U.S. Faces Biological Attack Within 5 Years


WASHINGTON – The terrorism threat to the United States during the next five years will be driven by instability in the Middle East and Africa, persistent challenges to border security, and increasing Internet savvy, says a new intelligence assessment obtained by The Associated Press.


Chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear attacks are considered the most dangerous threats that could be carried out against the U.S. But those threats are also the most unlikely because it is so difficult for al-Qaida and similar groups to acquire the materials needed to carry out such plots, according to the internal Homeland Security Threat Assessment for the years 2008-2013.
The al-Qaida terrorist network continues to focus on U.S. attack targets vulnerable to massive economic losses, casualties, and political turmoil, the assessment said.
This month, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said the threat posed by weapons of mass destruction remains "the highest priority at the federal level." Speaking to reporters on Dec. 3, Chertoff explained that more people, such as terrorists, will learn how to make dirty bombs, and biological and chemical weapons. "The other side is going to continue to learn more about doing things," he said.
Marked "for official use only," the report does not specify its audience, but the assessments typically go to law enforcement, intelligence officials and the private sector. When determining threats, intelligence officials consider loss of life, economic and psychological consequences.
Intelligence officials also predict that in the next five years, terrorists will try to conduct a destructive biological attack. Officials are concerned about the possibility of infections to thousands of U.S. citizens, overwhelming regional health care systems.
There could also be dire economic impacts caused by workers' illnesses and deaths. Officials are most concerned about biological agents stolen from labs or other storage facilities, such as anthrax.
"The threat of terrorism and the threat of extremist ideologies has not abated," Chertoff said in his year-end address on Dec. 18. "This threat has not evaporated, and we can't turn the page on it."
These high-consequence threats are not the only kind of challenges that will confront the U.S. during the next five years.
Terrorists will continue to try to evade U.S. border security measures and place operatives inside the mainland to carry out attacks, the 38-page assessment said. It also said that they may pose as refugees or asylum seekers or try to exploit foreign travel channels such as the visa waiver program, which allows citizens of 34 countries to enter the U.S. without visas.
Long waits for immigration and more restrictive European refugee and asylum programs will cause more foreigners to try to enter the U.S. illegally. Increasing numbers of Iraqis are expected to migrate to the U.S. in the next five years; and refugees from Somalia and Sudan could increase because of conflicts in those countries, the assessment said.
Because there is a proposed cap of 12,000 refugees from Africa, officials expect more will try to enter the U.S. illegally as well. Officials predict the same scenario for refugees from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan.
Intelligence officials predict the pool of radical Islamists within the U.S. will increase over the next five years due partly to the ease of online recruiting means. Officials foresee "a wave of young, self-identified Muslim 'terrorist wannabes' who aspire to carry out violent acts."
The U.S. has seen some examples of these homegrown terrorists. Recently five Muslim immigrants were convicted of plotting to massacre U.S. soldiers at Fort Dix in a case the government said demonstrated its post-Sept. 11 determination to stop terrorist attacks in the planning stages.
The Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah does not have a known history of fomenting attacks inside the U.S., but that could change if there is some kind of "triggering" event, the Homeland assessment cautions.
A 2008 Interagency Intelligence Committee on Terrorism assessment said that Hezbollah members based in the U.S. do local fundraising through charity projects and criminal activity, like money laundering, smuggling, drug trafficking, fraud and extortion, according to the homeland security assessment.
In addition, the cyber terror threat is expected to increase over the next five years, as hacking tools become more sophisticated and available. "Youthful, Internet-savvy extremists might apply their online acumen to conduct cyber attacks rather than offer themselves up as operatives to conduct physical attacks," according to the assessment.
Currently, Islamic terrorists, including al-Qaida, would like to conduct cyber attacks, but they lack the capability to do so, the assessment said. The large-scale attacks that are on al-Qaida's wish list — such as disrupting a major city's water or power systems — require sophisticated cyber capabilities that the terrorist group does not possess.
But al-Qaida has the capability to hire sophisticated hackers to carry out these kinds of attacks, the assessment said. And federal officials believe that in the next three to five years, al-Qaida could direct or inspire cyber attacks that target the U.S. economy.
Counterterrorism expert Frank Cilluffo says the typical cyber attack would not achieve al-Qaida's main goal of inflicting mass devastation with its resulting widespread media coverage. However, al-Qaida is likely to continue to rely on the Internet to spread its message, said Cilluffo, who runs the Homeland Security Policy Institute at George Washington University.
Officials also predict that domestic terrorists in the forms of radical animal rights and environmental extremists will become more adept with explosives and increase their use of arson attacks.

Is There a Santa Claus?

With Christmas around the corner, I thought this was appropiate...Please read for your children !

Is There a Santa Claus?
From the Editorial Page of The New York Sun,
written by Francis P. Church, September 21, 1897

We take pleasure in answering thus prominently the communication below, expressing at the same time our great gratification that its faithful author is numbered among the friends of The Sun:

"Dear Editor--I am 8 years old.
"Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus.
"Papa says, 'If you see it in The Sun, it's so.'
"Please tell me the truth, is there a Santa Claus?
Virginia O'Hanlon
115 West Ninety-fifth Street
Virginia, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the scepticism of a sceptical age. They do not believe except they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be men's or children's are little. In this great universe of ours man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus! It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias. There would be no child-like faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The eternal light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.

Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies! You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if you did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that's no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world.

You tear apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived, could tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding.

No Santa Claus! Thank God! he lives, and he lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay, ten times ten thousand years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Deadline Passes for Fraud Elect? Click here!

Excellent article by Michael Bresciani outlining the reasons the Fraud Elect is not held accountable. My opinion is that most of the American media 'SUCKS". Somehow,I don't believe this skeleton will quite fit in the Arrogant Fraud Elects closet!

Why is the media silent on the Obama birth certificate question?

Why has every major news source in the United States almost totally blacked out all reference to the Hawaiian Obama birth certificate controversy?

In layman's terms the mainstream media may be afraid of showing up with egg on its face. Yet, the question about the allegedly fraudulent COLB (certificate of live birth) doesn't want to go away. It is more than simple curiosity that is driving the quest; it is a strong desire for the truth and the hope of avoiding a constitutional crisis that would be unparalleled in our entire history as a nation.

The media recently reported Barack Obama's choice of a corned beef sandwich for his lunch. The question about his Blackberry phone has gotten more media attention than the birth certificate question. The politicos and media that follow the President Elect are looking more like the paparazzi than a group of professional journalists. What's wrong with this picture; here are a few possibilities.

Besides the obvious, like the fear of embarrassment some have suggested that it is an attitude of "possession is nine tenths of the law." He won a landslide; America has spoken so why bother with insignificant howbeit bothersome minor details. He has got the ball so let him run with it!

The idea is that winning is more important than keeping the rules is anything but American. The next time a whistle blows on the field in a NFL game won't the whole game stop in its tracks and wait for the announcement of the referee. Isn't this a far more grave matter than a flag going down in a football game?

Another possibility is that ignoring the matter will to some degree contain it. Leaving it alone will make it look like it's only a few discontented fringe groups or sore losers who are making waves and they can be ignored.

The timing might seem wrong as in who would dare proclaim out loud that they hate rock music in the middle of a Kiss concert. Conservatives it seems are loathe to become overtly vociferous while the liberals and Dem's are at the peak of the honeymoon stage and still celebrating their spectacular win.

But the timing is actually perfect because if the question is not answered until after the inauguration every executive order or law Barack Obama has enacted will be nullified. Ambassador Alan Keyes was the first one to point out this salient fact but neither the media nor the courts seem to be taking this fact too seriously at the moment.

Conservative media seems to be largely ignoring the question. Hannity has taken to airing the Roswell UFO conspiracy; Beck and O'Reilly are relatively silent while Limbaugh may be the only talk show personality who has spent any time at all on the subject.

The idea that there are only a few internet bloggers who care about it makes it seem like a trivial matter. The offering of the COLB which now appears to be fraudulent was not made in the mainstream broadcast media but on the internet (Kos) so painting it to be the rantings of a few discontented internet bloggers doesn't fly well at all. The insult if there is any, is not to internet bloggers but to the constitution and the laws of the United States. Isn't that newsworthy?

World Net Daily the largest independent conservative news source on the internet has begun to take signatures from people across the country to petition the congress to demand the vaulted copy of the Obama birth certificate. At the writing of this article signatures were coming in at the rate of 1000 per hour. Someone is paying attention and it would be absurd to think they are all just a band of sore losers and malcontents.

Alan Keyes who has filed suit in California to block the 55 electoral votes from being counted until Barack Obama verifies his citizenship is keeping the readers of his site, Renew America abreast of every effort made to uncover the truth. Renew America is not only one of the internets most popular sites but it is among the most tasteful conservative spots on the web.

This question deserves more attention for the noblest of reasons. It is about the law of our land. If we are to be a nation of laws then we all need to know our chief law maker is abiding by the laws already in place. The dignity of the Office of the President requires it and the American people deserve it.

The mainstream media may choose to keep a low profile on the matter for now but it takes no great skill in prognostication to know this. The minute the honeymoon is over and Barack Obama has made a few unpopular decisions the American public may demand to know what they think is not now very important.

Newsweek Magazine recently featured an article and a full front page cover telling how Barack Obama wants to style his presidency after Abraham Lincoln. To those who have followed the stories of Obama's past associations through the press it would seem that it is a little too late to make such a comparison. But if that is so what might Lincoln say to this subject?

Lincoln buffs and historians know all to well that it may be this famous saying from Abraham Lincoln that best speaks to the entire birth certificate controversy. "You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time."

Sooner or later all Presidents regardless of their style as a Commander in Chief have had to come to terms with the fact that this country isn't founded on any man's style. Rather it was and hopefully always will be based on the Constitution. It is the Constitution that asks the question to President Elect Barack Obama; are you a natural born citizen of these United States?

It is "we the people" who are living our lives and abiding under the laws of the constitution that are asking the President Elect if he would be willing to satisfy the question the constitution puts forth. The media may ignore this question, the courts may decide it is not relevant but the constitution will yet be answered as "we the people" say in the common vernacular "sooner or later."

La Dura Realidad - Obama's Abortion Policy

A friend sent me the following information and although very very graphic in nature I was compelled to provide you with this information . I recently had a beautiful daughter born in September of this year and I can not for a moment imagine how some animals out there are willing to kill their unborn child. At any rate, please watch the video by clicking on the link that I have provided below and if you are as outraged about this topic as I am please make your voices heard. This video has information on Obama's abortion policy. Please watch the video and be fore-warned that this video is not for everyone as it is the most shocking video on the topic of abortion that I have ever watched in my life. This video is narrated by Actor Eduardo Verastegui.





Please consider the alternative and give up the baby with no questions asked at any fire station, police department or hospital during the first 7 days after birth.

Barack- SHOW US THE RECORDS!! Obama Not a US Citizen

"O" Bama, Put Up Or Shut Up!

Obama has practically been ordered to produce a verifiable, raised seal copy of his birth certificate by The US supreme Court! We are taking bets on how many deaths and injuries will occur if Obama is "De-certified" to be the messiah, er, I mean POTUS! This should be interesting to say the least.

Supreme Court Of The United States (SCOTUS) Justice David
Souter has agreed that a review of the federal lawsuit filed by
attorney Phil Berg against BarackHussein Obama II, et al.,
which was subsequently dismissed for lack of standing
is warranted. SCOTUS Docket No. 08-570 contains the details.

A review of that docket and the Rule 10 of the Supreme Court
makes abundantly clear that Justice Souter's granting of a
review on the Writ of Certiorari is not a right entitled to citizen
Phil Berg, but rather is a matter of judicial discretion based
upon a compelling reason. That compelling reason is the
Constitutional requirement that "No person except a natural
born citizen ... shall be eligible to the office of President..."

What this means is that on or before 1 DECEMBER 2008
Barack Hussein Obama II must respond to the writ of
certiorari, and since the Berg v Obama case hinged
primarily on the question of Obama's place of birth, it is
almost inconceivable that Barack Obama will thumb
his nose at the Justices of the Supreme Court and
he is absolutely compelled to provide a vault copy his
original birth certificate.

Another very salient fact to consider at this time is that,
despite all of the pronouncements of the print and
broadcast media, Barack Obama is not yet the
President-elect of the United States. Barack Obama can
only become the President-elect after the Electoral College
convenes on 15 DECEMBER 2008 in their respective state
capitals around the nation and casts their votes to elect
the President and the Vice President. As you can see this
election day occurs two weeks after the required response
to the Supreme Court granted Writ of Certiorari.

The bottom line is this: the presidential election of 2008
remains an ongoing process, the outcome of which remains
undetermined, and all talk about a potential Constitutional
crisis in the United States are at least 36 days premature.

The inevitable constitutional crisis regarding President-elect
Obama, of course, revolves around his inability
(or unwillingness) to produce an authentic Hawaiian birth
certificate with the raised certificate stamp that the Federal
Elections Commission can independently verify.

Here are some of the unanswered issues hanging over the
head of President-elect Barack Obama and the question of
his American citizenship:

· The allegation that Obama was born in Kenya to parents
unable to automatically grant him American citizenship;

· The allegation that Obama was made a citizen of
Indonesia as a child and that he retained foreign citizenship
into adulthood without recording an oath of
allegiance to regain any theoretical American citizenship;

· The allegation that Obama's birth certificate was a forgery
and that he may not be an eligible, natural-born citizen;

· The allegation that Obama was not born an American
citizen; lost any hypothetical American citizenship he had
as a child; that Obama may not now be an American citizen
and even if he is, may hold dual citizenships with other
countries. If any, much less all, of these allegations are true,
the suit claims, Obama cannot constitutionally serve as
president.

· The allegations that "Obama's grandmother on his father's
side, half brother and half sister claim Obama was born in
Kenya," the suit states." Reports reflect Obama's mother
went to Kenya during her pregnancy; however, she was
prevented from boarding a flight from Kenya to Hawaii at
her late stage of pregnancy, which apparently was a normal
restriction to avoid births during a flight. Stanley Ann
Dunham (Obama) gave birth to Obama in Kenya, after
which she flew to Hawaii and registered Obama's birth."

The claim could not be verified by inquiries to Hawaiian
hospitals, since state law bars the hospitals from releasing
medical records to the public;

Even if Obama produced authenticated proof of his birth in
Hawaii, however, the suit claims that the U.S. Nationality
Act of 1940 provided that minors lose their American
citizenship when their parents expatriate. Since Obama's
mother married an Indonesian citizen and moved to
Indonesia, the suit claims, she forfeited both her and
Barack's American citizenship.

Hu Jintao arrives in Cuba


The president of the People’s Republic of China, Hu Jintao, arrived last night at Cuba’s International Jose Marti Airport.

He was received by José Ramón Machado Ventura, first Vice President of the Councils of Sate and Ministers of the Republic of Cuba. Also present was Felipe Perez Roque, Cuba’s Foreign Minister and other government officials of the Caribbean island and the Asian nation.

He declared that he wanted Cubans to reach new advances in the construction of Socialism and reminded everyone that Cuba was the first Latin American nation to establish diplomatic relations with China.

He received a wreath of flowers from Cuban Pioneers and watched a performance of the Dance of the Lion by the Cuban students of Wushu School.

Presidente Hu will meet Cuban president Raul Castro Ruz during his state visit. This is Hu Jintao’s third visit to Cuba. The first two were in 1997 and 2004.

A dozen bilateral agreements were signed, which strengthen the fraternal bonds between the two Socialist countries.

Bin Laden Plans New Attacks Bigger Than 9/11

Fugitive terrorist Osama bin Laden is planning new attacks against the U.S. that will "outdo by far" the attacks of 9/11, according to a report in a London-based Arabic newspaper.

The paper, Al-Quds Al-Arabi, quotes a former senior Yemeni Al-Qaida official saying the terror group is now in a “positive phase,” of staffing and rebuilding training camps around the globe. The action will lead to the next “wave of action” against the U.S., the paper reported.

“This will be shown by the fact that we now control a major part of the south of Somalia," the Yemeni source told the paper.

According to the report, bin Laden is personally involved in the preparations and is looking to "change the face of world politics and economics.”

The paper is edited by Abdel al-Bari Atwan, the last journalist to interview bin Laden in 1996.

The Yemeni operative says he remains in contact with current Al-Qaida chiefs. He claims bin Laden sent a message to all jihad cells in the Arab world six months ago urging them not to interact with their governments or local political parties.

More signs of al-Qaida’s violent intentions are expected over the next few days, the paper reported.

The al-Qaida warning comes just one day after The Telegraph newspaper published a leaked government report showing thousands of extremists are active in the U.K. The document says the operatives are mostly native Brits between 18 and 30. Many have been trained in overseas terrorist camps.

Security officials warned that al-Qaida will attempt another "spectacular" in the U.K., likely focused on airports or train stations, The Telegraph reported. Other potential targets include the Houses of Parliament, and Whitehall, Buckingham and St James' palaces.

Palin returns to '2012' chants in Alaska

Do new, embarrassing reports overshadow her homecoming?

ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Is Sarah Palin the answer for defeated Republicans? After a historic rebuke at the polls, the Republican Party is staggering into an uncertain tomorrow with the White House and Congress in Democratic hands, no certain leader in sight and its membership divided over what it means to be a Republican.
In her hometown of Wasilla in the Anchorage suburbs, "Palin 2012" T-shirts are already for sale.
When John McCain's 44-year-old running mate returned to Alaska on Wednesday night after he lost the presidential election, she was greeted at the Anchorage airport by chants of "2012! 2012!" Asked by reporters if she might run for president, Palin said, "We'll see what happens then."
Despite this exuberant homecoming, Palin’s return was somewhat overshadowed by a series of reports challenging her judgment and competency as a public servant.
Fox News Channel reporter Carl Cameron reported that within the McCain camp, there were serious doubts about her knowledge of civics and current events. “She didn't know the nations involved in the North American Free Trade Agreement. ... She didn't understand, McCain aides told me … that Africa was a continent and not a country.”
Newsweek’s “Special Election Project” reported other accusations being lobbed by campaign staffers, including new claims about Palin’s wardrobe expenditures.
Calling her shopping spree “more extensive than previously reported,” one aide told Newsweek it was like “"Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus from coast to coast.”
Staffers also accuse her of spending “tens of thousands more than the reported $150,000,” and asking low-level staffers to put purchases on their credit cards.
Newsweek also reported that during the Republican National Convention, McCain staffers Steve Schmidt and Mark Salter were greeted by a towel-wearing Palin when they arrived at her hotel room for a briefing.
"I'll be just a minute," she said, and asked them to chat with her husband in the meantime.
Sources also say that Schmidt, a strategist, was the one to veto Palin’s request to speak Tuesday night during McCain's concession speech.
Meg Stapleton, Palin's spokeswoman, responded to the reports, saying, "This is so unfortunate and, quite honestly, sickening. The accusations we are hearing and reading are not true and since we deny all these anonymous allegations, there is nothing specific to which we will respond."
Star of the ticketEver since her selection as John McCain's running mate in late August, Palin was the star of the GOP ticket, though views of her vary wildly across the political spectrum. With the Republican brand corroded and the hunt on for the next Ronald Reagan, Palin could be one of many people competing to influence Republican ideas in the post-Bush era, maybe even as the party's leader.
"Conservatives are still looking for Mr. Right. And maybe Mr. Right turns out to be Ms. Right," said Bill Whalen, a fellow at the conservative Hoover Institution.
Palin "has built-in national stature and she's beloved by conservative talk radio," Whalen said. But "does she want to be a stay-at-home mom and a stay-at-home governor, or does she want to be a player on the national stage? She has to make a choice."
She has done little to discourage speculation — begun even as McCain's campaign faded — that she could return to the ballot four years from now.
Grover Norquist, a leading conservative and president of Americans for Tax Reform, called Palin "one of five or six people who is a plausible candidate for president in 2012," along with familiar names like Mitt Romney, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
"She's in the top tier, but she's not next in line." Norquist said. Running as vice president "puts you in contention."
Any number of other Republicans may step forward. Romney, the ex-Massachusetts governor who lost the nomination this year, has restarted his political action committee. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is heading to the leadoff caucus state of Iowa on Nov. 22 to deliver the keynote address to a conservative group.
For two intense months, Palin was the youthful foil to the old, sometimes cranky McCain. She was called everything from an empty skirt to the real deal. McCain, in defeat, called her "an impressive new voice in our party."
"She's somewhat of a diamond in the rough," said former Republican National Committee member Barbara Alby, who credits Palin with energizing the ticket. "I expect she'll grow from that."
Obstacles remainBut any path toward 2012 is filled with obstacles, some of Palin's own making.
Virtually unknown outside Alaska before her nomination, Palin revealed strong — even polarizing — views on religion, abortion and gay marriage.
She became a favorite among some social conservatives, but her cringe-worthy performances in TV interviews raised questions about her competence and provided fodder for late-night comedians. Her charisma attracted tens of thousands to Republican rallies, but voter surveys found her presence tilted a majority of independents and moderates to Barack Obama.
The governor who once won a Miss Congeniality prize was McCain's muscle, thrashing the media and her Democratic rivals in the conventional vice presidential role.
Her national political persona now bears little resemblance to her image as governor, when she was known for pushing a pipeline to carry natural gas from Alaska's North Slope, a bipartisan streak and taming the state's Republican establishment.
Some see her as a possible candidate for the Senate, should a vacancy occur, which would give her a new platform for her ambitions. Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, was clinging to a narrow lead in a re-election bid after being convicted of lying on Senate financial disclosure forms. Palin and others have called for him to step aside, even if he wins.
Work to do at homeBut Palin has rebuilding to do in Alaska. Voter surveys there show she remains popular, but Democrats are now more likely to view her negatively. On Wednesday, she said she hoped to show President-elect Obama how Alaska could be a leader in energy policy.
"Everybody in Alaska is seeing her in a new light," said Jonathan Anderson, an Alaska Assembly member and a professor at the University of Alaska Southeast.
"We knew she'd been the basketball player and beauty pageant contestant — and not too much more beyond that," said Anderson, a political independent. "She's back down with the human beings now, instead of being the star. Those things are going to follow her."
Mike Cannon, 41, who works on tugboats and fishing vessels, remains a Palin fan but was surprised by her emphasis on conservative social values during the campaign. "I don't agree with a lot of that stuff," he said in downtown Anchorage, nursing a cup of coffee.
The campaign, Cannon added, "revealed more and more of her limitations."
If she wants to lead the party, she'll need to find a way to stay visible in the lower 48 states — sooner rather than later.
"There continues to be a great deal of interest in her," said New Hampshire GOP Chairman Fergus Cullen, but "interest has a shelf life."

Our future President is just a man

Taken from BabaluBlog.com

History

Do not have any other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or worship them.

Yes we have....

Our future President is just a man. I hope that the people come to realize this. He will be our President, not our god. He needs to be treated as the former and not the latter. When are leaders are treated as gods, you end up with despots.

The above having been said, Mr. Obama has been entrusted with the most powerful position in the world. He ran a brilliant campaign and lucked out with the economy. Someone told me today, "in retrospect, I wish Kerry would have won 4 years ago, then a Republican would have been elected today." He was partially right.

I hope things will be better in 4 years for the country's sake. If they are, I'll give him credit. If they are not, he needs to be a man and accept the blame. Cause at the end of the day, that's all he is, a man.

As the Wall Street Journal noted today ....

Republicans can console themselves that soon Democrats won't have George W. Bush to kick around anymore. They'll now have to take responsibility if the economy stays in recession, or if Iraq turns chaotic again after an abrupt U.S. withdrawal. Americans have entrusted Democrats with what will essentially be unrestrained power, and we'll soon see if liberals have learned to govern.

Amazing Is All I Can Say

I'm shocked and sorry to say this man is a Cuban-American !

President Bush congratulates President-elect Barack Obama and Sen. John McCain.

McCain: The End of The Journey

My Best Wishes To An American Hero !!!

Bobby Jindal is Governor of Louisiana and is the youngest governor currently serving in the nation. He was sworn into office on January 14, 2008, after receiving 54 percent of the vote in the October 2007 primary. This marked the first time that a non-incumbent candidate for governor was elected without a runoff under the current election system.
Jindal ran and was elected on a platform of ethics reform. A month after taking office, Jindal called the Legislature into a special session and put forth an aggressive agenda to make Louisiana’s ethics laws the gold standard in the nation. Jindal was successful during the historic session in passing his main reform measures of increasing financial disclosure of elected officials, prohibiting elected officials from receiving unlimited meals from lobbyists, eliminating the loophole for free cultural and sporting event tickets for elected officials, and prohibiting elected officials from entering into contracts with the state.
As a result of Jindal’s reforms, the Center for Public Integrity gave Louisiana’s new public disclosure law a 99 out of 100 points, placing the state on par with having one of the nation’s best disclosure laws. Prior to Jindal’s special session, Louisiana earned 43 out of 100 points, placing it in the bottom fifth of all states.

Castro praises Obama but doesn't endorse him
1 hour ago

HAVANA (AP) — Fidel Castro praised Barack Obama Tuesday as smarter and less warlike than John McCain, but stopped short of endorsing either U.S. presidential candidate.

Cuba's former president said he delayed weighing in until the U.S. election day so that "no one would have time to say I wrote something that could be utilized by the candidates in their campaigns."

"Without a doubt, Obama is more intelligent, cultured and levelheaded than his Republican adversary," Castro wrote in state-controlled newspapers. "McCain is old, bellicose, uncultured, of little intelligence and not healthy."

Castro, 82, has struggled with his own health problems. He has not been seen in public since July 2006. His younger brother Raul formally succeeded him as president in February.

The elder Castro also expressed skepticism about both candidates.

"Worries about the overwhelming problems of the world will not really occupy an important place in the mind of Obama and much less in that of a candidate who, as a fighter pilot, dropped dozens of tons of bombs on the city of Hanoi," he wrote, alluding to McCain's military service.

Castro also wrote that if the Republicans win due to U.S. racism, "the danger of war will increase and the opportunities for peoples to move forward will be reduced."

Redistribution of Wealth

In a local restaurant my server had on a'Obama 08' tie, again I laughed
as he had given away his political preference--just imagine the coincidence.

When the bill came I decided not to tip the server and explained to him that I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept. He stood there in disbelief while I told him that I was going to redistribute his tip to someone who I deemed more in need--the homeless guy outside.

The server angrily stormed from my sight. I went outside, gave the homeless guy $10 and told him to thank the server inside as I've decided he could use the money more.
The homeless guy was grateful.

At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment I realized the homeless guy was grateful for the money he did not earn, but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn even though the actual recipient deserved money more.

I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in concept than in practical application.

Ex-CIA Expert: Obama Took Millions in Illegal Foreign Donations

A Newsmax investigation of Obama/Biden campaign contributors, undertaken in conjunction with a private investigative firm headed by a former CIA operations officer, has identified 118 donors who appear to lack U.S. citizenship.
Some of these “red flag” donors work for foreign governments; others have made public statements declaring that they are citizens of Cameroun, Nigeria, Pakistan, Canada, and other countries.

A Newsmax sampling of about 3,400 donors also found hundreds more who showed “yellow flags” such as not having used a Social Security number or a known U.S. address. Most U.S.-born citizens are issued Social Security numbers at birth or by the time they enter kindergarten.
Under federal law, only U.S. citizens or permanent residents may donate to federal political campaigns. It is illegal for the campaigns to accept money knowingly from foreign donors.
The McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform bill of 2002 placed new restrictions on political fundraising after the scandals of 1996, when the Clinton-Gore re-election campaign was exposed for having taken millions of dollars of unregulated soft money from donors with ties to Chinese military intelligence. But even with the new laws, it remains very difficult to identify with any precision foreign money if a campaign itself does not cooperate with the Federal Election Commission and perform its own due diligence.

Until very recently, the Obama campaign had no safeguards in its online fundraising Web site designed to weed out foreign donors. Instead, its operations appeared to be designed specifically to enhance the flow of illegal money.
The Newsmax investigation focused only on donors whose names the Obama campaign disclosed, which are available to public scrutiny through the Federal Election Commission Web site.

In addition to the donations the campaign has disclosed, however, it has taken an unprecedented $218 million from donors whose names it is keeping secret, according to FEC spokesman Robert Biersack.

That money came from individuals who in theory never passed the threshold of $200, the limit the FEC set for public disclosure of a donor’s name and place of residence, so there is no way of knowing how much foreign money could be included in that amount.
For example, hidden away amidst the unprecedented $150 million Obama claims to have raised from individual donors in September was more than $42 million raised from secret donors. These donations appear in the records as a single entry under the heading, “Donors, Unitemized.”

Newsmax retained the services of former CIA operations officer Frederick W. Rustmann Jr. and a team of international forensic accounting experts to comb through Obama’s donor list to identify those who apparently aren’t U.S. citizens or residents. Rustmann, a 24 year veteran field officer, operates CTC International Group Ltd., a West Palm Beach, Fla., firm that provides business intelligence services and analysis.
Using sophisticated Internet search tools, fee-based data bases, and other public records, CTC attempted to identify Social Security numbers and U.S. addresses connected to the Obama donors. Most of these donors gave obvious overseas addresses when they made their donations, but the Obama campaign had no security screen to detect them.
“Hillary and McCain demanded proof of citizenship of all their donors,” Rustmann said. “Obama did not, so he benefitted by receiving an enormous amount of money from foreign donors who wanted to influence the U.S. election process.”
Rustmann and his investigative team expressed “high suspicions” that 118 donors flagged as “red” were not U.S. citizens.

“That’s all we can say for certain, because it’s difficult to prove citizenship with no database that lists citizens,” Rustmann said.
Typical is Victor A. of Lagos, Nigeria, who gave $500 to the campaign in May. In the FEC database, his address is listed as Ikoyi, NA. But a closer look at the actual itemized receipts filed by the campaign shows that he declared his address as 9e Awori Street Dolphin Estate, Lagos, Nigeria.
That apparently slipped by the eagle eyes of the Obama campaign’s finance team.
A survey of the Obama donor base returns 8,794 donations from individuals who gave their state as “NA.” They included donors from Bangalore, India; London; Dubai, United Arab Emirates; Lagos, Nigeria; and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Thousands more gave state abbreviations that, combined with the city addresses they listed, clearly referred to foreign countries. Examples include IT (Italy), FR (France), GR (Greece), NZ (New Zealand), JP (Japan), GA (Gaza).
Another 2,372 donors gave their state of residence as “ZZ,” with cities including Moscow, Barcelona, Beirut, London, Lausanne, Singapore, Hagatna, Gunma-Ken, Buelach, Shanghai, Geneva, Prague, Aichi-Gun, Kiev, Hong Kong, and others.
The Obama campaign claims that these donors with overseas addresses are Americans living abroad, but there is no way of knowing that for certain because the campaign has not systematically required proof of citizenship from overseas donors.
The pace of foreign donations and other questionable fundraising practices has increased during the past few weeks, even as Obama campaign spokesmen say they have closed loopholes on their Web site and changed the credit-card authorization procedures that have allowed such donations. The Federal Election Commission had flagged 16,639 potential foreign donations as of Oct. 21 that brought in $5,249,263.96 to the campaign.
Take the case of Jo Jacquet, who gave $23,065 to Obama in 23 separate contributions last month. CTC found three people with variations of the name “Jo Anna Jacquet” who had U.S. addresses and Social Security numbers. It is not clear whether this specific Obama donor is a U.S. citizen.

“Jo Jacquet” made all of her contributions on two days, alternating between $5 and $2,300 charges to a credit card.

On all of the donations, she gave her employer as “DFDFGDFG,” and her profession as “DFGDFGDFGHFGH.” None of this attracted the suspicions of the Obama campaign or of Chase Paymentech, the company that processes the Obama campaign’s credit card donations.

The FEC requested that the Obama campaign re-attribute or re-designate all of the money from “Jo Jacquet” that went beyond the $4,600 limit but did not require that it be refunded. Under campaign finance rules, the campaign can shift this money into the “Obama Victory” account, a joint fundraising committee with much higher individual limits that it operates with the Democratic National Committee.

One apparent reason for the unusual number of foreign donors who may not hold U.S. citizenship is the fact the Obama campaign turned off the security features most merchants demand for customers when doing online transactions, such as verifying the card number against the cardholder’s name and billing address.

Another major loophole is the apparent widespread use of gift cards, which notoriously have been used for money-laundering purposes, especially in places such as Russia and Ukraine, industry security analysts tell Newsmax.

Newsmax asked James Wester, a spokesman for Chase Paymentech, who was responsible for taking the unusual step of deactivating the Address Verification Service recommended by VISA USA on the Obama Web site. Such security features can be deactivated by the processing company, or at the request of the merchant, in this case, Obama for America.

Wester said that Paymentech was “not going to be issuing a statement at this time.”
VISA USA has a series of verification tools it recommends to online merchants to prevent online credit card fraud and to guarantee the security of personal credit-card information.
“Fraudsters have been known to test credit card numbers by making online donations to charitable organizations,” a credit-card industry insider told Newsmax, on condition of anonymity.

In fact, by operating as a “high-risk merchant,” the Obama campaign could put both its donors and Chase Paymentech at risk, he said.
“A legitimate online merchant or charity would call in the Secret Service or the FBI” if it saw the high fraud rates that have appeared on the Obama campaign Web site.

“If they are not taking basic security safeguards to prevent such obvious online fraud as you have found, then how can any donor have confidence that they will protect credit card information? But if cash flow is the name of the game, it doesn’t matter as long as they get the money up-front and get the job done. They can pay the fines later,” he added.

Following are a few of the individuals the Newsmax/CTC International investigation found of overseas donors. To demonstrate its compliance with FEC regulations, the Obama campaign should request proof that these individuals are, indeed, U.S. citizens;
Nasser Z. of 187 Blvd Bineau in Paris-France, “NA,” made seven donations totaling $785. CTC found no record indicating U.S. citizenship. But on Nasser’s personal blog, he states that he is of Algerian origin and lives between Paris and Dubai. He also notes that he is not registered to vote in the United States and hints that he may be an adviser to the Obama campaign on Arab relations.

Salem H. gave $200 to the campaign in March 2008, listing a London address. He said he worked as a salesman for “Anaka,” No information was found either on Haffar or his company indicating U.S. citizenship.

Essomba H. made 11 donations totaling $265. Essomba gave an address in Lyon, “NA,” and said he was unemployed but working for “Association,” the French equivalent of a community organizer. CTC found that Essomba actually worked for PDT Associates Afrikespace et Oyenga, which showed him as living in Lyon, France. His personal blog states, "I'm a Cameroonian living in France” and notes that he is not registered to vote.

Gedewon (or Gideon) G. made 32 donations totaling $1,095. Although he lists his employer as “Filtom Design Services” and his residence as Toronto, Canada, CTC could find no company with that name. Gedewon frequently posts blogs to a Web site for expatriate Eritreans, where he often promotes Obama.

Mahamane M. gave $500 to the campaign and listed his address as Niamey, the capitol of the central African state of Niger. He listed his occupation as managing director of C.N.U.T. Niger. The Public Transport Users Council, CNUT is affiliated with the prime minister’s office. In an interview, Mahamane said he is particularly interested in developing transportation resources that will help bring Niger’s extensive uranium resources to market.

Gilles M. lives in Zurich and claims to be “founder and senior consultant” of 4?ME (sic) Image Consulting. Gilles made three donations to the campaign for a total of $240.39. The campaign found him suspicious enough to return one of them in July, but kept the rest. Under FEC rules, that will bring Gilles back into the shadows, since his aggregate contributions now total less than $200.
Stamen S. of Sofia, Bulgaria, lists his profession as “Mployer” and his employer as "Employer." He has made ten donations totaling $170. CTC found no record indicating U.S. citizenship.

Francis B. . of La Creche, France, made three donations totaling $200. He is reported as being a medicine physician at Hospital-Niort and is listed. CTC found no verifiable record of U.S. citizenship.

Pedro M.,. who said he was a salesman for Intermundo in Prague, made two donations for a total of $900. CTC found no verifiable record indicating U.S. citizenship.

Sandeep M., . an investment manager at Clariden Leu, Kuesnacht, in Zurich, Switzerland, gave the maximum $2,300 allowed per election. CTC found no verifiable record indicating U.S. citizenship.

Marissa M., . a nurse living in Guatemala City, gave eight $25 donations. CTC found no verifiable record indicating U.S. citizenship.

Somine L. . declared that she worked at the French Ministry of Culture in Paris, and donated
$100. CTC found no verifiable record indicating U.S. citizenship.
Although CTC had no way of accurately evaluating the real amount of foreign donations based on the survey they did for Newsmax, Rustmann said he believe that the anecdotal evidence was clear.

“In my opinion, from what I have seen here, millions of dollars came from illegal donations, because the Obama campaign did little to vet the donors,” Rustmann said.
An earlier Newsmax estimate, based on the unusual occurrence of unrounded contributions, which fundraising experts attributed to foreign currency donations, concluded that as much as $63 million could have come from foreign sources.

A veteran investigator with the Criminal Investigative Division of the U.S. Secret Service told Newsmax on Monday that most of the donor fraud Newsmax has identified could fly under the radar of federal investigators, unless the feds received a complaint from a victim of identify fraud.

Identify fraud certainly appeared to be the case when it came to the $174,800 donated in September in the name of Manchester, Mo., resident, Mary T. Biskup. A retired insurance manager, Biksup told The Washington Post that she never gave the money to the Obama campaign, and had checked her credit-card statements and couldn’t find any trace of a charge to her account.

“We're not out a penny," Biskup said. "I gather that someone has hacked into something using other people's credit cards and putting my name on it."
The credit-card industry often covers up identify fraud, such as apparently occurred with Biskup. Credit-card companies would rather swallow losses and chargebacks than admit to consumers that criminals have cracked their security systems, insiders tell Newsmax.

FOX News Poll: McCain Closing Fast

By: Rick Pedraza

A FOX News poll released Thursday shows the race between presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama has tightened considerably, with Obama now leading McCain by just three points among likely voters, 47 percent to 44 percent.

Just last week, Obama held a 49 percent to 40 percent lead over his Republican rival, but changes in several swing states has narrowed the margin the Democratic junior senator from Illinois has over McCain.

Among likely voters who say they are independent, Obama has gone from a 9 point lead over McCain last week to just 5 percentage points.

"Independent voters have long been regarded as one of the keys to this race and these results may foreshadow a tightening in the battleground states where independents carry disproportionate weight," says Ernie Paicopolos, a principal of Opinion Dynamics Corporation.
In addition, among white Catholics, Obama has completely lost the 11-point edge he held over McCain last week to a split this week of 46 percent to 46 percent.

McCain also has considerably increased the support he receives from his own party over Obama. Fully 88 percent of Republicans now back McCain, up from 83 percent last week, while Obama’s 89 percent of support among Democrats is only slightly up from the 88 percent he was receiving last week.

Among his backers, 88 percent say they support Obama "strongly" and 12 percent "only somewhat." For McCain, 78 percent of his voters support him "strongly" and 22 percent "only somewhat."
Among those who have voted early, Obama leads 52 percent to 43 percent over McCain, and newly registered voters say they will come out for Obama by 54 percent to 38 percent.

Still Undecided?

Following the lead of Arties post about the USA's newest fighter, I thought this post would be appropriate.
The "Great Fraud" has run ads spouting about McCain not being able to use a computer implying that due to his age he is clueless about technology.The truth is John McCain cannot raise his arms normally due to the fact they were broken and not set correctly while he was a POW. I'd like to see the "Great Fraud" land a fighter on the deck of a carrier at night!

FIRST FA-22 FIGHTERS DELIVERED




These are Great In-flight Photos of the F/A-22 as the first Aircraft Delivery was being made to Langley AFB in Va. Langley is to be first Operational AFB for the F/A-22. It is a very beautiful AFB, located in a picturesque location, as you can see in these photos, near Norfolk and Hampton , Va. The Aircraft flying along with the F/A-22 in the last of these photos is the F-15, which will be replaced by the F/A-22 which is several times better than the F-15.In Actual In-flight (simulated) Combat Operations against the F-15, two F/A-22swere able to operate without detection while it went Head to Head against (8) F-15s. The F/A-22s scored Missile Hits (Kills) against all the F-15 Aircraft and the F/A-22s were never Detected by either the F-15s or Ground Based Radar. Maj. Gen. Rick Lewis said: 'The Raptor Operated Against All Adversaries with Virtual Impunity; Ground Based Systems Couldn't Engage and NO Adversary Aircraft Survived'!F/A-22-- America 's Most Advanced Fighter Aircraft for the 21st Century!!!!


They're a titanium and carbon fiber dagger. They're so advanced that if their on-board locator is switched off even our own satellites can lose track of them. They're the first military aircraft ever built that is equipped with a 'black-out button' What that means is this ...The best conditioned fighter pilots are capable of maintaining consciousness up to in the vicinity of 15+ G.

The Raptor is capable of making 22+ G turns. If someday an adversary builds a missile that is capable of catching up to one of these airplanes and a Raptor pilot sees that a strike is imminent, he hits the 'b.o.b.' and the airplane makes a virtual U-turn, leaving the missile to pass right on by.They know that in the process he'll temporarily lose consciousness, so the Raptor then automatically comes back to straight and level flight until he wakes back up.

Enjoy the Photos!

Glenn Beck: McCain Makes His Case



Glenn Beck: McCain Makes His Case
Audio Available:


October 28, 2008 - 13:17 ET
GLENN: Senator McCain.
SENATOR McCAIN: Glenn, how are you?
GLENN: I'm very good. How are you?
SENATOR McCAIN: Glad to talk to you again, Glenn.
GLENN: Are you tired yet? Are you ready for this to be over?
SENATOR McCAIN: No. It's so exciting. I was in Boxville, Pennsylvania last night. We had 5,000 people show up yelling, screaming. I'm telling you, it fires you up. I'm telling you, it just fires you up.
GLENN: I tell you, I feel fired up myself. I feel fired up with the -- I think America is finally addressing who Barack Obama really, truly is. This man is frightening with the tapes that have come out recently of him espousing Marxist ideas and talking about how the Constitution really needs to be changed.
SENATOR McCAIN: It's remarkable some of the things that he said, and I've got to -- listen, if there's one man that I'm grateful to in America today, it's Joe the plumber was standing out in his driveway.
GLENN: Oh, boy.
SENATOR McCAIN: Obama came through the neighborhood. I can't tell you the number of signs, Rose the florist, Ralph the landscaper, now all of these people show up carrying their signs. But it really is. It's the classic left liberal redistribution of the wealth. I mean, that's all it is. I mean, everybody's the -- yeah.
GLENN: Do you really think it is only that? I mean, this is so far beyond Ted Kennedy. When you have in 2001 Barack Obama saying that the Supreme Court, "Didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution when it comes to redistribution of wealth," we're not talking about the typical liberal. This is way beyond.
SENATOR McCAIN: Oh, yeah. It's very, very left. Very, very left. But, of course, that's why he's the most liberal senator in the Senate. That's why you continue -- that's why he opposed and won the filibuster, Alito and Roberts. I mean, every indication of his record is from the far left and again, it's scary -- no, it's not scary. It's just disturbing. Let me add nothing is scary in this world because I believe in America and I believe the fundamentals of America is, you know, that Americans will put checks and balances on anybody, but it is very, very disturbing to see that he has these kinds of views which have been tried in other countries and failed.
GLENN: Okay, let me be frightened for you. I have to tell you, Senator McCain, in my business I have never seen anything like what this media has done to you, your campaign, Sarah Palin, and allowed Barack Obama and Joe Biden to get away with. There was a serious reporter. She was an assistant to Peter Jennings. Barbara West in Orlando, she asked a serious question. They have blackballed her. I am wildly concerned about the Fairness Doctrine coming back in and our freedom of speech being crushed. How is that not a frightening idea?
SENATOR McCAIN: Well, if you re -- try to reinstate this Fairness Doctrine, it will kill Glenn Beck, it will kill every program that has any controversy associated with it. Willing there's no doubt about that. But how about this card check thing where he supports that a union organizer can come to a person's home and say, hey, I want to sign you up to a union, right, okay? They are going to take away the secret ballot for people as far as where they want to join unions. This is a far left agenda that's being pursued and so as far as the media's concerned, I think what was terrible is them pulling their ads. If you don't ask the right questions, we'll pull our ads and we'll deprive you of revenues. That's a remarkable problem.
GLENN: There's a story in The Wall Street Journal today about the labor unions. One study shows that the policies of the new deal extended the Great Depression. The other article today is about the Supreme Court. They decided in April of '36 to extend the Wagner Act which was pro union. They say that it went into another Depression within a Depression. The job levels went plummeting, started to disappear, unemployment moved back to 1931 levels. With this card check this is going to totally change the foundations of business and drive business into the ground, and Obama said in 2006, quote, "I owe these unions." He said this in the "Audacity of Hope". "When their leaders call, I will do my best to call them right away. I don't consider this corrupting in any way."
SENATOR McCAIN: Well, he's been frank about that and it's too bad that we haven't seen more of the actual facts. And again I have seen, especially on judges, Senator Obama take the most extreme positions and that, of course, as you say, Supreme Court decisions matter. The nominations are probably one of the most important parts of any presidency, and you tell me why Justice Alito and Justice Roberts should have been filibustered. And I've got to tell you, Glenn, I voted for Breyer and Ginsburg. I voted for them because President Clinton was elected and they were qualified. Ideologically I didn't agree with them but they were qualified. And in the case of Roberts and Alito, they were more than qualified and I was enthusiastic in both cases and he wanted to filibuster them on ideological grounds. Do you see what I mean?
GLENN: I do see what you mean. Tell me what you think this means. Yesterday we were listening to the tape of Barack Obama and he was talking about, you know, monetary equity and he was talking about the redistribution of wealth but then he went on. He also had a line, and I didn't -- I said, we've got to look into that. We looked into it overnight. He also said about justice in the courtroom needs to be looked at. He said in 2007 at a conference of Planned Parenthood, "We need someone who's got the heart, the empathy to recognize what it's like to be a young teenage mom. The empathy to understand what it's like to be poor or African-American or gay or disabled or old, and that's the criteria by which I'll be selecting my judges." Will justice be no longer blind?
SENATOR McCAIN: You know, again that's so disturbing. We should have justices that judge, only render their decisions based on one principle alone and that principle and no other and that is the Constitution of the United States of America and that's what our founding fathers had in mind, and the whole basis of our philosophy of government is that we have empathy for all of our citizens. Our judges should interpret the Constitution of the United States strictly and that's -- when they haven't, that's when we've gotten in trouble. You cited cases back in the Thirties. I can cite you cases far more recently than that, my friend.
GLENN: Senator McCain, I hear people actually write me, say to me -- I have a sister who said to me, "You know what, what's the big deal with socialism. So what. He's socialist. Why is that bad." Could you please explain why socialism is bad?
SENATOR McCAIN: It doesn't work, number one. It's been tried many times. Second of all, redistributing the wealth creates disincentives to entrepreneurship, capitalism, small business, free enterprise. If people know that their hard earned -- the fruits of their hard earned labor are going to be taken from them and given to others, then they are obviously going to have disincentives to work. The fundamentals of the free enterprise system is that less government is the best government. Now, there are times for government, in emergencies, in wars and, you know, many other areas where we can interpret it, but the fact is that government should let free enterprise, small business and capitalism function and, of course, it has to be -- has to have regulation. Of course there has to be transparency. Of course Teddy Roosevelt was right where he said unbridled capitalism leads to corruption. But let's not take people's hard earned money that they worked to save and pass on to their children or build their businesses, let's not take it away from them and give it to others. That's -- socialism is antithetical to progress and job creation and wealth, progress for all of society.
GLENN: If Teddy Roosevelt was right, then wouldn't those who were involved in corruption, shouldn't they go to jail?
SENATOR McCAIN: Yes, yes.
GLENN: Okay. So really all you need is a law, or in our case right now shouldn't the people that were engaged in nefarious -- look, let me be real honest with you. Aren't the bigger culprits or at least the same size of culprits not just in Wall Street but also in Washington D.C., isn't Barney Frank, isn't Dodd also responsible for what we're going through right now in this kind of justice, if you will, that they wanted to serve by helping people, you know, get houses that they couldn't afford and expanding and expanding and expanding?
SENATOR McCAIN: Absolutely. And they need to be held accountable and I hope on November 4th would be the first time, although given the districts and states they represent, that's going to be hard. But over time there should be hearings and there should be investigations and there should be accountability. And again, I am not a libertarian, Glenn. I believe there's a role for government. I believe our regulatory agencies need to be strengthened and consolidated and we need transparency and we need all of those things. And we need accountability. But to say that you're going to take money from one group of Americans who have worked hard all their lives and saved and invested and done the things that we want everybody to do and taken and give it to another group of Americans is wrong, and it's harmful and it will damage our future and that's really the huge difference right now between myself and Senator Obama, and I think the American people are beginning to figure that out.
GLENN: Senator McCain, I hope this is -- this may be, because of the election, the last time that we speak. I hope this is not the last time we speak, sir.
SENATOR McCAIN: We'll be talking, my friend. You're too colorful.
GLENN: You know, you always say something -- I think he just slammed me. I think he just slammed me.
SENATOR McCAIN: No. You generate debate and discussion in America, and we need it. We need debate and discussion, whether you and I or others disagree, we need healthy, respectful debate and that's what you generate in America, Glenn, and I'm proud of ya.
GLENN: I appreciate that, sir. I will tell you that I hope that America can count on your support for the Fairness Doctrine, against the Fairness Doctrine for a long time.
SENATOR McCAIN: Not to worry.
GLENN: Thank you, sir.
SENATOR McCAIN: I have done that for a long time, my friend. Thank you, my friend. Talk to you soon. Bye.

Wisdom Beyond His Years !

From time to time we post articles and videos on Cubanazos which have nothing to do with Cuba politics because of their message. This is one of those which has a powerful message!

A remarkable phone call from a 12-yr old boy to the Houston radio station, KSBJ FM 89.3 . . . So profound, the station has it posted on their website.

Logan Henderson (12-years old at the time) is from a very small town in Nebraska. He listens to Christian radio station 89.3FM KSBJ which broadcasts from Houston, Texas via Sky Angel**. Logan called the radio station distraught because he had to take down a calf . The conversation is with the radio annoncer Mike Kankelfritz, Morning Show Host from KSBJ. Logan's words have wisdom beyond his years.

We Are Saved!

Sadly, it's looking more and more like these "clowns' will get in. There is no underestimating the stupidity of those who would elect a pretentious, unqualified, arrogant fraud to the presidency. Click above to see how bad it has become.

This will go down as the most significant election in US history. One way or the other.

We will see widespread revolt and violence if "O"bama loses. Screams of voter fraud and racism will ring through the smoke of riots.

And we will see the results of the first Socialist regime in American history. A system that has failed everywhere it's been implemented.

I don't know which will be worse.

HISTORY CONDENSED!

It is very sad to see the possible leader of this country, made by the media, elected by the media but not scrutinized by the same! If you are not concerned with Obamas vision for the US, you are not paying attention. Or you are a sympathizer of Socialism.

Whether you realize it or not, there is NO getting around it. McCain has many faults, but above all he is a proven, true patriot and his closet is not rattling with the type of skeletons trying to break out of Obamas while the media pushes with their backs against the door.

Have you considered a different viewpoint? Perhaps Obama is not attracted by the world views of the Ayers and the Wrights etc. MAYBE THEY ARE ATTRACTED TO OBAMAS!

Sad that many will condemn Michael Moore and Sean Penn for hating the U.S. and what it stands for, but will jump quickly on the same leftist bandwagon as Moore and Penn when they endorse a Socialist! We are in for a rude awakening I'm afraid.

Here is the explanation of the two parties in a nutshell.

Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters/gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter.

The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:

1. Liberals and

2. Conservatives.

Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed.

Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to B-B-Q at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement.

Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the Conservatives by showing up for the nightly B-B-Q's and doing the sewing, fetching, and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement.

Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. The rest became known as girlie-men. Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that Conservatives provided.

Over the years, Conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass.

Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare. Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of their women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywood and group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat.

Conservatives drink domestic beer, mostly Bud. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are firemen, big-game hunters, rodeo cowboys, mechanics, lumberjacks, medical doctors, police officers, corporate executives, athletes, members of the military, airline pilots and generally anyone who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other Conservatives who want to work for a living.

Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when Conservative were coming to America . They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing.

Here ends today's lesson in world history.

It should be noted that a Liberal may have a momentary urge to angrily respond to this post, while a Conservative will simply laugh.

Money Laundering Scandal?

The "O" Bama/Acorn thing just will not go away! The link I provided above tells of an investigation which began back in August! Anyone hear of it from the MSM clowns? Not I. It's very enlightening and could blow "O" Bamas fraudulent candidacy right out of the water!

BETTER BE TOUGH IF YOU'RE GONNA BE STUPID!

I am continually (and depressingly) amazed at how stupid, idiotic, myopic and did I mention stupid, some people can be. How can ANYONE in their right mind overlook the associations Obama has had with Wright, Ayers, ACORN etc, and NOT realize that he is of the same mindset as they? I am not going to rehash, ala Hannity, all of these SCUMBAGS exploits, but I will give you a synopsis courtesy of www.whyareyouvoting.com. And for those of you that still don't get it, IDIOTS!

I Support McCain !!!

IT'S TIME TO VOTE FOR McCain PEOPLE !!!
