The Perfect Stranger

By Charles Krauthammer

WASHINGTON — Barack Obama is an immensely talented man whose talents have been largely devoted to crafting, and chronicling, his own life. Not things. Not ideas. Not institutions. But himself.

Nothing wrong or even terribly odd about that, except that he is laying claim to the job of crafting the coming history of the United States. A leap of such audacity is odd. The air of unease at the Democratic convention this week was not just a result of the Clinton psychodrama. The deeper anxiety was that the party was nominating a man of many gifts but precious few accomplishments — bearing even fewer witnesses.

Gustav and Other Evidence of Weather Control

In previous hurricanes like Ivan, geometric shapes were observed in the eye of the storm. One such shape with Ivan was a pentagon-shaped opening in the eye:

The implications of weather control gone wrong are horrific when people die and property is destroyed. All this just to prove weather control technology works? This is madness. In order for the Pentagon to control the world’s weather in a few years as they have boldly promised, weather control experiments to refine the technology will have to be underway now. Ivan, Katrina, Gustav and Floater 08L appear to provide evidence of at least several such attempts.

(Ron) Paul: McCain, Obama ‘no difference’

Congressman Ron Paul says there is ‘no difference’ between US presidential candidates, Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain.

“Their foreign policies are identical,” the Texas congressman said in an interview with CNN on Thursday. “There’s no difference.”

“They want more troops in Afghanistan. They want to send more support to Georgia to protect the oil line there. Neither one says bring home the troops from Iraq from the bases — you know the bases are going to stay there, the embassy as big as the Vatican, that’s going to remain. So their foreign policies are exactly the same,” he added.

The former Republican presidential candidate said that the two candidates are both threats to the US national interests.

AMERICA JUST DOESN’T HAVE ENOUGH ILLEGAL ALIENS By Frosty Wooldridge

Colorado Representative Douglas Bruce presented this approach to the massive illegal alien invasion of Colorado as follows. Colorado General Assembly; HB-1325 by Rep. Douglas Bruce: THE ALIEN IMPORTATION ACT OF 2008.

Note; the author, an official Member of the Colorado House of Representatives, was not allowed to offer this commentary on the floor. The Speaker of the House, Representative Andrew Romanoff, prevented the action. The subject legislation was offered by Representative Marsha Looper, in behalf of her local electorate. The Colorado General Assembly has always invited and encouraged discussion on each bill, until this day. Here is the brilliant tongue-in-cheek floor-speech that was prevented.

“Thank you for offering this important bill, Representative Looper.”

Doug Bruce said, “Immigration is a very hot topic. Every time I go to Wal-Mart, I have constituents approach.

They say,

“Doug, you have to do something about immigration.

“The lines are too short at hospital emergency rooms. My children don’t hear enough foreign languages in the classroom or during recess. Our school taxes aren’t high enough to pay for building new classrooms for our guests. Our jails are not completely full.

OBAMA’S GARDEN PARTY By Coach Dave Daubenmire

OBAMA’S GARDEN PARTY

By Coach Dave Daubenmire

I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends
A chance to share old memories and play our songs again.
When I got to the garden party, they all knew my name
No one recognized me, I didn’t look the same
.

People came from miles around, everyone was there
Yoko brought her walrus, there was magic in the air…
If you gotta play at garden parties, I wish you a lotta luck
But if memories were all I sang, I’d rather drive a truck
. Rick Nelson 1972

I probably will never qualify as a political pundit. You know what I mean, the cadre of nobodies who parade as “experts” on the “news” programs on TV who are really nothing more than hand-picked political hacks. They are not experts, they are sheep-herders. They are hired to shape public opinion and to influence what was once a free-thinking American populace.

Today, Americans are nothing but sheep, waiting to be herded, and eventually to be sheared. That is the goal of the “experts.” They decide, you report. How else could we possibly have McCain and Obama?

My positions are clear. I will not vote for a political party. I vote for a candidate. I’m in no one’s pocket. Neither man gets my vote.

LOW CHOLESTEROL INCREASES CANCER AND DEATH RISK By Byron J. Richards, CCN

LOW CHOLESTEROL INCREASES CANCER AND DEATH RISK

By Byron J. Richards, CCN

In a major shot fired across the bow of the statin marketing machine, the levels of LDL cholesterol that are the artificial targets of “health” promoted by the American Heart Association (AHA) are now found to be associated with a significant increased risk of cancer and death.

The AHA recommends an LDL level of 100 for prevention and 70 for high risk patients. In the new study an LDL level of 107 was associated with a 33% increased risk of cancer and death, an LDL level of 87 was associated with a 50% increased risk. As the LDL goes lower the risk keeps getting worse. These arbitrary AHA levels for LDL cholesterol were established by “experts” with direct financial ties to the statin industry, who knew full well that reaching their artificially low target levels for LDL would require double and triple doses of statin drugs, thus dramatically increasing sales (which has indeed happened).

The Vytorin fraud has pointed out quite clearly that lowering LDL cholesterol to very low levels does not reduce cardiovascular disease. Another Vytorin study also shows doing so increases cancer risk by 64%. The new study paints the clear picture that lowering LDL too low actually increases the rate of death from any cause. This new study also points out the statistical shenanigans that the statin industry uses to hide the actual risks of these drugs in the studies that have been published.

Democrats will kneel before the “Temple of Obama” tonight.

TEMPLE OF DEM ON MT. O-LYMPUS

Democrats will kneel before the “Temple of Obama” tonight.

As if a Rocky Mountain coronation were not lofty enough, Barack Obama will aim for Mount Olympus when he accepts his party’s nomination atop an enormous, Greek-columned stage – built by the same cheesy set team that put together Britney Spears’ last tour.

John McCain’s campaign mocked the massive neoclassical set created for Obama’s speech at 75,000-seat Invesco Field. Some Republicans have dubbed it the “Barackopolis,” while others suggested the delegates should wear togas to fit in among the same Doric columns the ancient Greeks believed would stroke the egos of Zeus and Athena.

“It’s only appropriate that Barack Obama would descend down from the heavens and spend a little time with us mere mortals when accepting the Democratic nomination,” said Republican National Committee spokesman Danny Diaz.

The McCain campaign quickly dispatched a memo calling the stage the “Temple of Obama.”
