Government Pursuit of LtCol Chessani Continues; Marine Ordered to Face Board of Inquiry

Chessani Case - Chessani Head Shot - FinalANN ARBOR, MI – Nearly four years after the so-called “Haditha Massacre,” an investigation conducted by over 65 NCIS agents (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) ─ the largest investigation in that agency’s history ─ with the expenditure of millions of taxpayer dollars, and prosecution losses at every stage of the criminal process, the government has decided to give up on the criminal prosecution against Marine LtCol Jeffrey Chessani.  Nonetheless, the battle for this loyal Marine officer continues.

On Friday, August 28, 2009,  the new general in charge of LtCol Chessani’s case, Marine LtGen George Flynn, Commanding General of the Marine Corps Combat Development Command in Quantico, VA, decided that criminal charges were not warranted.  Instead, he ordered LtCol Chessani to face an administrative procedure called a “Board of Inquiry.”  [General - PDF Linkssee order here]

House Resolution 615 – Force Congress to enroll themselves in their new plan
Fleming House Member ^ | Congressman John Fleming

House Resolution 615

Over the past few weeks, members of Congress and the American people have come to know the details of the Administration’s proposed health care plan. Call it whatever you like, I believe this proposal is nothing more than government-run health care. As a physician, I am amazed at the number of bureaucrats in this House who are quick to claim a government-run health care plan is the reform this country needs. In response to this, I have offered a resolution that will offer members of Congress an opportunity to put their money where their mouth is, and urge their colleagues who vote for legislation creating a government-run health care plan to lead by example and enroll themselves in the same public plan.

Impending Crash?
The Market Ticker ^ | 8/31/09 | Karl Denninger

Posted on Monday, August 31, 2009 12:21:06 PM by FromLori

You have to wonder when you see statistics like this (through 9:30 this morning):

Remove SPY, ETFC and LEHMQ (none of which trade on the NYSE) from the list and you get 606 million shares.

How many shares have traded in total with one hour in?

1.491 billion.

Forty percent of the volume is comprised of four used dogfood stocks, just as we’ve seen for the last couple of weeks – all people passing shares back and forth among each other, many of it being “computer HFT games.”

The other used dog-food stocks (LEHMQ and ETFC) are really no better; they just don’t trade on the NYSE. Lehman is particularly ridiculous as that’s a formally-bankrupt company!

Fannie and Freddie are two of the most outrageous abuses I’ve seen in a long time, second only to AIG. All three of these should be delisted as their equity value is quite literally bupkis.

This just goes to illustrate – the market is currently being levitated on literal trash. Again today we see the Casino trying to suck in people; I got emails from two more associates over the weekend telling me that their “advisors” are telling them “you have too much cash allocated; now is the time to buy.”

Now is the time to buy, after a 50% move?! Where the hell were these so-called “advisors” at SPX 666!

83 Percent of All Statistics are Made Up on the Spot
By Dr. Tim Ball

Saki (H.H Munro) said, “A little inaccuracy sometimes saves tons of explanation.” Today we have tons of inaccuracy and very little explanation. Most inaccuracies come from claims based on non-existent or inadequate historical data, extremely crude estimates, computer model projections, or are simply incorrect. It’s prevalent in environmental issues but particularly bad with climate and animal extinctions. The reason is because they’re the most politicized, which automatically takes them further from the truth. As Henry Adams said, “Practical politics consists of ignoring the truth.”

Alinsky, Beck, Satan and Me

http://newsrealblog.com/2009/08/16/alinsky-beck-satan-and-me/
For this first post, let’s just focus on the dedication of the book — to Satan:

“Lest we forget, an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical:” (Pause there for second. Now continue): “from all our legends, mythology, and history(and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.”

So Alinsky begins by telling readers what a radical is. He is not a reformer of the system but its would-be destroyer. This is something that in my experience conservatives have a very hard time understanding. Conservatives are altogether too decent, too civilized to match up adequately, at least in the initital stages of the battle, with their adversaries. They are too prone to give them the benefit of the doubt. They assume that radicals can’t really want to destroy a society that is democratic and liberal and has brought wealth and prosperity to so many. Oh yes they can. That is in fact the essence of what it means to be a radical — to be willing to destroy the values, structures and institutions that sustain the society we live in. Marx himself famously cited Alinsky’s first rebel (using another of his names — Mephistopheles): “Everything that exists deserves to perish.”

GOD HELP ME FIND AND SAVE AMERICA
BLESS THE TROOPS AND THEIR FAMILIES
August 29, 2009
Greetings
I have been asked recently and often: “Bean, what about joining or forming up a militia or something..should I look for one to join or even form my own group?”
Well, that’s a large undertaking to explain in a few simple words, but I’ll give a hack at it. You may be surprised, disappointed, or angry with the answer I give you but bear with me. I think there are things here to say and discuss before anyone gets as far as forming up armed platoons and picking leaders. First we need to look at some history concerning militias, take notes, this is all applicable to any modern day militia though the story is millennia old.
WHAT IS A MILITIA?
If you ask one group of people they’ll say they are armed patriots who operate training camps and plan to fight America’s enemies through use of military level force. Ask another group and they’ll say militias are weekend warriors who like parading around in camo outfits, shooting guns, drinking beer, and talking about how all the unamericans are gonna “get theirs.” The truth is more the former than the latter but both do exist certainly.
In the classic definition of a militia: it’s composed of a group of loosely organized citizens who are armed with their own personal weaponry and may be called upon through some prearranged signal to fight in unorthodox or guerrilla actions against an enemy invasion or coup attempt and it’s stated purpose is to save and preserve a government or community until the formal army can respond and assume control. These citizen soldiers may also be called upon to join the formal army at this point and continue to fight alongside them. This is a vast simplification but it will suffice for here.

The Middle Finger has always been the Kennedy family crest
The Collins Report ^ | August 31, 2009 | Kevin “Coach” Collins

Posted on Monday, August 31, 2009 9:02:27 AM by jmaroneps37

I don’t know what the listed Kennedy family crest looks like. It may be a drunken “liberal lion” driving off a bridge for all I know.

Nevertheless, on Saturday during the funeral for “Sir” Edward Kennedy we got a glimpse of the real Kennedy family crest proudly displayed by one of Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg’s daughters Rose 21 or Tatiana 18.

One of these “lovely” damsels held up her middle finger to a FOX TV camera for her adoring fans to feast on.

The Kennedy family crest has always been the middle finger.

The patriarch of the family, Joseph senior regularly displayed the crest when he became rich as a bootlegger and openly supported the Nazis while ambassador to England during WW II.

In 1960 according to his family Sam Giancana was visited by Joseph Kennedy to offer him a deal: Giancana would get an “open door” to the Oval Office in return for his help in swinging Chicago to Kennedy. Keep in mind it’s common knowledge voting machines from Republican areas in Chicago disappeared. That was a big display of the Kennedy crest.

In an explosive interview by Dr. Laurie Roth on her syndicated West Coast radio show on August 7th with Douglas Hagmann — a respected journalist, director of the Northeast Intelligence Network, and longtime private investigator, and Judi McLeod, a prolific journalist and the managing editor of Canada Free Press — the reason for the media blackout about the birth-certificate issue was nothing less than organized Mafia-like dire threats to members of the media issued not only from the heads of major TV and radio stations but also from Federal Communication Commission officials!

Since early February, we’ve seen increasing numbers of militant right-wing activists attending public meetings across the country targeting Members of Congress and President Obama. Now in the August recess, the “tea-bagger” protesters and right-wing activists are showing up in larger numbers with a mission to be as disruptive as possible in the hopes of rattling Members of Congress and halting health care reform through pure spectacle and obstruction. Our response is shaped by 3 things:

* Our targets are Members of Congress who must vote “yes” for this bill. Our targets are not the right-wing extremists. The targets of these attacks are Members of Congress. Those Members are also our targets. We need to use these attacks as opportunities to work with the Members in ways that build our relationship in the field and bring us together as allies in health care reform. Members may be more receptive to partnering with us if they know we will help them combat the opposition. * Our core message is effective, and we should always come back to it. Our campaign plan has always anticipated opposition. No matter what the right-wingers bring up to distract the debate, we should always circle back to our key message. We are on the side of quality, affordable health care for everyone, and we are against turning over health care reform to the insurance companies and lobbyists who got us into this mess to begin with. We need to educate the press and the public that the protesters are aligned with the corporate lobbyists and insurance companies who are trying to stop reform.

Keep your hands off our health care; keep your hands off our Social Security; keep your hands off everything, just stay up there in Marxist Vineyard with your buddy skip Gates and go play a couple rounds of golf.”

In fact, I have a very good friend — I wonder if I should say this — one of my really good friends owns the golf course on Martha’s Vineyard. Now, there are two golf courses up there but “the” golf course on Marxist Vineyard is owned by a friend of mine and I’m told that arrangements have been made that Obama and his merry band of golfers is going to show up there a couple, three times this week.

How University Betrays Students

August 29, 2009

distorted.jpg(This article first appeared exactly five years ago.)

I’d only send my son to university if he had no talent.

He is going anyway, for the social life and the certificate. I warn him that after studying the Humanities and Social Sciences, he won’t be able to think independently or absorb information that doesn’t fit his programming.

The modern university is not devoted to truth, quite the opposite. Repressive fe-manism is rampant on campus but that is just a symptom of a more profound problem.

Modern Western “culture” is based on the fraudulent assumptions of the “Enlightenment,” an intellectual movement dating from the Eighteenth Century. This in turn was the product of the Illuminist program to create a new(secular) world order by denying the existence of God and immutable natural and spiritual laws.

In practice this means Arts students study a bunch of atheists who are presented as if they were Gods. Their professors act as high priests.

Like deaf men tuning a piano, they try to explain the human condition without any reference to the Creator, Design or man’s Divine Spirit.

They portray mankind as a forlorn animal in an amoral world, characterized by a merciless struggle for survival.

They celebrate human “freedom” by which they mean the freedom to reject God’s Order, indulge animal appetites, and create an alienated and dysfunctional personal reality.

“This used to be America,” argued a protester outside a health-care town hall meeting in Reston, Va., after a police officer threatened him with arrest for holding up a sign with a picture critical of Barack Obama.

The officer’s response?

“It ain’t no more, OK?”

A video of the town hall held earlier this week by Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va., shows an unnamed protester standing on school grounds carrying a sign that read “Organizing for National Socialist Health Care – The Final Solution” and depicted Barack Obama in the Joker’s makeup.

Officer Wesley Cheeks Jr. then told the protester that even though others were holding signs, his sign was unacceptable because of the depiction of Obama.

“But you got this with a picture,” Cheeks said, explaining why the protester was being singled out from the others. “That’s the difference. This has got a picture on it. That don’t have a picture on it.

“Sir, leave the picture down,” the officer said. “If you put the picture back up, you’ll be charged with trespassing.”

Inhofe added that he didn’t need to read the full helathcare legislation before deciding to vote against it.

The Pentagon Wants Authority to Post Almost 400,000 Military Personnel in U.S.

By Matthew Rothschild, August 12, 2009

The Pentagon has approached Congress to grant the Secretary of Defense the authority to post almost 400,000 military personnel throughout the United States in times of emergency or a major disaster.

This request has already occasioned a dispute with the nation’s governors. And it raises the prospect of U.S. military personnel patrolling the streets of the United States, in conflict with the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878.

In June, the U.S. Northern Command distributed a “Congressional Fact Sheet” entitled “Legislative Proposal for Activation of Federal Reserve Forces for Disasters.” That proposal would amend current law, thereby “authorizing the Secretary of Defense to order any unit or member of the Army Reserve, Air Force Reserve, Navy Reserve, and the Marine Corps Reserve, to active duty for a major disaster or emergency.”

Taken together, these reserve units would amount to “more than 379,000 military personnel in thousands of communities across the United States,” explained

Paul Stockton, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense and America’s Security Affairs, in a letter to the National Governors Association, dated July 20.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — Beer drinkers beware: The cost of a cold one is going up.

Brewers across the globe are hiking prices to compensate for lower sales volumes and higher commodity costs.

Anheuser-Busch InBev, the world’s largest brewer and maker of Budweiser, announced plans to raise prices Tuesday.

“We plan on taking price increases on a majority of volume and in a majority of markets this fall,” Anheuser-Busch InBev said in a statement. “The increase helps cover some input costs.”

The U.S.-Belgian brewer said prices will go up “across different price tiers,” including its high and low-end brands.

MillerCoors – the maker of popular beers Miller Lite, Coors Lite and Blue Moon — is also raising prices in some markets. But these hikes are part of the company’s regular fall increases and are “more in line with catching up with costs and commodity prices rather than the economic environment,” said Julian Green, director of media relations for MillerCoors.

Obama has desecrated September 11: Is there nothing sacred to this Marxist low life?
The Collins Report ^ | August 27, 2009 | Kevin “Coach” Collins

Posted on Thursday, August 27, 2009 9:04:56 AM by jmaroneps37

Barack Obama has a sick surprise for America on September 11 this year. This unpatriotic Marxist hack slipped through a bill that turns the nation’s solemn day of remembrance into a perverse celebration of socialism.

This is a gross insult to our American heroes who lost their lives on that terrible day. They deserve our sincere remembrance, not socialist bilge from the very type of people whose policies invited the attacks to begin with.

More Questions for President Obama
08-26-2009 Economic Policy Journal
From Robert Ringer: None of the criminality of the Obama administration would be possible without the explicit (or, at the very least, implicit) approval of the media. Can you imagine a presidential press conference where, instead of asking Der Fuhrbama about his dogs or his latest beer summit, they asked him questions such as: “You told Joe the Plumber that you believe in spreading the wealth around. Since the Constitution doesn’t allow you to do that, from whom did you acquire the moral authority to take people’s earnings by force and arbitrarily hand them to others?” “You are on video in 2003 saying that you believe in a single-payer healthcare system. Why are you now telling the American public that you merely want a ‘government option’ added to our existing system? Were you lying in 2003, or are you lying now?” “How do you reconcile the fact that, within a short space of time, you said that the Medicare system is a perfect example

“Whoever turns against the social order which I am building up, will be shot down without hesitation . . . . Every attempt to topple the state by force will be drowned in blood . . . I believe personally that so long as there are nine thousand men in a state who are ready to go to prison for an idea, then an affair is not lost. Only when the last man of them succumbs to despair is it all over. So long as a man remains to hold high a banner with a believing heart, then nothing is lost. And I say this with icy calm, if the German people is (sic) not ready to stand up for its own survival, well and good . . . then let it disappear!” Hitler on January 27, 1942 Midday (Source: Hitler Close-Up, Henry Picker and Heinrich Hoffmann.

Obama and “Redistributive Change”. His real agenda [Victor Davis Hanson]
NRO ^ | August 26, 2009 | Victor Davis Hanson

Posted on Wednesday, August 26, 2009 8:07:32 AM by Tolik

Forget the recession and the “uninsured.” Obama has bigger fish to fry.

If we believe that Obama is trying to end the recession or
fix the health-care system, we’ll miss his real agenda.

The first seven months of the Obama administration seemingly make no sense. Why squander public approval by running up astronomical deficits in a time of pre-existing staggering national debt?

Why polarize opponents after promising bipartisan transcendence?

Why create vast new programs when the efficacy of big government is already seen as dubious?

But that is exactly the wrong way to look at these first seven months of Obamist policy-making.

Take increased federal spending and the growing government absorption of GDP. Given the resiliency of the U.S. economy, it would have been easy to ride out the recession. In that case we would still have had to deal with a burgeoning and unsustainable annual federal deficit that would have approached $1 trillion.

Instead, Obama may nearly double that amount of annual indebtedness with more federal stimuli and bailouts, newly envisioned cap-and-trade legislation, and a variety of fresh entitlements. Was that fiscally irresponsible? Yes, of course.

Jesus Christ – ‘Hate Criminal?’
By Rev. Ted Pike
8-25-9

If Jesus walked the earth today in Canada and most European countries, He would be an oft-convicted “hate criminal.” In some hate laws countries it is now an indictable offense to publicly criticize Jesus’ primary target: sinners in need of God’s love and salvation!

Five years ago, a northern Canadian Christian called to tell me he had been passing out gospel tracts in his town when a police officer informed him that provincial law now banned such “hate speech.” If he kept witnessing, he would be arrested.

In Holland, Dutch relatives plead with us to keep hate laws from coming to America. There, anyone who publicly criticizes “sinners” (such as fornicators, adulterers, or homosexuals) faces arrest.

In Iceland, virtually any critical public speech is a hate crime.

In England, even wearing a cross is a hate crime. The government sees it as judgmental against non-Christians.

On May 27, 1964, President Lyndon Johnson had telephone conversations about Vietnam with McGeorge Bundy, his national security adviser, and Sen. Richard Russell, chairman of the Armed Services Committee. First, to Bundy, he said: “It just worries the hell out of me. I don’t see what we can ever hope to get out of there. … I don’t think that we can fight them 10,000 miles away from home and ever get anywhere. … I don’t think it’s worth fighting for, and I don’t think we can get out. It’s just the biggest damn mess I ever saw. … What the hell is Vietnam worth to me? … What is it worth to this country?”

In a second, 20-minute conversation that day with his friend Sen. Russell, he said: “I’ve got lots of trouble. What do you think about this Vietnam thing?” Russell responded: “It’s the damn worst mess I ever saw. … I’d get out. … It isn’t important a damn bit.”

Marines, Camp Lejeune, Water…Cancer!

EXCERPTS

“For three decades, dry-cleaning chemicals and industrial solvents laced the water used by local Marines and their families. Mike Partain and at least 19 others developed male breast cancer.”

” One night in April 2007, as Mike Partain hugged his wife before going to bed, she felt a small lump above his right nipple. A mammogram — a “man-o-gram,” he called it — led to a diagnosis of male breast cancer. Six days later, the 41-year-old insurance adjuster had a mastectomy.”

“The Marine Corps knowingly poisoned their own people,” Partain recently said in his living room, surrounded by stacks of military documents and water analysis reports. “They were told about the water, and they did nothing. Nothing. And then they lied about it.”

Who Is Behind Quashing the Birth Certificate Issue?
Canada Free Press ^ | 8/25/09 | Joan Swirsky

Posted on Tuesday, August 25, 2009 5:47:30 PM by AJMCQ

Back in October of 2008, when the subject of Obama’s Constitutional eligibility to be president of the United States was just a blip on the radar screen of public awareness, I wrote an article about how easy it was to find my then -92-year-old mother’s birth certificate.

Frankly, I didn’t think finding my mother’s birth certificate was possible, given the fact that she had been born in a farmhouse in Storrs, CT, along with nine of her 10 siblings, to parents who didn’t speak English. Despairing that she would never be “qualified” to receive the care [in a nursing home} that she desperately needed, I set about to find the document, which I was sure had vanished in the unreliable record-keeping of 1913. When I called the third number, I explained to the woman who answered the phone that I was “asking something impossible.” I gave her my mother’s first name and her father’s last name. Within four minutes, she said, “Here it is!” When I expressed my amazement, the woman said: “That’s nothing…we’re routinely asked to find birth certificates from the 1800s, and we do that all the time!” Total time it took me to find my mother’s 1913, born-in-a-farmhouse birth certificate: 10 minutes!

Why the Washington Post Censored Robert Novak

By Cliff Kincaid Monday, August 24, 2009

In his book, The Prince of Darkness, the late journalist Robert Novak described how the Washington Post, which carried his columns, censored one of them. The censored column concerned the activities in Washington, D.C. of Cuban agent-of-influence Orlando Letelier. Novak describes how the Post’s editorial page editor, Philip Geyelin, “spiked” the column because of “displeasure with the column’s content.”

Letelier, a Chilean Marxist working for Cuba, had been manipulating the media and Congress before his death from a car bomb in 1976. Novak had received Letelier’s incriminating briefcase papers, recovered after his death.

“I retell this story because the incident was so unusual in my long, friendly relationship with the Washington Post,” Novak said. Novak was always a strong anti-communist, just like Accuracy in Media founder Reed Irvine, who also covered the significance of the Letelier briefcase papers.

The story is worth retelling now, not only because of the passing of this great journalist, but because America’s enemies continue to be very well organized in Washington, D.C., especially in regard to the “new Cuba”-Venezuela.

The Post has long been blind to the activities of communist agents in the nation’s capital. Consider the coverage of Hugo Chávez’s Venezuela. The August 24 edition of the paper has an excellent editorial about what Chávez is doing to silence the opposition in Venezuela, threaten his neighbors, and oppose America’s national security interests in Latin America. The editorial is even critical of how the Obama Administration has handled the problem.
