South or a rump party of marginalized angry white men.

    This was all ridiculous from the beginning. The ’08 election was a historical anomaly. A uniquely charismatic candidate was running at a time of deep war weariness, with an intensely unpopular Republican president, against a politically incompetent opponent, amid the greatest financial collapse since the Great Depression. And still he won by only seven points.

    Exactly a year later comes the empirical validation of that skepticism. Virginia — presumed harbinger of the new realignment, having gone Democratic in ’08 for the first time in 44 years — went red again. With a vengeance. Barack Obama had carried it by six points. The Republican gubernatorial candidate won by 17 — a 23-point swing. New Jersey went from plus-15 Democratic in 2008 to minus-four in 2009. A 19-point swing.

    What happened? The vaunted Obama realignment vanished. In 2009 in Virginia, the black vote was down by 20 percent; the under-30 vote by 50 percent. And as for independents, the ultimate prize of any realignment, they bolted. In both Virginia and New Jersey they’d gone narrowly for Obama in ’08. This year they went Republican by a staggering 33 points in Virginia and by an equally shocking 30 points in New Jersey.

    White House apologists will say the Virginia Democrat was weak. If the difference between Bob McDonnell and Creigh Deeds was so great, how come when the same two men ran against each other statewide for attorney general four years ago the race was a virtual dead heat? Which made the ’09 McDonnell-Deeds rematch the closest you get in politics to a laboratory experiment for measuring the change in external conditions. Run them against each other again when it’s Obamaism in action and see what happens. What happened was a Republican landslide.

    The Obama coattails of 2008 are gone. The expansion of the electorate, the excitement of the young, came in uniquely propitious Democratic circumstances and amid unparalleled enthusiasm for electing the first African American president.

    November ’08 was one shot, one time, never to be replicated. Nor was November ’09 a realignment. It was a return to the norm — and definitive confirmation that 2008 was one of the great flukes in American political history.

    The irony of 2009 is that the anti-Democratic tide overshot the norm — deeply blue New Jersey, for example, elected a Republican governor for the first time in 12 years — because Democrats so thoroughly misread 2008 and the mandate they assumed it bestowed. Obama saw himself as anointed by a watershed victory to remake American life. Not letting the cup pass from his lips, he declared to Congress only five weeks after his swearing-in his “New Foundation” for America — from remaking the one-sixth of the American economy that is health care to massive government regulation of the economic lifeblood that is energy.

    Moreover, the same conventional wisdom that proclaimed the dawning of a new age last November dismissed the inevitable popular reaction to Obama’s hubristic expansion of government, taxation, spending and debt — the tea party demonstrators, the town hall protesters — as a raging rabble of resentful reactionaries, AstroTurf-phony and Fox News-deranged.

    Some rump. Just last month Gallup found that conservatives outnumber liberals by 2 to 1 (40 percent to 20 percent) and even outnumber moderates (at 36 percent). So on Tuesday, the “rump” rebelled. It’s the natural reaction of a center-right country to a governing party seeking to rush through a left-wing agenda using temporary majorities created by the one-shot election of 2008. The misreading of that election — and of the mandate it allegedly bestowed — is the fundamental cause of the Democratic debacle of 2009.

  117. I am not a verteran politican, but had they put HRC in for 8 years, who is truly central, and who works well across the aisle, but has liberal leaning, OO would have gotten the next 4, and perhaps 8 had he learned from HRC, and played his cards right. HRC would have dealt with the economy, and health care, and OO would have been able to deal with other liberal issues.

    Now, people are more and more beginning to think he is not capable. He truely suffers from the Messiah Syndrome, in which people have told him if he says it, ya verily it shall come to pass and be true, without any work or compromise from him.

    The Dims really blew it.

  118. NMF,

    I didn’t watch the interview but I didn’t have to. Reports of his clueless,cold rambling says it all.

    Like I said before – I wonder which, in Squat’s mind – is a bigger obstacle to ramming HCR through on Sunday – the capitol steps protests, the 10.2% unemployment or this.

    or none of the above. Lots to keep people focused away from the HCR bill.

    One thing is for sure, while everyone’s busy talking about the massacre and the protests and the unemployment rate no one’s paying attention to the third cup. Inspired use of news dump Friday, dontchathink?

  119. Troubling portrait emerges of Fort Hood suspect

    WASHINGTON – His name appears on radical Internet postings. A fellow officer says he fought his deployment to Iraq and argued with soldiers who supported U.S. wars. He required counseling as a medical student because of problems with patients.

    There are many unknowns about Nidal Malik Hasan, the man authorities say is responsible for the worst mass killing on a U.S. military base. Most of all, his motive.

    For six years before reporting for duty at Fort Hood, Texas, in July, the 39-year-old Army major worked at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center pursuing his career in psychiatry, as an intern, a resident and, last year, a fellow in disaster and preventive psychiatry. He received his medical degree from the military’s Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Md., in 2001.

    While an intern at Walter Reed, Hasan had some “difficulties” that required counseling and extra supervision, said Dr. Thomas Grieger, who was the training director at the time.

    Grieger said privacy laws prevented him from going into details but noted that the problems had to do with Hasan’s interactions with patients. He recalled Hasan as a “mostly very quiet” person who never spoke ill of the military or his country.

    “He swore an oath of loyalty to the military,” Grieger said. “I didn’t hear anything contrary to those oaths.”

    But, more recently, federal agents grew suspicious.

    At least six months ago, Hasan came to the attention of law enforcement officials because of Internet postings about suicide bombings and other threats, including posts that equated suicide bombers to soldiers who throw themselves on a grenade to save the lives of their comrades.

    They had not determined for certain whether Hasan is the author of the posting, and a formal investigation had not been opened before the shooting, said law enforcement officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss the case.

    In an interview with The Washington Post, Hasan’s aunt, Noel Hasan of Falls Church, Va., said he had been harassed about being a Muslim in the years after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks and he wanted out of the Army.

    “Some people can take it and some people cannot,” she said. “He had listened to all of that and he wanted out of the military.”

    She said he had sought a discharge from the military for several years, and even offered to repay the cost of his medical training.

    A military official told The Associated Press that Hasan was in the preparation stage of deployment, which can take months. The official said Hasan had indicated he didn’t want to go to Iraq but was willing to serve in Afghanistan. The official did not have authorization to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

    A second military official said Hasan’s family has Palestinian roots. There have been reports that he was harassed for his Muslim religion, but the official says there is no indication Hasan filed a complaint within the military about that.

    Terrorism task force agents plan to interview several of Hasan’s relatives Friday, according to a law enforcement official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to discuss the case.

    Noel Hasan said her nephew “did not make many friends” and would say “they military was his life.”

    A cousin, Nader Hasan, told The New York Times that after counseling soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with post-traumatic stress disorder, Hasan knew war firsthand.

    “He was mortified by the idea of having to deploy,” Nader Hasan said. “He had people telling him on a daily basis the horrors they saw over there.”

    Federal law-enforcement agents ordered an evacuation of the apartment complex where Hasan lived in Killeen, Texas, Thursday night and conducted a search of his home, said Hilary Shine, director of public information for the city. She didn’t say what was found during the search.

    Officials said earlier that federal search warrants were being drawn up to authorize the seizure of his computer.

    Retired Army Col. Terry Lee, who said he worked with Hasan, told Fox News that Hasan had hoped President Barack Obama would pull troops out of Afghanistan and Iraq. Lee said Hasan got into frequent arguments with others in the military who supported the wars, and had tried hard to prevent his pending deployment.

    Col. Kimberly Kesling, deputy commander of clinical services at Darnall Army Medical Center at Fort Hood, said she had known Hasan.

    “You wouldn’t think that someone who works in your facility and provided excellent care for his patients, which he did, could do something like this,” Kesling said. She praised his work ethic, saying, “In my personal interactions, there was never any indication he would do something like this.” Kesling described him as “a quiet man who wouldn’t seek the limelight” and sais she was ‘shocked’ when she heard that he was the man suspected of carrying out the shootings.

    Hasan attended prayers regularly when he lived outside Washington, often in his Army uniform, said Faizul Khan, a former imam at a mosque Hasan attended in Silver Spring, Md. He said Hasan was a lifelong Muslim.

    “I got the impression that he was a committed soldier,” Khan said. He spoke often with Hasan about Hasan’s desire for a wife.

    On a form filled out by those seeking spouses through a program at the mosque, Hasan listed his birthplace as Arlington, Va., but his nationality as Palestinian, Khan said.

    “I don’t know why he listed Palestinian,” Khan said, “He was not born in Palestine.”

    Nothing stood out about Hasan as radical or extremist, Khan said.

    “We hardly ever got to discussing politics,” Khan said. “Mostly we were discussing religious matters, nothing too controversial, nothing like an extremist.”

    Hasan earned his rank of major in April 2008, according to a July 2008 Army Times article.

    He served eight years as an enlisted soldier. He also served in the ROTC as an undergraduate at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg. He received a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry there in 1997.

  120. NOVEMBER 5, 2009

    The Madness of Queen Nancy By

    JOHN FUND

    It’s one thing to be serene under fire, it’s another to be delusional.

    More than a few Democrats in Congress are perplexed and worried that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is insisting on ramming through a 1,900-page health care bill on Saturday, just days after her party took heavy losses in Tuesday’s elections. “It reminds me of Major Nicholson, the obsessed British major in the film ‘Bridge on the River Kwai,'” one Democrat told me. “She is fixated on finishing her health care bridge even as she’s lost sight of where it’s going and what damage it could cause to her own troops.”

    Indeed, the Speaker’s take on Tuesday’s off-year elections struck some of her own members as delusive “happy talk.” “From our perspective, we won last night,” a cheerful Ms. Pelosi told reporters, citing her party’s pick-up of a single House seat in a New York special election and retention of another strongly Democratic seat in California.

    That’s not how many of her own troops see it. Democratic Rep. Parker Griffith of Alabama told Politico.com that members are “very, very sensitive” to the fact that the agenda being pushed by party leaders has “the potential to cost some of our front-line members their seats”

    On health care, added New Jersey Democrat Bill Pascrell: “People who had weak knees before are going to have weaker knees now.”

    Ms. Pelosi, however, apparently thinks the moment is ripe to use sheer political muscle to pass legislation reordering one sixth of the economy, with zero Republican support. The right mixture of “incentives” and Rahm Emanuel-style pressure, she believes, will bring enough Democrats to heel to vote for the bill.

    The obsession Speaker Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have with passing health care strikes some Democratic moderates as a completely misplaced priority. Polls show that fewer than a fifth of Americans rank health care reform as the most important issue. Their biggest concern right now is jobs. Only 29% of voters in the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll believe the economy “has hit the bottom.”

    That’s also the message from Moody’s Mark Zandi, who has become the de facto chief outside economic adviser to the Democratic Congress in recent months and has been telling House Democrats to expect unemployment to be “sticky and stubborn,” remaining near 10% a year from now. A similar warning comes from Christina Romer, chair of President Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers, who predicts unemployment will be 9.5% when midterm elections occur a year from now.

    These considerations spook not just the 49 House Democrats who sit in districts won by John McCain last year. Even liberals say lessons need to be taken from Tuesday’s shellacking: “What the exit polls showed was real voter fatigue with how crowded the plate is,” Rep. Gerry Connolly of Virginia, chairman of his party’s freshman class, told the New York Times. “We need to take a deep breath, step back and clean the plate before we add to it.”

    That the bill would be a job killer isn’t the only concern. Democrats worry about a backlash from the one-fourth of seniors enrolled in Medicare Advantage — a program that faces steep cuts in both the likely Senate and House bills.

    But Speaker Pelosi isn’t about to step back. In fact, she plans to force her troops to vote on health care just one day after Friday’s jobless numbers are due, which are likely to show unemployment still growing. “When I take this bill to the floor, it will win,” she proclaimed earlier this year.

    One Democratic House moderate says the leadership has mislearned a lesson from the 1994 collapse of Hillary Clinton’s health care bill. “They believe they lost the elections that year because they failed to pass anything,” he says. “But they forget it might have been even worse if they’d passed the wrong bill.”

    The obsession with passing a clearly flawed and overly complex health care bill does indeed recall the classic movie in which Major Nicholson (played memorably by Alec Guinness) convinces his fellow British POWs in Thailand to build a railway bridge for their Japanese captors — losing touch with the larger reality that the bridge would be used by the enemy against his own people.

    John Feenery, who worked for then-House Minority Leader Bob Michel, sees many similarities with Congress’s ill-fated rush to pass “catastrophic” health coverage for seniors in 1988. “Like the catastrophic bill, the Democrats’ health care bill frontloads the pain and backloads the gain,” he told CNN last month. Because Democrats wanted to avoid a negative deficit score from the Congressional Budget Office, taxes went up immediately while benefits were phased in. But seniors revolted. House Ways and Means Chairman Dan Rostenkowski was famously chased down a Chicago street by an angry mob. In November, 1989 — almost exactly 20 years ago — Congress took the extraordinary step of repealing the catastrophic health care law.

    Should the far more complex health care bill now being debated pass, no one expects it could be fully repealed. But Democrats surely would pay a political price for passing a liberal bill with no bipartisan support. Like Major Nicholson on the River Kwai, they may wake up to find they built a monument to a set of presumptions that were really a form of madness.

  121. Obama’s weakness:

    http://wcbstv.com/politics/governor.david.paterson.2.1294872.html

    Embattled Gov. David Paterson is pulling out all the stops to save his job. He plans to mount a major ad blitz to tell New Yorkers about all the good things he’s done for the Empire State.

    The election may be over, but the political ads aren’t. The governor is now taking to the air waves to convince New Yorkers he deserves to stay in office.

    “What it’s geared to do is talk about his very good record over the last year, the things he’s done for the state, including closing a $35 billion budget,” said veteran political consultant Bill Lynch.

    The ads are aimed at improving Paterson’s low poll numbers and sending a message to other Democrats, including President Barack Obama, that he is determined to seek another term in office.

    “Once people know the things he’s done for this state they will start to look at him differently,” said Lynch.

    Paterson, whose popularity currently hovers in the 20 percent range, was seriously wounded when Obama let it be known he didn’t want Paterson to run because Republicans like Rudy Giuliani consistently beat him in the polls. But Obama’s recent lack of success in backing local candidates, including New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, has empowered Paterson.

    “The President went to New Jersey five times for Corzine and wasn’t able to turn that around, so I think here in New York, New Yorkers know everything is local,” said Lynch.

    But that’s not all Paterson is doing. He’s bringing on board campaign powerhouse Harold Ickes, who was former President Bill Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff.

  122. This might be what starts Obama on his way below 50% in all polls:

    http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Jobless-rate-tops-10-pct-for-apf-563122944.html?x=0&.v=8

    The unemployment rate has surpassed 10 percent for the first time since 1983 — and is likely to go higher.[snip]

    Economists say the unemployment rate could climb as high as 10.5 percent next year because employers remain reluctant to hire.

    Counting those who have settled for part-time jobs or stopped looking for work, the unemployment rate would be 17.5 percent, the highest on records dating from 1994.

  123. White House apologists will say the Virginia Democrat was weak. If the difference between Bob McDonnell and Creigh Deeds was so great, how come when the same two men ran against each other statewide for attorney general four years ago the race was a virtual dead heat? Which made the ‘09 McDonnell-Deeds rematch the closest you get in politics to a laboratory experiment for measuring the change in external conditions. Run them against each other again when it’s Obamaism in action and see what happens. What happened was a Republican landslide.
    ————————————————-
    Whether you like Krauthammer or not (I happen to like him very much) he has more ability to analyze and predict what will happen better than any journalist. He is very astute, and it would be a pleasure to meet him some day and tell him that. Now you can argue that Mr. Obama inherited a bad situation and you would be right. But that is not the question. The question is what has he done to make it better, and the answer is very little except to use it as a pretext for taking over the government which is what his principal Soros wanted all along. I was reading The Economist last night and there is an article in that normally respectable magazine (it is far better than god forbid Newsweek or Time). It said Obama has not accomplished great things yet. The operative word is yet. But it gave him credit for making other countries feel better about the United States. My reaction to that is anyone who is not Bush and have conjugated a verb would be better than that. Anyone who gave a trillion ot the IMF would be better than Bush. Anyone who apologizes to them for what his own country has done relieves a little of their war guilt and makes them less anxious about their restive Islamic populations and the corresponding loss of the European identity. But it all comes back to a single point: the words were pretty. But they are just words. Where is the action. The bottom line is the European leaders most likely want world government and the American People do not. That is the difference.

  124. I would not post anything or believe anything Alex Jones has to say about any liberal. He is a Hillary hater from the word go. He also is a 9/11 truther. He is a far, far right wing nut of the highest order. The only thing that I like or even listen to is he is a Bilderberg chaser. He is right on that one thing.

    Al Gore is a great man and was cheated as Hillary was by the same crooks.

  125. The real test for Obama will come when Deval Patrick runs again for Governor. If he loses badly, then that may be enough for Obama to decide not to run again.

  126. wbboei, lets hope that happens. When does Patrick come up for re-election? I am sure Soros is trying to move things along quickly so he can have all his plans well underway before Obama either quits or loses.

  127. The irony of 2009 is that the anti-Democratic tide overshot the norm — deeply blue New Jersey, for example, elected a Republican governor for the first time in 12 years — because Democrats so thoroughly misread 2008 and the mandate they assumed it bestowed. Obama saw himself as anointed by a watershed victory to remake American life. Not letting the cup pass from his lips, he declared to Congress only five weeks after his swearing-in his “New Foundation” for America — from remaking the one-sixth of the American economy that is health care to massive government regulation of the economic lifeblood that is energy.
    ———————————————-
    Krauthammer again is to right. It is easy to misread a situation when you become emotionally involved. A wise man is a detached one, and these people are not. It is worse however with the media–I have never ever seen it as bad as they are. Opinions may be partisan but when they creep into our analysis, of serious problems they are fatal to credibility. This is why opinions and judgment must not merge when you are a decision maker. Good decision making, just as good reporting requires giving both sides a fair hearing. And you do not find that ability anymore at CNN, and it was lost at NBC when they were bought out by Jack Welch and turned into a widget factory. There are revealing passages about this in his book Winning that foreshadow exactly what we saw in the 2008 election up to and including now.

  128. Wbboei, Deval Patrick has been basing his HOPE of reelection on a third party candidate that is sure to run. After New Jersey voters threw out Corzine, even with a strong third party candidate on the ballot, it is now clear that Patrick’s HOPEs will be dashed. We need to keep exposing Obama and his boobery and corruptions and drive him and anti-Hillary Dimocrats from office. That is the way to pave the way for Hillary and real Democrats or Independents to rescue the country.

  129. Some rump. Just last month Gallup found that conservatives outnumber liberals by 2 to 1 (40 percent to 20 percent) and even outnumber moderates (at 36 percent). So on Tuesday, the “rump” rebelled. It’s the natural reaction of a center-right country to a governing party seeking to rush through a left-wing agenda using temporary majorities created by the one-shot election of 2008. The misreading of that election — and of the mandate it allegedly bestowed — is the fundamental cause of the Democratic debacle of 2009.
    ————————————————————
    In every country where the radical left has taken over, the population has been conservative. Change is introduced through shock doctrine methods. Once the people become dependent on government for survival the game is over, and it really does not matter what the people are conservative or not.

    Cuba is a case in point, albeit an extreme one. Once Castro took over he set up committess for the preservation of the revolution which spied on neighbors. In the early days, he executed his political adversaries, whereas later in the game he found that it was just as easy to impose internal exile on them, where they could not get a job and became a burden on their families. Often those poor souls committed suicide. Someone told me the other day that Castro thinks Chavez is going too fast in Venezuela. Of course Hugo has a friendly government in Washington where Castro did not

    The issue arose as recently as last week when Chavez declared that all children between the ages of 3 and 10 were wards of the state. They would be taken away from their parents with visitation rights 3 times per month. The person who told me this is a good Catholic, who was trained by Spanish Jesuits, and he said they had a saying give me a child before 5 years old and I will give you a good Catholic. Castro tried the same thing and the public uproar was so bad that he backed off.

    I am so glad you are back with your amazing analytical skills.

    I’m a huge Krauthammer fan as well.

  131. MOP was spot on yesterday when he commented on Squat;s disconnect. From what I’ve read, it sounds like his “My Pet Goat” moment.

    President Obama didn’t wait long after Tuesday’s devastating elections to give critics another reason to question his leadership, but this time the subject matter was more grim than a pair of governorships.

    After news broke out of the shooting at the Fort Hood Army post in Texas, the nation watched in horror as the toll of dead and injured climbed. The White House was notified immediately and by late afternoon, word went out that the president would speak about the incident prior to a previously scheduled appearance. At about 5 p.m., cable stations went to the president. The situation called for not only his trademark eloquence, but also grace and perspective.

    But instead of a somber chief executive offering reassuring words and expressions of sympathy and compassion, viewers saw a wildly disconnected and inappropriately light president making introductory remarks. At the event, a Tribal Nations Conference hosted by the Department of Interior’s Bureau of Indian affairs, the president thanked various staffers and offered a “shout-out” to “Dr. Joe Medicine Crow — that Congressional Medal of Honor winner.” Three minutes in, the president spoke about the shooting, in measured and appropriate terms. Who is advising him?

    Anyone at home aware of the major news story of the previous hours had to have been stunned. An incident like this requires a scrapping of the early light banter. The president should apologize for the tone of his remarks, explain what has happened, express sympathy for those slain and appeal for calm and

  132. admin, What the heck is happening? I just heard that and the shooter is still on loose. I hope its not another muslim because that will be bad for them.

  133. EXPLOSIVE: Ft. Hood suspect reportedly shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’. (Via The BlogProf). On NPR I heard — I can’t find the story on their website yet — that he had given a presentation on the Koran at a professional conference where he claimed that unbelievers should be beheaded, burned, etc. to the discomfiture of the attendees.

    UPDATE: Here’s the NPR segment. Key bit:

    He gave a Grand Rounds presentation. . . You take turns giving a lecture on, you know, the correct treatment of schizophrenia, the right drugs to prescribe for personality disorder, you know, that sort of thing. But instead of giving an academic paper, he gave a lecture on the Koran, and they said it didn’t seem to be just an informational lecture, but it seemed to be his own beliefs. That’s what a lot of people thought.

    He talked about how if you’re a nonbeliever the Koran says you should have your head cut off, you should have oil poured down your throat, you should be set on fire. And I said well couldn’t this just be his educating you? And the psychiatrist said yes, but one of the Muslims in the audience, another psychiatrist, raised his hand and was quite disturbed and he said you know, a lot of us don’t believe these things you’re saying, and that there was no place where Hasan couched it as this is what the Koran teaches but you know I don’t believe it. And people actually talked in the hallway afterwards about ‘is he one of these people that’s going to freak out and shoot people someday?’

  134. DEVELOPING: The Orlando Fire Departement said eight people were shot and four of them are trauma patients, MyFoxOrlando reported.

    Police have surrounded a Florida high-rise after gun shots were reportedly fired.

    The Legions Place office building in downtown Orlando was ordered on lockdown Friday afternoon as officers began a floor-by-floor evacuatio

  135. http://www.swamppolitics.com/news/politics/blog/2009/11/white_house_fox_offlimits_stra.html

    At least one Democratic political strategist has gotten a blunt warning from the White House to never appear on Fox News Channel, an outlet that presidential aides have depicted as not so much a news-gathering operation as a political opponent bent on damaging the Obama administration.[snip]

    One Democratic strategist said that shortly after an appearance on Fox he got a phone call from a White House official telling him not to be a guest on the show again. The call had an intimidating tone, he said.

    The message was, “We better not see you on again,” said the strategist, who spoke on condition of anonymity so as not to run afoul of the White House. An implicit suggestion, he said, was that “clients might stop using you if you continue.”

    In urging Democratic consultants to spurn Fox, White House officials might be trying to isolate the network and make it appear more partisan.

    A boycott by Democratic strategists could also help drive the White House narrative that Fox is a fundamentally different creature than the other TV news networks. For their part, White House officials appear on Fox News — but sporadically and with “eyes wide open,” as one aide put it.

  136. Hillary should be speaking at the No Limits conference about now. We’ll try and get video if it is ever posted. All these murders, 10.2% unemployment, Obama’s continuing boobery, and health care, appear to have almost completely obliterated discussion of No Limits and Hillary. Like Lynn Forester, we’ll keep trying.

  137. MoveOn Threatens to Push Primary Opponents to Dems Voting Against Health Plan
    —————————————————————————-
    The problem blue dogs face now is being part of the new democratic party which is hostile to the interests of their constituents. What good is it to be a democrat if you live under the constant threat that Soros will unleash his moveon.org hounds of hell on you if you step out of line. It forces them to make a decision on whether to leave the party. They did that before you may recall during the Reagan Revolution. Some of my friends, like Ralph Hall of Texas who said he was too old to leave the party did. The survival of the party depends on whether it able to get back to its roots and resist the leftist globalist cabal which is now running the show. It is an imponderable.

    ===================

    Right. All this stuff that’s been posted against Gore, if the sources weren’t so nasty, we could look in those sources and find the same kind of stuff said against Bill and Hillary. Soros has donated to so many things, I’m sure he’s donated to some of Bill’s causes also. (And Bill and Hillary have made money on investments, too.) That doesn’t make Bill a bad guy. 😉

  139. Orlando shooting: There has been a mass shooting in an Orlando, FL office building at 1000 Legion Place. It’s been confirmed by local authorities that there are 2 dead, 6people shot in total and 5 have been transported to ORMC Hospital in Orlando.

    Police are currently searching for a Hipspanic male – 40 year old Jason Rodriguez born on 9/28/69. Rodriguez is driving a silver Nissan SUV, plate number D11 9UX.

    Rodriguez was apparently laid off from his job at an engineering firm operating out of the 8th floor of the building. He then left but returned with a gun and opened fire.

    Police are appealing to the public via live television news for more details on the whereabouts of the suspect.

    More details as we have them…

  140. From an article admin posted above:
    “But that’s not all Paterson is doing. He’s bringing on board campaign powerhouse Harold Ickes, who was former President Bill Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff.”

    Some people are hypothesizing that Hillary might run for governor of NY. Harold Ickes was Hillary’s biggest supporter; he was the guy who represented her at that notorious RBC meeting where the nomination was stolen from her. If he is going to work for Patterson’s reelection, I wonder if that has any bearing on whether Hillary may be considering running for that position….?

  141. Turndown, I am not a person who likes Soros, yes he has donated to BC’s Global iniative and he had donated to their campaigns. He also owns shares in the hedge fund that Chelsea works at, but that doesn’t mean they agree with Soros and his policies. It is apparent Soros stabbed Hillary in the back during her campaign for Obama. Many people donate to campaigns and such, it doesn’t mean anything.
    Just because Bill and Hillary have made money doesn’t make difference, all politicians make money. I remember them trying to say Hillary was using insider trading just because she turned $1000. into $100,000. in a very short time, well she is good at everything she does so I am sure she studied alot before investing in those cattle futures.
    THIS IS RWN’S TALKING OUT OF THEIR ASSES AGAIN AND DEFAMING THE ONLY ADMINISTRATION IN YEARS TO DO A GOOD JOB!!!

  142. Would be hilarious next year if it ended up that NY and NJ and Mass all had republican Govs. The bots heads would explode. I mean would you ever in your dreams expect to see those 3 states at the same time with rep govs.

    I am not a verteran politican, but had they put HRC in for 8 years, who is truly central, and who works well across the aisle, but has liberal leaning, OO would have gotten the next 4, and perhaps 8 had he learned from HRC, and played his cards right. HRC would have dealt with the economy, and health care, and OO would have been able to deal with other liberal issues.

    ======================

    Right, very sensible. Obama (if he were honest and not a racist) would have made a good VP while getting some near-the-job training.

    Hm, and look what he’s doing this year — he’s ACTING like a VP. Flying around making speeches, staying away from real work….

    (Well, VP Gore was an exception, he DID real work, and still is, God bless him.)

  144. MoonOnPluto, Joe Biden’s senate seat and Obama’s senate seat might go to Republicans too. Gillibrand might also have trouble keeping the Senate seat Hillary held.

    BTW, On our comments we always call you by your full name. But mops (unless wielded by Obama as a political prop) are honorable and worthy of admiration. 🙂

    Here’s one for the mops (which is also a warning about what happens when an inexperienced boob rat has power he does not know how to use):

  145. Clinton to visit Philippines
    (AFP) – 45 minutes ago

    WASHINGTON — US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Friday she would visit the Philippines after an upcoming trip to Singapore “to show solidarity” with the typhoon-battered nation.

    Tropical Storm Mirinae slammed into the Philippines this week, killing 27 people and leaving almost 16,000 people huddled in evacuation centers.

    Mirinae slammed into the Philippines’ main island, Luzon, on Saturday, dumping heavy rain and bringing strong winds just weeks after tropical storm Ketsana and typhoon Parma left about 1,100 dead and tens of thousands homeless.

    Washington announced Wednesday that Clinton would attend the APEC ministerial meeting scheduled for November 11-12 in Singapore.

    US officials say Clinton is due in the Philippines right after the Singapore trip.

    “I’ll be going to the Philippines, to show solidarity with our friends in the Philippines who have been battered by typhoons and have just suffered so much over the last weeks,” said Clinton.

    Hillary Clinton Predicts US House Will Pass Health-Care Bill

    WASHINGTON (Dow Jones)–U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton predicted Friday that the House of Representatives will pass a comprehensive health care bill this weekend.

    “I think we’re going to win a major part of that fight,” said Clinton, who led a failed attempt to overhaul health care in the early 1990s. “I can’t tell you how excited I am that for the first time in history the House is poised to pass comprehensive health-care reform.”

    The House is expected to vote Saturday or Sunday on a health-care bill.

    Clinton spoke Friday at a conference hosted by NoLimits.org, a non-profit, nonpartisan group founded by Clinton supporter Ann Lewis earlier this year after the primary presidential campaign ended.

    Clinton said she is focusing on improving the rights of women and children and reducing the levels of malnourishment and hunger around the world.

    She leaves Saturday for Berlin, where she will represent the U.S. to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

    “That event 20 years ago was the end of an era and as dangerous as the times were, it was easier to explain,” Clinton said. “It was us versus them.”

    Foreign diplomacy now requires more complex judgments, she said.

    Clinton will also travel to Singapore, China and the Philippines next week.

  148. Owens Breaks 4 Campaign Promises in first hour in Congress

    GOUVERNEUR, NY – Congressman-elect Bill Owens was sworn in at noon today.

    Owens indicated in a press release that he was now in favor of the bill in direct contrast to his earlier position during his campaign.

    During his campaign for Congress, Mr. Owens assured voters that he felt the public option had no place in the health care reform bill. Contrary to that position, Mr. Owens now indicates that he intends to vote in favor of the bill even though it now contains a public option.

    SNIP

    Breaking campaign promises is not unusual for politicians… it’s a cliche. This is almost certainly a record though. Mr. Owens broke no less than 4 promises in his first 24 hours in office. The voters of the 23rd district hoped that Mr. Owens would represent them as their Representative but it has become apparent that he represents only the Democratic Party leadership.

    I’ll bet his first impulse was to call the military stupid for having provoked the poor Muslim Dr. into such violent acts coz he was being harassed, he claimes, and suffered from pre-PTSD – as he’s nver gone into battle.

    ‘”We don’t know all the answers yet. And I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts,” Obama said in a Rose Garden statement otherwise devoted to the economy.

  152. Geithner wants more trillions for more TARPs

    ♦ Congressman Barney Frank (D-Massachusetts) and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner are pushing draft legislation that would make the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) an ordinary part of the nation’s economic life. Under the legislation, the President and Treasury Department would have an ongoing power to declare any bank “too big to fail” and supply federal bailout funds — without any serious public debate or oversight.

    unknownnews.org/0911-02.html

    Currently circulating on Capitol Hill is a draft of the House financial services committee’s “Financial Stability Improvement Act,” a wide-ranging effort to rein in too-big-to-fail institutions and bolster oversight of the financial-services industry. The legislation, spearheaded by Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), the committee’s chairman, and Secretary Geithner, who helped to craft the bill, would also create an oversight council staffed by government financial regulators, and would abolish the Office of Thrift Supervision, an agency faulted for its flimsy regulation before the crisis. (The Wall Street Journal has a good run-down of the legislation here.)

    The legislation is meeting stiff oppostion, though, from members of both parties. What has lawmakers like Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) and Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-Alab.) riled up is a provision in the bill they say gives the White House and Treasury unchecked authority to spend taxpayer money, without Congressional approval, to bail out any too-big-to-fail bank that’s poised to topple the economy. Sherman calls the provision “TARP on steroids,” writing in The Hill:

    Financial Services Committee and Treasury Department Release Draft Legislation to Address Systemic Risk, “Too Big to Fail” Institutions

    Washington, DC – Today, the House Financial Services Committee and the Treasury Department released draft legislation to address the issue of systemic risk and “too big to fail” financial institutions. The draft bill will:

    Create a mechanism for monitoring and reducing the threats that systemically risky firms pose to the financial system.
    Establish a process for winding down large, financially-troubled non-bank financial institutions in a way that protects American taxpayers and minimizes the impact on the financial system.
    Overhaul and update our financial regulatory system.

  153. State investigators taking dozens of computers from ACORN office on Canal Street
    By Martha Carr, The Times-Picayune
    November 06, 2009, 1:00PM

    Attorney General Buddy Caldwell has served a search warrant at the ACORN office at 2609 Canal Street, according to Tammi Arender Herring, a spokeswoman with the office.

    Investigators in khaki pants and polo shirts loaded several dozen computers and other electronic items into an SUV. They are also carrying records out of the building on handcarts.

    The large office building sits at the corner of Dorgenois and Canal. ACORN staffers were given no notice that a search would be conducted today, Herring said.

  154. And it’s not only trouble companies that could receive help under the House bill. Indeed, it would allow the president to loan solvent institutions unlimited funds “if necessary to prevent financial instability.”

    That creates a moral hazard problem, Sherman argues, “allow[ing] those institutions which are clearly systematically important (the top 10 to 25) to borrow at a lower cost. This will help the largest institutions get bigger, so they can pose a greater systemic risk.”

    The Financial Services Committee is holding a hearing on the bill this morning(10/29/09), with Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner testifying.

    Geithner Denies He Wants Bailout Authority
    By Mike Lillis 10/29/09 11:21 AM
    Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, who’s testifying this morning before the House Financial Services Committee on legislation empowering the White House to take over Wall Street firms when their failure threatens the finance system on the whole, just made a curious claim. Asked by Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) whether the legislation grants the White House the power to spend taxpayer dollars, Geithner had a terse, one-word response: “No.”

    The Treasury Secretary went on to say that the what’s being requested is merely “the authority to wind them [failed companies] down.”

    What he didn’t mention is that the winding down will require taxpayer dollars, at least in the early phases of a takeover.Those losses are designed to be recovered within 60 months by tapping shareholders and creditors, and if necessary by imposing an after-the-fact tax on other large and solvent institutions. Yet the provision also allows the government to extend that 60-month recovery window indefinitely.

    “It could be 60 years,” said Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.), in response to Geithner.

    “Further,” Sherman said in a statement yesterday, “it is difficult to see how any tax on financial institutions would provide hundreds of Billions of revenue, which might be needed to repay a large bailout.”

  157. Krauthammer:
    The ‘08 election was a historical anomaly. A uniquely charismatic candidate was running at a time of deep war weariness, with an intensely unpopular Republican president, against a politically incompetent opponent, amid the greatest financial collapse since the Great Depression. And still he won by only seven points.

    ======================

    And Hillary would have won by 12 points, per exit polls.

  158. More on Courageous KIM.

    And this article includes information on the police officer who took down Hasan, shooting him four times, Sgt. Kim Munley:

    The heroic policewoman who shot an army psychiatrist during a murderous gun rampage at an army base was today named as Sergeant Kimberly Munley.

    She had been on routine traffic patrol when Major Nidal Malik Hasan entered a medical centre at Ford Hood, Texas, shouted ‘Allahu Akbar‘ (God is greatest) and opened fire.

    It took just three minutes for the slightly built mother-of-one to get to the scene, engaging the killer in a gun battle which ended with him being shot four times.

    In the course of the cross-fire, Sgt Munley, who has a daughter, was shot in the leg. Hasan had managed to kill 13 and wound 30 others before she got there.

    Lt. Gen. Bob Cone described her actions as ‘amazing and aggressive’.

    ‘She was quite effective, one of our most impressive young policemen,’(sic) he added. ‘She walked up and basically engaged him. I think, certainly, this could’ve been far worse.’

    Hasan, who was furious about US military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, is also in a stable condition in hospital and under armed guard.

    Bet Hasan is gonna wish he’d gone to his 72 virgins rather than confronting the fact that an infidel woman took him down.

    😈

  159. Hmmmmmmmmmm…..

    Hasan connected to Squat WH.

    The gunman who killed 12 people today at Ft. Hood appears, based on current media reports, to be Army psychiatrist Nidal Hasan who was listed as a participant in a Homeland Security Policy Institute’s presidential transition task force last year.

    The task force was not officially affiliated with the White House. It was a project of the Homeland Security Policy Institute, an independent thinktank housed at George Washington University, aimed at drafting policy recommendations for the incoming Obama administration.

    According to the task force’s May 2009 report [pdf], a “Nidal Hasan” from the Uniformed Services University School of Medicine was a task force event participant. Other participants included Senate and House staffers, Department of Homeland Security officials, Defense Department officials, and reporters for Politico, the Washington Post, and the London Times….

  160. Committee Confirms: Comply With Pelosi-Care Or Go To Jail

    Today, Ranking Member of the House Ways and Means Committee Dave Camp (R-MI) released a letter from the non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) confirming that the failure to comply with the individual mandate to buy health insurance contained in the Pelosi health care bill (H.R. 3962, as amended) could land people in jail. The JCT letter makes clear that Americans who do not maintain “acceptable health insurance coverage” and who choose not to pay the bill’s new individual mandate tax (generally 2.5% of income), are subject to numerous civil and criminal penalties, including criminal fines of up to $250,000 and imprisonment of up to five years.

    n response to the JCT letter, Camp said: “This is the ultimate example of the Democrats’ command-and-control style of governing – buy what we tell you or go to jail. It is outrageous and it should be stopped immediately.”

    Key excerpts from the JCT letter appear below:

    “H.R. 3962 provides that an individual (or a husband and wife in the case of a joint return) who does not, at any time during the taxable year, maintain acceptable health insurance coverage for himself or herself and each of his or her qualifying children is subject to an additional tax.” [page 1]

    – – – – – – – – – –

    “If the government determines that the taxpayer’s unpaid tax liability results from willful behavior, the following penalties could apply…” [page 2]

    – – – – – – – – – –

    “Criminal penalties

    Prosecution is authorized under the Code for a variety of offenses. Depending on the level of the noncompliance, the following penalties could apply to an individual:

    • Section 7203 – misdemeanor willful failure to pay is punishable by a fine of up to $25,000 and/or imprisonment of up to one year.

    • Section 7201 – felony willful evasion is punishable by a fine of up to $250,000 and/or imprisonment of up to five years.” [page 3]

    When confronted with this same issue during its consideration of a similar individual mandate tax, the Senate Finance Committee worked on a bipartisan basis to include language in its bill that shielded Americans from civil and criminal penalties. The Pelosi bill, however, contains no similar language protecting American citizens from civil and criminal tax penalties that could include a $250,000 fine and five years in jail.

    “The Senate Finance Committee had the good sense to eliminate the extreme penalty of incarceration. Speaker Pelosi’s decision to leave in the jail time provision is a threat to every family who cannot afford the $15,000 premium her plan creates. Fortunately, Republicans have an alternative that will lower health insurance costs without raising taxes or cutting Medicare,” said Camp.

    According to the Congressional Budget Office the lowest cost family non-group plan under the Speaker’s bill would cost $15,000 in 2016.

  161. that amounts to insurance monthly premiums of $1250.00 PER MONTH per family!!

    WHO THE HELL CAN AFFORD THAT??

    we will all be in prison except the rich

    I have heard the average income is $50k per family but i would be its more likely 30k to 40k

    30K a year,breaks down to a monthly income before taxes at $2500

  163. Classmates says Hasan told others he was “a Muslim first and an American second.”

    A classmate of the Fort Hood shooting suspect says Maj. Nidal Hasan was an outspoken opponent of the U.S. war on terror and called it a “war against Islam.”

    Dr. Val Finnell was a classmate of Hasan’s at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Md. Both attended a master’s in public health program in 2007 and 2008.

    Finnell says he got to know Hasan in an environmental health class. At the end of the class, students gave presentations. Finnell says other classmates wrote on subjects such as dry cleaning chemicals and mold in homes, but Hasan’s topic was whether the war against terror was “a war against Islam.” Finnell described Hasan as a “vociferous opponent” of the terror war.

  164. Is Obama treating the office of the Presidency with the dignity it deserves?

    November 6, 12:54

    Is the White House missing a leader?

    Policy-wise, Barack Obama arguably came into his presidency unqualified. His foreign policy naiveté and spread-the-wealth-around fiscal policy mentality has thus far been a disaster. Unemployment continues to rise, North Korea and Iran continue to be pests, Hugo Chavez is emboldened, eco-radicals are taking over the legislative agenda, and Nancy Pelosi is dictating how health care will work in America.

    A number of friends in the military have told me that as Commander-in-Chief they must respect the office but they do not respect the person. So is Obama giving the office the respect it deserves by at least conducting himself like a President? The answer, unfortunately, is an emphatic no. Here are the top ten examples to prove this point:

    10. Obama nixes the Bush dress code of always wearing a jacket in the Oval Office. This might seem trivial but that office has witnessed some of the greatest Americans making the most difficult and important decisions effecting the entire world. As Andy Card, former White House Chief of Staff put it, “The Oval Office symbolizes…the Constitution, the hopes and dreams, and I’m going to say democracy. And when you have a dress code in the Supreme Court and a dress code on the floor of the Senate, floor of the House, I think it’s appropriate to have an expectation that there will be a dress code that respects the office of the President.” Some of his more classless staff even showed up in jeans at the beginning of his administration. Obama was so inspired he instituted “casual weekends.”

    9. The Obama beer summit. In attempts to cover up his “they acted stupidly” attack on the Cambridge, Massachusetts police department, Obama attempts to solve it by kicking back a few in the Rose Garden. This could only have been more embarrassing if he neglected to at least give a shout out to an American beer company…oh wait.

    8. Obama has never stopped campaigning. I suppose when you’re good at something you should keep at it. His townhall meetings look more like he’s trying to get votes than solve real problems. He has also done more fundraisers (23) than President Bush (6) and President Clinton (5) did combined in their first years in office.

    7. President Obama picks Joe Biden as his VEEP choice. Ok…that was just a joke, picking someone to be your VEEP isn’t beneath the dignity of office, but I mean really, Joe “you cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent” Biden? This is the same man that continues to champion a stimulus plan that hasn’t created one job!

    6. The war with Fox News. In attempts to bring Chicago politics to the White House, Obama tries to shut out the most popular news channel in America because they dare to hold the President accountable and refuse blind allegiance like the lapdog network of MSNBC.

    5. Obama reignites the war with Britain again. In the first visit by the leader of our most reliable ally, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown presents the American President with a pen holder created from the timbers of the HMS President, the sister ship of the HMS Resolute, which the desk in the Oval Office is made from. The American President presents PM Gordon Brown with 25 DVDs that are not correctly formatted to play in Europe.

    4. Maybe we should give the President a mulligan on that last one. After all he had a chance to redeem himself when he went to England to meet the Queen. This time he presented her with…drum roll please…an IPod! And what was on said IPod? None other than a couple of speeches made by the O-man himself.

    3. Obama becomes a pitchman in a commercial for George Lopez, “George. You need to change late-night. That’s the kind of change I can believe in.”

    2. Obama hits the late night circuit. In March he became the first sitting President to go on a late night comedy show when he went on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. This was bad enough before he decided to poke fun at the Special Olympics.

    1. Reality TV comes to the White House. No, seriously. Glamour girl Michelle Obama is hosting an episode of Iron Chef that will air on January 3rd.

    1a. Instead of giving an eloquent and heartfelt statement following the tragedy that occurred yesterday at Fort Hood, the President came across as aloof and disconnected. As NBC put it, “instead of a somber chief executive?offering reassuring words?and expressions of sympathy and compassion, viewers saw a wildly disconnected and inappropriately light president making introductory remarks.” He even “offered a ‘shout-out’ to ‘Dr. Joe Medicine Crow – that Congressional Medal of Honor winner.”

    Americans, you voted for change and you got it. But of course, change doesn’t always result in a good change. If President Obama can’t treat his job and the White House with the respect it deserves then how can he possibly respect the American people who look to him for leadership? If this list was compiled after 10 short months in office, what can we expect in the next 3 years?

    Exactly, the current resident at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. is not smart enough or is willing sell his soul to the devil to achieve being the first afro-american POTUS. I fully believe that is why Hillary isn’t POTUS, she would never allow Soros to own her as he owns Bambi.

  166. confloyd,

    There is a difference between being smart enough or not willing to sell his soleto the devil and being corrupt enough to not give a damn as long as he achieves his monstrous goals.

    Look, a sign these anti-Gore hit pieces are dishonest, is their talking about his electrical use “as a private citizen.” He is only a private citizen in the sense of not being a government official. They might as well say the same thing of Bill Clinton, and complain about the electric bill at the Clinton’s’ Chautauqua house.

    Both Gore and Bill are running big organizations doing many big things, even if they are doing some of it from their own big homes; that’s why they NEED big homes. What it means is that they’re working 24/7, they’re giving up much of their privacy for this good work.
    *****************************

    Jesus, that is an argument i would expect from an elitist. I need my big home because i do so many great things so i need to spend $30,000 on electricity a month and I am too important to take a common carrier jet, I need my private and very non Eco friendly fuel eat um up transportation

    and it’s ridiculous;os that i lecture you on your energy consumption but MY carbon prints can be…AS BIG AS TEXAS…and I’m am making hundreds of millions of dollars and if Obama and my friend get our agenda cap and trade thru our government, I will be a first environmentalist billionaire and you will get to send your own hard earned money to countries like Bolivia and Cuba because you are so big and bad.

    Funny how one can chose to agree with data if it supports their cause or not, but then this is America, at least for now…

    This will be the last I will say about this. You can have your love affair with Gore and make excuses, I will just chose not to read them.This blog has always been fair and balanced and i enjoy 99% of the discussion and have learned to look @ different sources i would not have in the past .This blog really is not for this level of discourse and if i added to that i do apologize on my part.

  169. gonzo,

    I have never been a Gore fan, either.

    OTOH, check this provision of poopsie’s bill and what it would mean to the average American;

    PELOSI: Buy a $15,000 Policy or Go to Jail
    JCT Confirms Failure to Comply with Democrats’ Mandate Can Lead to 5 Years in Jail
    Friday, November 06, 2009

    Today, Ranking Member of the House Ways and Means Committee Dave Camp (R-MI) released a letter from the non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) confirming that the failure to comply with the individual mandate to buy health insurance contained in the Pelosi health care bill (H.R. 3962, as amended) could land people in jail. The JCT letter makes clear that Americans who do not maintain “acceptable health insurance coverage” and who choose not to pay the bill’s new individual mandate tax (generally 2.5% of income), are subject to numerous civil and criminal penalties, including criminal fines of up to $250,000 and imprisonment of up to five years.

    In response to the JCT letter, Camp said: “This is the ultimate example of the Democrats’ command-and-control style of governing – buy what we tell you or go to jail. It is outrageous and it should be stopped immediately.”

    Key excerpts from the JCT letter appear below:

    “H.R. 3962 provides that an individual (or a husband and wife in the case of a joint return) who does not, at any time during the taxable year, maintain acceptable health insurance coverage for himself or herself and each of his or her qualifying children is subject to an additional tax.” [page 1]

    – – – – – – – – – –

    “If the government determines that the taxpayer’s unpaid tax liability results from willful behavior, the following penalties could apply…” [page 2]

    – – – – – – – – – –

    “Criminal penalties

    Prosecution is authorized under the Code for a variety of offenses. Depending on the level of the noncompliance, the following penalties could apply to an individual:

    • Section 7203 – misdemeanor willful failure to pay is punishable by a fine of up to $25,000 and/or imprisonment of up to one year.

    • Section 7201 – felony willful evasion is punishable by a fine of up to $250,000 and/or imprisonment of up to five years.” [page 3]

    When confronted with this same issue during its consideration of a similar individual mandate tax, the Senate Finance Committee worked on a bipartisan basis to include language in its bill that shielded Americans from civil and criminal penalties. The Pelosi bill, however, contains no similar language protecting American citizens from civil and criminal tax penalties that could include a $250,000 fine and five years in jail.

    “The Senate Finance Committee had the good sense to eliminate the extreme penalty of incarceration. Speaker Pelosi’s decision to leave in the jail time provision is a threat to every family who cannot afford the $15,000 premium her plan creates. Fortunately, Republicans have an alternative that will lower health insurance costs without raising taxes or cutting Medicare,” said Camp.

    According to the Congressional Budget Office the lowest cost family non-group plan under the Speaker’s bill would cost $15,000 in 2016.

    Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s Travel

    Ian Kelly
    Department Spokesman
    Washington, DC

    November 6, 2009

    ——————————————————————————–

    Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will travel to Europe and Asia November 8-19, 2009.

    In Berlin (November 8-9), she will represent the United States at the 20th Anniversary celebration of the fall of the Berlin Wall and meet with senior German officials.

    Secretary Clinton will continue on to Singapore (November 10-12) for meetings of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum. While there, she will attend the APEC Ministerial Meetings and will hold bilateral meetings with her counterparts from the region.

    In Manila (November 12-13), the Secretary will hold consultations with senior Filipino officials, highlighting the U.S.-Philippines treaty alliance.

    Returning to Singapore, the Secretary will join President Obama for the APEC Leaders Meeting.

  171. Upfront, I confess I’m sensitive to the issue of terrorists. Not only did I live near the WTC, it turns out I also passed the apartment of two of the terrorists every day on my way to work in Paterson, NJ, lived a mile from the shop where some of them bought their passports, 5 miles from the motel where Mohammed Atta lived for a year and just west was Caldwell Airport, where many of the hijackers took flight raining.
    Paterson is the most heavily Muslim populated areas on the east coast. I lived in Manhattan during the original 1993 WTC bombing attempt with the Blind Cleric and used to teach in Jersey City, just down the street from his mosque. So my antanae are tuned to terrorism and I believe the Fort Hood attack was exactly that.
    Here’s a blurb from a terrorism investigator.
    What do you think?

    “Born in Virginia, sent to medical school by the U.S. Army, the psychiatrist was chastised for proselytizing to his patients about Islam. Asked his nationality, he didn’t identify himself as an American but as a Palestinian. He appeared pleased by the shooting death of a Little Rock Army recruiter in June and reportedly was heard saying, ‘maybe people should strap bombs on themselves and go to Times Square.’ In the fateful moment before he opened fire on his unarmed victims, he shouted Allahu Akhbar!’” And our Mf***ing BM is spinning this as a tragedy for a guy suffering from pre-PTSD. Nothing about the 13 dead, their families, their communities, the military in general. Not even a visit by Squat. It is despicable. He can fly half way around the world to humiliate, insult and apologize for America but can’t spare an hour to comfort Americans.
    IMHO – this is Squat’s Katrina moment. And for him to say we shouldn’t jump to conclusions after seeing HIM do exactly that in the Gates case is beyond hypocritical. It is evil.

  172. They are having a discussion on Islam over on NQ and I found this interesting.
    ******************************
    This is from “Freedom’s Enemies” last year so the percentages are greater now. I believe in some of the Nordic countries, it has greatly increased. In the US, Muslims have begun to speak (through one of the “Czars”) about Sharia law being appropriate and Sharia financial system should be implemented for Muslims in the US. And we have a POTUS who has budgeted $200m for Hamas immigrants to be brought to the US.

    Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system.

    Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components. The religious component is a beard for all the other components.

    Islamization occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called “religious rights.”

    When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to “the reasonable” Muslim demands for their “religious rights,” they also get the other components under the table.

    Here’s how it works (percentages source CIA: The World Fact Book (2007)).

    As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:

    United States — Muslim 1.0%
    Australia — Muslim 1.5%
    Canada — Muslim 1.9%
    China — Muslim 1%-2%
    Italy — Muslim 1.5%
    Norway — Muslim 1.8%

    At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:

    Denmark — Muslim 2%
    Germany — Muslim 3.7%
    United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%
    Spain — Muslim 4%
    Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

    From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.

    They will push for the introduction of halaal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. (United States).

    France — Muslim 8% Actually, now up to about 11% since this was published.
    Philippines — Muslim 5%
    Sweden — Muslim 5%
    Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
    The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
    Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

    At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

    When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions (Paris — car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam — Mohammed cartoons).

    Guyana — Muslim 10%
    India — Muslim 13.4%
    Israel — Muslim 16%
    Kenya — Muslim 10%
    Russia — Muslim 10-15%

    After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:

    Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

    At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:

    Bosnia — Muslim 40%
    Chad — Muslim 53.1%
    Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

    From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:

    Albania — Muslim 70%
    Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
    Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
    Sudan — Muslim 70%

    After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:

    Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
    Egypt — Muslim 90%
    Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
    Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%
    Iran — Muslim 98%
    Iraq — Muslim 97%
    Jordan — Muslim 92%
    Morocco — Muslim 98.7%
    Pakistan — Muslim 97%
    Palestine — Muslim 99%
    Syria — Muslim 90%
    Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
    Turkey — Muslim 99.8%
    United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

    100% will usher in the peace of “Dar-es-Salaam” — the Islamic House of Peace — there’s supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:

    Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
    Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
    Somalia — Muslim 100%
    Yemen — Muslim 99.9%

    It is good to remember that in many, many countries, such as France, the Muslim populations are centered around ghettos based on their ethnicity. Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. Therefore, they exercise more power than their national average would indicate.

  173. Basil, Agreed! This was homegrown terrorism that is heavily invested in middle eastern terrorism. According to documentation over on the Obama file the man has never married because he could not find a woman that was devout enough, inotherwards he hated women. The terrorists are turning over in the graves with the fact it was a western woman who took this idiot down. I wonder how that will be taken by the people who will call him a martyr.

    Democratic leaders trying to preserve a high-stakes Saturday vote on a House health reform bill battled a swift current of rank-and-file defections Friday as the White House swung into action to help corral the final votes.

    But progress was slower than expected – as a bad jobs number Friday with unemployment eclipsing 10 percent, and Tuesday’s election losses making that job harder.

    President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and a number of top aides – including chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Education Secretary Arne Duncan — called wavering members. But abortion and immigration remained stubborn obstacles to a final deal.

    Democratic officials said their count of hard “nos” was in the range of about 25. While House Speaker Nancy Pelosi can afford to lose up to 40 votes and still win passage, there are dozens of other lawmakers who remain on the fence publicly.

    In the last-minute frenzy, the landscape seemed to change from hour-to-hour. Majority Leader Steny Hoyer kicked off the day by suggesting the final vote may drift until Sunday afternoon – or even Monday or Tuesday – if they need more time to find the votes they need.

    3 qualities that could make Clinton memorable
    Fri, 11/06/2009 – 12:51pm

    In a recent Time magazine article, journalist Joe Klein lists three qualities that could make Clinton “a memorable Secretary of State”:

    1. “She brings a vision of departmental reform — the need to elevate foreign aid programs to the same status and rigorous scrutiny as diplomacy — that could change striped pants into chinos in the developing world.”

    2. She is also the first elected politician to hold the office since Edmund Muskie briefly did during the Carter Administration, which has enabled her to better understand and interact with the politicians who run places like Afghanistan and Pakistan.”

    3. “But most important, she is an international celebrity with a much higher profile than any of her recent predecessors and the ability — second only to the President’s — to change negative attitudes about the U.S. abroad.”

    And change negative attitudes she has. During her recent visit to Pakistan, she visited a Sufi mosque that been attacked by Sunni extremists. It made quite an impression on many moderate Pakistani Muslims, including one who told Klein, “We saw her praying there, and, for the first time, I’m thinking, ‘The Americans have hearts.'”

    Clinton also made herself available for students, talk-show hosts, and Pashtun elders, who asked her all sorts of difficult questions, and as Klein puts it, “her candor, her willingness to listen to and acknowledge criticism, had begun to undermine the prevailing Pakistani image of the U.S. as arrogant and bossy.” A government spokeswoman and member of Parliament told Klein:

    In the past, when the Americans came, they would talk to the generals and go home. … Clinton’s willingness to meet with everyone, hostile or not, has made a big impression — and because she’s Hillary Clinton, with a real history of affinity for this country, it means so much more.”

    Although Klein offers constructive criticism for Clinton (saying that the controversy she sparked about settlements shows she needs “a few lessons in Middle East Haggling 101”), he does praise her as “the second most popular American in the world, an eternally compelling and supremely talented character, … a walking headline.”

    Klein writes that with her “three qualities,” Clinton could become a memorable secretary of state. But for her fans worldwide, she already has become one.
    ****************

    second most popular, BS, she and Bill are number uno

  185. Unspeakable acts of terror, torture, and mass murder are not so much the results of individuals who have lost their minds as they are of individuals who have lost their conscience. If, indeed, it turns out that the heinous suicide-attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon are traced to Osama Bin Laden, and his chief mentor, former psychiatrist Ayman al-Zawahiri, it would not be the first time psychiatrists had served as the manipulators behind charismatic, but essentially weak and flawed, human beings — systematically feeding their hatreds, stroking their egos, and stripping their consciences — until eventually even the most barbaric act may appear plausible and rational in the name of some twisted cause.”

  186. Jon Voight Speaks at DC Anti-ObamaCare Rally

    The Mighty Jon Voight took no prisoners on the steps of the Capitol today, hitting Obama with ACORN, “corrupt” White House Czars, ObamaCare, Afghanistan and this memorable chestnut:

    “Could it be he has had 20 years of subconscious programming by Rev. Wright to damn America?”

    youtube.com/watch?v=Jar6dsean3E&feature=player_embedded

  187. I did not remember that Ayman Alzawahiri was also a psychiatrist, maybe Hasan was following in the footsteps of Alzawahiri like most of Obama’s czars do Chairman Mao.

    I bet Glenn Beck who is out with appendicitis is chomping at the bit to get back to work, lots of news right now he could capitalize on.

  188. In regards to the $1250/month premium for health care coverage under the Speaker’s plan — isn’t that more expensive than COBRA even?? I believe the national average COBRA premium for family coverage is $1,069.

    Ugh, somebody remind me again what the point of this legislation is?

  189. Ugh, somebody remind me again what the point of this legislation is?
    —————————————————————————

    To bail out the insurance and pharmaceutical companies?

  190. i read somewhere that the insurance companies got a sweet deal……. “immunity” if they deny coverage and the person dies.

  191. Somewhere in her excellent writings on leadership Professor Katherine Kelley Reardon talks about the decline of the great leader. She argues that organizations are so complex anymore that the notion of a hands on leader managing all points in the compass is a fiction. I think that applies to many leaders today but not all of them. Whether or not the leader has his or her hands in every aspect of the business is not the question for me. To me the far more important question is does the leader understand the business, does he or she pick good people, and is the leader accountable for results. On those criteria the score is Hillary 3–Obama 0. This has nothing to do with glad handling or shooting hoops, it is the core of what a leader does. As a management observer I cannot see him as a leader. But if Reardon is right and the leader is nothing more than a front man, then its like Cole Porter song Anything Goes. But in that case God help us.

  192. It is around 3am here and it made me think of that call Obama will get. It is pretty clear to me that when it comes, he will blow it and his spin doctors will swear he handled it brilliantly. Not to be too repetitive but God help us, and good night.

    Look, a sign these anti-Gore hit pieces are dishonest, is their talking about his electrical use “as a private citizen.” He is only a private citizen in the sense of not being a government official. They might as well say the same thing of Bill Clinton, and complain about the electric bill at the Clinton’s’ Chautauqua house.

    Both Gore and Bill are running big organizations doing many big things, even if they are doing some of it from their own big homes; that’s why they NEED big homes. What it means is that they’re working 24/7, they’re giving up much of their privacy for this good work.
    *****************************

    Jesus, that is an argument i would expect from an elitist. I need my big home because i do so many great things so i need to spend $30,000 on electricity a month and I am too important to take a common carrier jet, I need my private and very non Eco friendly fuel eat um up transportation

    ————————-

    Do you apply that to Bill Clinton too? To Hillary? Have you compared any actual figures for the size of their home and their private plane mileage, to Gore’s? Are you going to apply it to Palin now that she is free to travel (lately to Hong Kong)?

    Gore’s work IS very important — perhaps more important than most of Bill and Hillary’s. He is preventing permanent damage to the planet.

    (This is assuming that Gore does fly a lot on private planes; your source may have been making that up, as RightWingNuts often do make up things about the Clinton camp.

  194. Good to see you back in action and spicing up the agenda here on big pink,Your piece on the messiahs roots intentions and his soros ringmaster is a true work of a art as it paints a picture of the state of our union.We must continue to cover Hillary and every word she speaks as she clears her path to the oval office that she won and was savaged by the dnc and the now almost foundering and defunct media. Fox is turning up the criticism of every word she utters.Bet they will marginalize her dedication of the ss New York this morning.I am convinced she is running again based on my close study of the words and subjects that she covers every day as she does her job 24/7.SHe WILL BE our 45th President

  196. Pro-Israeli Canadian lawyer ejected from UN

    Steven Edwards
    Friday, November 06, 2009

    Anne Bayefsky, a Canadian law professor, was ejected from the United Nations earlier this week.

    UNITED NATIONS — Guards ejected an accredited Canadian commentator from the United Nations after she denounced a controversial report that focuses heavily on alleged Israeli war crimes.

    Anne Bayefsky, a York University political science professor, offered the only pro-Israel commentary on Thursday night at a microphone outside the General Assembly hall following remarks by its Libyan president, Ali Treki, and the chief Palestinian official at the United Nations, Riyad Mansour.

    Arab and Muslim countries had overcome Western opposition in the adoption of a resolution endorsing the report by South African Judge Richard Goldstone, which focuses on the Israeli assault last winter on Gaza.

    Ms. Bayefsky said four guards confiscated two UN passes the organization had issued to her as director of Touro Law Center’s Institute on Human Rights and The Holocaust, and removed her from the building after questioning her.

    “I am quite sure that if I had congratulated the United Nations, no one would have said anything,” said Ms. Bayefsky, who was unable to get her credentials reinstated after spending more than two hours drafting a request at the UN last night.

    UN-based blogger Matt Lee said Mr. Mansour, after being told a “pro-Israel non-governmental organization” had spoken at the microphone, asked: “Did we capture them?” Mr. Lee said he spoke with Mr. Mansour after the guards had led Ms. Bayefsky away, and security officials were unable to confirm last night whether they had acted of their own accord, or in response to a complaint.

    Mr. Treki’s spokesman, Jean Victor Nkolo, said Ms. Bayefsky was “not authorized at all” to use the mike. “This is a stakeout for member states and for the General Assembly,” he said. “NGOs and private individuals have nothing to do there. Period.”

    Mr. Nkolo dismissed suggestions Ms. Bayefsky would have felt free to approach the microphone on grounds that other similarly accredited organizations have done so in the past.

    Human Rights Watch’s Steve Crawshaw spoke there in 2007 as he complimented the assembly on a widely cheered human rights decision, Mr. Lee’s innercitypress.com Website notes. Actress Mia Farrow, an activist against Sudanese actions in Darfur, also spoke at a microphone generally used by diplomats, addressing reporters outside the UN Security Council this year.

    Ms. Bayesfky herself had previously spoken at the microphone following the UN’s Human Rights council elections, without incident.

    The drama unfolded less than two weeks after UN guards faced criticism for allowing a man disguised as Kentucky Fried Chicken founder Harland “Colonel” Sanders to enter the complex and pose for publicity pictures.

    Ms. Bayefsky had offered her assessment of the resolution, which gives both Israel and the Palestinians three months to launch “independent credible investigations” into alleged war crimes outlined in the Goldstone report. Part of her focus was on Hamas, which controls Gaza, but which most western countries list as a terrorist organization. “The idea that … a terrorist organization is going to decide for itself whether or not it violates the rule of law is something that, I think, no serious democratic society will take seriously,” she said.

    “You just have to ask yourselves whether this process has done anything in terms of bolstering the credibility of the United Nations.”

    Little more than half of the assembly’s 192 members approved the resolution, which passed 114 in favour, 18 against (including Canada), with 44 abstentions.

    Hopson jumps parties, switches to Republican

    JACKSONVILLE — Saying that President Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress do not reflect the concerns and conservative values of his district, State Rep. Chuck Hopson announced Friday that he has formally resigned from the Democratic Party and will join the Republican Party.

    Hopson said he will hold a press conference in his home town of Jacksonville next week and will be joined by local, state and national Republican leaders including U.S. Senator John Cornyn, Texas House Speaker Joe Straus, Texas Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples and East Texas Republican officials. Details for the press conference will be announced later.

    Hopson’s district includes Cherokee, Houston, Panola and Rusk counties and he has held the District 11 seat since 2001.

    “Chuck is an outstanding public servant who fights hard for his East Texas constituents,” Straus said. “The Republican Party warmly welcomes Chuck because of his integrity and commitment to conservative values.”

    Hopson, a pharmacist, said he felt it was important to announce his decision immediately in fairness to the Texas Democratic Party in order to allow them time to select a nominee for the 2010 election. “I believe in democracy and respect its process. I will be running as a Republican in 2010 and will campaign hard to win the Republican primary and general elections,” Hopson said.

    Hopson said he agrees strongly with the Republican Party on issues of family values, illegal immigration reform, gun rights, property owner rights and the death penalty.

    Boyd Richie, Texas Democratic Party chairman, said he was disappointed in Hopson’s decision to change parties. “While I am extremely disappointed with Chuck Hopson, I remain confident the Texas House of Representatives will have a Democratic Speaker of the House next Legislative session. Democrats continue to make inroads across the Lone Star State and will continue to put the best interests of Texans ahead of the special interests Republicans continue to represent.

    “Make no mistake… as a rural Democratic elected official who served in rural Texas, I can tell you that if, in fact, Chuck Hopson makes this announcement (Friday) afternoon, he will be joining a party that has abandoned rural Texas.”

    Boyd said Hopson “will be joining the party of the special interests – the party that has given us the highest homeowners insurance rates in the country, that has increased our health insurance premiums beyond repair, and let the special interest lobbyists rule our State Capitol.”

    In the 2008 general election, Hopson noted that more than 71 percent of the voters in Texas House District 11 supported both John McCain for president and Cornyn’s reelection.

  198. Let’s try this again, even though it’s on this thread. The link comes from biggovernment, I just followed the link to the letter and did the math. I like to think that we at big pink are not in the habit of spreading disinformation, leave that to the “other guys”…It’s actually around $450.00 per mo. for a family in the 50,000 dollar range. That’s not insignificant, but it is 1/3 of the total being quoted.

    that amounts to insurance monthly premiums of $1250.00 PER MONTH per family!!

    WHO THE HELL CAN AFFORD THAT??

    nobody, but that’s not the deal
    The unsubsidized total would be a median of $102.000,
    It would be about 11% of annual income for a family in the $50,000 range, or $5,500 or around 450 dollars per month…

  199. From NO QUARTER John Batchelor November 7

    NO CONCLUSIONS

    POTUS emerged gloomily to warn not to jump to conclusions about Ft. Hood following his afternoon off the record luncheon with the Washington elite journalists, CNN David Gergen, Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza, Newsweek’s John Meacham and Howard Fineman, Atlanta Journal Constitution’s Cynthia Tucker, POLITICO’S Mike Allen, NPR/FOX’s Mara Liasson, Talking Points Memo’s Josh Marshall, and New York Times trio David Brooks, Andy Rosenthal, and Gail Collins.

    What’s the worst that can happen when POTUS meets with opionion makers?

    No conclusions about Ft Hood’s mass murder by a Virginia born 39 yer old Army Major whose parents emigrated from a Palestinian village near Jerusalem, and whose brother lives in Jerusalem, who is said to have shouted about “Allah” before he murdered his comrades?

    Also no conclusion about why David Axelrod, Anita Dunn, Bill Burton and Robert Gibbs also attended the journalism luncheon….

  200. ABM90, Agreed! Here lately that is all that Fox is doing. I’ve quit watching them. They used to be the voice of reason, but in the last few weeks they have gone off the rocker and so far right that they are now again The unfair and unbalanced news network of the late 90’s and early 00’s.
    What has happened that they are huffing and puffing about Hillary every day?? The only person in the whole administration that is TRULY trying to help the situation in the world. I just wish she was the one over the jobs and the economy cause we certainly wouldn’t be where we are today.

  201. POTUS emerged gloomily to warn not to jump to conclusions about Ft. Hood following his afternoon off the record luncheon with the Washington elite journalists, CNN David Gergen, Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza, Newsweek’s John Meacham and Howard Fineman, Atlanta Journal Constitution’s Cynthia Tucker, POLITICO’S Mike Allen, NPR/FOX’s Mara Liasson, Talking Points Memo’s Josh Marshall, and New York Times trio David Brooks, Andy Rosenthal, and Gail Collins.

    This is the nucleus of his amen corner. Propagandists.

  202. wbboei@5:20am, Now that a scary thought in some ways, that the leader is just the front man and that the handlers are the ones who run the govt. In this case its Zbig handling the geo-political and Soros handling the funds to overthrown and select new govt. In otherwards two demons in charge of world governments with Hillary running around the globe trying to patch things up they screw up.
    OBAMA IS PLAYING BASKETBALL WAITING TO BE AWARDED THE NEXT PRIZE. His speech writer writing his acceptance speech, Jarret and Rahm keeping him a bubble so he can stay in his narcissistic zone all the time.
    This is the new govt. of the people!

  203. Cillezza is a case of arrested development. Remember that video he and the other mental adolescent Milbank did on Hillary. I cannot look at him anymore without feeling a sense of revulsion. It would be worse if I knew him or Milbank personally. What a pair of magpies.

  204. $450.00 monthly is not bad, but most people aren’t going to be able to afford that because that means people who are making 40,000. yrly were maybe paying 300.monthly out of their checks, so that means they would have to come up with the other 150. This isn’t even dental added. It will be hard for most people and the insurance industry (which I believe is nothing more than legal robbery) is gleeful at the thought.

  205. Connie–it is tough to cut your way through the serial lies of this administration, starting with a man who asks us to trust him and then spends $2 million dollars to hide his birth certificate. Trust me it aint the birthers who are delusional. But if you go down the list you find people like Dennis Ross who are trustworthy. According to Tapper whose bona fides are suspect to me at least based on the crude thing he said about Hillary, even though Z campaigned for O he is not an advisor at this point according to Ross. If that is what Ross actually said then I think we have to accept it as true, because he is both knowlegable and credible. The thing you need to consider however is his relationship to Soros, and he can have influence through that portal. I would encourage anyone who wants to unravel other aspects of this mystery to study Dr. Z.

  206. This is the new govt. of the people!

  207. The realist;

    That $15G quote is, as I understand it, an estimate of the cost by 2016.

    “According to the Congressional Budget Office the lowest cost family non-group plan under the Speaker’s bill would cost $15,000 in 2016.”

    Again, it’s a short letter and an easy-to-read chart with a sliding scale.
    family of 4
    30,000= 4% of income appox.$1100.00 or $90 per month
    40,000= 7% $3100.00 $250.00
    50,000= 11% $6200.00 $500.00
    60,000= 15% $10000.00 $830.00

    The rates are based on % of the poverty level. I favor “medicare for all”, or single payer myself, but less than 100.00 per month for health insurance for a family of 4 seems reasonable to me. That isn’t a comment on the plan itself (I haven’t read all 10,000 pages lol) just the amounts that are stated in the letter from biggovernmnet.
    it’s right here;

    Just follow the link and read the chart. I am quoting the 2016 numbers, from the letter itself. see above.

  210. Can someone explain (generally) the pros and cons of the health care plan being voted on today? I’m sure parts of it will benefit many families but aspects like being penalized or jail for not having coverage disturb me.

  211. Almost universal coverage for all americans, no exclusions for pre-existing conditions, affordable premiums.

    Threats of jail time are provisions in the TAX CODE, not the bill. IRS doesn’t like to try criminal prosecution for non-payment of taxes (I sadly know this from personal experience) but seek civil penalties first. The letter quoted in biggovernment spells out the penalties, civil and criminal.

    http://republicans.waysandmeans.house.gov/UploadedFiles/JCTletter110509.pdf

    less than 100 convictions were for willful failure to pay or file taxes. It is very hard to prove..

    There is disinformation and scare tactics on both sides of this issue and I don’t claim to have all the info, but much of what people seem to be worried about is accessible to the individual without the filter or some pundit or opinion website.
