IF THEY CAN ENACT AUSTERITY MEASURE, THEN WE CAN, TOO.
Portugal's minority government and main opposition party agreed Saturday on a package of austerity measures aimed at steering the country out of a financial crisis that has contributed to investor unease about the soundness of the euro currency.
Portugal, like other eurozone countries Greece, Ireland and Spain, needs to slash a high debt load that is threatening to ruin its economy and could further weaken prospects for a European economic recovery.
The center-left Socialist government drew up plans to hike taxes and curb spending next year but didn't have enough votes in Parliament to get approval for its proposals.
Saturday's deal with the center-right Social Democratic Party ensured the plan will be enacted after a parliamentary vote next week on the government's spending plans for 2011.
The Social Democrats said in a statement that the deal "mitigated the most negative consequences" of the 2011 state budget. The government, it said, agreed to review major public works projects planned to be carried out in partnership with private companies. Those projects would drive up the national debt, it said.
Portugal is the latest of the 16 nations using the euro currency to adopt austerity measures amid continentwide economic woes.
PRIME MINISTER ERDOGAN PUTS TURKEY'S ISLAMIST AND ANTI-WEST CARDS ON THE TABLE: CALLS ISRAEL TURKEY'S CENTRAL THREAT
The Turkish National Security Council approved a few days ago significant changes in a document which contains threats against Turkey claiming that Israel is now a major threat to the country, Turkish media reported Saturday.
Israel was redefined as a "major threat" in the document called "The Red Book."
This is the first time that Turkey has defined Israel's actions in the Middle East as a threat towards it.
The document also stated that Israel's actions may cause countries in the region to begin an "arms race."
At the same time the Council decided to remove Syria, Bulgaria, Georgia and Armenia from the list of countries that pose a threat to Turkey.
Iran, which was previously a major threat to Ankara was also removed from the list of countries.
THIS PUTS TURKEY SQUARELY ON THE SIDE OF IRAN AND AGAINST ISRAEL - AMERICA'S BEST ALLY.
BY SIDING WITH IRAN AND AGAINST ISRAEL, IT PROVES - ONCE AGAIN - THAT TURKEY DOESN'T BELONG IN NATO.
ALLOWING TURKEY - WHO SHOULD NO LONGER BE TRUSTED WITH ANY MILITARY INFORMATION OF NATO'S OR THE USA'S - TO REMAIN IN NATO AND REMAIN IN THE COALITION IN AFGHANISTAN THREATENS NATO FORCES EVERYWHERE.
BESIDES GEERT WILDERS, IS THERE A POLITICIAN ANYWHERE WITH THE COURAGE TO SAY AND DO WHAT MUST BE DONE!?
TO DATE IN EUROPE, SARKOZY AND MERKEL COME CLOSEST, BUT THEY'VE NOT GONE FAR ENOUGH.
PERHAPS THIS WILL BE THE STRAW TO BREAK THE CAMEL'S BACK?
I HOPE SO.
A COUPLA DOZEN PACKAGES GET SENT FROM JIHADO-THUG DOMINATED YEMEN TO SYNAGOGUES IN CHICAGO AND I'M SUPPOSED TO BE SHOCKED THEY TURN OUT TO BE BOMBS?
THEY'RE STILL LOOKING FOR A FEW DOZEN MORE.
YEMEN IS WHERE THE COLE GOT BOMBED.
WE SHOULD HAVE RETURNED IT TO DUST AND ASHES THEN.
BECK'S RALLY WAS GREAT AND ITS VALUES GOOD. BY COUNTERING BECK, THESE LEFTIST COMEDIANS PROVE THAT THEY ARE SMALL AND BAD.
- NOTHING GOOD CAN COME FROM THEIR SARCASM, CYNICISM AND ELITISM.
- SARCASM, CYNICISM AND ELITISM CANNOT CREATE MORE BUSINESSES OR JOBS, NOR CAN IT DEFEND US FROM GLOBAL JIHAD OR CREEPING JIHAD.
IMAGINE THE NATION IS A CAR IN A DITCH:
THESE LEFT-WING ICONS --- WITH THEIR SARCASM, THEIR CYNICISM AND THEIR ELITISM --- ARE REALLY THE TYPE OF GUYS WHO - SEEING THE CAR IN A DITCH - STAND ON THE SIDE, SIP THEIR SLURPEES - AND CRACK JOKES, AS THEY WATCH US TEA PARTIERS WHO ARE TRULY THE ONES TRYING TO GET THE CAR OUT OF THE DITCH.

THERE'S ONE GOOD THING I'VE NOTICED ABOUT CRITICIZING PELOSI - VERSUS CRITICIZING OBAMA:
WHEN YOU ATTACK ANYTHING PELOSI YOU'RE NEVER ACCUSED OF BEING A SEXIST, BUT IF YOU ATTACK OBAMA, THEN YOU'RE ACCUSED OF BEING A RACIST.
WHY IS THAT?
If flights, shipments, cellphone and internet connectedness were shut down, we'd be much safer.
Then we need to deal with the colonizing vermin who have sneaked in under the gates.

ROUND UP HERE.
THIS BOGUS POLL WAS ISSUED TO MAKE ANY IMPENDING THEFT BY MURKOWSKI SEEM LESS OUTRAGEOUS.
THERE'S ONLY ONE WAY TO STOP THEM: GOTV!
Hamas official reportedly insists that Islamic tradition be respected, accuses Europe of promoting "promiscuity and political hypocrisy."ZAHAR IS WRONG ABOUT THIS:
The West has no right to tell Hamas how to govern the Gaza Strip, Mahmoud Zahar, a senior leader from the Islamist group told Reuters in an interview published Thursday.
Zahar went on to say that Islamic traditions should be respected, and charged that Europe "promotes promiscuity and political hypocrisy," according to the Reuters report. "We have the right to control our life according to our religion, not according to your religion. You have no religion. You are secular," he was quoted as saying.
THE WEST DOES HAVE A RIGHT - BECAUSE WITHOUT FINANCIAL SUPPORT FROM THE WEST --- THE EU, THE UN, AND OTHERS - HAMAS AND GAZA WOULD TRULY BE IN A HUMANITARIAN CRISIS.
BUT WHAT ZAHAR SAYS REALLY PROVES THAT THE WEST SHOULDN'T BE SENDING A DIME TO GAZA.
THE WEST SHOULD LET THESE JIHAD-THUGS ROT TO DEATH! THE GAZA FLOTILLAS - MANNED BY LEFTISTS FROM THE WEST - ARE EVIL BECAUSE THEY SERVE HAMAS AND HAMAS IS EVIL.
BUT EUROPE WON'T STOP APPEASING HAMAS FOR THE PRECISE REASON ZAHAR OFFERS: EUROPE IS PROMISCUOUS AND HYPOCRITICAL AND SECULAR.
IOW: EUROPE IS DOMINATED BY THE POSTMODERN LEFT.
WITHOUT THEIR FIFTH COLUMN IN THE WEST, GLOBAL JIHAD WOULD COLLAPSE.
WHICH IS WHY I HAVE LONG ARGUED THAT WE NEED TO FIRST DEFEAT LEFTISM IF WE EVER EXPECT TO DEFEAT JIHADISM.
THE JIHADISTS NEED THE WEST'S MONEY AND TECHNOLOGY AND TRADE. THEY NEED ACCESS TO OUR CIVILIZATION TO DESTROY IT.
WE NEED TO CUT THEM OFF. QUARANTINE THEM - AND THEIR FINANCIAL BACKERS WHO GAIN WEALTH FROM THE WEST - LIKE THE SAUDIS.
THEN WE STARVE THE JIHADIS. SMOKE THEM OUT OF THEIR CAVES AND KILL THEM. ALL.
THAT'S WHEN WE SHALL ENJOY PEACE.
FIRST STRENGTH, THEN VICTORY. THEN PEACE.
The most common name given to baby boys born in England in 2009 was none other than Mohammed, in its various forms.Regardless of the spelling - if the primary origin of the name is the same, that tells all we need to know, that something is wrong over there.
The name Mohammed is spelled 12 different ways. The most popular spellings were Mohammed and Mohammad, which were the given names of 3,300 and 2,162 babies, respectively. Other spellings include Muhammed, Mohamed, Mahamed, and even Mohmmed. In total, the name was given to 7,549 British baby boys in 2009 - 185 more than were named Oliver.
She's for risky new oil drilling that could threaten our jobs....Really? It's oil drilling that is destroying California's economy? Not the state's draconian restrictions on oil drilling?
Fiorina couldn't ask for better publicity. She'll actually uncork our energy resources? Lowering gas prices and bringing jobs to the state? Some attack ad:
All of Boxer's attacks are like this: assuming that voters are too stupid to see how ass-backwards her insinuations are. The first line of the above ad says:
She's against banning assault weapons, and that's reckless and dangerous...What a hoot. She actually thinks pushing gun control is going to win her votes. Increased gun control polls terribly even in California, and in these hard times, not letting people defend themselves can only grow less popular. With every level of government going broke, people are smart enough to know that they will face a greater need to take care of themselves.
That won't jar California's legions of the politically correct, but calling oil drilling a job killer could be a real preference cascade initiator. Even Boxer's leftist base has to do a double-take, and anyone at all middle of the road will certainly revolt at the sheer cognitive dissonance of it, setting them up to question Boxer's other talking points as well.
Fiorina want's to "slash Social Security" and other government entitlements? Maybe not such a bad idea, when faced with trillion dollar deficits. "She'd make abortion a crime"? It is doubtful anyone could actually believe that, even if they didn't know that Fiorina's "pro-life" stance explicitly rejects imposing her abortion beliefs on others.
Fiorina is "Endorsed by Sarah Palin." Wait a minute. How can this be an appeal to the middle, when the Tea Party has much higher positives than either Democrats or Republicans?
I get it. It's not that Boxer thinks other people are that stupid. This is an honest expression of Boxer's own stupidity, as she tries to rally other like-minded (stupid) people. She is throwing what she regards as red-meat to her leftist base, and is too clueless to grasp that her logic-free attacks will alienate the middle.
Blaming Fiorina for jobs lost to the Democrats' anti-business climate
My favorite Boxer ad is her recounting of Hewlett-Packard's California job losses during Fiorina's ten year stint as HP's CEO (half the length of Boxer's tenure as senator from a state where Democrats have dominated the state legislature forever):
Again, Boxer just assumes that viewers are too stupid to grasp the obvious, even as she rubs their noses in it. As the litany of HP's California job losses is recounted the listener is forced to wonder why. What was the context? Why wasn't it good business to keep jobs here? Isn't someone else a part of this story too? Then with perfect timing, "I'm Barbara Boxer, and I approve this message." Hilarious.
It's not like California's anti-business climate is some big secret. It takes the willful blindness of Boxer and her minions not to get it. This and the pretense that oil drilling is a job killer both starkly peg Boxer as a paleo-leftist dinosaur: not just dishonest, but fabulously and sincerely stupid, the absolute last person you'd ever want making decisions for you. Just a brutally incompetent woman. And she puts it neatly on video for all to see. Awesome.

- GOOD. THEY DESERVE TO BE WIPED OUT. WHY?
- THEY FAILED TO GOVERN PROPERLY.
- THERE'S A LESSON FOR ALL POLITICIANS IN THIS: AT A BARE MINIMUM.
- YOU SHOULD READ THE BILLS AND LISTEN TO YOUR CONSTITUENTS BEFORE VOTING ON THEM.
- IF YOU DON'T, THEN YOU WILL BE FIRED.
Today I received a plea for help from the Tawakoni Area TEA Party. They have a Mayor that is out of control and hates the TEA Party too. He has fired 2 long time officers for no other apparent reason than the simple fact that they belong to the local TEA Party chapter.Yes, the story is anecdotal at this point.
West Tawakoni is a small town in East Texas...

FORGET OBAMA-BIDEN IN 2010 - AND OBAMA-CLINTON. THE REAL LIBERAL DREAM TICKET IS JON-STEWART AND AL FRANKEN!
THE BEST POSSIBLE STANDARD BEARERS FOR LIBERALISM TODAY ARE SARCASTIC COMEDIANS JON STEWART AND AL FRANKEN.
THE LEFT SHOULD DUM OBAM AND BIDEN AND OUT THESE TWO LEFTIST CLOWNS ON THE TICKET IN 2012.
SLOGAN: "THE JOKE'S ON YOU!"
SERIOUSLY: JON STEWART IS - ACCORDING TO ONE POLL - THE MOST INFLUENTIAL MAN IN AMERICA - AMAZINGLY BEATING OUT OBAMA AND MICHAEL MOORE AND ALAN GRAYSON.
(MICHAEL MOORE IS TWICE AS FAT AS THE TWO OF THEM COMBINED BUT ONLY HALF AS FUNNY. GRAYSON IS UGLIER AND LESS FUNNY THAN MOORE,)
ALTERNET LISTED AND NUMBERED THE 8 LIES.
I WILL DEBUNK THEM ALL:
1) President Obama tripled the deficit.
ALTERNET: Bush's last budget had a $1.416 trillion deficit. Obama's first budget reduced that to $1.29 trillion.
- BUSH'S BUDGET WAS HIGH; OBAMA'S WAS HIGHER. THE CUMULATIVE DEFICITS PROJECTED BY OBAMA FOR OBAMA'S TERM WILL DOUBLE THAT OF BUSH'S FOR BUSH'S 8 YEARS.
2) President Obama raised taxes, which hurt the economy.WRONG.
ALTERNET: Obama cut taxes. 40% of the "stimulus" was wasted on tax cuts which only create debt, which is why it was so much less effective than it could have been.
- THE OBAMA TAX CUTS AMOUNTED TO ABOUT $8/WEEK FOR THE AVERAGE AMERICAN. BIG EFFIN' DEAL!
3) President Obama bailed out the banks.WRONG.
ALTERNET: While many people conflate the "stimulus" with the bank bailouts, the bank bailouts were requested by President Bush and his Treasury Secretary, former Goldman Sachs CEO Henry Paulson. (Paulson also wanted the bailouts to be "non-reviewable by any court or any agency.") The bailouts passed and began before the 2008 election of President Obama.
- TARP WAS BUSH'S, BUT THE CAR BAILOUT AND THE STUDENT LOAN TAKEOVER AND THE HEALTH INDUSTRY TAKEOVER WERE UNDER OBAMA. IN BILLS WHICH WEREN'T READ, LET ALONE VETTED. THESE ARE THE BILLS WHICH PISS OFF MOST VOTERS.
4) The stimulus didn't work.WRONG.
ALTERNET: The stimulus worked, but was not enough. In fact, according to the Congressional Budget Office, the stimulus raised employment by between 1.4 million and 3.3 million jobs.
- OBAMA PROMISED UNEMPLOYMENT WOULD STAY BELOW 8.9% - AND IT DIDN'T; 6OMINUTES SAYS IT'S 17% - AND 22% IN CALIFORNIA.
- A QUCIKER LESS CORRUPTIBLE WAY TO IMMEDIATELY INCREASE AGGREGATE SPENDING WOULD'VE BEEN A PAYROLL TAX HOLIDAY.
5) Businesses will hire if they get tax cuts.WRONG.
ALTERNET: A business hires the right number of employees to meet demand. Having extra cash does not cause a business to hire, but a business that has a demand for what it does will find the money to hire. Businesses want customers, not tax cuts.
- BUSINESSES WILL NOT HIRE IF THEY ARE UNCERTAIN WHAT THE COSTS WILL BE OR WHAT THEIR TAXES WILL BE OR HOW GOOD THE ECONOMY WILL BE; BUSINESS PEOPLE NEED CERTAINTY AND OPTIMISM. OBAMA IS DIMINSIHED BOTH.
6) Health care reform costs $1 trillion.WRONG:
ALTERNET: The health care reform reduces government deficits by $138 billion.
- BWAHAHAHAHAHA! SURE: WE COVER 45 MILLION MORE PEOPLE AND SAVE MONEY; THAT'S A LAUGHER!
7) Social Security is a Ponzi scheme, is "going broke," people live longer, fewer workers per retiree, etc.WRONG:
ALTERNET: Social Security has run a surplus since it began, has a trust fund in the trillions, is completely sound for at least 25 more years and cannot legally borrow so cannot contribute to the deficit (compare that to the military budget!) Life expectancy is only longer because fewer babies die; people who reach 65 live about the same number of years as they used to.
- BY LEGAL DEFINITION OF PONZI SCHEME, SOCIAL SECURITY IS A PONZI SCHEME.
- FRANCE RAISED THE RETIREMENT AGE THERE FOR THE SAME REASON WE MUST DO SO HERE - AND IT AIN'T BECAUSE BABIES ARE LIVING; IT'S BECAUSE PEOPLE ON PENSIONS ARE LIVING LONGER. SHEESH.
8) Government spending takes money out of the economy.WRONG:
ALTERNET: Government is We, the People and the money it spends is on We, the People. Many people do not know that it is government that builds the roads, airports, ports, courts, schools and other things that are the soil in which business thrives. Many people think that all government spending is on "welfare" and "foreign aid" when that is only a small part of the government's budget.
GOVERNMENT SPENDING RETARDS GROWTH.
IT'S BEEN STUDIED; IT'S A FACT.
TAXES RETARD GROWTH TOO - PROVEN BY CHRISTINE ROMER, OBAMA'S FORMER CHAIRPERSON OF THE COUNCIL OF ECONOMIC ADVISER'S.
THIS ALTERNET POST PROVES AN OLD SAYING OF REAGAN'S:
IT'S NOT THAT LIBERALS DON'T KNOW ANYTHING.
IT'S THAT EVERYTHING THEY KNOW IS WRONG.
- CUTTING SPENDING AND TAXES WILL SPUR GROWTH, AND GROWTH WILL HELP THE POOR AND THE WORKING CLASS AND THE HOUSING MARKET AND THEREBY REDUCE THE DEFICIT.
- IT WORKED IN GERMANY. IT'S WORKING IN BRITAIN.
- WE NEED TO DO THIS HERE AND WE NEED DO DO IT ASAP.
- IT JUST TAKES POLITICAL WILL.
- CHRIS CHRISTIE IS DOING IT IN NEW JERSEY.
- WE NEED IT IN DC.
- YOU CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN: VOTE GOP THIS NOVEMBER.
- THE USSR WOULD BE THE RICHEST NATION ON EARTH,
- FLORIDIANS WOULD RISK THEIR LIVES TO SWIM TO CUBA,
- MERKEL WOULD BE THE PREMIER OF EAST GERMANY,
- NORTH KOREA WOULD BUILD A WALL TO KEEP SOUTH KOREANS OUT.

- THUS, ANOTHER AGW WARNING BITES THE DUST.
- SEA LEVELS AREN'T RISING.
- HURRICANES ARE NOT MORE POWERFUL OR MORE FREQUENT.
FIDDLER ON THE ROOF.
RIP MR. STEIN.
IN HIS HONOR:
(ENGLISH TRANS OF ARTICLE.)
A bomb exploded at the gate of a Sufi shrine in Pakistan's eastern city of Pak Pattan on Monday, killing at least four people, police said.
The explosive was planted on a motorcycle, city police chief Mohammad Kashif told Reuters by telephone. The attack was the latest in the heartland province of Punjab.
"According to initial reports, two men came on the motorcycle and parked it near the gate just minutes before the blast," he said, adding three people were also wounded in the explosion.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the latest attack but Taliban militants have in the past attacked Sufi shrines.
SUFIS ARE MUSLIMS. THIS DOESN'T STOP THE TALIBAN FROM MURDERING THEM AND DESTROYING THEIR SHRINES.
MARTY PERETZ WAS RIGHT ABOUT MUSLIMS: THEY HAVE KILLED MORE MUSLIMS THAN JEWS AND CHRISTIANS COMBINED.
MUSLIM LIFE IS CHEAP FOR SOME MUSLIMS.
BTW: MOST OF THE CIVILIANS KILLED THE LAST 7 YEARS IN IRAQ WERE KILLED BY MUSLIMS, NOT THE USA.
IF THEY CAN DO THIS TO THEIR FELLOW MUSLIMS, HOW CAN WE BRING THEM INTO A DEMOCRATIC AFGHAN GOVERNMENT!?
THE TALIBAN NEED TO BE ERADICATED USING ALL NECESSARY FORCE.
OBAMA DOESN'T HAVE THE BALLS TO DO WHAT MUST BE DONE - AND HE'S TEMPERAMENTALLY DISINCLINED TO CONFRONT MUSLIMS; HE MIGHT AS WELL BE A CRYPTO-MUSLIM.

Tony Blair’s sister-in-law has converted to Islam after having a ‘holy experience’ in Iran.Oh, it's not that hard to guess. She seems to be the exact kind of person who's willing to change everything at the flick of a switch. Since she so often wears a hijab now, does it make much difference whether she wears a burka? They're so similar, it makes little difference. And no wine, not even some delicious grape juice? Sigh. Here we go with another Brit who's practically willing to sensationalize her whole experience, and signal just how stupid people of her standing really are.
Broadcaster and journalist Lauren Booth, 43 – Cherie Blair’s half-sister – said she now wears a hijab head covering whenever she leaves her home, prays five times a day and visits her local mosque ‘when I can’.
She decided to become a Muslim six weeks ago after visiting the shrine of Fatima al-Masumeh in the city of Qom.
‘It was a Tuesday evening and I sat down and felt this shot of spiritual morphine, just absolute bliss and joy,’ she told The Mail on Sunday.
When she returned to Britain, she decided to convert immediately.
‘Now I don’t eat pork and I read the Koran every day. I’m on page 60. I also haven’t had a drink in 45 days, the longest period in 25 years,’ she said.
‘The strange thing is that since I decided to convert I haven’t wanted to touch alcohol, and I was someone who craved a glass of wine or two at the end of a day.’
Refusing to discount the possibility that she might wear a burka, she said: ‘Who knows where my spiritual journey will take me?’
Update: Booth was also part of the "Free Gaza" boat gang that sailed there 2 years ago and even bought Snickers chocolate bars at a Gazan food store.
Democrats get 100% of the fraudulent voters!
I think the Democrats also get 110% of the dead voters - YES: 110%: many dead voters vote more than twice!
And the Democrat get 100% of the convicts votes, too.
This is how they "elected" LEFTIST COMEDIAN Franken.
Watch Philly and Madison and Chicago and other key House races go Democrat with EXTRA votes cast fraudulently and with ABSENTEE MILITARY ballots never counted.
If they dare do it to the degree necessary to hold on to the House, then there will be an ARMED uprising in the USA much more vehement than the rebellion by the Iranian people After Ahmadinejad stole his last election.
THINK ABOUT THAT DEMOCRATS: DO YOU DARE RISK INCITING AN ARMED TEA PARTY?
...Portland residents will vote Nov. 2 on a proposal to give legal residents who are not U.S. citizens the right to vote in local elections, joining places like San Francisco and Chicago that have already loosened the rules or are considering it....Back in 2009, Atlas Shrugs posted the following:
Opponents of the measure say immigrants already have an avenue to cast ballots — by becoming citizens. Allowing noncitizens to vote dilutes the meaning of citizenship, they say, adding that it could lead to fraud and unfairly sway elections....
Any shot for Americans to take back this country from the hard left in 2010/2012 is looking increasingly dim ....And we have elections in less than two weeks.
Obama Justice Department Decision Will Allow Non-Citizens to Register to Vote in Georgia
Decision Bars Georgia From Continuing Voter Verification Process
Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel issued the following statement following the U.S. Department of Justice’s denial of preclearance of Georgia’s voter verification processAtlanta - “The decision by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to deny preclearance of Georgia’s already implemented citizenship verification process shows a shocking disregard for the integrity of our elections. With this decision, DOJ has now barred Georgia from continuing the citizenship verification program that DOJ lawyers helped to craft. DOJ’s decision also nullifies the orders of two federal courts directing Georgia to implement the procedure for the 2008 general election. The decision comes seven months after Georgia requested an expedited review of the preclearance submission.
“DOJ has thrown open the door for activist organizations such as ACORN to register non-citizens to vote in Georgia’s elections, and the state has no ability to verify an applicant’s citizenship status or whether the individual even exists. DOJ completely disregarded Georgia’s obvious and direct interest in preventing non-citizens from voting...
Just how corrupted is our election process?
- SHE TRIED TO TURN IT INTO AN ANTI-OBAMA JOKE, BUT IT WAS AWFUL.
- SOMEONE TELL HER TO STOP.
- I LOVE HER; THIS WAS BENEATH HER AND NOT SOMETHING A SERIOUS POLITICAL LEADER SHOULD EVER DO.
