Gunny G’s Notes On USMC Politics, History, Inter-Service Relations, etc.:
SOME ‘Gunny G’ NOTES ON MARINE CORPS HISTORY, POLITICS, INTER-SERVICE RELATIONS, ETC.
-President Harry S. Truman, 1950
How many times have we heard and read references and allusions made as to the insatiable desire of the Marines for publicity. Marines usually just shrug this off, deny or ignore it, or sometimes attempt to explain away this accusation…………………………
expunging the fiat money system and returning America to hard money principles, dismantling that cabal of international criminals known as the Federal Reserve, returning America’s foreign policy to its constitutional parameters of non-interventionism, eviscerating those federal programs and entities not prescribed by the US Constitution, getting rid of the income tax, and taking the United States out from under the power and influence of the United Nations.
No one else has the guts to even seriously talk about these issues, much less to actually do something about it! And if the “powers that be” successfully defeat Dr. Paul’s candidacy, it won’t matter to a tinker’s dam who gets elected President in 2012 (that is, unless a constitutionalist third-party candidate miraculously wins the Presidency)! Republican or Democrat, it will be business-as-usual……………………………
With absolutely no proof of any kind of who he really is, Barack Obama made it to the Oval Office in 2008. There was no media vetting of the largely absentee senator from Illinois, who even back then had the temerity to compare himself to Abraham Lincoln. All anyone ever had to go on was an autographical book suspected of being ghost-written by an unrepentant domestic terrorist. We all know how it goes with politicians and autobiographical books.
If Harry Reid ever gets around to it writing his, wine will turn to vinegar overnight.
You can claim to be anyone you want in a book, and that’s what Barry Soetoro did.
The point is that Barry Soetoro took the name Barack Hussein Obama, got himself elected and immediately began pushing the country, so many look up to, right up to the precipice and nobody—nobody—has been able to stop him.
Now when we have a narcissistic Obama plunging in the polls, a democrat governor in North Carolina is pushing the envelope for suspending elections and covering up a notion she dropped by bombshell by claiming she was only using hyperbole to make a point for a Rotary Club.
If the election were held tomorrow, Obama would go down in a landslide strikingly more humiliating than the shellacking he and his party got—and never got over—in the midterms.
But the 2012 election is more than a year away, and…………………

So far, the collective record of American Law Enforcement is pretty abysmal. You guys are responsible for public safety, you have failed because of your ignorant, “holier than thou” attitude. This Country is fast going down the tubes, on YOUR watch, YOU are responsible . YOU are a FAILURE because of your misconception of your own importance..
Open your eyes, man, LOOK at what is taking place around you.
Let me explain some more.
I am an Investigator. I was twenty plus years in the British Police, I was a ranking Detective, Scotland Yard. I got to investigate the effects of the extreme Left on the Prison population. What we found was that the left, the Marxists, Maoists, Trotskyists, Communists etc, were actively indoctrinating the Career Criminal “fraternity” of groups like the Provisional IRA, knowing that their bombing and killings would get most of them imprisoned. The theory, which was amazingly effective, was that the imprisoned criminals, now fully indoctrinated and active subversives, could then work on the prison population to produce a massive population of left/subversive activists who would turn on society and further spread their cancerous dogma, undermining the societal framework and providing a path to “Communist domination.”…………………
But one of those homes didn’t have what police were looking for, and their unexpected visit left the people inside shaken and upset.
It started shortly after Nancy Parker’s husband came home from work Friday evening.
“There came this huge bang on the door, front door, sounded like the door was going to fall in,” recalled Parker.
She said her husband opened the door to multiple officers in raid gear with guns drawn.
“We were completely shocked, upset,” she continued. “I was panicked because I’ve never had anything like this happen to us before, never.”
She said the officers demanded to come inside her home.
“And my husband asked, ‘Do you have a warrant? Who are you looking for?’ and they said, ‘Gerald Sentell,’” Parker said. “We don’t even know this person.”
DEA agents said Sentell is one of the fugitives officers were looking for during last week’s drug bust.
A DEA spokesperson told News 13 the agents were following up on a citizen’s tip that Sentell was at the home.
Parker said she and her husband were wary of cooperating because they weren’t sure what was going on.
When asked if she thought the officers could have been imposters, Parker replied, “Yes. That’s very much what we thought, and that’s why my husband said no, you’re not coming in this house without a warrant.”
The DEA spokesperson said the agents left when they were denied entry by the couple.
Parker said she’s still not over the incident.
“I felt like I was in a nightmare, you know this doesn’t happen to us,” she said. “All I could tell you is I couldn’t move, I couldn’t even hardly think, I was so afraid.”
DEA officials said every officer involved in the raid had vests with the word, ‘Police’ clearly marked, and that guns were out of their holsters but were not directly pointed at anyone in this case.
The DEA said all of the officers involved in the raid were following procedure and did nothing wrong.
Police are still looking for Sentell, along with many other suspects from the drug raid.

MASSACRE IN MEXICO
MORE GRAPHIC PHOTOS SHOWING VICTIMS OF VICIOUS, EVIL, RUTHLESS MEXICAN DRUG CARTELS!
GRAPHIC, DISTURBING CONTENT. PROCEED WITH CAUTION.
Grapic images from Mexico
MEXICO CITY – The scene was shocking. Masked gunmen blocked a busy road in the once-quiet port city of Veracruz, abandoning two trucks with 35 bodies inside, near a big shopping center. It was Tuesday at 5 p.m., broad daylight.
People on the streets watched the corpses being left at an underpass. Some of the victims had their hands tied and showed signs of having been tortured. The picture could have been extracted from a horror movie.
According to Veracruz state Attorney General, Reynaldo Escobar, 23 of the victims were men and 12 were women. “We have never seen a situation like this before,” said Escobar…
RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, let’s turn back the hands of time. Earlier this year you will recall during the continuing resolution debate, the funding of the budget, the raising of the debt limit, I was urging from behind the Golden EIB Microphone, John Boehner, the Republican leadership, to force Obama to cave, that we were the ones who held the position of strength coming off the 2010 midterm elections, which was a landslide shellacking. The Democrats lost 63 seats in the House. Well, it’s a net number that the Republicans have now in the leadership, in their lead. All the way down the ballot, state and local issues, the Democrats just took a bath. And I said winners don’t compromise with losers. Losers compromise with winners…………………
According to Politico, papers filed in court late Monday night reveal the Central Intelligence Agency has “52 unique…photographs and/or videorecordings” portraying bin Laden during or after the Abbottabad raid.
No other specifics were made available as the images are all “TOP SECRET” and their release is deemed detrimental to U.S. national security.
“All of the responsive records are the product of a highly sensitive, overseas operation that was conducted under the direction of the CIA,” Bennett wrote, arguing that disclosure of the information would reveal “intelligence activities and/or methods.” He called the photos “gruesome,” and said they depict the gunshot wound to bin Laden’s head. It is unclear whether his descriptions referred to all the images and videos, or just some of them.
The conservative watchdog group is expected to respond to the governments filings by October 24……………..
Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura has called for a nationwide boycott of the NFL in response to its announcement that attendees to all football games will be groped TSA-style, while Ventura also launched a campaign for a national no fly day set to take place on July 4th 2012.
Ventura responded to the news about the NFL announcing they would carry out TSA-style pat downs by telling the Alex Jones Show that such measures are already commonplace at many sports venues.
“I’m a season ticket holder with the Minnesota Lynx, the women’s basketball team, and two times they’ve stopped me to wand me. The first one the guy stopped me because I had my wallet and my keys in my front pocket, and he stopped me and said ‘excuse me what’s in your front pocket’ – and I looked at the kid and I said ‘I’m the damn Governor’ – I said ‘don’t make me have to sue you like I’m suing TSA’. I said ‘what difference does it make I used to be the Governor here, use some common sense young man’, and I chewed his ass out,” said Ventura
“I advocate a boycott of the National Football League and leave their stadiums empty,” said Ventura, adding, “That’s what this country needs to do to rise up – we the people have to start speaking back….how about a day of the year where nobody flies, I would love to see that happen.”
Ventura then went on to select July 4th 2012 as the date for a national campaign when Americans would refuse to fly in protest against the TSA.
“We’re supposed to be a country of the people, by the people and for the people, not them, right now we’re subservient to the government – our forefathers did not have that in mind, that’s not what this country was supposed to be, the government was supposed to be subservient to us,” he stated.
“Why is it the government’s job to provide security for the airlines when the airlines are a private sector business?” asked Ventura. “Why not have the airlines provide their own security?”
* A d v e r t i s e m e n t
Ventura also echoed similar concerns made public by Ron Paul, that the federal government was preparing to use the problem of illegal immigration to erect checkpoints on all major highways and force Americans to accept a national ID card.
Ventura is currently engaged in a legal battle in a bid to sue the TSA for groping him during an incident last November. Ventura’s stance has put his career under threat – he has considered abandoning travel by air altogether if TSA pat-down policies are not amended.
Ventura is constantly subjected to harassment by TSA workers when he travels as a result of his hip replacement which routinely sets off metal detectors.
A federal judge is currently deliberating on whether the case will go to trial, a long delay that Ventura and his lawyer suspect may mean that the trial will proceed.
“Any case like this has been ruled upon faster than this one, this is the longest any judge has held on to a case, I can state that unequivocally,” said Ventura, adding that it has been over two months since he last appeared in court over the issue.
Ventura has vowed to call a press conference if his case is thrown out and he is denied a jury trial.
You may recall, that back on December 21, the FCC bypassed government regulations and seized control of the Internet — delivering what many believe is a knockout blow to one of the last, great free-market frontiers our nation and the world has ever seen.
According to the organization Less Government, regardless of a multiple lawsuits, a move by the House of Representatives and a D.C. Circuit Court unanimously ruling that the FCC had no authority to take control, the fed is still arrogantly pushing forward toward full implementation of their Net Neutrality regulations on November 20!
The FCC’s Net Neutrality regulations would be job-killers — likely stifling the $30 billion annually that investors pour into Internet development and advancement and hundreds of thousands of jobs.
And that’s not the worst of it… As we warned several months ago, these regulations will lead to the FCC’s control Web content!
Should we expect anything less?
Considering government growth and control is surging while private sector job opportunities continue shrinking! Now Americans are in danger of losing their free speech rights through this latest FCC Net Neutrality power-grab!
+ + A Grassroots Call to Action!
The only way to stop this runaway train is for grassroots Americans to appeal to the Senate to move quickly to pass a Congressional Review Act (CRA) Resolution that would effectively kill the illegal, job-killing Net Neutrality order.

Following our recent security memo about the Mac Flashback Trojan horse, Intego has seen an increase in the number of Mac users infected by this malware. After publicizing this threat, many users have posted both in the comments on this blog, and on other blogs and forums about having either seen this malware download, or actually installing it.
If you end up on a site that is serving this malware, you will see something similar to this:
The first things you see are the crashed plugin graphic and the purported error messages. After this, the fake Adobe Flash installer screen pops up, and then the Flashback Trojan horse installation package downloads. At this point, if you have the default Safari settings – which allow “safe” downloads to open automatically – you will see an Installer window open.
This is effective social engineering. Savvy Mac users will not be fooled, because they know that a Flash installer would never appear in this manner, but two things make this approach believable. First, Flash Player is not installed on Mac OS X Lion, so users will need to install it themselves if they want to view Flash content on the web. Second, if they do have Flash Player installed, and have set the Flash Player preference pane (in System Preferences) to automatically check for updates, they may think that this is an update alert. (We have never had any such alerts, in spite of having checked that setting.) So this can easily fool many Mac users into downloading the malware.
For these reasons, Intego is raising the risk level of this malware to medium.
If you see a web page similar to that shown above, do not run any installer, and if the Installer window does not open, check your Downloads folder for any package file that contains the name Flash, then delete it. Only download Flash Player installers from the Adobe web site.
Note: if anyone who has been infected by this Trojan horse knows the URL at which they got it, or has a sample, please send an e-mail (with sample
Scandal-Ridden Activist Group Lives on in the Form of “Bullet Proof Community-Organizing Frankensteins” Created Across the Country
Press Office 202-646-5172, ext 305
Washington, DC — September 28, 2011
Judicial Watch, the public interest organization that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, today released “The Rebranding of ACORN,” a special report on the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) network, following an extensive investigation of the organization’s transformation into various “spinoffs” and affiliated organizations.
The ACORN-affiliated groups existing today are ACORN in all but name. These groups tend to occupy ACORN’s former offices, are staffed in many cases with former ACORN employees, and remain committed to ACORN’s mission. Overall, Judicial Watch has documented 17 ACORN-affiliated organizations in the following states/regions: Arizona, Arkansas, California, District of Columbia, Florida, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, New England, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Washington.
Among the conclusions of Judicial Watch’s special report:
ACORN lives on in the form of numerous state entities and in such affiliated organizations as Affordable Housing Centers of America (AHCOA), The Advance Group, The Black Institute, and Project Vote. In the words of Bertha Lewis, former chief executive officer of ACORN, “… these entities are carrying on ACORN’s work of organizing low- and moderate-income folks… [We have created] bullet-proof community-organizing Frankensteins that they’re going to have a very hard time attacking.” Tens of millions of dollars in ACORN’s funds and other assets are still unaccounted for. The attorney general’s office for the state of Louisiana and the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, as well as Judicial Watch, continue to investigate what happened to these missing resources. Judicial Watch discovered that the Obama administration continues to bankroll ACORN and its affiliates in defiance of the federal government’s funding ban. For example, on March 1, 2011, ACORN Housing Corporation

Newly released audio contradicts the claims of Perdue’s press team that her call Tuesday for suspending Congressional election was a joke or hyperbole. In the recording, her tone is matter-of-fact and her comments are part of a serious speech.
“Listen to the Governor’s words: She wasn’t joking at all,” North Carolina GOP spokesman Rob Lockwood told The Daily Caller. “The congressional Democrats are wildly unpopular in North Carolina, so she may have been trying to invent a solution to save their jobs from public accountability.”
“If it was a joke, what was the set-up?,” Lockwood adds. “What was the punch-line? Where was the pause for laughter? It took them three hours to say it was a ‘joke,’ but when that flopped it became ‘hyperbole.’ We’ll just call it an unconstitutionally bad idea.”
why not just bulldoze the wh, as others have suggested?????

Actually, it was Barack Obama, but his message was the same as the one from the man whose beating by police (after a 117-mph car chase) triggered the Los Angeles riots of 1992 when the cops were acquitted. During the riot, King came out and famously said, “People, I just want to say, you know, can’t we all get along?”
The topic at the UN was Obama’s wish for the Palestinians and Israelis to be at peace in two nations, side by side. Meanwhile, the Security Council was considering recognizing an independent Palestinian state.
But the real message seemed to be Obama’s taking the dais as King of the World. Like a good sovereign, he touched on every theme imaginable to make “our children” happy, wealthy and wise. He talked about curing various diseases, stopping war and climate change, advancing science, prosperity and, yes, even gay rights, throwing in a line suited to a fundraiser in San Francisco. Of course, with his converting the United States military into the largest homosexual sensitivity training unit in history this week, why should we be surprised? Obama spoke as if the interests of the world were the same as those of the United States. He stroked the attendees repeatedly, reminding them of the UN’s importance, noting that “the United Nations helped avert a third world war.”

via WHY NOT HERMAN CAIN?.
“I get the same stupid question at almost every one of these events,” Cain writes in a forthcoming book “This is Herman Cain,” to be released in early October.
According to the Daily Caller, which has obtained an advance copy of the book, Cain claims that Paul’s supporters are “threatened by me” and are “trying to destroy me on the fact that I was once affiliated with” the Federal Reserve.
Cain even has his own conspiracy theory that Paul’s campaign is deliberately sending people out to Cain events to attempt to discredit him:
“I know it’s a deliberate strategy.” Cain writes, “How can a person randomly show up at a hundred events and ask the same stupid question to try to nail me on the Federal Reserve?”
Is Cain serious? Clearly he has no concept of the determination and reach of Ron Paul’s grassroots support base. Paulites are focused and unwavering, just as their chosen candidate has been for thirty plus years.
Ron Paul has warned his supporters for three decades and more about the dangerous of a fraudulent fractional reserve banking system in the hands of private central bankers, and no one can legitimately argue any longer that those concerns have not been justified. Why is it so hard for Cain to accept that every Ron Paul supporter would share the same concerns?
Paul’s supporters have argued that Cain is not serious about reigning in the power of the Federal Reserve over US monetary policy, pointing to the fact that he was chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City in 1995 and 1996.
While Ron Paul has continually pushed to audit the Fed, Cain seemingly does not believe an audit is necessary:
“I have said: ‘I don’t think you’re going to find anything to audit on the Federal Reserve.’” Cain writes. “But they (Ron Paul supporters) want you to believe that Herman Cain doesn’t want the Federal Reserve to be audited.”
“It’s really becoming annoying more than anything else.” Cain states.
* A d v e r t i s e m e n t
Polls have consistently revealed that at least 75% of the American people want a full audit of the Fed, and the majority were against reconfirming Bernanke.
Bloomberg noted last December:
A majority of Americans are dissatisfied with the nation’s independent central bank, saying the U.S. Federal Reserve should either be brought under tighter political control or abolished outright, a poll shows.
Americans across the political spectrum say the Fed shouldn’t retain its current structure of independence. Asked if the central bank should be more accountable to Congress, left independent or abolished entirely, 39 percent said it should be held more accountable and 16 percent that it should be abolished. Only 37 percent favor the status quo.
In light of these facts, Cain seems totally out of touch with what voters core concerns are, especially libertarian leaning republican and independent voters. To describe questions over the Federal Reserve as “stupid” and “annoying” betrays a disconnect with the American people on the whole.
Furthermore, for Cain to insinuate that Ron Paul’s campaign is deliberately seeking to sabotage Cain’s own platform smacks of desperation and paranoia to say the least……………..
The Internet has matured. Anonymity has become counterproductive and even damaging. If you’re willing to stand up and render a public opinion, you should reveal your identity. The time has come to limit the ability of people to remain anonymous.
In the early days of the experiment called America, the right to send in an anonymous letter to the editor was considered a hallmark of the constitutional right to free speech. Opinions under pseudonyms were common. Beginning in the Cold War era, newspaper editors developed a dislike for them because individuals could spew any sort of unfounded opinion without consequences and without backing an opinion up with any hard facts.
By the 1970s, editors started insisting that people identify themselves if they wanted the privilege of stating their views in a public forum. By 2000, most newspapers refused to accept anonymous letters to the editor in all but a few special cases.
When traditional newspapers started publishing online, they bumped up against established online rules of engagement. In their zeal to embrace this new model of information dissemination, editors once again accepted anonymous comments. In many cases they naively thought it would foster a positive sense of community and encourage greater reader engagement by allowing the ability to comment on virtually any news article…………

Since this spring’s blink-and-you-missed-it debate over reauthorization of several controversial provisions of the Patriot Act, Senators Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Mark Udall (D-CO) have been complaining to anyone who’d listen about a “Secret Patriot Act“—an interpretation of one of the law’s provisions by the classified Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court granting surveillance powers exceeding those an ordinary person would understand to be conferred from the text of the statute itself. As I argued at the time, there is an enormous amount of strong circumstantial evidence suggesting that this referred to a “sensitive collection program” involving cell phone location tracking—potentially on a mass scale—using Patriot’s “Section 215″ or “business records” authority.
Lest anyone think they’d let the issue drop, Wyden and Udall last week released a sharply-worded letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, blasting the Justice Department for misleading the public about the scope of the government’s surveillance authority. The real audience for an open letter of this sort, of course, is not the nominal recipient, but rather the press and the public. Beyond simply reminding us that the issue exists, the letter confirms for the first time that the “secret law” of which the senators had complained does indeed involve Section 215. But there are some additional intriguing morsels for the attentive surveillance wonk.
The letter focuses particularly on “highly misleading” statements by Justice Department officials analogizing Section 215 powers to grand jury subpoenas. “As you know,” Wyden and Udall write, “Section 215 authorities are not interpreted in the same way that grand jury subpoena authorities are, and we are concerned that when Justice Department officials suggest that the two authorities are ‘analogous’ they provide the public with a false understanding of how surveillance law is interpreted in practice.”

Owners of popular conservative websites have increasing reason to be concerned their sites may be hacked or otherwise physically attacked for political reasons. Traditionally, hackers took an anarchist approach that primarily targeted government websites. Lately, they are assailing politically conservative websites. Many of these newer attacks are coming from hackers associated with Wikileaks. Some libertarian conservatives defend Wikileaks’ business of leaking government documents, unaware that its affiliates are hypocritically trying to silence them. In addition to wreaking technical havoc, hackers have figured out they can use Google’s strict policy against deceptive website tactics to keep conservative websites hidden from the internet for long periods of time.
After Google banned my website, Intellectual Conservative, a few weeks ago due to some political enemies who had “cloaked” it, I decided to look into how prevalent the hacking of conservatives websites has become. Politically targeted hacking is known as “hactivism,” and is really a form of cyberterrorism. Not all attacks upon websites are considered hacking, some are less intrusive such as DDoS (distributed denial-of-service attack), where a website is continually pinged until it is forced to shut down.
A new powerful hacking organization surfaced this summer targeting conservatives in addition to………………….

FORMER U.S. AIR FORCE STAFF SERGEANT SAID HE WAS GOING TO ARREST OBAMA
by Sharon Rondeau
The Post & Email had scheduled an interview with Moran prior to the release of the video and had no advance knowledge of it.
In the video, Moran stated, “This is a national issue down to everybody, everywhere” and referenced the most recent arrest of Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III, whom he stated “has been fighting by himself for three years against this illegal president.”
Moran tells the military in the video to “Stop hiding Obama. Stop protecting him. He is a criminal.” He also referred to the lift of the ban on homosexuals in the military and directly addressed outgoing Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Michael Mullen, stating that homosexuality is a sin. “If I sound angry, it’s because I am,” Moran said. He added, “Call your Secret Service, coward…wimp…coward…You have no proof of who you are.”…………
How many sincerely believe that Obama has been waiting to exploit the right calamity to at first impose martial law, then suspend the 2012 election?
The Re-Election of Obama by suspended elections?
- Judi McLeod Wednesday, September 28, 2011

The fool proof way for Barack Obama to guarantee his re-election would be to suspend the 2012 election.
Perdue’s proposal dropped like the proverbial bombshell at a Rotary Club event was offered as a means for politicians to gain time to tackle crippling unemployment and a stagnant economy.
Was Perdue stretching for Rotarian attention or advancing an idea already on Obama’s agenda?
“I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover,” Gov. Perdue, a Democrat, said, according to a report by the Raleigh News & Observer. “You want people who don’t worry about the next election.” (Fox News, Sept. 27, 2011).

Spin, baby, spin. Throughout his frenetic jobs tour across the West this week, President Obama tried to seize the narrative. Republicans, he told champagne-sipping, tea party-trashing Hollywood moguls and tech titans, are intolerant bigots, know-nothings and thugs. They’ve made his hair “grayer” and left him “all dinged up.”
But who’s battering whom? Since Day One, Obama has been the Chicago bully in victim’s clothing. The mask is wearing thin.
On Tuesday, Detroit News reporter Daniel Howes reported that White House officials leaned on Ford Motor Company to yank a popular TV and Internet ad critical of competitors who took federal bailout money. According to Howes, “Ford pulled the ad after individuals inside the White House” questioned the firm’s CEO Alan Mulally (who had earlier supported the bailout despite his company’s refusal to participate). Howes concluded: “You’re not allowed, in Obama’s America, to disparage the Auto bailout, or — indirectly — Obama. Especially during the election cycle.”
Both Ford and the White House officially deny any political pressure received or applied. But White House press flack Dan Pfeiffer refused to answer when I asked him whether anyone at the White House had ever contacted anyone at Ford to complain about the bailout ad. Ford’s social media director told me he personally “had no knowledge” of any contacts. While he disputed the gist of Howes’ report, the Ford official would not call for a correction or retraction.
Chris McDaniel, the real-life Ford customer who starred in the offending ad, told BigGovernment.com editor Larry O’Connor that he was exasperated when he heard about the Ford fiasco: “Now we have the federal government butting their nose into this TV ad. Another example of them getting involved in things they have no business getting involved in. Where is the free speech of American citizens?”
He better watch out for the Obama campaign‘s official snitch brigade at AttackWatch.com. After a curious hiatus, the online speech monitors are up and running again. Coincidentally enough, the site (run by several George Soros-trained operatives) targeted conservative auto bailout critics just two weeks ago.
A left-wing Washington Post writer immediately scoffed at concerns about the administration’s heavy hand because the Ford fiasco “is being denied by the parties on both sides.” Must be nice to mainline White House talking points for a living. For the rest of us, reality intrudes.
This is the administration that threatened health insurers for candidly tying Obamacare mandates to rising premiums.
This is the administration that pummeled companies such as Deere, Caterpillar, Verizon and AT&T for speaking out about the cost implications and financial burdens of Obamacare — and then cheered from the sidelines while Democratic Rep. Henry Waxman attempted to haul the firms up for a congressional witch-hunt inquisition.
This is the administration that has seized Gibson Guitars’ instruments and has threatened whistleblowers who exposed bloody corruption and incompetence behind the Operation Fast and Furious gun-walking racket.
And lest they need a reminder, this is an administration that has clamped down on mainstream media reporters, too.
The Pleasanton (CA) Weekly was bullied by the White House press shop over a benign article that irked the administration because it made Michelle Obama look snooty.
The San Francisco Chronicle was punished by the White House because a print pool reporter used a cellphone to record video of protesters at an Obama Bay Area fundraiser.
A WFAA-TV Texas reporter was dressed down by the president for having the audacity to interrupt.
The Boston Herald was spanked by the White House for running a front-page op-ed by GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
The White House denied any pressure in all those cases, too.
Before his campaign finance-grubbing swing ended, Obama met the pop singer Lady Gaga. She lobbied him to combat bullying across America. It was a little like Red Riding Hood lobbying the Big Bad Wolf to promote vegetarianism.
No one thinks Barack Obama is sitting pretty in this race for the White House. The Real Clear Politics average of the mid-September approval-rating polls measures him at 43 percent approval, 51 percent disapproval. With these numbers, they should be measuring his political coffin. But to listen to the networks talk, it’s the Republican field that is a mess in desperate need of new talent, and its debate audiences are a bloodthirsty horror movie.
One place that Democratic contenders go for positive publicity is the network morning shows. Their audiences are diminished, but they remain a powerful national platform, especially for female voters. Rich Noyes and Geoff Dickens of the Media Research Center have demonstrated how ABC, CBS and NBC set a pretty pleasant table for the Democratic candidates (and potential candidates like Al Gore) from Jan. 1 through July 31, 2007.
Back then, most of the questions were about the horse race, but 111 were questions that clearly reflected an ideological point of view. Of those, more than twice as many were softballs from the liberal perspective, 77 questions, than hardballs from the conservative side, 34. That doesn’t make sense if the intention was to challenge the candidates. It makes sense if the networks are trying to help Democrats.
Now fast forward to 2011. The MRC team found 98 ideological questions posed to Republican contenders (and potential contenders like Donald Trump) from Jan. 1 to Sept. 15. Guess what? The overwhelming majority of those questions, 81 of them, reflected the liberal agenda, while just 17 inquiries came from the right. That makes no sense in helping Republicans choose a nominee. But they hope to damage whoever the Republicans nominate.
The 5-to-1 disparity merely underlines that the networks do not carefully attempt to balance out their questions. In every election cycle, they present their liberal obsessions as the nation’s most pressing business.
The morning shows are especially fixated on raising taxes. It’s a looped tape this year. “Is raising taxes on the table? …What about raising taxes? … Does that revenue side include raising taxes? … Do you have to look at raising taxes, and do people have to pay more for what’s needed in this country?”
Four years ago, they praised Democrats for favoring tax hikes. On Feb. 5, 2007, NBC’s Matt Lauer saluted John Edwards: “I’m going to — I’ll applaud your honesty. You basically have come out and said, ‘Look, I want universal health care for everyone in this country, and I’m going to raise taxes to accomplish it.’”
That’s called a “question” to the Democrats — like this socialist softball from ABC’s Robin Roberts to Hillary Clinton on March 26, 2007: “A lot of people feel like they’re rolling the dice every morning about their health care. They can’t afford it,” Roberts declared. “And two-thirds — did you realize this? — two-thirds of Americans who do not have health insurance are working.”
ABC’s “Good Morning America” was noticeably interested in helping Democrats with long interviews four years ago. By this time in the election cycle, they had offered 38 minutes of airtime to John Edwards in a town-hall setting and 26 minutes to Hillary Clinton. None of the Republican candidates received that favor in 2007. None have received that favor in 2011, either.
It’s not hard to see a slant. Four years ago, Sen. Joe Biden’s pathetic campaign for president had earned him four morning-show interviews with 19 minutes of airtime — more than the apparent GOP front-runner, Rudy Giuliani, who was offered three interviews taking 17 minutes.
Then there are the evening shows. By this point in 2007, CBS “60 Minutes” correspondent Steve Kroft had already offered a first supportive “60 Minutes” interview with Obama, in January, asking if the “country is ready for a black president.” In May, Mike Wallace pelted Mitt Romney and his family with nasty questions, such as why none of his five sons ever joined the military. None of the Republican candidates have been featured on “60 Minutes” this year.
Republicans may not be eager to face hardball interviews with liberal network anchors, but they feel it’s necessary to be considered a viable national candidate. When they sit down on a network set, they know the anchors aren’t there to make their presidential dreams come true. They know they’ll be lucky if their campaign doesn’t vanish with the next gotcha question.
Considering all this, it’s a little amazing that Obama is doing so poorly that he only beats Ron Paul by four points in the latest CNN poll. If Obama loses, no one can blame the liberal media.
“Why would you normalize trade with a country that sponsor terror?” Rep. Michele Bachmann asked an audience of supporters in Cedar Rapids, Iowa Monday, in response to a question about her position on trading with Cuba.
“There are reports that have come out that Cuba has been working with another terrorist organization called Hizbullah,” she said.
The Shiite party “is looking at wanting to be part of missile sites in Iran and, of course, when you are 90 miles offshore from Florida, you don’t want to entertain the prospect of hosting bases or sites where Hizbullah could have training camps or perhaps have missile sites or weapons sites in Cuba. This would be foolish,” she added.

As Ambrose Evans-Pritchard reported, Germany’s finance minister Wolfang Schauble has launched a stinging rebuke to the Obama administration after Washington pushed for the European Union to boost its EFSF bail out fund. After Obama declared that the European financial crisis is “scaring the world”, Schauble shot back at the US president by warning: “It’s always much easier to give advice to others than to decide for yourself. I am well prepared to give advice to the US government.” He also made it clear what he thought of the idea of increasing the 440 billion euro lending limit, a position supported by US Treasury Chief Tim Geithner:
I don’t understand how anyone in the European Commission can have such a stupid idea. The result would be to endanger the AAA sovereign debt ratings of other member states. It makes no sense.
It is rather ironic that Barack Obama, who has probably done more damage to the American economy that any president in modern US history, is now lecturing European leaders on their financial problems as well. The Obama administration’s track record of out-of-control government spending and borrowing, a $1.3 trillion budget deficit (the largest since World War Two), combined with mammoth bailouts, has been nothing short of disastrous. 14 million Americans are out of work, the housing market is in a state of collapse, and job growth is practically non-existent outside of the Washington Beltway. And the advice his flailing government is now giving across the Atlantic will inevitably prolong the huge economic turmoil in Europe, rather than help bring it to an end.

But those same achievements are stirring resentment among many of its factory workers. And that is complicating contract talks between the company and its union employees.
As a result, Ford became a consumer favorite and the company prospered. It paid Mulally for engineering the turnaround and restored merit pay and some other benefits for white-collar workers, angering union members.
“The compensation for the CEO has been widely publicized, and those kinds of things wend their way up and down the assembly line,” says Harley Shaiken, a professor at the University of California at Berkeley and a specialist in labor issues. “It creates higher expectations.”
Ford compensation records obtained by The Associated Press shows that UAW-represented hourly workers have seen larger increases in pay and benefits over the last decade than many white-collar workers.

17 Facts That Prove That The Average American Family Is Getting Absolutely Pulverized By This Economy
Sept 28, 2011
How in the world does the average American family survive in this economy? The median household income is a little bit less than $50,000 a year right now. So let’s call that about $4000 a month. But before any of that money gets spent, you have to take out at least $1000 in taxes. That leaves about $3000 a month to pay all the bills with. With that $3000 you have to pay the mortgage (or rent), make the car payments, make the student loan payments, pay for power and water, pay for health insurance, pay for home insurance, pay for car insurance, pay the phone bill, pay the Internet bill and pay the cable bill. On top of all that, every member of the family needs three meals a day and the cars need to be filled up with gasoline or they won’t go anywhere. Of course I haven’t even mentioned expenses that don’t happen every month such as car repairs or new shoes. No wonder so many families are feeling so financially stressed!
The truth is that American families are getting squeezed harder than they have been in ages. The number of good jobs is declining, incomes are going down, and the cost of living just keeps going up.
The following are 17 facts that prove that the average American family is getting absolutely pulverized by this economy….
#1 The cost of a health insurance policy for the average American family rose by a whopping 9 percent last year. According to a report put out by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Health Research and Educational Trust, the average family health insurance policy now costs over $15,000 a year.
How in the world can most families afford that? Yes, in many cases employers are paying for at least a portion of that, but still that seems absolutely outrageous.
#2 Due to rising costs, a lot of employers are completely getting rid of health plans for their employees. In fact, the percentage of Americans covered by employer-based health plans has fallen for 11 years in a row……………
The social media empire Facebook has unveiled some new “features” on its platform in recent days that many allege are a total and compete privacy-breaching nightmare. But one hidden feature, discovered by Nik Cubrilovic, an Australian entrepreneur and writer, that few people are aware of is the fact that Facebook now monitors your online activity, even when you are not logged in to the service.
With each new change Facebook makes, users’ privacy becomes a little less … nonexistent, if you will. The most recent “News Feed” modifications, for example, display everything you say and do on the site to all of your “friends,” and even to the public. And now, even after logging out of Facebook, permanent “cookies” track all your movements on websites that contain Facebook buttons or widgets.
“Even if you are logged out, Facebook still knows and can track every page you visit,” Cubrilovic wrote on a recent blog posting. “The only solution is to delete every Facebook cookie in your browser, or to use a separate browser for Facebook interactions” (http://nikcub-static.appspot.com/lo…).
But how many Facebook users will actually know to do this? The site has never announced to its users that it is even tracking them in the first place, let alone given them any instructions on how to “opt-out” of this egregious invasion of privacy.
* A d v e r t i s e m e n t
Facebook, of course, has become infamous for simply changing its site setup, including privacy settings, and leaving it up to users to figure out how to contain their breached information after the fact. It has switched from an “opt-in” approach, where users used to be given the option to “upgrade” to new features, to a much more complicated “opt-out” approach, where Facebook makes drastic changes and leaves it up to users to somehow figure out how to change things back to the way they were (if such an option is even still possible).
“While initially opt-in, the default then seems to be expose everything,” says David Vaile, executive director of the University of New South Wales (UNSW) Cyberspace Law and Policy Centre, concerning Facebook’s “breathtaking and audacious grab for whole life data.”
“Facebook, once again, are (sic) doing things that are beyond most users’ capacity to understand while reducing their privacy … the default setting for any site should be ‘reveal nothing about me unless I make a specific choice otherwise.’”

Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura has sensationally called for Ron Paul to quit the Republican Party in order to form a Paul-Ventura libertarian ticket that can take on the establishment candidates in the race for the White House in 2012.
“Ron Paul can win, all you’ve got to do is activate and get the silent voters out to vote,” Ventura told the Alex Jones Show, adding that a Ron Paul-Ventura Libertarian ticket would create “incredible excitement”.
“Ron Paul needs to quit the Republican Party, get the nomination for the Libertarian Party,” said Ventura, adding that he would consider being in a Ron Paul cabinet if the Congressman won.
“I would be his best choice because I would be a great insurance policy,” joked Ventura, noting that nothing would happen to Ron Paul because it would mean he would be in power and would cause the establishment even greater problems than the Congressman.
Ventura cautioned that he would have to consult his wife before committing to being Ron Paul’s VP, but that he would be willing if she gave the green light.

Given that Ron Paul is already committed to the contest for the Republican nomination and is performing well, he is unlikely to switch to the Libertarian ticket. However, Ventura spoke of blazing a trail for future elections where he and Paul could team up, meaning we could yet see a Paul-Ventura ticket in 2016.
Others have remarked that Ron Paul is blazing the trail for his son Rand Paul. “I know a lot of people in the movement are looking at Rand Paul further down the road,” Paul’s New Hampshire campaign chairman, state Sen. Jim Forsythe recently told Politico.
Ventura has a notable post when it comes to running as an anti-establishment figure and being successful. He captured the Minnesota Governorship in 1998 by spending far less money to defeat the two major party candidates with an aggressive, populist, grass roots campaign.
