Obama Commits Himself To War

Under pressure from U.S. drones many Pashtuns in Pakistan will move from the areas in the tribal lands into the cities and will eventually fight the Pakistani government there. Recent days already saw deadly clashes between internally displaced persons and the police. With the fighting brought into major cities, the Pakistani government will lose even more legitimation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just where the adults who are supposed to be guiding US foreign policy were when Obama and his advisors came up with this mound of steaming excrement, and dubbed it "an intelligent foreign policy decision".

Freedom Rider: Opposing Obama

This weekend's pitifully small peace demonstration in the nation's capitol reveals a near-totally demobilized U.S. Left mired in such timidity and delusion, activists fear to mention Barack Obama's name when denouncing the wars he so aggressively prosecutes. "The new president, who makes no secret of his intention to continue the previous administration's war of terror, escaped serious scrutiny and the condemnation he deserves." Forgetting that power concedes nothing without a demand, the Left shrinks from making real demands of the actual president in power.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama is just a very bright, very attractively packaged warmonger, no different from his predecessor in terms of the kind of geopolitical outcome he has promised to achieve for those to whom he holds himself accountable (and I can assure you, these folks are NOT "We the People".

But I would also observe that true conservatives (like Ron Paul, for whom I have an enormous amount of respect) also find this consistent "wars without end" approach to geopolitics truly abhorrent. They know that this kind of behavior on the part of any country puts that country in both moral, and economic, peril.

Paul had two main problems in the 2008 campaign; he wasn't any where near telegenic enough to be elected, and he was telling the American people the truth about what was going to happen if we continued on the road the previous president had this country traveling.

His assessment, unfortunately, has become prophetic.

Obama will face a defiant world on foreign trip

Despite his immense popularity around the world, Mr. Obama will confront resentment over American-style capitalism and resistance to his economic prescriptions when he lands in London on Tuesday for the Group of 20 summit meeting of industrial and emerging market nations plus the European Union.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What Obama appears to not realize - or perhaps he doesn't care - that the US's strident assurances about how Western finance, based on the concept of fractional banking, will save the world's economy, has brought world economy to a standstill.

He appears not to realize - or to care - that every time a US- piloted drone somewhere kills women, kids, and the elderly, this country is creating another generation of young radicals are righteously and rightfully angry. That anger will have only one way to express itself, and that doesn't at all augur well for the future of peace on this planet.

He appears not to realize - or to care - that US military misadventures around the world to steal resources - rather than acquire them through treaties, as Russia has done - make us look as though we have a "psychotic thug" class of juveniles running this country.

He appears not to realize - or care - that the billions of dollars sent to Israel - a country doing its level best to ethnically cleanse every Palestinian from any part of its territory, does not make us look like an honest broker to the rest of the Middle East, or the world.

And unfortunately for this President, those intellectual capabilities with which he is remarkably endowed, mean nothing if the only guiding emotion in his life is hubris.

Hubris, like ignorance, should be painful.

Republicans run from, not on, Schwarzenegger's record

Reporting from Sacramento -- For years, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has treated fellow Republicans with a combination of indifference and thinly veiled contempt.

Now, as they vie to succeed him in 2010, the party's two leading candidates for governor are responding in similar fashion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Amid all this bickering and backbiting, it appears that the current crop of legislators have really forgotten who they work for: the citizens of the state of California. The only goal is winning - and holding - a position in state government, period, end of discussion, with these people. And people are voting with their feet to "get the heck out of Dodge", before the situation gets worse.

As reported on Dec 23, 2008 at:

http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/world/2008-12/23/content_7332084.htm

"From 2007 to 2008, California had the biggest net loss of people moving to other states — more than 144,000 people. It was followed by New York, Michigan, New Jersey and Illinois."

This is the first time in a long time we've looked at numbers like that from California.

And they may well get worse.

Response to 'U.S. Perpetuates Mass Killings In Iraq by Peter Phillips'

Hello, thank you for your efforts towards bringing monumental criminals to justice. However I noted that in your editorial, you focussed on Mr. G. W. Bush and other front-men in the White House. That was also the focus of the courageous Congressman Dennis Kucinich. And while you concluded with “We owe our children and ourselves a future without the shame of mass murder on our collective conscience.”, there is no mention of the real criminals who continually replace new faces in the White House. How to bring those monumental criminals to justice? They remain largely unidentified and the blame is taken by the “effects”, not the cause.

Sailor, 32, is fatally shot on destroyer, Navy says

Gregory R. Egan, 32, of Ridgefield, Conn., died Sunday afternoon at a local hospital, Lt. Cmdr. Brad Fagan said. The shooting occurred aboard the ship while it was undergoing maintenance at BAE Systems San Diego Ship Repair.

Egan's mother, Mary Corriveau, told the Danbury News-Times that her son died of a gunshot wound to the head when another sailor's weapon misfired. Fagan said he could not confirm those details, pending the completion of an investigation by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The ship is in the repair ship, not at sea, not in combat, not even in port, but in a repair facility, and a sailor not only is carrying a loaded weapon but is handling it in such a way that it misfires????

I don't think so.

Farmers Lead a Bid to Create 2 Californias

So it is that in recent weeks Mr. Rogers, whose previous political involvement amounted to little more than writing a check to a favored candidate — has suddenly become a leader in a secessionist movement bent on cleaving California in two.

Who Is Arming the Mexican Drug Cartels?

The state, Mexican authorities and their US propaganda arm, known in most circles as the Mainstream Media, have recently embarked on a huge disinformation campaign to demonize the American gun owner as the supplier of weapons to the Mexican drug cartels. Everyone in the media, with the possible exception of Lou Dobbs, has joined in the campaign of lies.

Shown here, on a CBS special, is video proof of the lies and disinformation by CBS, US and Mexican authorities. Anderson Cooper and Janet Napolitano are either ignorant or complicit in the myth that M-203s, RPGs and hand grenades are readily available to the American gun consumer. Most intelligent folks, and those without a state sponsored agenda, realize these weapons are usually only available to the military.

Obama says single-payer is off because taxes would be too high to pay for it!

I now pay $6000 a year in premiums and get nothing paid until I pay $6000 out of pocket.

Obama: "The problem is, is that we have what's called a legacy, a set of institutions that aren't that easily transformed....And so what evolved in America was an employer-based system. It may not be the best system if we were designing it from scratch. But that's what everybody is accustomed to. That's what everybody is used to. It works for a lot of Americans."

Single-payer health reform bill introduced in Senate

Would save $400 billion on bureaucracy, enough to cover all 46 million uninsured Americans

"We are confident that Sen. Sanders' bill will accelerate the national drive for the only reform that we know will work," Young said. "A majority of physicians endorse such an approach. Fifty-nine percent of U.S. physicians support national health insurance. Two-thirds of the public also supports such a remedy. We remember well that President Obama once acknowledged that single-payer national health insurance was the best way to go. It still is."

States Rebellion Pending

Our Colonial ancestors petitioned and pleaded with King George III to get his boot off their necks. He ignored their pleas, and in 1776, they rightfully declared unilateral independence and went to war.

Today it’s the same story except Congress is the one usurping the rights of the people and the states, making King George’s actions look mild in comparison. Our constitutional ignorance—perhaps contempt, coupled with the fact that we’ve become a nation of wimps, sissies and supplicants—has made us easy prey for Washington’s tyrannical forces. But that might be changing a bit. There are rumblings of a long overdue re-emergence of Americans’ characteristic spirit of rebellion.

Dallas police chief apologizes for conduct of officer who drew gun on NFL player

By STEVE THOMPSON and TANYA EISERER / The Dallas Morning News

Dallas Police Chief David Kunkle stood in front of a dozen news cameras this afternoon at police headquarters to apologize for the behavior of an officer who stopped a family outside a hospital emergency room.

Kunkle said Officer Robert Powell has been placed on paid administrative leave in connection with an incident last week in which he stopped a family rushing to visit a dying mother, detaining them for 13 minutes to write a traffic ticket.

The New California Gold Rush

"I'm here to find gold," said Kevin Brown. "I'm a studio lighting technician in Hollywood, between the writers strike that happened last year, and the Screen Actors Guild, whatever they want to call it. Lately I've had to turn to having to do it for extra cash."

Geologists estimate that during the gold rush of 1849 in California, about 80 percent of the gold was never found. Today, with the price of gold soaring and the economy falling, the idea of panning, digging or diving for precious metal has become serious business.

"There's definitely gold nuggets down in the bottom here," Brown said. "Just a matter of getting 30 feet down lower than any old timer or modern prospector has

"The only way to reduce violence, therefore, is to legalize drugs."

Alexander is considered one of the greatest military leaders of all time. Born in the Greek city of Pella in 356 BC, his conquests extended to most of his known world by the time of his death at age 32. He opened up Greek civilization from the Mediterranean to India, and is regarded as the first to link Europe, Asia, and Africa.

3 Oakland cops killed in 2 related incidents

Three Oakland police sergeants were shot and killed and a fourth officer was critically wounded Saturday in a pair of related incidents that together rank among the deadliest attacks on law enforcement in California history.

A fifth officer, a member of the SWAT team that killed the suspect police held responsible for the shootings, was treated for minor injuries and released.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I apologize, but given the actions of the police in recent months (as evidenced by stories further down this page today) I am having a very hard time sympathizing with their fate or condemning the shooter.

Treasury Plans to Offer Loans to Buy Bad Assets - Latest Geithner Flimflam - Government-backed 95% equity loans to banks to buy toxics assets from other banks at a steep discount.

The New York Times Edmund L. Andrews, Eric Dash and Graham Bowley

WASHINGTON — The Treasury Department is expected to unveil early next week its long-delayed plan to buy as much as $1 trillion in troubled mortgages and related assets from financial institutions, according to people close to the talks.

Industry analysts estimate that the nation’s banks are holding at least $2 trillion in troubled assets, mostly residential and commercial mortgages made at the height of the housing bubble.

Although the details of the F.D.I.C. part were still being finalized on Friday, it is expected the government would provide the overwhelming bulk of the money — possibly more than 95 percent — through loans or direct investments of taxpayer money.

Of Patriots and Assassins

Realizing the assaults would not end, Freeman last week withdrew, saying, "I do not believe the National Intelligence Council could function effectively while its chair was under constant attack by unscrupulous people with a passionate attachment to the views of a political faction of a foreign country."

The foreign country is Israel; the political faction Likud.

Nor did Freeman shrink at naming the source of the noxious campaign of slander against him.

"The tactics of the Israel lobby plumb the depths of dishonor and indecency and include character assassination, selective misquotation, the willful distortion of the record, the fabrication of falsehoods and an utter disregard for the truth."

Popular state sovereignty bills draw comparison to Civil War posturing

The threat is only implied in more than two-dozen state sovereignty bills making the rounds in legislatures across the country, except for a New Hampshire bill where the authors didn't hold back. Any law infringing on the state's right to self govern would trigger the dissolution of the nation: "All powers previously delegated to the United States of America by the Constitution ... shall revert to the several states individually."

Shuttle-Riding Bat Dies The Most Glorious Death Imaginable

Bereft of his ability to fly and with nowhere to go, a courageous bat climbed aboard our Discovery with stars in his weak little eyes. The launch commenced, and Spacebat trembled as his little mammalian body was gently pushed skyward. For the last time, he felt the primal joy of flight; for the first, the indescribable feeling of ascending toward his dream—a place far away from piercing screeches and crowded caves, stretching forever into fathomless blackness.

Whether he was consumed in the exhaust flames or frozen solid in the stratosphere is of no concern to us. We know that Spacebat died, but his dream will live on in all of us.

Google Filters “The Give Act” - Mandatory Volunteerism

Does anyone know anything about HR 1388 and exactly what it is?? It will create a Uniformed Force of 250,000 members, that’s a force greater than the number of troops we now have in Iraq, a virtual army. A force of 5,000 per state if evenly divided, more realistically the force will be deployed according to the size and population of each state. It talks about a volunteer force, yet speaks of 3 year obligations as in a Draft, and a pay scale of from $17,000 to $22,000.

Texas jail was an Animal House, authorities say

For months, perhaps longer, the Montague County Jail was "Animal House" meets Mayberry. Inside the small brick building across from the courthouse, inmates had the run of the place, having sex with their jailer girlfriends, bringing in recliners, taking drugs and chatting on cell phones supplied by friends or guards, according to authorities. They also disabled some of the surveillance cameras and made weapons out of nails.

The doors to two groups of cells didn't lock, but apparently no one tried to escape — perhaps because they had everything they needed inside.

CONFIRMED! German school shooter was taking anti-depressants!

Authorities late last week began to think they had something of an answer for the paper. Kretschmer, announced minister of justice Heribert Rech, had left a message on a chatroom the night before he launched his assault on Albertville. He said he was "fed up of his life" and added that "everyone laughs at me, no one recognises my potential". Chillingly, the post went on: "I have weapons here and tomorrow morning I will go to my former school and I will really administer a grilling."

Patriot or crackpot? Seattle man's mission to prosecute Bush

Ask Bob Alexander how often he's heard the word "quixotic" recently. The approximate answer: all the time.

Of all the people who read Charles Manson prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi's best-selling "The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder," this 57-year-old Seattle coffee merchant is the only one jolted to act on it in a substantial way. The SuperBeans proprietor has become a super-activist.

With the help of a handful of volunteers and donations, Alexander has sent 2,200 copies of Bugliosi's hardcover to prosecutors around the country.

Now he and his volunteers are following up with each one of them by phone and e-mail, as well as gathering signatures for petitions urging the prosecutors to indict the former president.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bob is a long time contributor to this website and can be reached at http://www.superbeans.com/.

Yes, he carries the Kona coffee. :)

New Hampshire in uproar over US Administration

A group in the US State of New Hampshire is becoming more vocal in its fight for independence. They believe the federal government has overstepped its role and intruded upon their states' rights.

A group calling themselves the Free State Project says the only option is to let states govern themselves and set their own rules – much they already do on issues like firearm legislation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Historical note: New Hampshire was the first state to sign the Declaration of Independence.
