Obama Ally Throws Cold Water On Health Care

""I have a lot of concerns as a governor," Schweitzer said from the National Governors Association meeting in Biloxi, Mississippi. "Now, let me lay this out, there are only a few states that have a budget surplus, we are one them, we have about $400 million in cold hard cash in the bank. Very few states have got that. And we got there through good fiscal management. You can't put more things on your plate than you can afford to pay for. Now what is happening in Congress right now, things that disturb us as governors, is first they are looking at the rules and one of the proposals would be that the way we are going to pay for a portion of this health care is we will turn to the states and ask them to bond, to pay for some of the health care.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is not about people who need health care actually getting healthcare.

This is about more and more taxation on an already tax-strapped population, taxed for money borrowed by this government to continue their wars without end.

At the end of the day in Congress, we don't have democrats or republicans; all we have is the War Party.

And even though we go through our kabuki-style elections every so often in this country, what we have come to in recent years is a new version of taxation without representation, the very issue which caused the
American colonies to rebel against the British government.

Representatives no longer represent We the People; they represent those large interests which have acquired them (through overt and covert campaign contributions and perks), and the people be damned.

Schweitzer is absolutely correct in stating that an intelligent government won't spend more than it has, something the federal government has blown by a wide margin, looking at the national deficit.

Were we not borrowing money to fund these wars without end, then perhaps we could actually fund meaningful health care reform.

But this legislation, which Obama is hoping desperately to stampede through congress without it even being read and digested by congress members, cannot logically be paid for under the current circumstances.

This appears to be just another ploy to stave off the very real possibility that the US will default on its debts before the end of this year.

'Biting The Rabbit'

About a week later my mother and I went to The Big Store and I pointed it out to her. She gave no indication that I could one day own that rabbit. Easter 1962 arrived and with it....the chocolate rabbit! I was ecstatic!

But when I opened the box, something did not seem right. The weight did not match the size, and when I bit into the ear the awful truth hit me like a framing hammer....the rabbit was hollow!

What I thought was a week's worth of chocolate was the equivalent of two Hershey bars! That was my first inkling that things are not always as they seem in this world and that sometimes things are misleading on purpose.

Internal Rifts on Road to Torment

Interviews Offer More Nuanced Look At Roles of CIA Contractors, Concerns Of Officials During Interrogations

In April 2002, as the terrorism suspect known as Abu Zubaida lay in a Bangkok hospital bed, top U.S. counterterrorism officials gathered at CIA headquarters in Langley, Va., for a series of meetings on an urgent problem: how to get him to talk.

In August 2002, as the first anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks approached, officials at CIA headquarters became increasingly concerned that they were not learning enough from their detainee in Thailand. When the interrogators concluded that Abu Zubaida had no more to tell, Langley scolded them: "You've lost your spine." If Mitchell and his team eased up and then al-Qaeda attacked the United States again, agency managers warned, "it would be on the team's back," recalled the former U.S. official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss classified information.

Walter Cronkite – The Most Dishonest Man in America

(LRC) – Never being one to buy into that nonsense about “speaking ill of the dead,” I want to bring to your attention the following statement that the recently-deceased Walter Cronkite said in accepting the 1999 Norman Cousins Global Governance Award at the ceremony at the United Nations:

“It seems to many of us that if we are to avoid the eventual catastrophic world conflict we must strengthen the United Nations as a first step toward a world government [emphasis mine] patterned after our own government with a legislature, executive and judiciary, and police to enforce its international laws and keep the peace. To do that, of course, we Americans will have to yield up some of our sovereignty. That would be a bitter pill. It would take a lot of courage, a lot of faith in the new order. But the American colonies did it once and brought forth one of the most nearly perfect unions the world has ever seen.”

MoD computers become part of Ghana’s dangerous trade in e-waste

Britain was accused yesterday of dumping toxic household and industrial waste in developing countries on two continents in breach of an international convention.

Hilary Benn, the Environment Secretary, ordered an investigation into two British companies linked to 90 shipping containers containing 1,400 tonnes of waste. They included syringes, condoms and nappies. The companies that received the waste — sent from Felixstowe to three Brazilian ports — said that they had been expecting recyclable plastic.

No-bid contracts mean higher costs

The Pentagon saves more than three times as much money when companies compete, the AP analysis showed. Yet more than $242 million in federal contracts — representing more than one-fourth of the military's stimulus contract spending so far — has been awarded under the recovery program through no-bid contracts for repairs and maintenance.

Across the government, more than $543 million in federal contracts have been awarded so far without competition under Obama's $787 billion stimulus program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This means even more tax dollars out of your wallets, folks.

But then, of course, people in the Pentagon and Congress do not care about what those extra taxes mean to your quality of life (or the lack of it).

Another broken Obama promise - Sell off ROADLESS Nat. Forest logging rights.

It is the largest temperate rain forest in the United States....

W.H.O. Says It Plans to Stop Tracking Swine Flu Cases

In a move that caught many public health experts by surprise, the World Health Organization quietly announced Thursday that it would stop tracking swine flu cases and deaths around the world.

The announcement, made in a “briefing note” posted on the organization’s Web site late in the day, perplexed some experts, and even baffled a W.H.O. spokesman, Gregory Hartl, who said in an e-mail message, “I don’t have reliable info” about what his agency would track instead.

Goldman Sachs' US Thieving Thugs

As Goldman Sachs posts huge profits from the economic crisis, the question is: Did it cause the problems in the first place?
By Alex Brummer
Last updated at 3:39 AM on 18th July 2009
The tentacles of this operation reach right into the heart of Washington. It is no coincidence that President Barack Obama's chief-of-staff, Rahm Emanuel, who shaped much of the bail-out plan and stimulus package which has helped to save America - and Goldman Sachs - from ruin, served his time inside the hallowed walls of the bank. So did President Bush's last Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson,.... who then persuaded Congress to cough up $700bn worth of rescue funds for America's banks - an estimated $5bn chunk of which (yes, you guessed it) went to Goldman Sachs.

Hillary Clinton admits that the CFR runs the Government

National Security Advisor James L. Jones admits that the CFR runs the Government

“Thank you for that wonderful tribute to Henry Kissinger yesterday. Congratulations. As the most recent National Security Advisor of the United States, I take my daily orders from Dr. Kissinger, filtered down through Generaal [sic] Brent Scowcroft and Sandy Berger, who is also here. We have a chain of command in the National Security Council that exists today.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t Henry Kissinger and Brent Scowcroft retire from government service years ago? Hmmmmm?

Coming to America to feast on this cornucopia of freebies is the world. One million to 2 million immigrants, legal and illegal, arrive every year. They come with fewer skills and less education than Americans, and consume more tax dollars than they contribute by three to one.

Wise Latina women have more babies north of the border than they do in Mexico and twice as many here as American women.

As almost all immigrants are now Third World people of color, they qualify for ethnic preferences in hiring and promotions and admissions to college over the children of Americans.

Senate Passes Hate Bill - Yet Democrats Compromise

Sen. Patrick Leahy's hate crimes bill, amending the National Defense Authorization Act, effectively passed the Senate tonight at about eleven o'clock p.m. EDT. A call for cloture, or termination of debate after thirty hours, was passed 63 to 28. Clearly, the Senate majority had spoken. Once cloture is invoked there is usually little more that can be done to resist.

There was no floor debate. A complete end run had been done around adequate Senate hearings, a Mark-up session and Rules Committee debate. Total Senate debate of the hate bill amounted to little more than a brief "kangaroo" hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee several weeks ago. Witnesses, which included Attorney General Eric Holder were stacked 4 to 2 against conservatives.

On Obama: He "is not going to trick us with an ambiguous discourse or with a smile," and he wants to be seen "as a peaceful dove, as an innocent lamb."

On the "imperial" U.S. forces that Chavez thinks killed JFK: "I hope they do not kill Obama, because Obama is biting off more than he can chew."

On his Bolivarian revolution: "The process of change in Latin America is not going to stop, President Obama. You can send the Fourth and the Sixth Fleet, or the world's largest bombers, but changes will not end."

On the responsible parties for the Honduras overthrow: "The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the US Department of State and the Pentagon."

WILL VIOLENT CRIME SPARK VIGILANTE JUSTICE?
James H. Lilley
By definition, a vigilante is a protector, defender or guardian and, as such, may belong to a vigilance committee. But, when you define vigilance committee according to Webster, you have “a group organized outside of legal authority to keep order and punish crime, because the usual law enforcement agencies do not exist, or are alleged to be inefficient.”

US smoker chokes on cost of habit

At Jail in Bagram, A Detainee Protest

The prisoners at the largest U.S. detention facility in Afghanistan have refused to leave their cells for at least the past two weeks to protest their indefinite imprisonment, according to lawyers and the families of detainees.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Indefinite detention has been legitimized by the Bush administration, and seems to be favored as well by the Obama administration.

This is completely antithetical to every core value upon which this country was founded, as enshrined in the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

We cannot, for one moment, as a country, talk about the rule of law, human rights, and human dignity unless we actually practice what we preach.

At both Gitmo and Bagram, we are failing, miserably, to lead the world by example.

US considers expanding army: Pentagon

Defense Secretary Robert Gates is weighing a possible temporary expansion of the US army to ease the strain from wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, his press secretary said on Wednesday.

Gates was discussing the idea, backed by Senator Joseph Lieberman, with senior officers to add 30,000 troops to the active-duty army, press secretary Geoff Morrell told reporters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder, in a time of continuing wars without end, just where SecDef Gates believes he is actually going to find these 30,000 additional troops without the reintroduction of the draft?

And for those who flatly deny that this would ever happen again in the US, consider this: draft boards have already been quietly resurrected all over this country.

Blacks and Joblessness: the Toll of Racism

Michael was worth well over a billion in music publishing assets and somebody killed him for that. He was worth more dead than alive."

It’s Still a Military Coup in Honduras

It’s Still a Military Coup in Honduras
by Al Giordano - July 12, 2009
...if the military sets the terms for a puppet “civilian government”..., then it is still military rule no matter how you slice it: that of unelected generals and colonels determining their very narrow and authoritarian limits of “government.” Democracy is impossible under those circumstances.
Update II: VTV reports that its journalists and those of TeleSur have been forcibly brought to the airport for expulsion from Honduras. Beyond this latest evidence that the coup is neither democratic nor values press freedom, it is worrisome because it reveals that the coup's next steps are likely so repressive and atrocious that it can't withstand reporting of it to the rest of the world.

Behind POTUS’s journey to Ghana was the POTUS embassy in Moscow, and I mention that there are large, unattractive, compelling questions about the three days in Moscow.... The word from Russian sources, via my sources, is that POTUS and his team were ineffective, presumptive, hasty, evasive, unprepared, unappreciative, aimless, superficial. ...The second night, POTUS stayed in the hotel while all official Moscow puzzled what could there be to this behavior. .. At breakfast the third day, Putin lectured POTUS for two hours. Putin usually does all the talking, however he is usually dominating Russians, not a president.

Children: Father didn't abuse us: Ex-Vancouver police officer spent nearly 20 years in prison

A 33-year-old son recalled how, at age 9, he was repeatedly questioned, alone, by now-retired Detective Sharon Krause, of the Clark County Sheriff's Office. He said that after months of questioning, he said he had been abused just to get Krause to leave him alone.

A 30-year-old daughter said she doesn't remember what she told Krause at age 5, but recalled Krause bought her ice cream.

The brother and sister, who live in Sacramento, Calif., said that while growing up in California they were told by their mother, who divorced Spencer before he was charged, that they were blocking out the memory of the abuse.

They said they realized as adults the abuse had never happened.

A bit of a stretch, isn't it?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a gecko in my office claims to be descended from a T-rex. The sad little lizard has nothing else to feel good about himself with, so I haven't told him that the actual descendants of the dinosaurs are modern-day birds.

As for David Cameron being a descendant of the twelve tribes of Hebrews that followed Moses out of Egypt, the
latest archaeological evidence is that the exodus actually happened to the Hyksos, and the Hebrews simply stole the story.

As for Moses, I tend to agree with Sigmund Freud that the
historical figure of Moses was actually an Egyptian, possibly even the 'heretic' monotheistic Pharaoh Akhenaten.

Ignorance for Dummies

Ignorance is bliss as it is seemingly better to not want to know. You see, if people really knew the depth of the rat hole into which we've descended, maybe they might have to take action or even consider putting a few cases of bottled water in the closet before the hurricane hits. But no, they don't want to know, and if you try to warn them it will fall on deaf ears because God will save them as their faith in Jesus is all they need. They have put on the armor of the Lord that nothing can penetrate including common sense. These are the so heavenly minded they become no earthly good and they are the poor sacks that were on the rooftops crying for "hep" after Katrina. Jesus must have had inventory problems or maybe his network crashed because I didn't see him delivering any Aquafina. Was there a lesson learned? The ignorant come from all walks of life, found amongst those that have the ability and means to actually do the research and search out the looming menace facing society, so there should be no excuse for the people to come begging. Or should there?

Akron police investigate teen mob attack on family

Akron police say they aren't ready to call it a hate crime or a gang initiation.

But to Marty Marshall, his wife and two kids, it seems pretty clear.

It came after a family night of celebrating America and freedom with a fireworks show at Firestone Stadium. Marshall, his family and two friends were gathered outside a friend's home in South Akron.

Out of nowhere, the six were attacked by dozens of teenage boys, who shouted ''This is our world'' and ''This is a black world'' as they confronted Marshall and his family.

Neighborhood seeks to secede from homeowners association

Mary Scott says she cannot sit by idly as the dues in her East Manatee homeowner association have continued to rise and she sees no benefit from them.

The money is not being spent equally throughout the Creekwood community's five neighborhoods, Scott says, and paying monthly dues to keep up a community pool she never uses has frustrated her even more.

An Apology to Honduras is in Order
JINSA Report #: 905
July 7, 2009

The Coming State of Chaos and Disorder.

These paid whores are in lockstep toward their own doom. The good men and women who could have made a difference have been marginalized or closed out of the process. No one gets into the club who will not serve the interests of the swine in the shadows. There are good people at various levels and there’s no telling what positive effort they may yet bring in government, the military and law enforcement. We are going to see every human judged according to their capacity to rise to the occasion. We’re going to see the best and the worst of what we have in us.

On Marwa al-Sherbiny

Sherbini was a young (32 years old) mother killed in a German court — yes, in an open courtroom during a judicial sesssion — in Dresden July 1 in front of her three-year old son. She was stabbed (18 times)

Oh, sorry, now it appears she was also pregnant with her second child.

(*It’s received very little coverage in Europe or the US, and that fact as well as the crime itself has outraged the Egyptian street to a remarkable degree.)

The fear on the street is palpable to anyone who is paying attention. Ever since the election of Barack Obama as President of these United States in November 2008, coupled with the election of a democrat party majority in both the U.S. House and Senate, concern for the United States and personal safety has ignited like a fire in dry grass.

In the Time of the Lifting of the Veils.

This is the time of The Apocalypse. This is the time of the lifting of the veils over what is and what has been. It is not just in the outer sense that the veils are being lifted. The veils are being lifted within also …and we are seeing ourselves. Our own corruptions and weaknesses are being revealed to us. This is why some people are losing their minds. This inner revealing is having another effect as well. A certain amount of people are being driven to transform themselves. To participate in the transforming of themselves and they are not losing their minds. They are discovering their true nature.

Migden's wild ride costs state $335,000

Several motorists called 911 after seeing the San Francisco Democrat weaving in and out of traffic on Interstate 80 and Highway 12 on May 18, 2007, in her state-issued Toyota Highlander hybrid sport utility vehicle. At one point, Migden sideswiped a guardrail on I-80 near American Canyon Road.

"She's been on the phone and reading a book, doing about 80 miles per hour," one driver said in his 911 call. "She's really scary."
