Need yet another reason to vote on Nov. 2nd?
Check this out…”12 days to go: The election depends on you!by: CPUSA Political Action Commission October 21 2010 tags: elections,If the grand alliance that elected Barack Obama comes out in full force to vote we can stop the Tea Party/Republican takeover, continue moving forward and push further for green jobs, union rights, health care and the safety net for the common good.
If voters fail to turnout, the Tea Party/Republican “Promise to America” alternative is clear: continued tax breaks for the top richest two percent which will increase the deficit, privatization of social security, repeal of health care and financial reform, no extension of unemployment compensation, outsourced jobs, increased racism and severe limits to democratic rights……
When the choice before our country is made clear, voters can be convinced to go to the polls.Everyone can make a difference.

Did you know that the SEIU represents the voting machine technicians in Clark County Las Vegas, Nevada? Is it any surprise, as we noted earlier today, that there was a voting glitch in Clark County, Nevada? The glitch caused Harry Reid’s name to be automatically checked on the ballot before voters had indicated who were they were supporting.
According to Joyce Ferrara who was an eyewitness to this strange ballot ordeal, the problem was widespread, “One person that’s a fluke. Two, that’s strange. But several within a five minute period of time — that’s wrong.”It is particularly troubling that Clark County has put the uber left-wing SEIU Local 1107 in charge of their voting machines.
The agreement between the SEIU and Clark County specifically puts all voting machines under the control of the SEIU. See the collective bargaining agreement:
Taxpayers and First Amendment advocates won a huge victory yesterday when a U.S. District Court ruled that North Carolina could not collect detailed and private information about online shoppers to pursue them for tax collection.Beginning last year, the North Carolina Department of Revenue DOR sent letters to online retailer Amazon.com demanding that the company provide “all information” about in-state customers and their nearly 50 million purchases.
This included names, addresses, products purchased with descriptions, and more. The state DOR would then target those residents and force them to pay “use tax” on the purchased goods. Yet, a federal court in Seattle has now ruled such “reporting requirements” unconstitutional…
Obama or Reagan.In the end, that’s the choice.As the country enters the final week of what may be the most important election in a lifetime, these two presidents and their starkly differing visions of America are at the center of what has become a political earthquake.Barack Obama, of course, would seem to have the advantage.
He is the flesh-and-blood sitting president of the moment, with actual, real-time command of the White House and all the accompanying assets that includes. Air Force One responds to his beck and call, along with the helicopters, shiny limousines, the staff and the entire executive branch of the United States government. Not to mention the total control his party has had over the House and Senate.
The seal may have fallen off his podium the other week, but no matter. As he accurately pointed out, everyone does indeed know exactly who he is.A bit late, some would say.
Amid all the exuberance about electing a man because of his skin color was a deliberate refusal to understand that this particular man was a hard-core radical leftist. For some, the knowledge of just what then-Senator Obama intended to do if elected president was apparently hard to discern. For others, electing a man who had sat in the pews of Jeremiah Wright‘s church for twenty years and launched his first campaign from the living room of Weatherman terrorist Bill Ayers was an appallingly dangerous mistake.
What else, they now ask, could America possibly have expected?The unexpected answer?
The FBI opened an investigation into those shooting and one that occurred overnight at the Marine Corps Recruiting Station in Chantilly, Va.”
Media Matters and Think Progress – owned by group committed to “promoting the policies of Barack Obama,” completely fail to mention that Rand Paul supporter was also victim of assaultPaul Joseph WatsonPrison Planet.comTuesday, October 26, 2010
The establishment media and the George Soros-funded White House press whores Media Matters and Think Progress are raging about how a Rand Paul supporter stomped on a female MoveOn activist following last night’s Paul-Conway debate in Lexington, while covering up the fact that a female Rand Paul activist was also the victim of a stomping metered out by a Conway supporter just moments before.
An Associated Press video of the incident seems to go to great lengths to slow down the stomping in order to increase shock value, while conveniently failing to capture on film an almost identical incident moments before where a female Rand Paul supporter had her bandaged foot sliced open by a Conway fan who stomped her in a similar fashion.Lauren Valle, a liberal MoveOn activist, attempted to create a confrontation by moving towards Paul after the debate, only to be restrained by Rand Paul fans. The video shows one of them push his foot down on the woman’s upper back in a stomping motion. Other Rand Paul activists try to discourage the man from hurting the woman.The Rand Paul supporter who assaulted the woman is clearly a thug and should be criminally charged, but the establishment media and the George Soros-funded blogs have hastily exploited this unfortunate incident in an effort to prop up the flailing political campaign of Democrat Jack Conway, by attempting to demonize Rand Paul supporters as a mob of angry brownshirts.

Andrew Bostom has published an excellent piece on the recent comments made by Geert Corstens, The President of the Netherlands Supreme Court. Corstens photo above alleges that accused Parliamentarian Geert Wilders is “undermining Dutch jurisprudence”. From Bostom’s article:“Geert Corstens, President of the Netherlands Supreme Court, maintains in Orwellian fashion that Dutch Parliamentarian leader Geert Wilders is “undermining” Dutch jurisprudence.
[Hat tip Fjordman]As reported here,Critical statements on jurisprudence such as Wilders has made during the proceedings against him have an “undermining” effect on jurisprudence, particularly as the leader of the PVV [Wilders’ Party for Freedom] is also still a parliamentarian, according to Corstens. MPs should contribute to the stability of the constitutional state, said the president on television programme Buitenhof. This past Friday 10/22/10, because the three sitting judges evidenced unacceptable bias, a special chamber of the Amsterdam district court ruled that the ongoing case against Wilders must be restarted with a different panel of judges.
During a dinner in May 2010, Tom Schalken, one of the judges who gave the order to the Public Prosecutor’s Office OM to prosecute Wilders, attempted to persuade Islamologist Professor Hans Jansen, an expert witness for Wilders’ defense, that the Dutch MP was guilty. Specifically, Jansen insists,…over and over [Schalken] steered the conversation towards the Wilders trial… to convince me of the correctness of his [Schalken’s] decision to drag Wilders to court.And now another “objective” jurist—the President of the Netherlands Supreme Court himself—has made plain his own hideous bias proclaiming that Wilders defense of freedom of speech, let alone fair legal proceedings, somehow undermines Dutch “jurisprudence.”…”Yes, indeedy. The hooks of Islam are sunken deeply into the highest levels of the Dutch legal system.The best analogy that comes to my mind is this:
Who is the real Barack Hussein Obama? Harvard-educated professor of law? Radical community organizer? Union flack? Or Chicago Way thug politician?Now that it seems apparent that President Obama’s big government takeover policies will be soundly rebuked by the electorate next Tuesday, his anger against those who oppose him seems to be rising to the surface again and his true nature is showing through.
This past Monday, speaking on Univision, he warned that attaining his goals will be harder “[I]f Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us’.”What kind of Harvard professor talks like that? It appears that a majority of the electorate are about to be added to Barry’s enemy list. And how will he “punish” us? Put a “boot on our throats”? Find out “whose a- to kick”? On the same day, speaking in Rhode Island, he told Republicans “they can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in the back”.With Obama now in complete command of 50% of the US economy thanks to ObamaCare and Financial Reform with pending Cap & Trade legislation, EPA regulations, FDA food regulation, and FCC internet regulation to grab most of the remaining economy, finding creative ways to punish enemies and reward friends should be a snap.Being the President of the United States comes with some unique responsibilities.
The President must put aside petty politics and represent all of the American people, whether they be perceived “enemies” or “friends”. Apparently, Mr. Obama has not transcended the thuggish ways of his Chicago political past.
JUST HOW MANY CROOKS ARE THERE IN GOVERNMENT? HOW MANY CAN WE OUST NEXT WEEK?

“It is said that power corrupts, but actually it’s more true that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by other things than power.” – David Brin
The Founding Fathers went to great lengths to limit the buildup of centralized power. First, they limited the powers of the federal government to 17 enumerated powers, as delineated in Article I, Section 8 of the U. S. Constitution. They went even further to limit centralized power by establishing the “Separation of Powers” doctrine, such that the executive, legislative and judicial branches of the federal government were designed to hold each of the other branches in check. But the final check on centralized power came in the form of the 9th and 10th Amendments, granting ALL OTHER rights and powers to the states and the people.

In an effort to energize Latino voters, President Barack Obama defended his administration’s efforts to work for a comprehensive immigration plan, while adding that he was frustrated by the failures of Congress to deal with the issue.In an interview with Eddie “Piolin” Sotelo, recorded when Obama was in Los Angeles last week, the president blamed Republicans for refusing to work on the needed legislation.
As he has in the past, Obama noted that 11 Republican senators voted for immigration reform four years ago but walked away from the issue in this midterm-election year.”The fact that we have not got it done is something that frustrates me, and I know that it frustrates many people in the community,” Obama said, according to a transcript of the show, “Piolin por la Manana.” “The problem that we have is, is that until I can get some cooperation from the other side, then people who are anti-immigration reform can continue to block it.”When Piolin asserted that it appeared that the Obama administration had worked less hard on immigration than it had on other issues, such as health care, Obama disagreed.”My Cabinet has been working very hard on trying to get it done, but ultimately, I think somebody said the other day, I am president, I am not king. I can’t do these things just by myself.
We have a system of government that requires the Congress to work with the executive branch to make it happen. I’m committed to making it happen, but I’ve got to have some partners to do it,” Obama said.
Significant errors with voting machines have already begun to surface across the country, prompting fears that fraud could once again be a deciding factor in the elections this November.Fox News 5 reports that voters in Boulder City, Las Vegas have already experienced dubious errors with the machines.“Voter Joyce Ferrara said when they went to vote for Republican Sharron Angle, her Democratic opponent, Sen. Harry Reid’s name was already checked.” the report states.
The incident was not an isolated one, with several voters encountering the same problem within minutes of each other.Officials blamed the malfunctions on the machine’s “sensitive” screens and discounted any notion of fraud.Similar problems have also been reported in North Carolina. With rumours of voting problems in several counties.The New Bern Sun Journal reports:“Sam Laughinghouse of New Bern said he pushed the button to vote Republican in all races, but the voting machine screen displayed a ballot with all Democrats checked. He cleared the screen and tried again with the same result, he said. Then he asked for and received help from election staff.”“They pushed it twice and the same thing happened,” Laughinghouse said. “That was four times in a row. The fifth time they pushed it and the Republicans came up and I voted.”In this instance officials said that the machine needed to be “re-calibrated”.
This error seems to be somewhat common, however, the machines do not display an error message when they need to be calibrated, the simply complete ballots for the opposite party.
There have already been several reports of voter fraud & irregularities in several states. N CAROLINA:
No matter if you are early voting or voting on Nov. 2nd Take a camera or a smart phone to domcument what happens. If something does end up happening video will be the key.
There is also a strong belief that more competition and less regulation would be better for the economy and job creation.

Toronto has long been Canada’s center of progressive politics and far left activists had come to regard it as a lock-down state.

Obama may be losing the War on Terror, but his War on the Economy is headed full speed ahead
The Left’s War on the Economy
By Daniel Greenfield Full Story
Obama may be losing the War on Terror, but his War on the Economy is headed full speed ahead. The joblessness, the unemployment rolls and an economic in which the only people still making money are in the government, in public sector unions or on Wall Street is no accident. It was the intended result all along.
What Obama and the Democrats miscalculated is the mobilization of populist opposition and the speed with which the public turned to the Republicans for solutions, instead of treating Obama as the Great Savior for extending their unemployment benefits.

Globe and Mail’s ‘Fat Bo’y Wins
A new wind blowing
By Klaus Rohrich Full Story
Bob Dylan famously (and off key) sang, “the answer my friend, is blowin’ in the wind, the answer is blowin’ in the wind.” It’s no longer blowin’ in the wind; it IS the wind and the wind has ushered in a new era in, as the Toronto Sun’s Sue-Anne Levy likes to call, Toronto’s Socialist Silly Hall. Those sleepy hog town burgers have finally opened their eyes and realized that there was life beyond social democracy and those who paid the piper were entitled to call the tune.
While it wasn’t a clean Sweep through City Hall, eliminating the socialist elite altogether, it was a good start and a promise of a brighter future for taxpayers who had realized that David Miller’s brand of governance was for the benefit of his own leftist ideological allies like public sector unions and not for the benefit of the people who footed the bill for Miller’s largesse.

Time To Hold Environmental And Climate Doomsayers To Account
By Dr. Tim Ball Full Story
The 1990 Greenpeace Report on Global Warming said, carbon dioxide is added to the atmosphere naturally and unnaturally. They define unnatural as anything humans do. It is part of the theme of environmentalism that humans shouldn’t be here or tolerated only if they behave as they are told. The other part of the idea of unnatural is exploited to keep the people enthralled, fearful and therefore controlled. H.L.Mencken’s comment that, “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary” applies and is proof of the political nature of events presented, directly or with implication, as unnatural.

Most, if not all, the grief, antagonism, misconduct, lies, corruption, cheating, intimidation, bribery, and other ailments short of hang-nails and diarrhea on the political scene here in our country can be solved by doing just ONE thing: Pass TERM LIMITS. Unfortunately, it can only be done with Congress’ cooperation. That’s why I pray that the conservatives really do clean house and Senate so a Constitutional Amendment changing the Articles that pertain to service in Congress can be done without unnecessary tinkering and manipulation.
There should be no Constitutional Conventions that are mighty dangerous just by having them, with multitudes of people with axes to grind sitting around thinking of ways to CHANGE our entire governing process. We have just gone through a period of CHANGE proposed by the POTUS that has brought this country to the brink of dissolution or worse, a takeover by foreign and domestic anti-American interests.
Congress must propose the initiation for adoption of amendments to the Constitution with the necessity for a two-thirds concurrence of both the House of Representatives and the Senate which would then be proposed to theLegislatures of the full fifty states of our country requiring a three-fourths ratification of those Legislatures to make the Amendment as valid as part of our Constitution.
This is not a strange nor overly complicated process; witness the fact that such procedure has been done twenty-seven times before in our illustrious history, the first of which occurred in just two years and eight days after the initial passage on September 17, 1787 when the Bill of Rights, Amendments One through Ten, was sent to the state Legislatures on September 25, 1789 for ratification that then occurred on December 15, 1791.
It will require a truly honorable Congress overwhelmingly dedicated to making our country stronger and less prevalent to the urges of greed and self enriching. They will have to adopt the mentality of those great gentlemen who gathered in the Summer of the year of 1787 to forge and press for adoption of the world’s greatest and most enduring Constitution. But it can and it must make that effort as the divisive climate that prevails today will only worsen and cause more harm to the cohesiveness of our great country.Properly constructed, with Term Limits, the Congress people will not be in office long enough to figure out how to get corrupt.
And I am suggesting ONE term for all, not two as many others are saying.

“The most serious problem is that the government is out of control,” ~ Next Tuesday is our opportunity to begin to restore America
The mid-term election is a week away, and many Americans are looking forward to Nov. 2nd with great hope and anticipation, for two reasons.
First, they are fed up with the reprehensible and appalling gutter tactics and personal attacks of the campaign, but mostly they look forward to electing candidates that will bring substantial changes to the political landscape that will stop the nation’s headlong rush toward a command economy.
Our country is in deep trouble, and not just from the insane spending that has occurred since 2008, nor from the government takeover of auto manufacturers and banks, and not even that government has failed to do what needs to be done to foster a real recovery and job creation.
The most serious problem is that the government is out of control, with elected officials running wild, refusing to follow constitutional principles, and enacting laws and instituting policies that are dangerous and harmful.Read more
A George Soros-funded organization, aided by Texas U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, a Democrat, apparently is trying to chase volunteer observers from precinct polling locations across Harris County, Texas, after the watchers found election judges and clerks allegedly voting for citizens who were undecided.
“Only a week into early voting, volunteer poll-watchers also are being verbally and physically harassed by people loitering at the polls with no intention to vote at the time, including a man identified as a reverend and Houston Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, who was seen inside the polling location electioneering and threatening to turn a poll-watcher’s name to the Department of Justice for voter intimidation,” said a statement from Liberty Institute.The dispute has its roots in the bitter fight over elections that has developed in 2010, as Democrats both nationally and locally are feeling the sting of abandonment by voters who are enraged by the general takeover of society being pursued by President Obama.
WND reported just days ago when the U.S. Department of Justice confirmed it would investigate Democrat complaints of “intimidation” by “white middle class” poll observers in minority precincts in Harris County. They were accused of “hovering” around voters.

How many times have you heard the president and the congressional Democrats say Americans who make less than $200,000 a year have not had, and will not have, any of their taxes increased? Unfortunately, it is not true, and it is likely to become a whole lot worse.
The 111th Congress has already enacted $352 billion in net tax increases and may, in the upcoming lame-duck session, enact the largest tax increases in history, which will hit every man, woman and child – as well as every business in America.
The good folks at Americans for Tax Reform ATR have put together the data on what the current Democrat-controlled Congress has done already. I have summarized their analysis in the accompanying table.The tax increase of $725.7 billion dwarfs the tax cuts of $373 billion, leaving a net tax increase of $352 billion. But it gets worse. Just $107.6 billion of the tax cuts are permanent – the rest are temporary – but all of the $725.7 billion increases are permanent.
The S-Chip bill was funded by an additional $65.5 billion in tobacco tax increases. These increases are paid primarily by lower-income people. Obamacare is funded with a variety of individual and employer mandates, excise tax increases and fees, including a tax on “tanning salons,” adding up to $652 billion in tax increases, before deducting $107 billion in “exchange credits” and $37 billion in small-business tax credits.
The vast majority of these tax increases fall on middle- and lower-income people. As with all of the revenue estimates prepared by Congress’ Joint Tax Committee, most of the behavioral effects of these tax changes are ignored
Hollywood has turned against him: he has been dropped from the cast of Hangover 2Here we go again.
Mel Gibson has been dropped from the cast of Hangover 2. He was to have had a cameo role as a tattooist – the role played in the original Hangover by that winsome rapist Mike Tyson – but at the weekend it emerged that his co-stars had decided that they could not appear alongside a man whose wickedness has dragged the good name of Hollywood through the mud.
Over at Salon Matt Zoller Seitz thinks he detects double standards at play:“There’s something about this Hangover 2 thing that doesn’t pass the smell test. It seems, at the very least, yet another example of the selective outrage that fuels controversy-driven entertainment coverage, and Hollywood posturing generally, with actors, directors, producers, studio bosses and other players working themselves into a righteous snit about certain people and offenses while giving others a pass.”Go here for the whole thing.
At the center of the measure is an across-the-board reduction in the individual tax bracket that would result in a 49-percent overall savings in six years. Corporate reductions are slated to reach 30 percent.
The cornerstone of the tax modification is the reduction of the income tax brackets.
People making less than $20,000 would not pay any tax.
The bracket of those making $20,001 to $30,000 would be taxed 7 percent.
From $30,001 to $70,000, the allocation would be 14 percent.
The upper part of the scale, generating between $70,001 and $125,000, would pay 25 percent. Those making above $125,000 would be taxed 30 percent.
“This is more than just a Tax Reform; this is a new platform to spearhead an economic revival.
Enclosed in this document is the most comprehensive tax modification in the history of Puerto Rico,” Fortuño said.The plan, which is called Más dinero para tu bolsillo More Money in Your Pocket would start in December and would last until fiscal 2016.

In his recently published memoir, “Without Hesitation: The Odyssey of an American Warrior,” General Hugh Shelton, who served as the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 1997 to 2001, called the Iraq war “unnecessary” and said that the Bush team went to war “based on a series of lies.”
Shelton also said that Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Deputy Secretary of State Paul Wolfowitz and other Pentagon officials pushed for war in Iraq “almost to the point of insubordination.”Former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs: Iraq War Based On a Series of Lies PTUmbz3NTEzM2ZjODdmNTANTdhYmRhZDFlNzY2MjY5YTAZCZzPWJsb2dnZXImb2Y9MA==This is not some voice from the peanut gallery.The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs is – by law – the highest ranking military officer in the United States armed forces, and the principal military adviser to the President of the United States.

Early voting shows a Republican turnout advantage that is unprecedented in modern elections. In Florida and Pennsylvania, Republicans are more than TWICE as likely to have voted than Democrats.In 2004, the internet, then in turn talk radio and even network news were ablaze with news that exit polling showed Senator John Kerry crushing President George W. Bush. A quick look at the numbers easily showed that they were obviously fake: Michigan, for instance, was listed twice, with radically different poll results! But people were so hungry for news, few questioned their credibility.We are now facing a hoax that large. Early reports are claiming that the Democrats have a surprising turnout advantage. The numbers this time are real, but highly misleading……………………………………….
Having failed to find a campaign message that resonates with voters, President Obama and congressional Democrats have settled on a bizarre closing argument: that Democratic candidates and American democracy are imperiled by the infusion of funds from undisclosed and foreign entities.Obama’s attacks on campaign spending by pro-Republican groups are a transparent attempt to distract voters from his failed legislative agenda.
They also highlight Obama’s increasing tendency to pick fights with political opponents, to demonize and smear his critics and generally to exhibit some of the most unpresidential behavior this side of Watergate.The argument that foreign money is undermining the electoral process was thrust to the fore last January. During his State of the Union address, President Obama launched an unprecedented attack on the Supreme Court.Obama alleged that in its decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, which overturned restrictions on corporations’ political speech, the court had “reversed a century of law to open the floodgates for special interests—including foreign corporations—to spend without limit in our elections.”Obama’s accusation elicited Justice Samuel Alito’s famous “That’s not true” response.Obama continued, “Well I don’t think American elections should be bankrolled by America’s most powerful interests, or worse, by foreign entities.” Obama then encouraged Congress to pass a law to overturn the court’s decision.
While much of the media focused on Alito’s alleged “breach of etiquette,” it was Obama who had unfairly attacked the justices, who attend the State of the Union out of respect for the President, at a venue that gave them no chance to respond.More recently, Obama has repeatedly accused the U.S. Chamber of Commerce of “tak[ing] in money from foreign corporations” and “spending huge sums to influence American elections” by producing issue advertisements “without ever disclosing who’s behind all these attack ads.”

To do so, I attend the mandatory secretary of state election law training and the required clerical training every seven months on how to assemble and disassemble the electronic voting equipment, do the paperwork, etc. Also, I am a volunteer deputy voter registrar and have attended the training on how to complete the voter registration form for the state of Texas for the past several years.In other words: I am trained and I know what I am doing. I follow the law and swear in my clerks each election to uphold the “purity” of the election.I am also a Blue Star Mom, with a son currently deployed to Afghanistan with the 101st Airborne. He is a registered voter and deserves the right to vote. He does not have to vote, but he should have the choice to vote and should have a ballot sent to him on time.
I have listened to the Department of Defense describe the military post card procedures. I have also reviewed the website for military voting, and I found and provided the “Registration and Absentee Ballot Request — Federal Post Card Application FPCA” form for my son and for other military service members. My son completed the form on one of his visits home from his home post of Fort Campbell, Kentucky, and it was signed and dated with additional information to be completed. The APO address is to be provided later by the soldier or parents.This form seemed self-explanatory. People do not know their APO address until they are deployed or until just before they are deployed, and this was my son’s first deployment: he is 20 years old.My experience trying to change his registration to an APO address with the Harris County Voter Registration Department was interesting. I contacted the head of the elections department, and was told that they could not help me — I had to talk to the mail ballot staff.
I called them, and the person I spoke to was hesitant — they wanted to talk to my son. I tried to explain that this was not possible, as he had just left for Afghanistan and I had no contact with him.
He’s already started.
While he claims he wants to work together for the good of the country, he has spent the last two weeks demeaning and castigating Republicans at every chance he’s gotten. But today 10-25-10 it reached a new low. He used a racially charged pejorative that no other national leaders would ever be able to get by with as far as the Elite Media is concerned. He said: “Republicans had driven the economy into a ditch and then stood by and criticized while Democrats pulled it out.
Now that progress has been made, he said, “we can’t have special interests sitting shotgun. We gotta have middle class families up in front. We don’t mind the Republicans joining us.
They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back.”And this is how he plans to get cooperation from the victors?Click here to read the best spin the AP could put on it
The Obama administration has formed a subcommittee drawn from various parts of the federal government to advise the White House on regulatory and legislative issues for the Web.The panel, which will focus on the Internet privacy, comes as consumer advocacy groups have complained that Internet users need more protection from social media, advertising and other sites that collect user information.
A blog post last Sunday on the National Science and Technology Council Web site said the subcommittee will include members of several federal agencies, such as the Commerce, Justice, Homeland Security and State departments. Cameron Kerry, general counsel at the Commerce Department, and Christopher Schroeder, assistant attorney general at the Justice Department, will head the group.Representatives of the Federal Trade Commission and Federal Communications Commission were also invited.
In a breaking development that may affect the close California Senate race, Pajamas Media has learned The Foundation for Ethics in Public Service sent a letter to Eric Holder last Thursday requesting the attorney general “begin an investigation to determine whether United States Senator Barbara Boxer violated any criminal laws or should be liable for any civil penalty for failure to disclose real property on her Personal Financial Disclosure Reports between 2002 and 2010.”
The Foundation for Ethics in Public Service is a 501c3 tax-exempt organization “that seeks to bring a new level of transparency, accountability and integrity to all levels of government in the United States.” Boxer is the chair of the Senate Select Committee on Ethics.The specific property FEPS is referring to is an Oakland, California, home valued at over a million dollars and co-owned by Boxer, her husband Stewart, their son Douglas, and his wife Amy.
The letter to Holder reads in part: Despite the fact that Senator Boxer had an ownership in 854 Longridge Road [in Oakland], she failed to report this substantial real property asset on any of her personal financial disclosures between 2002 and 2010. She had also failed to report the mortgage on the property. Further, she failed to report the purchase of 854 Longridge Road in 2002. Each year Boxer was required to have filed a “full and complete report.” The filing of false or incomplete disclosure statements is in violation of the Ethics in Government Act.
The Act authorizes the Attorney General of the United States to seek civil penalties against Senators who knowingly and willy falsify or fail to report required information. The knowing and willful concealment of the existence of substantial amount of real property for a prolonged period may subject Senators to federal criminal prosecution under 18 U.S.C. paragraph 101.

Islamofascism: O’Reilly, Whoopi and Joy are all wrong. The 9/11 terrorists weren’t “Muslim extremists” or just plain “Muslims.” A liberal newspaper reporter says they were model Muslims.”Several were described as among the best boys — bright, respectful — in their towns,” he reports in his book. “Many had gone to university,” he adds. “Three had studied Islamic law.” At least one, Ahmed al-Haznawi, had memorized the Quran, a sign of deep devotion much respected by Muslim elders. In fact, he earned the honorary religious title of “hafiz” at a young age.
McDermott describes how another hijacker, Wail al-Shehri left home to train for jihad in Afghanistan after a long period of recitation of Quranic verses. He had the approval of a local imam.But he wasn’t the only one who knew what they were planning. “Two-thirds of them told their families they were leaving to join the jihad,” McDermott writes, adding that their families did not discourage them. “They went where they were called by their religion.”That’s not the story we heard after 9/11. In media interviews, the parents of the hijackers expressed shock about the deeds of their sons.
We must have the wrong men, they insisted. Their boys could never do such a thing. Jihad? What jihad?
Take your own black thoughts into your self-centered depression but leave the rest of us alone Bloggers trying to infect the masses with deadly defeatism By Judi McLeod
Take your own black thoughts into your self-centered depression but leave the rest of us alone
By Judi McLeod Sunday, October 24, 2010
With much of the Mainstream Media now wholly creating the news while patently ignoring the real McCoy, comes an unexpected defeatism drill from websites and blogs considered to be on the Help Save America side.
Defeatism and negativity, spoon-fed from the Obama Regime, are springing up all over the Internet.
America is finished. Last man out don’t forget to turn off the lights is the dreary theme.
“I don’t see how the US survives the Abyss at this point,” a reader wrote Canada Free Press (CFP) this morning. “Just sunk too far morally and bankrupt economically. “We’re ripe to be picked off by a foreign or domestic tyrant…or both?”
The CFP letter writer was responding to what he described was “Depressingly posted” over at Free Republic.
“I have to agree with the author, wrote the FR commenter. “America is now nothing more than a land mass populated by far too many cretins and parasites who have absolutely no respect for the military and who vote for big government to confiscate money from their neighbors and “redistribute” it to them. It is not an America worth defending anymore.
“There’s no point hanging onto the past. America had a great run. Remember it fondly for what it was.
“The parasites outnumber the hosts now, and there’s no going back. Throw some cold water in your face and figure out how to grab every government dime you possibly can before the parasites gobble it all up.
“Whatever. I just live here.
“Every man for himself.”
Thank God this man never got to serve in the trenches with the soldiers of any war.
If defeatism and negativity continue to go viral on the Net, America will have to be dosed with mass-distributed valium. Something the enemy has probably been contemplating all along.
“America is now nothing more than a land mass populated by far too many cretins and parasites”? The truth is the cretins and parasites have been clinging to the undergarments of civilized society all throughout history. Every once in awhile a Churchill or a Lincoln comes along. They came throughout past chapters of history and indeed they will come again.
The long gaps between the coming of the statesmen of the world makes them all the more welcome when they return.
IMPEACH OBAMA! STOP WASTING YOUR TIME By: Devvy

“It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime.” ~Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason
From the moment Obama/Soetoro was sworn into office, Americans galvanized into Impeach Obama Now! factions.However, there is a problem here because two wrongs don’t make a right, which is why I have not supported any petitions calling for impeachment.Despite the continued protestations by Obama/Soetoro supporters and professional liars in the dominant media, there is no question the usurper camped out in the White House was never eligible to run for president of these united States of America.
All the huffing, puffing, vile name calling and protesting does not and cannot alter the legal fact that Obama/Soetoro was born with dual citizenship. It is his father’s citizenship status at the time Obama/Soetoro was born that clearly makes him ineligible to be president.
We’re all aware of the 40 or so lawsuits filed to expose Obama/Soetoro’s perfidy and the decisions rendered by cowardly federal judges using the cop out – “standing” – as their justification in tossing the lawsuits. We’re all aware that even though tens of thousands of Americans demanded the electoral college not certify the vote for the impostor on the ballot, they also proved to be gutless cowards or political hacks who value party loyalty over the U.S. Constitution.
The final stop on the way to certifying an ineligible candidate was the U.S. Congress who sat on their cowardly backsides, January 9, 2009, knowing full well there were millions of Americans questioning the legitimacy of Obama/Soetoro’s eligibility.
Yet, not a single member of Congress and that includes Ron Paul stood up on the floor and objected.
There is an orderly procedure that could have been triggered had one member of the Outlaw Congress stood up.
 Instead, they all stood down and here we are today with a constitutional crisis that is not going away.As Obama/Soetoro clearly was never eligible to run for the presidency, once he “took” office, he legally became a usurper.
That action is defined as: to seize and hold a position, office, power, etc. by force or without legal right: The pretender tried to usurp the throne.

MSNBC’s new “Lean Forward” campaign is large enough, bold enough, and the subject of just enough publicity to be the object of consistent ridicule from the right.
We’ve seen the parodies, the defiant counter-ads, and now Glenn Beck has taken it upon himself to improve upon the original slogan, suggesting: “MSNBC: Bend Over” because, he explains, “I think it would be more appropriate.”The comment came as an aside to a description of a politician Beck and his radio crew thought was not quite a moderate, but not quite a partisan.
“She leans,” one of Beck’s co-hosts explained, “like MSNBC, but not forward.” Here Beck interrupted to give some advice to his cable news competition: “By the way, MSNBC, why don’t you just make your slogan ‘Bend Over?’ Because you lean forward enough and it’s bending over, and I think it would be more appropriate.”“It’s a nudge,” explains his co-host in an attempt to follow the logic of the new campaign. “First you lean forward, then you bend over…” and before Glenn could jump in, he’s concludes “and then you fall on your face.”“Oh, that’s what happens when you bend over?” Glenn asks mischievously.
