WordPress creator Mullenweg is many bloggers’ best friend
            By Jefferson Graham, USA TODAY
            SAN FRANCISCO — While still in high school in Texas, Matt Mullenweg created blogging software he hoped would be easier and prettier to use. Less than six years later, Mullenweg’s WordPress has become the No. 2 blogging platform behind Google’s Blogger, signing up 10,000 new bloggers daily.

            WordPress has become so entrenched on the Web that many of the biggest names use it now — a roster that includes CNN, Fox News and The New York Times, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Coca-Cola and General Electric, along with millions of ordinary bloggers.

            “People might start with LiveJournal or Blogger, but if they get serious, they’ll graduate to WordPress. We try to cater to the more powerful users,” says Mullenweg, 25.

            WordPress.com— where folks sign up to create their blogs — was the 37th-most-visited site in December, attracting 24 million visitors, according to measurement firm ComScore Media Metrix. Worldwide, WordPress hosts 12 million blogs, which attracted just over 200 million readers in December.

            WordPress is free for anyone to use on their own. Business customers who want technical support pay $2,500 to $5,000 a year through Automattic, the start-up Mullenweg founded in 2005 to operate WordPress. Automattic also offers fee-based anti-spam software services.

            WordPress is “open-source” software, which means that anyone can access and contribute to the program code, with plug-ins and downloads that can take a WordPress blog to new heights. Examples include ways to add contact forms, reader statistics, comment spam filters and “page-flip” photo galleries to your blog.

            It was the open-source approach that persuaded Danny Sullivan, who runs the Search Engine Land website, to switch recently to the WordPress platform from rival Movable Type, which is owned by Six Apart.

            So many of Search Engine Land’s editors and programmers preferred working with WordPress, “that it just made it easier,” Sullivan says.

            Software has a big fan: CNN

            CNN runs 30 blogs, and they’re all created the same way the general consumer does it: Programmers go to WordPress.com, sign up and create.

              In an interview with Esquire magazine, Lou Dobbs once again defends his repeated requests for President Obama’s birth certificate, calling it a “commonsense question” that has “been used in the extreme left to create a toxicity that is just unbelievable.” In an interview headlined “What I’ve Learned,” Dobbs once again lashes out at people who have criticized his insistence that Obama’s birth certificate is unsatisfactory: I ask a question, and I am attacked from the extreme left as a quote-unquote birther. I mean, what the hell is that? When you can create a controversy by asking what seems to me…

              This lenghty Report by Steve Baldwin is well worth the read… Is Obama Stupid and Lazy? Although that’s quite a provocative question, evidence is mounting that Obama may not be as intelligent as his supporters and cheerleaders in the media constantly assure us. The reality may be that Obama is mostly a creation of the liberal media. Indeed, the more we dig into his past, the more we find very little substance and discover how a network of liberal professors, law firms, and others, gave him a pass on performance while he pursued his political agenda. We know very little…

The Associated Press, fronting for the Coakley campaign, has a different take: McCormack stumbled and Meehan tried to help him get up. Take a look at the photo and video in McCormack’s posts and see who you believe—the reporter who was actually there or the reporter who evidently talked to his pal Meehan on the…

            The Old Slouch Hat



            I like the book, Soldiers Of The Sea, by Robert Debs Heinl, Jr., Colonel, USMC, for many reasons. I personally consider it to be the most thorough and detailed account of the Marine Corps as it was. And, I also like it, if for no other reason, the opening pages contain the photograph by Lou Lowery of the actual flag raising at Mount Suribachi, Iwo Jima on 23 February 1945–not, mind you, the photograph by Joe Rosenthal of the “replacement” flag raising which occurred later that same morning. And, the scope of Heinl’s book is from 1775 thru 1962–just as well, after 1962…well, things began to change in many ways for the old Corps soon after that. In any case, this author presents a most thorough and detailed account of Corps history with information on topics of interest that I’ve seen in no other writings.

            I was surprised to read that Colonel Heinl referred to the service hat, or campaign hat as it is  more popularly known, as the “old slouch hat.” Prior to my reading of that I had thought of that term soley as a reference to the Australian campaign-type hat; and this caused me to look into the matter a bit further. But then I recalled that there was that old song by Hank Snow, from back in the 1950s…

            To the nightmare of Haiti, the Americans are coming
            By Judi McLeod

            In the nightmare of Haiti, Americans were first to respond just as Americans have always responded, recession-bound or not.

            This is the giving spirit of America in action.  Not waiting for anyone else, just doing what is necessary to help, without boasts, without expecting anything back.  Simply America.

            America has always been there for others and always will be.

            Even a falling-in-the-polls President Obama whose conduct since election has been to belittle the spirit of America and its people is cashing in today on that generosity, promising to a shocked and grief stricken people his “unwavering support” and a “swift and coordinated effort”.

            Beleaguered Americans losing their homes and jobs will rush in to help Haitians with food, temporary shelters; emergency service of every kind.

            The American military, a welcome sight the world over even though politicians try to state otherwise, will be there for the people beginning with rescue and recovery efforts, remaining to build water purification facilities, repairing infrastructure and rebuilding.

            End Times, The Lion Lays Down With The Lamb, And Satan Don’t Like It.

            End Times, The Lion Lays Down With The Lamb, And Satan Don’t Like It.

            Posted on Wednesday, January 13, 2010 5:31:39 PM by Armaggedon

            The Lamb is the Christ Spirit and the root of Christianity. The lion is the lion of Judah, the root of the Jewish People. The time is at hand where the two lay down together in peace as one. Jacob the father of Judah blessed him for all times until the end times. Genesis 49:1.

            “And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.

            Jacob blest Judah. 49:8-10.

            “Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee.

            Judah is a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion, who shall rouse him up?

            The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.”

            Judah is the root of the Jewish people. And the sceptre of inspiration has been with Judah, the Jewish people, since then and so much has poured forth from this people in all fields of human endeaver. However, when the Lamb came the priesthod and establishment of this people did not say at that time “Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.” The sceptre was not passed. Shiloh is He that cometh in the name of the Lord. Shiloh is the title of the Messiah. We must not deny the Lord again.

            Jesus said. John 23:37-39.

            “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killeth the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

            Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.

            For I say unto you, ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.”

            This is all being fulfilled in these last days. The Lion of Judah lays down with the Lamb. Back in 1939 Germany attacked Poland and World War II began. With it the holocaust and horrific murder of 6 million Jews by the Nazis. In 1941 Japan attacked Pearl Harbor and America entered World War II. Seven years after America entered the war there was a vote held in the UN. In 1948 America, 7 years after she entered the war, lead the drive for the establishment of the independant State of Israel. Israel was voted independance and the forces of Islam attacked her. Israel overcame and became a free nation,

            The bond between Israel and America was established. The Lion and the Lamb. America is a Nation based upon Judeo-Christian roots no matter what Obama said in Egypt. Now we see the testinng of that bond and connection. 70 years from the Nazi attack on Polnd and the start of World War II in 1939, we have the inaugeration of Barak Hussein Obama in 2009.

            America in its founding, acknowledged the Christ Spirit and Jesus who made that Spirit flesh. Now Christianity is seen by the ruling elite as politiically incorrect and must be put out of view. The Christian God is seen as being out of fashion, while all manner of abominatioon is being flaunted everywhere.

            America is a leading light of Christ Spirit and compassion, which should represent the Lamb of God. Judah, the Jewish people need to say “Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.” America and Israel can lead the way in ths victory together.

            However, Satan is not pleased. 70 years after World War II Obama comes into power and after these 70 years, comes 7 years of testing those who love and serve Christ. The first year of the Obama Nation, his conquest of power, is almost over. On January 20, 2010 begins year two, the time of the red horse of apocalypse, Revelation 6:4.

            “And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.”

            Obama, Commander In Chief shall defend what he won through deceipt, by violance. There will be lies, blame and violant destractions. All this is meant to take people away from the truth. The answer is Jesus, the way and the truth and the life. If people would only praise God and aknowledge our Lord Jesus Christ, in spirit and in truth, we would share in the victory of the kingdom of heaven on earth right now. If we rely on the might and power of this world and deny Christ we lose everything.

            Jacob descriibed this time and all the prophets did as well. It will appear that all hell is breaking loose. That is the passing away of the old kingdom of human rebellion. Heaven is available on eath if we will praise God and acknowledge the Christ Light that shines. John1:4-5.

            “In Him was life; and the life was the light of men.

            And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”

            It is time to shine and comprehend the light. Let those who represent the Lion of Judah and the Lamb of God praise God and come together under God and lead. That is being a Light unto the nations.

Brown is running close to Coakley in a state no one would have believed could possibly be in play, since it is a special election for what Democrats call “Ted Kennedy’s Seat.” But in a debate with Coakley this week, Brown had would could be a “campaign-turning” moment when he corrected Moderator David Gergen and said,…

            U.S. Troops Asked If They Would Shoot American Citizens
            Iraq vet exposes how he was trained to round up Americans in martial law exercise, asked if he would kill his own friends and family

            Monday, February 4th, 2008
            U.S. troops are being trained to conduct round-ups, confiscate guns and shoot American citizens, including their own friends and family members, as part of a long-standing program to prepare for the declaration of martial law, according to a soldier who recently returned from Iraq.
            We received an e mail from “Scott”, a member of a pipefitters union that runs an apprenticeship program called Helmets To Hard Hats, which according to its website, “Is a national program that connects National Guard, Reserve and transitioning active-duty military members with quality career training and employment opportunities within the construction industry.”

            Scott writes that his company hired a soldier who had recently returned from Iraq, who told him that U.S. troops were being quizzed on whether or not they would be prepared to shoot their own friends and family members during a national state of emergency in America. “I have become very close to this young man and have gained his respect and trust,” writes Scott. “I want you to know that he informed me about one particular training exercise his superiors made them perform. It was concerning the rounding up of American citizens that disobey any type of martial law or in other words any type of infringement on our freedoms.”

            “He was asked if he could shoot his friends or family members if ordered to do so. At the time he said he could,” writes Scott.

            Scott says that the soldier later “had time to clear his head” and realize the truth, recanting his vow to kill his own countrymen if ordered to do so.

            ———————————————————————————-

            The issue of whether U.S. troops would be prepared to round-up, disarm and if necessary shoot Americans who disobeyed orders during a state of martial law is a question that military chiefs have been attempting to answer for at least 15 years.

            Its known origins can be traced back to an October 1994 Marine questionnaire out of the Twentynine Palms Marine Base in California. Recruits were asked 46 questions, including whether they would kill U.S. citizens who refused to surrender their firearms.

            Documentary film maker Alex Jones brought to light similar training programs that were taking place across the country in the late 90’s which revolved around U.S. Marines being trained to arrest American citizens and take them to internment camps.

            During one such program in Oakland California, dubbed “Operation Urban Warrior,” Marines refused to answer if they would target American citizens for gun confiscation if ordered to do so.

            During hurricane Katrina, National Guard units were ordered to confiscate guns belonging to New Orleans residents.

            As we first exposed in May 2006, Clergy Response Teams are being trained by the federal government and FEMA to “quell dissent” and pacify citizens to obey the government in the event of a declaration of martial law.

            Pastors and other religious representatives are being taught to become secret police enforcers who teach their congregations to “obey the government” in preparation for the implementation of martial law, property and firearm seizures, mass vaccination programs and forced relocation.

            Many scoffed at our original story, which was based on the testimony of a whistleblower who was asked to participate in the program. Claims that the story was a conspiracy theory soon evaporated when a mainstream KSLA news report confirmed the existence of the program.

            The experiences of U.S. troops in the worst areas of Iraq, where soldiers are ordered to go door to door and arrest all men of military age as well as confiscate their weapons, is a mere portend of what is being planned for America if these training programs ever come to fruition.

            http://www.geoffmetcalf.com/419.html

            Date 30-Jul-94 17:51 The following COMBAT ARMS SURVEY was sent to Geoff Metcalf by a U.S. Marine, with a (non-anonymous) note explaining that the survey was given May 10, 1994, at the Twenty-nine Palms (CA) Marine base, to a number of Marines from different units which had participated in either: Operation “Just Cause,” “Desert Storm” or “Restore Hope.”

            The July 11 New American (“Police State Update”, p. 10), discusses a telephone interview with the marine, who said that he was not aware of similar surveys being administered at other bases and that his impression was that the survey was research for a [Navy] commander’s master’s degree.

            The marine also reported an article in the base’s weekly newspaper, documenting a March ‘94 “high-profile tour” of the Twenty-nine Palms base by a delegation from the Council on Foreign Relations.

            The following survey questions, except for the last one, were not reprinted in the July 11 New American article. They were forwarded by the magazine to the New Jersey Conservative PAC (NJCPAC, 2 Thornton Lane, Piscataway NJ 08854-5044 ph/fx:908-463-0797), which also reports that preliminary fact-finding at the base indicates that the “surveys came through the chain of command.” The questions are reproduced here with NJCPAC’s permission.

            NJCPAC asks that anyone who knows of other administrations of this or similar COMBAT ARMS SURVEY(s) pls contact them or Congressmen Bob Dornan (ph:202-225-2965) or Duncan Miller (ph:202-225-5672 fx:202-225-0235).

            Adobe Reader 9.3 patch addresses critical JavaScript security issue (Applies to all Windows + Apple)
            Betanews ^ | January 13, 2010 | Scott M. Fulton, III

            Posted on Wednesday, January 13, 2010 3:04:04 PM by Wooly

            Usually on a Patch Tuesday, the discussion turns to Microsoft; but amid a very light round of Windows fixes, it’s Adobe in the spotlight today. Last month, a serious and potentially easily exploitable vulnerability was found in a JavaScript API call, DocMedia.NewPlayer — a situation where an intentionally crafted PDF file could invoke the call, deallocate the memory allocated when the media player is generated, and then execute the code in that de-allocated memory, without need for privilege.

            Adobe Reader 9.3 was released today, right on schedule, to address this issue. In the meantime, the company is realizing the changing nature of the platform business, and how Reader/Acrobat and Flash are now just as susceptible to potential attacks as any other platform, including Windows. Interestingly, the cross-platform nature of the Acrobat platform means that Mac users were just as susceptible to this exploit as Windows users.

            Beyond today’s update, Adobe is busy working on non-improvised means for improving its platform users’ security long-term. Already last October, it began implementing what it calls the JavaScript Blacklist Framework — a way for its platforms to maintain actively updated lists of non-trusted sources for executable content.

              According to a Tea Party Group leader who spoke with Senator Jim Demint yesterday, The Senator’s office is suspicious of the statements being put out by the Reid/Pelosi closed door negotiations on health care. Publicly they are putting the word out that there is great disagreement in their ranks and it may not be until February. when a bill is ready. It could well be misdirection to keep the public from going crazy and taking action believing that there is plenty of time to stop this bill. We need to get the call out to everyone we know to not…

            What’s Your Constitution I.Q.?

            Posted on Wednesday, January 13, 2010 1:28:27 PM by Lucky9teen

            Welcome to ConstitutionFacts.com where you’ll see the entire text of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence – and much more! You’ll find interesting insights into the men who wrote the Constitution, how it was created, and how the Supreme Court has interpreted the United States Constitution in the two centuries since its creation.

            The Constitution is certainly the most influential legal document in existence. Since its creation some two hundred years ago, over one hundred countries around the world have used it as a model for their own. And it is a living document. It is one of the world’s oldest surviving constitutions. And, while the Supreme Court continually interprets the U.S. Constitution so as to reflect a rapidly changing world, its basic tenets have remained virtually unchanged since its inception, and unchallenged as well. People quarrel over its interpretation, but never do they question the wisdom of its underlying principles.

            At ConstitutionFacts.com, you’ll begin to see why. You’ll get a taste of some of the Founding Fathers’ thoughts. You’ll see some of the reasoning behind the Supreme Court’s landmark decisions. But, most importantly, you’ll get a feel for the United States Constitution itself and how it is that a document that was written over 200 years ago still plays an integral role in our everyday lives.

            The White House has confirmed that a member of Congress formally has requested that President Obama document information regarding his birth and, therefore, his eligibility to occupy the Oval Office.

            WND previously reported the letter was sent by Rep. Nathan Deal, R-Ga., and also that neither Deal‘s office nor the White House was willing to discuss the situation.


            Rep. Nathan Deal

            Now, according to Jim Galloway, who blogs for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, confirmation has come from two sources that the letter was sent and received.

            “The White House on Thursday confirmed receipt of a letter from U.S. Rep. Nathan Deal that formally asks Barack Obama to address questions about his place of birth – and thus, whether he is qualified to be president,” the report said. “The letter arrived Dec. 10. Beyond that, no one is willing to say much.”

            Galloway wrote, “According to my AJC colleague Bob Keefe in Washington, Todd Smith, Deal’s chief of staff, likewise confirmed that the letter had been sent. But neither Smith nor his boss would comment on its content.”

            Smith told the reporters, “[Deal] just did what he said he was going to do. It’s not news.”

            Galloway reported, “Likewise, White House spokeswoman Gannet Tseggai – while acknowledging receipt of Deal’s letter, declined to release a copy or discuss its content, saying that the issue of Obama’s birth has been addressed repeatedly.”

            (Story continues below)

            // //

            Deal, who is running for governor, said two months ago he would ask Obama to prove his eligibility. At the time, Deal confirmed there was “no reason to think” Obama is not a “legal citizen” but said because of the questions  raised, he should answer.

            “I have looked at the documentation that is publicly available, and it leaves many things to be desired,” Deal said in November, Galloway reported.

            A new media initiative by a group of citizen-journalists reported earlier Deal wrote to Obama. According to the Post and Email, “This forever changes the public discourse.”

            “What does this mean?” the site asks. “This is probably the first time in 233 years of American history that a sitting member of the House of Representatives has officially challenged the legitimacy of a sitting president … one full year into his term.

            Does the Government Own the Whole Economy?

            Posted By admin On January 13, 2010 @ 5:42 am In Prison Planet | 2 Comments

            Wednesday , January 13th, 2010

            In a recent New York Times op-ed [2], economist Robert Shiller (coproducer of the famous housing-price index) recommended that the US government begin to sell claims on fractions of Gross Domestic Product. Besides the practical problems with his proposal, it rests on the premise that the US government owns the entire economy. It will be instructive to parse Shiller’s column to see just how badly his collectivist thinking misleads him.

            Shiller’s Proposal

            To set the context, let’s quote liberally from Shiller’s piece:

            Corporations raise money by issuing both debt and equity, the latter giving investors an implicit share in future profits. Governments should do something like this, too, and not just rely on debt.

            Borrowing a concept from corporate finance, governments could sell a new type of security that commits them to paying shares in national “profit,” as measured by gross domestic product….

            Such securities might help assuage doubts that governments can sustain the deficit spending required to keep sagging economies stimulated and protected from the threat of a truly serious recession. In a recent pair of papers, my Canadian colleague Mark Kamstra at York University and I have proposed a solution. We’d like our countries to issue securities that we call “trills,” short for trillionths.

            Additional Titles

            Below are excerpts from the monologue Glenn Beck presented on his Fox News program, Jan 8th, 2010.

            [“Conspiracies aren’t conspiracies when they’re true and open.

            More and more Americans are finding themselves where I am, in a place where you don’t want to believe the stuff that you now do, even the stuff that you would have thought a year ago was crazy town. But you do believe it because you are honest with yourself, you have promised yourself as I have to seek the truth no matter how many times you think about it, no matter how many times you think oh my gosh what does this mean, to my future and the future of my children. If it makes me a pariah, so be it. It is the truth, not stuff I want to believe.

            Every president has said it. Our founders said it. America is the world’s last and greatest hope you don’t really have a choice but to deal with the facts as you find them if you want to stand as a guardian of freedom. And if you find those facts and you don’t like them, oh well! So be it! They are the facts.”]

            Glenn made this impassioned speech just days after refusing to hear the concerns of callers to his radio show. He branded them with the conspiracy tag not seeming to understand that these were worried and informed Americans. They made an orchestrated effort to get his attention because of their growing unease with the refusal of President Obama to provide any transparency of his background. The media’s complete refusal to hold him accountable on any matter has not made things better. There is very real fear that the sitting President of the United States, Barack Obama, might not be eligible to hold the Office.

              In blogs, interviews and e-mails, “birthers” around the country are reporting surveillance and visits from the U.S. Secret Service, whose agents have questioned – or, as some report, intimidated – them over their insistence that Barack Obama prove his constitutional eligibility to serve as president. As WND reported, Stephen Pidgeon, an attorney for Washington state plaintiffs challenging Obama’s eligibility, grew suspicious in March when his wife and coworkers reported being shadowed by police and three, black SUVs. “We are definitely under surveillance and it’s coordinated with Homeland Security,” Pidgeon alleged. In November, Dale Laudenslager, a member of the American Grand…

When questions about Obama’s eligibility to serve as President arose, I immediately recognized that this could be the biggest political scandal in U.S. history, bigger even than Watergate. The allegations, if true, would have created widespread political turmoil and would have had to involve people, high up people, ignoring and/or covering up facts.
