UH-OH: CHINA SHAKES UP BANKING AND FINANCIAL LEADERSHIP

REARRANGING THE CHAIRS ON THE DECK OF THE TITANIC:
China reshuffled the leadership of three of its financial regulatory agencies on Saturday, one of the first steps in what is expected to be a major leadership change at the top of the Communist Party next year.

With a new generation of leaders set to take control of the country in 2012, the Communist Party was widely expected to replace its top banking and financial regulators as several of them neared retirement age.

Several of those changes, which were announced Saturday, come at a time of strong economic growth in China but continuing worries about soaring inflation, a depressed stock market and concerns that heavy lending by China’s biggest banks following the 2008 financial crisis is likely to lead to a huge number of nonperforming loans over the next three to five years.

I THINK THE LAST ITEM IS REAL REASON FOR THE SHAKEUP - AND THE REASON CHINA CAN'T PLAY A BIG ROLE IN BAILING OUT EUROPE.

HMM: CAIN CUTTING APPEARANCES TO AVOID ... SAYING... STUPID CRAP

WASH POST:

Cain, however, said he plans to “dial back” his campaign and media appearances in order to avoid missteps. Since climbing in the polls, he has had a series of fumbles, forcing him to clarify comments on abortion, immigration and terrorism suspects.

Cain has chalked up the mistakes to a grueling campaign schedule jammed with media interviews. Such itineraries are standard fare on the presidential campaign trail and it is unclear how aggressively he will restrict his schedule.

HMMM... MAYBE HE DOESN'T HAVE WHAT IT TAKES?

MAYBE IT'S HIS AGE, OR LACK OF CAMPAIGN EXPERIENCE - OR THAT HE NEEDS TIME TO STUDY.

OR IS IT HIS HEALTH?

WE HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW.

IF HE'S NOT ABLE TO AVOID STUMBLES BECAUSE OF POOR STAMINA, THEN MAYBE HE WOULDN'T MAKE SUCH A GOOD POTUS.

"A FAIR SHARE OF THE NATION'S WEALTH" - THE LIE AT THE CORE OF THE SOCIALIST ARGUMENT

ACCORDING TO THE CBO, EVERYBODY GOT RICHER FROM 1979 TO 2007.

BUT LEFTISTS HAVE ARGUED THAT THE RICH GOT A BIGGER "SHARE OF THE NATION'S WEALTH" - AS IF THE PIE SHOULD BE SLICED ACCORDING TO SOME ABSTRACT NOTION OF FAIRNESS AND NOT BASED ON WHAT REAL PERSONS ACTUALLY EARNED.

LEFTISTS THINK THAT THIS ABSTRACT NOTION OF RELATIVE INCOME QUALITY IS MORE FAIR, BUT IT ISN'T.

IT IS FUNDAMENTALLY UNFAIR BECAUSE IT SUBSTITUTES DISTRIBUTION BASED ON INCOME EARNED WITH A DISTRIBUTION THAT DISREGARDS WHAT PEOPLE ACTUALLY EARN.

LEFTISTS MISTAKENLY BELIEVE THAT THIRD PARTIES UNINVOLVED IN THE TRANSACTIONS THAT YIELD INCOME WOULD SOMEHOW ALWAYS BETTER KNOW HOW MUCH INCOME SHOULD BE YIELDED AND WHO SHOULD GET WHAT PORTION OF IT.

THE PEOPLE IN THE TRANSACTION KNOW BEST. IOW: THE MARKET KNOWS BEST.

AND ANOTHER THING: THIS NOTION OF "THE NATION'S WEALTH" IS A BOGUS CONSTRUCT.

IT'S A PREMEDITATED CONSTRUCTION INTENDED TO MAKE IT SEEM LIKE THE WEALTH BELONGS TO THE AGGREGATE BEFORE IT BELONGS TO THE ACTUAL PERSONS WHO ACTUALLY MADE IT.

UPDATED - SCROLL DOWN - IDF REPRISAL KILLS 5 ISLAMO-TERRORISTS IN GAZA

Israel's air force bombed an Islamic Jihad camp in the southern Gaza Strip on Saturday, killing a commander of the Palestinian faction and four of its munitions experts, officials on both sides said.

The strike in Rafah, a town in Gaza's border with Egypt, followed a Palestinian cross-border rocket launch this week which the Israelis blamed on Islamic Jihad. That attack caused no casualties but a rocket landed deep enough to set off sirens on the outskirts of Tel Aviv.

THIS IS EXACTLY HOW TERRORISTS SHOULD BE TREATED.

WE MUSTN'T EVER NEGOTIATE WITH THEM - AS OBAMA AND HILLARY WANT. (SEE BELOW.)

UPDATE: BREAKING: ISLAMOTERRORISTS LAUNCH 20 ROCKETS FROM GAZASTAN INTO ISRAEL. EXTENSIVE DAMAGE; ONE INJURED...

STRIKE BACK, BIBI!

UPDATE #2:

STRIKE BACK, BIBI!

UPDATE #3: 7PM:
The IDF confirmed striking 4 terror targets in Gaza between 9 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Saturday night.

The targets included a terror cell in southern Gaza planning to fire a projectile, a terrorist planning a rocket strike, and two rocket launch sites in northern Gaza.

An additional terrorist in southern Gaza planning a rocket attack was also struck from the air on Saturday night.

Additionally, a cell in northern Gaza was also hit by the Air Force.

PROOF OBAMA IS A LOUSY LEADER: HIS NUMBERS HAVE STEADILY DECLINED

Real leaders gain in popularity as times get tougher.

Churchill. FDR. Rudy after 9/11.

Obama's have steadily gone down.

And real leaders don't blame others or seek to divide their team when things get tough.

They untie their team and inspire their team.

Obama is just awful, The worst. Pitiful.





























EUROPE: OWNED BY CHINA AND COWED BY ISLAM

THE ECONOMY MIGHT SOON BE CONTROLLED BY CHINA:
A day after European leaders unveiled their latest plan to save the euro, top officials opened talks with China in an effort to lure tens of billions of dollars in additional cash, giving China perhaps its biggest opportunity yet to exercise financial clout in the Western world.

China is expected to demand significant concessions, including financial guarantees and limits on what Beijing sees as discriminatory trade policies, in exchange for any investment in Europe’s emergency stability fund. The head of the rescue fund, Klaus Regling, got a cautious reply from Chinese officials Friday during a visit to Beijing, where he said he did not expect to reach an investment deal with China anytime soon.

NEBULA AS RORSCHACH TEST


The Pacman nebula is a giant cloud of dust and gas located approximately 9,200 light-years away within our own Milky Way galaxy. It's official name is NGC 281, but the nebula earned a more popular nickname because of its resemblance to the character from the hugely popular Pac-Man video game that was first released in 1980.

When the nebula is viewed through visible-light telescopes, the large star-forming cloud appears to be chomping its way through the cosmos, NASA scientists said in a statement.

When seen in infrared light, however, the nebula takes on a different appearance, with a large set of lower teeth giving it a much more threatening look. The new image was taken by NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, or WISE, a sky-mapping observatory before it completed its mission in February 2011.

In the photo, the Pacman nebula's teeth are made up of pillars where new stars may be forming.
I GUESS THIS IS RORSCHACH TEST OF SORTS.

ROMNEY IN DEADHEAT WITH OBAMA IN MAINE!!!!!!

ROMNEY GETS 18% MORE THAN MCCAIN DID IN MAINE IN 2008.

AS MAINE GOES, SO GOES THE NATION.

ROMNEY COULD SWEEP 50 STATES - AND HIS COATTAILS COULD GIVE THE GOP AND FILIBUSTER PROOF SENATE.

PREDICTION: THIRD PARTY AND FOURTH PARTY CANDIDATES WILL RUN IN ALL BATTLEGROUND STATES - TO HELP OBAMA

THE ONLY WAY OBAMA CAN WIN IS IF:
(A) 1-2% OF CONSERVATIVES STAY HOME IF THEY DON'T LIKE THE TICKET,

AND (B), IF THERE'S A RIGHT-OF-CENTER THIRD PARTY CANDIDATE TO SIPHON OFF VOTES FROM THE GOP BASE...

AND (C) IF THERE'S A CENTRIST-TYPE CANDIDATE TO SIPHON OFF VOTES FROM THE INDEPENDENTS.

SO I LOOK FOR THE MSM TO START PLAYING UP THE IDEA THAT MITT INEVITABLY THEN - ONCE HE GETS THE NOMINATION - THAT HE IS VERY LIBERAL.

AND I EXPECT RON PAUL TO RUN ON A THIRD PARTY LINE AND GET A LOT OF MSM ATTENTION.

AND I EXPECT HUNTSMAN AND/OR BLOOMBERG TO RUN ON A CENTRIST LINE.

THERE IS NO OTHER WAY OBAMA CAN WIN. (HE MAY ALSO STILL NEED A CHITLOAD OF VOTER FRAUD.)

ACTUALLY, THE BEST HOPE OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY AND THE LEFT IS IF OBAMA ANNOUNCES HE WONT SEEK A SECOND TERM.

NYTIMES: OBAMA GETTING BIG MONEY FROM LOBBYISTS AND LYING ABOUT IT

NYTIMES:
Despite a pledge not to take money from lobbyists, President Obama has relied on prominent supporters who are active in the lobbying industry to raise millions of dollars for his re-election bid.

At least 15 of Mr. Obama’s “bundlers” — supporters who contribute their own money to his campaign and solicit it from others — are involved in lobbying for Washington consulting shops or private companies. They have raised more than $5 million so far for the campaign.

Because the bundlers are not registered as lobbyists with the Senate, the Obama campaign has managed to avoid running afoul of its self-imposed ban on taking money from lobbyists.

But registered or not, the bundlers are in many ways indistinguishable from people who fit the technical definition of a lobbyist.
OBAMA IS A LIAR AND A SCOUNDREL AND STOOGE FOR THE BREZHNEV-LIKE CHICAGO MACHINE ALLIANCE WITH THE ALINSKYITE/BILL AYERS/CODE PINK SOCIALISTS.

ALL OBAMA AND HIS COMRADES HAVE BEEN DOING THE LAST 3 YEARS IS LINING THEIR POCKETS AND "TRANSFORMING" AMERICA INTO A EURO-SOCIALIST STATE.

IF OBAMA AND HIS CADRE ARE GIVEN ANOTHER TERM, THEN WE MAY VERY WELL PASS A POINT OF NO RETURN.

RAPE EPIDEMIC IN OSLO - AND IT'S ALL MALE MUSLIM RAPISTS

Back in May it was reported that every rape assault in the city of Oslo in the last five years had been committed by a person with a “non-Western” background – a Norwegian euphemism for Muslim. Now it turns out that there have already been twice as many rape assaults in Oslo so far this year as there were in all of 2010. At least one member of Parliament, AndrĂ© Oktay Dahl of the Conservative Party, calls the situation “critical” and is brave enough to acknowledge that many of the perpetrators come from cultures “with a reprehensible attitude toward women.”

ISLAMISM IS WORSE THAN NAZISM EVER WAS.

UDPATED: SCROLL DOWN - Eurozone far from saved - in fact it failed its first test!

CNN:
Wednesday night's European summit was, well, a very European summit. It lasted forever, included several dramatic moments, ended in the wee hours of the morning and delivered a highly complex result. Yet, the questions that Americans might now ask are quite simple: Has this leaders' conclave succeeded in stopping the spread of the "contagion" from the eurozone's sovereign debt crisis? Will the European financial disease reach America's shores and affect local jobs and livelihoods? The answer may seem somewhat paradoxical: While the Europeans have made strides to beat the virus, this crisis is anything but over.
RTWT!

Italy saw its borrowing costs rise to a euro-era high on Friday in a sale of euro7.9 billion ($11.09 billion) in government debt, a sign that investors remain nervous about the country's prospects despite a grand European plan to fight the debt crisis.

The interest rate demanded by investors to lend the Italian government 10-year money topped 6 percent in Friday's auction, the highest level since the launch of the euro, and surpassing the 5.86 percent paid in a similar debt auction a month ago. Demand exceeded the amount on offer 1.27 times, a relatively weak outcome.

The auction was the first test of investor confidence in Italy since European leaders agreed to boost an emergency bailout fund, get banks to take a loss on their Greek debt holdings and recapitalize European banks. Premier Silvio Berlusconi promised the EU new measures to promote growth in Italy, necessary to help cut the country's public debt, at 120 percent of GDP the second-highest in the eurozone.

Despite those measures, which seek to keep Italy from having to ask for a bailout, investors remained wary of buying the country's debt.

STAY TUNED!


There are several things that you need to know about the eurozone crisis and Wednesday’s Summit agreement:

It isn’t over.
  1. The European Monetary Union’s (EMU) “architecture” is a failure.
  2. They spent too much and can’t possibly repay the debt.
  3. Banks will need to be bailed out.
  4. They will print money.

UPDATE: Euphoria may fade under debt deal scrutiny
EUROPEAN leaders may struggle to maintain the euphoria that drove the euro to its biggest one-day gain in more than a year as scrutiny deepens on their latest attempt to stem the region’s turmoil.

The weaknesses of Europe’s common currency area, ranging from its design to a persisting dearth of bank funding and anaemic economic growth, were not properly addressed in the measures revealed on Thursday to stem investor panic, said Harvard University economist Kenneth Rogoff and Jonathan Loynes at Capital Economics.

"My read of this is that the markets are cheered that they’re still alive," Rogoff — a former IMF chief economist — said as a compensated speaker at the Bloomberg FX11 Summit in New York on Thursday.

"Even in a fairly short period, doubts will start to grow again."
UPDATE:

Fear made a swift return to the eurozone yesterday as Italy faced record borrowing costs in its first attempt to tap the markets since European leaders came up with new plans to rein in the sovereign debt crisis.

The lack of confidence in their proposals was laid bare when Rome would was forced to pay interest rates of more than 6 per cent to borrow money for 10 years by selling new bonds. The rate – the highest for new 10- year bonds since the country adopted the single currency – reignited concerns about Europe's ability to deal with the crisis as it threatened to spread to countries that are seen as too big to bail out.

LEFTIST PROFESSOR TO BE INVESTIGATED FOR CALLING TO ASSAULT ZIONISTS

A leftist chemistry prof who made an obscene comment on Jerusalem Day will finally be investigated for his offense:
The State Prosecutors’ Office has ordered police to investigate a leftist Israeli professor who called for violence against Jewish youth on Jerusalem Day. The rare decision to investigate a figure on the political left for incitement to violence follows four months in which prosecutors received multiple complaints over the professor’s comments.

Professor Eyal Nir, who teaches chemistry at Ben-Gurion University, wrote on his Facebook page, “I call on the world to come and help break these disgusting peoples’ elbows.” The comment was made regarding youth who danced in the streets of Jerusalem on Jerusalem Day. [...]

Those who called to investigate Nir said there was reason for concern that his remarks could have led to violence. Jews have often been targeted for violent attack in Jerusalem, noted MK Uri Ariel, making Nir’s call to attack a real threat.

Several also noted the discrepancy between police treatment of Nir, and that of rabbis who gave their approbation to the book Torat HaMelech.
The biggest question here is if the professor will be dismissed from his job and made to perform community service, and certainly ostracized by sane society?

OBAMA'S THIRD PARTY STALKING HORSE TAKING SHAPE - JUST AS I PREDICTED

(AS I WROTE HERE), THE SPECIAL ELECTION IN NY26CD PROVED THAT OBAMA NEEDS a 3rd PARTY TO SIPHON GOP VOTES IN ORDER TO WIN RE-ELECTION.

REPEAT: OBAMA CAN WIN ONLY BY DIVERTING THE ANTI-OBMA VOTES AWAY FROM THE GOP AND TO A THIRD PARTY CANDIDATE.

THAT 3RD PARTY CANDIDATE COULD BE RON PAUL AND/OR A RUN BY SOMEONE OUT UP BY THIS NEW GROUP:
Americans Elect is a collection of Republicans, Democrats and independents who say they're fed up with the polarization that has poisoned American politics. Some of its backers have previously contributed to Obama, Romney or other candidates. Several are fans of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has flirted with the idea of running as a third-party centrist. The group's central figure is Peter Ackerman, a wealthy investor and former banker who considers himself an independent and who was active four years ago in a similar effort called Unity08.

The group plans to hold a national primary election on the Internet — a mass-participation exercise that anyone can join. Candidates can nominate themselves, and voters can form committees to "draft" candidates, including politicians drawn from the major parties — Hillary Rodham Clinton, for example, or Jon Huntsman. ...

... Who will its candidate be? Bloomberg is frequently mentioned, even though he says he doesn't plan to run. So is Huntsman, even though he says he's only interested in the Republican nomination. It might be former Louisiana Gov.
Buddy Roemer, who has been trying to break into the Republican race; former Sen. Evan Bayh (D-Ind.), who retired after denouncing both parties; or independent business figures such as Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, who has called on his fellow moguls to stop giving money to politicians.

Americans Elect says it plans to choose a presidential nominee (and a vice presidential candidate, who by the group's rules can't come from the same party) by June.

What happens then depends mostly on the shape of the contest between the Democratic and Republican candidates.
I EXPECT OBAMA AND SOROS AND PODESTA GET THEIR WAY AND THE 3RD PARTY CANDIDATE TO BE HUNTSMAN/BLOOMBERG ON THIS LINE - AND THEY MIGHT EVEN GET RON PAUL TO RUN AS A LIBERTARIAN.

(YEAH: SOROS & PODESTA: I WOULD NOT BE SURPRISED IF THEY FUNNEL MONEY THROUGH SHADOW GROUPS TO PAUL AND AMERICANS ELECT.)

11 CHARGED IN MASSIVE $1 BILLION DISABILITY FRAUD

NYTIMES: 11 Charged in $1 Billion L.I.R.R. Disability Scheme
Eleven people, including two doctors and a former union president, were charged on Thursday in a “massive fraud scheme” in which hundreds of Long Island Rail Road workers made false disability pension claims that could have cost a federal pension agency about $1 billion, according to court papers.

A total of 10 of the defendants — seven former railroad workers charged with making false pension claims, the former union president, a former federal railroad pension agency employee who helped the workers file the claims, and one of the doctors — were taken into custody in the early morning hours at their homes by F.B.I. agents and state investigators, officials said. The other doctor is expected to surrender in the coming days.

All were charged with mail fraud and conspiracy to commit health care fraud, according to a criminal complaint filed in the case. The defendants in custody were expected to be arraigned later on Thursday in Federal District Court in Manhattan.

The federal investigation followed reporting by The New York Times for a series of articles published in 2008 that revealed systematic abuses of Railroad Retirement Board pensions by Long Island Rail Road workers.

The charges involving the railroad come at a time when public workers’ unions across the country have faced heavy criticism for negotiating pension obligations that have led many government agencies to slash services and lay off teachers, police officers and other workers.

The United States attorney in Manhattan, Preet Bharara, and the head of the New York F.B.I. office, Janice K. Fedarcyk, were expected to announce the charges Thursday afternoon at a news conference along with two inspectors general: Barry L. Kluger of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which is the parent agency of the railroad, and Martin J. Dickman from the retirement board. The federal prosecutors and the F.B.I. were assisted in the investigation by the inspectors general at the two agencies.

The Times articles reported that virtually every career employee of the railroad was applying for and receiving disability payments, giving the Long Island Rail Road a disability rate of three to four times that of the average railroad.

The Times found that retired railroad employees who had successfully claimed disability were regularly playing golf at a state-owned course without charge — another perquisite of their disability.
THIS IS BUT THE TIP OF THE DISABILITY, MEDICARE/MEDICAID FRAUD ICEBERG.

WHEN MULTIPLIED ACROSS THE ENTIRE USA AND ALL THE GOVERNMENT UNIONS, IT PROBABLY AMOUNTS TO $500 BILLION OF FRAUDULENT CLAIMS AGAINST THE TAXPAYERS.

AND ANN COULTER AND I WOULD BOTH HAPPILY VOTE FOR MITT OVER OBAMA.

EVEN THOUGH ANN COULTER AND I WOULD BOTH LOVE TO HAVE A MORE CONSERVATIVE PRESIDENT.

IT IS OBVIOUS TO EVERYONE WITH THAT MITT IS NOT THE MOST CONSERVATIVE ON THE RACE, BUT NONE REPEAT NONE ARE PERFECT.

I WAS ORIGINALLY A PERRY SUPPORTER, BUT HE'S BEEN DREADFUL SO FAR. THE WORST CAMPAIGN OF THEM ALL. AND HIS IMMIGRATION STAND IS UNACCEPTABLE TO ME. (THOUGH I'D VOTE FOR HIM OVER OBAMA.)

NEWT WOULD MAKE THE BEST POTUS, BUT HE IS PROBABLY UNELECTABLE BECAUSE OF HIS BAGGAGE. (I'D VOTE FOR HIM OVER OBAMA.)

LOVABLE HERMAN CAIN HAS PROVEN WITH HIS 9-9-9 PLAN - WHICH THEM BECAME 9-9-9/9-0-9 WITH SEVERAL CAVEATS, AND BY HIS ABORTION COMMENTS AND HIS IGNORANCE OF THE RIGHT OF RETURN AND SO MUCH ELSE, THAT HE IS NOT READY TO BE POTUS. (I'D VOTE FOR HIM OVER OBAMA.)

SANTORUM AND HUNTSMAN AND BACHMANN ARE GOING TO DROP OUT SOON.

SOME READERS HAVE MISCONSTRUED MY CRITICISM OF MITT-BASHERS AS BEING A DEFENSE OF ALL THAT MITT STANDS FOR OR HAS ACHIEVED OR ESPOUSES.

IT IS NOT.

IT'S MERELY BEEN AN ATTEMPT TO REMIND THE CONSERVATIVES WHO ARE ATTACKING MITT AS AN UNACCEPTABLE GOP NOMINEE, THAT THE TONE AND PITCH AND TENOR OF THEIR ATTACKS IS PROVOKING MANY OTHER CONSERVATIVES TO SAY THEY WILL STAY HOME AND NOT VOTE RATHER THAN VOTE FOR MITT.

ALL THIS WILL DO IS ELECT OBAMA.

IN FACT, IT'S OBAMA BEST CHANCE AT WINNING: ONLY BY DEPRESSING GOP TURNOUT AND CONSERVATIVE TURNOUT CAN OBAMA HOPE TO WIN RE-ELECTION.

SO BY GOING TO FAR IN THEIR CRITICISM OF MITT, THE MITT-BASHERS ARE HELPING OBAMA.

THAT IS A MISTAKE.

YES: WE MUST VET ALL THE CANDIDATES - AND PART OF THAT VETTING IS "GOING NEGATIVE".

I HAVE DONE THAT TO MITT AND NEWT AND CAIN AND PERRY.

BUT I HAVEN'T GONE OVER THE TOP. OR EVER SAID I WOULD STAY HOME AND NOT VOTE RATHER THAN VOTE FOR ANY OF THE CANDIDATES.

LOOK AT IT THIS WAY:

WE EXPECT THE CANDIDATES TO SUPPORT THE EVENTUAL NOMINEE NO MATTER WHO IT IS.

IF YOU WANT TO DEFEAT OBAMA, THEN YOU SHOULD PLEDGE TO DO THE SAME.

AND NOT ATTACK ANY OF THE CANDIDATES TO A DEGREE THAT MIGHT HURT THEM IN THE GENERAL.

REAGAN CALLED THIS THE GOP'S 11TH COMMANDMENT.

I HAVE BEEN ATTACKED FOR ESSENTIALLY SAYING THE SAME THING AS REAGAN,

SHAME ON ALL OF YOU FOR THAT.

YOU ARE ATTACKING COULTER AND REAGAN WHEN YOU ATTACK ME FOR SAYING THAT THE MITT BASHERS NEED TO TONE DOWN THEIR ATTACKS.

NOTE:

I HAVE NEVER SAID THAT THE CRITICISM IF MITT MUST STOP ALTOGETHER.

I HAVE JUST CRITICISED THE DEGREE AND TONE OF THE ATTACKS.

LET'S SAVE THAT VITRIOL FOR OBAMA AND THE LEFT.

Ariel Sharon's leftist son defends his dark actions in his last conscious days, attacks Netanyahu

Gilad Sharon, the son of the now comatose former prime minister who abused the law in his last days and betrayed his nation in the end, is now writing a book about his corrupt father, and was interviewed by the Daily Caller. At the beginning, he says something that hasn't been publicly confirmed about Ariel Sharon's consciousness:
First things first, how is your father? What is his current condition?

My father is currently in the hospital. We visit him each and every day. We have been visiting him every single day — my brother, my wife and myself. Now that I am in [the United States] my brother is covering for me. He is strong, my father is very strong …

When he is asleep, he looks like lord of the manor sleeping. And when he is awake he looks at me, he moves his fingers when I ask him. For me, every little thing like that is a big deal and we hope for the best.

Is he aware when you are there, does he know what is going on around him?

When he is awake, he looks at me, I cannot — I don’t have any scientific proof, and I am not looking for one. I think that he is, you know.
Honestly, it sounds as though Sharon is fantasizing that his father is awake, and running the risk of tabloid-ing this news that hasn't exactly been confirmed, even by the Israeli MSM.
You say in the book that in many ways you were the impetus for the idea of the disengagement from Gaza. How did that come about?

The thing is that we are a very united, close and warm family. I am very proud that my father would listen about what I had to say. But the real thing is to take the decision and execute it. And that was a great act of leadership. At the end of the day it was his decision and his responsibility. But I see no other in those days or even today that would have that leadership. This is something that had to be done. The public in Israel supported it. And he conducted it. And you know what, Arab leaders appreciated his efforts toward peace. As the [former] president of Egypt [Hosni Mubarak] said in December 2004, Sharon is the only chance for peace. That says it all.
Yes, we get it. The sole option is ceding land for peace, and not fixing one's cultural beliefs. What a sugarcoat. And he goes out of his way to promote his father's lugubrious positions as though he were a saint.
Critics look back and say that disengagement was a failure due to Hamas’ takeover and the stream of rocket attacks targeting Israel from Gaza. How do you respond?

We had rockets before. We had rockets since April 16, 2001. It was a few years before. But the difference is, for instance, in 2004 alone, one year before disengagement, before withdrawing from Gaza, we had more rockets than we had after disengagement in 2005 and 2006 together. So that claim is wrong. The thing is that it gave us the possibility to fight the terror from Gaza because while we were there we were considered sovereign, so we couldn’t act against a place we were responsible for. But after withdrawing from Gaza, it gave us the opportunity to act against terror there.
This is pathetic. When the IDF was in Gaza, it enabled them to keep rocket attacks away from civilian range much more easily. It was after they retreated that they became much worse, and people were injured and died from attacks. In fact, terror attacks increased during Sharon's term as PM. Until 2006, it was not as severe a case as it is now. Sharon's defense here is blatant and insulting to terror victims in Ashdod and Ashkelon, to name but some examples of places that were seriously hit hard by the damage.

Here's where he turns - subtly or otherwise - to defeatism.
One interesting part of the book is that you list many of the conversations your father had with world leaders after various terror attacks in Israel. The world leaders would call and perfunctorily condemn the attacks before urging restraint, restraint, restraint. Did that ever get on your father’s nerves?

Restraint is very good advice when terror attacks are not in your own country. My father, he was handling those two battles at the same time. The first one was the fight against terror. And the second one was the diplomatic one. He was explaining to other world leaders what Israel was going through. Of course it became easier after Sept. 11 could understand what terror means. In the book I bring the actual transcripts of those meetings and they are very interesting.
Oh sure he was. He certainly took a turn for the worse in the end. At one point circa 2002, he refused to respond after a few terrorist attacks, and it led to considerable horror.

And did I mention how, in the book, Sharon attacked Netanyahu, calling him a "coward":
In his new book on his father Ariel Sharon’s life, Gilad Sharon calls current Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a “coward” and a “subversive.”

His attack on Netanyahu came in the context of discussing his father’s effort to push his Gaza disengagement plan through the Knesset, the Israeli parliament, in 2004. Gilad discussed how Netanyahu and several other members of Sharon’s cabinet tried to make the effort more difficult.

“Netanyahu, who had helped draft the plan and voted in favor of it in the cabinet meeting … suddenly added a condition: they called for a national referendum, without which they would not support the plan,” he wrote in “Sharon: The Life of a Leader.”

To push this new condition, Gilad writes, Netanyahu demanded an “urgent” meeting with his father before the vote. Ariel Sharon refused.

Netanyahu ultimately voted in favor of the plan at the vote, but the move irked Gilad.

“This was a true manifestation of Netanyahu’s character,” Gilad writes. “Not only was he subversive, but he was also a coward,” he added, presumably calling Netanyahu a coward for not standing by his threat to vote against the measure.
No, I think Sharon is just hateful of him for daring suggest a national referendum, which Sharon was against because it was possible that he could lose it.
In an interview with The Daily Caller, Gilad seemed none too enthused to discuss that passage of his book.

“Well, you know, I bring the facts as they are,” Gilad said when asked if his father viewed Netanyahu similarly. “I am sure Netanyahu is doing his best,” he added, before transitioning to discuss his father’s diplomatic efforts.

When pressed again to discuss how his father’s relationship was with Netanyahu, Gilad exclaimed, “My father appointed him minister in his government!”

Asked once more whether his father thought highly of Netanyahu, Gilad again seemed reluctant to delve further into the topic.
Well from what I can tell, their relationship certainly did fall out, as Netanyahu resigned. But aside from that, it is rather odd that he doesn't want to elaborate further. He probably wrote the part out of vindictive sentiments against Netanyahu, and as of today, you could pretty much say that Gilad Sharon is a leftist who sure wouldn't support the Likud.

I wouldn't consider a book like this that very likely to whitewash even the worst parts of Ariel Sharon's history worth buying and reading, and advise all to pass on it.

The framework for the new fund is to be put in place in November.

... The ambition is not in doubt but many crucial details are missing and the test of this deal lies in the weeks ahead.


Greece has been given a chance to escape its debt trap but long years of austerity lie ahead and its economy is still shrinking.

The 1tn-euro bailout fund will be lower than some people think necessary to protect big economies like Italy and Spain. The test will be whether it lowers their borrowing costs.

With this deal some time has been bought. Some of the crucial details of how, for instance, the rescue fund will work, will not be hammered out until November.

Hanging over all of this is the question of growth. All of these calculations, commitments and expressions of determination can be dismissed if Europe's weakest countries do not return to growth.
DESPITE THE HAPPINESS IN THE MARKETS TODAY DUE TO THE DEAL MIGHT FAIL -
  • THE FUND IS TOO SMALL
  • THE DETAILS HAVEN'T BEEN WORKED OUT
  • THE BANKS MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO RAISE ENOUGH ADDITIONAL CAPITAL
THIS IS NOT YET A FAIT ACCOMPLI.

STAY TUNED...

IS GLENN REYNOLDS SURREPTITIOUSLY AIDING THE OWS?


TWO POSTS AT INSTAPUNDIT [UMPH ADDED]:

October 26, 2011

COLD-WEATHER ACCESSORIES: Hats, Gloves, Scarves, and More.

WHAT “ECONOMIC JUSTICE” SMELLS LIKE: “Without running water or working toilets, the crowded anti-Wall Street encampments across the country are not the most pleasant-smelling places to live. Nor are they quiet, with drumming and chanting echoing through the air at all hours of the night. That’s why police and neighbors in some cities are starting to lose patience with the protesters, who are preparing to settle in for the winter months.”

IT WOULD APPEAR SO!

VERY CLEVER SUBLIMINAL ADVERTISING PROFESSOR AMAZON!

HEH.

ALL HAIL THE ARAB SPRING

The mass media has been extremely optimistic about the promise of the so called Arab Spring.

Now winter is approaching and how much better are things in the region?

How can we ignore the behaviour exhibited by those who captured Qaddafi and convince ourselves that the future for the region is bright?


Don't get me wrong - Qaddafi probably deserved worse... but somehow I believe only fools can ignore the bestiality and believe in the near term prospects for peace in the region.

LOOKS LIKE THE KGB SHOT CHECHEN TERRORISTS IN TURKEY:

LOOKS LIKE THE KGB SHOT CHECHEN TERRORISTS IN TURKEY:

Russian prosecutors have confirmed two Chechens shot dead in Turkey last month were being linked to the bombing of Moscow's busiest airport in January.

They said they were investigating the deaths of Zaurbek Amriyev and Rustam Altemirov as part of their inquiry into the bombing, which killed 37 people.

Both were reportedly shot with a pistol fitted with a silencer, along with a third Chechen, Berg-Khazh Musayev.

Russian security services declined to comment on the shootings.

THAT PUTIN DOESN'T FELLER HE DON'T MESS AROUND. I WISH WE TREATED THE ISLAMO-TERRORIST SCUM THE SAME WAY. NO BIG HI-TECH OPERATION, JUST A COUPLA HUNDRED AGENTS WITH 9MM HANDGUNS AND SILENCERS...

BLEAK OUTLOOK ON "PEACE" BLABBER

Israeli ambassador to the US Michael Oren is not optimistic about the long time-wasting "negotiations" with the PLO:
The outlook for Israeli-Palestinian peace talks does not look “particularly bright,” Israel’s ambassador to the United States said Tuesday, as international mediators descended on Jerusalem in search of a formula to jump-start negotiations between the parties.

“Our policy remains direct negotiations to achieve a two-state solution. … Until further notice, that is our policy — to try to get [Palestinian Authority President] Mahmoud Abbas back to the negotiating table,” Ambassador Michael Oren told reporters at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. “What can I say? It doesn’t look particularly bright.”
It's distasteful that they're going by that leftist concoction of two-state solution, which only amounts to segregation, but in any case, Abbas is so racist already he's not suited for associating with.
Mr. Abbas has been lobbying U.N. Security Council members to endorse the Palestinian membership application he submitted last month.

He also has refused to join final-status negotiations with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu unless the Israeli leader imposes a complete freeze on settlements in the West Bank and accepts President Obama’s formulation that the borders of a Palestinian state be based on Israel’s pre-1967 lines.

In recent days, Palestinian officials have spoken of a third precondition: the release of top Palestinian prisoners who were not among the 1,027 released last week as part of Israel’s deal with Hamas to free captured Staff Sgt. Gilad Schalit.

The Schalit deal set into motion a chain of events that produced a second prisoner swap Tuesday, as the Israeli Cabinet unanimously agreed to free 25 Egyptian prisoners in return for an accused Israeli spy who has been held by Egypt’s interim military government since June.

Mr. Oren blasted the heroes’ welcome given to the freed Palestinian prisoners, many of whom had been convicted of terrorism.

“I think it underscores the great difference between Israeli society and the society on the other side,” the ambassador said. “We celebrate life, they revel in death.”

He accused the Palestinian Authority, like the militant group Hamas, of celebrating killers, such as the mastermind of a 2001 bombing on a Sbarro pizzeria in Jerusalem.

“Mahmoud Abbas comes out and says, ‘Not only are these people heroes, but we’re going to work for the release of the terrorist who killed 39 people at a Passover Seder in Netanya, that’s a hero,’” Mr. Oren said. “What kind of message does that send to Palestinian children?”
Answer: hatred and hatemongering against Israel, pure and simple. That's not the kind of person one should be associating with.

UPDATED --- RIGHT-WING ATTACKS AGAINST ROMNEY FOR STAYING CLEAR OF OHIO'S REFERENDA ARE IDIOTIC:

ROMNEY WISELY AVOIDED WEIGHING IN ON THE REFERENDA IN OHIO.

FACT:

THE REFERENDUM IN OHIO REPEALING KASICH'S ANTI-GOVERNMENT UNION MEASURES LOOKS LIKE IT'S GOING DOWN TO A HUGE DEFEAT.


FACT:

IF ROMNEY WERE TO EXPLICITLY SUPPORT KASICH ON THE REFERENDUM NOW, THEN THIS COULD COST HIM OHIO IN 2012.


FACT:

WINNING OHIO IN 2012 IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN DEFENDING KASICH'SANTI-GOVERNMENT UNION MEASURES NOW.


FACT:

KASICH'S ANTI-GOVERNMENT MEASURES WENT FURTHER THAN WALKER'S AND MAY HAVE GONE TOO FAR.


FACT:

KASICH'S MEASURE'S ARE NOT SACROSANCT AND DEFENDING THEM IS NOT PARAMOUNT.


A GOP WIN IN 2012 IS PARAMOUNT.


RIGHT-WINGERS ATTACKING ROMNEY ON THIS ARE IDIOTIC.

CAN'T ANYONE ON THE RIGHT PLAY THIS GAME?

SHIT.

ROMNEY IS RUNING AGAINST OBAMA IN A CAMPAIGN DESIGNED TO WIN IN 2012.

IT SEEMS TO ME THAT MANY ON THE RIGHT WANT A VICTORY AT THE GOP CONVENTION MORE THAN VICTORY AGAINST OBAMA IN 2012.


BUT ALL THE RIGHT-WING ANTI-RINO'S JUMPED AT THE OPPORTUNITY TO SLAM THE GUY.


I THINK NEXT TIME THE ANTI-RINO'S SHOULD HOLD THEIR FIRE.

CLASS WARFARE PROPAGANDA FROM CBO



NYTIMES:
In its report, the budget office found that from 1979 to 2007, average inflation-adjusted after-tax income grew by 275 percent for the 1 percent of the population with the highest income. For others in the top 20 percent of the population, average real after-tax household income grew by 65 percent.

By contrast, the budget office said, for the poorest fifth of the population, average real after-tax household income rose 18 percent.
IMPLICIT IN THIS WHOLE "THE RICH GOT RICHER" CLASS WARFARE PROPAGANDA ARE A FEW SLY DISTORTIONS; HERE ARE THE CORRECTIONS:

1 - THE TOP FOLKS EARNED WHAT THEY MADE.

OPERATIVE WORD: EARNED. IT WAS NOT TAKEN OR STOLEN. IT DID NOT BELONG TO POORER FOLKS OR THE GOVERNMENT. THEY GOT IT FAIR AND SQUARE. IF THEY GOT MORE IT WAS BECAUSE THEY EARNED IT.

2 - THE SIZE OF PIE IS NOT STATIC; THE PIE GREW.

EVERYONE'S LOT IMPROVED. AND NOT JUST THEIR INCOME, BUT ALSO IN MATERIAL WAYS: ALL CONSUMABLES IMPROVED IN QUALITY AND BECAME MORE WIDESPREAD IN THEIR USE.

3 - THE RICH GETTING RICHER DOESN'T MAKE THE POOR POORER.

THE FACT THAT STEVE JOBS GOT RICH DIDN'T MAKE ME POORER OR LESS RICH THAN I MIGHT HAVE BEEN; IT MADE ME RICHER - AND IF NOT BECAUSE I OWNED APPLE STOCK, THEN BECAUSE OF APPLE PRODUCTS. EVEN IF I DIDN'T OWN AN APPLE; APPLE PRODUCTS INDUCED ALL OF APPLE'S COMPETITORS TO IMPROVE.

REPEAT: NO ONE GOT POORER BECAUSE JOBS AND PEOPLE LIKE HIM GOT RICHER.

4 - THE RICH DON'T GET RICH BY TAKING MONEY AWAY FROM THE POOR.

THEY GET RICH BY SUCCESSFULLY OFFERING WHAT PEOPLE WANT TO BUY AND WHAT THEY CHOOSE TO BUY AT AN AGREED TO PRICE.

ATTACKING THE RICH FOR BEING GOOD AT THEIR JOBS IS ANTI-AMERICAN.

FACT: IF YOU INCLUDE ASIA, THEN MORE PEOPLE BECAME WELL OFF FROM 1979 TO 2007 THAN AT ANYTIME IN HUMAN HISTORY.

AND IT WAS PROBABLY THE SECOND GREATEST ERA FOR ECONOMIC GROWTH IN THE USA, SECOND ONLY TO CAL COOLIDGE'S TERM - WHICH WAS A LOW TAX ERA..

THE DIRE ECONOMIC SITUATION ALL OVER THE WORLD WAS NOT CAUSED BY GREED OR THE RICH.

IT WAS CAUSED BY SOCIALISTS AND SOCIALIST POLICIES:


GREECE AND ITALY AND SPAIN AND IRELAND AND RHODE ISLAND AND CALIFORNIA AND ILLINOIS ARE NOT ALL GOING BUST BECAUSE THE RICH GOT RICHER, OR BECAUSE OF TAX BREAKS FOR THE RICH - OR BECAUSE OF UNFUNDED WARS AND RUNAWAY DEFENSE SPENDING.

THEY ARE ALL GOING BUST BECAUSE OF SOCIALIST POLICIES.

THE FINANCIAL CRISIS IN THE USA WAS CAUSED BY THE HOUSING BUBBLE AND THE HOUSING BUBBLE IN THE USA WAS CAUSED BY SOCIALIST POLICIES OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND FANNIE MAE AND FREDDIE MAC AND THEIR CAREER POLITICIAN PALS IN CONGRESS.

THE SOLUTION ALL OVER THE WORLD AND IN THE USA IS LESS SOCIALISM.

THAT WILL LEAD TO MORE GROWTH - AND EVERYONE BENEFITS FROM MORE GROWTH.

EVERYONE.

NOT EVERYONE IN EXACTLY THE SAME PERCENTAGE, BUT EVERYONE ACCORDING TO HOW WELL AND HOW MUCH THEY POSITION THEMSELVES TO PARTICIPATE ION WHAT DRIVES THE GROWTH.

THE LEFT CLEVERLY OR UNCONSCIOUSLY USES PASSIVE TERMS TO DESCRIBE THE FACT THAT "THE RICH GOT RICHER."

THEY SAY THINGS LIKE: "MORE MONEY WENT TO THE TOP" AS IF THOSE WHO EARNED IT DIDN'T ER... UM... EARN IT.

AS IF THE GOVERNMENT WAS RUN BY EVIL CONSERVATIVES WHO GAVE IT TO THEM.

THIS IS CLASS WARFARE AND IT IS EVIL AND MENDACIOUS.

REDISTRIBUTING "THE WEALTH" IS NOTHING MORE THAN TAKING PRIVATE PROPERTY AWAY FROM THOSE WHO EARNED IT AND THAT IS THEFT...

THAT IS TYRANNY.

THE OWS THEME SONG:


MICHAEL MOORE: POSTER BOY FOR LEFTIST HYPOCRISY

MOORE - AND STEWART AND LETTERMEN AND MAHER - ARE ADMIRED BY LEFTISTS BECAUSE LEFTISTS ARE DUPES WHO LIKE SNIDE, SARCASTIC AND SMUG ATTACK DOGS AND REVILE WHOLESOME MIDDLE CLASS VALUES.

A former director of Goldman Sachs and Procter & Gamble and the longtime head of McKinsey & Company, the elite consulting firm, to be INDICTED!

Mr. Gupta, 62 ... is expected to surrender to the authorities on Wednesday... The charges would also mean a stunning fall from grace of a trusted adviser to political leaders and chief executives of the world’s most celebrated companies.

A former director of Goldman Sachs and Procter & Gamble and the longtime head of McKinsey & Company, the elite consulting firm, Mr. Gupta has been under investigation over whether he leaked corporate secrets to Raj Rajaratnam, the hedge fund manager who was sentenced this month to 11 years in prison for trading on illegal stock tips.

While there has been no indication yet that Mr. Gupta profited directly from the information he passed to Mr. Rajaratnam, securities laws prohibit company insiders from divulging corporate secrets to those who then profit from them.
THIS PARTICULAR GAME IS RAMPANT ON WALL STREET. ALWAYS HAS BEEN.

HARIRI VERSUS KHADAFFY VERSUS SADDAM

  • HARIRI WAS ASSASINATED YEARS AGO AND THERE IS STILL NO JUSTICE - IN FACT, HIZBALLAH, WHICH WAS INVOLVED IN THE ASSASSINATION, IS NOW PART OF THE LEBANESE GOVERNMENT.
  • QADDAFI WAS ASSASSINATED DAYS AGO, AND THAT WAS ROUGH JUSTICE.
  • SADDAM WASN'T ASSASNATED: HE GOT A TRIAL AND WAS EXECUTED ACCORDING TO THE SECULAR LAW - BY HANGING.
NOW GUESS WHICH EVENT WAS MOST INFLUENCED BY THE USA?

JUST SAYING...

TURKEY TAKES AID FROM ISRAEL

Turkey on Tuesday finally accepted Israel's earthquake aid, two days after a devastating temblor hit eastern Turkey, and following a number of rebuffed Israeli government offers of assistance.

According to a Foreign Ministry spokesman, the Turks made a request through Israel's embassy in Ankara for Israel to send mobile homes to the devastated Van province where the earthquake hit.
HOW MUCH AID WILL GAZA AND THE WEST BANK OFFER?

YES: THEY CAN AFFORD IT: THE SO-CALLED PALESTINIANS ARE THE NUMBER ONE RECIPIENTS OF AID IN THE WORLD AND THEY CAN AFFORD TO HELP.

IS CODE PINK OFFERING AID? HAVE THE FLOTILLA ORGANIZERS SENT ANYTHING?

CHRIS CHRISTIE WAS HAMLET ON THE HUDSON REVISITED: THE ASTUTE BLOGGERS SCOOPS THE NYTIMES BY 3 WEEKS

NYTMES TODAY:
Democrats searched long and hard for a better alternative, most notably Gov. Mario Cuomo of New York, who was that year’s version of Chris Christie or Mitch Daniels.
TAB 3 WEEKS AGO.

REGULAR READERS KNOW WE SCOOP THE BIGGIES ALL THE TIME. SPREAD THE WORD.

IDIOTIC LEFT-WING PROPAGANDA FROM IRAN: WEST AIDED LIBYAN REBELLION TO PLUNDER OIL

Ahmadinejad sounds a lot like Michael Moore and Noam Chomsky:

JPOST:
Ahmadinejad says West set to plunder Libya's oil wealth

Western countries attacked Gadaffi when he was no longer of use to them in order to exploit country's oil reserves, Iranian president says, warning Libyans that the West intends to run country for them.
YEAH SURE; THE SAME WAY WE PLUNDER KUWAIT AND SAUDI ARABIA. BY MAKING THEM FILTHY RICH.

ONLY LEFTISTS ARE STUPID ENOUGH TO BELIEVE THIS CRAP.

LIKE AFGHANISTAN AND IRAQ WARS WERE ABUT OIL.

IDIOTS.

IN FACT, THE REBELLION WAS PRO-ISLAMIST AND IT WAS A MISTAKE FOR THE WEST TO AID THEM WITHOUT HAVING A WAY TO MAKE SURE A PRO-WESTERN REGIME TOOK OVER.

IT WAS A MISTAKE UNLESS OBAMA WANTED ISLAMISTS TO TAKE OVER...

JOE BIDEN'S BRAIN: CONFABULATING JOE

As I've said before, Joe Biden has brain issues, including two brain surgeries for aneurysms in 1988. Just a few months ago, he welcomed Representative Gabrielle Giffords to the cracked head club upon to her return to Congress.

Simply put, Joe Biden confabulates. Psychiatric definition of the term:
to replace the gaps left by a disorder of the memory with imaginary remembered experiences consistently believed to be true.
Learn more about the fascinating phenomenon of confabulation at Wikipedia. Clearly, confabulation is often connected to wishful thinking and is not a deliberate lie in the strict sense of the word....

IS HERMAN CAIN THE GOP'S "MAGICAL NEGRO"?

WIKI:

The Magical Negro or magical African-American friend, is a supporting stock character in American cinema, who, by use of special insight or powers, helps the white protagonist.[1]

African-American filmmaker Spike Lee popularized the term
HMMM:

SKEPTICAL EYE: Tuesday, May 24, 2011

Herman Cain...Magic Negro?

...some Republicans have decided that they need a "magic negro" of their own. After all, what could counteract the uplifting post-racial appeal of the first half-black, half-American president so well as a presidential candidate who is an authentic American black man, with no unsettling questions about his birth, his Social Security number, his college records, his religion and even his name?
I WONDER WHAT RUSH THINKS ABOUT THS?



THIS IS THE ARTICLE THAT STARTED THE WHOLE MAGIC NEGRO THING:
Obama the 'Magic Negro'

The Illinois senator lends himself to white America's idealized, less-than-real black man.


MEMO TO OWS PROTESTERS: IF SOCIALISM OR THE WELFARE STATE WORKED, THEN...

IF SOCIALISM OR THE WELFARE STATE WORKED, THEN:
  1. THEN USSR WOULD BE THE RICHEST COUNTRY ON EARTH.
  2. THEN NORTH KOREANS WOULD LIVE BETTER THAN SOUTH KOREANS.
  3. THEN WEST GERMANS WOULD HAVE BEEN TRYING TO GET INTO EAST GERMAN.
  4. THEN FLORIDIANS WOULD BE TRYING TO GET INTO CUBA.
  5. THEN MAO'S CHINA WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN AN IMPOVERISHED LAND OF STARVATION AND MODERN CHINA WOULDN'T BE THE 2ND LARGEST ECONOMY IN THE WORLD.
  6. THEN GREECE AND IRELAND AND ITALY AND SPAIN WOULDN'T BE GOING BANKRUPT AND DESTROYING THE EURO-ZONE.
  7. THEN RHODE ISLAND AND ILLINOIS AND CALIFORNIA WOULDN'T BE GOING BANKRUPT.
SOCIALISM AND THE WELFARE STATE SUCK.

IT'S A FACT. EVERYWHERE IT'S BEEN TRIED - EVERY TIME.

SOCIALISM IS THE ROAD TO SERFDOM.

THE ROAD TO LESS LIBERTY, AND LESS PROSPERITY - BECAUSE PROSPERITY IS A BY-PRODUCT OF LIBERTY.

(IDEA: SOME RIGHT-WING BILLIONARE - LIKE THE KOCH BROS OR STEVE FORBES - OUGHT TO BE HANDING OUT COPIES OF HAYEK'S BOOK, THE ROAD TO SERFDOM, TO VERY OWS PROTESTER IN THE NATION.)

MEMO TO BERNARD HENRI-LEVY:

BHL - ONE OF THE FRENCH "INTELLECTUALS" WHO AGITATED FOR THE US LED NATO INTERVENTION IN LIBYA - IS NOW APPARENTLY SHOCKED BY THE TREATMENT KHADAFFI GOT AT THE HANDS OF HIS FELLOW MUSLIMS:
I fear that it [GADAFY'S EXECUTION] will pollute the essential morality of an insurrection that had been, up to that point, almost exemplary.
ER, UM... HOW DO YOU SPELL STFU IN FWENCH?

THIS WAS NO DEMOCRATIC UPRISING; THIS WAS AN AL QAEDA AND IRANIAN LED JIHAD. AND OBAMA AND NATO HELPED.

NAH-NAH NAH NAH - NAH-NAH NAH NAH, HEY HEY GOODBYE LYRICIST SAYS GOODBYE

RIP MR LEKA:
Probably the most-heard song at American sporting events, beside the National Anthem, is Na Na, Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye, the only song I know that prompted the creation of a rock group instead of the other way around. Leka, a songwriter and producer, wrote the chorus that you’ve heard a million times if you’ve ever been to a high school football game: Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye.

As the story goes, in 1969 Leka was helping a musician friend, Gary De Carlo, fill the B side of a 45 record, and decided to record a song Leka had written a few years earlier. But at a playing time of two minutes, it was too short — the pair wanted to insure that radio stations didn’t play it instead of the A-side selection. So Leka lengthened it with the long chorus of Na na na na, etc.

But the record company liked it anyway and released it as an A-side selection, using the fictitious band name, Steam, that De Carlo and Leka had invented for record labeling purposes.

The song did fairly well. Then, eight years later, the Chicago White Sox got involved.

In 1977, the organist for the Chicago White Sox, Nancy Faust, began using the song to stoke the crowd into taunting the opposing team when visiting players struck out, say, or when their pitcher was removed. It is unclear how it spread, but within a few years the chant had become an anthem of sports conquest
Goodbye Mr. Leka...

Mike Pence panic: Survivor’s Rupert Boneham to run for Indiana governor

INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 23 (UPI) — Rupert Boneham, winner of the 2004 season of “Survivor,” announced he is seeking the Libertarian Party nomination for governor in Indiana.

Boneham, 47, of Washington Township, said he is a man of the people whose priorities would be more jobs, better schools and maintaining correctional facilities.

“I hope Indiana is ready for someone like me that does care and does understand what we are going through,” Boneham said Saturday at a pizza party thrown at an Indianapolis VFW post.

THEY WILL TRY TO GET RON PAUL TO RUN FOR POTUS ON THE LIBERTARIAN LINE.

AND THEY WANT MITT TO GET THE NOMINATION IN ORDER FOR CONSERVATIVES TO STAY HOME OR VOTE FOR RON PAUL.

HOW DO WE STOP THIS STRATEGY?

GET PAUL TO SAY HE WON'T RUN, AND CONVINCE CONSERVATIVES THAT ABO IS THE RIGHT COURSE.

European children are being brainwashed into ‘respecting’ Islam

European children are being brainwashed into ‘respecting’ Islam with school-organized mosque visits and syllabuses that give undue prominence to a mythical Islamic ‘Golden Age.’

The picture below is from La Roche in France. The newspaper headline school pupils immerse themselves in Islam at La Roche mosque.”

Islam vs Europe  Here’s an excerpt from the British government website that provides information on the national curriculum. It describes a programme of lessons called “The Achievement of Muhammad (pbuh)” and discusses how to grade the childrens’ essays, quoting a few examples:
Over a number of lessons, the pupils had read and discussed texts about Muhammad’s (pbuh) life, covering his family’s reaction to his claims, as well as the reaction of people in Mecca and Medina. The pupils debated Muhammad’s (pbuh) achievements in groups and as a class.
As homework the teacher asked the pupils to answer the following assessment questions: Discuss the main events in Muhammad’s (pbuh) life that led others to believe he was a prophet from Allah (attainment target 1 beliefs, teachings and sources). What do you think Muhammad (pbuh) achieved in his life? (attainment target 2 meaning, purpose and truth).
Here’s a photo from of a trip to a mosque where British female students are forced to bow down to Allah:
Here are some excerpts from the children’s essays:
JOHN: “I think the main events in Muhammad’s life which led others to believe he was a prophet were when he had a vision from Gabriel in a cave outside Mecca. Some may think that he could have made it up but I think he was telling the truth because he was so convinced and honest that it could well have happened. Also he has so much to back him up and he couldn’t have just made it all up. Personally I think Muhammad was a great man and he had much strength and courage to do what he did and he has only God to thank for that.”
ALEX: Muhammad achieved an extremely big thing in his life. Creating a religion is very hard but creating a religion that is the second biggest in the world is even harder.
LAURA: Muhammad left his country and moved to Medina. During his time there he saw how much hatred there was, so he took it upon himself to do something about it. He brought the Medinian and Meccan Muslims together, and got them working alongside each other. …He preached to people who believed in many gods ad whose lives were full of sin and united religions and differences… I believe spreading the news of what you believe in, and totally changing a country from bad to good is a great achievement in anyone’s life.
[Message to American parents from BNI: Your children may be subjected to the same kind of Islamic brainwashing in their schools. Make sure you know what/if they are teaching them about Islam and raise Hell with the school board at any hints of Islamic indoctrination. It has already happened in some US public schools and American parents have succeeded in getting it eliminated from the curriculum.
