    Joe,
    Was your first post supposed to make sense?…or was it just bits & pieces?

    Some of us are not as harmless as others. I like straight shooters and don’t take well to bulls**t.

    Either Plains got a court order/injunction or Hale is trying to raise more money. You just never know with that guy…I’m going to quit…I left my mike on by accident…we’re making the chat room for members (paying members) only. You would think that he would disclose why or who prompted the court order. The mystery makes me suspicious.

    I’m going Salsa dancing tonight. My wife has promised to attempt the dead drop with me. I better not have any margaritas until after we try that or she may dead drop me. She hates it when I teach on the dance floor. She would rather just look like we are dancing completely different styles. Anyway, we have a bunch of friends meeting us…yes Slider a have more than one friend. So I am thinking Latin and trying to remember how to do the 7 step. 1, & 2; 1, & 2; step, step.

    No, not drinking. I don’t need an excuse to be flippant.

    Protest…Colorado…didn’t make it but know some that did. One of my friends drove a local churches Abortion bus around the Denver Zoo which is right next to where S/Ob was doing is abortion to our economy. One of my builder’s subcontractors went right by the motorcade and flipped Obama off and yelled that he was sick of him already.

  27. Tenacity Says:

    I should have said I was drinking…then I’d have an excuse for typing so bad.

  31. jay b Says:

    Um, Ten……….what’s an Abortion Bus?

    *afraid of the answer, except, that it does seem to involve a church, so……*

  32. Tenacity Says:

    They have a bus with anti-abortion statements and pictures on it.

  33. amy Says:

    The letter that Ed got was from his Fox affiliate, ordering him to “cease and desist(according to caren)”. They went on the air tonight WITHOUT Fox affiliation. Ed will post a copy of the letter tomorrow on his site after he talks with an attorney…It was NOT an injunction, just a “threat”.

  34. amy Says:

    So, this explains why Hannity, Oreily, Greta, and other Fox people have NOT been talking about Obamas ineligibility, the cases , like Bergs, Dr Orlys, and steves, the states Declaration of soverignity, etc.. They have been ordered not to.

  35. ddlew2 Says:

    I received this in an email today, have not verified it:

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Now that Bill Clinton has released the list of his 205,000 donors who have given close to $500 million to his library and foundation, it’s clear why he resisted releasing the list while his wife was running for president.

    Compelled to make it public as a condition of his wife’s appointment as secretary of state, it becomes clear that the list is a virtual encyclopedia of conflicts of interest for the husband of a senator, to say nothing of the husband of an incoming secretary of state.

    Particularly troubling are the massive donations from Arab governments in the Middle East . How can a secretary of state possibly be impartial in conflicts involving Israel when her husband has gotten tens of millions of dollars from Arabian governments and high-ranking people. Specifically, Clinton got:

    Between $10 million and $25 million from:

    — The government of Saudi Arabia

    Between $1 million and $5 million from:

    — Friends of Saudi Arabia

    — The Dubai Foundation

    — Saudi businessman Nasser Al-Rashid

    — Saudi tycoon Sheikh Mohammed H. Al-Amoudi

    — Former Lebanon Deputy Prime Minister Issam Fares

    — The government of Kuwait

    — The government of Qatar

    — The government of Oman

    — The government of Brunei

    — The Zayed Family, rulers of Abu Dhabi and the United Arab Emirates

    — He also received between $500,000 and $1 million from Saudi businessman Walid Juffali.

    Pardon us for looking such generous gift horses in the mouth, but it is hard to imagine so many governments, monarchs and businessmen in the Middle East giving money unless it was with some hope of a political return on their investment. Will that return now come with the appointment of Mrs. Clinton as secretary of state?

    After all, the next secretary of state will be called upon to mediate and negotiate conflicts in the Middle East as her first assignment. How can Hillary Clinton undertake to do so impartially when her husband’s library and foundation — over which he has total control — have been bankrolled by the very nations with whom she must negotiate?

    The list reveals another key center of conflicts of interest in Kazakhstan , the former Soviet Republic , now home to some of the world’s greatest mineral deposits and ruled by a corrupt dictator, Nursultan A. Nazarbayev, who according to The New York Times has all but quashed political dissent.”

    Clinton visited Kazakhstan and met with its president on Sept. 6, 2005, accompanied by Canadian mining financier Frank Giustra. Soon after, Giustra was awarded a highly lucrative contract to mine uranium there. Now, lo and behold, Giustra turns up having given the library and foundation $10 million to $25 million and the Clinton Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative-Canada gave $1 million to $5 million more. And Clinton got $1 million to $5 million from Laksmi Mittal, the fourth wealthiest person on the Forbes billionaire list and a member of the Foreign Investment Council in Kazakhstan .

    In addition, Clinton further fished in troubled waters by taking $1 million to $5 million from Victor Pinchuk, the son-in-law of the controversial former president of Ukraine .

    Given the complexities of U.S. policy toward the former Soviet republics in Central Asia , it is hard to see how this massive and incestuous relationship cannot but complicate Hillary’s independence.

    One of the largest donors to the library and foundation was UNITAID, an international organization largely controlled by France , which donated more than $25 million. And the conflicts of interest are not all just foreign. Corporate bailout recipients and wanna-be recipients donated to the Clinton fund. They include: AIG, Lehman, Merrill, the Citi Foundation and General Motors.

    And, almost as an afterthought, the list reveals a donation of at least $450,000 from Denise Rich, presumably in return for her ex-husband’s presidential pardon.

    How could a United States Senator possibly serve dispassionately while her husband was collecting money from these donors on this scale? And how could we have almost elected a president without realizing these conflicts existed? And how can a secretary of state function with these conflicts hanging over her head?

    Looks like another sell-out!

    An interesting open letter to BO, from a former high school classmate, written last month:

    http://gazingattheflag.blogspot.com/2008/01/dear-barry-open-letter-to-barack-obama.html

    Dear Barry~

    I am writing to you as a fellow alumni of Punahou School. I was gone long before you were there, but we shared the same rooms, some of the same teachers, the same atmosphere and environment. We grew up with similar experiences. I am motivated to do this because of the disturbing things you are doing that erode all credibility you might have had for me.

    I can not think of any political issue that you and I will ever agree upon. You believe in giving people everything – just as everything was given to you. It always amazes me that most spoiled liberal children grow up without ever learning to work for anything or to earn anything. And, I am disgusted that you have pared your biography down to exclude the parts that might let people know where you come from. There is something dishonest about that.

    [For my readers, Barry (his name in high school – Oahuan yearbook picture above) was a 1979 graduate of Punahou School, which is a top prep school (remember how GWB was excoriated for attending one of those) in Honolulu, Hawaii. Barry was sent to this premier and expensive school by his white grandparents with whom he lived. He attended from grade school through high school. His black African father had abandoned him and his white mother when he was a toddler. While I don’t normally write political pieces, I feel strongly about his sins of omission.]

    I do know that you were given one of the finest educations available in the United States. I know that you grew up a child of privilege. I do know that you were taught to speak in public, to think and to act. We should BOTH be grateful for the quality of education that we received. Yet, you seem to hide yours under the rock of omission. Are you worried that the masses might think less of you if they knew where you came from? How sad that you chose not to say – ‘see where a great education and great teachers can inspire you to go?’ And, are you going to tell people that those GREAT teachers were not part of a Union – they were there to mentor us and educate us and THEY DID.

    Of the many things that we instinctively knew with our shared background, the most important things were the lessons learned about race. In any classroom we were in, it was a given that everyone in the room would be of varying racial combinations. It was so dramatic that no one cared – we weere each a minority of one – except the twins in my class. We learned that character and the ability to excel with whatever gifts we had were the important things. We had the benefits of learning from multiple cultures – we ate one another’s foods, learned about holidays and celebrations and had our pidgin’ peppered with words from cultures around the globe. We had few cultures withheld from our experiences. We were each unique and yet none of us was more unique than the others. We learned the strenght of the individual. We learned that it is character, not color, that defines us. How sad that you have not shared this valuable lesson with people on the campaign trail, but have rather chosen to fall into the Clinton trap of isolating the races?

    I guess it is easier to let people think that you ‘fought’ your way to the top, when we know it is not true. But, how dishonest – how horribly dishonest.

    When I heard your speech at the 2004 Democrat National Convention, I was impressed – most of the country was impressed. You are a profoundly gifted orator. But, as I watch your campaign, though you have the gift to stir the crowds, I have yet to hear you say anything of substance. You say “CHANGE” a great deal. You get the crowds to chant, “YES WE CAN.”

    But, you never define the change. Fascism is a change, Communism is a change, Depression is a change, Massive Unemployment is a change, Undermining Capitalism is a change, Attacks on our Soil are a change. Change is not necessarily a good thing. What is it that you mean? Or, are you satisfied to have an electorate that has no ability to think or reason or question you? Or, horrors, don’t you know what you mean? And, what, exactly is it that we can do?

    Most of my disdain is for the only thing that you ever express in your platform – tucking our tail between our legs and running from the battlefield in Iraq. BAD IDEA. Yet, you never speak of Afghanistan. You never speak of the War on Terror. Don’t you believe they exist? Certainly you would have a policy position on them if you did. You scare me. I know that you have the capacity to be a deep thinker. Why is it that we are seeing the shallowest of rhetoric?

    If you want to be the President of this country, you will have an obligation to ALL of America – not just those who vote for you. Barry, it is time to excel – to be the thinker and communicator, else that will never happen.

    Sincerely,

    A Fellow Alumni of Punahou School (and owner of this blog)

    Thief-in-Chief Obama not even getting praise from left-leaning Economist

    “The Obama rescue”

    Feb 12th 2009
    From The Economist print edition

    http://www.economist.com/printedition/displayStory.cfm?Story_ID=13108724

    Mr Obama ceded control of the stimulus to the fractious congressional Democrats, allowing a plan that should have had broad support from both parties to become a divisive partisan battle.

    More serious still was Mr Geithner’s financial-rescue blueprint which, though touted as a bold departure from the incrementalism and uncertainty that had plagued the Bush administration’s Wall Street fixes, in fact looked depressingly like his predecessors’ efforts: timid, incomplete and short on detail.

    Despite talk of trillion-dollar sums, stockmarkets tumbled.

    Far from boosting confidence, Mr Obama seems at sea.

    His to-do list was dispiritingly inadequate on some of the thorniest problems, such as nationalising insolvent banks, dealing with toxic assets and failing mortgages.

    Mr Geithner promised to “stress-test” the big banks to see if they were adequately capitalised and offer “contingent” capital if they were not.

    But he offered few details about the terms of public-cash infusions or whether they would, eventually, imply government control.

    His plan for a “public-private investment fund” to buy toxic assets was vague and its logic—that a nudge from government, in the form of cheap financing, would enliven a moribund market—was heroic.

    Banks’ balance-sheets are clogged with toxic junk precisely because they are unwilling to sell the stuff at prices hedge funds and other private investors are willing to pay.

    Vagueness, in turn, led to incoherence. How can you stress-test banks if you do not know how their troubled assets will be dealt with and at what price?

    Amid these shortcomings were some good ideas, such as a fivefold expansion of a $200 billion fledgling Fed facility to boost securitisation.

    But for nervous investors and worried politicians, desperate for details and prices, the “plan” was a grave disappointment.

    An Interview with Senator Bob Corker on Auto Bailout Nation

    http://kudlowsmoneypolitics.blogspot.com/2009/02/interview-with-senator-bob-corker-on.html

    EXCERPT

    KUDLOW: A lot more. A lot more. I mean want to ask you about the more money part from a taxpayer’s stand point, sir. I mean look, GM is coming in with up to $17 billion increase? That’s what they’re asking for today as I understand it. There’s no end to that. You know that. I know that. There’s no end to that. We own it. The taxpayers own it. Do you doubt that the Obama administration and Congress will deny them the funds they need? Do you believe there’s an honest chance they’d go into bankruptcy? I don’t think so.

    CORKER: Both of the companies in talking to Chrysler, they had indicated and it’s in their plan so it’s public knowledge that if they went into bankruptcy, they felt like it would take actually $25 billion in debtor-in-possession-financing for them to actually come around. I heard the same number from GM. So, you know, Mark Zandi, if you remember, who testified in the second hearing, said that if any money went into these companies without appropriate restructuring, the taxpayers were going to be on the hook for $75 to $125 billion. And that’s what our effort this last December was all about, was to go ahead and cause the companies to get restructured so that would not occur.

    I will say – I’m down here in Tennessee. Businesses are suffering tremendously. I lived through the early ’80s. I lived through the early ’90s. I did my financial statement in my head every night just to see if I could pay everybody back, which I did, and did it on time. I have not seen an economy like we have in my lifetime. It is tough. The credit situation is very difficult. And I think that what I want to do is digest more fully what they’ve put forth before I say what I think we ought to do. I do think though, in general, all of us in this country are becoming far more concerned about continual bailouts, continuing taxpayer money going into companies, going into institutions, and I think at some point we’re going to have to take some tough medicine and call some of the financial institutions and others to actually fall by the wayside. I’m not saying that in this case yet…

    GM, Chrysler, and Mortgages: A Second Chance At Clarity, Purposefulness and Bipartisanship

    http://hughhewitt.townhall.com/blog/g/b4763ec2-4de0-4b5b-b31a-d0348f6e3242

    President Obama unveils a homeowner-assistance package today, a day after GM and Chrylser filed their restructuring plans and sought $21 billion in new aid.

    The plan for dealing with homeowners struggling to pay mortgages could in an instant reverse a lot of the psychology of fear that has gripped many people –if the terms of the plan are clear and the promise of timely assistance is specific and believable. Simple, direct explanations of who is eligible for what would be a wonderful change from the many plans over the past year that few understood and fewer used. Anything that helps build the bottom on housing powers the recovery. But a repeat of last week’s ambiguity about the banks will add another layer of evidence to the president’s growing reputation for overpromising and underdelivering.

    With the car companies, a quick decision to throw in with them or cut them off is much preferred to a long round of deliberations prior to a bankruptcy filing. Again, we don’t need another Hamlet-like performance bemoaning how awful it all is and how it is going to take superhuman effort etc. Get on with it. Quickly.

    With Brian Wesbury and others, I expect the recovery to arrive sooner and with more energy than most, but I also believe the starting gun has to go off in millions of minds via clear government signals about the rules of the road. The stimulus was a botched attempt to deliver such a signal because a sophisticated public understood it to be an exercise in rewarding constituencies of the Democratic Party, not a growth measure.

    Assistance to homeowners and the car companies are much more clearly non-political interventions and could earn GOP support in Congress –provided the Administration’s proposals don’t attempt to pick winners and losers based upon voting patterns, and provided that the UAW shares in the pain of the restructuring. President Obama gets a second chance to fashion a bipartisan approach to part of the economic problems, and we should hope he doesn’t whiff again.

    I just have to say this. Very often, it’s just little questions of intuition that start screaming in my head to be voiced.

    A few weeks ago, FOXnews.com started having articles about Hitler. Isn’t that odd? Until this election, was Hitler really a topic of daily discussion?

    Yesterday they had a story about Hitler’s flatulence problem. Today there’s a story about Hitler’s bad table manners.

    So is this a slow brain washing to get Hitler-esque thinking to be normal, or is this a subtle campaign to start connecting the dots to Obama?

    Obama Throws Churchill Out of Oval Office [Nile Gardiner]

    http://corner.nationalreview.com/post/?q=M2M3YWU0NDE5YzkwNjYwZmM3YjA2NzRkOGJjMjNiZmQ=

    As the London Telegraph reported, Barack Obama has just returned a bust of Sir Winston Churchill to the British government. The bust was loaned to the White House in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks as a demonstration of solidarity with the United States.

    Obama’s surprise decision to send Churchill home is both wrong-headed and crassly insensitive towards America’s closest ally, coming at a time when nearly 9,000 British troops are fighting alongside their American counterparts in Afghanistan. With good reason, there are growing doubts in the UK over the new President’s commitment to the Special Relationship. The President has never even mentioned the Anglo-American alliance in a major policy speech, and has little affinity for Britain.

    The Special Relationship is vital to American and British interests on many levels, from military, diplomatic, and intelligence cooperation to transatlantic trading ties. If President Obama does not invest in its preservation, the end result will be a weaker United States that is less able to stand up to terrorism and tyranny, and project power and influence on the world stage.

    “Obama’s Revenge”
    By Joan Swirsky, For The Bulletin

    Published: Tuesday, February 17, 2009

    It is clear that Mr. Obama and his fellow radicals are restive. In the less-than four weeks of his presidency, the new president has taken volumes from the Marxian handbook, which dictates that the stupid masses be blitzed with an overload of information, hollow press conferences, appointments, dismantling of formerly effective national-security programs and so on in order to set the stage for a massive, Soviet-style takeover of our government, including a civilian national security force that Mr. Obama has said should be “just as powerful, strong and well-funded as the U.S. military.” Echoes of Nazi Germany in 1938, anyone?

    According to writer Kyle-Anne Shrive, in Mr. Obama’s ascendance “we have yet to see a more perfect collision of Murphy’s Law with the Peter Principle. In only three weeks’ time, [he] has signaled to every terrorist on the planet that we are a sorry, groveling, ashamed nation ready to come to the diplomatic confessional. He is closing Gitmo within one year, has suspended trials there, and dismissed the charges against the U.S.S. Cole plotter. [He] has just put our money where his mouth is and is using $20.3 million to bring in Palestinian refugees from Gaza … [he] had the gall to pronounce the so-called economic stimulus bill absolutely free of ‘earmarks’ and ‘make-do work’… but according to the Congressional Budget Office [this bill] will do worse to our overall economy than no government action whatsoever.”

    And Mr. Obama has done all this with the predictable double-speak that characterizes malevolent intention, i.e., touting transparency while concealing everything, speaking of integrity while appointing crooks and incompetents riddled with conflicts of interest, supporting energy independence while killing off-shore and domestic oil-drilling and nuclear power, and feigning optimism while he speaks of impending “catastrophe” in order to push through a pork-laden, trillion-dollar-plus stimulus plan that rewards the corrupt voter-fraud organization ACORN with billions and unions with discriminatory union-only labor agreements, paves the way for socialized medicine, and threatens to take away the most cherished rights of We The People.

    As blogger Eric Gurr has said: “We still talk about the health- care crisis, the environmental crisis, the oil crisis, the banking crisis. Let me tell you my friends you are about to learn the meaning of the only crisis that matters, the survival crisis.”

    You can be sure that the sad-lonely-angry two-year-old, the jealous-confused-resentful 10-year-old, the self-conscious- cheated-victimized adolescent, and the man who found solace in and identified with his hate-America mentors is now determined to redeem all of his demons.

    Unfortunately, he is acting out his rage on free-market capitalism, a free press, property and gun rights, a limited constitutional government, protection of the unborn and everything else that is good and great about our country.

    This is Mr. Obama’s revenge!

    A bit OT but I am curious: What does everyone think about the Burris situation? Are the Obama thugs trying to push him out? Will the new governor get to appoint a new Senator if so? This really smells of Chicago politics. The one’s people were not amused by Blago’s antics—or were they? What a tangled web. Opinions please?
