Two soldiers fired on a huge creature of light, while a third was blinded by

intensa luz esverdeada emanada da criatura. intense greenish light emanating from the creature.

Este, viria a sofrer diversas seqüelas depois do ocorrido. This, many would suffer consequences after the fact.

Mas, o maior mistério desse caso ainda estaria por vir… But the biggest mystery of that event still to come …

Spanish Air Force Base

This case occurred in Base Talavera la Real (Spain), on the morning of November 12, 1976.

Was experienced and witnessed by three soldiers of the Spanish Air Force.

That morning, 1:45 a.m., Jose Maria Trejo and Juan Lujan Carrizosa were on sentry called Zone Fuel of that database and Jet Aircraft School a few miles from Badajoz.

Jose Maria Trejo recalls that, “We were reinforcing, each in his watch,” when, around 1:45 a.m. in the morning, both soldiers, located 60 meters from each other, they heard some strange noises that “resembled the classic radio interference.

And then, out of the darkness, the noise changed and became a kind of high pitched whistle and pervasive that it “hurt your ears”

The soldiers went from surprise to astonishment and then to the logical concern.

“We were in the area of fuel and could deal with it any attempt at sabotage.

This situation began to worry, “says the witness. However, penetrating whistle that only lasted five minutes.

Then there was silence again.

“Did you hear?” He shouted to his companion Jose Trejo Juan Carrizosa, who replied, “Yes, hear …

What would it be? ….

The strange noise was heard near the lookout that if Jose Trejo enconrtava in surveillance.

Trejo, facing the possibility of whether it is someone trying to enter the military, asked his companion approached him to make a thorough inspection in that area.

Both were armed with rifles (Z-62) and the appropriate ammunition.

After about five minutes of silence that noise was again heard.

“We thought we were getting crazy.

It was very acute.

It seemed that would pierce our eardrums.

Heard for more than five minutes approximately.

Then came the silence again.

And this time, failing to hear, this time, “we saw a light in the sky.

It was a ‘shine’ that looked like a stick.

Was high and in our vertical.

He stretched himself in an area of sky that could perhaps cover Badajoz.

About a 15 or 25 seconds later, the same “shine” disappeared.

The soldiers were astonished.

[….]

And huge green creature

Trejo says that “sensed something”, as if someone was behind him. He became alert and made “a shiver go through my stomach.’ve Looked through the corner of his eye and saw a little to my left a green light …

I turned as if impelled by an impulse e. ..

Oh, my God …

I found myself in the face of fantastic and inexplicable thing I’ve seen in my entire life …

It was a human figure, so it seemed …

But it was quite high, was about three meters.

It was all light

We were about 15m away from a ‘what’. … It was all light

A green light …

Equal brightness match tonight.

And the “strange,” said another witness, that figure is that all light, seemed made up of small dots …

At the edges of these same dots were very intense.

The head was small, as if covered by a helmet …

The arms were wide and thick body.

“I was resting on the ground!

But we did not see the feet or legs …

The arms were in the cross and his hands were well defined.

The soldier then Trejo, who was the first to see the figure, was paralyzed by terror and surprise.

He recalled that “I do not know how much time passed until it can react.

Maybe 10 or 15 seconds …

I had the gun in position to shoot and when I decided to make him feel a general crash.

I could not shoot!

I could not shoot!

I could not.

He says he did not understand what was happening, “I began to feel weak.

Perfectly saw and heard, but felt a faint progressive.

And, before dropping to his knees on the ground screaming, “If you throw down!

Otherwise they kill us …’.

At that time I did not say another word.

Without being able to avoid it, had the face to the ground, conscious but still …

Just the sight that it started to fail. It was as if everything was slowly darkening.

The cry of the soldier, the two companions were astonished and came Trejo. Almost in unison, as if obeying a mechanism, both the soldiers opened fire on the strange figure.

“We fired like crazy …”, a witness account. In all those two together, made 40 to 50 shots, all of them, of course, against that gigantic figure illuminated.

Trejo recalls, “I heard the shots, was on the floor, but could hear.”

And what happened with that picture?

“N the time of the shooting she became even brighter, as the flash of a camera, and disappeared just as a TV goes off.

We were further surprised.

What was it really?

Onde estava?”. Where were you? “.

While the two soldiers tried to help Trejo, the three together could again hear the sound they had realized minutes before the appearance of being bright.

And coming from the same direction, the eucalyptus.

This time the noise lasted 10 to 15 seconds.

Then came the silence again …

Mystery

Ao raiar do dia, cerca de 50 homens, a mando de um oficial, varreram toda a área do ocorrido.

By daybreak, about 50 men under the command of an officer, swept through the area occurred.

E eis que surge um detalhe inacreditável: não foi encontrado um único cartucho das cerca de 50 balas que foram disparadas e, no muro, onde devia haver marcas dos impactos das balas, não se via o menor sinal de tiroteio.

And here comes an unbelievable detail: not found a single cartridge of about 50 bullets were fired, and the wall where there should be trademarks of the impact of bullets, not seen the slightest sign of gunfire.

A Força Aérea constatou que as metralhadoras haviam sido disparadas.

The Air Force found that the guns had been fired.

O que teria acontecido com aqueles projéteis disparadas contra o ser?

What happened to those missiles being fired at?

Como era possível que nenhuma bala tivesse cravado no muro situado atrás da figura sendo que os soldados disseram terem disparados tiros à meia altura?

How was it possible that no bullet had pierced the wall located behind the figure and said that soldiers had fired shots at half time?

Afinal, com “o que” teriam os guaritas se confrontado?

After all, with “what” would have faced if the sentry?

Location. Talavera La Real AFB Badajoz Spain
Date: November 12 1976
Time: 0145A

Jose Maria Trejo and Juan Carrizosa Lujan were on sentry duty when they heard a very loud, penetrating whistle that continued for 5 minutes, stopped, and then started again. As it stopped for the second time, they saw a light in the sky, “like a flare,” which lit up a wide area beneath it, in the direction of Badajoz. After 15-20 seconds this light vanished. A third sentry, Jose Hidalgo, joined them; accompanied by a guard dog, and they went to search the fuel stockpile area. They had gone about 1000 ft when they experienced a localized “whirlwind,” which alarmed them and caused them to load their rifles. Then, hearing a sound as of branches being broken in the direction of some nearby eucalyptus trees, they loosed the dog. He dashed off toward the trees, but after a few seconds staggered back, as though sick, and whimpering. 4 or 5 times they got the dog to go to the trees, but each time he came back in the same way. Then Trejo glimpsed a greenish light out of the corner of his eyes, and turning around, beheld a luminous humanoid figure at least 10 ft tall, only 50 ft away. The luminous figure seemed to consist entirely of small points of light—along its periphery; these luminous points were more intense. The small head seemed to be covered with a sort of helmet. The body was thick. The arms seemed to be crossed. Legs and feet could not be seen. Trejo tried to fire his rifle, but was unable to; he felt a sensation of weakness, and collapsed to the ground. The other two men, a little farther away, caught sight of the entity at this moment, and fired at it. Between them they fired 40-50 shots. At the moment the firing began, the apparition vanished. The other two men helped Trejo to his feet, and at this time all 3 heard the whistle again, from the direction of the eucalyptus trees; it lasted for 10-15 seconds, and then ceased. At dawn 50 men searched the area. They found nothing; in particular, they could not find a single cartridge case. Moreover, the adobe wall of the base, which was just behind the being, showed not a single bullet-pock. A few days after the incident, Trejo lost his vision, and then fell unconscious. Hospital tests showed nothing abnormal. About 2 weeks later he again lost his vision for about 15 minutes. He was hospitalized for a month and during that time suffered from severe headaches.

    British paranormal expert Richard Lawrence discussed ET contacts and communications, UFO disclosure, and ancient reports of UFOs.

    He spoke about various contactees such as George Adamski, and George King, who founded the Aetherius Society and channeled messages from benevolent ET beings or “Space Masters.”

    One of themes that runs across the various communications from ETs is the importance of spirituality throughout the universe, Lawrence noted.

    King spoke about intelligences from within our solar system and multi-dimensional existences,

    while 1950s contactee Dan Fry said the beings he interacted with were from the past, specifically the civilization of Atlantis.

    In King’s book, The Nine Freedoms, he shares ET information about humankind’s evolution

    — one of the first evolutionary steps is bravery, to think outside of the standard conditioning,

    and another step is to become oriented toward service-to-others, rather than service-to-self.

    Here’s Why Quantitative Easing 2 Will Fail Spectacularly

    http://www.businessinsider.com/quantitative-easing-fail-spectacularly-2010-10

    Bernanke’s policies have fostered the belief that the Fed and Treasury will backstop any losses suffered by the big players.

    Moral hazard has been destroyed along with interest earned by cash.

    If the big banks suffer losses due to gambling, they know the Fed will rescue them by buying the toxic assets from them, all in the name of “quantitative easing.”

    Bernanke’s QE ship is thus sailing directly for the shoals, and we can predict it will run aground and sink in the months ahead.

    The consequences will be dire for all the asset bubbles and for the Fed itself.

    Having sailed the ship onto the rocks, the Fed’s treasured independence will start being questioned, and it will become politically popular to call for its dismantling.

    All of Bernanke’s QE funds have flowed into risky assets, inflating concurrent bubbles in all asset classes.

    Gold is up, equities are up, bonds are up, commodities are up–and all can fall (disinflate) together as the failure of QE triggers a rejection of the policy.

    The bond market could destroy ZIRP in a week.

    Once there is political pressure on the Fed not to “monetize” new Federal debt by buying Treasuries either directly or through proxies,

    then the bond market may choke on the trillions of dollars being issued in new debt.

    Net result: interest rates would rise, regardless of Bernanke’s ZIRP.

    QE2 will fail spectacularly, because it offers a “solution” to a “problem” which doesn’t exist.

    Please see Look Out Below (I’ve got a bad feeling about this) for a look at what this might mean for stocks.

    Hey Big Spender!

    Obama touts $50 billion transportation proposal

    http://www.montereyherald.com/national/ci_16309877?nclick_check=1

    Obama is eager to show action on the sluggish economy just ahead of the Nov. 2 congressional elections, with his party in jeopardy of losing a sizable number of seats in the House and Senate.

    Obama asked for Republican support, saying infrastructure work typically draws bipartisan support.

    But such cooperation seems unlikely in the current partisan atmosphere.

    The economy continues to dominate public concern.

    The public sector slashed 159,000 jobs in September, including the largest cuts by local governments in 28 years.

    Obama is addicted to spending.

    FROM JEROME CORSI’S RED ALERT

    420 banks demand 1-world currency

    International finance group seeks remedy to looming exchange wars

    ——————————————————————————–
    Posted: October 10, 2010

    http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=213953

    “A core group of the world’s leading economies need to come together and hammer out an understanding,” Charles Dallara, the Institute of International Finance’s managing director, told the Financial Times.

    An IIF policy letter authored by Dallara and dated Oct. 4 made clear that global currency coordination was needed, in the group’s view, to prevent a looming currency war.

    “The narrowly focused unilateral and bilateral policy actions seen in recent months – including many proposed and actual measures on trade, currency intervention and monetary policy – have contributed to worsening underlying macroeconomic imbalances,” Dallara wrote.

    “They have also led to growing protectionist pressures as countries scramble for export markets as a source of growth.”

    Dallard encouraged a return to the G-20 commitment to utilize International Monetary Fund special drawing rights to create an international one-world currency alternative to the U.S. dollar as a new standard of foreign-exchange reserves.

    Likewise, a July United Nations report called for the replacement of the dollar as the standard for holding foreign-exchange reserves in international trade with a new one-world currency issued by the International Monetary Fund.

    The 176-page report, titled “United Nations World Economic and Social Survey 2010,” was issued at a high-level meeting of the U.N. Economic and Social Council and published in its entirety on the U.N. website.

    Being pro or anti gay marriage is one thing.

    But what scares me is that the truly homophobic won’t even accept that being a homosexual is NOT a choice.

    Below is from Jean Ederman and explains how he received the information in CHANGE THE WORLD! “DECIDE WHETHER WE SHOULD SHOW UP!”

    I have seen UFOs for several years and I’ve had contacts with some ET beings.

    I am 42, with both a technical education (military jet pilot and air traffic controller), economic (masters) and management (airport manager).

    From the age of six, I’ve had various spiritual type experiences that are continually taking on more shape and meaning.

    Among the many types of phenomena that have manifested during the last two years,

    for example when I received a message on the tri-dimensional nature of time while a UFO was hanging over my house and had ‘announced’ its presence by a terrific noise,

    and then when an enormous triangular craft flew over my house when I was in the process of moving, followed by an aerial battle of lights lasting 25 minutes,

    and also multiple apparitions of celestial lights and ethereal creatures in my house,

    and finally, after having learned how to mentally project myself to a place in the presence of benevolent extraterrestrials,

    I received the following message on behalf of their hierarchy.

    Visit of super advanced extraterrestrial life forms in 2012 from Galaxy Abell 1835 IR1916, 13.2 billion light years from earth?

    Jul. 27, 2010

    http://www.indiadaily.com/editorial/21597.asp

    Visit of super advanced extraterrestrial life forms in 2012 from Galaxy Abell 1835 IR1916, 13.2 billion light years from earth?

    It is the furthest galaxy from the earth. It was formed roughly 700 million years after the big bang.

    The life forms in this Galaxy is invisible. They harness gravity waves.

    They live simultaneously in matter and anti-matter universes.

    They exchange lives between dimensions without a reboot or death as we know.

    The UFOs span across the ten dimensions. They travel into Hyperspace and are guided from the chilled universe below the Hyperspace.

    They communicate via integrated consciousness. They harness zero point energy from quantum vacuum.

    They defy the chaotic nature of the quantum mechanics. They live in the world of perfect or zero entropy.

    They travel by bending space and time and taking short cuts across the higher dimensions.

    They communicate with telepathy and base their civilization on the principle of the eternal continuity in the singularities of integrated consciousness.

    They access the central black holes of every Galaxy and control the fine tuning of the universe. Their civilization prosper in the dark energy.

    They use time dimension to create and recreate the formation and reformations of Galaxies, star systems, and Black Holes.

    More from the “India Daily Technology Team”

    In a monumental announcement yesterday, the Indian Daily Technology Team disclosed that quantized vortices from the Andromeda and Triangulum Galaxies show clear signs of very advanced extraterrestrial civilizations.

    ***

    Scientists are finding first signs of computationally verifiable prove of the existence of very advanced extraterrestrial civilization.

    It is a dark matter civilization, extremely advanced based on Bose-Einstein condensate of astronomical extent.

    The Andromeda Galaxy is a spiral galaxy approximately 2,500,000 light-years away in the constellation Andromeda.

    Andromeda Galaxy has satellite galaxies, consisting of 14 known dwarf galaxies. The satellite galaxies are M32 and M110.

    The Triangulum Galaxy is a spiral galaxy approximately 3 million light-years away in the constellation Triangulum.

    With the Andromeda Galaxy, it’s one of the two nearest large spiral galaxies comparable to the Milky Way.

    Since it’s so close, we can get a nice panoramic view.

    Scientists have found that dark matter arising from spontaneous symmetry breaking of a neutral scalar field coupled to gravity comprises ultra low mass bosons with a Bose-Einstein condensation temperature far above the present background temperature.

    The galactic halos consist of a Bose-Einstein condensate of astronomical extent.

    Based on this, scientists have calculated the condensate coherence length, transition temperatures, mass distribution, and orbital velocity curves, and deduced the particle mass and number density from the observed rotation curves for the Andromeda and Triangulum galaxies.

    Advanced research projects find the possibility of superfluid behaviour in the halos of rotating galaxies.

    The computational estimates of the critical angular frequency and line density for formation of quantised vortices show signs of activities of a very advanced extraterrestrial civilization.

    The extraterrestrial civilization can control intergalactic interactions, star formation, and black hole-wormhole interactions.

    The Most Important Race In 2010

    http://hughhewitt.com/blog/g/44df1d14-3846-4ffc-86b5-e99ecb95200d

    Unless the House or Senate comes down to a one-seat margin, we have to assume that the most important race in America is the one for the statehouse in Sacramento.

    The reason is simple: America’s economy cannot begin to grow at the rate we and the world needs until its engine in the Golden State gets the huge overhaul it needs.

    If Meg Whitman wins, the reforms California needs so desperately have a chance of occurring.

    The state would gain a leader with genuine, successful executive experience of the sort that is so obviously in short supply for so many years.

    Massive restructuring has to occur, and quickly.

    Deep cuts in the size and scope of government have to take place in a rational, planned fasion, or default and haphazard slicing and dicing wil follow.

    The coalition in Great Britain has been going about the work there that is necessary on America’s West Coast.

    The new governor will have to invoke emergency powers and will have to use them.

    If Jerry Brown wins, the collapse of the Golden State’s finances is only a matter of time, and the exodus of businesses and producers from the state will accelerate.

    What serious business leader with options will keep his or her operations in a state “run” in a three-way partnership by and between the grid-locked legislature, the unions and Jerry Brown?

    (After the primaries, I predicted Brown would win. I hope I was wrong.)

    And people like Madison understood the importance of keeping the Church and the state separate.

    We after all, broke from England in part for those reasons. So the founders themselves weren’t uniform in their views.

    They weren’t uniform in most of their views, because like human beings, they had differences.

    But I think when you talk about the people who shaped the Constitution, the view was look, we’re not going to favor sectarian faiths, or one religion over another.

    Now that doesn’t mean that when you get into issues of the role of militant Islam, or Islam in America and what the implications can be in the war on terror, that you’re not cognizant of those things,

    and I certainly don’t think that the building of the Mosque near Ground Zero can be justified on Constitutional grounds in this sense.

    And no one’s disputing, at least no one I know is disputing that they have a Constitutional right to be there.

    The issue really was one of prudence and judgment.

    And if, in fact, the imam wanted to do what he said he wanted to do, which was to increase good relations and comity between people of the Muslim faith and people not of the Muslim faith,

    I think he did exactly the wrong thing, and indeed he antagonized relations in a way that troubles me.

    Giving Civility a Chance

    October 11, 2010 10:11 A.M.

    http://www.nationalreview.com/kudlows-money-politics/249350/giving-civility-chance

    Greenwich, Connecticut, on Monday, October 25 at 7:30 P.M., at the Greenwich Library’s Cole Auditorium.

    It’s called, “What Is the Role of Government in the Nation’s Economy?”

    Steve Moore, my friend and a regular guest on CNBC’s Kudlow Report, is a panelist, along with economist Mark Zandi and Christopher Shays, the man who prior to being defeated in 2008 was New England’s lone Republican congressman.

    The moderator will be John Yemma, editor-in-chief of the Christian Science Monitor, the highly respected international newspaper.

    It’s a good crew.

    So before I push the snooze button on this one, I’m willing to see if these guys can make Judy and her pals happy by being both civil and enlightening.

    If you’re anywhere near Greenwich on October 25, check it out.

    Tea Party members and elected officials rally for more border security

    http://www.kgun9.com/Global/story.asp?S=13297303

    TUCSON (KGUN9-TV)

    Tea Party members are rallying against things like taxes, bailouts and “Obamacare” but on Saturday its border security and immigration that’s getting the crowd on their feet.

    “I took an oath of honor to enforce the laws, all the laws,” said Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

    Sheriff Arpaio and Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu are asking voters to stand up against illegal immigration and vote for candidates who will tighten border control.

    This is something they both say the Feds aren’t doing.

    “They put up 15 billboard-sized signs written in English facing north saying danger, warning, travel not recommended, drug and human smuggling and guns men

    “instead of in Spanish facing south saying stay out”

    said Sheriff Babeu.

    The Department of Public Safety concluded “a hole was located on the back left side of the T-shirt.

    Senator Judd Gregg at his best.

    Retiring New Hampshire Sen. Judd Gregg, a Republican, countered: “It would be hard for me to disagree with that more strongly.”

    “That small business bill…that the governor talked about – conceptually, it was a good idea. It just wasn’t paid for,” the Republican said.

    When Granholm interjected to say that the $30 billion legislation was paid for, a frustrated Gregg said

    “Governor – you don’t know what you’re talking about.”

    “I happen to be the ranking member on the Budget Committee; I’ll tell you, it wasn’t paid for,” Gregg said.

    “Next year it added $88 billion to the deficit. Over 10 years, they allege it was paid for.

    In the last three or four years, they allege that there’s an adjustment which accomplishes that in the seventh, eighth and ninth years. […]

    It’s the same little game and gimmick that they play around here on almost everything.”

    “If you want to continue to run these deficits up on our kids, you go ahead and do it, governor,” Gregg added.

    ‘Young Guns’ Look to Chart a New Path for Conservatives

    http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/politics/july-dec10/youngguns_10-06.html

    RAY SUAREZ: Members of your own caucus have said, don’t worry.

    Social Security’s not on the table, military spending’s not on the table, and Medicare’s not on the table.

    Well, if you take those three and you say, we’re walling them off, it’s hard to imagine what you could cut to get us to balance at some point in the future.

    REP. KEVIN MCCARTHY: Not really. Not really.

    RAY SUAREZ: Well, give me some examples.

    REP. KEVIN MCCARTHY: I will give you an example. Anybody that rides a first-class ticket on Amtrak, that’s only 16 percent.

    But you know, when you buy that sleeper car, the taxpayer spends $364 subsidizing your ticket, so you could have your bed drawn down.

    Do you realize that people that represent a union and work for a federal government, they go out on their off time — on their time to work for the union, the federal government pays for that union work.

    That’s another $120 million.

    Do you realize that we give economic aid — not humanitarian aid — to countries that have $50 billion or more in debt they own for us,

    meaning that we’re borrowing 40 cents out of a dollar from China to give them the millions of dollars?

    There are so many places we could go through one by one.

    And when we say to do this, do you realize discretionary spending that we’re talking about yielding back grew 88 percent in the last three years?

    Why do you have 87 different programs for child nutrition? Couldn’t you merge those together and get some savings? Business had to do this.

    Homes have to do this. If families are doing it, the government should learn to do it as well.

    (I need to find out more about REP. KEVIN MCCARTHY.)

    In their new book, “Young Guns: A New Generation of Conservative Leaders,” three Republican congressmen outline how the GOP should govern if it regains control of the House. Ray Suarez talks to authors Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, Virginia’s Eric Cantor and Kevin McCarthy of California.

    Edgar Cayce’s Axis Pole Shift

    by John Van Auken

    3/3/2010

    http://www.edgarcayce.org/are/blog.aspx?id=3030

    Here’s the hard news:

    In order to have shifted from Thuban as the Pole Star to Polaris, the Earth would have shifted its northern axis pole about 26°, not a drastic shift.

    However, in order to shift from Polaris as the Pole Star to Vega, the Earth will have to shift its northern axis pole a whopping 51°!

    But, if it is done gradually, over a very long period of time, as Cayce indicated it would, then we should not be expecting a dramatic pole shift in the next few years.

    It’s enough to know that the present age is ending and a new age is beginning.

    One: I’m amused that this attack line about foreign money and the Chamber took off on the lefty site Think Progress, as it’s a nifty counterpoint to the endless liberal whining whenever the White House jumps at a story being pushed by the “right-wing noise machine,” a.k.a. Fox News and talk radio.

    As Ed noted this morning, the charge in this case is so egregiously unfair that even the NYT felt obliged to debunk it in the heat of campaign season

    — and yet everyone from Obama to his VP to his senior advisor to the head of the DNC is biting down on it like it’s a new chew toy.

    That’s curious behavior given the White House’s much-chronicled antipathy to the “professional left” and liberal bloggers, no?

    Not surprising religion views homosexuality negatively

    http://onfaith.washingtonpost.com/onfaith/panelists/marcus_borg/2010/10/not_surprising_religion_views_homosexuality_negatively.html

    New York GOP gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino said,

    “I don’t want [children] to be brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid or successful option” to heterosexuality.

    “children”

    For me, this is understandable.

    “an equally valid or successful option”

    This is what we have to get past. For the vast majority of homosexuals, this is NOT an “option.”

    Here’s the full statement:

    We are appalled by Carl Paladino’s comments denigrating homosexuality and suggesting that a homosexual lifestyle is not “valid.”

    His statements are an affront to all New Yorkers, and are particularly disturbing in light of several recent hate crimes targeting the LGBT community in the New York Metropolitan Area.

    We have repeatedly urged all candidates to refrain from appeals to prejudice and bigotry.

    Such appeals are offensive, counterproductive and contrary to our nation’s democratic values.

    Earlier this year, ADL urged our national leaders – and candidates – to commit themselves to restoring civility to our public discourse.

    We renew that call today.

    A truly effective candidate is one who engages in thoughtful and reasoned debate and rejects divisive and hateful rhetoric.

    That is an essential ingredient of leadership.

    Hullabaloo Over Paladino Misses Real Story: GOP ignoring gay issues (just as they did in ’94)

    http://www.gaypatriot.net/2010/10/12/hullabaloo-over-paladino-misses-real-storygop-ignoring-gay-issues-just-as-they-did-in-94/

    Now, I’ll grant that there is some, shall we say, inappropriate activity at some gay pride parades, things that are better left behind closed doors.

    And it’s pretty clear that Paladino was calling the public “grinding” disgusting.

    That said, he was trying to making a campaign issue of his opponent’s attendance a gay pride pride!?!?!

    C’mon, I mean, doesn’t the Empire State have some pretty pressing fiscal issues that the next Governor will need to confront?

    Not just that, a man who is in hot water for farming out a speech addressing gay issues to “an ardent opponent of gay rights” should probably leave well enough alone and refrain from talking about gay pride parades.

    Should Paladino refrain from talking about gay issues, he’d be following the lead of most Republicans this cycle, indeed, the lead of most Republicans in cycles where the GOP emerges victorious.

    And that’s the real story that the media and bloggers are missing.

    Paladino stands out this year by getting in hot water for his remarks on gay issues because he’s one of the few candidates putting his foot in his mouth on such issues, indeed, one of the few trying to use gays as, what some might call, a “wedge issue.”

    Mr. Paladino may not get it, but most people, including most Republicans have moved on.

    Land of Israel is the homeland of the Jewish people – Imam Palazzi

    http://www.weeklyblitz.net/1036/land-of-israel-is-the-homeland-of-the-jewish

    Q: What is your opinion on the proposed mosque at Ground Zero site, promoted by Imam Faisal Abdur Rauf?

    A: The so-called “mosque at Ground Zero” in reality is not a mosque, but an Muslim community center, and is not located in Ground Zero, but in a closer area, Lower Manhattan.

    In abstract and general terms, I agree with President Obama when he says that religious freedom is a right of all the U.S. citizens, and it includes the freedom to built – according to the rules of law – places of worship and comminity centers in all the territory of the United States.

    To be more specific, I think the real problem is with Saudis funding and controlling mosts of mosques and Muslim community centers in the United States.

    In my opinion, the project of Lower Manhattan is included in a wider question:

    how it is possible that a regime which does no grant any religious freedom to its citizens and to its alien residents is permitted to fund its own places of worship in a free country?

    Unfortunately, the power of the oil lobby in the U.S. is such that this capital question is passed under silence.

    Immediately after 9/11, Bush Jr. worked hard to cover the links existing between al-Qa’idah and the House of Sa’ud, and Obama keeps doing so until today.

    Q: Does Islam endorse autocracy or authoritarian rule? If not, then, how you look into the Saudi and Arab monarchism?

    A: Islam prescribes the principle of Shura, according to which the only legitimate government is the one based on the will of its subjects.

    Apart from this, it does not specify which kind of State it must be; it can be a Unitarian State, a federal republic or a constitutional monarchy.

    The Sa’udi regime does not fit those criteria, because it is a tyrannical regime and because its Royal Family is formed by depravity people and criminals.

    This is Alice-in-Wonderland stuff, completely divorced from the verystrong currents driving the electorate.

    Last night Dennis Prager and I held a townhall in Ontario California with more than 400 people, and as was the case with the townhall I moderated Sunday with Meg Whitman and Rudy Giuliani,

    the voters who are coming to such gatherings are motivated by a deep, deep concern over the direction of the country and the hard-left policies of the president and his Congressional allies.

    The biggest concern is that the GOP, if given back one or both majorities on the Hill, will be timid or slow.

    I don’t think you can find anyone attending a rally over the recently cooked-up allegations of foreign money.

    Nor can you find many Democrats enthusiastically defending the president’s program and demanding more of his medicine for all that ails us.

    With three weeks to go, all one party wants to talk about what the president, Pelosi and Reid have done these past two years.

    The other party wants to talk about anything except that record.

    But we could go all the way to 55 with these sort of surprises that are popping here at the end.

    For example, there’s a seat in Maine, the 1st district.

    The Democrat candidate was the former president of Common Cause, and she testified in Congress against members of Congress flying on private planes and other people’s jets.

    Why? Why? Because the Torah — God’s law — is all about responsibilities. Well, wait, don’t I get rights from God? Yes, yes.

    How many have children? When your children were little or if they still are little, do you make a list of all the things you have to do?

    Make your bed, do this, put a little star by their name. They check it off. Make sure you’ve done this, and this and this.

    Why don’t we write down — by the way, you have a right to a roof over your head?

    By the way, you have a — you have a right to three square a day and a bed? Why don’t I teach my children that? Because that’s implied.

    I’m a good dad. Good mom. That’s implied.

    All that mom and dad have to do is focus on the responsibilities, because we all know as parents, once we lose our responsibility, once somebody is not pulling their weight in the house, the pattern is lost.

    And the whole thing breaks apart.

    So, that’s usually, that happens in the teenage years when a parent says, as long as you’re living under my house, you’ll obey my rules, right?

    That’s usually when the teenager, at their worst, says, You can’t do that to me. I have rights! And that’s when your house is in chaos.

    That’s what’s happening now.

    We don’t — we don’t have to worry about our rights, when we start concentrating on our responsibilities and we start concentrating on the pattern, the pattern.

    We will be OK and it will restore itself.

    The free market — the free market, I think it’s God’s way of teaching people how to do good. And here’s why: How can you get game?

    How can you get game?

    You can either come up with an idea and convince other people, this is a great idea and then you can sell it to them. And then they can buy it.

    And they’ll tell a friend, this is fantastic. And they’ll buy another one from you. And it will spread.

    What are you doing?

    For the free market to work, because it only work — if you are selling your friends and people crap, it will only work for a short period of time.

    People will go: that’s crap.

    So, for the free market to work provide something that somebody needs, somebody wants.

    Something that’s going to enrich their life or make them have an easier go of it — that’s the free market system.

    The only other way to make money is to cheat, to steal or to swindle.

    But it’s really just those choices. Guess which one we’ve been doing lately?

    Back in just a second.

    Excerpts

    The highlights were:

    a) the sinking of the Indonesian tongue of the Eurasian plate, as it confronts the push of the Indo-Australian plate;

    b) the mega-quakes of Japan, beginning in the southern islands and moving north, causing a tsunami to rush towards Victoria, on the west coast of Canada and even more importantly, setting off the New Madrid;

    c) the crushing of the Caribbean plate by the South American plate pushing northward, sinking many of the resort cities;

    d) the New Madrid Adjustment, which will rip the US in two, starting from the St. Lawrence Seaway and ripping west-south-west into the Black Hills of South Dakota

    (the path includes where the Minneapolis bridge collapsed, by the way; that was no “crumbling infrastructure” problem),

    and of course the mega-quake(s) themselves centered on the Mississippi River right in the heart of the US.

    Then, just this past weekend, because it wasn’t clear which of these events would occur in what sequence, we got some clarity:

    The sequence of events is, thus:

    a tipping Indo-Australia Plate with Indonesia sinking,

    a folding Pacific allowing S America to roll,

    a tearing of the south Atlantic Rift allowing Africa to roll and the floor of the Mediterranean to drop,

    great quakes in Japan followed by the New Madrid adjustment,

    which is followed almost instantly by the tearing of the north Atlantic Rift with consequent European tsunami.”

    So apparently each one of these items is considered a “7 out of 10” event;

    once the complete scenario plays out, we’re supposedly in for a short lull before the “8 of 10” commences, which is to be characterized by continuous plate movements, meaning constant earthquakes.

    By then, most people who survive the “7” events will either be going insane or hunkered down where they intend to ride out the shift.

    The “9 out of 10” are the last weeks, including the famous “3 days of darkness”, sunrise west, and rotation stoppage, culminating in the “10”.

    Hope that helps articulate what the “7 of 10” means.

    God I hope none of this will happen, but to insist it won’t is only whistlin’ Dixie past the graveyard.

    At least the first of the “7 of 10 events” will allegedly happen before the end of the year, after which we can spend time preparing instead of debating whether it will even happen or not.

    The Mediterranean is shown, while Africa rolls somewhat.

    This opens up the southern Mediterranean above Algeria such that the Mediterranean floor there is a crumble, not supported.

    Then over to India where the western side of India sinks significantly, the plate tipping sideways a bit, raising eastern India during this process.

    Then islands in Indonesia sink, the plate supporting them sinking more than the surrounding area.

    Over to S America the Andes are shown doing mountain building, while some islands in the Caribbean are sinking, their plate pushed under as S America rolls.

    Southeastern US is pulled down slightly, while the land just to the west of the Mississippi drops slightly.

    As the Atlantic rips open, this causes water adjustments.

    First water rushes from elsewhere to fill the void, then piles up, clashing in the middle, so that a tide rushes toward Europe, assaulting the lowlands there.

    There will be a pole shift.

    When?

    Will it happen suddenly or more gradually so more are spared?

    Now would be a good time to pray for mercy.

    The Shifting of the Earth’s Poles Has Begun as Predicted by Edgar Cayce in 1936

    http://www.edgarcayce.org/are/ancient_mysteries.aspx?id=2071

    “Question: What great change or the beginning of what change, if any, is to take place in the earth in the year 2,000 to 2,001 A.D.?

    Answer: When there is a shifting of the poles; or a new cycle begins.”

    (826-8 given August 11, 1936)

    NOVA, the PBS television program, reported startling discoveries about our planet’s electromagnetic poles and fields.

    The program was titled “Magnetic Storm” and was written and produced by David Sington.

    The reason this is of interest to us is that Edgar Cayce predicted that the beginning of the New Age would coincide with the beginning of a pole shift.

    In this NOVA show, scientists explained: “2,000 miles beneath our feet is the Earth’s molten core.

    Here a vast ocean of liquid iron generates an invisible force, the Earth’s magnetic field. It’s what makes our compasses point north.

    But it does a lot more: it helps to keep the Earth a living planet.

    Our neighbors, Venus and Mars, have only weak magnetic fields, which means they’re unprotected from the deadly radiation sweeping through the solar system.

    The Earth, on the other hand, exists within a vast magnetic cocoon, a force-field that for billions of years has sheltered us on our journey through space.”

    Now scientists have made a startling discovery: it seems there’s a storm brewing deep within the Earth, a storm that is weakening our vital magnetic shield.

    Peter Olson at Johns Hopkins University explained that “the Earth’s magnetic field has been our protector for millennia, and now, it appears, it’s about to go away.”

    In reading 826-1, Cayce indicated that the pole shift would become apparent in 2000 to 2001.

    The NOVA show revealed that the shift has indeed begun in the South Atlantic Ocean region, between Africa and South America.

    Here the north-south polarity is fluctuating back and forth, weakening the shield against solar radiation.

    During the pole shift process, the planet’s electromagnetic shield will no longer channel the solar winds to our current poles, where few people live.

    The Northern and Southern lights are a result of radiation moving to the poles.

    Since radiation causes many problems, the weakening of the shield is a concern.

    A weak magnetic shield also means that the Northern and Southern lights will be seen all around the planet, even along the equator.

    It may be a beautiful, wondrous, visionary time for Earth but not a healthy time for many of its inhabitants.

    N.Y.’s Carl Paladino walks back comments on gays

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/yblog_upshot/20101013/el_yblog_upshot/n-y-s-carl-paladino-walks-back-comments-on-gays

    One day after taking to the airwaves to defend his controversial remarks about homosexuality, New York GOP gubernatorial hopeful Carl Paladino issued an apology.

    “I sincerely apologize for any comment that may have offended the Gay and Lesbian Community or their family members,” Paladino said Tuesday in a statement posted on Facebook.

    The Republican tea party candidate said the press had “misinterpreted and misstated” some of his remarks, which he delivered during a meeting Sunday with Hasidic leaders in Brooklyn, N.Y.

    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Carl-Paladino/130595325508

    4) I am in support of civil agreements and equal rights for all citizens.

    5) My position on marriage is based on my personal views. I have the same position on this issue as President Barrack Obama.

    I have previously stated I would support a referendum by New York voters.

    I have proposed Initiative and Referendum so New Yorkers can decide important issues like this.

    (Paladino is saying his position is same as Cheney’s?)

    Ed Gillespie Responds To Democratic Allegations Of Foreign Money In GOP Campaigns

    http://hughhewitt.com/transcripts.aspx?id=d5c500d9-3feb-4648-984e-d0deec63862b

    HH: Now Ed Gillespie, putting on your campaign consultant hat for a second, it’s a little Jon Lovitz-like when they’re sitting around the basement in the DNC and saying that’s it, that’s the ticket, let’s use that blog post, and try and get something going. (LOL!)

    And then Axelrod picks it up and runs with it. But what would you do in their situation?

    They’ve got woefully unprepared candidates, and deeply unpopular leaders and policies. What can they do?

    EG: Well I mean, if they were true to their convictions and their principles, they would try to explain why their policies are best.

    But I think they’ve thrown up their hands on that, because the American people aren’t buying it, because the American people see the impact of their policies in our economy and on their home values, and in their jobs.

    So I’d still try to do that. I mean, in ’06, when we took a pretty big beating at the polls, our candidates were out there saying you know, we think lower taxes, and economic growth is the way to do, and that our policies will result in that.

    We got beat over Iraq, frankly.

    But that’s what you’ve got to do. But they don’t want to engage in the war of ideas, because they’re losing on the war of ideas.

    Brown asked Whitman if she had similarly chastised her campaign chairman, former Gov. Pete Wilson, who used the same term in a criticism of Congress.

    “You know better than that, Jerry; that is a completely different thing,” she said, a retort that drew another rumble of reaction from the crowd.

    “The fact that you are defending your campaign for a slur and a personal attack on me — it’s not befitting of California, it’s not befitting of the office that you are running for.”

    Brown apologized a third time, and said that the utterance “does not represent anything other than things that happen in campaigns.”

    But, he pointedly added, Whitman had received police endorsements after exempting safety officials from key parts of her pension reform plan — which he had refused to do.

    “You got the endorsement of that union, I didn’t, because they said I’d be too tough on unions and public employee pensions, and I’ll take that,” Brown said.

    “I got that endorsement because that union knows that I will be tough on crime,” Whitman replied.

    “And Jerry Brown has a 40-year record of being soft on crime.”

    Why we don’t need a currency war, more Fed easing or additional stimulus

    http://blogs.reuters.com/james-pethokoukis/2010/10/13/why-we-dont-need-a-currency-war-more-fed-easing-or-additional-stimulus/

    “ease” means to “print” as in money

    2. “The Fed must continue to ease.”

    Another Fed-inspired legend is that since the federal funds rate is down to zero, it means the Fed can’t do anything more to stimulate the economy.

    There is some bizarre chatter among Fed officials that based on the Taylor Rule, the federal funds rate should be negative!

    Indeed, FRBNY President William Dudley recently touted the idea that another $500bn in quantitative easing would be equivalent to lowering the federal funds rate by 50-75bps.

    The problem is that near-zero interest rates are depressing the interest income of many Americans.

    Americans may also understand that the only real beneficiary of such low interest rates is the U.S. federal government.

    *** So, the Fed is enabling the fiscal excesses of Congress. ***

    Eventually, such excesses must lead to higher taxes and higher inflation.

    In other words, Washington’s irrationally stimulative monetary and fiscal policies are getting offset by depressed rational expectations.

    ***

    Low rates create more bubbles as investors search for high yields.

    The stage is not being set for strong, sustainable economic growth.

    But the lack of sound fiscal policy is pushing the Fed to act.

    http://www.naztoday.com/news/arizona/2010/10/c-span-gets-ok-to-televise-immigration-hearing/

    PHOENIX (AP) — C-SPAN has won permission to bring up to two video cameras into an appeals court hearing in Gov. Jan Brewer’s appeal of a ruling that put parts of Arizona’s new immigration law on hold.

    The network had asked the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco for permission to televise arguments from both sides at the Nov. 1 hearing.

    The court’s order lets C-SPAN broadcast the hearing live.

    C-SPAN says it intends to broadcast the hearing live.

    Rios dynasty threatened amid tough GOP challenge

    http://azcapitoltimes.com/news/2010/10/13/rios-dynasty-threatened-amid-tough-gop-challenge/

    Steve Smith, a 34-year-old director of a Phoenix-based talent agency, is relying on voter discontent with established politicians in his bid to unseat Sen. Rebecca Rios in Legislative District 23.

    “I think people are tired of long-term incumbents and career politicians to start with on both sides,” he said.

    Political insiders began taking Smith seriously as a candidate after his strong showing in the Aug. 24 primary, when he actually received more votes than Rios – 11,719 compared to her 11,434 – in his party’s two-way contest.

    Endorsements from immigration hawks Sen. Russell Pearce and Maricopa Sheriff Joe Arpaio also have boosted Smith’s profile, giving at least a glimmer of hope to Republicans that the seat may be in play.

    Radical environmental rules are strangling coal workers in West Virginia, where Democratic Senate candidate and Gov. Joe Manchin has filed suit against the Obama Environmental Protection Agency.

    Wyoming GOP Sen. John Barrasso and Utah GOP Rep. Rob Bishop pointed out in a new report on the Democrats’ War on Western Jobs that the White House green agenda is driving mining jobs overseas

    and increasing our reliance on foreign nations for metals and minerals that power our economy and are integral to national defense technology.

    In another high dose of cognitive dissonance, Obama has been pushing solar panels and other green technology pet projects as a way to create jobs and promote energy independence

    — while ignoring the fact that the rare earth metal market needed for such green technology is dominated by … China.

    (Fascinating, but I’m all for solar panels.)

    History may be kind to much-hated TARP

    http://www.nashuatelegraph.com/opinioneditorials/878268-263/history-may-be-kind-to-much-hated-tarp.html

    In conjunction with the formal expiration of the two-year program, the U.S. Treasury Department announced that TARP is projected to cost taxpayers no more than $50 billion, considerably less than the $356 billion estimate put out by the Congressional Budget Office in March 2009.

    TARP money invested in troubled banks is expected to yield $16 billion in profits, according to treasury officials, while taxpayers reaped a 23 percent return on the $10 billion it provided to Goldman Sachs Group Inc.

    “If the government could make 20 percent on everything we put money into,” Gregg told a Bloomberg News reporter, “we wouldn’t have a deficit.”

    Fifty billion dollars, of course, is still quite a bit of money.

    It‘s not like we’re talking about spare change found under an old sofa cushion.

    But when the history of TARP is finally written, $50 billion could turn out to be a relatively small price to pay to prevent what could have been the second Great Depression in some 70 years.

    (I am certainly no expert, but Senator Gregg is.)

    Although Richard Chamberlain recorded the first version, the tune was also recorded as a demo by Dionne Warwick in 1963 and re-recorded with a Burt Bacharach arrangement for her 1964 album Make Way for Dionne Warwick, and was released as the B-side of her 1965 single “Here I Am.”

    Bacharach released his own version in 1968.

    But the version recorded by The Carpenters is the most well known, which became a big hit in 1970.

    Make Way for Dionne Warwick, the third album by American singer Dionne Warwick, was released in late 1964.

    It was recorded at Bell Sound Studios in New York City with producers Burt Bacharach and Hal David, and was released by Scepter Records.

    The album was Warwick’s first LP to chart, reaching #65 on the Billboard Top 200 and #10 on the Billboard Black Albums chart.

    New York State alone has $200 billion in unfunded retiree health liabilities, according to a report out this week from the Empire Center, a New York think tank.

    “The daunting size of the health care obligation raises the possibility that

    *** localities will be forced at some point to choose between paying their retirees’ medical costs and paying the investors who hold their bonds ***

    today’s NYT says.

    Municipal bonds are considered super-safe; it would be a huge deal if lots of cities started defaulting on them in order to pay retiree benefits.

    But the possibility is being batted around more and more.
