    Seven Qaeda commanders enter Pakistan

    http://www.dailytimes.com.pk/default.asp?page=200964story_4-6-2009_pg7_3

    Seven trained commanders of Al Qaeda have reached Pakistan to create unrest across the country, with the terror outfit planning, in collaboration with Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), to carry out attacks and target President Asif Ali Zardari and all four provincial chief ministers, Daily Times learnt on Wednesday.

    An official told the newspaper that intelligence agencies had warned in a communiqué about a meeting of senior representatives of Al Qaeda and TTP – which was held in Paktiya province of Afghanistan on May 3, 2009.

    He said the operatives of the two organisations had decided to carry out terrorist attacks across Pakistan.

    The participants of the meeting included

    Amanullah Afghani,

    Shahidullah Khan,

    Rehmatullah Khan,

    Maulvi Khalid Shah,

    Abdul Latif Afghani,

    Muhammad Saeed Bin Talha,

    Muhammad Shaheen Kawrai,

    Ahmed Ali Tanwancy and others.

    It has been learnt that the seven Al Qaeda trained commanders in Pakistan masterminded attacks in Iraq.

    (What’s that you say?! You mean we’re fighting the same enemy in Pakistan AND Iraq?!)

    Meanwhile, a private TV channel reported that the Interior Ministry had issued a letter saying the TTP had sent suicide bombers to Islamabad, various parts of Punjab and Sindh.

    The letter says that suicide bombers had reportedly entered Karachi, Multan, Faisalabad, Lahore, Rawalpindi and Islamabad.

    The Women of Swat and ‘Mullah Radio’

    By a group of NWFP women

    “Islam started as soon as we fled from Malakand. People outside Swat think we had Islam and Shariat. There is no Islam in Swat. The Taliban have finished it.”

    -woman from Mingawera, Swat, in a Sawabai camp

    http://www.airra.org/analysis/TheWomenofSwatandMullahRadio.html

    How unfortunate it all is.

    How unfortunate that a culture deliberately keeps its women ignorant, a ready fodder for a madman and that these people had nowhere to turn to even when they wanted to save themselves and save our own country.

    What answer can one give to these poor, helpless women?

    Who is going to be held accountable for the violence they have suffered.

    It is quite clear that we have never really cared about them, that we did not bother to educate them because our leaders were busy squandering our money on foreign trips and properties and their own men were too busy thinking about their own control over women.

    They know today that nobody will ever protect them unless they see the glint of the dollar on the unfortunate horizon of Pakistan.

    Their questions can only be answered by those who know what they have done.

    And if they do not answer them in this world, they will for sure answer them in the next.

    From Solomon2

    It looks like everything you ever wanted Aggy: the people of Swat, having learned first-hand the cruelties of the Taliban, now support the government. Was it really necessary for Pakistan to learn this lesson the hard way, rather than have the President act like a leader rather than a follower?

    Al Qaeda operatives targeting Pakistani leaders

    The meeting in Paktia also highlights the interlinking of operations between al Qaeda and the various Taliban groups.

    The Haqqani Network, Baitullah Mehsud, Lashkar-e-Taiba, and a host of Taliban and Pakistani jihadi groups coordinate some of the military operations through the Lashkar al Zil, of the Shadow Army, al Qaeda’s paramilitary force that operates in Paksitan and Afghanistan. [see LWJ report, Al Qaeda’s paramilitary ‘Shadow Army’].

    The Shadow Army maintains bases in Pakistan’s tribal areas as well as in southern and eastern Afghanistan [see LWJ report, Al Qaeda Shadow Army camps located in northern Helmand].

    Hi Rosettasister, I’m here to comment on the music as always. One night I was thinking about songs/artists/groups that you probably wouldn’t know about or care about or like. Quicksilver was one of them. I’m beginning to realize you know about and like ALL music. One of my most favorite songs is “Don’t Cry MY Lady Love” by Quicksilver. It’s on a greatest hits album I have and it’s wore out and has scratches all over that song. Black cover with Silver lettering. Anyway, In the 2 or 3 months since I found your site, you posted 3 of my top 5 favorite albums ever and channeled my father with music from heaven with Muddy Waters and Al Hirt. I once said you’ve been hitting homeruns but they’re actually “Grandslams!” I always get here late (after midnight or later) so I play the music above very low or not at all. However, tomorrow is another day and my black album with silver lettering will come out. Thanks again for the memories.

    Mr. Berg,

    Your foolish websites, blogs, lawsuits, etc. about the issue of the President’s citizenship is nothing more than a thin veil to make a mockery on the citizen of the Untied States.
    Currently, Title 8 of the U.S. Code Section 1401 defines the following as people who are “citizens of the United States at birth:”
    • Anyone born inside the United States *
    • Any Indian or Eskimo born in the United States, provided being a citizen of the U.S. does not impair the person’s status as a citizen of the tribe
    • Any one born outside the United States, both of whose parents are citizens of the U.S., as long as one parent has lived in the U.S.
    • Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year and the other parent is a U.S. national
    • Any one born in a U.S. possession, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year
    • Any one found in the U.S. under the age of five, whose parentage cannot be determined, as long as proof of non-citizenship is not provided by age 21
    • Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is an alien and as long as the other parent is a citizen of the U.S. who lived in the U.S. for at least five years (with military and diplomatic service included in this time)
    • A final, historical condition: a person born before 5/24/1934 of an alien father and a U.S. citizen mother who has lived in the U.S.
    * There is an exception in the law – the person must be “subject to the jurisdiction” of the United States. This would exempt the child of a diplomat, for example, from this provision.
    Anyone falling into these categories is considered natural-born, and is eligible to run for President or Vice President. Separate sections handle territories that the United States has acquired over time, such as Puerto Rico (8 USC 1402), Alaska (8 USC 1404), Hawaii (8 USC 1405), the U.S. Virgin Islands (8 USC 1406), and Guam (8 USC 1407). Each of these sections confer citizenship on persons living in these territories as of a certain date, and usually confer natural-born status on persons born in those territories after that date. For example, for Puerto Rico, all persons born in Puerto Rico between April 11, 1899, and January 12, 1941, are automatically conferred citizenship as of the date the law was signed by the President (June 27, 1952). Additionally, all persons born in Puerto Rico on or after January 13, 1941, are natural-born citizens of the United States. Note that because of when the law was passed, for some, the natural-born status was retroactive.
    Perhaps, you should post this good law and statutory language on your website so that the people will grasp a clear understanding about what the law says about what constitutes “citizens of the United States at birth”. But, as expected, you won’t even bother post this law on your websites, blogs or elsewhere, because you know your position regarding the Constitution is patently frivolous; indeed, a fact found by all Courts you have filed papers with.

    I guess what I was trying to say is that at any given time a significant portion of our population is going to feel alienated, set apart.

    For example, most Americans believe that there should be some legal restrictions on abortion access.

    Like the late-term abortions that Tiller performed (partial-birth).

    And if state legislatures were writing these laws, abortion would be restricted.

    Because of Roe v Wade, abortion on demand is the law of the land, and there are no restrictions.

    So many probably feel as I do, that this is an injustice which must be righted.

    What about me?

    What about what I believe?

    Stopping Obamacare’s Government Option Via The Blue Dogs: The List and Contact Information

    http://hughhewitt.townhall.com/blog/g/995e4df7-b73c-4cb2-8c1b-70b910986d3d

    EXCERPT

    Moderate-to-conservative Democrats in the House are grouped in the so-called “Blue Dog Coalition.”

    Below you will find all the contact information for each of the “Blue Dogs,” arranged by state.

    If you are serious about stopping the “government option” and blocking rationing and the ruin of the leading position of American medicine in the world, you will contact each of these Blue Dogs by phone and e-mail and fax, beginning with those in your state if there are any, and telling them that

    if they support the government option or burdensome mandates, you will contribute to their 2010 opponent and work to make sure everyone in their district knows that they voted to bring Canadian-style, single payer health care to the U.S.

    Doctors and health care professionals especially have to weigh in directly by phone and e-mail with these Blue Dogs, and to do so repeatedly.

    Call their D.C. offices, but also call their district offices.

    Be specific: If they vote for the “government option” or “mandates,” you will work to defeat them. Hard. With cash to their opponents.

    I encourage you to send this link to your family, friends, and fellow workers, with a note encouraging them to get involved as well.

    Not even very loyal House Democrats will vote for the massive and radical overhaul of American medicine if they believe it will be an issue 18 months from now when they face the electorate which will lead to their defeat.

    (Yes, Mr. Hewitt. But these same Blue Dog Dems will be defeated if they vote to maintain the status quo. The fallback “trigger” option is a way for these Centrist Dems to vote for the change that most Americans want, but to prevent “single-payer.”)

    (God, you’re stubborn! Just like when the “Gang of 14” compromise got us Roberts and Alito. And aren’t you glad the Repubs didn’t go “nuclear” now that Dems are in power?)

    What’s in a name?

    http://blogs.reuters.com/james-pethokoukis/2009/06/05/whats-in-a-name/

    The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is quite poorly named.

    First of all, the U.S. economy is already recovering even though maybe 5 percent of the $800 billion package has been spent.

    Plus, much of the spending will have nothing to do with reinvestment, as the Associated Press notes:

    “Most of the roughly $300 billion going directly to the states is being funneled through existing government programs for health care, education, unemployment benefits, food stamps and other social services.

    “We all talked about ’shovel-ready’ since September and assumed it was a whole lot of paving and building when, in fact, that’s not the case,” said Chris Whatley, the Washington director of the Council of State Governments, a trade group for state governments.

    He estimates states will get three times more money for education than for transportation.”

    (I’ll betcha Obama wishes he had a chunk of that $800 billion back to spend on health care reform.)

    Obama moves to adopt McCain healthcare idea

    http://blogs.reuters.com/james-pethokoukis/2009/06/05/obama-moves-to-adopt-mccain-healthcare-idea/

    OMB Director Peter Orszag wrote,

    “We are insisting that health reform be deficit neutral even over the next five to 10 years, through scoreable offsets such as savings within Medicare and Medicaid and (as necessary) additional revenue.”

    http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/blog/09/06/01/ABeltandSuspendersApproachtoFiscallyResponsibleHealthReform/

    This means one of two things:

    Either health reform will be slowly phased-in over the next decade or more—a step that will allow lawmakers to finesse the offsetting tax hikes as well.

    Or Obama will have to swallow an exclusion cap.

    Once Congress is through, the kind of Medicare and Medicaid savings Orszag is thinking about will not add up to a lot of money—at least not in the context of a $1.5 trillion reform plan.

    And there just is no other politically-acceptable place to go to raise the kind of tax revenue the President will need.

    Now a few thoughts:

    1) I am not sure if I am as quite as euphoric as my friend economist Robert Brusca — “Today we have not just ‘Green shoots’ but an authentic sighting of the Jolly Green Giant himself” — but the decline in payroll losses is very good news.

    2) I would like to again note that the White House said unemployment would peak at just below 7 percent if its stimulus plan was passed.

    3) Those long-term unemployment numbers are bad news for foreclosure rates and credit card defaults.

    Senator Snowe needs our support

    Mainers Praise and Pan Public Insurance Plan Proposal

    http://www.mpbn.net/News/MaineNews/tabid/181/ctl/ViewItem/mid/1858/ItemId/10796/Default.aspx

    Senator Snowe wants more choice in the insurance market, too, but she sees a public plan as a last resort, says Dr. Bill Pewen, Snowe’s health policy advisor. “The first thing that the Senator is concerned about is reforming the health insurance market as it stands today.”

    Pewen says Snowe wants to bar insurers from charging unaffordable rates to consumers because of pre-existing health conditions. She’s also looking at a proposal to require everybody to have insurance, like in Massachusetts.

    If insurance costs don’t go down, if plans don’t provide a certain level of benefits, a public plan should be made readily available to consumers, under her proposal. “If the plans don’t repsond, then they bring a public plan on that market themselves. So, if we don’t have the kind of competition and affordable competition in Maine that we need, then it’s appropriate then to look at bringing in the fall-back plan,” Pewen says.

    But Pewen says the insurance industry is expected to become more competitive, in part because the market will expand through health reform legislation. Snowe is among those who want to offer financial assistance to individuals and small businesses who can’t afford coverage.

    Keeping Them “Honest”

    By PAUL KRUGMAN

    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/05/opinion/05krugman.html?ref=opinion

    “At first the insurance lobby’s foot soldiers in Congress tried to shout down the public option with the old slogans: private enterprise good, government bad.”

    “At this point, however, they’re trying to kill the public option in more subtle ways. The most recent ruse is the proposal for a “trigger” — the public option will only become available if private insurers fail to meet certain performance criteria. The idea, of course, is to choose those criteria to ensure that the trigger is never pulled.”

    Kennedy’s Absence Felt by Lawmakers on Health Care Bill

    http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/06/04/kennedys-absence-felt-by-lawmakers-on-health-care-bill/

    … a meeting of committee leaders on the health-care legislation, who described a deepening rift between Republicans and Democrats over whether to include a “public option” in the health care bill, that is a government-run insurance program that would compete with private plans.

    President Obama this week sent a letter to lawmakers expressing his support for such an option, but Republicans are adamantly opposed.

    The Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, expressed his opposition in a floor speech on Thursday morning.

    And Mr. Grassley, after the meeting of committee leaders, suggested that the point was virtually non-negotiable.

    Still, Mr. Baucus said that he expected some version of a public option to be included in the bill.

    (Let’s not forget that Dems can pass a public option with no Repub support because of “reconciliation instructions.” And I do believe that’s exactly what they’ll do if Repubs don’t compromise on the “trigger.”)

    (Sometimes Repubs are dumber than a bag of hammers. And if they choose to be obstructionist, they will have sold us all down the river.)

  46. rosettasister Says:

    Fervent Hope:

    Centrist Repubs and Dems are playing their cards close to the vest. Adamantly opposing trigger now, but will compromise at later date.

    Worst Fear:

    Repubs will obstruct. Dems will pass without them. Public option will lead to single-payer. Government-run healthcare. American people become sheep.

    Available Only as a Fallback

    http://www.house.gov/melancon/BlueDogs/Press%20Releases/Health%20Care%20Reform%20-%20Ensuring%20Choice%20in%20the%20Marketplace.pdf

    The Blue Dogs released a memo outlining the conditions under which they would be willing to support new health care legislation.

    The Blue Dogs are demanding a “trigger” in the legislation that would delay the implementation of such a plan until private insurers have failed to meet “specific availability and cost targets.”

    (I fail to see the problem here. If the private sector can do this, and they can, then we don’t need government-run anything. These people will never admit that what they really want is the eventuality of single-payer.)

    Available Only as a Fallback:

    The availability of a public option would occur only as a fallback and in the absence of adequate competition and cost containment.

    Fundamental insurance market reforms and increased choice through the Exchange should improve access and contribute to lower costs.

    However, should the private plans fail to meet specific availability and cost targets, a public option would be triggered and be allowed to compete on a level playing field subject to the conditions outlined above.

    (This gives me hope.)

  48. rosettasister Says:

    These people will disregard the rules of logic to prevent the fallback “trigger” option.

    Are we to believe that those who want public option – single payer are more concerned about deficit spending than the Blue Dogs?

    Puh-lease!

    http://yglesias.thinkprogress.org/archives/2009/06/blue-dog-public-plan-ideas-are-not-what-deficit-control-looks-like.php

    “If you want to expand access to affordable health care, but you’re also concerned about deficits, then clearly the best way to expand access is to ensure the existence of a low-cost public option using Medicare reimbursement rates.

    Both the trigger mechanism and the prohibition on using Medicare rates are “moderate” ideas, but they’re not ideas that promote the coal of fiscal austerity.

    They do the reverse. Which is fine.

    Politicians don’t need to make austerity priority number one at all times.

    But this reality ought to be an important part of the context as this debate plays out.

    Blue Dogs are basically saying they want to put aside one of our best available tools for cost control, while progressive members are fighting for measures that will keep total outlays in check.”

    (This is laughable!)

    “The very idea of good and bad Taliban is stupid.”

    http://www.dawn.com/wps/wcm/connect/dawn-content-library/dawn/the-newspaper/columnists/cyril-almeida-poverty-of-imagination-569

    Second, the kidnapping of the students of the Razmak Cadet College in the North Waziristan Agency. There is a sordid tale of the continuing good Taliban/bad Taliban distinction behind the incident. The bad Taliban in question is Baitullah Mehsud, the scourge of the country in recent years because of his habit of sending suicide bombers to attack security forces and cities and towns. The good guy was supposed to be Hafiz Gul Bahadur, a Taliban commander in North Waziristan and the man tasked with ensuring the safe passage of the students out of his territory.

    Gul Bahadur is considered ‘good’ because he helped the state eject Uzbek militants linked to Al Qaeda from his area and because he doesn’t always get along with Baitullah. But good made common cause with the bad in this instance: Gul Bahadur double-crossed local officials who negotiated with him and tried to hand over the students to Baitullah.

    Why? Because the very idea of good and bad Taliban is stupid. The ‘good’ stay good as long as their interests are not under threat: fearing that the state may be serious about crushing Baitullah – and for that we have to thank President Zardari for blurting it out and making international headlines – Gul Bahadur may have shrewdly, and logically, calculated that he could be next. So, better to help out a enemy now than risk losing his own kingdom later.

    And why kidnap the students at all? Because if a military operation is imminent, wrong-footing the state may cause it to charge in unprepared. Militarily, it amounts to poking your opponent in the eye while he’s still donning his armour and picking up his weapons.

    Oh, yeah. I saw it. I also knew that they secretly opened the next phase blog two days ago.

    My “idea” is still posted.

    This whole “open government” thing is a farce and a crock of sh*t. We already know that ZERO has “no open government,” “no transparancy,” “highly selective participation,” “highly exclusionary collaboration,” “no real capacity building” and “no accountability.”

    ZERO has the most opaque, closed system of government this country has ever seen.

    Too effing bad if they got a lot of different posts about the same thing. They did not bother to explain how to use the site, nor did they exert any effort to catalog the responses, like they do on Forums and Blogs.

    If there was a link on the left side, saying, “Put your birht certificate sugesstions here,” this overload could have been easily avoided.

    Obama’s Lineage

    http://defendourfreedoms.net/2009/06/05/obamas-lineage.aspx

    The Dunham family moved to the Columbia City neighborhood of Seattle, Washington where Stanely landed a job managing a furniture store that was down the street from the regional headquarters of the Communist Party USA.

    Sources indicate that Ann Dunham’s father, Stanley Armour Dunham, was suspected of espionage during World War II and that Boeing has a 1944 security file on Dunham in connection with sabotage of B-17 aircraft at its Wichita plant and the theft of B-29 blueprints.

    Linda Starr Going After Ron Polarik

    “See bold highlights (self explanatory) …”

    http://obamacitizenshipdebate.org/2009/06/see-bold-highlights-self-explanatory.html

    [Legal Question for the lawyers out there: Is a suit for malpractice the same thing as a grievance?]

    I find it especially ironic he feels entitled to appeal sanctions imposed upon him for defauting his clients case, yet files for default against Dr. Orly Taitz like five minutes after the deadline for response and attempts to obtain default judgment against the Sankey Firm even though the answer was filed in a timely fashion.

    The more I learn, the more horrified I am that i entrusted this to a person I thought was my friend. A person I believed deserved my loyalty and friendship.

    A person I defended from all insults and attacks, not once, not twice, not just a hundred times.

    I defended this person countless times and was “in-their-faces” when anyone dared to challenge his integrity or motives.

    One thing this entire disgusting episode has taught me, is that what means friendship to me, is not necessarily what friendship means to another person.

    I am betrayed and discarded like used Kleenex. And he surrounds himself with liars.

    I am ashamed I ever allowed myself to be so deceived. We have all been deceived.

    What have all those donations been used for? Demand answers people.

    Do NOT allow yourselves to be deceived as I was. And if he will not account for the donations voluntarily, go to the US Attorney General.

    I guarantee you, the DOJ must be salivating for a reason to find out for you.

    One thing that will definitely come out, Ron Polarik’s true identity. He has defamed me and I will know his name. I want everyone to know his name.

    (As far as I know, Ron Polarik is his name.)

    Since he placed his life in the hands of a proven criminal, he will learn to live with the consequences.

    He has been deceived and made a fool, too. At least I am not alone.

    Welcome to the Club of the Deceived and Betrayed, Ron. It really feels awful to put your trust and faith in liars who betray you.

    And yet, Ron trashed me out one side of his face, and with the other asked me to tell Orly he isn’t “in cahoots” with the PA gang. HA!

    Just wait until this goes to court. I can’t wait for the questions to be completely answered so that EVERYONE will finally know the truth.

    A lot of truths will come out and when they do, I will be completley vindicated, as will Orly, Ed, Caren and Neil.

    Even James of Rock Salt Publishing will be vindicated.

    Isn’t it amazing that a person who is suing the POTUS to expose the truth is willing to go to such lengths to hide their own dirty little secrets? I find it incredibly sad.

    And to think it is the lawyer seeking the truth and free speech to tell it, but so deseperately wants to shut us up that he requested a gag order to prevent us form reporting crimes to various proper law enforcement agencies!

    Does it make anyone curious why he doesn’t want any law enforcement agencies investigating our claims?

    “willing to go to such lengths to hide their own dirty little secrets”

    (Assuming Linda is referring to Lisa Liberi here. I do not think Berg ever claimed there was more than one Lisa Liberi. As far as I know, that came from MommaE quoting someone else.

    So, I will ask again. If Lisa Liberi does indeed have a criminal past, then is it not still illegal to publish and email her Social Security number as Orly Taitz did.)

    “Voice of Truth” by Casting Crowns

    Oh what I would do to have the faith it takes to climb out of this boat I’m in On to the crashing waves
    To step out of my comfort zone
    Into the realm of the unknown where Jesus stands
    And He’s holding out His hand
    But the waves are calling out my name and they laugh at me
    Reminding me of all the times I’ve tried before and failed
    The waves they keep on telling me time and time aagin
    Boy, you’ll never win… you’ll never win

    But the Voice of Truth tells me a different story
    The Voice of Truth says do not be afraid
    The Voice of Truth says this is for My glory
    Out of all the voices calling out to me
    I will choose to listen and believe
    The Voice of Truth

    Oh what I would do to have the strength it takes to stand before a giant
    With just a sling and a stone
    Surrounded by the sounds of a thousand warriors
    Shaking in their armor
    Wishing they’d have had the strength to stand
    But the giant’s calling out my name and he laughs at me
    Reminding me of all the times I’ve tried before and failed
    The giant keeps on telling me time and time again
    Boy, you’ll never win… you’ll never win

    But the Voice of Truth tells me a different story
    The Voice of Truth says do not be afraid
    The Voice of Truth says this is for My glory
    Out of all the voices calling out to me
    I will choose to listen and believe
    The Voice of Truth

    But the stone was just the right size to put the giant on the ground
    And the waves they don’t seem so high on top of them looking down
    I will soar with the wings of eagles when I stop and listen to the sound of Jesus
    Singing over me

    And the Voice of Truth tells me a different story
    The Voice of Truth says do not be afraid
    The Voice of Truth says this is for My glory
    Out of all the voices calling out to me
    I will choose to listen and believe
    The Voice of Truth
