Obama Considers Civil War? Orders 1 Million Troops to Prepare?

Wow!
"Russian Military Analysts are reporting to Prime Minister Putin that US President Barack Obama has issued orders to his Northern Command’s (USNORTHCOM) top leader, US Air Force General Gene Renuart, to “begin immediately” increasing his military forces to 1 million troops by January 30, 2010, in what these reports warn is an expected outbreak of civil war within the United States before the end of winter.
According to these reports, Obama has had over these past weeks “numerous” meetings with his war council about how best to manage the expected implosion of his Nations banking system while at the same time attempting to keep the United States military hegemony over the World in what Russian Military Analysts state is a “last ditch gambit” whose success is “far from certain”.




Have no idea how accurate this is, but it's sure to fire up speculation over the coming days.

What the Huck? Huckabee not Responsible for Clemmon's Act

A lot of the anti-Huckabee crowd want to blame this on him for granting clemency in 1990.

 "Maurice Clemmons, the 37-year-old Tacoma man being sought for questioning in the killing this morning of four Lakewood police officers, has a long criminal record punctuated by violence, erratic behavior and concerns about his mental health.
 Nine years ago, then-Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee granted clemency to Clemmons, commuting his lengthy prison sentence over the protests of prosecutors. "This is the day I've been dreading for a long time," Larry Jegley, prosecuting attorney for Arkansas' Pulaski County said tonight when informed that Clemmons was being sought for questioning in connection with the killings.
 Clemmons' criminal history includes at least five felony convictions in Arkansas and at least eight felony charges in Washington. The record also stands out for the number of times he has been released from custody despite questions about the danger he posed.

Iran Plans 10 More Uranium Plants

Via Fox.

 "TEHRAN, Iran — The Iranian government approved a plan Sunday to build 10 new uranium enrichment facilities, a dramatic expansion in defiance of U.N. demands it halt the program.
 The decision comes only two days after the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency censured Iran, demanding it immediately stop building a newly revealed enrichment facility near the holy city of Qom and freeze all uranium enrichment activities.
 A Cabinet meeting headed by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad ordered the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran to begin building five uranium enrichment sites that have already been studied and propose five other locations for future construction within two months.
 In Vienna, spokeswoman Gillian Tudor said the U.N.'s International Atomic Energy Agency would have no comment. But the announcement is likely to stoke already high tensions between Iran and the West over its controversial nuclear activities.
 Iran has one industrial-scale uranium enrichment plant nea…

Bush Lost Bin Laden?

Old news.

 "Osama Bin Laden was within military reach when the Bush administration allowed him to disappear into the mountains of Afghanistan rather than pursue him with a massive military force, a new Senate report says.
 The report asserts that the failure to get the terrorist leader when he was at his most vulnerable in December 2001 - three months after the 9/11 attacks - led to today's reinvigorated insurgency in Afghanistan.
 Sen. John Kerry, Massachusetts senator and 2004 Democratic presidential candidate, requested the report, which came as President Obama prepares to send as many as 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan. Kerry has long argued the Bush administration botched an opportunity to capture the Al Qaeda leader and his top deputies when they were holed up in the forbidding mountainous area of Tora Bora.
 The report calls then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and Gen. Tommy Franks, the top military commander at the time, to the carpet and asserts the U.S. had th…

Climategate - Scientist Dumped Data To Hide Truth that Global Warming Wasn't Taking Place

As in any crime, the getting rid of the evidence amounts to an admission of guilt.
"SCIENTISTS at the University of East Anglia (UEA) have admitted throwing away much of the raw temperature data on which their predictions of global warming are based.
It means that other academics are not able to check basic calculations said to show a long-term rise in temperature over the past 150 years. The UEA’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU) was forced to reveal the loss following requests for the data under Freedom of Information legislation.
The data were gathered from weather stations around the world and then adjusted to take account of variables in the way they were collected. The revised figures were kept, but the originals — stored on paper and magnetic tape — were dumped to save space when the CRU moved to a new building.
The admission follows the leaking of a thousand private emails sent and received by Professor Phil Jones, the CRU’s director. In them he discusses thwarting clim…

Where is the Hate Crime Charge in the Gladney Beating?

Charges have finally been filed, via Gateway Pundit.

"ST. LOUIS COUNTY • Six people arrested in August outside a raucous town hall meeting in south St. Louis County have been charged with misdemeanor ordinance violations. The six, including a Post-Dispatch reporter, had attended a demonstration outside an Aug. 6 forum called by U.S. Rep. Russ Carnahan, D-St. Louis, at Bernard Middle School in Mehlville to discuss health care reform.
The charges were filed Tuesday by the St. Louis County counselor’s office, which prosecutes misdemeanor ordinance violations in unincorporated areas. All are to appear in court Jan. 21. The maximum penalty upon conviction would be one year in jail and a $1,000 fine. Some bloggers have been writing for months about the lag between the arrests at the politically-charged event and the filing of charges.
County Counselor Patricia Redington insisted it had nothing to do with politics, influence or pressure from any official. "These charges are …

Climate-Gate Grows

Via Watts Up with That:

 "The New Zealand Government’s chief climate advisory unit NIWA is under fire for allegedly massaging raw climate data to show a global warming trend that wasn’t there. The scandal breaks as fears grow worldwide that corruption of climate science is not confined to just Britain’s CRU climate research centre. In New Zealand’s case, the figures published on NIWA’s [the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric research] website suggest a strong warming trend in New Zealand over the past century.



But Does it?

















Watts UP notes:


"Straight away you can see there’s no slope—either up or down. The temperatures are remarkably constant way back to the 1850s. Of course, the temperature still varies from year to year, but the trend stays level—statistically insignificant at 0.06°C per century since 1850. Putting these two graphs side by side, you can see huge differences. What is going on? Why does NIWA’s graph show strong warming, but graphing their own raw …

Damn Right I Punched the Dirtbag in the Nose!

Now for your "Who gives a flying ...."
"Navy SEALs have secretly captured one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq — the alleged mastermind of the murder and mutilation of four Blackwater USA security guards in Fallujah in 2004.
And three of the SEALs who captured him are now facing criminal charges, sources told FoxNews.com... . Ahmed Hashim Abed, whom the military code-named "Objective Amber," told investigators he was punched by his captors — and he had the bloody lip to prove it.
Now, instead of being lauded for bringing to justice a high-value target, three of the SEAL commandos, all enlisted, face assault charges and have retained lawyers. Matthew McCabe, a Special Operations Petty Officer Second Class (SO-2), is facing three charges: dereliction of performance of duty for willfully failing to safeguard a detainee, making a false official statement, and assault.
Petty Officer Jonathan Keefe, SO-2, is facing charges of dereliction of performance of …

After Twiddling His Thumbs for 10 Months - Obama Makes a Decision on Afghanistan

Well what do you know, the commander and delay has made a decision which has been a no-brainer all along.
"WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama met Monday evening with his national security team to finalize a plan to dispatch some 34,000 additional U.S. troops over the next year to what he's called "a war of necessity" in Afghanistan, U.S. officials told McClatchy.
Obama is expected to announce his long-awaited decision on Dec. 1, followed by meetings on Capitol Hill aimed at winning congressional support amid opposition by some Democrats who are worried about the strain on the U.S. Treasury and whether Afghanistan has become a quagmire, the officials said.
The U.S. officials all spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to discuss the issue publicly and because, one official said, the White House is incensed by leaks on its Afghanistan policy that didn't originate in the White House.
They said the commander of the U.S.-led internation…

Special Prosecutor Needed for Americorps Firing

Byron York who has done the job the MSM won't do, on the illegal firing of Americorps IG Gerald Walpin has found.

 "Just hours after Sen. Charles Grassley and Rep. Darrell Issa released a report Friday on their investigation into the abrupt firing of AmeriCorps inspector general Gerald Walpin, the Obama White House gave the lawmakers a trove of new, previously-withheld documents on the affair.  It was a twist on the now-familiar White House late-Friday release of bad news; this time, the new evidence was put out not only at the start of a weekend but also hours too late for inclusion in the report. The new documents support the Republican investigators' conclusion that the White House's explanation for Walpin's dismissal -- that it came after the board of the Corporation for National and Community Service, which oversees AmeriCorps, unanimously decided that Walpin must go -- was in fact a public story cobbled together after Walpin was fired, not before.   Walpin …

Good News We're Defeating Obamacare

Just in case you might miss it, we're winning the fight against Obamacare, against socialism.  Can you smell it?   It's the smell of victory.

They recognize it too.   Howard (The Scream) Dean:
"One of the leading progressive champions of health care reform is pessimistic about the state of the debate in the Senate, saying he sees virtually no path to passing strong legislation and predicting potential congressional losses for Democrats as a consequence.
Former DNC Chair Howard Dean told the Huffington Post on Monday that Senate Democratic leadership was "in deep trouble" on health care, even after Majority Leader Harry Reid cobbled together over the weekend the 60 votes needed to get legislation to the floor. The problem was as much about politics as policy.
"I think if you passed the Senate bill tomorrow it would be OK. But then the problem is they don't have any defense for their members in 2010," Dean said, noting that the public option would no…

Getting "Purity" Right

Yet another "moderate" whines:

"Those calling for ideological purity have a short memory.
Helms was repeatedly angry and frustrated at President Ronald Reagan, who would provide only lip service to such issues as abortion and school prayer.
And it was Reagan who signed a nuclear arms reduction treaty with Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev.
 This is actually an old debate.
During the 1970s and 1980s, the state Republican Party was often torn by factional warfare between Helms-style conservatives and more traditional Republicans. I was present in 1988 at a GOP convention in Franklin County in which a riot broke out, with multiple fistfights.
 The Republican Party grew rapidly in the '60s, '70s and '80s in North Carolina by courting conservative Democrats. But North Carolina has maintained the strongest Democratic Party in the South during the past decade by siphoning off moderate Starbucks Republicans.
As conservative British Prime Minister HaroldMcMillan (…

The New York Times Prepares the Defense of Hasan

But of course you could expect nothing less from the rag that divulges our secrets for kicks.

This smuck, Robert Wright, asks "Who created Major Hasan?"

 "IN the case of Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan and the Fort Hood massacre, the verdict has come in. The liberal news media have been found guilty — by the conservative news media — of coddling Major Hasan’s religion, Islam. Liberals, according to the columnist Charles Krauthammer, wanted to medicalize Major Hasan’s crime — call it an act of insanity rather than of terrorism. They worked overtime, Mr. Krauthammer said on Fox News, to “avoid any implication that there was any connection between his Islamist beliefs ... and his actions.” The columnist Jonah Goldberg agrees. Admit it, he wrote in The Los Angeles Times, Major Hasan is “a Muslim fanatic, motivated by other Muslim fanatics.”  The good news for Mr. Krauthammer and Mr. Goldberg is that there is truth in their indictment. The bad news is that their case against the left…

Misunderestimating The Palin Effect

Once again the media is missing the point.

 Especially with the influence and effect of Sarah Palin. Then again perhaps they do, thus they have gone after her as if - if they could - kill her off be rid of her, simply because of what she will mean in the years to come.

 Right now her book, "Going Rogue" is flying off bookshelves - 300,000 copies, far outselling that of Hillary, Obama or any other recent "media hero".

 The reason is evident. People across the US are connecting and have found someone who speaks and thinks as they do.

The rumblings of the populace are growing and as the marches this summer told us they are growing in number.  The majority isn't the socialist wing of the Democratic party, it's the majority of Americans who are conservative and who have had enough with government takeover and influence in their lives.

Palin represents the beginning of the revolution to come.   As millions of copies of her book go out and other conservatives…

The Fight Begins

Byron York:
 "The extraordinary thing about the dramatic events surrounding the health care bill in the Senate is that there was any drama at all. Lawmakers were simply voting to begin debate on the Democratic version of health care reform. Just begin debate -- not end it, and not move on to a final vote.
 If Democrats, with a 60-vote majority in the Senate, had not been able to begin debate on the top Democratic policy priority in a generation -- well, that would have been a devastating turn of events, both for the party and for President Obama.
 And yet just starting debate proved difficult, and only on the last day did the 60th Democratic vote fall in place in favor of beginning the process. I asked a high-ranking Republican Senate source whether it was really that hard to get the Democratic votes together.
Could it have been a media-fed story, with reporters looking to inject some unwarranted drama into the proceedings? No, I was told. "It really was that hard for them …

Orin Hatch - The War Cry - We Will NOT Let the Government Mandate Our Choice

Orin Hatch:

 "Mr. President, We are rapidly approaching perhaps one of the most important votes for each of us here in the United States Senate. 
This is bigger than us, our parties or our ideologies. This about the very future of the greatest nation in the history of the world. It is about your children and my children. It is about your grandchildren and my children. 
It is about giving our future generations the same opportunities and the same sense of pride. It is about every American life and every American business that will be subject to this 2,074-page edict from Washington. 
 I am going to spend my time before this historic vote to highlight some very important numbers, so every member of this chamber understands what they are voting to advance. Make no mistake, our actions today will not be without consequences. 
History and our future generations will judge us on this. Here are some numbers:

First Salvo: NRSC Moves Towards Replacing Lincoln

Lincoln's done in Arkansas:  Via the NRSC:







“Blanche Lincoln’s vote tonight is unequivocally a vote in favor of President Obama’s $2.5 trillion government-run health care plan.
“Obviously the pressure from the left wing of her party finally got to Blanche Lincoln.  She not only reversed her previous statements that a government-run plan was too costly, but she completely ignored the increasing unemployment rate in her state and the growing national deficit when she announced that she will cast the 60th vote in favor of President Obama’s costly health care plan tonight.
“There’s no doubt that this vote will be a critical issue for Senator Lincoln as she embarks on her uphill re-election bid, and the people of Arkansas will have an opportunity to hold her accountable when they cast their ballots next November.”

Which is the case indeed.  Via Zogby:



"In an initial match-up of Lincoln and possible Republican candidate State Senator Gilbert Baker, the incumbent, Lincoln, holds a na…

Senate Democrat Giveaway - Reid has his 60 Votes, Guaranteeing Democrats Loose Elections in 2010, 2012

The American public won't be bullied.

 Given that the Democrats will commit political suicide tonight by voting to continue debate on healthcare, we now look ahead to 2010 and 2012, and ram down the throats of Americans a bill they don't want and have rejected;

 Given that even if Obama gets his wish at grabbing power over the nation's healthcare system, it won't go into affect until after he is politically dead and gone - 2012 by the accounting of recent poll numbers.

 By the way, Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) and Sen. Blanche Lincoln, are gone. They threw their chance of remaining in office away this afternoon.

 Makes no difference if they oppose the public option or not, they will simply not be reelected.

 Subsequently beginning in 2010 and 2012, with the return of Congress to the GOP - yes it's going to happen - we'll then have to decide how to reverse and extinguish this mess.

 But we will do it, indeed it's already being planned. 

How much will get rev…

Global Fraud Exposed - Al Gore Could be Sued

We know that by all accounts the so-called Global Warming theory is just that - a theory- and a debunked theory at that. Now it's been discovered that the theory was "cooked up" by scientists trying to create something out of nothing.
"If you own any shares in alternative energy companies I should start dumping them NOW. The conspiracy behind the Anthropogenic Global Warming myth (aka AGW; aka ManBearPig) has been suddenly, brutally and quite deliciously exposed after a hacker broke into the computers at the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (aka Hadley CRU) and released 61 megabites of confidential files onto the internet.
(Hat tip: Watts Up With That) When you read some of those files – including 1079 emails and 72 documents – you realise just why the boffins at Hadley CRU might have preferred to keep them confidential.
As Andrew Bolt puts it, this scandal could well be “the greatest in modern science”. These alleged emails – supposedly exchang…

Why Andrew Sullivan Makes Gay Ugly

Andrew Sullivan is not only a sad man who finds fun in slandering Down Syndrome Affected kids, and the moms that bore them, but he shows us just how ugly gay hatred of women can be.   Not only maniacal, but boorish and lame.

The Queen has taken a hiatus, evidently to farm 'Going Rogue' for a fresh batch of slander to come.

Yet most of us wish he would simply slide back into the slime bucket he crawled out of.

Couldn't be that lucky, could we?

Correction the Quinnipiac Poll - NOT the First Time Obama Slipped Below 50% Approval

Errr,...

 "President Barack Obama's job approval rating is 48 - 42 percent, the first time he has slipped below the 50 percent threshold nationally, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. "
 Incorrect.

 Rasmussen Reports has had Obama's approval at below 50 percent on 7 different occasions during the last month or two.

Additionally  Fox News in it's October 18th poll found Obama at sub 50 percent as well.

The Only "Standing" Obama has Improved is America's Vulnerability to Attack

Mr. "Bend Over": "Beijing, China (CNN) -- A little more than a year after his election, President Obama said his administration has laid the groundwork for success on global and domestic matters. "I think that we've restored America's standing in the world, and that's confirmed by polls," he told CNN's Ed Henry in a wide-ranging interview this week during his trip to China. "I think a recent one indicated that around the world, before my election, less than half the people -- maybe less than 40 percent of the people -- thought that you could count on America to do to the right thing. Now it's up to 75 percent." The president said that makes it easier for world leaders to cooperate with the United States, noting Chinese and Russia involvement in nuclear talks with Iran. Obama has visited 20 countries during his first year in office, more than any other U.S. president." And he's "Bend Over" forwards, apolog…

'Going Rogue' Flying off Bookshelves

First run gone!
"Sarah Palin’s memoir just hit the stands today but demand for “Going Rogue: An American Life” is so strong that HarperCollins Publishers is going back to press for an additional 100,000 run, bringing the total number of hard-covers in print to 1.6 million copies. a spokeswoman for Amazon.com Inc.’s Web site noted in an email that the title “is already one of our bestselling nonfiction books of 2009.” At 2:40 p.m., the book ranked No. 1 on Amazon’s list of best sellers, with six customer reviews and 393 customer discussions. Amazon is selling the book for $14.50, a 50% discount from its $28.99 retail price."
Sure to drive the sexist liberals clean over the edge.

Newsweak Uses Unauthorized Photo In Sexist Cover of Sarah Palin

You could expect no less from a magazine which has been caught in more fabricated stories than Dan Rather at a campside.

Here is the cover.

























The photo was taken by Sarah for Runner's World, yet Newsweak's motivation is evident.

 In approaching several supermarket chains in the South Florida area I asked them to remove the magazine or face media coverage of why they would carry such an obvious sexist and inappropriate photo.   Today I will be following up with Barnes and Noble who also carries the magazine.

Contact them here to ask them to remove the issue from newsstands.

Two supermarket chains have responded that they will definitely look into it, another has agreed to remove it.

T-Mobile is a sponser of Newsweak, contact them here to ask if they approve of such sexism.

 Palin has said that she did not authorize the photo and a call into Runner's World hasn't been returned as of yet. I will ask them to demand that Newsweak remove the offensive cover.

Contact Runners Wo…

Shocked! C-BS Poll Finds Democrats Really Don't Like Palin

In another C-BS heavily weighted - Ok, ridiculously weighted Democrat poll found that 1 in 4 Democrats don't like Palin.
"She may be among the biggest names in politics at the moment, but former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is not exactly America's sweetheart. Just 23 percent of those surveyed in a new CBS News poll have a favorable view of the former Alaska governor. That matches her favorable rating in July, when Palin announced she was resigning from her job as governor. Thirty-eight percent, meanwhile, have an unfavorable view of Palin -- also roughly matching her July rating. Another 37 percent say they are undecided or haven't heard enough, despite the spotlight on Palin in recent days tied to the imminent publication of her memoir, "Going Rogue."
How did they get this number? Simple, use 307 to 212 Democrat vs. Republican dynamics. Note how C-BS has to gloss over the nearly 40 percent of undecideds which most other reputa…

Why Sarah Palin Scares the Hell out of the Left

Because she can run in 2012 and if she does she'll most likely win. Of course the left and even willy-nillies on in the middle right know this. It's why they despise her so much.

 I doubt that modern history has seen such a virtual gang-rape of a female politician as we've seen of what has been done to Palin.

 Had this type of treatment occurred against Hillary Clinton or even God forbid Michelle Obama liberal women would have screamed from rooftops and demanded that all involved be castrated, lose their jobs, resign their positions, and be shot at sunrise and not necessarily in that order.

 Today Rasmussen found that 59% of GOP voters say Palin shares their values. That's greater than any other GOP candidate and NO other present candidate draws more crows and excites the base more than Palin.

 Which is why notoriously inaccurate polling such as ABC/WAPO, which use primarily Democratic weighted samples show Palin with more un-favorability than favorability. Exce…

Tapper's "Friend" is Wrong about "The Bow"

Ok, let's dispense with the silliness of which the left will go to explain away Obama's bow.

 Witness.  ABC's Jake Tapper.
"An old friend -- an academic with expertise about the Japanese Empire, and in general a supporter of President Obama -- sends me the following note, relating to photographs of President Obama bowing to Emperor Akihito of Japan.
"This picture shows two things," my friend writes. "1) The 'right' is wrong about Obama's bow. "2) The 'left' is wrong about Obama's bow.
"His bow is neither (1) unprecedented nor (2) a sign of cultural understanding.
"At their 1971 meeting in Alaska, the first visit of a Japanese Emperor to America, President Nixon bowed and referred to Emperor Hirohito and his wife repeatedly as 'Your Imperial Majesties.'"

















The picture of Nixon is one of "bowing", but leaning and yes the two are completely different.  God, if the left have to dig back nearly 40…

Gore Get's Heckled in Democratic Boca Raton

NOBODY is buying his shinola anymore, not even liberals in Boca Raton.
"BOCA RATON, FL -- Hundreds of people sat inside the Mizner Amphitheater, paying close attention to the presentation, but outside, it was a different story. A large group of protesters gathered just steps away from where former Vice President Al Gore was speaking. "If you follow the money, it tells you all you need to know about Al Gore he is making millions off all this energy stuff he is selling," said Meg Shannon, with the South Florida Tea Party. They made lots of noise and held up some very creative signs, showing their disapproval for Gore's views on global climate change. "Give me a break, can we cause global warming? I don't think so," said Shannon."
The reporting isn't exactly right.

 Just because you see "Tea Party" it doesn't mean "Republican". Fact is that the South Florida Tea Party is a mix of Republicans and Democrats and a fe…

It's NOT Protocol for the President to Bow to a Japanese Emperor

Another lame excuse from the White House on Obama's breech of protocol.
"A senior administration official said President Barack Obama was simply observing protocol when he bowed to Japanese Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko upon arriving at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo on Saturday. “I think that those who try to politicize those things are just way, way, way off base,” the official said. “He observes protocol. But I don’t think anybody who was in Japan – who saw his speech and the reaction to it, certainly those who witnesses his bilateral meetings there – would say anything other than that he enhanced both the position and the status of the U.S., relative to Japan. It was a good, positive visit at an important time, because there’s a lot going on in Japan.”
That's simply wrong.

 See here that no other world leader bowed.

 Indeed the President of the United States bows to no one, much less a vanquished foe.  Note also that Akihito didn't return the bow, which is …

Report: Obamacare Would INCREASE Cost of Healthcare - Reduce Senior Care

Kiss the Pelosi bill goodbye.

 "A plan to slash more than $500 billion from future Medicare spending — one of the biggest sources of funding for President Obama's proposed overhaul of the nation's health-care system — would sharply reduce benefits for some senior citizens and could jeopardize access to care for millions of others, according to a government evaluation released Saturday.   The report, requested by House Republicans, found that Medicare cuts contained in the health package approved by the House on Nov. 7 are likely to prove so costly to hospitals and nursing homes that they could stop taking Medicare altogether.   Congress could intervene to avoid such an outcome, but "so doing would likely result in significantly smaller actual savings" than is currently projected, according to the analysis by the chief actuary for the agency that administers Medicare and Medicaid.  That would wipe out a big chunk of the financing for the health-care reform packag…

Guess What? New York City Cannot Afford to Try 9/11 Suspects

This is in no way reflective on the fine men and women of the New York City Police department, or local FBI, but the fact of the matter is that New York City cannot afford the cost of hosting the 9/11 terrorist trials.

 According to the NYC Budget, posted here, the budgeted amount for police - who will provide the lion-share of work - is $4,358,387, for FY 2010.

 This is down nearly $300,000 from FY 2009. Mind you that this is "bare operating" cost of simply running the police department. There is nothing budgeted for "extra security", or contingency.

 Mayor "Spend 'em and Leave 'em" Bloomberg in January this year painted a "grim economic picture" for New York City in FY 2009.
"Mayor Bloomberg's bad-news budget tries to plug a $4 billion hole with less than $2 billion worth of spending cuts and new sales taxes - and counts on unions, Albany and the federal govermment to come up with the rest. He proposed a $43.4 billion …

Did Obama Bankrupt the Country to the Point it Can't Defend itself?

At last the real reason Barack Obama is stalling on sending needed troops to Afghanistan - he can't - we're broke.

The Ny Times explores this truth - a first I might add.
 "Senior administration officials reported to the New York Times today that budget projections for the war in Afghanistan will cost U.S. taxpayers at least $1 million per soldier, per year.   The plan to add 40,000 American troops and greatly expand Afghan security forces, supported by Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the top commander in Afghanistan, is estimated to cost between $40 billion to $54 billion annually. “Even if fewer troops are sent, or their mission is modified, the rough formula used by the White House...appears almost constant,” according to the NYT.   The new estimate for the cost of war in Afghanistan will cancel out the $26 billion savings projected for a 2010 troop withdrawal in Iraq. Under this scenario, the overall military budget could rise as high as $734 billion. The highest annual milit…

We Need a New Federal Law - President Obama Not Allowed to Speak without a Teleprompter

Witness!



 "... Now, obviously Japan has unique perspective on the issue of nuclear weapons as a consequence of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. And that I'm sure helps to motivate the Prime Minister's deep interest in this issue. I certainly would be honored, it would be meaningful for me to visit those two cities in the future. I don't have immediate travel plans, but it's something that would be meaningful to me. You had one more question, and I'm not sure I remember it. Was it North Korea?

 Q Whether or not you believe that the U.S. dropped a nuclear weapon on Hiroshima and Nagasaki -- it was right?

 PRESIDENT OBAMA: No, there were three sets of questions, right? You asked about North Korea?"

 So why can't Obama man-up and say whether or not Harry Truman - a Democrat - did the right thing? Obviously this is yet another example of an amature in action.

The Truth about 9/11? Clinton's Dismantling of the Defense Apparatus was to Blame

Not what you would pick up from the Ny Slimes telling of the story.

 There Jacob Heibrunn (sounds german?), attempt to prove that the book, "The Ground Truth - The Untold Story of America under Attack on 9/11" by John Farmer is proof solid that 9/11 was an "inside job".

First, Farmer was a council on the 9/11 Omission Commission, and obviously has a bone to pick with Bush and the War on Terror. Nothing he says in the book sheds any light and is much based on heresay than fact.  But notice something here.
"For all the trillions of dollars lavished on it, for all the talk about confronting new security threats, for all the exhortations to reinvent government, America’s defense establishment, as John Farmer reminds us in “The Ground Truth,” continued to fight the cold war more than a decade after it had ended. Preoccupied with building a costly missile defense system to counter a spurious menace from Russia and with maintaining “full spectrum dominance” over the…

President "O-Bow" to Anyone

Well I was right that Obama was on his way to another apology tour. Didn't take look for him to bow again, this type to a Japanese despot:
"Obama has now done it again. Andrew Malcolm asks (and reports): "How low will he go? Obama gives Japan's Emperor Akihito a wow bow." Obama's breach of protocol is of a piece with the substance of his foreign policy. He means to teach Americans to bow before monarchs and tyrants. He embodies the ideological multiculturalism that sets the United States on the same plane as other regimes based on tribal privilege and royal bloodlines. He gives expressive form to the idea that the United States now willingly prostrates itself before the rest of the world. He declares that the United States is a country like any other, only worse, because we have so much for which to apologize."
















This is expected of a gutless wonder, a child king with big talk but little action.   A fooking disgrace to Americans everywhere he trea…

Just Call Him - "Dollar Bill"! William Jefferson Gets 13 years

Justice finally done.
"Former Rep. William Jefferson was sentenced today to 13 years in prison for his conviction on 11 counts of public corruption in a case in which he famously hid $90,000 in his freezer. U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III delivered the sentence at a packed courtroom in the federal courthouse in Alexandria, Va.
Prosecutors had asked for 27 to 33 years in prison, while Jefferson's lawyers said the prison term should be less than 10 years. Jefferson stood stoically as the sentence was read, showing little emotion.
