BELMONT, Maine — Mack Page was sound asleep in his bed at 11 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 3, when he was startled awake by the frantic barking of his black Labrador.
“What have I got now?” the 63-year-old commander of the Maine Militia remembers wondering. “A raccoon? A coyote?”
But it was none of those things. Instead, Page’s dark residence on a quiet Belmont road suddenly was lit up by men outside his windows carrying flashlights. He lives alone, he’s not in the best of health and he was scared.

Lesbians threaten to ‘steal your boyfriends’ in hilarious same-sex marriage spoof
DailyMail: Among the historic Election Night wins earlier this month were three states that voted in favor of gay marriage. Maine, Maryland and Washington State joined six others that already approve same-sex unions.
Two Maine news anchors resigned together at the end of Tuesday’s broadcast after “a longstanding battle with upper management over journalistic practices” including being expected to do politically unbalanced news, the Bangor Daily News reported.
Cindy Michaels and Tony Consiglio announced at the end of WVII-TV’s 6 p.m. newscast that it would be their final broadcast together.“And finally tonight, this will be Tony and my final show together here on ABC 7,” Michaels said.
(Associated Posers) – Richport, Maine – Although far outside of any danger zone from hurricane Sandy the incumbent mayor of Richport, Rodney Johnstone, is calling for elections to be post-poned for several weeks. “We will be getting heavy rains, possibly hail, for days. Roads will be flooded, trees will be down. People will not be able to reach polling locations”.
The mayor is polling several points behind challenger Henry Morgan who is already confident of a victory. He says the mayor’s call for delaying the election is “a ridiculous attempt to buy time”.
Sandy, which is barely a hurricane won’t be making landfall anywhere near Maine and definitely not as far north as Richport. The town residents have been taking the storm in stride, although local grocers have noticed a definite uptick in sales.
HOW IT FORMED
When framers were drafting the U.S. Constitution, there were two competing ideas on how to elect the president. One group said Congress should do it; the other said it should be a national vote of eligible citizens. There also were disputes over how much slaves should count in representation in Congress and over how power would be distributed between small and large states. The compromise became part of the second article of the Constitution, although the words “Electoral College” are not included. The electors pick the president and vice president.
As an anarcho-capitalist it is difficult for me to watch the election year shenanigans. But, it is still hard not to watch, like a car wreck, as Ron Paul supporters got the cold shoulder and the message. The Republican Party played some awfully dirty pool. Now the Ron Paul supporters have done the only sensible thing. They’ve taken their ball and gone home.
Ron Paul never had a real shot at being POTUS. But it was disgusting to watch the Republican National Convention make rule changes specifically designed to weaken Dr. Paul’s delegate count, and to make it harder for non-establishment candidates to gain any traction in future elections. Although, that’s just what happens in the world of politics—dirty pool is just “pool” in this world.
But by replacing 10 of the 24 Maine delegates, the RNC made sure that Dr. Paul’s name couldn’t even be submitted for nomination. The euphemism from the RNC is about providing “a united front.” The reality is they are taking away even the illusion of choosing real change, the sort that would have any effect on the fasco-communist police state axis of power in the US.
Now the Ron Paul supporters see just how hopelessly corrupt the Republican Party — the fascist wing of the single fasco-communist ruling party — is and they have staged a micro secession in Tampa. We here at TDV truly hope that those walkouts have lost all faith in the political process and that they have divorced themselves spiritually and emotionally from this farce. In other words, I hope they have achieved true individual secession and independence. Because, folks, doing so is the only answer.

Drowning out shouting Ron Paul supporters is not an easy thing to do. Republican delegates voting for Mitt Romney found this out Tuesday as Paul’s contingent chanted “Point of Order” and “Let Him Speak” as they witnessed the re-writing of the GOP rules, clearing the way for the unchallenged coronation of the now-official Republican nominee for president — Mitt Romney.
The RNC’s rule change effectively disenfranchised Republicans supporting anyone other than the Establishment’s man and left 10 of Maine’s 24 delegates locked out of the process, preventing them from casting votes for Ron Paul.
Railroaded and rejected, the unseated Maine delegates walked out of the Tampa Bay Times Forum, leaving the convention in the hands of the predetermined winner and his proxies.
“It’s a disgusting, disgusting display of a hostile takeover from the top down,” said Maine delegate Ashley Ryan, according to an article in the Los Angeles Times. “It’s an embarrassment,”
she’s quoted as saying.
Maine wasn’t alone in expressing its displeasure and disgust at the RNC’s pro-Romney rule manipulation.
Ashley Ryan knows an insult when she hears one. The Ron Paul delegate and incoming committeewoman of the Maine Republican Party described the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) radical re-writing of their rulebook as “a huge slap in the face.”

Attempts to divide and disrupt official Ron Paul delegate slates; Romney sends in lawyer that stole election for Bush in 2000
May 7, 2012
Two separate incidents captured on video this weekend reveal desperate attempts by Mitt Romney operatives to divide and disrupt official Ron Paul endorsed delegate slates by handing out fake ballots to attendees at the state conventions in Nevada and Maine.
The video below captured by Ron Paul supporters in Nevada on Saturday exposes a provocateur wearing a Ron Paul T-shirt being caught handing out a fake delegate ballot in an attempt to dilute Ron Paul supporters’ votes.
The ballot that the man was handing out looked very similar to the official Ron Paul endorsed slate, and was even printed on the same lime green colour paper. However, the names on the ballot were different.
It is not clear whether the man was officially affiliated with Romney, however, it is clear that he had a fake ID and was passing out fraudulent documents designed specifically to look like the official Ron Paul delegate slate for Nevada.
Watch the video:
A d v e r t i s e m e n t
Remarkably, this was not an isolated incident. The very same thing happened in Maine, indicating that there has been a coordinated effort by Romney operatives to trick Ron Paul supporters into diluting their votes.
As Paul campaign volunteer Ginger Taylor explains in the following video, Romney supporters circulated not one but two different slates, to make Paul voters think there had been a change in the official list of delegate nominees that were being endorsed by the Paul campaign.
AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — With Mitt Romney’s nomination all but decided, Ron Paul supporters wrested control of the Maine Republican Convention and elected a majority slate supporting the Texas congressman to the GOP national convention, party officials said as the two-day convention neared its end Sunday. The results gave the Texas congressman a late state victory.
The GOP establishment has resorted to vote fraud in almost every state
Paul Joseph Watson
Wednesday, February 22, 2012
Despite his runaway success in terms of straw poll victories, campaign contributions and grass roots energy, a plethora of evidence strongly indicates that Ron Paul is being cheated out of winning any of the Republican caucuses, with the GOP establishment desperate to prevent the Texan Congressman from building any kind of momentum that the likes of Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum have been afforded.
Even the establishment media is now being forced to report that “Ron Paul Might Have Won Maine,” with evidence of potential vote fraud targeted against Ron Paul prompting the state’s GOP chairman Charles Webster to ask for a recount.
With just 84 per cent of the votes being counted, and with many towns and counties showing strong support for Ron Paul having not yet cast their votes, the media along with the Republican establishment brazenly declared Mitt Romney to be the winner, despite him having just a 194 vote lead over Ron Paul.
Erroneous reports of a snowstorm were cited as a pretext to cancel the caucus in Washington County, an area heavily dominated by Paul supporters, delaying the vote for a week. Voters in the county are still waiting to cast their ballots.
Ron Paul – Predictions in Due Time [Video]

This is Ron Paul’s famous Predictions speech from April 24, 2002. This is the original video compiling recent images and video to give his speech a chilling effect.
Will Mitt Romney‘s “victory” in the February 11 Maine presidential caucuses be taken away like his phony victory in Iowa? That now seems quite possible. The Maine GOP declared the former Massachusetts Governor the narrow winner of the state’s presidential caucus February 11, but Romney’s 194-vote margin of victory over Texas Congressman Ron Paul is being whittled away as more results have been reported.
Moreover, the state’s rural Washington County – along with a few other communities that postponed their caucuses February 11 – will hold the final caucuses Saturday, February 18 and may decide the victor of the non-binding straw poll.
But GOP Party Chairman Charlie Webster insists that he will not release updated results from the additional caucuses, even as he comes under increasing fire from his fellow Maine Republicans and national Ron Paul campaign officials. In results in the three counties that have been released to the public, Ron Paul won more votes than were reported in the official results. Webster claims that the missing votes – when all of them are counted — will favor Romney, and that he is not going to give the press access to updated results. “No one has access,” he told the Daily Caller February 15. “There will be no access. We will give it to the committee on March 10. We are not going to release them [the missing votes]. People can whine and complain and plead, but I’m not going to make them public.”
Last Saturday, the Maine Republican Party declared Mitt Romney the winner of the Maine caucuses. The non-binding caucuses were a low turnout affair, but Romney’s victory over Ron Paul – who he beat by less than 200 votes – was a chance for Romney to reclaim some momentum in the wake of Rick Santorum‘s three-state sweep four days earlier.
Now, however, it looks like Romney could ultimately be stripped of that victory. If that happens, it will be the second time this cycle Romney has been stripped of a caucus victory. The first came in Iowa, where Santorum was declared the winner following a (flawed) recount.
The Maine GOP allowed communities to schedule their caucuses between Feb. 4 and Feb. 11 if they wanted them to be counted in the final tally. Some areas elected to schedule their caucuses outside that window, and the Maine GOP said those caucuses would not count. Fair enough. But according to the Bangor Daily News, some caucuses that took place within the designated window were also not counted.
By now, it is clear that the Maine caucuses were a complete mess.
Evidence is mounting that Mitt Romney’s 194-vote victory over Ron Paul was prematurely announced, if not totally wrong. Washington County canceled their caucus on Saturday on account of three inches of snow (hardly a blizzard by Maine standards), and other towns that scheduled their caucuses for this week have been left out of the vote count. Now, it looks like caucuses that did take place before Feb. 11 have also been left out of final tally.
As the full extent of the chaos unfolds, sources close to the Paul campaign tell Business Insider that it is looking increasingly like Romney’s team might have a hand in denying Paul votes, noting that Romney has some admirably ruthless operatives on his side and a powerful incentive to avoid a fifth caucus loss this month.
According to the Paul campaign, the Maine Republican Party is severely under-reporting Paul’s results — and Romney isn’t getting the same treatment. For example, nearly all the towns in Waldo County — a Ron Paul stronghold – held their caucuses on Feb. 4, but the state GOP reported no results for those towns. In Waterville, a college town in Central Maine, results were reported but not included in the party vote count. Paul beat Romney 21-5 there, according to the Kennebec County GOP.
What are they hiding? Maine GOP adds missing caucus votes, but wouldn’t release them to the public (“Maine Republican Party has updated and additional votes “accidentally” omitted from last day’s Maine caucus. However Maine’s state party man Charlie Webster said those votes won’t be publicly released. Why? “)
Pressure Mounting For GOP Caucus Reconsideration (Ron Paul Winning Maine After All?!?) ~ “The Maine GOP announced Saturday that Romney narrowly edged Ron Paul, 39 percent to 36 percent, in a nonbinding presidential preference poll taken during the caucuses. The margin was fewer than 200 votes.”
The Maine GOP announced Saturday that Romney narrowly edged Ron Paul, 39 percent to 36 percent, in a nonbinding presidential preference poll taken during the caucuses. The margin was fewer than 200 votes.
A number of communities were not included in that poll because they had not held their caucuses by the deadline spelled out by the state party.
Washington County Republicans postponed their caucuses, originally scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 11, because of a pending snowstorm and will now meet this Saturday. Other communities across the states also have caucuses scheduled for this weekend and later this month.
All along, state GOP officials said communities knew that their votes would not be included in the final results if they did not hold their caucus by Feb. 11.
However, a review of the town-by-town results released Saturday by the Maine GOP suggests that some communities that had caucused prior to Feb. 11 were not counted. Nearly all Waldo County towns held caucuses on Feb. 4 but those towns were blank in the results released by the state party. Additionally, Waterville held its caucuses ahead of time but were not included in the results.
Waldo County GOP Chairman Raymond St. Onge said the results were sent to the state party on Tuesday, Feb. 7. He said those results probably would not have changed the outcome but was disheartened the votes were not included.
St. Onge said he spoke to party officials late Tuesday about why Waldo County’s results were omitted.
“They said it was a clerical error,” St. Onge said. “I’m going to believe them because there were other errors that occurred. I don’t think it was intentional because our results wouldn’t have changed the winner.”
Maine GOP Chairman Charlie Webster said Monday that including all caucus votes likely would not change the outcome of the state’s preference poll. Asked whether the party would consider updating the result to include all communities, he said that is up to the state party committee, which meets next month.
Some big names already are urging the party to reconsider.
“I think it’s not surprising that there would be very strong objections to the notion that our votes wouldn’t count in Washington County,” Senate President Kevin Raye, R-Perry, said Tuesday. “I’ve made known my position that those votes should count and the [GOP] chair said he would take that request to the state committee.”
L. Sandy Maisel, professor of government at Colby College and a Democrat, said the perception seems to be that because the Maine Republican Party establishment largely supported Romney, it was selective when tallying the results.
“It sure looks like they counted what they wanted to count,” he said.
Paul supporters have taken to Facebook to generate interest in Maine’s remaining caucuses. Even Paul supporters in New Hampshire are planning a get out the vote effort in Washington County’s biggest towns this weekend.
We know that Ron Paul has powerful enemies and an uphill fight the whole way. But we are starting to turn the tide. Throughout 2011 the establishment pundits kept saying that Ron Paul had a ceiling; “5%, ok maybe 10%“.
Then came the Iowa Caucuses – “Now we know what Ron Paul’s definite ceiling is: it’s 21%.”
Then came New Hampshire – “Ron Paul’s high water mark is 23%, he will go downhill from here.”
Then came Minnesota – “Ron Paul’s ceiling is 27%, that’s as much as he will ever get.”
A few days later Ron Paul got 36% of the vote in Maine, and lo and behold, the pundits stopped talking about the “ceiling”.
They know that even if Ron Paul‘s support stopped growing overnight, a 36% ceiling in a hypothetical three-way race in the general election is pretty darn good – and just about enough to win the Presidency!
Ron Paul‘s supporters have launched a massive moneybomb donation event for today. They know that only Ron Paul can beat Obama and that any vote for Romney, Santorum or Gingrich is a wasted vote because those establishment candidates would lose in a landslide against Obama.
If you agree with this sentiment, help us send a clear message to the GOP establishment and participate in the “No One But Paul” moneybomb. Check out the grassroots-run NoOneButPaul.com website and/or donate directly at Ron Paul’s official campaign website RonPaul2012.com.
Would you vote for anyone but Ron Paul in the general election? The results of a survey conducted by RonPaul.com (Which Potential GOP Tickets Would Ron Paul Supporters Vote For?) seem to indicate that the GOP direly needs Ron Paul on the ticket to secure the liberty movement’s support.
The mass media have repeated the official results for the Maine GOP presidential caucuses that former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney narrowly beat Texas Congressman Ron Paul by a 39 percent to 36 percent margin. But the official results are incomplete. And postponement of the results from one of Ron Paul’s strongest counties, Washington County, because of a forecasted snowstorm may alone have tipped the balance in Romney’s favor.
Ron Paul’s campaign confidently predicted victory when the final votes are tallied. “Only 194 votes [statewide] stand between Paul and a first place victory,” RonPaul 2012 blogger Jack Hunter pointed out in a post after the media declared Romney the winner. “Washington County is a stronghold for Paul and has yet to report. It might be a week before we know the final outcome there and Washington County is expected to yield 200 votes or more.” Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum placed third with 18 percent of the vote in the official Maine caucus statewide vote tally, while former House Speaker Newt Gingrich placed fourth with six percent of the vote.

Tonight the campaign of 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul sent an email to supporters regarding today’s caucus results from the state of Maine. See below for a portion of comments from Ron Paul 2012 Campaign Manager John Tate.
“Ron Paul will win the most delegates out of Maine tonight.
“In fact, he will probably even win the ‘beauty contest’ straw poll the media has already called for Mitt Romney – even before all the votes have been tallied.
“In Washington County – where Ron Paul was incredibly strong – the caucus was delayed until next week just so the votes wouldn’t be reported by the national media today.
“Of course, their excuse for the delay was ‘snow.’
“That’s right. A prediction of 3-4 inches – that turned into nothing more than a dusting – was enough for a local GOP official to postpone the caucuses just so the results wouldn’t be reported tonight.

With 84 percent of precincts reporting, Romney has 39 percent to Paul’s 36 percent, and Maine GOP Chairman Charlie Webster declared Romney the winner Saturday night, following a week-long series of caucuses.
But in Washington County, where Paul had expected to perform well, the caucus was postponed until Feb. 18 due to an expected snowstorm. Washington County Republican Chairman Chris Gardner told the AP he had no idea when the caucuses were postponed that his county would no longer count toward the grand total.
“This is an outrage,” John Tate, Paul’s campaign manager, said in an email to supporters. “But our campaign is in this race to win, and will stay in it to the very end.”
Paul’s campaign has accused the local GOP of postponing the caucuses to prevent the results from being reported on Saturday, arguing that “just the votes of Washington County would have been enough to put us over the top.”
The campaign is also dismissing the notion that weather was a reasonable excuse for the caucuses to be put off.
“This is Maine we’re talking about,” Tate said. “The Girl Scouts had an event today in Washington County that wasn’t cancelled!”
Paul’s aides have maintained that the Texas congressman will wind up with the most delegates from Maine, despite Romney’s apparent victory Saturday night. Maine’s caucuses are non-binding, and delegates are selected at a state convention in May.
“We were a little bit disappointed last night,” Paul said Sunday on CBS’s Face the Nation. “But we were disappointed that the one county where we have done the best in the past, and we were expected to do the best, they canceled their caucus.”

Ron Paul turns to Minnesota
February 5, 2012
Reporting from Washington— The last time Nevada Republicans caucused in a presidential contest, they delivered a stunning second-place finish to Texas Rep. Ron Paul, the libertarian-minded candidate who had been largely written off, averaging last place in polls leading up to caucus day.
The lesson was that Paul may not appeal to a broad base of voters, but the people who like him can be counted on to turn up and disproportionately represent themselves at caucus events, which typically draw few participants.
Four years later, Paul has turned the lesson of Nevada into a national campaign strategy, focusing his attention on caucus states where his loyal followers could keep him in the delegate hunt.
While Mitt Romney walked home an inevitable victory in the winner takes all Florida primary this week, the Ron Paul 2012 campaign was busy campaigning in Maine and Nevada, where the Congressman’s team has been busy building on a six figure ad buy.
Paul’s campaign has a lot riding on Nevada where the Congressman, scheduled to hold a major press conference in Las Vegas today, has polled consistently high for weeks.
Indeed, Paul has been running ads in The Silver State since last summer in anticipation of the caucuses which begin this Saturday, Feb 4th. When Paul unveiled his centerpiece budget plan last October, he did it in Las Vegas.
Four years ago Paul placed second in Nevada behind Mitt Romney. This time around Paul’s support has grown exponentially, while Romney’s has more or less remained the same. The Congressman has had two offices open in Nevada for months and has amassed a sizeable army of volunteers to canvass for the campaign, just as he did in Iowa and New Hampshire. In contrast, Newt Gingrich only opened an office in the state last weekend.
Furthermore, as noted in the Wall Street Journal today:
Paul’s core supporters have been campaigning in Nevada since September, and a group of Paul backers made a coordinated effort to become elected as Republican officers in their local party groups after a delegate dispute in the state party convention in 2008. “The ground game and the grass-roots activity never stopped,” said Carl Bunce, chairman of Mr. Paul’s campaign in Nevada.
As the article notes, it is Paul and Romney that hold the cards in Nevada – Paul because of his strong organization, and Romney because Mormons account for more than one-quarter of caucus-goers.
Paul has chosen to focus on Nevada because TV advertising is cheaper and independents are eligible to vote in the caucuses.
A d v e r t i s e m e n t
The Congressman is tapping into the $13.3 million that his campaign raised in the fourth quarter of 2011. Paperwork submitted to the Federal Election Commission Tuesday revealed that Paul hauled in over $3.5 million more than Newt Gingrich. The former Speaker of the House is also in debt to the tune of $1.2 million.
Rick Santorum resides way behind in terms of contributions, with just $915,000 for Q4, still by far, his best fundraising quarter for the year, however.
Romney tapped into his vast establishment connections and brought in $24.3 million between October and the end of the year.

Senators ‘Disappointed’ by Omission of Radical Islam From Homegrown Terror Document
Published December 09, 2011 | FoxNews.com
Two prominent senators chided the Obama administration for releasing a strategic plan on homegrown terror that doesn’t mention radical Islam and likens domestic extremism to “gang violence” and “sexual offenses.”
Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, criticized that classification at a hearing earlier this week, and along with Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., issued the statement Thursday questioning why the Obama administration omitted Islam from its latest document.
Prison Planet.com » TSA Backs Off Independent X-Ray Scanner Safety Test Knowing Truth Came Out in 1998
Thursday, November 17, 2011
After reports as far back as 1998 surfaced and revealed that the TSA’s X-ray scanners could be causing around100 cases of cancer per year conservatively, the TSA announced that it would be launching an ‘independent’ study over the safety of the machines.
During a senate hearing following the explosive nature of the report, TSA administrator John Pistole agreed to a request by Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine to examine the health effects of the TSA x-ray scanners by commissioning an independent study.
People are commonly said to remember their location when told of President John F Kennedy‘s assassination, but many must also wish the place they had been on 22 November 1963 was Dallas, where they might somehow have diverted the motorcade or prevented Lee Harvey Oswald from entering the Texas School Book Depository.
The possibility of such an intervention must number, along with its darker twin of going back and killing Hitler, among the principal fantasies of time travel, and is explored in the 54th work of fiction by Stephen King.
In 11.22.63, Jake Epping, a schoolteacher in Maine (a childhood reference point as recurrent in King’s fiction as New Jersey in Philip Roth‘s), is summoned by the owner of Al’s Diner, a local eaterie that has become popular but also suspect as a result of being able to sell, in 2011, burgers at near-1950s prices.
The restaurateur, now mortally ill, has found a portal in his pantry that leads to a particular day in 1958, where the time-traveller can begin a stay lasting months or even potentially years, always returning two minutes later. Cancer has interrupted Al during a five-year mission to prevent the event that he believes to have misdirected American history: JFK’s death. With the moral arm-lock of a dying man, Al passes on the task to Jake.

When Maine Militia State Commander Mack Page read an article about the “armed anti-government movement” of the radical right in a Time magazine cover story in September, he decided that it was time to take action.Positive action, that is.Page wants to let people know that the Maine Militia — which he said is adding members by the day — is not a threat to them, but rather a law-abiding group that aims to function sort of like a backup to the Maine National Guard.
Though he was vague about the actual numbers of militia members — “somewhere between 1 and 3,500,” he said — there are dozens of core members in Waldo County alone, and chapters are found in 13 of Maine’s 16 counties.“We take care of the people. We’re not interested in fighting foreign wars,” Page said in an interview in one of the restored train cars on his rail-yard property at the head of the Passagassawaukeag River. “The state of Maine is our charge.”The Time story, by Barton Gellman, reported, “Scores of armed antigovernment groups … have formed or been revived during the Obama years, according to law-enforcement agencies and outside watchdogs.
A six-month TIME investigation reveals that recruiting, planning, training and explicit calls for a shooting war are on the rise, as are criminal investigations by the FBI and state authorities.”According to Page, the Maine Militia emphasizes self-reliance, tradition, preparedness and community service — not training assault teams to take on military targets with M16 rifles during mock combat episodes, as was described in grim detail in the Time story.“We’re not looking to do anything aggressive,” said another member, who preferred to be identified only as John.Excerpt Read more at bangordailynews.com …
Tea-party activists, keen to build on their success toppling GOP incumbents in primaries this year, are already targeting more Republican veterans in the 2012 election. GOP senators like Bob Corker, above, have drawn criticism from tea-party activists for some of the positions they have taken over the years. Sen. Olympia Snowe of Maine, one of the most liberal Republicans in Congress, already has a conservative GOP primary opponent.
Sen. Orrin Hatch R., Utah, Sen. Bob Corker R., Tenn. and Sen. Richard Lugar R., Indiana have all drawn fire from the right wing of their party. Tea-party activists have put these and other incumbents on notice that the anti-establishment sentiment defining this year’s politics will not end on Election Day 2010. It is too early to say if these incumbents will face serious peril when they are up for re-election in 2012, but they are already taking steps to burnish their conservative credentials. “The tea party is right,” said Ms. Snowe, who is campaigning for a tea-party-backed gubernatorial candidate in Maine this fall.
“We’ve lost our way on fiscal issues.” The threat of a primary challenge may put more pressure on Republicans to steer clear of compromise with Democrats when Congress reconvenes. When the Senate recently voted on small-business tax breaks, the bill drew support from only two Republicans—both of whom are leaving office at the end of this term. Centrist efforts to compromise on an extension of expiring Bush-era tax cuts fizzled. Even Ms. Snowe, a perennial swing vote on taxes, resisted agreement with Democrats on the issue. Tea-party challenges to GOP establishment candidates in this year’s primaries showed how committed conservative activists are to changing the party from within.
Who is in Charge of the “New World Order?,” Part 2
In the 1930s and 1940s the Chamber of Commerce blanket organizations went for planning in a big way. Control of supply and demand was seen as the answer to “problems” of unequal distribution. Unequal distribution was seen as the main cause of war. The quotes that follow are but a few examples of plans for change proposed by the U. S. and International Chambers of Commerce……

A Thank You From Michelle ObamaMichelle Antoinette ObamaFor only the second time in my adult life, I am not ashamed of my country.
I want to thank the hard working American people for paying $242,000 plus a few hundred thou in additional expenses for my vacation in Spain. My daughter Sasha, several long-time family friends, my personal staff and various guests had a wonderful time. Honestly, you just haven’t lived until you have stayed in a $2,500.00 per night suite at a 5-Star luxury hotel. We only booked 70 rooms for our friends, staff and family. Thank you also for the use of Air Force 2 and the 70 Secret Service personnel who tagged along to be sure we were safe and cared for at all times — with our 13-vehicle convoy.
Air Force 2 only used 47,500 gallons of jet fuel for this trip and carbon emissions were a mere 1,031 tons of CO2. It costs only $11,500 per hour to operate Air Force 2 and each additional plane for the other members of our party group.
These are only rough estimates, but they are close who’s counting?.
That’s quite a carbon footprint as my good friend Al Gore would say, so we must ask the American citizens to drive smaller, more fuel efficient cars and drive less too, so we can lessen our combined carbon footprint.I know times are hard and millions of you are struggling to put food on the table and trying to make ends meet.
I do appreciate your sacrifice and do hope you find work soon. I was really exhausted after Barack took our family on a luxury vacation in Maine a few weeks ago. I just had to get away for a few days.
