“60 Minutes“: The Real Unemployment Rate Is 17%CBS: “The national unemployment rate of 9.5% percent sounds incredibly high and of course, it is. But, it doesn’t nearly capture the depth of the trouble. It doesn’t count the people who’ve seen their hours cut to part-time, it doesn’t count the people who’ve quit looking for work. If you add all of that together, the unemployed and the underemployed, it’s not 9.5% percent, it’s 17% and here in California it’s 22%.”
In an astonishing invasion of privacy, it admitted entire emails, web pages and even passwords were ‘mistakenly collected’ by antennae on its high-tech Street View cars…The Information Commissioner’s Office said it would launch a new investigation. Scotland Yard is already considering whether the company has broken the law.Google executive Alan Eustace issued a grovelling apology and said the company was ‘mortified’, adding: ‘We’re acutely aware that we failed badly.’…Google sent a fleet of specially equipped cars around Britain in 2008, armed with 360-degree cameras to gather photographs for its Street View project…Privacy fears followed when it emerged that individuals could be seen, including a man emerging from a sex shop in London’s Soho, three police officers arresting a man in Camden, North London, and children throwing stones at a house in Musselburgh, Scotland.Earlier this year the California-based firm admitted that the cars’ antennae had also scanned for wireless networks, including home wi-fi, which connect millions of personal computers to the internet.Google registered the location, name and identification code of millions of networks and entered them into a database to help it sell adverts…Google played down the significance of the wi-fi mapping and insisted it had not collected or stored data from personal computers.
It then backtracked and said its software had ‘inadvertently’ collected fragments of data which were being transmitted as the cars criss-crossed Britain.The cars’ antennae skipped networks five times a second, it said, meaning each network was only accessed for one-fifth of a second.
But it has now emerged that entire emails, web pages and passwords were copied and stored during that split-second.The information was only gathered from wireless networks which were not password-protected.

received a call from a person who is trying to provide awareness for this bill, HR-5741. This bill will give Obama complete power over all draft age persons 18-45 My question is, do you think this is a valid concern when the Senate votes on this after the elections perhaps during the holidays I am also sending this to many candidates to help me understand if this could be passed as a part of the lame duck after the election.
Would the senate really enrage the people and pass this in a lame duck. I am looking for input as to whether I forward to everyone, as I think this would really upset people. And I want to make sure that this is a valid concern. In breif this is what power would be given to the president: To re-instate the draft To draft all persons – everyone from the ages of 18-42 to serve in some capacity for 2 years for the government To allow the president to create his National Security Force from the enlistments
When Barack Obama was elected president, many of us were able to suspend disbelief that someone with as little leadership experience could gain the White House. This was made easier by the most anemic Republican campaign since Bob Dole ran for office.We put aside candidate Obama’s less-than-savory personal associations and inexperience and gave the newly elected president the benefit of doubt because of a hope that maybe, just maybe, this charismatic personality, the first black president in the history of the land, would truly unite the country, both racially and in a spirit of bipartisan middle-of-the-road politics.
This is what was promised the nation, and Obama deserved a chance to live up to his rhetoric.Two years later, Americans know the truth. Together with Democratic majorities in both houses of Congress, Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have slingshot the country so far to the political left that it was only a few months into Obama’s presidency that our nation witnessed the rebirth of conservatism.Said to be dead and buried by a fawning and sympathetic media and other politicos, conservatism, as represented by a broad spectrum of public grassroots movements, has arisen from interment to the point that, according to Democratic pollster Peter Hart in Wednesday’s Wall Street Journal, “It’s hard to say Democrats are facing anything less than a Category 4 hurricane.
“Nonetheless, races are tightening as we get closer to Nov. 2. This comes as no surprise since we now live in a country where allegiance to political correctness reshapes us in a mold of moral relativity, and worship for big government and entitlements has gotten to the point where the members of the left in America are so politically wedded to the false hopes of liberalism that they refuse see that French, English, Irish and German governments are bankrupt and reining in runaway deficit spending on entitlements as fast as they can. One wonders, does the left read newspapers?
So if Republicans reclaim the House of Representatives, and less likely the Senate, Democrats will have nobody to blame but themselves. There was no mandate for Obama, Pelosi and Reid to shove America so far to the left.That’s why Democrats are losing independents. They gave Obama the benefit of doubt with their vote, and he has betrayed them with a far-left political agenda, the signature legislation being a massive and disastrous health care entitlement bought and paid for by Pelosi’s political threats and bribery.
In a race that has attracted national attention, retired Lt. Col. Allen West has taken a narrow lead over Democratic incumbent Rep. Ron Klein in South Florida’s 22nd Congressional District, according to a new poll.West drew became known to WND readers in 2003 when the Army prosecuted him for bold interrogation tactics he used to protect his soldiers in Iraq.
Amid his controversial ordeal, he drew support from congressmen and many Americans who regarded him as a hero.West lost by 10 points to Klein in 2008, but he leads the Democrat 47-44 in the survey of likely voters conducted Oct. 17-19 by Voter Survey Service and commissioned by Sunshine State News.”West has to be the slight favorite here simply because of the turnout differential,” Jim Lee, president of Voter Survey Service, told Sunshine State News.West’s passionately delivered emphasis on constitutional principles of liberty, fiscal responsibility, strong national defense and free-market solutions has attracted an audience well beyond Florida‘s 22nd district.Story continues below A video of his rally cry to the party base in preparation for his 2010 run has generated more than 2 million hits on YouTube.com.
See Allen West’s speech:
Judicial elections across the United States, largely ho-hum affairs that only stand out when members of the black robes commit a crime, have turned white-hot in Iowa, where residents are organizing and campaigning to fire three of the state Supreme Court members who created same-sex marriage for the state.Supporters of the judges – Marsha Ternus and Justices David Baker and Michael Streit – are countering with arguments that Iowans who want the three removed from office have abandoned the rule of law and become “the mob.
“But former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore, who was removed from office himself when state officials refused to allow him to challenge an order he considered illegal, said the judges in Iowa didn’t even follow their own state law – which defined marriage as between a man and a woman. Instead, Moore said, they joined advocates for homosexuality in calling such couples “similarly situated” to traditionally married couples.Understand the dark side of what’s really happening in America. Read “HOW EVIL WORKS”– autographed!That view is accurate, said Moore, who runs the Foundation for Moral Law, only if one cannot tell the difference between a man and a woman.
The justices’ stance, he suggested, is why polls show they could be ejected from their highly paid positions of influence, even though they usually are the benefactors of approval from 80 percent or 90 percent of the voters.Several polls show that support for the three is running only percentage points above the portion of the citizenry already committed to voting them out. Several polls suggested the small percentage of undecideds probably ultimately will be the deciding factor.

Already the United Nations has put out its bid to control the Internet. Other countries say that the US should not have front seat.But within the US there is already the move to oust conservative, biblical posts and sites.
Google is run by pro-liberal Democrats. Fill in the blanks.The day will come when the Anti-Christ political leader will snuff out all sane, Christian-moral based sites on the Internet.
When the Book of Revelation speaks of the Anti-Christ prohibiting Christians from buying and selling, that could very well be interpreted as Christians “buying and selling” on the Internet as well as merchandising at the local mart.The Anti-Christ, controlled solely by Satan, will attack all genuine believers, killing many. Now this is happening because of the “spirit of Anti-Christ” set loose, the latter predicted in John’s three short letters in the New Testament.
The “spirit of Anti-Christ” precedes the actual appearance of the demon-dominated mortal known in the Book of Revelation as the “beast” — the Anti-Christ in person.

Ambivalence of Warby Charley Reeseby Charley ReeseDIGG THIS”It is well that war is so terrible,” Gen. Robert E. Lee said, “or else we might grow too fond of it.”"War is hell,” Gen. William T. Sherman said to a graduating class of a military school.
So statements by the last of the Christian knights and the first of the 20th-century warriors Sherman was ahead of his time illustrate the ambivalence that war causes. It is, especially seen from a distance or through the sanitized lenses of America‘s lap-dog television networks, an exciting adventure. It is the ultimate sport – the animal kingdom’s most ferocious predators locked in a struggle to the death. Brave young men risking all to fight for their country – or so they’ve been told, though the real reasons are usually quite different. It is a natural impulse to cheer for our side.But as much as I love Lee and despise Sherman, Sherman was right.
The glory of war is all moonshine. It is pure hell. That’s why the American networks censor, without even being told, the ugly images of war. That was the case when they decided not to air the pictures of dead Americans that Iraqi television made available and that were broadcast globally by Al-Jazeera, the independent Arab television network.That was the wrong decision. It is not the job of journalists to protect the sensitivities of people or to participate in American propaganda.
Those ugly pictures of young Americans, their faces mutilated by bullets and shrapnel, are the true face of war. That’s what war is: death, mutilation and destruction. Why hide from Americans what they wanted? The polls say 70 percent or more support war. Well, you should be willing to look at what you support – all of it, not just a censored, prettified version of it.Yes, indeed, it is horribly hard on families who lose loved ones or see them taken into captivity by an enemy that we know is both dangerous and often brutal.
That’s why I actively discouraged all three of my children from joining the military, even though I served in the Army. Politicians start wars, and I no longer trust American politicians to do the right thing. In fact, I’m 95 percent certain that a majority of them will do the wrong thing. They waste precious American lives and think they can get away with it by uttering that awful cliché “our heart goes out to …” What the hell does that mean? Whether your heart goes out or stays in isn’t going to the ease the pain of loss, restore life or heal the mutilated.
After you’ve sent young people to war, it’s too late to be sorry when they get killed.
Disturbed that many on the left have given up on Obama, the US Communist Party urged “progressives” to “not lose faith.” “While some might be disappointed that capitalism is still standing we should not dismiss the very real progress that President Obama and Congress have made toward the goal of its eventual demise,” wrote the editors of People’s World Newspaper, Official Organ of Communist Party USA.
“We would have liked to see a total nationalization of health care, too,” the editors wrote. “But we must be patient. Private insurers are already pulling out of certain sectors in response to the President’s health care legislation. As other portions of the law take effect in coming years more of these private providers will be driven out of the business. And the new rules requiring those with medical savings accounts to get approval from government recognized physicians before they can spend their money deals a significant blow to the antisocial idea that individuals should make their own health care decisions.”“Sure, the stimulus spending should have been bigger,” the editors continued.
“But let’s not overlook the fact that trends have been put in place that will eventually eliminate the dollar as a medium of exchange. This will wipe out the value of capitalists’ hoards of money and level the playing field for all.”While the editors still characterized the historic triumph of communism as “inevitable” they also warned that “a Republican victory in this election will slow the momentum toward the progressive society we have all worked so hard to bring about for so many years. Republican promises to staunch the red ink, save the middle class, and preserve freedom will ultimately fail, but giving them the mandate to try prolongs the agony and delays the arrival of that happy day when the last capitalist is hanged and his wealth is distributed to the masses.”In related news, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pleaded with voters to “return a Democratic majority to Congress so we can continue our work toward a redistribution of the nation’s wealth into more equitable shares.”read more…
Obamas Competing: Who can Spend more of the Taxpayer Dollars on Extravagant Trips?| The Post & Email
WHERE IS THE MONEY COMING FROM?by Sher Zieve, ©2010If her husband is ineligible, is she the “First Lady” of deception?Oct. 24, 2010 —
As Obama & Co. continues to find new and innovative ways to strip the American people of all that they have, the extent of latest vacation-dollars theft by the Obamas is just being made known; although the exact amount is yet to be realized and may be altered or concealed from the American people. How many vacations does that now total for our dictator-in-chief?
This time, Obama’s partner-in-crime Michelle of the now-infamous Michelle-family-and-entourage trip to Spain will be accompanying him to India. So, with both of them competing simultaneously, I suspect we will see massive expenditures from each as their competitive streaks to bleed us dry–in every way they can imagine–continue. Question: Is anyone still wondering why Barack and Michelle are still smiling broadly while the rest of us are ordered to shut up and learn to enjoy our newly-forced and impoverished slavery? Really…anyone?

excerpts from the book
With No Apologies
The Personal and Political Memoirs of United States Senator Barry M. Goldwater, 1979
Pg. 128: “The CFR is the American branch of a society which originated in England. Internationalist in viewpoint, the CFR, along with the Atlantic Union Movement and the Atlantic Council of the United States, believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule established.”
“In its September 1, 1961 issue, the Christian Science Monitor described the Council on Foreign Relations as “probably one of the most influential, semipublic organizations in the field of foreign policy.” The Monitor said, ‘The CFR is composed of 1,400 of the most elite names in the world of government, labor, business, finance, communication, the foundations, and the academies. It has staffed almost every key position of every administration since that of FDR.’”
Pg. 277 – 278:
“In September 1939, two members of the Council on Foreign Relations, Hamilton Fish Armstrong and Walter H. Mallory, visited the State Department to offer the council’s services. They proposed to do research and make recommendations for the department without formal assignment or responsibility, particularly in four areas – security armaments, economic and financial problems, political problems, and territorial problems The Rockefeller Foundation agreed to finance the operation of this plan.
After watching doctors fail to cure his father’s cancer and then trying himself to find the answer through six years of biomedical cancer research, Almadeus Star Gioeli immersed himself in classic mysticism.
Years later, during a prayerful fasting retreat, Gioeli finally experienced a comprehensive revelation about cancer that he later detailed in his book Cancer Is Good for You. Gioeli felt that he understood not only the cause and cure for cancer but also the nature of cancer itself.
Gioeli suggests that a toxin-challenged body, which is the result of an unhealthy lifestyle, habits, and environment, is programmed with the intelligence to create a new organ, a tumor, to normalize unhealthy blood chemistry.The tumor does this “by transforming the noxious chemical[s] into a product which can be managed by the other normal organs and tissues or utilized by other cells, organs, or systems.”
“And the product created by the new organ [tumor] may be excreted or secreted out of the blood stream and out of the body. Sometimes, the tumor itself is an excretory organ, which dumps toxins out of the skin or into the bowels,” writes Gioeli. Gioeli coined the term “organomutagenesis” to replace the word “cancer.” “In extreme cases of life-threatening blood disorder or toxicity, the radical biological response of organomutagenesis is predictable.
Organomutagenesis is a biological, programmed process of creating a unique, original organ [a tumor] to correct the disorder or toxicity.“The survival-motivated process has been misdiagnosed as cancer for decades, if not centuries. Malignancy occurs when organomutagenesis fails to produce a successful new organ. Mutated cells, individually or in the form of tumors, are not the cause of death.
They are a symptom of toxicity or other blood disorder,” Gioeli told me in an interview.While detoxifying one’s body to cooperate with the intent of the cells to correct abnormal blood chemistry will improve chances of remission, not also changing one’s life will just increase the problem.“There are limitations to the successful development and ultimate function of a [benign] tumor in terms of quantity of abnormal substrate which needs to be transformed. It is possible for the level of abuse or toxicity to exceed the capacity of a potential tumor to manage, process, and transform.
I mean, all we now have to do is to run to this Judge in Alaska and point out that if Joe Miller‘s confidential personnel file from a prior employer needs to be made public because running for Senate is so important, certainly we are entitled to more information about Obama than he tells us in his books, right?
From the Anchorage Daily News, Judge orders Miller documents released:In an unusual weekend hearing, retired Superior Court Judge Winston Burbank ruled that the public’s right to know about candidates outweighed Miller’s right to privacy.”I hold that although Mr. Miller has a legitimate expectation of privacy in those documents, Mr. Miller’s right to privacy is indeed outweighed by the public’s significant interest in the background of a public figure who is running for the U.S. Senate,” the judge said.
He noted that U.S. senator is among the highest elected offices in the nation.This makes perfect sense on the face of it.Alaska, here we come.
Mountain Roads, Take Me HomeIn the unlikely event that home still existsOctober 24, 2010It may have been the summer of ’85, or may not have been, when I hitchhiked out of Washington, DC, which is the left ventricle of the heart of darkness, toward the coal fields of West Virginia.
I was then on the low end of respectability, as I hope I still am. As a veteran of the long-haul thumb in the Sixties, hitchhiking seemed a reasonable way to travel.As the sun dropped low the land grew rumpled and stood on edge, green and forever with the blue undercast of the mountains.
I saw a man with a lawnmower on a rope, which he paid out to mow a front lawn sloping at a steep angle. He’d pull it back up, step sideways, and let it roll back down for another swath. West Virginia is a whole ‘nuther place, with respect to anywhere.Deep in the mountains we pulled into Bluefield, where I was born.
I forget who “we” was. A hitchhiker’s memories are made of snapshots, visions, anecdotes, and oddballs, none associated with time or each other. Bluefield was poor and bedraggled, a city more at home in the Forties that had never quite left them. Coal dust lay over wooden houses, or maybe it was just the ghost of coal dust past. For someone who didn’t like the modern world, it felt right.I found the hotel. It was old, old and plain, and maybe it didn’t really smell of coal.
It didn’t belong to a chain. I checked in and walked to a bar nerby, where a couple of men in work clothes were drinking: tall, gaunt, angular, with the facial planes of the Scots-Irish. They reminded me of crab fishermen on the Potomac when I was a kid…

Obama’s Failure Agenda
By Alan Caruba Full Story
Normally, we assume that anyone who runs for and assumes the office of president has an agenda intended to succeed and thereby ensure that history will look favorably on his accomplishments. The men who served in that office craved success and loathed failure.
Barack Obama didn’t merely promise hope and change. On June 3, 2008 in his nomination victory speech, he said that “this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal…”

The ongoing issue of President Obama’s refusal to release his long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate got a comedic jolt in the arm last night during the opening sketch of “Saturday Night Live,” which featured a call for Obama to finally make it public.
The NBC program premiered a skit in which Obama, portrayed by comedian Fred Armisen, was campaigning in Las Vegas this weekend for Sen. Harry Reid, played by Paul Brittain.”Neither of us is very popular in this state,” Reid confided in the president before addressing a crowd of supporters in the parody.”I thought I was,” responded Obama.”It would really help if I could put some distance between us,” muttered Reid, alluding to Obama’s plummeting popularity and not wishing to be dragged down.Get the free, in-depth special report on eligibility that could bring an end to Obama’s presidency
Then, as part of pair’s effort to create “distance,” Reid and Obama got into this exchange:Reid: “On a number of issues, we have number of disagreements.”Obama: “That’s right. We do.”Reid: “For one thing, I don’t understand why, if you were born in this country, you won’t just show us your birth certificate. I mean, is that too much to ask?
“Obama: “You’re right! I probably should!”Reid: “Just seems people have a right to know.”Obama: “You make a good point.”Ironically, the spoof aired just a few hours after a real-life rally was held at the U.S. Capitol, pulling no punches in declaring President Obama an “imposter” and “fraud” who should resign before a constitutional crisis of his own making rips apart the nation.
Turn up the heat! Support the national billboard campaign that asks the simple question, “Where’s the birth certificate?”

Byrnes, has been a member of the CFR. Almost without exception the members of the CFR are united by a congeniality of birth, economic status, and educational background.
“Pg. 278:”I believe that the Council on Foreign Relations and its ancillary elitist groups are indifferent to communism. They have no ideological anchors. In their pursuit of a new world order, they are prepared to deal without prejudice with a communist state, a socialist state, a democratic state, a monarchy, an oligarchy – its all the same to them.
“Pg. 278:”Rear Admiral Chester Ward, USN Retd., who was a member of the CFR for sixteen years, has written, ‘The most powerful clique in these elitist groups have one objective in common – they want to bring about the surrender of the sovereignty and the national independence of the United States.’”

Obama has utterly failed.
He launched an entire presidency upon a tissue of lies, excuses, ignorance and a prickly cult of self-worship. But this proved so unstable it gave way beneath him mere weeks into his tenure.
Now he free-falls into oblivion.
Future historians might craft “theories”—obscuring his incompetence, blaming it onto outside forces or resolute foes. But those who witnessed his malfeasance know better.What was Barack’s biggest mistake? Laying all his chips on the table to bet on Liberalism. He was either too untutored to know socialism always fails; too cagey in craftily sabotaging Capitalism; not mentally fit for the task, or too indifferent to care.
Take your pick. Since all of Oabama’s possible strategies would still lead to utter failure, it doesn’t much matter. He’s an anti-Reagan in almost every way possible to imagine.Barack willed himself onto the shipwreck rocks, perhaps goaded by self-loathing animated by the secret knowledge he lacks any training or inclination for leadership.
But wouldn’t any Marxist worth his salt agree Capitalism must be torn down and burnt to cinders before communism can rise on its ash?
But what is Liberalism and why did it fail Obama?
WHO IS THE BEAR, AND WHO ARE THE SHEEP?

(Oct. 24, 2010) —
Thus from about the 1860s, Russia was shepherded into a European-style socio-political revolutionary mindset that paved the way for the actual revolution in 1917.But as with all revolutions, unexpected consequences set in. In retrospect, the revolutionaries should have seen it coming. Older Russians, even those sympathetic to the revolution, always had a disdain for the French and their moral depravity, as evidenced in the works of authors like Tolstoy and Turgenev.
Very shortly after the revolution, this titillating sexual apéritif that had provided a kind of euphorigenic drug, numbing the masses to the otherwise less-palatable realities the blood baths and internecine warfare that led to the murder of thousands, including the czar and his family, was quickly swept away, supplanted by a rigid totalitarianism intolerant of the young idealists and their romantic notions of free love and Parisian-like communes.
Anyone nourishing hopes of restoring the cherished libertinism was crushed. Some went to prison, others were murdered, others simply disappeared…

Exclusive: Stephen Broden Talks With The Blaze About Relationships, Rights, and Revolution
The Blaze ^ | October 24, 2010 | Jonathon M. SeidlPosted on Sunday, October 24, 2010 10:34:11 AM
Stephen Broden’s desk at his campaign headquarters in Desoto, TX hangs a painting of a child covered in an American flag. “Have you thought about freedom lately?” the picture asks. Considering the recent controversy surrounding Broden, one could say the answer for him is undoubtedly “yes.”Broden is the Dallas-area politician and pastor who was quoted by local media as saying that violent revolution is an option that is “on the table,” especially if he and fellow Republicans lose in November. But those comments, he says in an exclusive interview with The Blaze, have been starved of their full context, causing a national backlash that has been painfully echoed by some of his friends.The controversy started on Thursday when WFAA-TV interviewed the U.S. House candidate in Texas’s 30th district about some past comments.
Those remarks included a statement in 2009 regarding the way to go about changing inadequate leaders: “We have a constitutional remedy here, and the framers said if that don’t work — revolution.”WFAA’s Brad Watson asked Broden if he stood by the remarks, and reported Broden’s response as follows: Broden said Thursday that revolution, in his view, first comes at the ballot box.
But he said violent overthrow is an option. “Our nation was founded on violence; the option is on the table,” he said. “I don’t think that we should ever remove anything from the table as it relates to our liberties and our freedoms.”Cue all hell breaking loose. Worlds colliding. Jaws dropping. Arms flailing. Cue Stephen Broden wondering how what he thought he made so clear could be portrayed so poorly.Broden doesn’t deny he talked about revolution on Thursday.
He doesn’t deny he said overthrowing the government is “on the table.” He did, and he still believes it. But he does deny that he said such an option should be considered now, at this time, or in the near future.What hasn’t been reported are the words he said in addition to the ones that have now become infamous. Words that make it clear he‘s not advocating an imminent government overthrow or an epic November loser’s party that would end in a power struggle…

Crowd says otherwiseAudience drowns out moderator’s objections that recital is ‘disrespectful’Posted: October 23, 20109:00 pm EasternBy Drew Zahn© 2010 WorldNetDailyAt a U.S. congressional candidate debate this past week, the crowd of approximately 300 in attendance drowned out the moderator’s objections, not to protest over government policies or to argue some candidate’s comments, but to insist upon reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.Illinois’ 8th Congressional District candidates had gathered at Grayslake Central High School in Grayslake, Ill., to participate in a debate moderated by Kathy Tate-Bradish of the League of Women Voters, Evanston branch.During Tate-Bradish’s opening comments, an audience member stood to ask if the Pledge of Allegiance would be recited.”No, we are not,” the moderator responded, “That is not part of the proposal tonight.
“Several in the crowd then began to shout, “Why not?”When it became clear Tate-Bradish was not going to allow the Pledge to be recited, the audience stood and said it anyway.This is still America, so wave your flag! Choose from 40 different patriotic banners in the WND flag store.
The moderator further irked the crowd afterward, saying she felt “disrespected” by being “forced” to include the pledge “in presumably a planned way.”Video of the exchange, taken by an audience member and posted on YouTube, can be seen below:
Establishment Tea Party Moneybomb Hit by Denial of service Attack service Establishment Tea Party Moneybomb Hit by Denial of service Attack onepixel One week after Alex Jones’ Infowars Moneybomb, Fox News host Glenn Beck shilled a moneybomb for the establishment Tea Party organization FreedomWorks.
It was hit by a cyber attack on Thursday.“The attack crippled the site at about 9:45 a.m. just when the fund-raising drive was publicized on the radio by conservative talk show host Glenn Beck. The group estimates it lost about $80,000 in potential donations as it struggled to bring its site back online,” the Wall Street Journal reported.“The precisely timed denial-of-service attack sowed chaos, snarling the organization’s Web traffic and setting off a flood of calls from frustrated radio listeners who were unable to access the site to make their donations. The group estimates the attack cost over $40,000 in lost donations alone,” Newsmax explained.“We think the idea was to take our site down until after the election,” said Kara Pally, web developer for FreedomWorks. “This was politically motivated.”
The Wall Street Journal refers to FreedomWorks as “a clearinghouse for the diffuse tea party movement.” Rather, it should be considered an establishment clearinghouse to weed out Libertarians and other elements unacceptable to the Republicans.
Howard Davies, chairman of the London School of Economics, and Willem Buiter, chief economist at Citigroup Inc., talk about the potential impact of additional quantitative easing by the Federal Reserve on the U.S. economy. Davies and Buiter also discuss the U.K.’s economy, budget and financial industry.

“Some sharp words about Arizona’s despicable new anti-immigration law from New York Times legal correspondent Linda Greenhouse: I’m not going back to Arizona as long as it remains a police state, which is what the appalling anti-immigrant bill that Gov. Jan Brewer signed into law last week has turned it into. What would Arizona’s revered libertarian icon, Barry Goldwater, say about a law that requires the police to demand proof of legal residency from any person with whom they have made “any lawful contact” and about whom they have “reasonable suspicion” that “the person is an alien who is unlawfully present in the United States?” Wasn’t the system of internal passports one of the most distasteful features of life in the Soviet Union and apartheid-era South Africa?
In light of Arizona Sen. John McCain‘s recent turnaround in favor of his state’s harsh new law, it’s also worth recalling this observation from McCain biographer and Reason Editor in Chief Matt Welch: Goldwater was never really warm toward his replacement, which is something McCain, to this day in my judgment, has never properly understood.”

A rally today at the U.S. Capitol pulled no punches in declaring President Barack Obama an “imposter” and “fraud” who should resign before a constitutional crisis of his own making rips apart the nation.
The rally was called by Philip Berg, a Pennsylvania attorney who runs the ObamaCrimes.com website and was the first to sue over allegations Obama is constitutionally ineligible to occupy the Oval Office.
“The main thrust of the rally,” Berg told WND, “was to get out the continuing message that Obama is a phony, a fraud, an imposter, and [his eligibility to serve as president] is the biggest hoax committed against the U.S. in 234 years.”
Berg believes there is enough evidence, both hard and circumstantial, to justify an investigation into whether or not Obama is a “natural-born citizen” as required by the Constitution to serve as president. Berg is looking for a court with “the guts” to demand Obama provide proof of his eligibility.
Berg told WND that though the crowd, which he estimated at a couple of hundred, was smaller than anticipated, he still considered the event a success – in part, because of what he hopes it will inspire.

Out on the campaign trail Barack Obama has given us his analysis of why his party is headed for significant losses in the election nine days hence. “Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now,” said the president for whom politics did not seem so tough in 2008, “and facts and science and argument do not seem to be winning the day all the time is because we’re hardwired not to always think clearly when we’re scared.
And the country’s scared.”In other words, the voters can’t see straight.But maybe it’s the Obama Democrats who are so scared they can’t see straight.A third reason is that big government can be overly bossy. Voters who have learned to navigate their way through life may not believe that they need Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to set the terms and conditions of their health insurance policies, as Obamacare authorizes her to do. “Don’t tread on me,” read the flags at Tea Party rallies. That’s not a contradiction of “facts and science.” It’s an insistence that the Obama Democrats’ policies would strangle freedoms and choke off growth. You may disagree.
But if so, it looks like you’re in the minority this year.
America Is Gone By David Deming
There is a whiff of anarchy in the air this morning. As I sit here writing, a conservative victory in the midterm elections looms. But I find no reason to be optimistic. The midterm elections will solve nothing. The plain fact is that conservatives have lost the battle for America.
The country that many of us were born in has ceased to exist.
And we have no one to blame but ourselves.
Nothing can or will change until we come to terms with the grim reality of moral degeneration. And I have no hope that this can happen, save by some terrible trial.
Last week in Oklahoma City, two pedestrians were run down by cars at the same intersection within a few hours.
In one incident, the driver did not bother to stop, but continued driving as if nothing had happened. It was a horrific but perfect metaphor for the self-absorbed entitlement mentality that grips the country.Every day, the news brings a startling new incident of moral corruption. A few days ago it was reported that an eighteen-year-old geology student at Arizona State University had starred in an online pornographic film in which she performed “explicit and degrading” sex acts for a one-time payment of $2,000.
The young woman explained that she needed the money to supplement her scholarship, and then inexplicably proclaimed, “I have morals!”…
World War II was my war. We fought the Germans. They were the enemy. There was a German problem. Of course, if we had stopped to think about it, which we didn’t because we were too busy trying to win the war, we would have realized that not every German wanted to fight us; maybe not even a majority of them did.
But those who were against him, didn’t dare speak up. A few did, of course, like the great German patriot Reverend Dietrich Bonhoeffer. He spoke out against the Nazi thugs. For his pains he was put into a concentration camp and died there. Jihadist thugs are now attacking us in the name of Islam. No doubt there are a lot of Islamic believers who don’t support this. But like the Germans in World War II, they are not speaking up… for good reason of course, as there was a good reason back in the days of the Third Reich. But because they aren’t speaking up to oppose what is being done in their name, the world has a Muslim problem.
Everybody knows this.
Not many public figures dare to say it out loud. Some public figures don’t want to know it, much less say it out loud.
“In San Antonio, the Alamo is venerated as a sacred shrine. But it does not belong to Texas alone,” Wayne told newspaper reporters. “It belongs to people everywhere who value the priceless treasure that has always been bought with blood — human freedom.
“Pilar Wayne says that was no act.”I feel that he wanted to show what America stood for and the courage and the love of the country,” she said. “To him, it was a very important message that he wanted to put out there. Mainly, it was his love of America.”"The Alamo,” which was the most expensive film ever made in the continental United States at the time, opened in theaters the same year as “Psycho,” “The Apartment,” “Spartacus,” “The Virgin Spring” and “La Dolce Vita.”For Wayne, the movie had been an obsession, a 14-year quest.”I’ve got everything I own in it.
I borrowed from banks and friends,” Wayne said. “But I’m not worried. This is a darn good picture. It’s real American history, the kind of movie we need today more than ever.”
Open MemoTo: Nancy PelosiFrom Cindy SheehanHey Nan,How’s that “liberal agenda” going for you these days?You have had quite a run as the first female Speaker of the House, haven’t you?
In that almost four years now, you have fully funded the wars; rammed through the bankster bailouts and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Modernization Act; refused to hold the criminals of the Bush administration accountable; supported the torture policies of George Bush and wanted even stricter measures against suspected terrorists; obediently supported and defended the murderous Israeli oppression of Palestine; presided over the worst jobs’ hemorrhage since the Great Depression can you see all the jobless and homeless from your mansion on the hill in Pac Heights? and the only “victory” that you can claim is a feeble health care “reform” bill that you admit you had no idea what it contained, when in reality, it was just a massive welfare program for your corporate buddies in the industry.
You are going to become a lame duck Speaker early next month when your party loses its majority–now don’t think I am thrilled that the Republicans are returning to a majority, at least in your House, because I think your party and the GOP are just different sides of the same coin–but you can’t say I didn’t warn you back in 2006 that if you and your party didn’t end the wars and hold BushCo accountable that your euphoria would be short-lived…
