Apparently. TARP Is Not Enough

FILE: Neil Barofsky, special inspector general for the Trouble Asset Relief Program (TARP) (AP).

And apparently, it is not enough by a long shot.

Watchdog: Bank Bailouts Created More Risk in System

Once again there come the reports from those who ought to know. And they are saying that all the hocus pocus that our POTUS has put on the table since his inauguration? Simply isn't true and it isn't working.

And in another report today?

Roubini Calls U.S. Growth ‘Dismal and Poor,’ Predicts Slowing

Roubini says that he believes that we are in trouble.

“The headline number will look large and big, but actually when you dissect it, it’s very dismal and poor,” Roubini told Bloomberg Television in an interview at the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland. “I think we are in trouble.”

So.....who to believe. Those who predicted the recession and the collapse of the sub prime mortgage industry and the continued failure of banks? And the fact that we can't borrow and spend our way out of depression? Or a no longer so populist president who's only plan seems to be to continue to shake the curtains and pump smoke while uttering "the great Oz has spoken!"

And what does Mr. Barofsky have to say when he reads the tea leaves of our economic indicators?

The problems that led to the last financial crisis have not yet been addressed, and in some cases have grown worse, says Neil Barofsky, the special inspector general for the trouble asset relief program, or TARP. The quarterly report to Congress was released Sunday.

A few simple deductions are in order IMO. The first being that the economic "climate" in America is not improving. Scratch has not improved and all the glowing numbers that Geitner and Volcker are putting out are nothing more than the meringue covering over the fetid reality that America's apple pie is rotting.

It's actually no big secret to those who care to look at the facts and read and listen to what those in the know and outside of the Obama Washington beltway have said about it. While the pied piper of change and the latest new deal of progressive socialism was giving us his vision in the state of the union last Wednesday night, the reality that our future collapse is bearing down on us like a runaway locomotive continued toward us like a Juggernaut.

We are continuing to bleed two million jobs a month with no end in sight and foreclosures and bank failures are maintaining a steady pace.

And today? Our dear president has supposedly identified 20 billion dollars in budget cuts and savings that he intends to cut from his proposed 3.8 trillion dollar budget for the coming year.

So let's see now, what does all that actually represent. 20 out of 3800 Billion? Or looked at another way? This is what many in Obama's former Chicago machine digs would call chump change. But true to form, just pitch some seeming red meat on the table and watch the Pavlovian dogs of progressive liberalism and their dumb mass followers feast on that for a while. Never seeing the jackals that are approaching them and licking their chops at the thought of feasting on the great beast of capitalism about to fall.

Meanwhile, others are watching and taking note. Our enemies as simply watching as the great beast is bled, before theyy make their moves.

Where Are All The Baby Boomers?

1943 to 1960

That was the time frame of the greatest increase in American birth rate in history. And two years ago, the lead elements of that generation began to qualify for social security.

And according to the latest reports? As each year passes over the next five years, the waves of baby boomer eligible for social security will grow exponentially.

The only problem is? We don't have anything left in the system to prop up or support the sudden increase in benefits that are coming due the numbers of baby boomers who will be reaching qualification age. It is not bad enough that those elected and entrusted, have been borrowing against the social security fund and robbing it blind since the late 1960's. Or that our government has hocked our future to infinity in it's attempts to pay for social security and a myriad of entitlement programs.

The real bad news is that aside from the reality of shortfall in the fund, there are no new numbers of people being born to fill in and contribute to the fund as it dies daily through attrition of contribution. And there haven't been born for years now, the numbers needed to keep it afloat.

Prior to WWII, there was the greatest generation. After WWII, there were the Baby Boomers. We had it all. From rock and roll and Elvis to birth control and the Rolling Stones. And now? There are ipods and ipads and cell phones and Blackberrys and big screen plasmas and you name it.

The only problem is, that as our nation's expenditures and debts have grown? Our population has continued to decline. Along with our jobs and manufacturing capability and our leadership stature in the world. Which means that our ability to pay for it has been slowing waning away.

And now? There is no new baby boomer generation to take up the slack, much less to maintain any equilibrium. We saw to that with Roe vs. Wade. There are an endless myriad of arguments pro and con concerning abortion in America, but one argument that you never hear made, is the effect on the nation that abortion has had. The affect to our work force, the affect to our heritage, the affect to our production capabilities and so on. And yes, the affect on social security.

Who will be paying for these programs like social security that we as a group (baby boomers) have paid into all our life. Who pays our benefits after everything that we ever contributed to has been squandered and wasted. There is nothing left for us now and there is nothing in the pipe behind us, since we saw fit to allow the killing of twenty million people. Those people would for the most part be contributing citizens today. Working and paying taxes and contributing to social security and expanding our economic base. But they aren't. They were never born. More specifically? They were killed off.

Perhaps in a perfect world their potential contributions would have been the present reality. But we gave up on our aspirations to live in a better world of peace and prosperity of life long ago. We as a nation opted to chase after Nirvana and the promises of a very real yet purposely obscured socialist agenda.

And now that we have reached that point in our lives when we should be reaping the benefits of our labors? Those benefits have taken from us. What we were able to create in wealth for our retirement years, has been decimated via the foot loose playing of the capitalist system. A system that these interloping egalitarians and socialists were hell bent on destroying. While they systematically killed off the social security program, one cut and one slice at at time? They were also killing off the life blood of production and prosperity for future generations in this country.

These killers abandoned the premise that all men are created equal and opted for a scheme of trying to make all mean equal. And in doing so, they lost track of the words in the preamble.

They failed to "promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity."

So here we are. As a group, now washing up on the flotsam tossed shore of our retirement years, as we watch our floundering republic and our dying economy. And there is nothing there on that shore for us now. All that we saved and worked for and paid into has been either lost, destroyed or pissed away. And the manna that was promised is as elusive as it always has been.

We have gone from that shining city on a hill, to being the new ghetto of the coming age of new world order. And I'll bet you never even thought about the loss of that baby boomer generation that was purposely lost.

You never thought about it until now.

Pelosi Boorish? Say It Isn't So!

The arrogance of this woman and of this administration go beyond the pale IMO. I sincerely hope the American people remember these people and their Vichy lifestyles when the big crash comes.

These cake eaters need to be held accountable.

Taxpayers pay $101,000 for Pelosi's in-flight 'food, booze'

It reads like a dream order for a wild frat party: Maker's Mark whiskey, Courvoisier cognac, Johnny Walker Red scotch, Grey Goose vodka, E&J brandy, Bailey's Irish Crème, Bacardi Light rum, Jim Beam whiskey, Beefeater gin, Dewars scotch, Bombay Sapphire gin, Jack Daniels whiskey … and Corona beer.

But that single receipt makes up just part of the more than $101,000 taxpayers paid for "in-flight services" – including food and liquor, for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's trips on Air Force jets over the last two years. That's almost $1,000 per week.

Fed up with the condescending clowns in Congress? Send them a "pink slip!"

Documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by Judicial Watch, which investigates and prosecutes government corruption, show Pelosi incurred expenses of some $2.1 million for her use of Air Force jets for travel over that time.

"Speaker Pelosi has a history of wasting taxpayer funds with her boorish demands for military travel," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said today. "And these documents suggest the Speaker's congressional delegations are more about partying than anything else."

Pelosi, D-Calif., recently joined President Obama on a Judicial Watch list of Top 10 corrupt politicians because of her "sense of entitlement," the group said.

"Politicians believe laws and rules (even the U.S. Constitution) apply to the rest of us but not to them. Case in point: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her excessive and boorish demands for military travel. Judicial Watch obtained documents from the Pentagon in 2008 that suggest Pelosi has been treating the Air Force like her own personal airline," the evaluation said.

The Cost of Winning in Afghanistan

U.K. Proposes $500M to Woo Taliban Off Battlefield, Into Jobs

Apparently? Winning a war and ending a conflict is only a matter of money in the UK. The Brits have seemingly devised the ultimate in devious plans to resolve the war in Afghanistan via capital reassignment. Why fight a war? When you can simply buy off your enemy. Devilishly brilliant lads!

Bravo Mr. Brown.........Bravo!

Downing Street confirmed that Britain will make a contribution of a “few million.” Germany has agreed to $70 million over five years and the bulk of the money will come from the Japanese aid budget to Afghanistan, diplomats suggested.

Just curious, but I wonder how this will affect our relationship with Somali and Sudanese Pirates? Or the North Koreans? Or Hugo Chavez? Or our little buddy in Iran? It's only right that they will come calling for their "fair share." Right?

Seems to me? As if Gordy Brown has devised a new and completely original means to stimulate the economies of despots and dictatorships globally. What a wonderful idea Gordon, now how do you propose to pay for it.

State of The Union? Simply Not True

Justice Alito's thoughts could probably best sum up the entire state of the union address last night IMO.

Watch CBS News Videos Online

Justice Mouths 'Not True' as Obama Slams Court

Well I must say that I wasn't shocked by anything in the speech last night, but I was surprised by a couple of things. I figured that he would basically return to the blame game and continue to accuse the Bush administration for the majority of what he has failed to address or accomplish in his first year in office. Which is precisely what he did.

I assumed that he would take the position that he had accomplished a lot and that the American people had just failed to this point to recognize his accomplishments as it concerned the American Reinvestment Act act. And I was right about that.

I assumed that he would basically stare straight into the face of America and tell the American people that he was intent on continuing to pursue his agenda, regardless of what the people thought about it and regardless what they had to say about it. And I was right.

What I didn't anticipate was his lashing of the Supreme Court Justices seated immediately in front of him last night. Nor did I anticipate him to openly call for their legislative rebuke before congress while making his address to congress and the people.

Of course, I didn't anticipate his direct attack on congress either.

Now, even after paying for what we spent on my watch, we'll still face the massive deficit we had when I took office. More importantly, the cost of Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security will continue to skyrocket. That's why I've called for a bipartisan fiscal commission, modeled on a proposal by Republican Judd Gregg and Democrat Kent Conrad. (Applause.) This can't be one of those Washington gimmicks that lets us pretend we solved a problem. The commission will have to provide a specific set of solutions by a certain deadline.

Now, yesterday, the Senate blocked a bill that would have created this commission. So I'll issue an executive order that will allow us to go forward, because I refuse to pass this problem on to another generation of Americans. (Applause.) And when the vote comes tomorrow, the Senate should restore the pay-as-you-go law that was a big reason for why we had record surpluses in the 1990s. (Applause.)

That seems pretty clear to me. We have gone from having a legislative and judicial process in this country and three branches of government: and we now have a president who feels that he is not only omnipresent of knowledge and what's best for this country, but we now have a president prepared to circumvent and nullify both the Supreme Court and the US Congress. The executive branch intends to literally rule supreme cased upon this president's demonstrations of the past year and in his recap of his performance last night.

And he intends to do it by either directing legislation specifically designed to thwart unsatisfactory Supreme Court decisions, or he intends to do it by executive caveat and whim, via executive order.

And the man is quite comfortable in telly the American people precisely that during last night's state of the union address. America is standing perilously close to a dictatorial form of government based upon what was presented to the people last night.

How long before this son of socialism steps forward and declares himself president for life..

Houston? We Have a Problem

President Obama is reportedly going to flatline NASA's budget when he releases his annual spending plan Monday

Perhaps that is a bit cliched? But the reality is ominous. Not that I have been a big fan of NASA over the past thirty years. Personally, I think that they lost the plot a long time ago. About the same time that the agency decided that it needed to embrace the Russian program as if it were their own. Little did they know that forty years later, that is eactly what a sitting American president would direct them to do.

Glasnost and such considered, I don't believe that the American people have gotten anything out of the relationship with the Russians over that period of time, aside from being stuck with the tab. Therefore, the demise of NASA funding is not something that I will mourn greatly, but to watch the agency be dealt it's death blow by an avowed socialist? Under the auspices of being part of this president's idea of discretionary spending?


Then to issue the agency the charge to re-focus what is left of their gutted agency and aim their effort solely at "terrestrial" exploration of global warming issues? IMO, that is the ultimate example of adding insult to injury.

The next thing on Obama's chopping block will be the military.

PS. Note the continued messianic icon imagery being used by the media, as evidenced in the photo above that accompanied the linked story.

What Our Future Holds

Barack Obama gets worse than an F in my opinion. And any fool can see why. The man is wide eyed leading the blind in this country into oblivion and destruction. And those behind him are the one's truly to blame. Those that engaged in the wailing and gnashing of teeth for the last nine years over their hatred of this country and it's defense of itself.

One thing Jerremiah Wright did have right....the chickens are coming home to roost. and those like himself and his student Obama are the ones responsible for it.

Former WMD Chief: Al-Qaida Awaiting Nukes

Reading this report should scare hell out of any sane and rational thinking American. For what is outlined and described by this report, only serves to demonstrate the reality of just how much danger is facing this nation.

“Considering the potential that such weapons hold in fulfilling al-Qaida’s aspirations,” it says, “their WMD procurement efforts have been managed at the most senior levels, under rules of strict compartmentalization from lower levels of the organization, and with central control over possible targets and timing of prospective attacks.”

That's right, while our president has fiddled and pursued his progressive socialist agenda, our enemies have utilized the time to continue toward their ultimate goal. And that goal is to create an image of nuclear holocaust in America.

That kind of planning suggests extreme sophistication and patience – a willingness to wait until such an operation against the U.S. could be sure to work. According to Mowatt-Larssen, “their approach has been ‘Mohamed Atta-like’ — similar to the modus operandi Khaled Sheikh Mohammed employed in making preparations for the 9/11 attacks — as opposed to resembling the signature characterizing most terrorist attacks to which the world has become accustomed.”

Is anyone in Washington listening? Leon Panetta (CIA)? Admiral Mullen? (CJCOS) Eric Holder (Atty. Gen)? Janet Napolitano (Homeland Sec.)?

No, I don't think any of them are listening. Certainly not Holder or Napolitano. And Mullin and Panetta are simply figureheads. And make no mistake, our dear president isn't paying any attention or focused on the threat either. Tonight's state of the union speech will reveal that fact and many more IMO.

Meanwhile, Bin Ladin and his crew of Islamic fascists and radicalized Muslims continue forward with their plans to destroy this country.

He noted that “Al-Qaida’s patient, decade-long effort to steal or construct an improvised nuclear device (IND) flows from their perception of the benefits of producing the image of a mushroom cloud rising over a U.S. city, just as the 9/11 attacks have altered the course of history.”

He adds that “there is no evidence that the al-Qaida leadership regarded the use of crude toxins and poisons as being suitable for conducting what would amount to pin prick attacks on the United States; on the contrary,” it seems that “a relatively easy attack utilizing tactical weapons would not achieve the goals the al-Qaida leadership had set for themselves.”

September 11th was only the beginning. There is far worse looming in our future and anyone capable of seeing the evidence and the reality knows it. It is only a matter of time

You're so vain, you probably think this speech is about you

Carly Simon couldn't have sung it better.

The Hatchet Man, Speaks With Forked Tongue

There Are No WMD

There are no WMD. There never were any WMD.

How many times did I see those sentiments over the past eight years. And now this?

Obama Gets 'F' on Stopping Spread of Weapons of Mass Destruction

How can the poor man be held accountable for not preventing something that never existed. I mean....aside from our own arsenals? Who really has WMD anyway.

Can anyone prove it? Hell no they can't. So there you have it. There are no WMD, therefore, our messiah can't be held accountable for not preparing for something that doesn't exist.

Read on....

In a 19-page report card being published Tuesday, the bipartisan Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction, Proliferation and Terrorism gives the Obama administration an "F" for failing to take key steps the commission outlined just over a year ago in its initial report.

A bipartisan, independent commission on stopping the spread of weapons of mass destruction says that the Obama administration has failed in its first year in office to do enough to prevent a germ weapons attack on America or to respond quickly and effectively should such an attack occur.

In a 19-page report card being published Tuesday, the Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction, Proliferation and Terrorism, chaired by former Senators Bob Graham, a Democrat from Florida, and Jim Talent, a Missouri Republican, gives the new administration the grade of "F" for failing to take key steps the commission outlined just over a year ago in its initial report.

So there you have it folks. Much ado about nothing.

Bin Ladin's Distress?

There is something odd afoot IMO. On Friday the 22nd, the British government raised it's terrorist threat level to severe.

No explanation tendered. just simply raised it from substantial to severe. Which by virtue of vernacular is in my opinion a dramatic action.

Then on Saturday, the world receives it's latest epiphany form Osama Bin Ladin. Where he once again threatens and asserts his seeming approval and control over all things Al Qaida. And he of course accepts responsibility for the Christmas day bombing attempt in Detroit.

Now the odd part? Why has Matt Drudge been flying Bin Ladin's mug up side down as it's banner all day? Is there some subliminal message being sent? Or has Drudge been directed by other forces at play, to utilize his banner as a message to either Bin Ladin himself or the rest of the world.

Much was speculated over the weekend concerning Bin Ladin's tone and his use of similar words and phases in this latest communique. But little has been noted as it concerns a major global media outlet and it's decision to portray the most wanted terrorist on the planet, in a fashion that is surely going to cause speculation at the least.

Personally, I don't think that Bin Ladin is the only one sending coded messages in the open in the media.

Too Big To Fail

Uncertainty on Bernanke Vote Raises Economic Fears

Economists warn a defeat of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's quest for another four-year term could raise the risk of a "double dip" recession.

WASHINGTON -- A defeat of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's quest for another four-year term could raise the risk of a "double dip" recession if political jousting over a successor were to drag on for months, economists warn.

But Bernanke's prospects appeared to brighten Sunday, with three more senators, including Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, predicting he'll be confirmed. A vote is expected later this week.

Any of this sound familiar? And I wonder.....just who are these "economists" that are making this dire prediction. I'll bet that they are probably one in the same as those who somehow never saw the sub prime mortgage debacle collapsing the system.

And here is more.

Still, the chance of Bernanke's defeat has unsettled Wall Street, contributing to last week's 4 percent loss by the Dow Jones industrial average, its worst performance in 10 months. If Bernanke were rejected, uncertainty over a successor would further roil global markets, at least in the short run.

Anxiety, along with sagging investments, could cause consumers and businesses to cut spending. Joblessness, already at 10 percent, could worsen. And the recovery might fail.

Economists who fear a double-dip recession -- in which the recovery would collapse into another recession -- regard it as a worst-case scenario. But they don't rule it out, either.

The fear of Bernake's defeat unsettled Wall Street? WTF? Wall Street was doing just fine until Obama spoke up last week and said that he intends to chain American banks to the ground, while his socialist counterparts in Europe applauded his decision, but quickly added that they didn't intend to follow suit.

And somehow or another? This report and others in media seem to have completely missed that little piece of trivia and they are attributing Bernake's weakness to his unsettling record while at the Fed?

Sounds suspiciously like something I have heard before. Someone seems to think that Bernake is too big to fail. Somehow his tenure as Fed chairman must be preserved.

I for one believe that last week was a wake up call for both Bernake and Geitner. They were both targeted by this White House, as the president's handlers scrambled to address the Obama defeat in Massachusetts. And they are attempting to re-tool the president's image with the public. But they are doing it via a ruse. Axelrod and Emanuel may very well throw Geitner under the bus, but they have no intention of doing the same to Bernake. They merely want him to seem and feel threatened, while they proceed to line up their new man Volcher for the second take over of the US treasury. Geitner simply becomes the fall guy for this round by default.

And they are doing this by focusing the people's attention in a different direction, while the mass media happily dances to their tune. Suddenly the president has seemed to discover and take note of the fact that we have a problem with the economy and the continued loss of jobs in this country. I am glad that he spotted it, as those two things had apparently gone unnoticed by most Americans and completely took us by surprise until Scott Brown won the Kennedy senate seat in Massachusetts last week.

I hope that America is awake and wises up to this latest version of the progressive liberal socialist two step. These is nothing new here folks, just the same two ploys that these socialist have used repeatedly for the past year.

First, create a crisis, then exploit that crisis. Second defend your decisions by applying the forced perspective that some things are just too big to be let go to failure. Expect to see that same logic appear again over the next year and expect it be re-applied every time any socialist give away program is brought to the fore front and discussed as a potential failure.

Obama has had his ass handed to him by the people of Massachusetts and as a result, this administration has been forced to admit what is lurking for them come November. The only questions that need to be resolved in their minds are these.

Can we possibly salvage our socialist health care plan right now? And can we continue to operate our agenda via the use of a complicit media that lays down a smoke screen for what we are actually doing?

Obama brought Volcker to the forefront last week to serve two purposes. First to give the impression that he is focused on the main issue of concern to the American people. And that issue is the economy and jobs. Never mind hat he has in essence ignored those two items for his entire first year in office, while he pursued his socialist agenda (health care reform).

That was then, this is now and Barry wants America to know that he his back on the job now. So he trots out Volcker to be the conspicuous cardboard cutout behind the president while he makes his announcement of his latest intentions concerning American banks.

This ploy serves to put both the banks and the people on notice. First by threatening the banks, Obama (his handlers) knows that he (they) can create another straw man crisis. And as obvious by the immediate reaction on Wall Street to the announcement, the first part of the ploy has worked wonderfully.

Secondly, he knows that by threatening Bernake's tenure at the Fed, the banks and their people will rush in to prop up and support the re-nomination of the faltering Fed chairman, as the banks see Bernake as the only friend that they really have now in government. Therefore, having Bernake on their side, it will be far more acceptable to them when the president follows through on his desire to chain, strip of all independent power and control, all aspects of the banking system in America.

And to think.....there are Americans that believe that the creation of the Fed was the real tragedy of government that was allowed to stand and has caused what we see today. Wait until these folks get a grasp of what Obama is about to put forth as the socialist 'coup de grâce' of this millennium.

The capitalist goose is ripe for the plucking ladies and gentlemen and as his best advisers (controllers) have previously noted, never allow a good crisis to go to waste. The part that they didn't mention at the times was that they intend to create those crisis' every time they feel that their progressive (new party) agenda is threatened.

And for a brief moment last week, Scott Brown threatened their agenda.

Obama endorses deficit commission plan

Trying to win the votes of fiscal moderates, President Barack Obama formally endorsed legislation Saturday creating an independent commission with the power to force Congress to vote on major deficit reduction steps this year, after the November elections.

Really? Imagine that. Is that even legal or constitutional? Having spent his first year in office attempting to single handedly destroy capitalism in America and replace it with Socialism, the man has now seemingly come to his senses? (albeit a feint at best)

I don't think so.

And here I was thinking that Obama was the second coming, when now it appears that he is really King Belshazzar reincarnated. And all it took was the election of Scott Brown to snap him back to his senses.

I wonder if he was in the Lincoln bedroom by chance, when this epiphany first struck him. On second thought....I wonder if there is a fireplace in that bedroom. Some place for the 'disembodied fingers of a human hand to appear and write on the wall' for this interloper we call a president.

And is the election of Scott Brown in Massachusetts the harbinger of greater woes for the Obama kingdom? It certainly would seem so if you have been listening to and watching the retching going on inside the progressive socialist democrat party of late.

“The President is demonstrating exactly the kind of leadership we need to tackle our nation’s long-term fiscal challenges,” said Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad (D-N.D.), a lead sponsor of the legislation to create an independent deficit commission. “His support shows that he is determined to do what is necessary to put us back on a sound long-term course.”

Oh contraire dear senator. On the contrary....what is being demonstrated is that this president has finally been awakened from his drunken socialist stupor and seen the writing on the wall. I wonder....who will become his Daniel and interpret it for him. Obviously that person has yet to be summoned. Surely the great Madame Pelosi and Messer Reid are incapable of reading the omen of Massachusetts. As will the true sooth sayers Axelrod and Emauel

They too have been unnerved by the mysterious message that has appeared amongst the people. But rather than listen to the voices or seeking someone pure of heart to interpret the message, they have concocked a new scheme. Appear to give the people something they want. Appear to give them fiscal accountability, just don't do anything before the mid term elections. As it would be fair to hamstring and limit our dear socialist progressives as they spend the people's money in their vain attempts at reelection.

And even with his faux olive branches extended......
“These deficits did not happen overnight, and they won’t be solved overnight,” the president said. “We not only need to change how we pay for policies, but we also need to change how Washington works. The only way to solve our long-term fiscal challenge is to solve it together – Democrats and Republicans.”

The man still won't be able to sufficiently fool enough of the opposition to gain any consensus on floating his latest ruse on the people.

I am sorry mr president, but the writing on the wall is nothing new and it was deciphered thousands of years before your birth.
And this is the writing that was inscribed: MENE, MENE, TEKEL, and PARSIN. This is the interpretation of the matter: MENE, God has numbered the days of your kingdom and brought it to an end; TEKEL, you have been weighed on the scales and found wanting; PERES, your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians

A baited banker thus desponds,
From his own hand foresees his fall,
They have his soul, who have his bonds;
'Tis like the writing on the wall.

Arctic Ocean Getting Warm; Seals Vanish and Icebergs Melt.

It's confirmed, the sky is falling!

The Arctic ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consul Ifft, at Bergen, Norway.

Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers, he declared, all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone. Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met with as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm.

Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared. Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts, which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.

November 2nd, 1922. Arctic Ocean Getting Warm; Seals Vanish and Icebergs Melt.

Well there you have it friends. The news from 1922 told us way back then that this was happening...would happen....does happen....can happen and apparently reoccurs frequently.

The end is near! Not much left to do other than buy stock in sun tan lotion companies and jerky dehydration.

Oh! And don't forget to stock up on your penitence of carbon credits. We wouldn't want to perish in this crisis, without the proper level of guilt and contrition via a further waste of our money and resources.

A Bank Buster of the "New" Era

A lot of headlines yesterday were blaring that Barack Obama is the bank buster.

Obama hammers Wall Street banks

The Financial Times reported that he is "hammering" the banks with his proposed regulations and limitations on banking investments that he intends to see implemented by congress. (given the opportunity by the American people.)

The global banking industry was thrown into turmoil on Thursday after President Barack Obama , responding to public rage over the financial crisis, proposed the most far-reaching overhaul of Wall Street since the 1930s.

More specifically, he promised.....

Mr Obama promised that “never again will the American taxpayer be held hostage by a bank that is too big to fail”.

But once again, for those who pay attention to the details, it is evident that this plan to shackle the banks, is not something of Obama's own thought process or creation. It is just the latest example of how the man is being controlled by others in the background and how their plans for this nation are following a set political script of socialist corruption.


Flanked by Paul Volcker, the former Federal Reserve chairman, who has advocated the move for months, Mr Obama called for banks to be banned from running their own trading desks and “owning, investing in or sponsoring” hedge funds and private equity groups.

Paul Volcker seems to have the president's ear on the economy and his solutions for what is wrong and what he thinks needs fixing presently. Meanwhile, one of the original leading counselors to the president on saving the economy (Tim Geitner) is being prepared for his journey under the bus IMO.

Tim Geithner, the Treasury secretary, who has come under attack from Democrats on Capitol Hill, backed the plan, officials said, even though his own regulatory proposals have stopped well short of the sweeping Volcker reforms.

Going along to get along is about all that can be said for Geitner's response to the Volcker plan. Geitner has made statements that he doesn't agree with the Volcker proposals, but Geitner knows that there is blood in the water now and the loyalist in the (new) party are closing ranks around Obama over the people's restlessness concerning the economy. And they are looking for their scapegoat. Geitner was left to "fix it" while the president and his fellow socialist travelers, moved on to the bigger issue of their desire....seizing control of American health care and socializing it. And now that their scam has been revealed and the Brown election in Massachusetts has seriously damaged their hopes of obtaining that goal, they are quickly backtracking and attempting to draw attention away from that debacle, by re-focusing America's attention on the economy.

And those people in the background (those who are the ones really driving the Obama bus) like David Axelrod and Rahm Emanuel, are the one's really calling the shots and determining what tunes their puppet Obama will dance to and where the mental midgets of mass media will follow.

Make no mistake.....Barack Obama is not and never has been a self determining president. The man was and is the product of an insidious radical political party that has yet to be truly revealed to the American people.

There were those back during his campaign who knew who these people were and recognized them for what they were, but no one in American media was willing to listen or to print the reality. The media had been too thoroughly cowed to ever mention above a whisper what they knew of the "new party" and precisely how Barack Obama came from obscurity to become president of these United States.

The new party in America, masquerades as the democratic party with a small (d) and they love to embrace the banner of supposed progressives, but their true identity is nothing short of Fabian socialism at best and outright Marxist ideology at worst.

But yesterday was a game changer in more ways than one for both the Obama administration and those in the new party attempting to complete their coup of American capitalism and democracy..

One of our fail safes embedded into our system by the founders clicked in. The Supreme Court handed down a ruling that in essence
gutted the McCain Feingold act and as a result, stands to completely derail all future ability for these new party socialists to further control the politics of this country.

The scales have been balanced by the court and that is why we immediately saw the wailing and gnashing of teeth by the likes of the party mouthpieces like Chucky Shumer and Barney Frank and others denouncing the ruling.

They are already talking about trying to push through some form of legislation to thwart the court's ruling, so if Americans are smart, they will recognize the ploy for what it is and let their congressmen and senators know immediately. We had better let them know that they had better not sign on to such lunacy or what happened in Massachusetts this week is just the beginning.

Based upon that Supreme court ruling yesterday? There may finally be a hope of rescuing this nation from the grasp of the bloody hands of America's modern day Bolsheviks.

An old observation of life says....that you should never drink from the pool where the animals refuse to drink.

Well take a look around folks.

While the real Fabian socialist of Europe and their bastard cousins the Vichy socialists are praising the proposed actions of Barack Obama concerning his policies and restrictions on American banks?

They are quick to assert that they will not follow suit with their own economic and baking systems. Which tells me one thing very quickly....they know a poisoned well when they see one and they will not be drinking from it themselves.

Neither should we.

Is the influence of Club Bilderberg becoming apparent?

I thinks so. As evidenced by these headlines.

Obama hammers Wall Street banks

The global banking industry was thrown into turmoil on Thursday after President Barack Obama , responding to public rage over the financial crisis, proposed the most far-reaching overhaul of Wall Street since the 1930s.

In reforms that could force the restructuring of some of the biggest names in US finance, including JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs, Mr Obama promised that “never again will the American taxpayer be held hostage by a bank that is too big to fail”.

Flanked by Paul Volcker, the former Federal Reserve chairman, who has advocated the move for months, Mr Obama called for banks to be banned from running their own trading desks and “owning, investing in or sponsoring” hedge funds and private equity groups.

Tim Geithner, the Treasury secretary, who has come under attack from Democrats on Capitol Hill, backed the plan, officials said, even though his own regulatory proposals have stopped well short of the sweeping Volcker reforms.

According to that report? Geitner is on board with the presidents directives and desires concerning banking. But then on this report? He seems to be a little more than squeamish about the proposal.

Geithner aired concern on bank limits-sources

The sources, speaking anonymously because Geithner has not spoken publicly about his reservations, said the Treasury chief is concerned the proposed limits on big banks' trading and size could impact U.S. firms' global competitiveness.

He also has concerns that limits on proprietary trading do not necessarily get at the root of the problems and excesses that fueled the recent financial meltdown, the sources said.

But a White House official said Geithner was on board with Obama's economic team behind the proposals.

And what about Bloomberg in New York? Even though he is a "progressive," he too sees the writing on the wall if this socialist pipe dream becomes law.

Bloomberg Hammers Obama, Congress Over Bank Plan

Mayor Says President's Idea To Limit Size And Investments Will Lead To Big Problems For NYC, Including Layoffs

Yes sirree Bob, watching the battle between Fabian socialists and hard core socialists and their kin in Europe the Vichy socialists is getting interesting.

There is definitely a power struggle afoot in the midst of the global socialist camp and the battle ground is America. Will the Bilderbergs prevail?

I believe they already have.

What a difference a regime change makes

Clinton urges Internet freedom, condemns cyber attacks

Hillary Clinton now feels that the internet should be free and unfettered of political influnences and contro0ls of any kind.

"A new information curtain is descending across much of the world," she said, calling growing Internet curbs the modern equivalent of the Berlin Wall.

"We stand for a single Internet where all of humanity has equal access to knowledge and ideas," said Clinton in a major address that cited China, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Egypt among countries that censored the Internet or harassed bloggers.

But what was her position back when she was in the White house and she and hubby Bill were daily attempting to dodge and outrun the inquiries of those like Matt Drudge?

Sun Sep 25 2005 16:52:50 ET

Hillary Rodham Clinton said IN 1998 during a meeting with reporters said that "we are all going to have to rethink how we deal with" the Internet because of the handling of White House sex scandal stories on Web sites.

Clinton was asked whether she favored curbs on the Internet, after the DRUDGE REPORT made headlines with coverage of her husband's affair with a White House intern. "We are all going to have to rethink how we deal with this, because there are all these competing values ... Without any kind of editing function or gatekeeping function, what does it mean to have the right to defend your reputation?" she said.

Hillary Clinton Continued:

"I don't have any clue about what we're going to do legally, regulatorily, technologically -- I don't have a clue. But I do think we always have to keep competing interests in balance. I'm a big pro-balance person. That's why I love the founders -- checks and balances; accountable power. Anytime an individual or an institution or an invention leaps so far out ahead of that balance and throws a system, whatever it might be -- political, economic, technological --out of balance, you've got a problem, because then it can lead to the oppression people's rights, it can lead to the manipulation of information, it can lead to all kinds of bad outcomes which we have seen historically. So we're going to have to deal with that. And I hope a lot of smart people are going to --"

REPORTER: Sounds like you favor regulation.

MRS. CLINTON: Bill, I don't know what -- that's why I said I don't know what I'm in favor of. And I don't know enough to know what to be in favor of, because I think it's one of those new issues we've got to address. We've got to see whether our existing laws protect people's right of privacy, protect them against defamation. And if they can, how do you do that when you can press a button and you can't take it back. So I think we have to tread carefully.

Apparently Hillary has addressed the new issue and come down on the side of freedom. Although, I have to wonder. What would have been her position paper on the issue, had she have won the nomination adn the presidency.

I think I know the answer to that.

And yes.....there are all these competing values aren't there madam secretary.

Obama Ain't No Neo

There may have been many that thought that he was "the one." but they are now finding out something quite differently. And that reality crosses all demographics and political persuasions of Obama supporters IMO.

From those who are the zealot ideologues of socialism, to those who actually believed that he would pay their house payments and or for their gas at the pump, they are all coming up short when attempting to resolve the disparity between their dream world of socialism and the reality that is Obama brings to it.

The house of cards began to come unglued several months ago when he waffled for months over the issue of Afghanistan and his commitment to the safety of this nation and it's military and our commitments to the war on terror. That is when he began to lose the tolerance of the so called independents. His image and appeal was further tarnished when he turned his back on the economy and went full tilt after a health care proposal that the American people have repeatedly rejected and that any fool recognizes as a catastrophe.

That is when he lost the ideological middle of the road feel good Americans. Those that voted for the trip that was Obama "the first black president." And now he has lost the unions, regardless of what their leadership may have traded for in exchange for their forty pieces of silver.

There are a litany of articles and opined opinion pieces floating around the net and more so since Tuesdays democrat loss in Massachusetts. Each bemoans the reality of the drop in confidence and the drop in the polls and the obvious loss of star power (even in Europe) that the messiah had only one year ago this week.

Where to begin.

There have been so many thrown under the bus of progressive elitist socialism in thpast eighteen months, that it is hard to keep track of who is who on the victims list. But it appears that as each day passes, Obama himself is drawing closer to the wheel wells of the political machine that he neither controls nor influences. They may have elected him, but they hold no allegiances, especially when he stands to completely wreck their lives with his to date failures of state sponsored heaven.

As long as the puppet isn't aware that he is a puppet, the ruse remains a valid means of transition from capitalism to socialism in America. But the minute that the puppet becomes conscience and self aware of his own lack of power and influence in the equation, then the puppet begins to ask questions and to draw independent conclusions that don't settle well with the game plan of his handlers.

Glenn Beck referenced that reality earlier today on his radio program, when he stated that the president is placing himself in danger. The minute Barack Obama becomes self aware and the minute he begins to balk at continuing to be the willing driver of the socialists bus, and the minute he refuses to follow the set rout of this bus, then he becomes a liability to the real powers that be in the new party movement. And at that point the man is truly in danger from his own people.

Careful mr. president, for you may be called upon soon to take one for the team. Literally.

Muslims Angry Over Jesus Rifles

Wow! Who would have thunk it?

I wrote a blog earlier this week, outlining the controversy of the revealed Jesus codes supposedly encrypted on American military rifles by the sighting company that provides special sights and optics to our military.

I knew then as well as many other Americans recognized, that this story would become the tempest that would quickly swell and outgrow it's teapot. And apparently it has.

Muslims Angry Over U.S. Military 'Jesus' Rifles

Muslim groups reacted angrily Wednesday after it emerged that the U.S. military is using combat rifle sights inscribed with coded Biblical references.

Army officials have said they will investigate whether a Michigan defense contractor violated federal procurement rules by stamping references to Bible verses on the gun sights used by American forces to kill enemy fighters in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations on Wednesday said the continued use of the sights with the religious references would send a negative message to the Muslim world.

"The use of military equipment with hidden Bible references sends the false message to Muslims worldwide that we are at war with Islam," said CAIR Legal Counsel Nadhira Al-Khalili. "In addition, these sights are a potential recruiting tool for anti-American forces, endanger our troops and alienate our Muslim allies. They should we withdrawn as soon as logistically possible."

The Marine Corps, another major customer of the telescoping sights that allow troops to pinpoint targets day or night, says service acquisition officials plan to meet with Trijicon to discuss future purchases of the company's gear.

We certainly wouldn't want to send any negative messages to the Muslim world now would we. I mean the religion of peace? Might just up and launch a movement of peace and love against us. They might go from strapping on homicide vests and planting roadside IED's and looking for planes to crash into our buildings, to singing cumbaya and tossing love beads while they recite their holy Quran and attempt to win us over with their love.

But somehow? I don't think so.

I think, that our Muslim friends in the middle east will do what they always do. They will continue to attack and murder any and all who don't subscribe to their seventh century beliefs and they will do it all the while shouting "Allahu Akbar!"

So I see it as only fair and reasonable that our warriors remain equipped with weapons that bear the scriptures of our faith. And as a second thought? I hope that many of our soldiers are inscribing their bullets with bible verses and injecting these infidels directly with the love of our God.

The manufactured crisis of global warming explained

The man that founded the Weather Channel. A man with decades of experience concerning weather forecasting and observations. Yet you don't see him being covered by main stream media. The MSM would rather chase Al Gore around and give him the benefit of propagandizing his lies, than they would to allow the truth to be seen or heard.

Liberals and the main stream media react

Having just awakened to a morning after tea bag hangover, the liberal democrats and their punditry in the main stream media are literally reeling from their loss in Massachusetts last night. And they all now realize, that they are looking down both barrels of American voter anger and action over the liberals health care lunacy legislation.

Is this a game changer? I don't know, but what I do know is that this lost senate seat will only harden the hearts and the resolve of the rabidly liberal Dean and Pelosi wings of the democrat party.

They will now try to pass anything simply to say that they passed it and to attempt and denote that the republican win in Massachusetts didn't really derail their grandiose plans of socialist reform in America.

Now is the time for Americans to truly hit the phones and the emails to let these quivering puss piles in Washington know that this is only the first wave of what is in store come November.

The Epic Loss

Democrats seek back footing after epic Mass. loss

A year to the day after his inauguration, Barack Obama and his Democratic allies are suddenly scrambling to save his signature health care overhaul and somehow rediscover their political magic after an epic loss in the Massachusetts Senate race.

Have the people spoken? Are the people speaking? I certainly hope so. And what better place to find their voice than in the midst of conscienceless socialism for the past fifty years. IMO, the fact that this loss came in Massachusetts and at ground zero of the Kennedy legacy speaks volumes to the unrest of the people IMO.

The headlines are blaring that this is an epic loss and they are calling it the "Boston Tea Party." I believe that the reality is not being lost on this president and his regime of socialist interlopers both inside his administration and inside the proletariat media in America.

I look for the liberal democrat regime to open several more fronts of attack on the people of this country in the immediate future. They will not take this fundamental loss lying down or absent reaction and they certainly aren't prepared to listen to the desires of the people. Not yet. But this is certainly a beginning.

Congratulations to the new senator from Massachusetts. Now, lets see how long it takes for him to be seated.

The Vichy French Call It An Occupation

US accused of 'occupying' Haiti as troops flood in

France accused the US of "occupying" Haiti on Monday as thousands of American troops flooded into the country to take charge of aid efforts and security.

There is nothing quite as amazing as watching the Vichy socialist leaders of France pointing fingers at America. It was laughable yesterday to read where the little tin man of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, was calling the America aid effort in Haiti a military occupation by stealth.

But now we have the French throwing their two cents worth in and acting as if they have better and superior skills and abilities to rescue these squalid survivors of a country that was already a hell hole before this disaster.

Under normal circumstances, I would say "fine, pack our people up and get the hell out. Let the French and the likes of Hugo Chavez and the Cubans handle the rescue and recovery of Haiti. But reality doesn't allow those of us with conscience to indulge our anger at the expense and suffering of others.

Therefore, I suggest that once the crisis has been brought under control and some semblance of order restored, that we then step back and allow the socialist leaders of the world to show America how it is done.

But that won't happen, not for the least of reasons being that our present regime in Washington is in full court press to exploit this "good crisis" (as Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod) noted previously.

If Hugo Chavez and the French are wondering why the US Marines have been sent in to Haiti?

Let them have a look around.

Then Shut the F*** up.

All Stops Being Pulled To Save The Kennedy Seat

Obama's robocall for Coakley

And her last ditch campaign add.

The Bible Codes Part II

U.S. Military Weapons Inscribed With Secret 'Jesus' Bible Codes

I imagine that it won't be long before the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Chucky Shumer and other (progressive democrats) will descend as a unified cacophony on the American military and demand in unison, a total and complete recall of all existing US weaponry in use today. Hillary Clinton might even return to a suspension of disbelief over this FUBAR.

As a matter of fact, this may be what the Obama team has been searching for as their absolute and iron clad excuse to pull out of Afghanistan and Iraq all along. How can the these pious democrats and keepers of the founding principles, in good conscience allow this travesty to memory of Thomas Jefferson's letter to the Danbury Baptist to stand?

What I find particularly amusing about this report, is the reference to the supposed inclusion of "secret bible codes and secret Jesus codes" incorporated onto these weapons sights by the manufacturer.

Coded references to New Testament Bible passages about Jesus Christ are inscribed on high-powered rifle sights provided to the United States military by a Michigan company, an ABC News investigation has found.

Apparently the truth is, nothing has been found and nothing has been obscured period. These inscriptions have apparently been there all along and dating back for years. It's just that someone finally noticed that they were there and broke the supposed "Jesus code."

Other references include citations from the books of Revelation, Matthew and John dealing with Jesus as "the light of the world." John 8:12, referred to on the gun sights as JN8:12, reads, "Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

Trijicon confirmed to that it adds the biblical codes to the sights sold to the U.S. military. Tom Munson, director of sales and marketing for Trijicon, which is based in Wixom, Michigan, said the inscriptions "have always been there" and said there was nothing wrong or illegal with adding them. Munson said the issue was being raised by a group that is "not Christian." The company has said the practice began under its founder, Glyn Bindon, a devout Christian from South Africa who was killed in a 2003 plane crash.

So there you have it. It won't be long before the secular humanists in congress (and there are many) will be wailing and gnashing their teeth and tearing at their tunics and besieging the Army and Marine Corps to lay down these offensive Christian crusader weapons.

Can a call for reparations be not far behind? To sooth the scarred souls of all the poor Muslim combatants who have been felled in the name of Allah by one of these demonic Christian devices?

Stay tuned.....I say that it will take less than a month before the sack cloth and ashes of the democrats begins over this issue of pseudo separation of church and state and their call for millions to be spent to rectify the tragedy if insipid Christianity being placed surreptitiously onto American weaponry and ordinance.

Some Things Are Just Wrong

Cruise ships still find a Haitian berth

Some things are simply self explanatory IMO. No need to do anything beyond pass along the facts and let people be their own judges.

Sixty miles from Haiti's devastated earthquake zone, luxury liners dock at private beaches where passengers enjoy jetski rides, parasailing and rum cocktails delivered to their hammocks.

The 4,370-berth Independence of the Seas, owned by Royal Caribbean International, disembarked at the heavily guarded resort of Labadee on the north coast on Friday; a second cruise ship, the 3,100-passenger Navigator of the Seas is due to dock.

The Florida cruise company leases a picturesque wooded peninsula and its five pristine beaches from the government for passengers to "cut loose" with watersports, barbecues, and shopping for trinkets at a craft market before returning on board before dusk. Safety is guaranteed by armed guards at the gate.

The decision to go ahead with the visit has divided passengers. The ships carry some food aid, and the cruise line has pledged to donate all proceeds from the visit to help stricken Haitians. But many passengers will stay aboard when they dock; one said he was "sickened".

"I just can't see myself sunning on the beach, playing in the water, eating a barbecue, and enjoying a cocktail while [in Port-au-Prince] there are tens of thousands of dead people being piled up on the streets, with the survivors stunned and looking for food and water," one passenger wrote on the Cruise Critic internet forum.

Dear Union Members: Your Leadership Just Screwed Over The Rest Of America

Found this linked over at Texan in Wisconsin blog this morning. How true.

These so called "union leaders" have led their memberships and this nation to the socialist slaughter. These Judas goats will be exposed for just who they are and what they represent. Problem and I will be stuck with the aftermath of it.

A pox on them.

Tags: Politics, Health Care Reform

(This guest post originally appeared at the author's Facebook page. It pertains to the news that union workers received a 10-year tax exemption on so-called "Cadillac" healthcare plans, while other workers must pay up immediately.)

In the latest to come out of D.C.’s backroom health care deals, President Obama yesterday cut a doozy of a deal with labor union bosses. The fed’s health care plan must be so bad that even union bosses had to go to D.C. to say they wanted out. So... to keep their support for a flawed plan they got an exemption to provisions in the deal that others did not. Small business owners, our families running America’s mom & pops, did not get this deal. Ask yourself: why did union bosses get special treatment? And when did our country’s unions get on the wrong track with moves like this that hurt their good members and put them in such a bad light?

Good hard-working, pro-free-market, pro-America union members should join in opposition to their union bosses’ sweetheart deal. Coming from a union background and living in a world with many union memberships among my family and friends, I know that average members will be embarrassed by their bosses’ deal, which basically only delays the heavy tax on their health care plans until 2018 and in the meantime unfairly leaves many fellow Americans in a much less “enviable” position.

Union members don’t want to stick it to non-union colleagues in the private and public sector. Their union leadership is not helping them in the long run, they’re certainly not helping the rest of America, and unfortunately some union bosses are making all union members look bad, selfish, and anti-business with this Big Government backroom deal.

I know that ordinary union members don’t want to hurt their fellow Americans, just as ordinary Nebraskans didn’t want to stick it to the rest of the country with a sweetheart deal on Medicaid subsidies. I urge union members to make their voices heard. Please, call your leadership – don’t put up with these special-interest politics – tell them to fight for all Americans who want common sense health care reform, not this flawed boondoggle.

"They are occupying Haiti undercover."

Chavez says U.S. occupying Haiti in name of aid

This should be absolutely comical. Except that this lunatic is deadly serious. Chavez has absolutely no idea of the carnage or the aftermath which has now degenerated into anarchy and chaos across much of Haiti. What does this idiot think should be done? There has to be security or else all you get are thugs and drug lords seizing all aid.

"I read that 3,000 soldiers are arriving, Marines armed as if they were going to war. There is not a shortage of guns there, my God. Doctors, medicine, fuel, field hospitals, that's what the United States should send," Chavez said on his weekly television show. "They are occupying Haiti undercover."

"On top of that, you don't see them in the streets. Are they picking up bodies? ... Are they looking for the injured? You don't see them. I haven't seen them. Where are they?"

Every time the man opens his mouth, he looks more and more like the dictatorial little fool that he is. Problem is? The present administration has given his socialist lunacy traction. Meanwhile, those like Danny Glover and Sean Penn and Cindy Sheehan remain "BFF's" with Chavez and parroting his version of socialist paradise every chance they get.

Let's hope nothing happens to Venezuela as far as earthquakes or natural disaster. Because if it does? I wonder who Hugo and his little buddy Danny Glover will blame for that. And I wonder who they will "allow" to help the people. There must be a tree of freedom somewhere in that country that needs watering with the blood of this tyrant.

It's only a matter of time now.

XynYoda's take on the issue.

It's only a matter of time now IMO. Sheriff Arpaio is being attacked and demonized as the precursor of things to come concerning illegal immigration in America and Barack Obama's designs on opening the borders.

Anyone that doesn't realize that this protest was orchestrated by the same people and the same breed of new left political and union backed machine politics that elected and is controlling Barack Obama, has another think coming. These same people have just completed selling their memberships down the river and into bondage under Obama's health care plan. They won nothing, there was no compromise or fairness involved. They simply gained a postponement of effect agaisnt them for eight years.

Just as soon as Obama completes his coup of the American health care system, (which he will now accomplish based upon the support of unions) he will set his sights on opening the flood gates on our borders to a literal illegal invasion. Did America receive a prescient peek in the box yesterday? When Obama declared free, all current illegal Haitians residing in America? All the illegal Haitians presently here? Are now legal with the stroke of a presidential pen.

And If the unions think that they have reached a realistic or beneficial compromise with Obama and Pelosi on health care? Just wait until they see the deal that is about to be buried in their collective asses as it concerns illegal immigration and the liberal socialist left's belief, in the right and entitlement of illegals to come into this country and take their jobs.

Remember where you heard it first and then just watch and wait and see what happens. It won't take long.

Thousands Protest Arizona Sheriff's Immigration Efforts

PHOENIX — Ten thousand immigrant rights advocates marched in front of a county jail in Phoenix Saturday in a protest that was aimed at Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's immigration efforts and was marked by a clash between a small group of protesters and police officers.

Organizers say the protest was meant to show officials in Washington that Arpaio shouldn't handle immigration enforcement, and that Congress and the Obama administration need to come up with a way for immigrant workers to come to the country legally.

The three-mile walk that started in a west Phoenix park ended by afternoon at the Durango Jail Complex, a collection of five jails, where officials played music, including a record by singer Linda Ronstadt, to drown out noise made by protesters. Ronstadt took part in Saturday's protest.

Protesters chanted "Joe must go" as they approached the jail complex. One person carried a sign that said "We are human" and bore a picture of a lawman with a wolf's face. A family of five wore T-shirts saying "Who would Jesus deport?"

America's Newest Amusement Attraction

Walt Disney once opined to his loyal staff of imagineers "My only hope is that we never lose sight of one thing, that it was all started by a mouse."

What a difference fifty years makes.

In the same land where Walt Disney launched his world famous amusement park for all ages, the latest attraction features some interesting twists and none of them are based on fairy tales.

For $65, Tourists Get Peek at Los Angeles Gangland

And that price includes the opportunity to become a crime victim or worse apparently.

Passengers paying $65 a head Saturday signed waivers acknowledging they could be crime victims and put their fate in the hands of tattooed ex-gang members who say they have negotiated a cease-fire among rivals in the most violent gangland in America.

Perhaps some enterprising individual can throw something together for those wanting to visit the machete wielding gangs and anarchist neighborhoods presently roaming Haiti, before the international relief efforts and the UN spoil all the potential fun for tourists in that adventure too.

All I can say about this revelation of the modern tourist experience in LA?

Absolutely amazing.

A small battle of Titanic proportions

Obama to Visit Massachusetts in Final Campaign Push for Coakley

Whilst the eyes of America and the democratic party have been focused on the president's health care reform coup in congress, a small but very important battle has been being waged over in Massachusetts over who will be elected to fill the senate seat left vacant by the death of Ted Kennedy.

And it now appears that those sticky little details (the voters) are creeping up and biting the democrats in the backside on the eve of this election.

A month ago Scott Brown was just some lack luster political candidate running for the seat simply because the republicans needed to have someone on the ticket to at least give the appearance of a fight and a campaign for the vacant seat. But oh what a difference a month makes. And as each day has passed Scott Brown has pulled closer and closer to Coakley in the polls. And he has now succeeded to the point where now, he is considered at worst in a dead heat with democrat shoo in Martha Coakley. And at best? He is ahead by at least four percentage points going into Tuesdays election.

So now it is time to summon the Titans. The White House has today announced that the president will make an appearance in Massachusetts on Sunday, to attempt and sway the voters to come out for Martha Coakley.

Several media pundits today, including Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck have noted that how Obama plays this senate seat election, may in the end speak volumes about both his own continued marketability and the outcome of this race and the midterms.

The consensus of opinion in many political circles seems to be, that if he goes to Massachusetts and Martha Coakley loses the election after his supposed boost, that the end effect will not bode well for either Obama of the democrats come November and the midterms.

On the other hand, if Martha Coakley pulls out the win (even by a slim margin) that will be seen as a major triumph for both the democrats and the Obama White House. Personally, I hope that Brown not only beats here, I hope he shames her with a landslide. But I will settle for a win.

Which brings out the next immediate reality. That being the fact that if Brown wins, the democrats will do everything possible to call for recounts and stall his taking the seat for the immediate future if not forever. A Brown win means the end of their 60 seat majority and the senate seat stolen in Minnesota by Al Franken and ACORN.

Payback is a beach.....ain't it.

It Will Happen Here

Who's running Haiti? No one, say the people

Desperate Haitians turned rubble-strewn streets and parks into makeshift hospitals and refugee camps on Thursday in the absence of any noticeable response from authorities in Haiti after Tuesday's earthquake.

There are many who might agree, that America is already in a similar boat with Haiti as it applies to the lack of leadership being demonstrated by this administration. They might argue that we don't have any real leadership and that as each day passes, our ship of state drifts ever farther from the safe harbors that have been cultivated over the past two hundred years to both protect us and insure our survivability. And I as one observer would whole heartedly agree with that assessment.

But the reality of the absence of leadership in government in Haiti and how that parallels our own sad state of affairs presently, only leads to a greater contemplation in my opinion. "What would happen, if a similar event were to take place in America? On the mainland?" Something so devastating, as to have never been seen before.

Some might say....well it already has happened. Look no further than hurricane Katrina and the devastation wrought there. But Katrina level disaster is not what I am contemplating. No more I am sure, than the people of Haiti were contemplating the worst earthquake in recorded history striking their island a week ago.

No.....what I am contemplating and considering while I watch the aftermath of disaster in Haiti is this. What would it be like here in America. What would it be like if a calamity a hundred times worse than Katrina were to befall us as it has Haiti.

There are those of course who fear the great calamity of the super volcano that resides below Yellowstone and it's potential to end life as we know it on this planet. I have read of its existence and watched the informational documentaries produced by today's entertainment media. They would like us all to believe that such a disaster is looming right around the corner. Probably to be brought on by global warming or climate change or our collective failure to recycle and eliminate plastic grocery bags.

But what are the realities of such an event happening? What are the real potentials? What are the probabilities of something very terrible being visited upon our nation by mother nature? Or worse? Personally? I'd say that the odds are better than even. For those unfamiliar with predictability and odds making.......even odds means that there is a 50/50 chance of occurrence. Which on the surface may represent a "fair chance." An oxymoron if there ever was one, but none the less, I'd say that our odds of escaping such a disaster are presently 50/50 at best and worsening by the day.

There are lessons to be learned from the disaster unfolding before our eyes in Haiti. And one of the first lessons that began to unfold yesterday, was the complete collapse of society and the rampaging and looting that is now in progress. That reality took less than 48 hours to surface and the 72 hour mark is when the very real sense of corruption and decomposition and disease will settle in over the aftermath.

But even in the face of the facts that there may be as many as half a million dead and disease rampant, there will be those rampaging through the streets and taking advantage of death and disaster. And the only thing that will begin to present balance or the ability to rein in or control the violence, will be the presence of the American military and American workers who have been brought in to hopefully stop it and restore order.

Which logically should beg the question? Who is capable of rescuing America should a mega disaster strike us? And there lies the reality that should be smacking most Americans in the face as they watch the horrors of Haiti unfolding. There is no one who is either capable or willing to come to our aid should the great beast that is America be felled, either by natural disaster or consequence of error.

Anyone remember the billions in foreign aid that poured into America in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina? Me neither. Anyone ever remember seeing or hearing of other nations that came running to help us during times of crisis or disaster? I don't seem to recall any. I don't seem to recall any fund raisers or bake sales going on in the middle east or Europe in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks either.

On the contrary, I seem to recall mostly a collective global gasp and a panicked fear of anticipation, as to what the Americans would do and how would they handle it. And of course there were the longing eyes and outstretched hands of the rest of the world. Out stretched in anticipation of receiving more mana from the great Satan that someone had just struck out against and wounded.

But I digress.

Getting back to the present reality, the point that I am making is simply this. If America is struck with an event so massive as to devastate a single region of the country, or heaven forbid, several regions of the country? How will we survive. How will we fare any better than what we are seeing presently in Haiti. And who will become our rescuers?

Every American should be contemplating that right now IMO. As they should be contemplating the consequences of our present foreign policy as it concerns Islamic terrorism and what that really represents to this country.

Osama Bin Ladin promised over five years ago, that he would one day see his "American Hiroshima" project brought to reality. And since 9/11, America and the world have stood back and mostly watched as those capable of making his dreams a reality, reach ever closer to the day when Bin Ladin's dream becomes our nightmare.

Something interesting happened yesterday IMO. The Doomsday clock was reset (back) one minute. Everyone gave a collective sigh of relief, signifying that globally we had moved one step farther away from Armageddon as a planet. But what these same people failed to see IMO, is that America's Doomsday clock was set forward by another minute.

While the collectivist sheep of global socialism sighed in relief that the policies of retreat and surrender by America's president have seemingly given them hope, what they failed to realize is that these same policies will lead to a far more dire future than their fears could imagine.

A weakened America doesn't represent hope for anyone other than those who seek to do us harm. And once that harm has been unleashed there will be no reconciliation with the reality and the aftermath of having suffered fools.

Yes America.....sit back and watch and learn as it concerns the terrible aftermath of Haiti. For this is what looms in our not too distant future. Look at the pictures of Haiti America. Looks surreal doesn't it, looks like the aftermath of Hiroshima doesn't it. And yes, it will happen here.
