The Annual "Hang 'em High" Award

This is a photo of Franklin D. Raines, one of America's outstanding modern businessmen, one partially responsible for the mess we are in:

"Outstanding" in the sense of what an exceptionally talented thief he is.

In 2006, the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight accused former Fannie Mae Chief Executive Franklin D. Raines and two other executives of manipulating earnings from 1998 to 2004 so they would receive bonuses totaling $115 million.
Civil charges were filed against Raines, who is also a former budget director for President Bill Clinton; J. Timothy Howard, former chief financial officer; and Leanne G. Spencer, former Fannie Mae controller. Raines is paying a $24.7 million settlement, an additional $2 million fine and he was forced to forfeit $15.6 million in stock options. Howard agreed to pay $6.4 million, and Spencer agreed to pay $275,000. Fannie Mae has agreed to pay a $400 million civil settlement to the OFHEO and the Securities and Exchange Commission.
"Manipulated earnings" so they could get 115 million in bonuses. That is just out-and-out thievery and crookedness, pre-meditated to boot..

These men paid back a total of 46,975,000 dollars. That leaves 68,025,000 dollars unaccounted for. And just where is that money this very minute?

Worse, Fannie May is paying a 400 million dollar civil settlement. Who to? Who gets all that unearned booty?

Talk about stupidity... Fannie Mae loses 115 million to its crooked managers, so the civil authorities step in and loot an additional 400 million dollars... a "settlement" they call it.

But but but, they recovered almost 47 million dollars! Yeah right. That leaves Fannie Mae with a total loss of 468 million dollars, 68 million dollars still unaccounted for, and 400 million going to the "civil" authorities.

The crooks are not only on Wall Street.

Final tally of Fannie Mae loses caused by Raines and his fellow crooks: $468,025 000, almost a half billion dollars.

You are familiar with the annual "Darwin Awards"? Where really dumb people have removed themselves from the human gene pool by killing themselves off with really, really stupid stunts? So stupid that they can get nominated for the award?

Well, I think we need an annual "Hang 'em High" award, nominees to be chosen from the vast pool of white-collar thieving bastards in business and government. I would immediately nominate Raines.

Then, at the awards ceremony - after awarding the 1st place medal - we hang the winner... and recover the medal for next year.

The Sun Also Rises

Just watched the news (for a few minutes) to see the fallout from the "no" vote on the bailout bill.

Stock market up over 265 points.

Dollar at a two-week high against the Euro.

AIG up 24%.

This the day after Bush and his fellow losers warned of a total collapse if the bailout failed.

Nobody jumped out of buildings.

Nobody threw themselves on the railroad tracks.

The world stock markets just sort of ho-hummed the whole thing.

So, did we need that 700 billion dollar bailout?

Looks like the answer is "NO".

Still Think The Fed Is a Good Thing?

The Federal Reserve system has been an unmitigated disaster for America, far worse than imagined.Things started going to hell the very day the Federal Reserve System was formed:
From 1813 to 1907, the U.S. dollar appreciated in value. What cost one dollar in 1813 cost only 48 cents in 1907. In 1913, the Federal Reserve was formed, ostensibly to provide financial stability and "fight inflation." Since then, the value of a dollar has all but vanished, as what cost one dollar in 1913 cost $20.73 in 2007; the dollar has lost 95.2 percent of its value under management of the Fed.
Keep in mind that the Fed is a privately owned institution, controlled only by its board and stockholders - mostly foreigners - and not answerable to the United States government. The only input our government has is it gets to appoint the chairman, but we can't fire him or exercise control over the Feds movements and actions.

You can start to understand why the Fed is so busy bailing out foreign banks. It's the owners and stockholders of the Fed that are doing it, not to help us, but to protect themselves and their money.

It's beginning to appear that - more than anything - we need to rid ourselves of this century-old disaster, and return the control of our money system to the U.S. Treasury, where it belongs.

More And More

This is NOT part of the 700 billion bailout bill:
Sept. 29 (Bloomberg) -- The Federal Reserve will pump an additional $630 billion into the global financial system, flooding banks with cash to alleviate the worst banking crisis since the Great Depression.
The "global financial system".

We are getting so shafted.


Seems like such a tiny group of people to be able to cause so much harm to so many millions of others.

I have been hoping for years that I would be dead and gone before this house of cards collapsed around us, but it looks like I'm going to have to live through it, right along with the rest of you.


The Bill for All Seasons

Here are the claimed purposes for the bailout bill:

The purposes of this Act are—

(1) to immediately provide authority and facilities that the Secretary of the Treasury can use to restore liquidity and stability to the financial system of the United States; and

(2) to ensure that such authority and such facilities are used in a manner that—

(A) protects home values, college funds, retirement accounts, and life savings;

(B) preserves homeownership and promotes jobs and economic growth;

(C) maximizes overall returns to the tax payers of the United States; and

(D) provides public accountability for the exercise of such authority.
Does anyone in the Senate or the House of Representatives actually believe any of that tripe?

Anybody who does believe any of that does not belong in Washington... they belong in Oz.

Maybe they think we will believe it...

Worth A Second Look

Take another look at this photograph:

The question of the century is: Why are they smiling and laughing?

These are the people who have been burning the midnight oil in their efforts to save their friends and benefactors, the Wall Street pirates. They want to reward bad behavior and criminal activity with massive bailouts to be paid for by the taxpayers. These are the people who are burdening upcoming generations with incredible debt. These are the people who are selling out your future, your prosperity - any chance you may have had for financial security - to save their campaign donors, to continue lining their pockets. They are repaying their personal debts to their benefactors and supporters with our money.

We are being told that no institution in America is offering credit and that this bailout is to "free up" the flow of credit. What is really happening is that our banks are brazenly blackmailing us by holding up credit until they get their billions of taxpayer dollars. The bankers involved in this national blackmail should be taken out and shot.

Our nation is broke. We have no money, no reserves, no savings... nothing. The Bush administration has to borrow money from foreign countries to pay for his war. The money for the bailout will also have to be borrowed. Since we are in a financial bind, the borrowed money is going to cost much more. You know the drill, the lower your credit score, the more you need the money, the higher the interest.

There is massive national anger over this Democratically lead attempt to raid the U.S. Treasury for the benefit of a few Wall Street thieves. Letters and E-mails to the House and Senate are almost 99 to 1 against this bailout.

But these Democrats, such as our modern day Marie Antoinette, our very own Nancy "let them eat cake" Pelosi, Barney "I'm gonna get mine" Franks and Harry "I do as I'm told" Reid, don't give a tinkers damn about us, this nation, or it's future.

Look at them in the photo. Happy as pigs in mud now that they are apparently succeeding in their efforts to literally shovel trillions of our dollars into the pockets of the Wall Street gang of thieves. That's why they are laughing and smiling, even though people across America are 99 to 1 against what they are doing. Citizens across America are being totally ignored. These people do not care that you will have to dig deeper into your pockets for the rest of your life to help pay for this robbery.

You can drop dead, You can go to hell. They don't care.

Take one more look at that photo: Every person in it deserves to be tried for malfeasance in office, for accepting bribes, and treason.

This bailout will not stop what is happening, only delay it a few days or weeks, and when Americans finally understand the enormity of what these people are doing - and will have done - to them, they will demand blood... lots of it.

I will bet some of my increasingly worthless federal reserve notes that the majority of the people in the photograph will not run for public office again - ever - but will take their swag, their personal loot, and vanish from the American scene... most likely to places without extradition procedures.

How True... How True

Go read Vox Day to explain this joyful crowd...

The looters have won.

Good Question

I was reading an article called "Bet On Israel Bombing Iran" published on the Daily News opinion page and saw that a responder had asked the question;"
Why is someone anti-Semitic for not wanting to die for israel?
Good question.

It occurs to me the same mechanism is used by those who accuse someone of being a racist if they don't like Obama.

Both the pro-Israeli and pro-Obama people try to make you feel embarrassed and guilty if you don't see things their way, and they are both quite bullyish and vicious about it to the point that most people just prefer to remain quiet about their opinions, rather than give more fuel to the fanatics.

This - of course - gives both camps the false impression that they have won. However, the Jews are presently discovering that their tactic of accusing everybody who disagrees with them of anti-Semitism has run its course and lost its effectiveness, which has had the unexpected side effect of reducing the credibility of the so-called Holocaust.

Obama's supporters may have the opportunity to witness the consequences of calling so many ordinary folks "racist" in just a few weeks.

For the Jews, it's taking a bit longer.

A point to ponder:

Like it points out in the highlighted article, if the Jews bomb Iran, the Straits of Hormuz will be shut down, no oil will flow, assuring a true American depression far worse than 1929 ever was.

Would a real friend to America cause such a disaster? If the Jews do attack Iran, We can all finally reach the conclusion that Israel is no friend to the United States... never has been.

We have been their friends, but it has been a one-sided and costly relationship.

One more point to ponder:

If Iran ends up with a nuke or two in the next 5-10 years, they will still be facing an Israel with an estimated 300 to 500 nukes. Any attack by Iran would guarantee a retaliatory strike by Israel that would literally wipe Iran off the map, and start up WWIII as a bonus.

All this babble about Iran being such a nuclear threat to Israel is - in fact - nonsensical gibberish not supported by any real evidence or facts at all.

So, if the Jews do attack Iran, it will not be in fear of an Iranian nuclear assault. What is their hidden agenda that is worth send America spinning into a decades-long economic disaster?


The below photograph shows some of the greatest looters in the history of the world.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., is at the microphone. Others are SEC Chairman Chris Cox, third from left, and Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, fourth from left, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke, right. Looking over Pelosi's left shoulder is Christopher Dobbs.

This group, along with a few more accomplices such as George Bush, have already confiscated almost a trillion dollars from the American Taxpayer and now want our OK for over 800 billion more, to save our "economy", a code word they use for their benefactors on Wall Street.

Already confiscated:
$85 billion to AIG.

$200 billion for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

$300 billion for the Federal Housing Administration.

$4 billion in grants to local communities to help them buy and repair foreclosed homes.

At least $87 billion in repayments to JPMorgan Chase for providing financing to underpin trades with units of bankrupt investment bank Lehman Brothers. U.S.

$29 billion in financing for JPMorgan Chase's government-brokered buyout of Bear Stearns in March. The Fed agreed to take $30 billion in questionable Bear assets as collateral, making JPMorgan liable for the first $1 billion in losses, while agreeing to shoulder any further losses.

At least $200 billion of currently outstanding loans to banks issued through the Fed's Term Auction Facility, which was recently expanded to allow for longer loans of 84 days alongside the previous 28-day credits.
They have already given away over 900 billion of your dollars to these Wall Street fat cats, who really are thieves.

Now they want another 800 plus billion more, with not one single guarantee that all this money will fix anything.

Can those "law-makers" in the photo be called thieves also? Well, since we sent them to Washington to make our laws, they are making new laws that will legalize this incredible raid on the American treasury. That it will cripple the taxpayer and indenture our children for generations is of no concern to these pillagers. Technically, they will be law-abiding - according to the laws they are creating this very minute - but they are beyond any doubt the greatest looters and pillagers in recorded history.

All that money is not going to help the average citizen. It is being used to bailout the buddies, the pals, the relatives, the fat cat campaign donors, the mega-corporations, the real masters of these people, who are supposed to be our Representatives in government, protecting our interests.

They will do this, no matter how fierce the the opposition nation-wide, because they have no choice. They have all been purchased - lock, stock and barrel - and must now stand and deliver to their buyers and masters, taxpayers be damned.

This unfolding crime - the greatest in history - is sad beyond belief.

Friday, September 26, 2008


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Friday a plan to rescue U.S. financial institutions "has to happen," but final agreement is up to conservative Republicans who revolted against the plan being negotiated between Congress and the Treasury Department.

"It will happen because it has to happen," Pelosi, a California Democrat, said in an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America." "I would hope that we could come to agreement in the next 24 hours."

Senseless reasoning:"It will happen because it has to happen."

No it doesn't... the market can and will - if given the chance - fix itself. Once the movers and shakers realize that more taxpayer bailouts are out out the question, they'll fix it themselves. No way will they allow the golden goose to die.

I think I am beginning to dislike this woman more than any female I have ever known or heard about.

Come to think of it, she's just about the first woman I have ever disliked.

Give Us The Damn Money!

Barney Franks, Christopher Dodd, George Bush, Nancy Pelosi, Henry Paulson, all livid over the fact their their 800 billion-dollar bailout is not sailing through our lobbyist-controlled Congress.

Barney Franks, one of Wall Streets trusted insiders, is beside himself that some Senators and Representatives want a few facts and rules on this mess.

For example, they have requested information on the actual value of all these "toxic" mortgages, the ones supposedly now worthless. Remember that these "toxic" pieces of supposed worthless paper are actually the titles to billions and billions of dollars worth of new and late model homes. So far, they have been flatly refused this information.

The people behind all this are not stupid... quite the opposite. This was intentionally generated, and it's one of the greatest scams in history. Here's how they did it:

-1) Through the use of donations to political campaigns and to offshore numbered bank accounts, buy enough members of Congress to get the rules relaxed, to short-circuit any possible oversight. That was successfully accomplished.

-2) Offer mortgages to unwary buyers with no money down, fabulously low interests rates, no credit checks or income checks, no verification of the financial stability of the potential buyer, but in the fine print have a ARM clause that shoots the interest rate through the roof in a couple years. That was done.

-3) Sit back and wait for those ARM clauses to trigger, forcing millions of homeowners into bankruptcy and foreclosure. When that happens, the institutions that kept their paper will fail, the institutions that sold their paper to places like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac won't matter, because Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will face collapse also.

-4) Get your purchased clowns in the government to bailout {most} of the failing institutions, returning them to good health. The owners and stockholders are totally satisfied, and guess what? They have all that real estate to resell at market values and reasonable interest rates, for billions and billions of pure profit. Tons of money for everybody. Well, almost everybody...

Only the taxpayer loses.

And remember... NONE of this happened by accident.

More Points To Ponder

-1) BEIJING, Sept 25 (Reuters) - Chinese regulators have told domestic banks to stop interbank lending to U.S. financial institutions to prevent possible losses during the financial crisis, the South China Morning Post reported on Thursday.

Look for other international sources of our borrowed money to quickly follow suit.

-2) The FDIC will soon need more than 150 billion dollars to cover insured bank accounts.

It won't take many more failures before the FDIC itself runs out of money. The agency had $45.2 billion in its coffers as of June 30, far short of the $200 billion estimated that will be needed pay claims by the end of next year. The FDIC knows which banks are at risk; it has a secret watch list with 117 institutions on it, and how much it will take to bail them out.

But don't worry, your money is safe... the treasury will bail them out... with borrowed money of course. At least that's the present plan.

-3) The bottom is falling out of the credit market, the government has borrowed far too much money during the last eight years, and it's international credit sources are vanishing. Oops, change of plan may be necessary FDIC...

Our personal ability to borrow money, or use our charge cards, will get very, very tough. Look for many of your credit cards to be cancelled, or start carrying a huge annual fee and incredible interest rate, or become junk plastic because the institution providing them collapsed.

But it's all good... Ali Velshi does not see a 1929 style collapse in the "downward trend" we're seeing. (He really does, he just can't talk about it... you know panic, and all that)

-4) It now appears that George Bush's personal hatred of Saddam Hussein, Bush's fanatical desire to "take him down" - a hatred that has mired this nation in an unjustified war with a three trillion-dollar-plus (all borrowed) price tag, may just take this nation down along with Saddam.

-5) Always keep in mind that there were no Iraqis in the 911 aircraft. They were mostly Saudis, and the well-to-do, rich Saudi citizen most responsible - Osama Bin Laden - never was in Iraq. He went and hid in Afghanistan, a war Bush has ignored for almost eight years, and has now re-ignited.

Three Points To Ponder

-1) Folks have been e-mailing comments and questions into CNN's Ali Velshi for his views and input. One comment was:
If this economic crisis is as bad as claimed, then the stock market should be around 5,000 and gold should be around $3,000.
A good point. The 1929 crisis that caused the Great Depression did indeed crash the stock market. Ali's response? Stocks are trending downward, while gold us trending upward. He had no comments about the fact that there is no 1929 style "crash" in sight.

-2) Barak Obama just said that the upcoming debate between him and McCain(McCain has suspended his campaign to go back to Washington and participate in the bailout controversy) should go off as scheduled... because the American people deserve to hear from the man who will be responsible for fixing "this mess" in forty days.

Barak Obama - like John McCain - is a United States Senator. He is responsible NOW, this very minute, to be where he belongs, in the Senate, to help fix "this mess". They are talking of a trillion dollars of taxpayer money to be handed out - no strings attached - to wall street. EVERY vote counts.

-3) President Bush just said on TV we all need to pull together to handle this situation. Seems to me that is happening no matter what we do or don't do, because in forty days, Bush's replacement will be chosen, and the man most responsible for "this mess" George Walker Bush, Mr. "borrow and spend " himself, will be on the way out... forever.

Is He To Be Believed This Time?

On Sept. 12, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson said the financial system had been fixed and "under no circumstances" would there be further bailouts; on Friday, Sept. 19th, Paulson said the system was collapsing and another $700 billion was needed. Suddenly Paulson is insisting the country has no choice other than immediately to hand over $700 billion to Wall Street fat cats, with barely any debate or even explanation of the plan.

Is He To Be Believed This Time?

Short answer? NO.

Should we give them the money?

Only answer: NO.

Words To Heed

Where have we heard this before?
But our situation is represented to be so critically dreadful, that, however reprehensible and exceptionable the proposed plan of government may be, there is no alternative, between the adoption of it and absolute ruin.

My fellow citizens, things are not at that crisis; it is the argument of tyrants.
– Samuel Bryan ["Centinel," Number 1, Oct. 5, 1787, "Anti-Federalist Papers," ratification of the Constitution]

Now we are hearing the same old argument from Paulson and Bernake. Should we believe them?
My fellow citizens, things are not at that crisis; it is the argument of tyrants.
These are the words to heed, not those of Paulson and Bernake.

India Leads The way

No multi-million-dollar golden parachute for this guy:
Corporate India is in shock after a mob of sacked workers bludgeoned to death the chief executive who had dismissed them from a factory in a suburb of Delhi.
That's what I call making the CEO stand responsible for his decisions.

China does the same thing thing it's crooked CEO's, except the government executes the bastards.

In America, they become lobbyists, and buy a fancy home in the Hamptons, or slither off to Europe somewhere.

Personally, I like the Indian solution best of all.

Some Of Obama's Lies And Whoppers

Some curveballs - and outright lies - that have been tossed by Obama:
Obama said: "Selma March Got Me Born..."
NO. He was born in 1961, the Selma march was in 1965.
Obama said: "My Father Was A Goat Herder..."
LIE. his father was a privileged, well educated youth, who went on to work with the Kenyan Government.
Obama said: "My Father Was A Proud Freedom Fighter..."
LIE. His father was a part of Kenya's government.
Obama said:My Family Has Strong Ties To African Freedom
NO. His cousin Raila Odinga helped to create mass violence in attempting to overturn a legitimate election in 2007, in Kenya. Obama's half-brother, Abongo Obama, is Odinga's follower.
Obama said: My Name is African Swahili
WRONG. His name is Arabic and 'Baraka' (from which Barack came) means 'blessed' in that language. Hussein is also Arabic and so is Obama.

Barack Hussein Obama is not half black. Barack Hussein Obama is 50% Caucasian from his mother's side, and 43.75% Arabic and 6.25% African Negro from his father's side.

While Barack Hussein Obama's father was from Kenya, his father's family was mainly Arab. Barack Hussein Obama's father was only 12.5% African Negro and 87.5% Arab. His father's birth certificate states he's Arab, not African Negro.
Obama said: My School In Indonesia Was Christian.
SO WHAT? He was registered as Muslim there and got in trouble in Koranic Studies for making faces (check his own book).

Kristoff from the New York Times a year ago:
Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed
delightfully uncalculated (it'll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as 'one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.
To continue:
Obama said: I Was Fluent In Indonesian
LIE. Not one of his teachers said he could speak the language.
Obama said: Because I Lived In Indonesia, I Have More Foreign Experience
NONSENSE. He was there from the ages of 6 to 10, and couldn't even speak the language.
Obama said: I Am Stronger On Foreign Affairs
NONSENSE. Except for Africa and the Middle East - and his recent campaign-motivated visit to Europe - he has never been anywhere else on the planet, and thus has NO experience with our major allies, or our enemies.
Obama said: I Won't Run On A National Ticket in '08
LIE. Here he is, despite saying, live on TV, that he would not have enough experience by then, and that he is all about having experience first.
Obama said: I Was A Professor Of Law
LIE. He was a senior lecturer ON LEAVE.
Obama said:Without Me, There Would Be No Ethics Bill
PURE BS. He didn't write it, didn't introduce it, didn't change it.
Obama said: My Economics Bill Will Help America.
NONSENSE. His one hundred and eleven economic policies were combined into a proposal which lost 99-0, and even HE voted against his own bill.
Obama said: No One on my campaign contacted Canada about NAFTA.
BALD-FACED LIE.The Canadian Government has issued the names and a memo of the conversation his campaign officials had with them.
Obama said: "I passed 900 Bills in the State Senate
Obama said: "I Have Always Been Against Iraq
MORE BS. He wasn't in office to vote against it's authorization, and once in office, has voted to fund it every single time.
Obama said: My uncle liberated Auschwitz concentration camp
LIE. His mother had no brothers and the Russian army did the liberating.

You can verify all this information on GOOGLE, if you want to waste your time. There is more than enough information out there to demonstrate that the man is a fantasy-weaving and day-dreaming liar, and not made of the stuff needed for presidents.

Biden Turns On Obama

Say what?
WASHINGTON (AP) - Barack Obama's running mate says a campaign ad that mocked Republican presidential candidate John McCain as an out-of-touch, out-of-date computer illiterate was "terrible" and would not have been done had he known about it.
Short honeymoon. But those salt and pepper "marriages" have of way of blowing up more often than not, and Biden, a seasoned, long-time Washington politician, most likely is beginning to burn inside at being the "bridesmaid" to this youngish, inexperienced upstart of a Chicago machine politician, and it's starting to show.

I won't be surprised if Biden, who no doubt has his political career on his mind constantly, starts actively backing away from Obama and his rabid army of toxic and vicious Obots, who have already stepped way over many, many lines of decency in this campaign and will probably do much worse in the coming weeks.

Even Bill Clinton is making apologetic remarks about the incredibly toxic attacks on Sarah Palin:
My view is, why say, ever, anything bad about a person? Why don’t we like them and celebrate them and be happy for her elevation to the ticket? And just say that she was a good choice for him and we disagree with them?
You gotta shake your head in wonderment when Bill Clinton has to try to defuse some of Obama's horrid comments made by himself... or his disgusting Obots.

Our Choices

By John Cole
© 2008

Yessir, we got two major-party choices for our next President, two totally unqualified rejects that somehow have risen to the top of the pond, expressing how they will handle the largest financial disaster in history.

One must suppose that the bottom feeders stirred up the otherwise quite waters and allowed this unnatural event to occur - twice -once in each party.

I'm quite familiar with pond scum and wouldn't vote for it either.

Why Just Us? Victims Of A Worldwide Bailout Scheme

We are being told that if this trillion-dollar bailout to be paid for by the US taxpayer is not done, global banks will suffer, and we should bail them out also. Translated... even more bailout money, to be paid back by the U.S. taxpayer.

OK, if greedy banks in other nations climbed on the sub-prime mortgage market bandwagon and now have their cajones stretched out over the chopping block, let the countries that created those banks bail them out, NOT the U.S. Taxpayer, who really had nothing to do with all this financial flim-flammery, but who is now expected to pay for it all... worldwide.

That, or let those institutions go under, sell their assets to better managed and more sensible financial institutions. After all, all these "failed" banks and mortgage houses have multiple billions of dollars in assets. You have to remember that all those "worthless" mortgages are actually titles to millions of recently built homes, a massive reserve of real estate assets that will be recovered. Better to sell those assets, rather than hammer the American taxpayer into the ground. What they are not telling us is that there are thousands of banking and financial institutions that have not participated in this mortgage scam and are not going under, so the system will not collapse.

Poorly managed businesses - no matter their size - deserve to be eliminated and replaced, not bailed out by their cronies in government.

Keep in mind that billions and billions of these bailout dollars would be used to cover the asses of scam artists worldwide.

Just because a foreign bank had business dealings in the United States gives them no front-line privileges to the public trough. If they made bad decisions motivated by greed... let them pay the piper, not the U.S. taxpayer.

I say no to all of it. Take our medicine now, before we are beyond help. These expanding bailouts will put incredible strain on the U.S. money system:
The dollar will get ``crushed,'' as the extra spending reduces the allure of U.S. assets to foreign investors, said John Taylor, chairman of New York-based International Foreign Exchange Concepts Inc., the world's biggest currency hedge-fund firm.
In plain English, or as Bloomberg puts it, the dollar is "falling worldwide". That means the dollar is becoming more and more worthless, which also means that everything from food to gas will get more expensive here in dollarland.

Too much strain and the dollar will collapse. Like I say, better to take our medicine now, while there's still a chance to save the patient... us.

Marvelous, Just Freaking Marvelous

Can you believe this?
In a change from the original proposal sent to Capitol Hill, foreign-based banks with big U.S. operations could qualify for the Treasury Department’s mortgage bailout, according to the fine print of an administration statement Saturday night.
Now the American taxpayer has been put front and center to bail out any foreign bank that has been completely mismanaged and is failing.
Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson confirmed the change on ABC's "This Week," telling George Stephanopoulos that coverage of foreign-based banks is "a distinction without a difference to the American people."
What he meant to say was "A distinction without a difference to the stupid American people."

A difference I can rapidly point out is that the American people are the ones who will foot the bill, the billions and billions and billions being squandered in this supposed effort to protect the average American.

What is it going to take to demonstrate to those stubborn - but non-thinking - Bush supporters that the man has no interest or concern for them whatever? That everything he does - regardless of the rhetoric - is for the entrenched establishment of the "chosen" and the elite?

It's looking like a total meltddown and collapse is the only thing that will wake those people up, and even then, they will still be so uninformed and clueless - so far behind the curve - that they will not be able to prevent the same old gang of criminals from ramping up all over again.

$1,000,000,000,000 Bailout

The U.S. government is going to use one trillion dollars of taxpayer money - they say - to bailout these failed financial companies, in order to - they say - protect the average American.

But... and it's a BIG but... the U.S. government is broke, so by itself, it can't bail out anybody. The governments solution? Borrow the trillion dollars from other nations.

The Washington politicians are borrowing the money in order to stave off this looming financial and ecomonic disaster a bit longer, and as usual, will leave the taxpayer - us average Americans - holding the bag.

To the guys and gals inside the beltline, what's another trillion or so? They know and understand what the real national debt is, and that another trillion is not even a 2% increase of our total debt load.

If the U.S. government had the same accounting practices as those used in the business world, the country’s official national debt would be $59 trillion.

One must wonder how borrowing another trillion dollars to "protect the average American" from financial disaster is beneficial, since the average American - and his children - are going to be taxed for generations to pay back that 60 trillion along with it's incredible interest and unavoidable penalties, a financial disaster of epic proportions facing us all.

We already owe 59 trillion dollars to the rest of the world. The nations who have loaned us this money will want it back. It will take years of hard work and countless tons of product to be sold on the world market to pay all that back.

But wait... The Bushes, the Clinton's and the United States Congress have given away our jobs, our factories, our national ability to compete worldwide. You know... NAFTA, GAT, all those other "agreements" that have successfully destroyed our industrial base. So how can we generate 60 trillion dollars? Plus interest? The incredible debt this federal government has created?

We Can't. The federal government knows that, that why they plan on triggering the NAU, the North American Union, with its new money system, along with it's new rules and rulers that will be the real owners and masters of America.

We average Americans should "clean house" in Washington, get rid of those beltliners that have failed America and its citizens, and replace them with people who will put America first. Term limits for Congress would be a great start.

But we won't... Because the average American will listen to all the bimbos and talking heads on TV and will read all the financial "experts" writing in the Wall Street Journal, and be assured that "all is well".

We have - on this present course - perhaps one year left, before this all finally comes home to roost.

No News Here

Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama said on Friday he supported efforts by the U.S. Treasury and Federal Reserve to shore up confidence in the financial markets and said he would hold off from presenting his own economic recovery plan.
Yeah, right. He didn't support it last week, when he said about the Fed:
It must not bail out the shareholders or management of AIG.
If Obama has any sort of viable or workable plan to "recover" the ecomnony, I'll eat my Apollo 13 mission cap.

So far, his only "plan" has been to talk about his undisclosed "plan".

Speaking Of McCain.. And Lobbyists

Just where does Vicki Iseman fit in?

She pops up in a post-911 gig involving McCain, Saudi big-wig Las Vega playboys, and a possible "relationship".
The "tricked out" 727 figures in the current tempest over his relationship with female lobbyist Vicki Iseman, who provided and flew with McCain on the plane.
Vicki Iseman is a partner in the lobbying firm Alcalde & Fay, a lobbying firm based in Arlington, Virginia. The firm consists of over 35 former politicians, public relations specialists, lawyers, journalists, and corporate executives. A team of Alcalde & Fay associates and a senior partner handles clients. The firm practices in all areas of legislative affairs, communications, and government marketing.

Hecctor Alcalde founded the firm in 1973 and still serves as the company’s Chairman. Alcalde’s partner, Kevin J. Fay, serves as the firm’s President and specializes in environmental and energy affairs. Fay is also currently the Executive Director of the International Climate Change Partnership.

Oooooo... Executive Director of the International Climate Change Partnership... that may explain McCain's upside-down views on climate change.

From the New York Times:
For McCain, Self-Confidence on Ethics Poses Its Own Risk (February 20, 2008)

"Convinced the relationship had become romantic, some of his top advisers intervened to protect the candidate from himself — instructing staff members to block the woman’s access, privately warning her away and repeatedly confronting him, several people involved in the campaign said on the condition of anonymity."
The more you dig into this lobbyist stuff, the worse the stench surrounding McCain.

Tell Me Why

Senator McCain has - as one of his advisers - a registered lobbyist representing the State of Georgia, the one inside the Russian "sphere of influence".


Just what does John McCain - under the advice and guidance of this Georgian lobbyist - intend to do about Georgia... should he become president?

Having a registered lobbyist of a foreign State on the staff of any American political candidate smacks of conspiracy and collusion by that candidate, and sadly, indicates future compromise on the issues that will concern the best interests of America itself.

Not good... not good.

Will The Russians Control The Space Station?

A letter to the president from Senators Hutchinson, McCain and Vitter expresses concern over the upcoming cancellation of the Space Shuttle without a viable replacement online.

Presently, the United States has an agreement with Russia to "purchase" transport of American astronauts to the International Space Station using the Russian Soyuz spacecraft. Some feel that this "agreement" is sufficient to guarantee American participation in whatever is being conducted on board the space station.

However, if the Shuttle is cancelled without us having an operational replacement, the United States will be at the mercy of the whims of the Russian government for access. In times of tension between Russia and the United States, we may find ourselves locked out from any access at all.

Further, how will we repair and maintain our satellites without the Shuittle or its replacement? Does the federal government intend to just replace every one that fails? Those things take years to build and test, and waiting for any number of replacements for failed satellites could easily cripple our communications network for years.

The Russians have many times demonstrated that any agreement they make with the United states will be honored only so long as it is advantageous to them to do so.

If we shut down the Shuttle program without it's replacement up and operational, we are out of the space race... and any control of space we now possess.

Screw You... I'm Black

Josh Howard of the Dallas Mavericks:
'The Star-Spangled Banner' is going on. I don't celebrate this [expletive]. I'm black.
OK, as a "black" where does his allegiance lie? Cuba? Kenya? The Nation of Islam?

Is his attitude typical? Do most "black" people feel that way? Remember, Michelle Obama never felt proud of America until her "black" husband starting running for president.

With all the increasing empowerment of blacks around America, what does this portend for the country? A black led revolution?

America is indeed on thin ice.

Iran Will Not Be A Cakewalk

Russia is helping to improve the protection around Iran's nuclear power plants:
Russia is preparing to sell its S-300 surface-to-air missile system to Iran, offering greater protection against a possible US or Israeli attack on the Islamic republic's nuclear facilities. The missiles have a range of more than 150 kilometres and can intercept jets approaching at low altitudes.
It's not a first step:
Russia has already delivered 29 Tor-M1 missile systems under a $700 million deal with Iran in 2005.
When Israel attacks Iran, Israeli losses may be quite heavy, and they may not be able to knock out all the Iranian facilities. Israel's previous success's with its sudden airborne attacks is no guarantee that the strategy will work against a target that has been preparing for such and attack for years.

America's technological edge has been slipping for some time now, and a confrontation of American-supplied Israeli aircraft and weapons against the latest Russian-supplied anti-aircraft defenses will demonstrate how much slippage has really occurred.

It may be the real reason no attack has occurred to date.

Stay tuned.

A New Kind Of Illegal In America

These billions and billions in bailouts being passed out by the Fed and the treasury? Not a done deal, although many may think so. Congress must approve these handouts of taxpayer monies. Congress has not approved any of this... yet.

The Senate has passed a bill on the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac bailout, but the house has not yet acted, nor has the President signed it into law. Before any of all that money can be shoveled out, Congress will have to approve of it all.

Both Wall Street and the media act as if Congress's approval is a done deal, and indeed, that may be so.

Publicly, Congress has been acting angry and upset over this horrendous mis-use of taxpayer money. It's a gigantic sham, a huge cover-up - led by Nancy Pelosi - since every Senator and Representative inside the beltline knows the routine. Congress will no doubt approve of all these bailouts, since their services have already been bought and paid for by the special interests receiving this historical handout, the largest in the history of the world.

Wonder why a certain few selected companies have been the beneficiaries of literally hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars? And not others?

The answer may be what causes revolutions and revolt, so we ought not to go there, unless you're ready to do as founding father Thomas Jefferson recommended.

Mull this around in your skull for a minute... hundreds of billions of dollars. You cannot possibly get a handle on the incredible amount of money that really is, but what you can grasp is the fact that the federal government is in the process of borrowing - at this very moment - much of that money from the oil-rich Arabs and the free-trade rich Chinese, money which the next generation will have to pay back... plus interest.

And this federal government in Washington is planning on even more bailouts. Those hundreds of billions will turn into thousands of billions, and you and I are being served up as collateral.

America is treading on thin ice indeed.

Palin... Another Nutcase?

Is any of this true?

A pastor whose prayer Sarah Palin says helped her to become governor of Alaska founded his ministry with a witchhunt against a Kenyan woman who he accused of causing car accidents through demonic spells.

In video footage of the speech, she is seen saying:
As I was mayor and Pastor Muthee was here and he was praying over me, and you know how he speaks and he’s so bold. And he was praying “Lord make a way, Lord make a way.”

“And I’m thinking, this guy’s really bold, he doesn’t even know what I’m going to do, he doesn’t know what my plans are. And he’s praying not “oh Lord if it be your will may she become governor,” no, he just prayed for it. He said “Lord make a way and let her do this next step. And that’s exactly what happened.
Good grief. If this is all true, this woman doesn't need to be anywhere near Washington with a potential path to the nuclear football.

It may be just the Obots tossing more crap. Time will tell.

Nancy Pelosi, A liar For The Ages

Nancy Pelosi has ripped President Bush’s “mismanagement” of the economy and a lack of regulation that led to the current situation. Said she:
I think the American people have had it with this situation where the middle-income people in our country are not protected from the ramifications of the risk-taking and the greed of these financial institutions.
And just who, one might ask, has created all those regulations she is mentioning?

Congress. Pelosi. Her Democrat buddies. Her supposed enemies, the Republicans. As they all head for cover - stuffing their pockets with whatever is left of the available pool of lobbyist provided bribe money - they try to blame someone else.. anybody else.

Don't buy it. They're trying to save their own miserable skins, and to hell with you.

What I would like to believe is that the American people have "had it" with the scum we have sent to Washington. These few hundred people have sold out an entire nation... our nation.

A massive public hanging on the steps on Congress would be a good start to a better and more responsible government.

Really. But I'd settle for 600 or so lifetime prison sentences in a place like Attica, bread and water only... with no chance for parole.


Congress is loudly proclaiming that this mess isn't of their doing, that it's all the President's fault.

That's total crap.... it is the Congress - and it's bought and sold members - that have created the laws and regulations that allowed all this to happen, not the president, not us, not the aliens from Mars.

If anyone should be taken out and hung from the nearest lamppost for this, it is those very members of Congress loudly proclaiming their innocence as you read this post.

They are the ones - the greedy little cretins who have been purchased by massive campaign donations and untraceable Swiss bank accounts - that have allowed these things to happen by massaging the rules to benefit those few that have been plundering the United States for decades.

But I sometimes wonder why I even bother to point all this out. Most of our simpleminded and gullible citizens will only be able to utter banalities like "whut happened?", the sheepish Christians will gather in prayer groups and predict the rapture is nigh, and the more intelligent of us will believe they have planned for everything and will escape the coming tidal wave.

It is Congress - and the members within - that have allowed all this to happen, they are the ones who have cooperated with the plunderers... for nothing more than their miserable 30 pieces of silver.

Yes folks, it is Congress that has done all this, the very people you and I sent to Washington to represent us, to serve and protect this nation. They are the ones who have sold us all down the river.

Don't Worry... Your Money Is Safe


Well, hell yes, my money is insured by the FDIC duuude...

Turns out the FDIC is running out of money , the money they use to protect your bank accounts.

For those who still don't get it, our money system is collapsing. Your money isn't safe, and your stocks and bonds are turning into toilet paper, as the few individuals and organizations that precipitated this disaster try to plug the giant holes in this sinking ship to give them time to head for the lifeboats, using - of all things - your money and your creditworthiness. And guess what? There's only enough lifeboats for them.

Look at Russia today... they have shut down their entire money system for the second day in a row.

The financial policies we have been following for years have been short-term policies good at the time, but disastrous in the long term.

Well, the long term has arrived, and nobody has what it will take to pay the piper, and by the time the general public finally knows who is responsible for all this, the sons-of-bitches will be long gone and unreachable... with untold billions of our dollars.

Forget trying to save the ship folks, just hope the water isn't too deep... because we're all going to take a swim.

The Expanding War

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) — Pakistan's military has ordered its forces to open fire if U.S. troops launch another air or ground raid across the Afghan border, an army spokesman said Tuesday.
The orders, which come in response to a highly unusual Sept. 3 ground attack by U.S. commandos, are certain to heighten tensions between Washington and a key ally against terrorism.
One must wonder why Washington still considers Pakistan a "key ally", since Osama Bim Laden has found solace and comfort in Pakistan since almost day one.

Suppose Hitler had escaped Germany and settled down in one of America's states. Do you think - that after eight years - Europe would still consider the US as a "key ally"?

Yes. yes... the Pakistanis have nukes. Big deal. We have more, many more, and multiple ways to deliver them - on target - anywhere in the world. A one-toothed dog would have to be really stupid to attack a much larger dog with a full set of nasty dentures.

What so many people fail to understand is that the United States has the biggest stick in the world and has successfully demonstrated it's willingness to swing it.

The time is fast approaching when the Pakistani government must either cough up Osama, or declare war against us. All other options are quickly vanishing.

Obama and McCain... What They're Thinking

The spiffy little bimbos in TV land are asking what Obama and McCain are thinking about on this financial and economic cesspool we find ourselves neck deep in.

It ain't rocket science folks...

They're both glad as hell that it happened before they become president, since neither one has a clue about what to do.

Clueless Chicago Machine Obams says don't look for bailouts(which have already occurred) and wants more governmental control, and clueless beltliner McCain wants a commission to investigate and wants more governmental control, a insider response if ever there was one.

They both realize that Bush - and his legacy - are toast anyway, so he might as well take all the heat, and believe me, they're going to do a lot of finger pointing(justified) his way, particularly since both of them are active members of Congress and don't want that august(lol) body to start getting too much attention.

The Wall Street Two-Step

Wall Street is going through another "adjustment".

But not to worry folks, it's just another one of it's predictable and cyclic maneuvers where excess cash is funneled away to disappear forever from the accounts of millions of investors who think they are financially astute.

You gotta understand that all those millions and millions of working Americans who have been pouring trillions of real dollars into their "retirement" accounts are providing unheard of amounts to money to plunder.

If you listen to the talking heads and bimbos on TV, all that money is just "vanishing". Righto... straight into the pockets of people you will never - ever- hear... or know of.

And yes... all this has been caused by us. We've been buying houses we can't afford. Somehow - with our bad credit and low-paying jobs - we have foolishly overextended ourselves on housing, and those totally innocent banks and mortgage institutions are the actual victims in all this.



One million homes are sold and one million mortgages are created. Those mortgages are then sold to holding companies. Real money changes hands, a lot of it. Then, those one million home owners find themselves behind the eight ball and get foreclosed on. One million mortgages are now worthless paper. Those institutions that bought all that paper collapse, and their stock holders are hammered, possibly destroyed. Somebody else steps in, buys the now worthless mortgages, actually the titles to those one million homes, for pennies on the dollar.

Vast amounts of money was made when those mortgages were originally sold. Where is that money now? Gone. Or "vanished, as the TV bimbos like to say.

The new owners of those one million foreclosed homes now own vast amounts of real property which they bought for next to nothing. They will make obscene amounts of money when they eventually re-sell. And the 401K crowd? They're left wondering whether they will actually have enough left to retire on.

Short answer? No.

Because this cycle will repeat again and again, just as it has in the past, but not with housing as the mechanism. It'll be something else, but it will happen.

S.S. Google

Google may take to the high seas with the launch of its own "computer navy”.
The company is considering deploying the supercomputers necessary to operate its internet search engines on barges anchored up to seven miles offshore.

The “water-based data centres” would use wave energy to power and cool their computers, reducing Google’s costs.
What a hoot... Wave energy.

Wave energy - at its present level of development, could provide enough energy to run their coffee pot, but to get enough energy to run and cool their computers? Not a chance.

More realistically, maybe Google should place its data centers close to large bodies of water, like nuclear reactors, which also generate massive amounts of heat.

Even better, put them near a nuclear reactor where both cooling water and energy are readily available.

However, the real issue here is government regulation, not operating expenses. Every government on the planet us trying to control the internet and put a stop to its free flow of information, much of it detrimental to politicians and governments in general. The "seven miles" comment is just a red herring, they would actually be anchored a bit beyond the 12-mile territorial limit.

Its not energy or heat that's the problem... it's the government's endless attempts at control and regulation. The dirty rotten thieving bastards in Washington and on Wall Street just can't allow the average man on the street to become... informed.

Searching For The Bottom - And Beyond

This from former Air America host Randi Rhodes, explaining to her listeners on Friday who she thinks Alaska Gov. Palin is:
She's the woman who shows up at the kid's birthday party and starts opining about everything from politics to lawn care. This is the woman that knows it all. Will shout you down, will get revenge on you. That's who she is.

She's friends with all the teenage boys. You have to say no when your kids say, 'Can we sleep over at the Palins'? No! No!
What else will these people say or do do try to trash this woman?

Unfortunately, I think we are going to find out.

Sarah and the Media

The WND daily poll asked:

What do you think of the way the media has been treating Sarah Palin?

Leading answer at the time of this posting:
Palin represents everything the establishment media has been trying to tear down for decades -- they're beside themselves.
Hmmmm... and what would that be?

Well... she is a married woman, a working woman with five kids who is in a position of real power and authority, a woman who is wildly popular, loves to hunt and is competent with firearms, and at 44 could still wear a bikini and turn heads on the beach.

She's not the classic "single Mom with a loving daughter", no husband or son - no men to be found anywhere in her life - except for those needed to fill the roles as idiotic and menial servants or the obligatory floor mat used to assert her "power" over.

No "single" narcissistic female with an adoring daughter intentionally conceived in an out-of-wedlock sexfest. No same-sex "union". She's married - legally - to a man of her own race, no salt and pepper blend here with some "what am I?" kids, a man who is a champion in his chosen sport, not some sluggish couch potato worried about which detergent to use for the laundry.

She has five kids, all born with a Mom and Dad on the birth certificate - and the marriage certificate - has not had any aborted, even the one she knew would have Downs Syndrome.

A woman of power. She is an elected governor that has successfully faced down many of the embedded crooks and cretins in the Alaskan government and business worlds.

Wildly popular? She has an approval rating of 80%, higher than anybody the media has ever supported or championed.

She is not afraid of a citizen with a gun... she is a citizen with a gun.

She is not some fat, obese slug slouching around with a quart of diet cola in her hand, not some sharp-tongued uneducated glob of fat whining about how beautiful she really is on the inside.

No wonder the media can't stand her. After decades of promoting homosexuality, lesbianism, abortion, mixed marriages, decades of ridiculing the stay-at-home Mom, along comes Sarah... a woman who can set them back to ground zero... where - my wife says - they really deserve to be.

So she may - metaphorically - have a few zits or pimples on her butt. But what the hell... so do I.

Whoopie Waaaaay Over The Line

Whoopie Goldberg, in a classic demonstration of her over-the-top "blackness", asked John McCain:
Should I be worried about being a slave, about being returned to slavery because certain things happened in the Constitution that you had to change.
A crack like that is so far out of line it's hard to imagine she actually said it, but she did.

She's worried about being "returned" to slavery?

Somebody show me where Whoopie Goldberg ever spent a second of her life as a "slave".

Life Oprah, she has benefited beyond her wildest dreams by being a black in America, and like Danny Glover, just can't keep from insulting and slamming the nation and people who made it all possible.

That sort of conduct - a cheap shot of the worst order - by one of America's rich and privileged blacks does stoke the fires... a lot.

To John McCain's credit, he didn't tell her to stuff it up her a**.

But he should have.

Co-Ed Showers

What happens when you put naked 18 or 19 year-old boys into a shower with naked 18 or 19 year-old girls? Particularly when they are all away from home... in a college environment?

I imagine most of us already know the answer, but the State of Maryland seems to be having some problems figuring it out.

You may note - from the highlighted article - that a group called Equality Maryland, an activist group for homosexuals, which did not want voters to have their say, is behind most of this. They apparantly want your daughter to not only get a college education, but have a baby or two in the process, plus cash in on a few lifelong STD's.

I would not be too surprised if some enraged fathers in Maryland got together and sent a bunch of these "Equality Maryland" nutcakes to the happy hunting grounds, because at some point, the final limit will be exceeded, and the lid will come off.

Give Us Some Bombs, Dammit!

We want to go bomb a bunch of stuff!

This from Haaretz.com, a pro-Jewish mouthpiece:
The security aid package the United States has refused to give Israel for the past few months out of concern that Israel would use it to attack nuclear facilities in Iran included a large number of "bunker-buster" bombs, permission to use an air corridor to Iran, an advanced technological system and refueling planes.
The neocons must be besides themselves with anger and shock. President Bush actually refused Israel something they wanted to keep their sixty-year-old war of occupation on the front burner.

It's akin to telling the pugnacious little bully down the block: "No more rocks for you, you've broken too many windows already".

Catholic Bishops... And Crocodile Tears

US Roman Catholic bishops on Wednesday charged that immigration raids on US workplaces break up families and disrupt communities, without addressing the country's flawed immigration system.

First off, our immigration system is NOT flawed, it has served us well for many years. What is flawed is the federal governments handling of our problem with this massive illegal invasion, this "Reconquista", as some rabid Mexican Nationals like to call it, the ongoing attempt to reconquer the American southwest and make it a part of a "greater" Mexico.

Secondly, the issue of 12 to 20 million illegal aliens having stolen across our borders is not an immigration problem, it is a lack-of-law-enforcement problem.

Finally, the Catholic Church knows full and well they are promoting lawlessness and crime by supporting these border-jumping, identity-stealing law-breakers from Mexico and other non-English-speaking countries.

Now these teary-eyed Catholic Anarchists are whining about us finally starting to enforce our law by deporting a few of these law breakers, thus causing the Catholic Church to lose a substantial chunk of their faithful flock (since Mexicans are mostly Catholic)... along with a lot of their influence in the community, and a large chunk of their income.

These errant Catholics will not willingly change their ways until a few of have had the opportunity to reflect on their conduct in a federal prison for a few years. These individuals will not be martyrs - though they may believe so - they will just be law-breakers paying for their actions.

Personally, I vote we send those illegal-loving Catholics south along with their flocks. They can tend to the spiritual needs of these Mexican Nationals in Mexico, just as easily as they can here, and at the same time, prove their dedication to their church and beliefs.

If they refuse to go, then it's prison time.

Russian Bombers Visit Chavez

MOSCOW (Reuters)
Two Russian long-range bombers capable of carrying nuclear weapons will return to base from Venezuela in four days, the Russian Air Force was quoted by Interfax news agency as saying on Thursday.

The Russian Tu-180 sweep-wing bomber, above, looks a lot like the American B-1 sweep-wing bomber, below, with a few cosmetic changes to boost the Russian ego and bolster their bragging rights.

Gee, how could that be?

Realistically, the Russians did not have to steal the plans of the B1 - like they did the B-29 of WW2 fame(The Russian TU-4), the F-14(The Russian MIG25 Foxbat), the space shuttle(The Russian Buran) and others - they just waited until some American traitor handed them over.

No Black Hole

The Hadron Collider successfully conducted it's first test, and no black hole appeared to suck us all into infinity.

Wake Up Christians,Obama Is Lying

You have a defiler in your midst... And his name is:

Barak Obama, speaking to ABC's George Stephanopoulos on "This Week," was talking about what he described as "smears" that were claiming he was a Muslim when he maintains he is a practicing Christian. Said Obama:
Let's not play games. What I was suggesting – you're absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith. And you're absolutely right that that has not come.
Of course, Stephanopoulos, media team player that he is, immediately jumped in a "corrected" Obama.

A Freudian slip? An Id skid? Slip of the tongue?

Whatever - despite all those claims to the contrary - he let slip that he is not a Christian.

But It's Not Racism

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Monday it was "unacceptable" that there were so few black people like herself in the US diplomatic corps.
I want to see a Foreign Service that looks as if black Americans are part of this great country.
Rice told that to a gathering of blacks (what else) in Washington.
I have lamented that I can go into a meeting at the Department of State, and, as a matter of fact, I can go into a whole day of meetings at the Department of State and actually rarely see somebody who looks like me, and that's just not acceptable.
Perhaps the lack of fellow blacks in the State Department has something to do with IQ and talent, but Ms. Rice is not concerned about that... She is concerned that so many don't "look like me"... As in black skinned.

And damned if that ain't racism.

65 mpg... And You Can't Have One

Ford is building a car that gets 65 mpg that will not be sold in the United states, because Ford believes Americans will not buy a diesel powered car. More to the point, Ford claims they can't afford to sell the car here.

Ford's Fiesta ECOnetic, which gets an astonishing 65 mpg

Ford claims it needs 350 million to build a plant(in Mexico or America) that can produce the diesel engine - currently mostly hand-crafted in Britain and waaay too expensive - that comes with this car... and Ford claims they cannot afford it.

How many things can you count that are wrong - totally upside down - with this story?

Bend over America, Ford and the Europeans/British are getting ready to put it to you, while that idiot Bush and our sold-out Congress do nothing but argue over drilling.

Why Am I Not Surprised?

Oprah does not want Sarah Palin on her show:
Oprah Winfrey may have introduced Democrat Barack Obama to the women of America -- but the talkshow queen is not rushing to embrace the first woman on a Republican presidential ticket!

Oprah's staff is sharply divided on the merits of booking Sarah Palin, sources tell the DRUDGE REPORT.

"Half of her staff really wants Sarah Palin on," an insider explains. "Oprah's website is getting tons of requests to put her on, but Oprah and a couple of her top people are adamantly against it because of Obama."

One executive close to Winfrey is warning any Palin ban could ignite a dramatic backlash!

It is not clear if Oprah has softened her position after watching Palin's historic convention speech.

Last year, Winfrey blocked an appearance by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, timed to a promotional tour of his autobiography.

Oprah and executive producer Sheri Salata, who has contributed thousands of dollars to Obama's campaign, refused requests for comment.
Thanks to the DRUDGE REPORT for this little jewel.

By Whose Authority?

TBILISI, Georgia (AP) - Demonstrating Washington's commitment to beleaguered Georgia, U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney flew in Thursday and condemned Russia for what he called an "illegitimate, unilateral attempt" to redraw Georgia's borders by force.

Note the article says "Washington's commitment", not America's commitment.

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice:
The free world cannot allow the destiny of a small independent country to be determined by the aggression of a larger neighbor.
Like what the United States has been doing In Iraq? And she babbles on about the "free world". What other "free world" nation is confronting the Russians in this rapidly escalating and highly dangerous situation?

U.S. Vice President Cheney:
Now it is the responsibility of the free world to rally to the side of Georgia.
There's that "free world" crap again. Who decided that? Show me the treaties, approved by the United States Congress as required by law, that commits this nation and it's military forces to such a thing.

When was it cast in stone that the United States must now defend a small satellite state that the Russians consider as in their sphere of influence, one that they are willing to use military force to keep in line?

More importantly, who decided this... and why?

Let's Start Another War...

... This time with Russia.

A US navy vessel has steamed into a Georgian port where Russian troops are still stationed, stoking tensions once again in the tinderbox Caucasus region.

The USS MOUNT WHITNEY (LCC/JCC 20) serves as the Command Ship for Commander, SIXTH Fleet/ Commander, Joint Command Lisbon/Commander, Striking Force NATO.

The arrival of the USS Mount Whitney came as Moscow accused Dick Cheney, the hawkish US vice-president, of stoking tensions during a visit to Tbilisi yesterday, in which he vowed to bring Georgia into the Nato alliance. Russia sees any such move as a blatant Western encroachment on its traditional sphere of influence.

What the hell is this government doing? What has Georgia, a long-time satellite country of Russia's and within it's sphere of influence, got that Bush and Cheney would risk open confrontation with Russia?

Well, like I said in the previous post, it has - or had - two airfields that the Jews were going to use to attack Iran, that there are many Jews in Georgia, many more who "immigrated" to Israel that may want to go back. Israel and the Jews are under every woodpile in this mess, so what I see here is another example of the Jewish tail wagging the American dog.

Want to have a full-fledged war with Russia to keep the Jews happy? Because that's exactly what we are risking here.

Those of you who still think that Israel does not interfere with, or control American foreign policy need to start reconsidering your position, and decide if Jewish religious beliefs are worth another world war, most likely a nuclear war.

Sarah Palin

I really enjoyed Sarah Palin's speech. Much more than a breath of fresh air, more like a hurricane of fresh air. This woman has a whole lot on the ball, a ton of good things to recommend her for national office.

However, she and John McCain together are a lot like a steak smothered in steak sauce. He's the steak, she's the sauce.

Only one problem... While the sauce is world-class, the steak will give you a bad case of the runs.

Or like my wife says... She's the candy on the apple, but the apple is full of worms.

What a damn shame.

Explain This

You have probably heard of the other Georgia, the one on the Russian border, portions of which the Russians just invaded and occupied?

So what the hell was that all about?

Well, on July 4, 2006 George W.Bush, president of the United States, signed an agreement with Israel that the Israelis could use the two airfields in southern Georgia to launch attacks against Iran.

Turns out that during the recent Russian attack, they bombed the hell out of those two airfields, effectively ending any attempt by Israel to attack Iran using those facilities.

Just how is it that George Bush had the authority to give permission to the Israelis to use these two now destroyed Georgian airfields?

The plot thickens...

We now learn that over 1,000 Israeli "advisers" were in Georgia, under the command of an ex-Israeli Defense Force brigadier general named Gel Hirsch, to train and equip the Georgian army, just like we did in Viet Nam.

Turns out that the Georgian Prime Mister Gugenidze - at the time - was/is a Jew who even spoke Hebrew, that there are thousands of ex-Georgian Jews that have immigrated to - where else - Israel, and that Georgia had a large Jewish population, many occupying positions of power and influence in the government.

Further, United States President George Bush had authorized the construction of an oil pipeline (built with American taxpayer dollars) called the CEHYAN pipe line in Georgia, but owned partially by Israel. It would now appear that Georgia was, in actually, populated and controlled by a large contingent of Jews, working in concert with the American Federal government and Tel Aviv - in secret - to control more and more of the world's oil, and to eliminate the Iranian threat to Israel.

The Russian incursion and defacto occupation of Georgia has put and end to the Israeli/American influence in the area.

Of interest to those who pay attention... after Bush gave the Israelis "permission" to use those airfields in 2006, the Russians provided modern SA 300 air defense systems to Iran, to protect their northern border from an Israeli attack.

It is now obvious that Russia will not allow America and Israel to continue their dangerous game of corruption and control in this Russian sphere of influence, even if the use of military force is required... A real warning to us all.

Those carrier battle groups massing in the gulf just may be lame-duck Bush's knee-jerk response to losing those airfields, and an indication of how unhinged and unstable the man really is.

If you believe that George W. Bush - while still president - will not authorize or initiate an attack on Iran, keep in mind his intentions on July 4, 2006, when he gave the Jews to go-ahead to attack Iran.

It would be most welcome if Americans started demanding answers to all this mind-boggling skulduggery, but don't hold your breath... way too many Americans are under the illusion that today's Israel is populated by God's Chosen people, that whatever they may do, it is all part of God's plan, and that whatever they do - no matter how evil - must not be questioned.

Just thought you'd like to know what our lame-duck president is about to get us into.

The Sky Is Falling!

Here we go again:
Scientists sue to stop a 'black hole' from sucking up Earth
They fear experiments could create 'vacuum' and consume the planet.

A European court(a batch of non-scientists) says the idea a new supercollider project could create a "celestial vacuum" and eventually consume the Earth is worth discussing, but the project can move forward on schedule anyway.

At dispute is what could happen should planned experiments at the supercollider built near Geneva by the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, go awry when the massive atomic particle smasher is fired up about this time next week.

A few details:

-1) A black hole is created when a sun, much larger than ours -after having consumed up its fuel - collapses in on itself due the gravitational forces involved. We're talking about gravitational forces thousands of times more powerful than anything on Earth, or even possible to create on Earth.

-2)The Earth, our solar system, including our sun, does not have enough mass to generate the gravitational forces required to create even a small, self-sustainable black hole.

And there's the rub: Self-sustainable. The Hadron collider may indeed create a black hole for a micro-instant of time, but it will be far, far too small to sustain itself. It will not have the necessary mass required to generate a gravitational field strong enough to stay viable and to start sucking in the Earth.

If these "scientists" who have sued to stop the Hadron collider are a part of the development team, they should be fired yesterday.

Now Comes The Question...

Did McCain pick another "Israel first" Jew?

You decide.

Chabad of Anchorage’s Rabbi Yosef Greenberg:
Gov. Palin has established a great relationship with the Jewish community over the years and has attended several of our Jewish cultural gala events. Gov. Palin also had plans to visit Israel with members of the Jewish community, however, for technical reason, the visit has not occurred yet.
Rob Eshman (Huntingon Post) quotes Congressman Robert Wexler (D-FL)
John McCain's decision to select a vice presidential running mate that endorsed Pat Buchanan for President in 2000 is a direct affront to all Jewish Americans.
You can get opinions that point in every direction just by querying the Internet.

Will she actually Visit Israel with a gaggle of Alaskan Jews? If so - to be fair and balanced - will she also visit Mexico City with a bunch of Alaskan Mexicans? Or visit Saigon with some Alaskan Vietnamese?

It's her track record that tells us what she stands for, and so far, it indicates she is a bit overly pro-Jewish, perhaps because of a skewed Christian upbringing that stressed the O.T. while glossing over the N.T. That's no big deal, IF she puts America first in every decision she makes as a political leader.

The vital question is not about religion, but about worldwide political realities: How would she vote when the time comes to cut Israel loose to let it sink or swim on it's own merits? That time is coming, and we Americans, not Jewish Americans, not Mexican Americans, not African Americans, just us ordinary Americans, should - at the very least - be prepared for the consequences of such a vote... one way of the other.

Sad... But True

Vox is correct :
While McCain-Palin is a much more effective electoral pairing than McCain-Romney or McCain-Lieberman would have been, it must also be acknowledged that a McCain-Palin administration will not be substantively different than a McCain-Romney or a McCain-Lieberman one. While Sarah Palin will indubitably look better at state funerals than the older male alternatives, it's impossible to argue that John McCain will be any less likely to invade sovereign nations, increase government spending or grant immigration amnesties to invaders from the Third World due to her holding down the vice presidency.
I would have no problem voting for a Palin-McCain ticket, with McCain as the VP nominee. But as it stands, her selection as his VP appears to be nothing more than a tossed bone to the conservatives, who have nowhere to turn this election.

Glass ceiling breaking notwithstanding, her selection is the Republicans version of the "trophy wife".

But who knows? Cheney was the most active VP in history. If Palin can follow in his footsteps, she just may be able to keep McCain's feet to the fire - along with his tag-along neocon handlers.

If that's the case, let's just hope she won't end up like Vince Foster.
