    More Weird Stuff!

    Dr. Roger Leir has headed two surgical teams that have removed five suspected alien implants in four separate individuals alleged to be abductees. These surgeries have attracted world wide attention. Dr. Roger Leir is a Podiatric Surgeon and has acted as Chief of Podiatry in many Southern California hospitals.

    Speaking of inseparable!

    The orangutan was in a rescue and not doing well. This old hound wandered in absolutely emaciated and the orangutan snapped to like his buddy had arrived. He stayed with the hound night and day until he was well and in the whole scenario, found a reason to live. They are now inseparable.

    Suryia and Roscoe – Best Of Friends

    Where you lead, I will follow…best friends Suryia the orangutan and Roscoe the Blue Tick hound.

    Doggy paddle’s the order of the day here for the couple who live at the Tigers sanctuary in Myrtle Beach , South Carolina .

    Suryia and Roscoe spend hours together every day – they’re particularly keen on swimming.

    The two mates see the funny side of most things.

    There’s always time to chill.

    For once, Roscoe’s letting it all hang out.

    The three-year-old orangutan goes everywhere with Roscoe.

    A dog’s not just a man’s best friend, he’s an orangutan’s too.

    One of the images of the orangutan for some reason reminds me of one of my brother-in-laws, may God rest his soul.

  19. Troy Says:

    One of the images reminded me of a fright when I woke up in the morning from a night of drinking and a one night stand…It was asleep on my arm and I had to chew my own arm off in order to get away without waking it up!!!….LOL 🙂

  20. cynkading Says:

    Hi People,
    I am not sure if anyone remembers me posting a couple of months ago about the census bureau coming to my house wanting to GPS my door and I refused to allow it, well about a couple of weeks later we received a packet with a survey from them asking lots of questions. Such as how many running toilets and many very personal questions that have absolutely nothing to do with how many people live in my house. Well, we threw the first survey packet away and about a month later received a second one. My husband only answered the questions regarding how many reside in our household and wrote that it was none of their business about the other questions. We received a phone call to day from a Mario Lopez wanting to ask my husband questions about the unaswered survey and my husband refused to answer. He stated that according to the Constitution that all they needed to know was how many people reside in our house. Well, I am thinking we will be flagged or some backlash will come from this. Just really do not know. I feel that there are other like minded people who feel the same, who will not allow this invasion in to our privacy. I am needing to vent a little…………..

  21. cynkading Says:

    Any thoughts?

  22. cynkading Says:

    Troy, lol, you are too much 🙂

  23. cynkading Says:

    Btw, for about the last 3 months or so I have had more friggin trouble with my computer, problems with internet, applications hanging up, pop ups that will not stay blocked, dos ( denial of service ?) just crap all of the time.

  24. Troy Says:

    cynkadinkadoo, go ahead and talk to an attorney who is pissed off about this census nonsense and give him/her a heads-up on the situation and tell ’em you may need ’em later on.

  25. cynkading Says:

    Ok did I ruin a moment or scare everyone off?

  26. Troy Says:

    cynka, may I suggest some FREE downloadable cleaner tools for your PC?…Let me know and I will list a few.

  27. cynkading Says:

    I really don’t know one but I guess I will have to get some kind of advice. I have always had sort of a ” tude problem”. I have a little redneck in me.

    My husband had the tv on this morning and I don’t recall which channel it was only that it was not Fox. There was a poll taken as to how many people felt that O was deserving of the NPP. 83% voted no and 17% yes. I was a little surprised. Just a little 🙂

  33. Troy Says:

    Here is another free tool

    http://www.iobit.com/advancedwindowscareper.html

    What spyware/adware cleaner do you use?

    What virus protection do you use?

  34. cynkading Says:

    TYVM Troy! You are a treasure trove of info. and a good friend.

  35. cynkading Says:

    I have used spyware doctor.

  36. Troy Says:

    Thank goodness my arm grew back! 😉

  37. cynkading Says:

    Do you have a preference on cleaners? I would hate for you to be without an arm and down to one leg.

  38. cynkading Says:

    Oh I have a Symantec or Norton. Not all that impressed with it tho.

  39. Troy Says:

    I have used spyware doctor.

    I currently use it…It does a good job and it’s free.

    I use AVG 8.5 virus protection and it also does a good job. = FREE

    You have to use virus AND spyware/adware programs…They’re are programs that do both, but seperate programs dedicated to one or the other seem to work better for me.

  40. Troy Says:

    NORTON!!!…OMG, it’s practically a virus itself….I hate that SOB…Good luck trying to get that animal out of your computer…You will just about need a stick of dynamite to get rid of it. 😦

  41. cynkading Says:

    Thanks for the advice. I will check it out. I am tired tonight. Waiting on 17 yr. old daughter to get home from date with boyfirend. Been out shopping for butane heaters or kerosene heaters. Trying to weigh options. Think if electriticy goes we will need heaters and fire place. Getting ready for the hard times and the cold winter we are expected to get.

  42. Troy Says:

    use both of those cleaners that I directed you to.

  43. Troy Says:

    I use butane here, but it is getting very expensive.

  44. cynkading Says:

    Well do I need to freak about the Norton? I do not want to ever buy another one. I have had nothing but problems with this one for the last year.

  45. cynkading Says:

    I will use both cleaners. But is there a link for the first one you mentioned? You are somewhat more savy than I am about internet addys.

  46. Troy Says:

    Did you know that you can put a roll of toilet paper in a coffee can and fill it with rubbing alcohol and light it…It puts out a very small blue flame…It will keep a room warm all night…It puts out no fumes, soot or odor at all…I always used this for tents while camping out in the cold.

  47. Troy Says:

    Well do I need to freak about the Norton?
    ***********************************
    Personally, I wouldn’t use it…Do what you want.

    Here ya go on the other cleaner.

  48. cynkading Says:

    Troy, on the scanwith.com it shows 3 different ones standard, with toolbar and portable, which one do I need to download?

  49. cynkading Says:

    Thanks again for all of your info. Where are Grammy, Jrinnc, goferit and the rest of the gang? You are down to slim pickings with me 🙂

  50. Troy Says:

    ****************************
    just click on the orange tab that says, “Download”
    That’s the right one.

    Who knows what they plan to do or why. Why have any conversations with them or otherwise offer anything that they can use harass you?

    I do not refuse to answer anything. I would not reply that I refused to answer anything. I fill out the form to the best of my knowledge. Any questions bout what I filled out? Sure, “I have answered the questions to the best of my knowledge”.

    willfully neglects, when requested by the Secretary, or by any

    Secretary or authorized officer, to answer, to the best of his
    knowledge, any of the questions on any schedule submitted to him in
    connection with any census or survey provided for by subchapters I,
    II, IV, and V of chapter 5 of this title, applying to himself or to

    more than $100.

  54. Troy Says:

    Anytime you download a program, pay attention to the instructions…They will ask if you want free “toolbar”….Always uncheck that box and don’t use the free toolbars.

    Thanks for the heads up on the info. So may be I will be fined. I would think that the small people like me would be the least of their worries. I know that I am not the only one out there who feels that all of this wanting to know how many toilets in my house are with running water is just a little too much. We at least pay our taxes so why bother with this line of questioning?

    Unless you are running Vista or Mac this is the best little utility I have found.

  58. sdee Says:

    They idea is to make it worth more than what they get paid for this.

    Make them prove you did not “answer to the best of your knowledge”.

    Do not answer the phone calls. Don’t debate. If you get a letter, reply registered, return receipt. The letter should have one sentence:

    “I have answered the census form to the best of my knowledge”

  59. cynkading Says:

    As I have stated before I am not a racist person nor do I have problems with other ethnicities (sp?), but my first thought when the guy named Mario Lopez identified himself and that he was with the Census bureau, my thoughts were, I wondered if he was an undocumented worker?

    Thanks for the photos, a real kicker, it’s great to see ‘natural’ friends like! Hey, do you know of any freeware virus and ad/spyware for the Mac? Net has been slowing down for me recently. I don’t think it is just my computer though, my kids and wife see theirs going slower also.

    Cynka,

    I’m usually reading at least 2 or 3 times a day here, trying to keep up with all the great info that everyone posts. Doesn’t seem to allow me to add much new! It’s nice to be missed. I’m in the ‘looking for a job’ market right now, so my time to be posting is shorter than I like.

    So much going on recently that I’m just keeping my head above water and trying to stop my head from exploding.

    Thanks Rose and the WHOLE gang for keeping a warm fire burning!

    Even if it’s just toilet paper in a can of rubbing alcohol!

    Thanks Troy, for the TP in a can heater idea. Hadn’t heard of that one.

    We are working on our own heating situation in case we lose our main source. (electricity) Have a small portable pellet burner. Seems to work just fine, and doesn’t use a lot of pellets. We tried it out last winter during a cold snap, and it kept the house warm enough to be comfortable.

    Am busy with the last of my canning, and my husband is off elk hunting this week. Hoping he gets one this year. Will supplement what we have in the freezer.

    “Hillary now says Obama NOT Lolo Soetoro’s stepson” Anybody heard anything about this?

    ***

    Sorry if this is old news and I haven’t read this morning’s posts yet. I don’t know where this info about what Hillary said or didn’t say came from.

    But we’ve all seen the Indonesian public school records. If memory serves, Lolo registered Barack as his stepson and as a Muslim. And I remember something about Barack having to be an Indonesian citizen and that he couldn’t hold dual citizenship in order to register at that school.

    And something else is nagging at me. I know I shouldn’t even “go there” but I recall Korir mentioning something about Michelle saying that just because Lolo adopted Barack, that wouldn’t keep him from the presidency.

    Oh well, everybody thinks me a loon already anyway!

  74. Troy Says:

    He had to be adopted in order to be an Indonesian citizen and attend school.

    Why would he then try to discredit me on a post I left on FR, entitled “Orly is Working for Obama?” His thuggish attempts to use sexism to paint me as ‘unstable’ bear a stark resemblance to the tactics used on the left against Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin.

    (http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/2308045/posts?q=1&;page=51)

    “There was NO PRESS RELEASE. It was a direct statement made to Dan Nagaso of the Honolulu Advertiser.

    An “electronic press release? You mean, like an email that nobosy else has seen except you?

    51 posted on Tue Aug 4 14:38:36 2009 by Polarik (Obama: When destroying America is not enough.)”

    **It should be noted that when ‘Polarik’ confirmed he got the Press Release pdf sent to me from Okubo on the night of 7/27/09, which I uploaded for him especially on August 3, he then directed me to a story about Orly and the ‘Kenyan Birth Certificate’ that was dropped on us all in early August. As it turns out, he directed me to a distraction. We all remember the ‘crumpled ball’ photos saying we got punked? Eh?

    I have my own understanding of what happened with ‘Polarik’ on August 4 and, therefore, that led me to question the person that gave ‘Polarik’ her claimed Hawaii COLB. This person approached me and in talking to her, she claimed to have a ‘Filed by Registrar’ COLB from Hawaii herself. It’s available online, often in conjunction with ‘Polarik’s’ stuff. This person also claimed that there was nothing unusual about the birth information contained within her alleged COLB–no amendments pending or otherwise, she told me, just a regular birth certificate. So I guess that blows that theory, huh?

    Not so fast, I say. This COLB came out shortly after Obama released his COLB online, as I recall. It was used to get people focused on a possible forgery. Ha! It successfully distracted people from questioning too closely the words” ‘Filed by Registrar’ found on both COLBs. From the beginning. Imagine that?

    I don’t know about you guys, but I have reason to suspect now that this person was mistaken, joshing with us, or received a COLB issued in error IF her story behind it is true and correct. Furthermore, a quick Google of her name indicated she was in Colorado–not Hawaii.

    I can’t say for certain, but it appears that people are having fun at our expense. And these people link with other people we are trusting to help with this issue. The time to STOP relying on others is NOW. Seems no one is above suspicion these days. Be wary. Get answers from Hawaii or credible sources as I have. Do it yourselves.

    Obama dithers toward an Afghan defeat

    A half-measure plan won’t do the job

    http://post-gazette.com/pg/09284/1004344-373.stm

    “This is typical Obama pabulum,” said Jennifer Rubin of Commentary magazine. “Both sides are extreme and he, the voice of moderation, will step in to split the difference. But this doesn’t work in a war when the middle ground, as we learned in both Afghanistan and Iraq, is not a viable option.”

    “This sort of willful obtuseness is deeply troubling because there simply isn’t any viable military/strategic rationale for what the president is straining to do,” Ms. Rubin said. “It’s a political approach plain and simple. He wants money for health care, and he doesn’t want a revolt on the left.”

    If President Obama opts for a strategy Gen. McChrystal thinks will lead to defeat, he has a difficult decision to make. As a serving officer, he must obey any lawful orders the president issues, even if they are stupid and dangerous. And as a serving officer, he shouldn’t publicly criticize decisions the commander in chief makes.

    But, as The Wall Street Journal said in an editorial, “no commander in uniform should ask his soldiers to die for a strategy he doesn’t think is winnable — or for a president who lets his advisers and party blame a general for their own lack of political nerve.”

    (Why should we be asking our fighting men and women to risk their lives if it’s NOT going to make a difference in the everyday lives of the Afghani people, especially the women and girls? Our military knows there are some things worth fighting for. And they’re willing to sacrifice IF that sacrifice will ultimately set people free. It must be a noble fight with noble aspirations or we should just come home.)

    More background information on Behnood Shojaei

    http://www.uruknet.info/index.php?p=m58799&hd=&size=1&l=e

    17-year-old Behnood Shojaee was convicted of killing a 19 year old boy named Omid during a street fight involving over a dozen boys.

    Shojaee says that he tried to stop the fight and used a chard of glass from a broken soda bottle in self defence. He said he hit an attacker once only with the piece of glass. Shojaee’s lawyer Mohammad Mostafaei argues that the coroner found several wounds by various objects making it unable to assess who was responsible for the fatal blow causing death.

    At first the family of the victim wanted over 2 million dollars US in “blood money” compensation. After months of negotiation, and his execution being postponed three times, the “diyeh” was reduced to approximately $625,000 USD.

    Shojaee who grew up with his grandparents since the death of his mother at age 10 from diabetes and a father living with depression from his tragic loss, he could not afford the required “diyeh”.

    McCain warns against ‘historic’ error in Afghanistan

    http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/10/11/mccain.afghanistan/

    Sen. John McCain said any added military deployment in Afghanistan smaller than the 40,000 troops reportedly requested by the top U.S. commander there “would be an error of historic proportions.”

    Asked whether he thought the war in Afghanistan could be won with fewer troops than Gen. Stanley McChrystal has reportedly requested, McCain said, “I do not.”

    The Arizona Republican, who was defeated by President Obama in the 2008 presidential election, spoke in a wide-ranging interview that aired Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

    “I think the great danger now is a half-measure, sort of a — you know, try to please all ends of the political spectrum,” McCain told CNN chief national correspondent John King. “And, again, I have great sympathy for the president, making the toughest decisions that presidents have to make, but I think he needs to use deliberate speed.”

    Disregarding requirements that have been “laid out and agreed to” by Central Command head Gen. David Petraeus and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Michael Mullen “would be an error of historic proportions,” McCain said when asked whether 10,000 or 20,000 additional troops in Afghanistan would suffice.

    “I will add, as a fifth circumstance in the situation of the House of Representatives,
    restraining them from oppressive measures, that they can make no law
    which will not have its full operation on themselves and their friends,
    as well as on the great mass of the society

    If this spirit shall ever be so far debased as to tolerate a law
    not obligatory on the legislature, as well as on the people,
    the people will be prepared to tolerate any thing but liberty.”

    Public Plan – Or Something Like It – Still On The Table In Health Reform Debate

    http://www.kaiserhealthnews.org/Daily-Reports/2009/October/11/public-option-health.aspx

    Politico: “Groping for a way out of a political bind, Democrats are defining down what constitutes a government-run insurance plan — and by extension, what it takes to declare victory.

    At this point, Senate Democrats are signaling they could get behind just about anything they could plausibly call the public option — from a ‘trigger’ that could kick in a public insurance plan later, to Delaware Sen. Tom Carper’s proposal to give states an option to create a government program.

    Liberals who’ve long distrusted private insurers and dreamed of a nationwide, government-run insurance plan see it as a cave-in.

    Senate leaders see something different — a path to 60 votes for the first time all year.”

    “‘It’s a tried-and-true legislative strategy for getting everyone to ‘yes,’ ‘ said a Democratic strategist familiar with congressional leadership strategy.

    ‘Narrow your differences by broadening the definition of what constitutes success.”

    (Budoff Brown, 10/11).

    The Los Angeles Times had a Q & A about the week ahead, which included the following:

    “What is the ‘opt-out’ public option being discussed as a possible compromise?

    A proposal championed by Sens. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Thomas R. Carper (D-Del.) would allow states to decide whether they want to include a government-run insurance plan on a state insurance exchange.

    The idea is an attempt to attract liberal supporters who believe a so-called public option must be part of a final bill and moderates who don’t want to force the option on states.

    The provision is not currently part of the Finance bill, but could be added by Reid or through an amendment on the Senate floor” (Geiger, 10/11).

    (Carper’s compromise included an opt-in for states, not an opt-out. Schumer’s pushing an opt-out for obvious reasons. Snowe’s trigger is looking better all the time. I hope the “Gang of Eight” moderate Democrats stick to their guns and oppose this push from the left to squeak in this opt-out proposal.)

  112. rosettasister Says:

    http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/62587-prospects-for-healthcare-co-ops-are-dimming

    The aide said that most Democratic lawmakers would vote for a public option with a trigger before embracing co-ops.

    Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) supports the trigger plan, which would set up a government insurance program only if private insurance companies failed to meet certain standards.

    Watch Out For This!

    The newest proposal to gain momentum would create a national government health insurance plan and give individual states the option of not participating.

    It’s a variation of a compromise floated by Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.) and remains in its preliminary stages.

    The proposal could be significant if it gains backing from centrist Democrats such as Carper because leading liberals appear willing to accept it.

    “At first blush, that sounds good,” New York Times columnist Paul Krugman wrote on his blog.

    “It’s true that the states most likely to opt out will probably be small states that really need the competition.

    But many states, with probably a majority of the population, would opt in.

    And if the public option works well, there will soon be pressure on politicians in the others to do the same.”

    (I hope Repubs are awake to this. Honestly, they’re beginning to sound like broken records. They should be sounding the alarm on this pushing the public-option in through the back door with this opt-in or opt-out. If they don’t get behind Snowe’s trigger and soon, we could end up with something far, far worse.)

  113. rosettasister Says:

    Schumer is a sneaky bastard! Watch out!

    There were already several compromise ideas on the table, such as consumer-owned co-ops, voluntary state-level public plans and state plans that would kick in if insurance companies didn’t meet certain conditions.

    But Carper and Schumer came up with a creative new approach with potentially broader appeal: A federal public plan that states could decline to offer if they so chose or, in a reverse permutation, that they could join if they so chose.

    http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2009/10/schumer-opt-out-public-option-gaining-steam.php

    Some variation of this could resolve one of the stickiest issues in the reform process.

    People who aren’t paid to pay close attention to Capitol Hill aren’t going to notice this little stroke of (possibly transformative) legislative prowess. Bad behavior, partisan conflict, slow progress and massive complexity (the kind that leads to fear of change) are far more visible.

    Add to that a dark pall over everything Washington-related these days because the economy is so bad.

    1) Even a 0.10 percent tax would double the cost of US stock trading where the average commission cost is just under a dime. Welcome back to the pre-Internet early 1990s.

    2) It would reduce market volumes and make the equity market less attractive. Kind of dumb thing to do in a time of constrained credit markets where it is tough to raise money.

    3) That supposed $100 billion-$150 billion in revenue wouldn’t appear out of thin air. It would come from investment firms who would pass along costs to customers.

    4) It would drive trading activity to less costly trading centers, such as the Toronto Stock Exchange (at least if we are talking about the US). Goodbye US jobs.

    The news will be coming on at 12 so I will listen to see what this is about. She did say they were only burning Bibles that were not the King James Version. But I am shocked they are burning books by Graham. She said they were also burning books by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins.

    http://www.boston.com/news/world/asia/articles/2009/10/11/husband_and_wife_take_stage_in_debate_on_afghanistan/

    Writing for Foreign Policy magazine late last month about

    the small group of outside experts advising McChrystal, including the Kagans,

    Stephen M. Walt, a professor of international relations at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, said they seem intent on avoiding “the real question that President Obama (and the nation) faces:

    should the United States increase its presence in the hopes of reversing the situation, or should it cut its losses and get out?’’

    The pair declined to be interviewed for this story, but in an e-mail, Frederick Kagan, who is a resident scholar at the conservative American Enterprise Institute in Washington, defended their approach.

    “We do not pursue any ideology when it comes to the military assessments and recommendations we provide,’’ he said.

    “We make our best efforts to evaluate America’s interests objectively, to understand enemy forces, friendly forces, and third parties, and to identify the courses of action we think are best to pursue our country’s interests.’’

    The couple, who fiercely guard their personal privacy, first teamed up as undergraduates at Yale in the early 1990s, according to Frederick’s father, Donald Kagan, a Yale historian and well-known neoconservative.

    Republicans argued that Obama would be making a major mistake if he doesn’t quickly answer McChrystal’s call for more troops.

    Sen. John McCain, the top Republican on the Armed Services Committee, said it would be “an error of historic proportions’ if Obama decides against a significantly larger U.S. presence.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Afghan national police are “getting slaughtered’ and thousands more forces are needed to bring security and stability to the country.

    Senators Schumer (NY) and Carper (DE) have proposed a state-by-state opt-out option that has serious potential for reviving the public plan option.

    The Huffington Post reports:

    “In private, aides on Capitol Hill say that the opt-out option remains one of several proposals being debating (sic) as a compromise to a straightforward national public plan.

    But, they add, it is quickly winning plaudits within the caucus.

    A senior aide said that Schumer was taking the lead on negotiating the compromise approach — along with Carper….”

    Senator Tom Carper’s original compromise proposal had been an “opt-in” option for states, but the suggestion of reversing the option by progressives in the Senate seems to be gathering momentum.

    “Credit is everything. Without credit expansion there’s no recovery because there’s no pick-up in overall demand. But credit growth is going backwards. The banks have tightened lending standards and the pool of credit-worthy applicants has vanished. Bank lending is off 14 per cent since October 2008. Private credit is presently decreasing at a 10.5 per cent annual rate. The situation is getting worse, not better.”

    Individual states deciding to opt-in sounds reasonable, but they need to give Snowe’s trigger a chance, i.e., they need to give private insurers a chance.

    Dems have the votes and Reid knows he has to present a final Senate bill that can get 60 votes.

    October 12, 2009 at 2:05 pm

    First off, the “dossier” from Susan Daniels says that the preponderance of dates associated with the magic Social Security number in question say August 4, 1961 (which is coincidentally the date of birth of Barack Obama). A few of the references have the month and day switched. So the person Orly is sending out her scavenger hunters to find, born in 1890, does not exist. And why does Orly need volunteers to send in FOIA requests? Why do they need to be sent by multiple people? This is harassment, pure and simple.

    Now if one indeed searches the Social Security Death Index for Barack H Obama or Barack Obama, there are no records found — so no one named Barack Obama and is now dead ever had a Social Security number. I know the Social Security Number Orly has in mind due to her sloppy privacy procedures, and it’s not in the death index either. So throw that theory out the window.

    SSN’s consist of an an area number (3 digits) a group number (2 digits) and a serial number (4 digits). The area number tells you WHERE the SSN was issued, and in the case of the magic SSN, it was indeed Connecticut. (See http://cpsr.org/issues/privacy/SSNStructure/ for information on SSN structure).

    It’s funny that Orly in her court document attempted to mark out the LAST FOUR digits of the alleged SSN while other commentators mark out the FIRST FIVE digits. So all you have to do is consult two sources and get the whole thing.

    United We Fall
    by Frank Chodorov

    The following article is from the May 1950 issue of analysis, vol. VI, no. 7, and was reprinted on LewRockwell.com

    http://www.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2009/10/11/united-we-fall/

    “In short, a states’ rights movement should take the form of the secession from Washington, not from the Union, and nullification of the directives issuing from bureaucracies. It would be revolutionary in character but legal in form, because the autonomy of the state governments is inherent in the Constitution. Besides, there is no way for the federal government to indict the state governments, and revolution is always legal when it is successful.”

    Here is video of Bill Bennett splendidly bringing things into focus by slamming the Obama Administration for elevating the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” at a time when “8-10 American” soldiers are dying each day and Gen. McChrystal is waiting on an answer as to whether he will get the reinforcements he needs to win. In fact, Bennett said that if he were a general in Iraq or Afghanistan and heard that the debate in Washington was over “Don’t ask, Don’t tell” instead of the critical issues of life and death, he would consider “resigning” his commission.

    The rest of the panel was clearly taken aback by Bennett and tried to recuperate after he leveled them with this common sense blast.

    This puts us in this position where you say, “On the one hand, what we’re about to do on adopting health care reform will reduce the cost of health insurance from what it would otherwise be,” and on the other hand you say, “Well incidentally, we’re gonna raise your taxes or cut your Medicare to the tune of $900 billion or $1 trillion.”

    Gruber is, undoubtedly, pro-reform.

    He’s advised the Senate Finance Committee and served as one of the architects of the Massachusetts plan.

    But he’s also one of the most-respected health economists in the country.

    Gruber runs the numbers for an average family, a 25-year-old and a 60-year-old, looking at different income levels for each, and paying close attention to the role subsidies will play.

    In each case, he finds the people likely to save money under the Senate Finance Committee’s plan.

    His analysis is based on Congressional Budget Office data.

    Is his analysis correct and the insurance industry’s analysis wrong? Hard to say.

    Neither group has their model out in the open, and neither group is taking a comprehensive look at the bill’s many parts (in particular, the money-saving delivery-system reforms are totally excluded).

    Gruber’s numbers are free from any glaring deficiencies.

    Plaintiff in Kerchner v Obama: Courts must hear eligibility arguments – cites Marshall opinion that to refuse is treason
    by Robert Unruh

    A plaintiff in one of the cases challenging Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president says federal courts must hear the challenges, because to do otherwise would be treason.

    The claim comes from Charles F. Kerchner Jr., a lead plaintiff in the Kerchner vs. Obama & Congress lawsuit handled by attorney Mario Apuzzo.

    Apuzzo filed suit in January on behalf of Kerchner, Lowell T. Patterson, Darrell James Lenormand and Donald H. Nelson Jr. Named as defendants are Barack Hussein Obama II, the U.S., Congress, the Senate, House of Representatives and former Vice President Dick Cheney along with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

    The case focuses on the alleged failure of Congress to follow the Constitution. That document, the lawsuit states, “provides that Congress must fully qualify the candidate ‘elected’ by the Electoral College Electors.”

    The Constitution provides, the lawsuit says, “If the president-elect shall have failed to qualify, then the vice president elect shall act as president until a president shall have qualified.”

    “There existed significant public doubt and grievances from plaintiffs and other concerned Americans regarding Obama’s eligibility to be president and defendants had the sworn duty to protect and preserve the Constitution and specifically under the 20th Amendment, Section 3, a Constitutional obligation to confirm whether Obama, once the electors elected him, was qualified,” the case explained.

    “Congress is the elected representative of the American people and the people speak and act through them,” the lawsuit said.

    The defendants “violated” the 20th Amendment by failing to assure that Obama meets the eligibility requirements, the lawsuit said.

    Now on the attorney’s blog, Kerchner has written, “The federal courts and judges are committing treason to the Constitution by not taking jurisdiction and getting to the merits in the various cases before them regarding the Article II eligibility clause question for Obama.”

    He said his basis for such a statement is the opinion of U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Marshall, who wrote in an 1821 case, Cohens vs. Virginia:

    “It is most true that this court will not take jurisdiction if it should not: but it is equally true, that it must take jurisdiction if it should. The judiciary cannot, as the legislature may, avoid a measure because it approaches the confines of the constitution. We cannot pass it by because it is doubtful. With whatever doubts, with whatever difficulties, a case may be attended, we must decide it, if it be brought before us. We have no more right to decline the exercise of jurisdiction which is given, than to usurp that which is not given. The one or the other would be treason to the constitution. Questions may occur which we would gladly avoid; but we cannot avoid them. All we can do is, to exercise our best judgment, and conscientiously to perform our duty. In doing this, on the present occasion, we find this tribunal invested with appellate jurisdiction in all cases arising under the constitution and laws of the United States. We find no exception to this grant, and we cannot insert one.”

    Effects on Health Expenses | 10:51 a.m. Under questioning from Senator Jeff Bingaman, Democrat of New Mexico,

    The experts find conflicting effects, with some expenditures going up and some going down.

    “We have simply not done the analysis to net those out,” Mr. Elmendorf says.

    (And the committee is voting today WITHOUT the analysis!)

    Scoring the Bill | 11:02 a.m. Senator Jon Kyl, Republican of Arizona, says some technical aspects of the bill have been changed by the staff that the committee has not voted on.

    *** He says the estimated cost of the bill was incorrect, because it was not indexed for inflation. ***

    Mr. Baucus tries to straighten the matter out with Mr. Elmendorf.

    Indexing Debate | 11:06 a.m. Mr. Baucus concludes that changes made by staff were essentially clarifications done in good faith.

    But Senator Kyl is insistent.

    *** He says the language of the mark does not include indexing and indexing will have profound implications on various aspects of the bill, such as the fines that people will have to pay if they don’t have insurance. ***

    Partly to blame, the study said, are two amendments that Sen. Charles Schumer added to the legislation — one exempting 2 million people from being required to buy health insurance, and another that weakened and phased in penalties for those who do have to buy it.

    Among the reasons for this startling finding, the study cites “weak individual coverage requirement” and “allowing more individuals to ‘opt out’ of coverage” — the Schumer amendments adopted by the committee on Oct. 1.

    The study caught many by surprise. The White House acted with dismay and anger, AARP dismissed the study as “worthless” and the spokesman for the Democratic majority on the Senate Finance Committee called it a “hatchet job.”

    So far, Schumer has held fire, making no comments and issuing no statements.

    (“allowing more individuals to ‘opt out’ of coverage” – this is not the same as Schumer’s state opt-out)

    (BTW every time you hear a pundit on the right say we’re spending all this money and still leaving 25 million uninsured, that is rather disingenuous. Because I’m pretty sure that number includes illegals. Both Dems and Repubs say illegals won’t receive subsidies. I don’t like it when either side misleads us.)

    That Insurance Report | 11:26 a.m. The White House blog issues another critique of the report by AHIP, putting up a set of points to dispute the insurance industry’s contentions as this debate continues in Congress.

    http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/Word-from-the-White-House-AHIP-Report-on-Senate-Finance-Committee-Bill/

    Earlier, The Times’ Robert Pear wrote about the report, which contends that congressional health care legislation would drive up premiums, not lower costs.

  207. rosettasister Says:

    Ensign Blasts Taxes in Bill | 11:31 a.m. Senator John Ensign, Republican of Nevada, says most people under this bill would be losers. The Republicans are all trying to undermine the idea that people who are happy with their insurance will be able to keep it and are sending warning signals to seniors. As Mr. Ensign put it: “This bill cuts Medicare by $449 billion for seniors to pay for a new entitlement program even though Medicare will go bankrupt” in a decade.

    Mr. Ensign adds: “There are seven brand new taxes in this bill. This is just the beginning. before the final bill is completed, You can be sure that more taxes will be added. He then mentioned those on small businesses and a new windfall profits tax on insurance companies that he contended would end up raising premiums.

    Mr. Ensign says he is afraid there will be more “unpleasant surprises” revealed later in this bill.

    No New Choices? | 11:40 a.m. Senator Ron Wyden, Democrat of Oregon, who has been agitating to give consumers more choices, asks Mr. Elmendorf if he is correct in deducing that more than 90 percent of people still would not have new choices in the health exchanges.

    Yes, Mr. Elmendorf says.

    Uninsured Numbers | 11:43 a.m. Mr. Wyden continues, asking about affordability. “It looks like a lot of middle class families will seek an exemption on those costs and be uninsured,” Mr. Wyden says.

    “How many families will seek an exemption and be uninsured because they can’t afford the coverage?

    Mr. Elmendorf said “a significant number of people” would be uninsured.

    Transparency | 12:04 p.m. Where’s the most up-to-date language for the bill? Senator Cornyn pushes for it to be made public; Senator Baucus acknowledges that when the panel votes today on the bill, it will be voting on the “conceptual” language.

    The latest version, which still isn’t altogether in legislative form.

    Her central questions will be whether the bills increase the deficit, promote choice and competition and protect senior citizens.

    She said that seniors are “alarmed about big bills that are difficult for them to understand.”

    Too Little Time | 12:42 p.m. Senator Hatch refers to the controversial report paid for by the insurance industry, saying that no one wants health insurance premiums to rise dramatically.

    Questioning Mr. Elmendorf, he establishes — again — that the budget office has not done a premium-impact analysis on this bill and that if the budget office had more time, it could do one.

    “One of the gripes we have on this side is that we’ve just been ramming this through,” says Mr. Hatch, the Republican from Utah.

    (“the budget office has not done a premium-impact analysis on this bill” – are you f*cking kidding me?!)

    Snowe Returns | 12:51 p.m. Senator Snowe is up. The committee has gone further than ever before, she says, in trying to transform the health care system, and she has kind words for the panel. One in four Americans are uninsured or underinsured, she says, and the status quo approach means “we have a problem that is growing worse, not better.” Which way is she heading?

  218. rosettasister Says:

    Snowe Returns

    But now she raises some concerns. People are afraid of what reform will mean, she says, and whether this is the right time to undertake such a big overhaul, given the bad economy.

    She says this bill needs more time. (Amen!)

    The best way to allay people’s concerns is to systematically review them, she says.

  219. rosettasister Says:

    Snowe Will Vote Yes | 12:56 p.m. Senator Snowe has just indicated that she will support the Finance Committee bill, although she withholds support for future itirerations of the legislation.

    She cited the positives, mentioning insurance exchanges, and the negatives, like affordability. We need to absolutely ensure that all Americans have access to plans that are absolutely affordable. She’s concerned about Medicare expansion.

    Here is her conclusion: “Is this bill all that I would want? Far from it. But when history calls, history calls and I happen to think that the consequences of inaction dictate the urgency of Congress to demonstrate its capacity to solve the monumental issues of our time.”

  220. rosettasister Says:

    So the final vote out of committe will probably be 14 – 9?

    How’s that trigger looking now?

  221. rosettasister Says:

    So Senator Snowe takes the leap, becoming almost certainly the only Republican, at least on this committee, to support the Democratic bill.

    But she cautions:

    “My vote today is my vote today, it doesn’t forecast what my vote would be tomorrow.”

    She quoted Longfellow, a fellow Mainer, saying that great is the art of the beginning, but greater is the art of the ending.

    (And “the ending” needs 60 votes in the Senate.)

    Nelson and Bayh support state opt-out or opt-in?

    http://voices.washingtonpost.com/ezra-klein/2009/10/evan_bayh_and_bill_nelson_open.html

    Sen. Ben Nelson and Evan Bayh are beginning to talk about compromises on the public option.

    One proposal attracting considerable attention originated with Sen. Thomas R. Carper (D-Del.) and would allow states to decide whether to create their own insurance plans or join forces to provide coverage in collaboration with neighboring states. Other Democrats want to take the state-based approach a step further, creating a national public plan that states could join. Carper, a moderate, said he is not sure he is prepared to go that far. “I’m just chewing on that one,” he said.

    Sen. Evan Bayh (Ind.), a moderate Democrat, was bullish on Carper’s approach.

    “I think something like that is likely, and would probably pass muster with moderates,” he said.

    Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.), who opposes a public option, said he likes Carper’s idea.

    “I think the states, as laboratories of democracy, probably can find ways to deal with this, and if they do make a mistake it’s a smaller mistake to correct than at the federal level,” Nelson said.

    This suggests two things, both of them cheering:

    The most conservative of the Democratic centrists are not going to draw a hard line against the public option, and they’re actually negotiating toward support for the bill.

    There’s going to be a lot of Senate pressure for a full public option, and a lot of House pressure for a full public option, and

    *** the moderates aren’t planted so far to the other side of the issue that a compromise is inconceivable. ***

    (Even with Nelson and Bayh, that still doesn’t get you to 60.)

    (BTW, notice both of these senators are talking about Carper’s opt-in and NOT Schumer’s opt-out. And I think Carper’s compromise has a trigger. Not sure.)

    no govt funding for abortion
    health insurance rules and regs that include EVERYBODY aka Congress and Federal workers and Unions

    This has all been proposed and mostly favored by we the people and discussed at town halls and tea parties.

    CAN YOU HEAR US AT ALL?????????

  226. rosettasister Says:

    So what is Tom Carper’s position on Public Option Health Care?

    A friend of mine just called up Senator Carper’s office, and inquired whether Carper (who claims that he “doesn’t oppose” the public option) would support a public option plan that was “available on day one”.

    Surprisingly, he got an actual answer: No.

    According to Carper’s office, our senator views a potential public option plan as a “fall back” plan if a Senate (presumably “bipartisan”) bill fails to reduce health insurance costs via other means.

    So no, no public option on day one.

    (Sounds like a state opt-in with a Snowe-like trigger. That would be my best guess right now.)

  227. rosettasister Says:

    There’s plenty to criticize on both sides of this debate. But my criticism of Repubs and talking heads on the right goes something like this.

    Except for Olympia Snowe, I don’t see any other Repub bringing anything to the table.

    Lord knows there’s plenty in BaucusCare to criticize, evidenced again today.

    But the Dems don’t need any Repub votes, except symbolically.

    Senator Bayh says he would support tort reform.

    So why isn’t it in the bill?

    Because Repubs say they would still vote NO.

    That is the problem in a nutshell.

    Besides Snowe, are there any other moderate Repubs who are willing to swap tort reform for a state opt-in with a trigger?

    I doubt it.

    And because of this, we might end up with a Schumer opt-out instead.

    Does this seem smart to you?

    Due process demands that Judge Land remains unbiased. Anyone reading any of the judge’s order can clearly see he’s anything but biased and on an agenda. He’s also trying to affect the case in front of Judge Carter (which may be an additional reason Judge Carter will not grant Gary Kreep severance).

    Yeah, but that document only counts as proof of adoption, not proof of birthplace.

    However when the school registration form is coupled with Obama’s Hawaii Certificate of Live Birth and the statement verifying it issued by the Director of the Hawaii Department of Health, it is corroboration along with two birth announcements for Barack Hussein Obama which appeared in the Sunday, August 13, 1961 editions of the Honolulu Advertiser and the Honolulu Star-Bulliten newspapers. Both of those papers have confirmed that they have always gotten their birth announcements directly from the Bureau of Vital Records and not from parents or relatives.

    “I, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, Director of the Hawaii State Department of Health, have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawaii State Department of Health verifying Barrack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen.
    I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement issued in October 2008 over eight months ago…”

    All, bottom line for me on the health care, and I will preface this by saying since my divorce 3 years ago, in which I was a stay-at-home mom for 20 years (4 kids), I have NOT HAD INSURANCE. The few visits I have been forced to go to the Dr. and a Surgeon, I had to come up with the cash. I have a couple college degrees but since I stayed at home, the education earned a long time ago, are not helpful.

    In my opinion, the economy is much, much sicker (I have been laid off for over a year in a high unemployment state and no luck with a job, and my time at home and volunteering doesn’t count for squat with employers) sorry, I digress, but the economy IMHO is much more important now than healthcare, and they have screwed with the economy, not using sound economic principles. so here is my question:

    The million dollar question. What the heck is their hurry? Why now? Why so fast with the healthcare? The only thing I can think of is that they just want to ram as much “CHANGE (SOCIALIST) as they can down our throats before the masses rise up in such a roar that they are finished, and hopefully (for them) the country is tilting so far left it’s sinking under the weight.

    I believe that Repubs, Dems, Socialists and Communists alike, that are pushing this crap, already have “theirs” (power and money) and to hell with the rest of us. After being literally financially destroyed by my ex-husband, I am at my age, trying to pull myself up and I am competing with people half my age for jobs. I’ve decided to stop placing the year I graduated from college on my apps. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that I didn’t graduate college at age 10.

    Why so fast and now, while the economy is a mess? It doesn’t make any economic sense to mess with healthcare until the economy can handle it and people are working.

    by DefendUSx October 13, 2009 12:30

    Dear Concerned American,

    The great pay-back has begun, and it’s going to be ugly.

    The gun grabbers in Congress are paying back the anti-gun extremists who put them and Barack Obama in office.

    Hi, this is Congressman Paul Broun from Georgia. I wish I had better news, but you and I are facing an assault on our gun rights like we’ve never seen before.

    You see, H.R. 45 is Barack Obama’s gun control package, and it includes the most vile anti-gun measures he’s supported over the years.

    It’s only the first step…

    Palestinians: Hopes in Obama ‘Evaporated’

    JERUSALEM — The Palestinian president’s political party says all hopes in the Obama administration have “evaporated,” accusing the White House of caving in to pressure from the pro-Israel lobby and backing off a demand to freeze Jewish settlement.

    SANCTION RULING WILL MAKE ORLY ONLY THE MORE DETERMINED !
    by John Charlton

    (Oct. 13, 2009) — The Post & Email has just received this personal reaction, to Land’s Sanction Order, from Mr. Charles E. Lincoln III, Dr. Taitz’s assistant:

    I would point out that in Cohens v. Virginia, decided by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1821, Chief Justice Marshall wrote that for a court to refuse to exercise its jurisdiction was “treason” to the constitution.

    Judge Land has built his entire assault against Orly’s integrity based on the doctrine of abstention—that he has jurisdiction which he should ignore. The 11th Circuit Mindes case from 1971 specifically found constitutional questions regarding the military and the application of its rules were subject to Judicial challenge, yet Judge Land ignores the substance of the very precedent he cites.

    Judge Land issued a 43 page order condemning Orly, for among other things, utilizing the Courts for political purposes, and yet he proposes to use the $20,000.00 he expects to obtain from Orly for what can only be called a political contribution to advance certain political positions and philosophical assertions within the army.

    Judge Land is clearly utilizing his power under Rule 11 to attempt to sanction Orly for legitimate exercise of her First Amendment Right to Petition, and that of her clients. Post-judgment motions and an appeal will be filed—your readers can rest assured of that. Orly is exploring the possibility of a direct appeal or request for stay of judgment to the U.S. Supreme Court. Needless to say, Judge Land’s abuse of his position just makes Orly more determined, angrier than ever.

    Orly does feel that this is further evidence that the U.S. Judiciary is subject to political pressures analogous to her “memories of life in the former Soviet Union”, and those are her words because I have no such memories.

    Now…regarding global warming and Katies frozen derriere…I’m not touching either one of those in the same sentence. Besides, Katie’s stud would heat things up in a hurry.

    jr, Kevin Tebedo is a good friend, as is Gary Coats. Both of these guys have been in the liberty battle for many years. They have strong family heritage in the state of Colorado. Both are knowledgeable, articulate and clearly understand what is at risk. It would be a great privilege to stand with these 2 great patriots in this battle. I will also add that Dr. Eugene Schroder is a phenominal patriot as well. If I were to get bumped with the mail-in votes, Schroder is a legend. His nomination came in late making him a write-in candidate. He is one old soldier in this war. He has been a real political force in Colorado during the ’90s. He is scheduled to be one of our guests Thursday night on Let’s Talk Liberty. There is a lot to be learned from Schroder. If Schroder had been on the ballot, he would have for sure been more competitive. I am fortunate to have some margin on him at the moment. If by chance I get bumped, I would pray that Schroder get the nod. Check this out: http://52.thelastoutpost.com/video-5/war-powers/dr-gene-schroeder-war-powers-act.html

    Troy and Rose,

    I know you’re right. It’s all distraction. When I was married and I had some money. We had money for the necessities, but did make a sacrifice financially so our kids had a parent at home, I used to have a couple months stash of canned and dried staples: tuna, canned veggies, beans, rice, powdered milk, bottled water, etc.

    I just wish I could do it now. I only have enough for my kids for a couple weeks, that’s it. Can’t pay for any more and not one extra penny for a “rainy day”.

    I love my country. I wonder why many of the dumba$$es in Congress, the Agitator-in-Chief and so many Americans don’t and want to destroy her.

    Urgent lawsuit filed against FDA to halt swine flu vaccines; claims FDA violated federal law

    Health freedom attorney Jim Turner is filing a lawsuit in Washington D.C. mid-day Friday in an urgent effort to halt the distribution of the swine flu vaccine in America. On behalf of plaintiffs Dr. Gary Null and other licensed health care workers of New York State, the lawsuit charges that the FDA violated the law in its hasty approval of four swine flu vaccines by failing to scientifically determine neither the safety nor efficacy of the vaccines.

    “The suit will seek an injunction against the FDA from approving the vaccine,” attorney Jim Turner told NaturalNews on Thursday evening’s Natural News Talk Hour show. “And the core of the argument is that they have not done the proper safety and efficacy tests on the vaccine to allow it to be release at this time.”

    The suit seeks to not only nullify the FDA’s unlawful “approval” of the four H1N1 influenza vaccines, but to also ask the court to issue an injunction that would halt any mandatory vaccination requirements.

    “The FDA is required by law to establish that a vaccine is safe and effective before it can be given to the public,” said Turner. “We are arguing that they did not establish that the vaccine was effective, and did not establish that it was safe. They are trying to get it on the market by a waiver.”

    DOLLAR OFFICIALLY DEAD: No longer the global reserve currency! Did Bilderberg group succeed spending 9 Trillion$ through US Federal Reserve and Obama administration in 9 months?
    by DefendUSx October 13, 2009 17:01

    From NYPost.com .. clueless liberal spin .. unaware of who really caused the dollar to fail on purpose

    Ben Bernanke’s dollar crisis went into a wider mode yesterday as the greenback was shockingly upstaged by the euro and yen, both of which can lay claim to the world title as the currency favored by central banks as their reserve currency.

    Over the last three months, banks put 63 percent of their new cash into euros and yen — not the greenbacks — a nearly complete reversal of the dollar’s onetime dominance for reserves, according to Barclays Capital. The dollar’s share of new cash in the central banks was down to 37 percent — compared with two-thirds a decade ago.

    Fed boss Ben Bernanke may be forced to raise rates in order to restore faith in the dollar — and help bring the euro and the yen back to earth.

    Currently, dollars account for about 62 percent of the currency reserve at central banks — the lowest on record, said the International Monetary Fund.

    Bernanke could go down in economic history as the man who killed the greenback on the operating table.

    After printing up trillions of new dollars and new bonds to stimulate the US economy, the Federal Reserve chief is now boxed into a corner battling two separate monsters that could devour the economy — ravenous inflation on one hand, and a perilous recession on the other.

    “He’s in a crisis worse than the meltdown ever was,” said Peter Schiff, president of Euro Pacific Capital. “I fear that he could be the Fed chairman who brought down the whole thing.”

    Investors and central banks are snubbing dollars because the greenback is kept too weak by zero interest rates and a flood of greenbacks in the global economy.

    They grumble that they’ve loaned the US record amounts to cover its mounting debt, but are getting paid back by a currency that’s worth 10 percent less in the past three months alone. In a decade, it’s down nearly one-third.

    Yesterday, the dollar had a mixed performance, falling slightly against the British pound to $1.5801 from $1.5846 Friday, but rising against the euro to $1.4779 from $1.4709 and against the yen to 89.85 yen from 89.78.

    Economists believe the market rebellion against the dollar will spread until Bernanke starts raising interest rates from around zero to the high single digits, and pulls back the flood of currency spewed from US printing presses.

    “That’s a cure, but it’s also going to stifle any US economic growth,” said Schiff. “The economy is addicted to the cheap interest and liquidity.”

    Economists warn that a jump in rates will clobber stocks and cripple the already stalled housing market.

    “Bernanke’s other choice is to keep rates at zero, print even more money and sell more debt, but we’ll see triple-digit inflation that could collapse the economy as we know it.

    “The stimulus is what’s toxic — we’re poisoning ourselves and the global economy with it.”

    Globalist cover-up hiding Obama’s past?
    ——————————————————————————–
    Posted: October 13, 2009
    1:00 am Eastern

    © 2009

    Barack Obama has spent (or had spent for him) between $1.8 million and $3.2 million in legal fees to keep his personal records secret. These include his birth certificate, his college records and all else that could provide more insight into his past.

    But why? Who spends that kind of money to keep their records hidden unless they have something to hide? And if someone (especially a political figure, not to mention a sitting president) is willing to go to such lengths, it is reasonable to believe he has something to hide. It is reasonable to believe that whatever it is they are hiding would be damning if revealed. What could it be that Obama is so fearful of having revealed?

    Consider the kind of power it takes to command such silence. Let’s face it – there is nothing not known that cannot be made known – Jimmy Hoffa’s resting place notwithstanding.

    Let’s first start with what it takes to keep the cacophony of silence and complicit cover-up silent and covered up.

    Discover the truth about the intimidation tactics used by today’s White House in Whistleblower magazine’s “MOB RULE: Under Obama, Chicago-style bullying and intimidation go nationwide”

    Joan Swirsky writes that Douglas Hagmann, in an interview with Dr. Laurie Roth, revealed, “The reason for the media blackout about [Obama’s] birth-certificate issue was nothing less than organized Mafia-like dire threats to members of the media, issued not only from the heads of major TV and radio stations, but also from Federal Communication Commission officials. According to Hagmann and [his investigative partner] Judi McCleod, who conducted a nine-month investigation and documented their findings scrupulously,” threats were made to fire major talk-show hosts if they mentioned Obama’s birth certificate, threats were made by FCC officials to yank broadcasting licenses, and memos were circulated by corporate TV headquarters to all on-air employees advising them not to mention the birth-certificate issue, his lawyer’s license or his college records. (“Who is behind quashing the birth-certificate issue?”; Aug. 26, 2009; RenewAmerica.com)

    According to Swirsky, during the interview Hagmann and McCleod alluded to e-mails and other evidence in their possession – copies of which, they said, were secreted in several locations.

    But the question that begs answering is: Why go to such lengths to keep documents away from public scrutiny? The birth-certificate issue is only a critical problem if, as many believe, it contradicts Obama’s citizenship story. And why prevent access to college records or restrict inquiry concerning his law license? It was Michelle who mysteriously had her license suspended in 1993.

    An even more pressing question is: How does a person like Obama – a nobody from nowhere – come to command such power and money so as to pull this off? Think about what it takes for a presidential candidate, and now sitting president, to have such power.

    The answer can only be that Obama is the front man for something far more sinister. One person, without the strength and backing of a cabal capable of toppling governments and affecting worldwide currencies, etc., could not even consider such an undertaking, much less pull it off.

    (Column continues below)

    Ergo, the logical conclusion must then be that behind Obama there exists a group or organization so powerful and so sinister that they are able not just to influence global policy, but to control it. I repeat for the record, Obama in and of himself cannot, by any stretch of the imagination, singularly demand that every major media outlet ignore investigating that which could potentially make Woodward and Bernstein’s investigation into President Nixon pale in comparison.

    Global domination is obviously their goal, but what in Obama’s background threatens to derail them if it were exposed? Rumors and suspicions abound pursuant to his citizenship, but if someone has enough power to silence a worldwide press and media, they would certainly have the ability to forge or recreate birth documents.

    Also, Obama didn’t go to school in a vacuum. If there were something in his college records or if he had committed a crime or whatever, other students would know it and those persons would have by now leaked same to a credible source or outlet.

    But there is one thing that wouldn’t be as accessible to public scrutiny and that is his medical records. If in his background there is evidence of emotional breakdown, susceptibility to breakdown, emotional instability or something similar and it became known, it is the one thing that could derail the objectives of the power behind him.

    I’m not an investigative journalist. I write opinion, and it is my opinion that Obama is but the tip of something much larger, and if same were to become known it would reverberate worldwide. If he isn’t, then he should make the requested records available immediately. No other president or leader – not Castro, not Chavez, not Clinton, not Khrushchev – has demanded and received the secrecy he has. No one was capable of such a feat until now.

    It is time, no matter the risk or the cost, for investigators and reporters to do their jobs. The American public has the right to know the truth about Obama.

    Lou Dobbs to Fox Business? Roger Ailes hopes so
    Posted Oct 12th 2009 2:10PM by Zac Bissonnette
    Filed under: Television

    Fox is hoping to beef up its roster of talent for its up and coming (although currently widely mocked) Fox Business Network.

    And who are they hoping to add? None other than CNN’s Lou Dobbs. According to The New York Times, citing “two people with direct knowledge of the meeting”, Mr. Dobbs met for dinner with Fox News president Roger Ailes.

    In a way, Dobbs would be a perfect fit for Fox. A long-respected financial news pundit with a decidedly right-wing bent, Dobbs has taken on an increasingly shrill and conspiratorial tone in recent years. He became the laughingstock of CNN when he absolutely refused to let the Obama birth certificate scandal die, even after any number of third-party fact checkers had dismissed it as bogus. The Southern Poverty Law Center deemed his crusade questioning Obama’s birthplace “racist” — an allegation that seemed to fit well with Dobbs’ track record of extreme right-wing sentiment on immigration issues.

    Conspiracies, lunatic ranting, and xenophobia. Yep. He’d actually be a great fit on Fox. Perhaps he and Glenn Beck could co-host a show –“Live From the Kings Park Psychiatric Center” on Long Island.
