Just A Closer Walk With Thee

by

final concert

On March 3, 1963, Patsy, though ill with the flu, gave a performance at a benefit show at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall, Kansas City, Kansas, for the family of a disc jockey, Cactus Jack Call, who had recently died in an automobile accident. Also performing on the show were George Jones, George Riddle and The Jones Boys, Billy Walker, Dottie West, Cowboy Copas, Hawkshaw Hawkins, Wilma Lee and Stoney Cooper, and George McCormick and the Clinch Mountain Clan. Cline wore a white chiffon gown and closed the show with her performance to a thunderous ovation. Her last song was the last one she recorded during her last sessions the previous month, “I’ll Sail My Ship Alone.”

Dottie West, wary of Cline flying, pleaded with her to ride back in the car with her and her husband, Bill. Cline, anxious to get home to her children, refused West’s offer, saying, “Don’t worry about me, Hoss. When it’s my time to go, it’s my time.”

    Thus, just like climate-change alarmists, Net Neutrality advocates irrationally warn of some speculative disaster that always seems to be just over the horizon. Rather than wait for some problem to take form before imposing suffocating bureaucratic regulations, they warn, we must act now against this non-existent threat. “”

    At Obama’s Pleasure

    The Washington Times reports that a teacher was told by a 15-year-old high school sophomore that he was having homosexual sex with an “older man.” At the very least, statutory rape occurred. Fox News reported that the teacher violated a state law requiring that he report the abuse. That former teacher, Kevin Jennings, is Obama’s “Safe School Czar.” It’s getting hard to keep track of all of Obama’s problematic appointments. Clearly, the process for vetting White House employees has broken down.

    In this one case, in which Mr. Jennings had a real chance to protect a young boy from a sexual predator, he not only failed to do what the law required, but actually encouraged the relationship.

  15. sdee Says:

    Republicans are already caving on Net Neutrality without a fight. Big government is a disease of al politicians – they revert to the Statist agenda as soon as they think we are not looking.

    “”Republicans told The Washington Post that they were compelled to reconsider the move (to block Net Neutrality) after receiving a call from Genachowski and his staff, who contended that thwarting the FCC’s decision could hurt network operators. ”

    Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg rejects de Vattel formulation
    Posted on Sunday, September 27, 2009 in Citizenship

    Justice Ginsburg
    Jus soli citizenship is based on the land of birth and jus sanguinis is citizenship based on parentage. In the oral arguments of Tuan Anh Nguyen v. INS (No. 99-2071), Justice Ginsburg made it clear that her view is that natural born citizenship can be convened by parentage alone and doesn’t necessarily require birth in the United States. She rejected the formulation of de Vattel that birth in the country of citizen parents is necessary for natural born citizenship, and eligibility to be president.

    Here is the relevant section from the transcript:

    Justice Ginsburg: …My grandson was born in Paris of U.S. citizen parents. I had never considered him a naturalized citizen of the United States….

    Justice Ginsburg: There is a debate over whether my grandson is a natural born citizen. I think he is.

    Listening to the transcript points out how detached from reality are the denialist lawyers like Apuzzo and Donofrio, trying to rewrite American history and citizenship law.

    Attorney Larry Klayman being interviewed about an alleged assault by a member of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s entourage

    The New York City Police Department is covering up an alleged assault on a protester by a member of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s entourage, claims an attorney who just days ago served the radical Middle East leader with notice of a lawsuit over his terror campaign.

    Larry Klayman of the government-watchdog Freedom Watch arrived on the scene in front of Ahmadinejad’s New York hotel Friday shortly after the attack. He said the female demonstrator, who had been protesting Iran’s government, asked him about representing her.

    Suddenly, officers from both the NYPD and the U.S. Secret Service intervened, cutting off the conversation between Klayman and the woman and refusing to allow him further communication with her.

    Baucus Bill Would Bar Illegal Immigrants From Insurance Exchanges

    http://prescriptions.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/09/14/baucus-bill-would-bar-illegal-immigrants-from-insurance-exchanges/

    The White House has said that illegal immigrants would be able to purchase insurance outside of the exchange, though at this point it is unclear how much of a market would exist outside of the exchange.

    The sensitivity of the immigration issue was highlighted during Mr. Obama’s speech to a joint session of Congress when Representative Joe Wilson, Republican of South Carolina, shouted, “You lie,” in response to the president’s assertion that illegal immigrants would not be covered by his health care plan.

    Mr. Baucus said that his group was focused on the larger goal of providing affordable insurance to the overwhelming majority of American citizens and did not want to be distracted by the immigration issue.

    “This is a health care reform bill,” he said. “This is not an immigration bill. We are just trying to do our very best to enact health care reform, affordable high quality health care reform. We just can’t in a lot of other issues that aren’t central, that aren’t core to health care reform.”

    Asked if the restriction on purchasing insurance might prove counter-productive by prompting more illegal immigrants to seek emergency room treatment at taxpayer expense, Mr. Baucus said: “There are ways for people to get health care.”

    (You can stop illegals from receiving subsidies, but I don’t see how you stop them from going out and purchasing a plan from a private insurer on their own. That would be impossible to enforce. And since illegals are here, and they are, why shouldn’t they be paying premiums like the rest of us? When they end up in an emergency room instead, guess who those costs are passed on to? The consumer – you and me.)

  43. jrh Says:

    Just for the record, this is the oath of office for the Supreme Court. May they follow it exactly.

    “I, _________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

    White House
    Secret Service Probing Facebook Poll on Obama
    Updated 8:15 p.m.
    On Sunday, a blogger at The Political Carnival noticed a user-generated poll on Facebook that asked, “Should Obama be killed?” The blogger wrote about the poll, then called the Secret Service to alert them to it.

    A day later, Facebook has taken down the poll, and the Secret Service is looking into the matter, the Associated Press reports:

    The U.S. Secret Service is investigating an online survey that asked whether people thought President Barack Obama should be assassinated, officials said Monday. The choices were: No, Maybe, Yes, and Yes if he cuts my health care.

    The poll, posted Saturday on Facebook, was taken off the popular social networking site quickly after company officials were alerted to its existence.

    A Facebook official said the question was created not by the company but by an independent person using an add-on application that has been suspended from the site.

    “The third-party application that enabled an individual user to create the offensive poll was brought to our attention this morning,” said Barry Schnitt, Facebook’s spokesman for policy.

    Because the application was disabled, the responses to the nonscientific polls are not available.

    “We’re working with the U.S. Secret Service, but they’ll need to provide any details of their investigation,” Schnitt said.

    “We are aware of [the poll], and we will take the appropriate investigative steps,” said Darrin Blackford, a Secret Service spokesman. “We take these things seriously.”

    UPDATE: The blogger who said she’d alerted the Secret Service to the poll and posts under a pseudonym has posted an update, saying the agency called to thank her for her assistance.

    So Schumer’s public “option” argument is basically well people like Medicare, if you’re against a public “option” you must be anti-Medicare! Schumer plays to the least common denominator. i.e., he believes Americans really are that dumb to buy his argument. Or maybe Schumer really IS that dumb!

    Hello, Medicare and Medicaid and all other govt-run health care is bankrupting this great land!

    Growing Debt and Unfunded Liabilities

    • The total public debt is now at $11.8 trillion.

    • Interest payments alone on debt came to $452 billion in 2008.

    • The Congressional Budget Office states that by next year America’s debt will exceed 60% of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP). In 2023, our debt will exceed 100% of the GDP.

    • *** The unfunded liability for Social Security is $17.5 trillion in 2009, according to the National Center for Policy Analysis. Medicare Part A is underfunded by $36.7 trillion, Part B by $37.0 trillion and Part D by $15.6 trillion, bringing the total unfunded liability for Social Security and Medicare to some $106.8 trillion! ***

    • The unfunded liability for state and local pension plans was pegged at $400 billion, but American Enterprise Institute scholar Andrew Biggs estimates the actual amount of unfunded liability is more than $3.5 trillion if analyzed in the same manner as private sector plans.

    (Please make no mistake – Senators and Representatives who push a public “option” really want single-payer. And thank God Americans were smart enough to figure out what public “option” really meant.)

  46. rosettasister Says:

    Republicans push back | 11:30 a.m.

    Mr. Grassley says if you want competition, “you don’t want the government” running health care. “It’s not a competitor, it’s a predator.”

    He says Medicare is “part of the social fabric of America,” but “there’s a lot wrong with it and this bill helps correct it.”

    Senator Orrin Hatch, Republican of Utah, calls Mr. Rockefeller’s amendment “a Trojan horse” for a single-payer system.

    He adds: “Medicare is on a path to a fiscal meltdown,” underpaying doctors by 20 percent and hospitals by 30 percent, compared to private sector. He says this is forcing providers to “stop seeing our nation’s seniors.”

  47. rosettasister Says:

    Conrad is making some good points about health care in other countries. Basically he’s saying countries like Switzerland, etc. do have all private insurers (not govt-run) but these private insurers are not-for-profit like his coops.

    That’s true up to a point. These private insurers cannot make a profit on “basic” plans, but they do make a profit on supplemental plans which, as far as I know, most of the citizens purchase.

  48. Troy Says:

  49. rosettasister Says:

    Senator Conrad warns he’ll vote ‘No’ | 12:02 p.m.

    Senator Kent Conrad, Democrat of North Dakota, has already signaled his dislike of the public option, and now, in this hearing, he is making it clear that a public option offered by his fellow Democrats will not win his vote.

    The problem with Mr. Rockefeller’s proposal, he says, is that the reimbursement rates are tied to Medicare, which are lower than actual costs. In fact, Mr. Conrad says, his home state has the second-lowest level of Medicare reimbursement in the country. If North Dakota relied on Medicare levels of reimbursement, he said, “every major hospital” in his state would go broke. “I can’t possibly support an amendment that does that,” he said.

    ***

    Update | 12:11 p.m.

    Mr. Conrad says that “we’ve gotten locked in a really sterile debate” that promotes either the status quo or the public option. He says he has a good alternative, which would be to set up co-ops, although he doesn’t spell out his proposal at this point. He merely says that this alternative has been adopted in other countries, provides universal coverage and does “a better job of controlling costs and have higher-quality outcomes than ours.”

    Lying About The Public Option With Polls

    http://legalinsurrection.blogspot.com/2009/09/lying-about-public-option-with-polls.html

    The supporters of a government-run “public option” are touting a CBS/NY Times poll which purportedly shows that 65% of people support a public option. But examine how the question is framed, and it is clear that the question is intended to elicit a favorable response:

    “Would you favor or oppose the government offering everyone a government administered health insurance plan — something like the Medicare coverage that people 65 and older get — that would compete with private insurance plans?”

    What if the question were worded differently, such as:

    • “President Obama has said that the current Medicare cost structure is unsustainable. Would you favor or oppose the government offering a similar plan to everyone?”

    • “Would you be in favor of the government offering everyone a government administered health insurance plan — something like the Medicare coverage that people 65 and older get — even if it meant that private insurers could not compete with the government?”

    • “Would you be in favor of the government offering everyone a government administered health insurance plan — something like the Medicare coverage that people 65 and older get — even if it meant that some employers would drop their private coverage for employees?”

    I doubt that questions which included the negative aspects of a public option would result in such positive responses. The question is framed to elicit a misleading answer which then can be used by supporters of the public option to overstate public support.

  53. rosettasister Says:

    One of these things is not like the other:

    Update | 12:42 p.m.

    Senator John Ensign, Republican of Nevada, asks: If a public option is so popular, why do so many Democrats have a problem with it? The reason, he says, is that it is not popular. “Constituents are really afraid of it,” he says.

    In a bid to wrangle concessions from the Blue Dog Coalition on healthcare reform, House leaders Thursday released CBO estimates for liberals’ preferred version of the public option that show $85 billion more in savings than for the version the Blue Dogs prefer.

    Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, D-S.D., a Blue Dog co-chair, said any possible new momentum toward a public option tethered to Medicare rates is, in part, “because of the cost issue” and the updated CBO score.

    The original House bill required the public plan to pay providers 5 percent more than Medicare reimbursement rates. But as part of a package of concessions to Blue Dogs, the House Energy and Commerce Committee accepted an amendment that requires the HHS Secretary to negotiate rates with providers. That version of the plan will save only $25 billion.

    In total, a public plan based on Medicare rates would save $110 billion over 10 years. That is $20 billion more than earlier estimates, a spokesman for House Speaker Pelosi said.

    The numbers are based on oral communications between CBO staff and Pelosi’s office, a Pelosi spokesman said.

    *** They do not represent an official CBO estimate. ***

    (Well, I really don’t understand all of this, but it seems some Dems in the House are emphasizing these “savings” in order to have a more robust public “option” coming out of the House. What difference does it make if you have savings in one part of a going concern, when that same going concern as a whole is going broke?)

    (I predict there won’t be a public “option” in Senate Bill, there will be in House Bill, and they’ll settle on Snowe’s trigger or something like it in conference.)

    Here are my updated legislative projections for health reform:

    1. Cut a bipartisan deal on a comprehensive bill with 3 Senate Republicans, leading to a law this year; (0.1% chance, down from 5%)

    2. Pass a partisan comprehensive bill through the regular Senate process with 60 59 Senate Democrats + one Republican, leading to a law this year; (20% chance, down from 25%)

    3. Pass a partisan comprehensive bill through the reconciliation process with 51 of 59 Senate Democrats, leading to a law this year; (50% chance, up from 25%)

    4. Fall back to a much more limited bill that becomes law this year; (24.9% chance, down from 50%)

    5. No bill becomes law this year. (steady at 5% chance)

    (“through the reconciliation process” – Mr. Hennessey may be right about this probable outcome. But if he is, Dems cannot jam through a public “option” because of reconciliation rules, but they may be able to get a trigger “option” through.)

    You’re welcome grammy!

    There’s a lot at stake, and I think some on the left are hoping we’ll stop paying such close attention.

    Believe Judd Gregg and others who keep telling us that in fact HCR will pass this year.

    Because of reconciliation, we have to be extra vigilant.

    Neither side is going to get everything they want, so we have to make sure our representatives fashion the best bill possible that has a chance of becoming law.

    A PRIMER ON RECONCILIATION

    http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/archive/2009/09/29/2082655.aspx

    The sidecar

    If Democratic leaders decided to use reconciliation, the Conventional Wisdom is that the health-care bill would be split into two different bills.

    One bill would be the reconciliation bill itself, which would deal with all the measures that address government spending and saving. That would included things like expanding Medicaid, making cuts to Medicare, creating government subsidies for low- and middle-income families, and imposing taxes and fees on businesses.

    The other bill, what Sen. Judd Gregg calls “the sidecar,” would address all the other intangibles, especially the measures addressing insurance reform. But because it would not be passed under the rules of reconciliation, the sidecar would be subjected to filibusters, and would more than likely require 60 votes for passage. The reconciliation part of the bill could be done in a week; the sidecar could take a few weeks.

    (So I guess the question remains, would a public “option” or coop or trigger “option” be included in “the reconciliation bill” or “the sidecar?”)

    US eyes energy, financial sanctions on Iran

    American officials say Obama administration will expand its own penalties against Iranian companies, press for greater international sanctions against foreign firms that do business in country unless Islamic Republic can prove that its nuclear activities are not aimed at developing atomic weapon

    http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3782676,00.html

    The Obama administration is working up plans to push for new sanctions against Iran, targeting its energy, financial and telecommunications sectors if it does not comply with international demands to come clean about its nuclear program, US officials said.

    The officials said Monday that the US would expand its own penalties against Iranian companies and press for greater international sanctions against foreign firms, largely European, that do business in the country unless Iran can prove that its nuclear activities are not aimed at developing an atomic weapon.

    Among the ideas being considered are asset freezes and travel bans against Iranian and foreign businesses and individuals who do business in those areas, the officials said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the measures were still under review.

    The proposed sanctions would largely focus on investment in Iran’s energy infrastructure and development, the officials said. Until now, the sanctions have dealt mainly with companies and people suspected of buying or selling weapons of mass destruction or their components.

    A German Lady Remembers and Speaks
    Lori Kalner

    In Germany, when Hitler came to power, it was a time of terrible financial depression. Money was worth nothing. In Germany people lost homes and jobs, just like in the American Depression in the 1930s, which we have read about in Thoene’s Shiloh books. In those days, in my homeland, Adolph Hitler was elected to power by promising “Change.”

    He blamed the “Zionists” around the world for all our problems. He told everyone it was greedy Zionist Bankers who had caused every problem we had. He promised when he was leader, the greedy Zionist bankers would be punished. The Zionists, he promised, would be wiped off the face of the earth. So Hitler was elected to power by only 1/3 the popular vote.

    A coalition of other political parties in parliament made him supreme leader.. Then, when he was leader, he disgraced and expelled everyone in parliament who did not go along with him.

    Yes. Change came to my homeland as the new leader promised it would. The teachers in German schools began to teach the children to sing songs in praise of Hitler.

    This was the beginning of the Hitler Youth movement. It began with praise of the Fuhrer’s programs on the lips of innocent children.
    Hymns in praise of Hitler and his programs were being sung in the schoolrooms and in the playyard.

    Little girls and boys joined hands and sang these songs as they walked home from school.

    My brother came home and told Papa what was happening at school. The political hymns of children proclaimed Change was coming to our homeland and the Fuhrer was a leader we could trust..

    I will never forget my father’s face. Grief and fear. He knew that the best propaganda of the Nazis was song on the lips of little children.

    That evening before he said grace at the dinner table, he placed his hands upon the heads of my brothers and me and prayed the Living Word upon us from Jeremiah 1:4-5.

    ‘Now the Word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you we re born I consecrated you;
    I appointed you a prophet to The nations.”

    Soon the children’s songs praising the Fuhrer were heard everywhere on the streets and over the radio. “With our Fuhrer to lead us, we can do it! We can change the world!”

    Soon after that Papa, a pastor, was turned away from visiting elderly parishioners in hospitals.. The people he had come to bring comfort of God’s Word, were “no longer there.” Where had they vanished to while under nationalized health care? It became an open secret.

    The elderly and sick began to disappear from hospitals feet first as “mercy killing” became the policy.

    Children with disabilities and those who had Down syndrome were euthanized.

    People whispered, “Maybe it is better for them now. Put them out of misery. They are no longer suffering.And, of course, their death is better for the treasury of our nation. Our taxes no longer must be spent to care for such a burden.” And so murder was called mercy.

    The government took over private business. Industry and health care were “nationalized.” (NA-ZI means National Socialist Party) The businesses of all Jews were seized. (Perhaps you remember our story in Berlin on Krystalnacht in the book Munich Signature)

    The world and God’s word were turned upside down. Hitler promised the people economic Change? Not change. It was, rather, Lucifer’s very ancient Delusion leading to Destruction.

    What began with the propaganda of children singing a catchy tune ended in the deaths of millions of children. The reality of what came upon us is so horrible that you in th is present generation cannot imagine it. Our suffering is too great to ever tell in a book or show in a black and white newsreel.

    When I spoke to Bodie about some of these things, she wept and said she could not bear to write them.

    Perhaps one day she will, but I asked her, “who could bear to read our suffering?” Yet with my last breaths I warn every Christian and Jew now in the name of the Lord, Unless your course of the church in America is spiritually changed now, returning to the Lord, there are new horrors yet to come.

    I trembled last night when I heard the voices of American children raised in song, praising the name of Obama, the charismatic fellow who claims he is the American Messiah. Yet I have heard what this man Obama says about abortion and the “mercy killing” of tiny babies who are not wanted.

    There are so few of us left to warn you.

    I have heard that there are 69 million Catholics in America and 70 million Evangelical Christians.

    Where are your voices? Where is your outrage? Where is passion and your vote? Do you vote based on an abortionist’s empty promises and economics? Or do you vote according to the Bible?

    Thus says the Lord about every living child still in the womb.

    “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you.”

    I have experienced the signs of the politics of Death in my youth. I see them again now. Christians! Unless you stand up now, you will lose your freedom of religion.

    In America priests and preachers have alread y lost their freedom to speak openly from their pulpits of moral danger in political candidates.

    They cannot legally instruct you of which candidate holds fast to the precepts of scripture! American law forbids this freedom of speech to conservative pastors or they will lose their “tax exempt” status. And yet I have heard the words of Obama’s pastor Damning America!
    I have heard the words of Obama damning and mocking all of you in small towns because you “Cling to your religion.”

    But I am a woman whose name is unknown. My life is recorded as a work of fiction. I have no fear of reprisal when I speak truth to you from the pages of a book. I am an old woman and will soon go to be with my Lord. I have no fear for myself, but for all of you and for your children, I tremble. I tremble at the hymns to a political leaders which your children will sing at school. (Though even now a hymn or a prayer to God and our Lord Jesus is against the law in public school!) I pray you will personally heed this warning for the sake of your children and your grandchildren. Do not be deceived.

    The Lord in Jeremiah 1:7-8 commands every believer to speak up!

    “Do not say, ‘I am only a youth,’ for to all whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them for I am with you, declares the Lord!”

    I am in Prayer for you, and for the Church! Spoken to you in the authority of Jesus the Christ, the Name Above All Names,

    Would Sanctions on Gas Imports Really Hurt Iran?

    http://www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,1926655,00.html?xid=rss-topstories

    Blocking one-third of Iran’s gasoline supplies might seem relatively simple.

    The country’s imports come from a fairly small number of firms, including Swiss-Dutch companies Vitol and Trafigura and India’s Reliance Industries.

    New U.S. sanctions would force those companies to choose between doing business in the U.S. or doing business with Iran — a no-brainer for most firms.

    “They have bigger fish to fry [than Iran],” says Mark Fitzpatrick, a former State Department official and now director of Nuclear Nonproliferation at the International Institute for Strategic Studies in London.

    “They all have bigger markets elsewhere, including in the U.S.”

    Indeed, even talk of a refined-petroleum blockade convinced British Petroleum to halt its exports to Iran last year.

    Oil analysts believe Reliance has suspended sales to Iran too.

    But that early talk gave Iran time to prepare for new sanctions.

    Earlier this year, it began importing far more than it was using.

    Intelligence consultancy Stratfor noted last week that Iran has probably stockpiled at least three months’ worth of gasoline.

    The National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Co. estimates that the country has some 15.7 million bbl. of gasoline — about four months’ worth — stockpiled in tankers on land and off its Persian Gulf coast.

    After BP and Reliance halted exports to Iran, Chinese state-owned oil companies filled the gap, supplying about one-third of Iran’s gasoline imports as of last month, according to the Financial Mail.

    Lawrence Eagles, head of commodities research at JPMorgan, told the paper last week that Iran was importing 30,000 bbl. to 40,000 bbl. a day from Chinese companies.

    And Malaysia’s state-owned oil company Petronas delivered three shipments of gas to Iran last month, each containing about 93,000 bbl., according to Stratfor.

    U.S. officials believe going after oil imports may still be worth it.

    Rather than passing laws or attempting to push new sanctions through the U.N. Security Council — where Russia and China could veto them — officials are quietly approaching companies directly, convincing executives that the cost of doing business with Iran has become too high.

    In the past few months, Washington has leaned on insurance companies that underwrite Iran’s shipments abroad and as many as 80 banks that handle financial transactions for the country.

    In January, the U.S. slapped a $350 million fine on Britain’s Lloyds TSB Bank for funneling money from Iran and Sudan into U.S. institutions.

    “The U.S. Treasury Department has been encouraging major firms to be cautious in their dealings with Iran,” says Fitzpatrick.

    “They are informally advising them not to be investing in the Iranian oil and gas sector.”

    The message seems to be getting across.

    The French energy giant Total recently failed to bid on a major block in Iran’s South Pars field — the world’s biggest natural gas field — after spending years eyeing the business.

    Like other energy companies, it calculated that its Iran business was becoming a problem it could live without.

    (If Netanyahu and Shimon Peres are calling for beefed-up sanctions, then that’s what Obama should do. I’m guessing that is what a majority of Israelis are calling for as well. And I’m guessing the Pentagon has some “contingency” plans on the shelf just in case. And for that, Bush would have been called a warmonger, Obama will be called wise and forward-thinking.)

    Montana Town Occupied By Private Paramilitary Security Force
    by DefendUSx September 29, 2009 13:05
    Paul Joseph Watson
    Prison Planet.com
    Tuesday, September 29, 2009

    A private security force whose biggest role is helping the U.S. government to “combat terrorism” is now patrolling the streets of a town in Montana, acting as law enforcement but accountable to nobody and operating completely outside the limitations of the U.S. constitution in a chilling throwback to the brownshirts of Nazi Germany.

    The American Police Force organization is a paramilitary unit that “provides surveillance, investigative, and military services across the world,” according to its website, which shows men dressed in military fatigues carrying machine guns.

    “As part of our mission, APF plays a critical role in helping the U.S. government meet vital homeland security and national defense needs. Within the last 5 years the United States has been far and away our #1 client. Technologies, programs, and services performed by APF have played a very important role in U.S. military and civilian efforts to protect our homeland and combat terrorism,” the website states.

    APF were originally contracted to provide security at a previously empty detention center in Hardin, a small town in Montana, but are now patrolling the streets driving SUV’s with “Police Department” printed on them despite the fact that Hardin doesn’t have a police department. American Police Force has no jurisdiction in the area because it is a private organization, not a police force.

    According to Two Rivers Authority officials, having the private security force patrol the streets was not part of the contract. “I have no idea. I really don’t because that’s not been a part of any of the discussions we’ve had with any of them,” Two Rivers Authority’s Al Peterson told KULR 8 News. Peterson said that patrolling the streets was on the “wishlist” of APF’s Captain Michael.

    The American Police Force is a shady outfit shrouded in suspicion. According to an Associated Press report, questions over the legitimacy of the organization abound.

    “Government contract databases show no record of the company. Security industry representatives and federal officials said they had never heard of it. On its Web site, the company lists as its headquarters a building in Washington near the White House that holds “virtual offices.” A spokeswoman for the building said American Police Force never completed its application to use the address,” reports AP.

    Furthermore, APF was tasked with filling the empty Hardin detention center with inmates, without any clear indication of where those prisoners would come from.

    “It’s unclear where the company will get the inmates for the jail. Montana says it’s not sending inmates to the jail, and neither are federal officials in the state,” according to the report.

    Maybe the inmates will be the local population of Hardin if American Police Force is allowed to continue to pose as a law enforcement outfit in the town, which is exactly what they intend to do for at least another month.

    Having a private security force whose stated mission is to help the U.S. government “combat terrorism” patrol the streets of small towns in America without even having the authority to do so from local authorities is obviously a frightening pretext and harks back to the private paramilitary forces that helped Adolf Hitler rise to power in Nazi Germany.

    Many fear that if martial law is declared in response to a flu pandemic or other emergency, private security forces such as APF will be used by the government to oppress citizens by operating outside of the law.

    This is completely unconstitutional and a flagrant threat to the liberty and security of the population of Hardin. The County Sheriff is effectively breaking the law if he doesn’t immediately kick APF out of the area and end the occupation of the town by a private paramilitary army.

    American Police Force: Web Sites Offer Hints About Jail Company
    September 21st, 2009

    The Billings Gazette has published new information about American Police Force. The author, Ruffin Prevost, contacted me after seeing my post on the matter.

    I have to clarify something. It’s not that big of a deal, but I feel as though it’s worth getting right. Here’s the full text of the email that I sent to Ruffin Prevost, after he asked me some questions over email:

    Hello Ruffin,

    One of my core assumptions is that fraud is a primary component of the
    “Global War on Terror.” (Recently renamed: “Overseas Contingency
    Operation.”) As such, I routinely follow stories about mercenaries
    (private military contractors).

    With regard to “American Police Force,” I smelled a rat immediately upon
    reading that AP piece cited in my post. That story read like something
    out of The Onion:

    “American Police Force also is promising to invest $30 million in new
    projects for the city, including a military and law enforcement training
    center with a 250-bed dormitory and an expansion of the jail to 2,000

    American Police Force: Web Sites Offer Hints About Jail Company
    September 21st, 2009

    The Billings Gazette has published new information about American Police Force. The author, Ruffin Prevost, contacted me after seeing my post on the matter.

    I have to clarify something. It’s not that big of a deal, but I feel as though it’s worth getting right. Here’s the full text of the email that I sent to Ruffin Prevost, after he asked me some questions over email:

    Hello Ruffin,

    One of my core assumptions is that fraud is a primary component of the
    “Global War on Terror.” (Recently renamed: “Overseas Contingency
    Operation.”) As such, I routinely follow stories about mercenaries
    (private military contractors).

    With regard to “American Police Force,” I smelled a rat immediately upon
    reading that AP piece cited in my post. That story read like something
    out of The Onion:

    “American Police Force also is promising to invest $30 million in new
    projects for the city, including a military and law enforcement training
    center with a 250-bed dormitory and an expansion of the jail to 2,000
    beds. The company says it will build a homeless shelter, offer free
    health care for city residents and even deliver meals to the needy.”

    I just thought that I’d take a quick look around to see if there was
    anything unusual with the whois information, the host, other sites
    hosted on the same machine, etc. It turned out that a there was a lot of
    weirdness to chase down.

    Kevin Flaherty

    Now, here’s what Ruffin Prevost wrote in his article (full text below):

    Flaherty, owner of the Cryptogon blog, said that plans by APF to provide Hardin with a homeless shelter, computers for schools, free meals for the needy and an animal shelter “read like something out of The Onion,” a satirical newspaper.

    While it’s possible that computers for schools and an animal shelter are part of American Police Force’s alleged plans, I didn’t mention those specific projects.

    Anyway, this is interesting and raises many more questions about what is actually going on.

    Web sites offer hints about jail company
    By RUFFIN PREVOST Gazette Wyoming Bureau | Posted: Friday, September 18, 2009 11:05 pm

    Public records available from state and federal courts and from Web site registrations have raised new questions about a company contracted to operate a detention facility in Hardin, as well as a potential supplier of police equipment to the venture.

    Local officials have released almost no details on American Police Force, and company representatives have been tight-lipped, leaving everyone from Hardin residents to a New Zealand blogger turning to the Internet for answers.

    Separate research efforts by The Billings Gazette and others turned up connections and similarities between the APF Web site and sites for other little-known defense procurement companies.

    All of the Web sites share similarities in design, and some include exactly the same phrases, a red flag to Kevin Flaherty, an American blogger living in New Zealand who writes about private military contractors.

    Flaherty, owner of the Cryptogon blog, said that plans by APF to provide Hardin with a homeless shelter, computers for schools, free meals for the needy and an animal shelter “read like something out of The Onion,” a satirical newspaper.

    Flaherty said his online research revealed “a lot of weirdness to chase down.”

    Public records show that the APF Web site, Americanpolicegroup.com, was first registered on May 15, about two weeks after an effort by the Two Rivers Authority to pursue prisoners from Guantanamo Bay made national headlines.

    A section of text on the APF site refers to the company’s “U.S. Training Center,” and matches word for word text from the Web site for Xe, formerly Blackwater. That company’s U.S. Training Center is touted as the largest facility of its kind.

    APF representatives have said that their company is a subsidiary of an undisclosed parent corporation founded in 1984. Blackwater was started in 1997.

    Public Internet records show that the APF Web site is one of six hosted on a single Web server, including a site for Defense Product Solutions.

    Both share the same double-eagle logo, and the same company, Purepoint Design, developed both Web sites. No one answered a call to Purepoint’s office in Newport Beach, Calif.

    A section of text on the Defense Product Solutions Web site matches word for word text found on Web sites for Allied Defense Systems and Defense Logistic Services, all promising a similarly exhaustive range of military products and services.

    Public records for those companies and others with similar Web sites – including Defense Contracting and Consulting, and Worldwide Military Exchange – all show connections to Edward Angelino, a government contractor in Huntington Beach, Calif.

    Angelino said that he is not an owner of APF and has had not met with anyone from Hardin, but added that he has been in discussions with APF over the past four months about supplying police and prison gear for use at the Hardin facility.

    “Our role is simply, if we land a contract, to provide some supplies to the guards themselves and what they need,” he said, adding that there is “nothing concrete, nothing in writing” with APF.

    According to documents filed in connection with a civil lawsuit in Superior Court of California in Orange County, Angelino graduated from Al-Roda High School in Kuwait City, Kuwait, and is a U.S. citizen.

    Sometimes referred to in court documents by the first name “Emad,” Angelino lists on his resume degrees in electrical engineering from California State University, Fresno and engineering management from the U.S. Air Force Academy.

    Public government procurement records show that he has serviced tens of millions of dollars in federal contracts, supplying items as varied as sporting goods, turbine parts and police gear.

    Angelino said APF is a separate entity, and that the only company he operates, Allied Defense Systems, has been in business since 2005.

    He said that he had “no idea” why there are similarities between Web sites for his company and APF.

    Angelino is named in state and federal civil lawsuits dating back to 2004, including one dispute stemming from a $17 million contract to provide police gear to U.S. troops and Iraqi police.

    Owners of a business that employed Angelino got a temporary restraining order, and later an injunction, barring him from acting on behalf of the company, said Ira Rivin, an Orange County attorney for the plaintiffs.

    “Our claim was that Mr. Angelino was attempting to take over the company for himself,” Rivin said, adding that the case was settled on the day it was scheduled to go to trial. He did not disclose details of the settlement.

    Angelino also was named in a federal civil suit in Kentucky filed by U.S. Cavalry, the distributor of police equipment in that same contract. Company executives declined to comment specifically on that case, which also was settled.

    The complaint alleges that the company Angelino had managed failed to honor the terms of a joint venture with U.S. Cavalry, resulting in additional costs and logistical complications.

    In answers to both complaints, Angelino states that he was attempting to work with U.S. Cavalry to ensure compliance with an existing contract after his employers failed to follow through on promises to finance the deal.

    U.S. Cavalry, a supplier for 35 years of uniforms and other gear for military and law enforcement, was able to successfully complete the contract, said Dennis Garvey, the company’s chief operating officer.

    Garvey said that a lack of oversight by overwhelmed federal supply-chain workers has created a gold rush to fulfill contracts for homeland security and in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Since 9/11, many small companies “became very proficient in tracking out contract opportunities and worrying later about how they were going to fulfill them,” Garvey said, adding that many other small contractors are competent and reputable.

    “But a lot of small companies, if they run into trouble and get caught not playing by the rules, can close down and open up under another name next week,” he said.

    “There’s a lot of people attracted by all the money being spent, and the normal due diligence done on some contracts is often not as tightly controlled as you would expect,” he said.

    Obama Risks a Domestic Military ‘Intervention’

    Tuesday, September 29, 2009 10:35 AM
    By: John L. Perry Article Font Size

    There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America’s military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the “Obama problem.” Don’t dismiss it as unrealistic.

    America isn’t the Third World. If a military coup does occur here it will be civilized. That it has never happened doesn’t mean it wont. Describing what may be afoot is not to advocate it. So, view the following through military eyes:

    Officers swear to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Unlike enlisted personnel, they do not swear to “obey the orders of the president of the United States.”

    Top military officers can see the Constitution they are sworn to defend being trampled as American institutions and enterprises are nationalized.

    They can see that Americans are increasingly alarmed that this nation, under President Barack Obama, may not even be recognizable as America by the 2012 election, in which he will surely seek continuation in office.

    They can see that the economy — ravaged by deficits, taxes, unemployment, and impending inflation — is financially reliant on foreign lender governments.

    They can see this president waging undeclared war on the intelligence community, without whose rigorous and independent functions the armed services are rendered blind in an ever-more hostile world overseas and at home.

    They can see the dismantling of defenses against missiles targeted at this nation by avowed enemies, even as America’s troop strength is allowed to sag.

    They can see the horror of major warfare erupting simultaneously in two, and possibly three, far-flung theaters before America can react in time.

    They can see the nation’s safety and their own military establishments and honor placed in jeopardy as never before.

    So, if you are one of those observant military professionals, what do you do?

    Wait until this president bungles into losing the war in Afghanistan, and Pakistan’s arsenal of nuclear bombs falls into the hands of militant Islam?

    Wait until Israel is forced to launch air strikes on Iran’s nuclear-bomb plants, and the Middle East explodes, destabilizing or subjugating the Free World?

    What happens if the generals Obama sent to win the Afghan war are told by this president (who now says, “I’m not interested in victory”) that they will be denied troops they must have to win? Do they follow orders they cannot carry out, consistent with their oath of duty? Do they resign en masse?

    Or do they soldier on, hoping the 2010 congressional elections will reverse the situation? Do they dare gamble the national survival on such political whims?

    Anyone who imagines that those thoughts are not weighing heavily on the intellect and conscience of America’s military leadership is lost in a fool’s fog.

    Will the day come when patriotic general and flag officers sit down with the president, or with those who control him, and work out the national equivalent of a “family intervention,” with some form of limited, shared responsibility?

    Imagine a bloodless coup to restore and defend the Constitution through an interim administration that would do the serious business of governing and defending the nation. Skilled, military-trained, nation-builders would replace accountability-challenged, radical-left commissars. Having bonded with his twin teleprompters, the president would be detailed for ceremonial speech-making.

    Military intervention is what Obama’s exponentially accelerating agenda for “fundamental change” toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America. A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama’s radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible.

    Unthinkable? Then think up an alternative, non-violent solution to the
    Obama problem. Just don’t shrug and say, “We can always worry about that later.”

    In the 2008 election, that was the wistful, self-indulgent, indifferent reliance on abnegation of personal responsibility that has sunk the nation into this morass.

    Working Families Party /ACORN and the local Democratic Party Officials are at the center of a massive voter fraud scandal in New York

    The dirtiest administration, without equal, in the history of America.

    Working Families Party /ACORN Voter Fraud in Troy, NY. Moe Lane (hat tip Larwyn)

    Not voter registration fraud – which is, by the way, voter fraud – but actual, no-fooling, they-forged-absentee-ballots voter fraud:
    Affidavits: Ballot abuse rampant

    Dozens of forged and fraudulent absentee ballots from people registered to vote on the Working Families Party line were filed in the Sept. 15 primary elections in Troy, the Times Union has learned.

    Documents at the county Board of Elections show the fraudulent ballots were handled by or prepared on behalf of various elected officials and leaders and operatives for the Democratic and Working Families parties. A Troy housing authority employee, Anthony Defiglio, who sources said oversees vacant properties for the Troy Housing Authority, also handled many of the fraudulent ballots, according to public records and interviews with voters who said they were duped.

    Via Big Government, which helpfully points out that the Working Families Party is another facet of ACORN, to the point where they share current officers like Bertha Lewis and former affiliates like Patrick Gaspard (who is actually working even now with the WFP in local NY politics). This should surprise fewer people than it will; it’s long been an open secret that most of these groups live in each other’s pockets.

    According to the Times Union: (hat tip Jonathan Galt)

    Dozens of forged and fraudulent absentee ballots from people registered to vote on the Working Families Party line were filed in the Sept. 15 primary elections in Troy.

    Documents at the county Board of Elections show the fraudulent ballots were handled by or prepared on behalf of various elected officials and leaders and operatives for the Democratic and Working Families parties.

    There may be as many as 50 absentee ballots that were forged, according to people close to the case. Countywide, there were 126 absentee ballots applied for on the Working Families Party line.

    What isn’t mentioned is that WFP is nothing more than a front group for ACORN. Or as Roger Stone put it:

    The Working Families Party is not about working people or families and it isn’t really a party. The WFP is a wholly owned subsidiary of ACORN. Bertha Lewis co-chair of the Working Families Party is the Executive Director of New York ACORN. New York ACORN leader, Steven Kest was the moving force in forming the party and WFP headquarters are located at the same address as ACORN’s national and New York office at 88 Third Avenue in Brooklyn, New York.

    WFP is essentially a money funnel which pays for an aggressive door to door canvas. Largely funded by unions, the WFP is ACORN’s “political arm” in New York State. Candidates supported by the Working Families Party and issues supported by ACORN are both advocated on the door steps of target voter homes as they share one major voter canvas.

    Adding more evidence to the ACORN-WFP link is Erick Erickson’s examination of Bertha Lewis’ leaked rolodex. Erickson predicted that “With ACORN’s growing negative reputation, it is only a matter of time before it spills over to the Working Families Party.”

    Olbermann Readies a Glenn Beck Muckfest

    Updated, 11:50 pm
    UPDATE: It was less of a Smackdown and more of a 5th-grade style playground fight. MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann did not deliver the goods he sought on his right-wing adversary, Glenn Beck. But he did make clear that in his view, Beck’s attack on President Obama’s green jobs czar, Van Jones, was all about “latent racism.”

    Olbermann charged that the coordinated effort to oust Jones, like the birther movement, was part of a “Candyland world of racism” in which President Obama’s detractors will adopt “any rationalization” to conceal their true racially based motives.

    But Olbermann had no dirt to dish on Beck, despite asking his viewers and blog readers to help him dig deep. He said he had decided to take the high road because “I have something Mr. Beck does not: a conscience, the respect of my colleagues and self-respect.”

    Plus, he said, “What could we possibly find out that would be more humiliating to Glenn Beck, more embarrassing to Glenn Beck, more disruptive about Glenn Beck than this one fact: he’s Glenn Beck!”

    For his part, on his Fox News TV show earlier, Glenn Beck continued gloating over Van Jones’ resignation under a veiled guise of humility. “I’m not the one to congratulate,” he said. “I didn’t bring down Van Jones. You didn’t bring down Van Jones. Van Jones brought down Van Jones.”

    He breezed through a litany of Jones’ alleged sins and played video clips in which Jones talked about “white polluters” intentionally poisoning minority neighborhoods, called Republicans “assholes,” and said it was time for African-Americans other than Obama to get “a little bit uppity.”

    He made clear that while Jones has resigned from the administration, his obsession won’t end. “It’s not about Van Jones, it’s about the president…Does the president believe in communism? Does the president believe in radicalism, in black nationalism?”

    Beck said it would be difficult for Olbermann or any other of his left-wing foes to dig up much new dirt on him. “You want stuff on me, you just read my books,” Beck said, referencing his personal confessions of struggling with alcoholism and mistreating his family and colleagues.

    Original post, 1:47 pm ET:
    Tonight’s cable television forecast for hardcore political mudslinging could be a muckraker’s delight.

    Keith Olbermann, the liberal host of MSNBC’s “Countdown,” promises that starting tonight on his show, he’ll dish all the dirt he and his followers have dug on his conservative nemesis du jour, Fox News talk show host Glenn Beck.

    Olbermann began his political archeology expedition to counter Beck’s breathless all-caps appeal to his many followers on Twitter recently to “FIND EVERYTHING YOU CAN ON CASS SUNSTEIN, MARK LLOYD AND CAROL BROWNER.” (They are, respectively: President Obama’s nominee to be regulatory “czar” at the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs; the Federal Communications Commission’s associate general counsel and chief diversity officer; and Obama’s energy/climate “czar.”)

    Blogging on Daily Kos over the Labor Day weekend, Olbermann wrote, “I don’t know why I’ve got this phrasing in my head, but: Find everything you can about Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Roger Ailes.”

    There’s little secret as to why Olbermann and the lefties have it in for Beck right now. The right-wing radio and TV talk show host claimed his biggest scalp over the weekend, with the resignation of White House “green jobs” adviser Anthony “Van” Jones.

    It was Beck who publicized Jones’ foibles, including his flirtation with the far-out 9/11 conspiracy crowd.

    Beck gloated on his radio show today, a transcript of which was posted on his Web site, that “My phone and my e-mail and Twitter hammered all weekend long, people offering congratulations.”

    On his way out the door, Jones called the attacks “a vicious smear campaign.” Beck countered today: “I play his words on radio and television. How is it smear to quote him in context? You want me to take him out of context?”

    Olbermann is readying for a cage fight tonight. “Tuesday we will expand this to the television audience and have a dedicated email address to accept leads, tips, contacts, on Beck, his radio producer Burguiere, and the chief of his tv enablers, Ailes (even though Ailes’ power was desperately undercut when he failed to pull off his phony ‘truce’ push),” Olbermann wrote on Daily Kos.

    We’ll update you after we see both Beck’s and Olbermann’s shows tonight. Have at it, kids.

    Good morning from the very chilly NE. Found this article about Montana’s fight to claim sovereignty for upholding gun rights for it’s citizens. Very interesting update:

    ATF Tries to Revoke “Montana Made” State Sovereignty Laws
    We all predicted this would happen.

    In a move typical for that fear-mongering organization with an ever-swelling
    acronym, the BATFE recently wrote gun dealers in the states of Montana and
    Tennessee to let them know the BATFE will be disregarding the state sovereignty
    gun laws of each state.

    The “Montana Made” law, just like Tennessee’s Firearms Freedom Act, is very
    simple.

    Much of federal authority to regulate firearm sales and transfers stems from a
    liberal interpretation of every American tyrant’s favorite subterfuge, the
    “interstate commerce” clause. In essence, this is what gives the BATFE its
    nasty teeth.

    With this in mind, Montana correctly understood that any weapon made in Montana
    by Montana residents and sold in Montana to Montana residents is Montana’s
    business and Montana’s business only.

    Montana thus sought to take charge of its firearms industry with the application
    of a simple truism:

    Any gun made in Montana by Montana residents and sold in Montana to Montana
    residents is intrastate commerce, not “interstate commerce,” and thus does not
    full under the purview of the federal government.

    Potentially, the state would be able to say goodbye to NICS checks; Brady
    background checks; NFA taxes, bans and NFA databases — and most importantly,
    federal “assault weapons” bans, which Montana and Tennessee rightly anticipated.

    In effect, the “Montana Made” law would have permitted Montana gun companies to
    manufacture any kind of weapon banned by federal law — including so-called
    “assault weapons” — and sell them to fellow Montana residents.

    Moreover, in this scenario, no one — neither the manufacturer nor the dealer
    nor the buyer — would have to kowtow to the BATFE by paying them a $200 tax and
    surrendering one’s privacy to their notoriously inaccurate and oft-abused
    National Firearms Registry.

    It was a new day for freedom — and other states besides Tennessee were thinking
    of following suit: Alaska, Colorado, Oklahoma and Texas.

    Well, the BATFE — never one to have its power downplayed (or acronym
    belittled)– has written letters to both Montana and Tennessee gun dealers
    letting them know that they proceed at their own risk.

    We can only guess what new horrors those words portend — probably more dead
    housewives and children as disgruntled ATF thugs shoot-to-kill anyone suspected
    of perhaps owning a firearm not properly taxed and regulated by Washington,
    D.C., power brokers.

    What else would be new.

    A few of our members expressed interest in contacting the BATFE to vent some
    righteous anger — the same thing we did when the Department of Defense said
    they were going to ban all once-fired military brass for resale.

    Remember how the DoD reneged on that commitment after just a few days due to the
    widespread backlash from gun owners and law enforcement?

    Well, this is a bit different. Writing the ATF and providing them with your
    information is akin to giving thieves your home address and the hours you won’t
    be home.

    We’re going to take a different, less dangerous approach.
    We’ve been talking to state officials from both Montana and Tennessee today to
    try to figure out the best way we can help these state laws succeed.

    Please stay tuned to updates on this supremely important issue in our next
    email.

    Gregg pushes back as Dems try to delay a vote to raise debt limit

    http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/60621-senate-democrats-plan-to-delay-vote-to-raise-debt-limit

    Senate Democrats are expected to delay a vote to increase the debt limit to $13 trillion, a move designed to avoid having the debate during the healthcare reform battle

    Senate Republicans said the delay will allow Democrats to avoid voting for an increase in the debt cap at the same time they’re pushing a healthcare overhaul, which is expected to cost approximately $900 billion over the next decade.

    *** Though Democrats have said that their healthcare proposals won’t add to the debt, Republicans have argued that the increase in government spending will lead to more red ink. ***

    Senate Republicans plan to press the issue by offering a series of amendments.

    Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.), the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee, said that he has been asked by Senate GOP leaders to propose amendments to the debt-limit increase that would curtail both discretionary and entitlement spending.

    GOP senators believe that the healthcare push and the debt limit vote serve as the perfect occasion to highlight Democratic budgets, which project deficits above $700 billion for the next decade.

    “I have voted for every debt-limit increase because that’s what you have to do,” Gregg said. “But this limit increase comes in an entirely different context. There’s no tomorrow.”

    The Senate could ease passage of the debt-limit increase by attaching it to one of the remaining appropriations bills, which often receive bipartisan support, said Stan Collender, a former Democratic congressional budget aide.

    But Gregg said that Republicans wouldn’t allow it to pass unnoticed.

    “You can’t pass this through the middle of the night,” Gregg said. “I believe it’s time for people to step up and debate this issue [of rising debt]. This is the perfect vehicle [to] do it on.”

    Taxes—the deficit is so large, that all sorts of taxes are coming. FICA tax caps will go, rates will climb on income tax, and still it will not be enough.

    Some sort of sales tax or value added tax, on top of rising state income taxes, is coming—at precisely the time the stimulus waste reminds us that thousands of taxpayers’ first five months of work this year were simply given away or squandered as part of a $2 trillion deficit.

    Many voted for Obama thinking they would either not be taxed but receive more largess, or that they would not be taxed too much; I think both groups will soon discover the truth.

    (So both James Pethokoukis and Victor Davis Hanson see a value-added tax coming – VAT.)

    After Defeat in Senate Finance, What’s Next for Public Option?

    http://blogs.wsj.com/health/2009/09/29/after-defeat-in-senate-finance-whats-next-for-public-option/

    Max Baucus, the committee’s chairman, maintained his opposition to the public option today, arguing that a bill that includes the public option wouldn’t be filibuster-proof.

    Nevertheless, this isn’t the end of the debate over the public option.

    Bills approved earlier this year by three House committees and the Senate HELP committee all include versions of a government-backed insurance plan.

    Given the disparity between the Finance and HELP committee bills, it’s not entirely clear whether the bill that ultimately makes it to the Senate floor will include a public option.

    But the Finance Committee’s bill is expected to carry great weight as Democratic leaders try to bring a bill to the floor.

    If the legislation coming out of the committee doesn’t include a public option, Democratic backers are likely to try to tack one on.

    And if the full Senate passes a bill that doesn’t include a public option, but the full House passes a bill that does include one, the fight could go all the way to the conference committee, in which the House and Senate hash out a final bill to send to the president.

    (After the conference committee concludes its Grand Bargain which I believe will include Snowe’s trigger, then doesn’t it go back to the Senate and House for final passage? And if Reid decides to go down reconciliation road, which I doubt, won’t there be two bills, the reconciliation bill and the “sidecar?”)

    (Honestly, I believe the “deal” has already been struck.)

    ObamaCare: Whither the “Public Option”?

    http://hotair.com/greenroom/archives/2009/09/30/obamacare-whither-the-public-option/

    (Keith) Hennessey may be right that we will have a much better idea of Democratic intent next week.

    But the “public option” is just one of a number of issues vexing the Dems at the moment, along with

    the overall cost,

    subsidies to support forced insurance coverage,

    how much to stick it to the states on Medicaid,

    regional disparities in Medicare reimbursement rates,

    abortion,

    illegal immigrants, and so on.

    The “public option” is an invitation to a filibuster that would require absolute party unity, with no margin for error.

    If the Senate Democrats had absolute unity, one would think it would be far more apparent than it is today.

    The primary argument against dumping the “public option” is the House progressives’ threatened revolt.

    But that same bunch has been telling the Blue Dogs for months that some bill must pass to avert a Democratic apocalypse — an argument that the Senate could throw back in their faces.

    Update (of sorts): Reflecting again on the above, I want to underscore that on Tuesday afternoon, Bowers wrote that it all comes down to Reid, but by Tuesday evening wrote — after talking to a source on the Hill — that it was all up to the White House.

    (Actually, in terms of a public “option” needing 50 or 60 votes, it’s all up to the Senate Parliamentarian.)

    That is another likely indicator of where Reid is.

    As for the White House, the administration has consistently tepid on the “public option” and generally unwilling to dictate terms to either chamber of Congress.

    That all seems like bad news for the “public option” at the moment, though it leaves plenty of room for a government takeover of healthcare through mandates and regulation.

    (I would love to see just one honest Dem stand up and say that we can’t pass a public “option” with less than 60 votes. Baucus came close to admitting that yesterday.)

    Thanks for that translation, Rose! Here’s an excerpt:
    They talk more often with implantation of microchips in the population, and perhaps the process has already begun. Whenever a hidden plan is about to be implemented, there is a period in which hidden information has to come to the surface, in order to support the final assault on the physical reality. This is the process we are witnessing today, with all this explosion of mergers between banking and global business empires and the accelerating speed of the process of centralization of political and economic power in the hands of institutions like the European Union, United Nations Organization World Trade, Multilateral Investment Agreement and other institutions of globalization as well as the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and summits G-7/G-8. Behind this continuous and coordinated process of globalization lies a tribe composed of several families of pure blood, whose line genealogy can be traced to ancient Middle East and Far East. They came from these regions and have become kings, nobility and clergy European nations emerging, expanding and then power around the world, notably through the “Great” British Empire. Using this tool, the tribe was able to extend power…

    Israel rethinks anti-Iran warnings

    http://www.reuters.com/article/latestCrisis/idUSLT558247

    Even hawkish Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman now sounds skittish about his government’s long hinted-at willingness to go to war rather than see an enemy get the means to make a bomb.

    “God forbid — there’s no need to attack anything,” he told Israel’s Channel Two television on Monday.

    While Israeli officials insist that “all” options remain available for tackling their arch-foe, few dispute that Barak

    — the top strategist, alongside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu —

    has taken a new rhetorical tack as major world powers prepare to revive negotiations with Tehran on Thursday.

    Short on the forces necessary to deliver permanent damage to Iranian nuclear sites, the Israelis hope the new talks will work, one official said — or, failing that, eventually trigger U.S.-led military intervention.

    “The last thing we need to do right now is to distract from the diplomacy with the kind of threats that Iran can point to as ‘proof’ that they, not us, are the endangered party,” the Israeli official said.

    Iran denies seeking nuclear weapons.

    U.S. officials are focusing for now on diplomatic efforts, but the White House is considering sanctions targeting Iran’s dependence on gasoline imports and insurance firms that underwrite the trade.

    Obama warned Iran last week to come clean about its nuclear work or face “sanctions that bite.”

    http://blogs.reuters.com/james-pethokoukis/2009/09/30/will-financial-markets-force-a-400-billion-tax-hike-or-a-vat/

    So I am at this CAP (Center for American Progress) thing on the deficit where talk of higher taxes was hot and heavy.

    Both Robert Rubin and Roger Altman both seemed to imply that the financial markets will force action sooner rather than later on the deficit — and that means higher taxes.

    Outside WH adviser and CAP president John Podesta was talking up the VAT over the weekend, and Altman said today that the WH will have to start doing $500 billion to $700 billion a year in annual deficit reduction during this term.

    Maybe $400 billion of that should come through higher taxes such as a national VAT. (value-added tax)

    Definitely the Wall Street guys seemed more worried than the academics like Alan Blinder or Laura Tyson about the near-term importance of deficit reduction.

    *** Blinder, also former Vice Chair of the Fed, says he could envision the dollar crashing because of American fiscal problems. ***

    And Tyson though the balance-sheet recession and expiration of the Bush tax cuts would mean slow growth ahead for the US economy.

    (so don’t let them expire!)

    We continue to believe the Senate does not have 60 votes for a meaningful cap and trade bill and today’s events are largely designed to keep the process moving.

    With healthcare taking up so much of the calendar and financial regulation to follow, cap and trade is now squarely put into the election calendar.

    Should something pass next year, we expect the legislation to a be a stripped down energy bill (as opposed to cap and trade) and that will feature a Renewable Portfolio Standard and possibly easing of approval for transmission lines.

    Rhetoric from lawmakers began to heat up after Obama disclosed on Sept. 25 in a news conference at the G-20 Summit in Pittsburgh that Iran had been hiding a secret nuclear facility.

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Monday the administration should be pushing for regime change.

    “And I don’t mean through military action, [but] by helping, supporting, assisting in a variety of ways, including Internet access and other encouragement of elements within Iran, to overthrow the regime,” McCain said on Fox News.

    If Congress were to pass new sanctions on Iran, it would be Capitol Hill’s first major action taken against the Middle Eastern nation since the Iran-Libya Sanctions Act passed in 1996. That law, which sanctioned foreign investment in Iran’s energy sector, has been renewed twice.

    FBI Director Robert Mueller

    FBI chief sees no imminent threat from Zazi case

    http://www.reuters.com/article/featuredCrisis/idUSN30192232

    Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told senators that U.S. officials had considered raising the national threat level because of the Zazi investigation, but decided against it.

    The current threat level for the country is set at “elevated,” or yellow, while it is considered “high,” or orange, for all domestic and international flights.

    “We thought about it and rejected it because we didn’t have in the Zazi investigation any kind of specific location, time, threat that would, in our view, justify actually raising the color codes,” Napolitano told the committee.

    The highest level in the five-tier system is “severe,” or red, though DHS is considering recommendations to change the system amid some criticism that it is not very effective.

    grammy,
    I sent the CW-Haffey article to several family members in Nashville to see what I can find out. This kind of crap has to have a big light shined on it. I agree with CW…let them know it is not going unnoticed. Somebody needs to be prosecuted and its not Haffey.

  182. Tenacity Says:

    grammy,
    Sarkozy is correct about S/Ob’s ego, but mistaken about his naivete’. The problem is that we have no POTUS. We only have a saboteur illegal alien pretending to be the leader of the free world and our Congress & judiciary are complicit in the fraud. The Haffey situation is a perfect example of the proof as to how deep the Marxist/globalist conspiracy goes.

    Sarkozy likely knows this and is being diplomatic in his criticism.

    Actually, that’s an excellent argument for her travel to Kenya to birth the child, albeit an oblique reason. Obama senior may have been aware of the problem and wanted the child born in Kenya as yet another legacy for him in his home land and among his fellow rabidly paternalistic countrymen.

    Since O’Reilly’s interview with obama, I can no longer stand to listen to his bloviating blowhardedness. I maintain that his ratings would sink to the basement if he didn’t have the prime time slot.

    The addition of Marc Lamont Hill to the FOX News team is a big mistake. I don’t know if he offends you as much as he does me, but I intend to make it known to TPTB at FOX. This article will sicken you.

    [ed. this business about telegraphing plays is nonsense… your plays have to become part of the public record… there’s no way to hide a legal argument from your opponent. this is getting ridiculous now. people watch too many films and think that’s reality. it’s not. lawyers have an ethical responsibility to share the law with the opposing counsel and the court.

    APF is going to regret impersonating the police. I’m sure the Hardin Council is feeling the hemorrhoids now. I agree with everything you said on this, but I don’t know how you can stop them from operating that prison if they have a contract. The only way they get run out of town is if they are allowed to have any authority over the citizenry.
